Jorgensen Farms Wedding

Megan + Matt

A Spring Wedding at Jorgensen Farms

I met these two almost a year ago when we first met for coffee to talk about their wedding and I was excited for their day to arrive ever since. Megan is one of those people who instantly makes you feel like you've been friends for years when you first meet her. Right away we were laughing and joking, and I was so excited to have her and Matt booked as my first 2018 wedding! Megan has amazing style and her favorite color is yellow, so naturally Jorgensen Farms was the perfect choice for their venue :)  Her and Matt are SUCH a great couple. They have that real, sweet, almost tangible kind of love between them and I felt so honored to be the one to capture it for them on their wedding day. Matt's reaction every time he laid eyes on Megan all day was so incredibly cute. They had a perfect, warm, sunny April day for their wedding, which was such a miracle considering it snowed 2 days before AND 2 days after!! We even scored a pretty sunset, which is always one of my favorite times to sneak couples away for a few more shots. Thank you Megan and Matt for sharing your gorgeous day with me, I loved every minute of it!

Jen + Tim

Jeffrey Mansion & Raymond Memorial || October 7, 2017

Getting to meet so many awesome couples is definitely a huge perk to my job, and I'm especially glad and thankful I met this one! They are such an inspiring couple and their love for each other is so evident. They're one of those couples that you can't help but smile and say "aww" when you see them together :) Tim bravely serves our country and Jen is literally one of the sweetest humans I've ever met. She is so authentically kind, has such a heart for others, and look what a beautiful bride she made!! I've wanted to share this wedding for a while, but these two have especially been on my heart the past couple of weeks because Tim was recently deployed and I can't imagine how it must feel having to be separated just 6 months into marriage. Jen sent me the sweetest message last week telling me how their wedding photos mean more than ever right now while he is away and how extra thankful she is for them. That right there folks is EVERYTHING. It's why I believe in what I do and why I love what I do so much. 

Jen and Tim's wedding day was like a literal fairy tale. The girls started their day by drinking mimosas and getting pampered at Blake Rose Salon in Grandview. The guys hung out and got ready at Middle West Spirits in the Short North. They got a private tour and vodka tasting-not too shabby of a start to the day! Their ceremony was outside at Jeffrey Mansion and it was BEAUTIFUL. Their dog Chloe even made a surprise appearance in the middle of it! After photos all around the mansion, we headed to their reception which was held at Raymond Memorial in Hilliard. From beginning to end, the day was filled with lots of laughs and lots of (happy) tears :)

Enjoy some of my favorites from the day!

Columbus, Ohio || Hayden Falls

Kelly and Andrew-these are two cool humans. The more I learn about them the more I know that to be true. Kelly has lived in multiple awesome places including NYC, Chicago, and ON A CARIBBEAN ISLAND, and she is currently in med school while planning her wedding from out-of-state! Andrew has been deployed for a year and currently lives in DC. Super humans, amirite?! Somehow we were lucky enough to find a Saturday (a gorgeous, sunny one at that) where they were both in Columbus to do their engagement photos and I am SO glad! They were totally up for a little adventure which had me super pumped. We started out at Hayden Falls which is one of the coolest little tucked-away spots in all of Columbus, and ended at a nearby park to take advantage of one epic golden winter sunset. These guys were so fun, and so easygoing, and SO dang cute! I loved getting to spend some time with them and capturing their fun personalities and sweet love for each other. I am BEYOND excited to shoot their wedding at Jorgensen Farms in May!

Bryn + Will

I have known Bryn for years because we used to work together at Outback Steakhouse (I also met my husband there! You know what they say-theres nothing like a good ol' fried onion to create lasting love and friendships). She is super sweet and we initially bonded over our mutual love for cats :) She also loves horses, and I was SUPER excited when she reached out wanting engagement photos taken with her horse Ruby in the snow. I always love shooting new things, especially when they are as fun and beautiful as this was! The experience did not disappoint! I must say, I'm not much of a cold-weather, winter-loving gal (give me ALL the warmth and sunshine) but I have really been digging the snow this winter and all of the fun and beautiful photo shoots that have come with it! 

So without further ado, here's some winter wonderland prettiness for your Monday.

Oh and look for the horse with Ohio on his face ;)

Sydney + Scott

Upper Sandusky, Ohio   September 2, 2017

Once upon a time there was a crazy adorable couple who had a crazy beautiful wedding and I'm the crazy lucky photographer who got to capture it. Sydney and Scott's wedding was basically perfection. I was dying over every amazing detail the entire day. Every time I turned around there was something else more beautiful and perfect than the last thing I just obsessed over! SO MUCH GOLD AND SO MANY FLOWERS and if you know me, you know that's pretty much all it takes to make me happy. Sydney had so many personal and sentimental touches sprinkled in (like the sleeve from her mom's wedding dress wrapped around her bouquet, and the roses on the invitations and in the flowers to represent her middle name). It was the perfect balance of vintage and fresh. 

