Jess + Aaron

Jorgensen Farms Oak Grove Wedding

Jess & Aaron’s wedding was the first one I had the privilege of documenting in 2019. What a way to kick off the year! Their wedding day took place at the always beautiful Jorgensen Farms Oak Grove here in Columbus. Their ceremony was held in a heated glass greenhouse which was so cool because even though it was a FRIGID cold February day, it still gave the vibe of being outside without having to freeze to death! You would honestly never be able to tell how cold it was that day by looking at the pictures. Partly because of the beautiful venue, and partly because Jess, Aaron, and their badass bridal party were TROOPERS and didn’t let the lack of degrees ruin a single moment of photo time! You’re the real MVPs!!!

Jess & Aaron shared a sweet first look in the greenhouse before the ceremony. You could see the smiles on their faces from 100 miles away once they saw each other! First look moments always get me. When I was taking some portraits of Jess telling her how dang GORGEOUS she looked, Aaron commented “Yeah, I knew I was done for the first time I saw her.” Okaaay stawwwp it.

Even after their first look and photo session together, Aaron still couldn’t help but become overwhelmed with emotion when he saw Jess walk down the aisle to him later that day. Whether you see each other prior to your ceremony or not, it doesn't change the emotion of THAT moment or take away from the specialness of it. It could literally be the last thing you do after a long day together, and it would still be overwhelming and momumentous because of it’s significance. It’s a life-changing walk toward each other, and trust me, that is ALWAYS felt!

Their ceremony had so many cute moments, but one of my faves was when the little flower girl decided she’d like a better view, so she plopped herself down right in the center aisle and observed from there. So funny and cute!!

Their ceremony ended just in time for golden hour so we were able to take some more photos during the beautiful sunset. Always one of my favorite times of the whole day! The reception shortly followed and it was filled with so many sweet moments. The floor-to-celing windows and gorgeous chandeliers made for such a stunning view. Jess and Aaron’s families and friends were so kind and so much fun which really made the whole day and night so enjoyable! Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Rose, for sharing your beautiful day with me!

Columbus, Ohio

Remember when I thought I’d have aaaaall the time during my “off season” to do aaaaall the things, like blog every week? Lol. Hi beginning of March and first blog. Sigh, better late than never, right?!

So I thought there was no better wedding to share first than Paige & Josh’s intimate celebration that took place in October. I LOVE this couple’s story. I’ve found myself telling it to random people who don’t even know them because it’s so dang cute. Paige and Josh didn’t have to date long time before they knew they were the ones for each other. When they found out that Josh was going to be deployed for a year, they knew they wanted to get married before he left. They planned this small (but incredibly beautiful!) wedding ceremony for the week before he left, and they are planning on having a full reception with all of their friends and family when he returns.

Their engagement story is one of my FAVES! Paige has always loved Tiffany & Co. and has always dreamed of wearing a wedding ring from there. One afternoon, Josh took Paige to Easton to walk around…or so she thought! She of course wanted to walk by the Tiffany store that’s there, so he lead her in that direction. The Tiffany building has a small window in the front where they always have some sort of jewelry display set up. As they were “casually” walking by and talking, Paige glanced into the small window and to her complete surprise noticed that there was a photograph of her and Josh displayed, along with a little blue box and a shiny ring! Josh proposed, and Paige’s dream of getting to rock her own Tiffany & Co. ring (and getting to marry the love of her life, nbd) came true! Nice freaking job, Josh, amirite?!

Their wedding day started with a short but oh-so-sweet ceremony at a cute little venue called Zinnia here in Columbus. They exchanged personal vows in front of their closest friends and family and officially became Mr & Mrs! Afterwards, we headed down to Griggs Reservoir Park for photos. I had such a blast with them and their hilarious bridal party. All in all it was an awesome day to celebrate such a cool couple!

Paige and Josh, I absolutely loved being a part of your sweet day! Only a few more months until you are reunited in person and can finally enjoy newlywed bliss together!!!

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!!
