Tara’s Outdoor River Gorge Bridal Shoot | Cincinnati Wedding Photographer

I love it when a shoot is conceived spontaneously–I was getting my hair styled by the amazingly talented Tara Tussing, and she mentioned that she was getting married in a few weeks.  I asked if she would be interested in doing a bridal photo session after her wedding, and she absolutely was!  Tara wanted to try something artistic and interesting, […]

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 […]

Justine and Christian’s Classic Black Tie Wedding at Meson Sabika | Chicago Wedding Photographer

As soon as I met Christian, I knew he and Justine’s wedding would be a classy, stylish affair–Christian is a Chicago-based DJ who owns his own company, Mode Events, and described to me a beautiful ceremony at St. Francis with one heck of an afterparty at Meson Sabika!

Caitie and Jim’s Contemporary Summer Soiree at the Bluestone | Columbus Wedding Photographer

These two happy lovebirds met as freshmen at OU, and tied the knot in an absolutely gorgeous wedding at the Bluestone in Columbus.  Swathed in eucalyptus leaves and fresh flowers, the rosy richness of the Bluestone’s original carved wood details made for a beautiful backdrop to Caitie and Jim’s emotional vows.  After the ceremony, they went for a lovely stroll […]

Brittany and Eric’s Springtime Chicago Engagement Session | Chicago Wedding Photographer

It was an absolutely gorgeous day in Chi-town, tailor-made for Brittany & Eric’s engagement session.  I couldn’t have asked for better weather or a better couple!  Eric and Brittany are incredibly sweet and fun to be around.  They were super patient while we waited for pedestrians to pass (and then more pedestrians… and a few moooore…) down by […]

Paige & Ethan’s Fun-Filled Winter Engagement Starring Max the Dog | Cincinnati Wedding Photographer

Ethan and Paige are one of the most fun-loving, adventurous couples I’ve ever had the pleasure to shoot.  We headed out to Ault Park and Over-the-Rhine to enjoy one of the last fresh snowfalls of the season and get some awesome photos.  Their dog, Max, is a total sweetheart (and photo ham), and enjoyed playing […]

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 […]

Megan and Bobby’s Outdoor Wedding at the Inn at Oneonta | Melbourne, Kentucky Wedding Photographer

Originally built as a summer home by a New York railroad tycoon in 1851 and carefully restored to pristine condition, The Inn at Oneonta is truly a breathtaking piece of history–and the only remaining piece of the town of Oneonta, which was destroyed by the Flood of 1937.  Over the years, the impressive three-story mansion has […]
