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!

Paige + Josh

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!

Ashley + Clay

                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!
