Major cuteness

OK, who doesn't love a cat in a box? In the middle of album designing this morning, Howie decided to be extra cute, so I thought I'd share since he's usually not too into being photographed. The dog never sits still long enough for me to get a non-motion shot, so today it's Howie only.

I am so excited to announce my new website! I think it looks awesome, if I do say so myself!! Check it out: and let me know what you think!

The client galleries all work the same so there should be no interruption in service there! Just gigantic images, probably 98% of which are new. Yay!!! I can't wait for everyone to see it!

I made this self-portrait tonight and thought you might like to see it! It was a challenge to make and I really like the way it turned out. See what you think!

I just learned of a new site for brides called Wedding Wire ( OK, it's new to me!! It looks like an awesome resource, chockful of helpful wedding vendor reviews written by real brides. If you've had a great experience with me, I'd love it if you'd write a review on Wedding Wire! Share what you know and help others make great choices!

Thanks a bunch, all my wonderful clients!!!

Mmmmm Cake

Yesterday, I attended the Fabulous Food Show in Cleveland sponsored by the Food Network. Why? Because I like food! There were some yummy things to eat at the show, but I was totally blown away by the display of cakes made by the White Flower Cake Shoppe, located in Beachwood, Ohio. I know that's pretty far away to get a cake for a Columbus wedding, but you should check it out nonetheless. I'm attaching a few shots I took of the amazing cakes!!

It's almost hard to believe that this is a cake and not a stack of boxes!

I absolutely loved this cake. Notice how the design goes right down onto the plate!

More amazing cakes!

Yum, yum!

Gina and Dave

October 27 was the fabulous wedding of Gina and Dave. All the festivities took place at Confluence Park and, despite the weather, we had a great time and were even able to get outdoors for some quick portraits. Everything was just lovely and everyone had a blast dancing at the reception, even me!!

Here are a few of my many favorites from their day:

I loved this shot of Gina, her mom and her sister in the getting-ready room!

You can see mom in the background with the bib - she was mere seconds too late!

They look so happy!!!

Meat heatlamps are a great source for dramatic lighting!!

A touching moment with Dave and his mom.

The dancing was awesome, from Gina and Dave's first dance through the whole rest of the party!

The DJ had a great light kit and I loved playing around to get the best colors!

Congratulations, Gina and Dave!

Megan and Nik

Hocking Hills provided an amazingly gorgeous backdrop to the pictures I made for Megan and Nik. It was a lovely drive down there and we had a great time getting to know each other better. But man o man, check out this light! The best light ever! Afterward, we stopped at the Arch in the Arena District to cap off our fun afternoon, and the gorgeous light continued! Yay!

Here are a few that I love:

Adriann and Reid

It was a fabulous start to the week shooting Adriann and Reid's engagement session at Franklin Park Conservatory. As with lots of places where I'm privileged to photograph multiple times, the personal challenge to me was to make some fantastic images in different nooks and crannies of the park. Success! We toured the south side of the park and hit all kinds of great places I'd never been, and, in the process, we made some phenomenal images! Of course, we had to play with the leaves!!

Here are a few of my many favorites:
