Wedding Wednesday. The best day of the week. And today's wedding is so special for me to share because it is my sweet friend's! When Sheila asked me to be her and Kevin's wedding photographer, I seriously had tears. It was such an honor for me to be there on there big day.
Sheila and Kevin were glowing with JOY on this hot hot hot Sunday in mid-July. They married at So Serene in Wapakoneta. This venue is so beautiful. You feel like you're in a different state once you're at the venue, but the drive in and drive out are all cornfields! It's almost comical, but it was a dream to shoot at this venue!Read More
Happy Wedding Wednesday all! AND Happy Valentine's Day!! THIS wedding! Oh, I am so excited to share this wedding with you. This day made my heart so happy. When I arrived in Washington Court House, I knew this wedding would be a favorite. I sure do love my county brides!
Megan and Aaron are so sweet, so kind - being in their presence just makes you so happy. Megan has the most contagious laugh! She was classically stunning. When Aaron turned around to see Megan during their first look, this was one of my favorite moments of the day!Read More
Happy NEW YEAR! It is 2018 you guys. That is absolutely insane. This year, it is my resolution to make it to church more and spend more time with the people I love! Building my business the past few years kept me from taking time for myself and my family, but I'm feeling good about balancing everything this year!
Today I am sharing Anthony and Ashley's Greek Orthodox wedding ceremony. I shot this beautiful ceremony last Spring. I wanted to share this ceremony with you because if you are unfamiliar with the Orthodox faith and you attend a wedding, you may have no idea what is going on. Why are there crowns? Why do they drink from a cup? I've taken the below from our church website.Read More
Holy mackerel, y’all! I haven’t blogged a thing since the spring! This winter calls for some serious catching up, what do you say? I am so excited to share with you the shoots and weddings I have done this year! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and I hope you’re gearing up for a fun and relaxing holiday season.
I have been very busy! This year was phenomenal and I’m so grateful for all the work I’ve been given. I’m ready to show it off! For now, I want to share with you a styled shoot I did with Dalay Ket Event Design last spring- yes, 2016. Borrowed and Blue published this shoot this year! My goal was to have one of my shoots published this year. I have since had two other shoots published!Read More
Brandi + Michael
Arena District | Huntington Park
I cannot believe I just shot Michael’s engagement photos! What is this life? I have known Michael for quite a while. I first met his older sisters back in high school and we became fast friends. I totally credit being the youngest and only boy in a family full of sisters to how amazing of a man he has grown into. Haha (; But seriously, I am so impressed by who Michael has become. He’s always been hilarious, caring, and just so much fun to be around, but watching him with Brandi, I saw a man I was so proud to know.
I kept seeing Michael post photos with this pretty little girl on Facebook, and I could just tell. I think everyone could tell. His smiles were of complete happiness and you could see the joy in his eyes. This wasn’t just another girlfriend.
I have to give credit one more time to the sisters! Michael’s sister Marilee was working with Brandi at the time and told Michael, “There’s someone I want you to meet.”
Michael proposed one day outside the steps of Huntington Park with a beautiful beautiful beautiful diamond ring. And as they say… the rest is history.
Brandi is incredible, just the girl I would want for my own little brother (if I had one!) to marry. I had heard so much about her already, and was so excited to meet her last year when Michael reached out to me to talk about photos after their engagement. Brandi is beautiful, kind, intelligent and she just fits in so perfectly with this wonderful family. I got a little emotional even when I first started shooting their photos!
For their engagement photos, Brandi and Michael chose the arena district, right back to where they got engaged. I loved how they incorporated Michael’s uniform and Brandi looked drop dead gorgeous in her dress! Seriously, check this dress out! Obsessed. She rocked it.
And you might be wondering, what the hey with the cake pops?? Oh you know, Brandi is just AN AMAZING BAKER. I’m always seeing her work on social media and everything she does is so beautiful. I was dying to try her famous cake pops! SO… She even made some extra cake pops for me to take home after their session. I LOVE HER. I popped those babies open as soon as our session ended and was in cake pop heaven. You can check out more of her cake popos and other yummy work here.
I am so excited for their late summer wedding! Seriously, this wedding is going to be FUN! I am so happy for the two of you, Michael and Brandi. Thank you for the opportunity to capture your love story!
