Beth and John’s Colorful Autumn Wedding at the Pinnacle Ballroom | Cincinnati Wedding Photographer

This wedding is just BURSTING with pretty… I can barely contain myself!  The day started out amazing with Beth’s incredible bridal details: a Maggie Sottero gown, Tiffany jewelry, and intricate bouquet by Amelia Florist.  A friend of Beth’s was kind enough to arrange special entry for us into Dixie Terminal, which made for one of the most GORGEOUS first look […]

Chris & Saki’s Pretty Plein-Air Japanese Celebration | Cincinnati Wedding Photographer

What an incredible wedding!  We took some photos in one of my all-time favorite locations–architectural gem Music Hall, overlooking Washington Park–and then headed to Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park, where Saki and Chris tied the knot in a picturesque green field.  Just before the reception under the pavilion, a terrific storm blew through, complete with rain and […]

The Best of 2014 Photography: a recap of the best photos from this year | Destination Wedding Photographer

What a year it’s been!  2014 was amazing on so many levels.  I met so many incredible people, captured some absolutely wonderful marriages, and got engaged myself!  I couldn’t ask for a better (and busier!) year. I am so lucky to capture each and every moment that my couples entrust me with, and I find it really difficult […]

Beth & Cory’s Unconventional Artistic Wedding at the Cincinnati Art Museum | Cincinnati Wedding Photographer

Last spring, when I first photographed Cory and Beth for their engagement session, there was no doubt in my mind that their wedding was going to be awesome. These two made sure that their big day was truly, completely, unequivocally them.  You’ve gotta see their reversed ‘traditional’ colors (Beth wore black, Cory wore white), Beth’s incredible spiked heels (can you […]

Bloody Marys, Bicycles, and Beaches: Doug & Queena’s Awesome Engagement | Chicago Wedding Photographer

Oh man.  I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun this engagement session was.  We began the morning (yes, morning–don’t you judge us!) with a bloody mary and pizza slice in hand on the awesome patio at Homeslice.  The setting was perfect, the weather was warm, and the light was just begging to be […]

Ohhhh my goodness.  Jimmy and Sydney.  This amazing couple.  This AMAZING wedding.  I don’t know where to begin!! The first thing I noticed back in February while doing Sydney and Jimmy’s engagement session is the way they look at each other.  I mean, they really look at each other.  You can just see the love […]

Wes and Kristina’s Art Deco-Inspired Clifton Wedding | Cincinnati Wedding Photographer

Kristina and Wes are married, and I am VERY excited to post their photos!  There is so, so much I love about these two. I love that they wanted a celebration that would bring their friends and family together, to spend time and talk and laugh with each other through a conversational coffee shop atmosphere (with plenty […]

Sydney And Jimmy’s Chicago Engagement Session | Chicago Wedding Photographer

Shortly after I first talked to Sydney and Jimmy on the phone, Sydney was already brainstorming ideas for engagement photo locations.  Right from that moment, I knew the afternoon we would be spending together was going to be totally awesome! And what a feast of a Chicago photoventure it was!  We started among the towering columns of […]

Whitney + Chris: An Elegant Wedding at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods | Terre Haute Wedding Photographer

When I first met Whitney and Chris in person over dinner at a greasy spoon outside Mason, OH, I asked how big their wedding was going to be. “Big,” they both said.  I should’ve asked, “How big?”  But even if I’d known in advance, I think they still would’ve blown my socks off. After getting […]

Christine and Sam’s Post-Wedding Session

Remember Christine, the awesome bride I posted about that goes from Hospital to gettin’ hitched in 60 seconds flat?  Remember her and Sam’s ridiculously gorgeous contemporary wedding?  Well, to make up for lost time on the big day, we decided to do a post-wedding photo session… two weeks later! Luckily, Christine and Sam were briefly […]
