One of my favorite weddings of 2017, Christina and Kyle had the most beautiful and sunny fall day. There was such a vibrant energy throughout the day and the color palette was just to die for, with rich burgundy and blush tones.
The reception was like one huge dance party, with some pretty strong Badger and Longhorn pride, some polka dancing, and glow sticks. Seriously, these guys did it right. Congrats again to K&C! It was awesome being a part of your day.

Katie and Justin wanted a wintery forest setting for their engagement session, and the weather and location couldn't have been any more perfect. I have wanted to shoot these trees since I first hear about them, and was so excited when Katie suggested it. To stay warm, they enjoyed some hot coffee in the middle of the session, which helped to combat the 14 degree temps.
Enjoy this winter wonderland enchanted forest session!
Jessica and Jarrod were both in previous weddings that we photographed, so naturally we were thrilled when they decided they wanted to work with us too (yay for referrals!). I was excited when they talked about a winter engagement session, and we all hoped for snow.
They started off by grabbing a drink at Milestone 229, significant because it was where they had dinner the night that Jarrod proposed (on the bridge pictured below). Even though it was like negative one million degrees, we still had some fun. And best of all - FRESH SNOW!
Can't wait the wedding!
It's a good thing we're photographers because it's hard to find words to describe 2017. Personally and professionally it was a year of firsts and tremendous growth. Thanks so much to everyone who chose to work with us in 2017. I don't think we could have made it through such a crazy year without so many awesome new and returning clients, and we have some big changes coming in 2018.
Here are a few of our favorites from the past year, Enjoy!
Anne and Brandon were married in the late fall, on a chilly (windy!) day. If you haven't been to The Ivory Room, it has spectacular views of the city, located in the Miranova 2 building. Although we weren't really able take portraits outdoors due to the rain and wind, the lobby of the building provided a lot of natural light and open space for group photos. And after the ceremony right before the reception started, we snuck outside with the couple, under an umbrella and photographed the city in the background.
Of course the weather didn't matter at all once they said their vows and celebrated on the dance floor. Congratulations Anne & Brandon! Thanks for making us a part of your day.

Marcie & Carl were married on a BEAUTIFUL sunny day in April at the Wells Barn at Franklin Park Conservatory. This was our first wedding at the barn, and it fully exceeded my expectations. Not only do you have the beautiful reclaimed wood, but you also have access to the most beautiful gardens in Columbus. And I just loved these two the moment I met them. Marcie and I hit it off right away over coffee, and Mike and I loved getting to know them over the past year. We're so excited to share some more from their wedding. Scroll allllll the way to the bottom to see it all! Enjoy!

I'm so excited to share this beautiful wedding! This one is extra special for me, because I've known Pat for about a million years. And I just loved Chris the moment I met her. They're just perfect together, and it was so apparent at the wedding, as they were surrounded by friends and family supporting their marriage. As part photographer and part guest (I was only 2 weeks post partum!), I sobbed as I listened to their best man and matron of honor speeches. I'm so thankful to have been a part of their big day (complete with a White Castle late night snack). And one more big thanks to our friend and colleague Hristina from Aperture for collaborating with Mike in my absence.
