Hannah & Michael// Rainy Wedding/ Ohio

Hannah & Michael// Rainy Wedding/ Ohio

this will forever be one of my absolute favorite weddings.

not only are hannah and michael the sweetest couple, but they stood in the POURING rain for their ceremony because they didn't even care that they were getting soaked as long as they were becoming husband and wife.

when i say 'i'm with you on your wedding day' you better believe i will stand in the rain with you because i love my couples so dang much.

Lily & Dunson// Wedding/ Columbus

Lily & Dunson// Wedding/ Columbus

I don't have many weddings in urban settings, but when I do MAN do I love to show it off. Columbus is looking real cute for Lily & Dunson's wedding.

I can't even begin to describe the energy and emotion of this girl. Ahhh love you so much and I am so happy that I got to capture every single one of your tears and smiles. Dunson, the love you have for Lily and your friends and family is so obvious, and I hope you know how rare that is.

Take a nice scroll and enjoy the day. If you didn't see any Gaga action, you didn't go far enough.

Baby Hudson// Welcome to the World

Baby Hudson// Welcome to the World

Well Baby Hudson, I've been with ya since the start of it all when we announced to dad that you were coming into the world.

I'm beyond thankful that I've been able to capture each moment of the first stages of your life and I can't wait to see what an amazing little man you turn into.

Your parents are pretty amazing, just thought you should know that. Plus your brother Ruger will always have your back.

That's all bud. Go take a snooze.

The Greens// Wedding/ Cincinnati

The Greens// Wedding/ Cincinnati

let me just tell you about these two. besides being two of the most amazing humans ever, they are literally the best of friends and the greatest love of each other's lives.

it doesn't hurt that every time we get together it ends with beer. what can i say, my kind of people.

i know i go on and on about how much i love my job sometimes, but i truly mean what i say. i am beyond thankful that i get to capture true, genuine love stories.

it goes without saying, that i definitely cried a little during this wedding. thanks a lot dustin. but really- you guys rock and i hope you ask me document your lives every single year.

i know that no matter what comes your way, you will always be side by side, hand in hand, making the best of it.

I feel like i could write a novel of thanks to Braden & Noelle for making this workshop happen.

In this industry, for most of us anyway, we sit at home or at a coffee shop all day usually alone trying to win people over, make a good connection with a potential client, or editing hours upon hours until we're semi 'caught up'. Let's be honest, if we put on real clothes or talk to another human on a weekday, things are happening people!!!! Don't get me wrong, we all LOVE what we do and are super fortunate that we are able to make a living out of what we love most; tell peoples love stories.

Brittany & Tyler// Wedding/ Colorado

Brittany & Tyler// Wedding/ Colorado

there is really no easier way to see if someone belongs to another than by the way they look at each other.

it goes without saying, these two are meant to be.

when you've known the bride since before preschool, your role as 'photographer' takes on a whole new meaning. you try not to cry through the ENTIRE day and you take WAY too many photos, because you just can't help yourself. capturing this day will be one of my most favorite days from here on out. you two rock and i love you both!
