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!

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!!!
