Columbus, OH | Sunset engagement | Ashley + Clay

Columbus, Ohio wedding photographer. Sunset engagement session at the Hoover Dam

You know when you have a kid and you're just so proud of them and you love them so much because you created them and they're just so dang cute? Well, I don't have kids yet, but I have a camera, and I create photos, and guys....I love them so much! I LOVE what I do SO much. It's literally like Christmas to me after every single shoot. I leave so giddy and I can't wait to run home and load the pictures on my computer. I seriously put so much love into every single photo and I spend most of my time editing with the biggest smile on my face. Knowing that I am creating memories for my clients that they will have forever fills my heart with so much joy. When clients tell me how much they love the photos that I have given them my heart almost explodes. Oh man, that's what it's all about!

When I met with Ashley and Clay and they were telling me their visions for their wedding and describing their style, I knew right away it was almost my style exactly. That makes my job even MORE incredible! I was so happy when they officially chose me as their wedding photographer! They are getting married next summer and I cannot wait. I know it's going to be amazing! Because our styles are so similar, I figured why not do their engagement shoot where I recently got married?! It's the most beautiful, magical spot in all of Columbus (in my opinion, but I am a bit biased ;) and I knew they would love it. It was a gorgeous fall evening and the pictures turned out amazing! Proud parent ;)

Oh this couple is SO sweet. They are so in love and you can almost feel it in their photos! Couples like this make my job so easy. I just sit back and watch all the love happen. They're close, happy, and glowing. If they look like this now, can you imagine how they're going to look on their wedding day?! Can't. Wait. :)

The King Family

 

Fall family shoot at Mt. Jeez

Anytime I get a call from Ashley wanting updated photos I get so excited! Her and her husband are the absolute sweetest people and their family is so fun and adorable!! I went to high school with her and she was one of my very first clients. I photographed her family a few Christmas' ago when I was just getting started. Back then they were just a family of three with one on the way. Now they are a family of four and I have loved getting together with them each year and seeing how they've grown and see Chloe and Coulson's little personalities develop! Chloe is her mom's mini-me and it's seriously so cute. (Can we talk hair goals, btw?!...BOTH of them! Gah!!!) Coulson is the happiest little guy around and his giggles just melted my heart <3

This year we met at Mt. Jeez at Malabar Farm in Mansfield. It's just about an hour away from Columbus and it's where I grew up! Mt. Jeez is the one of the highest peaks in Ohio and you can see out for miles! It's beautiful. I've always wanted to shoot there and it did not disappoint! It was so fun to watch the kids run around and play. They were having a blast, but I was totally having just as much fun :)

Ashley, you are awesome. You've always been so sweet and you have a beautiful family, inside and out. I have absolutely loved photographing you guys over the past few years!!! Enjoy! :)