But what's a beautiful wedding without an equally beautiful couple? Thankfully I didn't have to find out because Sydney and Scott are two of the most beautiful people, inside and out. They're obviously a dang good-looking couple, but they are truly two of the sweetest people in the world. I will never forget them taking the time out of their reception to chat with Dave and I for a good 20 minutes, just like we were old friends. Being around them and their equally incredibly kind (and fun!)  family members and friends all day left Dave and I both with such full hearts and feeling so grateful for our job.

So yeah. I freaking loved everything about this wedding and am SO EXCITED to finally share it!!! Enjoy all the beautifulness!!!

 a sweet and intimate ceremony by the water

I went to high school with a sweet girl named Ashley, who luckily I have stayed in contact with! I have had the pleasure of photographing her ever-growing family over the years and I can't wait to meet baby #3 soon! After high school, she moved to England for a few years and while she lived there met and became friends with Emma. (She also met her husband there!) Eventually Emma ended up meeting her brother, Aaron, and the rest is history!

They got engaged and Emma made the big move to the U.S. They decided to have a small and intimate ceremony in a friend's (beautiful!) backyard in my hometown of Mansfield! It was a gorgeous fall afternoon and they exchanged their vows in front of their closest friends and family. It was so special. I am so happy I was able to capture it for them. I also snuck in a few maternity photos of Ashley since she is expecting and looked so darn cute! :)

Enjoy the many favorites from the day!

Short North Engagement

I first met with Kristine over the summer and after I heard her describe her and Brandon's relationship I was so excited to see them together. They are the perfect combination of playful and romantic! It's super sweet to watch and I loved every minute of capturing it during their engagement shoot!

The day of their shoot we met up at Short North Tavern and grabbed a couple drinks before heading out and about. Kristine told me that they were both a bit nervous but I knew they were going to ROCK their photos. When couples are so obviously into each other the way these two are it definitely shows. I was BEYOND right-they were such naturals! I barely had to guide them at all-they just started being insanely adorable and I just took pictures of it!

We started around the heart of Short North and ended just before sunset on a nearby rooftop  with an awesome view of the Columbus skyline. It was ah-mazing. (Just wait until you see her dress she wore for this!!!) I love this couple and am already so pumped for their wedding next August!!

Karlie & Evan

After having coffee with Karlie and Evan and getting to know a little about them I was beyond excited when they chose me as their wedding photographer. These two recently moved to Ohio from California and are loving their life here. When Karlie was describing her visions for her wedding and what she likes, it could have been me talking! They are getting married next summer at the Grand Barn at the Mohicans and I cannot wait. That is definitely one of my favorite wedding venues and having the privilege of photographing this sweet couple there is going to be a amazing!

These two were ready to rock and roll for their engagement photos. They showed up willing and ready to climb rocks, walk through streams, and everything in between! They have two pups that they also brought along and oh my GOSH. They wore bow ties and suspenders with little doggie jean shorts and I don't think I've ever seen anything so dang cute in my life. This was a fun session from beginning to end to say the least!

                A Boho Summer Wedding

I had been looking forward to Ashley and Clay’s wedding for a year! I met them through Ashley’s sister, Alicia, who I used to work with. As soon as Ashley started sharing her visions for their wedding with me I knew I was going LOVE IT. We have very similar taste and style and the more she said “lots of greenery” and “eucalyptus” the more excited I got!  Not to mention how incredibly nice and chill these two are. Their true closeness and fun-loving attitudes made for some awesome photos-both at their engagement session last fall (which is one of my absolute favorites I’ve ever shot-check it out here ) and at their wedding. I love how natural and effortlessly-in-love they look together in front of the camera. Capturing a love like theirs is what photographer’s dreams are made of. 

Their wedding was held at Weathering Woods in their hometown of Zanesville, about an hour or so outside of Columbus. It was a gorgeous, sunny August day and everything looked beautiful when we arrived. There were so many sweet, emotional moments and happy tears that day. One of my favorite moments was when Ashley and Clay shared a “first touch” right before their ceremony. They didn’t see each other but held hands behind a door and Ashley read a letter that Clay wrote her. It was so so sweet. 

Their ceremony was beautiful and their reception was so fun. The bridal party was awesome and we had tons of fun taking photos! There was a killer sunset that night so we made sure to take advantage of that as well. Sunset photos pretty much complete me. 

Ashley and Clay, I absolutely loved being a part of your wedding day! I knew we were going to have an awesome time working together from the beginning and I was beyond right! Thank you for your trust and excitement and I wish your marriage all the happiness in the world!
