Sarah & Joseph {Pattison Lodge Wedding}

It was a day full of all the things that characterize Joseph and Sarah: smiles, beauty, happy tears, twirling, hugging, and pouring out love. The forecasted rain held off for the outdoor ceremony and even allowed us just enough time for outdoor portraits before the downpour began. We couldn’t have asked for better timing or a sweeter spirit on this day.

Mr. & Mrs. Hostetler, THANK YOU for allowing me to be a part of your wedding. I wish you many years of the same joy you felt on this day. <3

Dean & Carinne {Carriage Hill Metropark Engagement Session | Dayton, OH Engagement Photography}

What a couple of absolute sweethearts Dean and Carinne are. She has the sweetest, kindest spirit, and he is so gentle and caring toward her.

Carriage Hill Metropark was the perfect location for this shoot. We had the best weather, and the sunset was everything we dreamed it would be. Carinne and Dean were so comfortable in front of the camera that it made my job a breeze, and I adore how these photos turned out.

These lovebirds are getting married later this year, and I cannot wait to celebrate the beginning of their forever together! <3 Thanks for letting me be the one to capture this amazing time in your lives, you two!

Jordan & Zach {blanchester, ohio wedding}

A rowdy bridal party, a sunny & hot summer day, and a couple whose relationship is like a warm blanket in the middle of winter… Jordan & Zach’s day was filled with smiles, laughter, and joy.

As the ceremony time neared, clouds filled the sky and brought with them cooler air and diffused light. We could see that a storm was making its way toward us, but it must’ve known that something important was happening at the farm because it waited until the “I dos” had been said and the guests had made it to shelter before the rain started. From that point on it was all fun: a BBQ dinner, dancing, speeches, and a whole lotta happiness. 

Mr. & Mrs. Demaree, it was an honor to be there on your wedding day! I wish you many years of happiness together!


James & Alex {engagement session}

Where do I start with these two? James is undeniably happy to have Alex by his side. He spent the whole session smiling and laughing with her, obviously so enthralled with her presence. Alex is an awesome example of a confident, passionate woman, and these two compliment one another so well. They're silly, comfortable, and so in love. 

Next summer, these two will promise forever to one another, and I can't wait to be a part of their day <3
