Happy Anniversary, Karri and Mark!

Yesterday marked the one-year annivesary for Karri and Mark, who were married at The Athletic Club of Columbus. Karri found me at the Columbus Bride Show way back in 2005 and we developed a great relationship over the two years prior to their wedding. They're a super great couple and Melissa and I had a wonderful time photographing their wedding.

Here are a few of my favorites from their wedding:

Karri's grandparents, waiting for the ceremony to start. Aren't they adorable?

I love this shot of Karri and Mark - it's so romantic!

And cake. Have to have a cake shot!

Happy Anniversary, Karri and Mark!

Last November, Melissa, Karen and I, and Jacki and Lizzie, daughters of my friend Nancy, spent an afternoon at Will Shively's studio in the short north shooting the lovely Leslie. My friend, Rose - a fabulous multimedia stylist - helped with make-up and outfits - and us girls just had a fabulous time. We had snacks and great music and the run of Will's amazing studio. Truly, a photographer's dream!

And it's been busy since then so I'm just getting to processing some images from our fun shoot. I have to say though that part of the reason I'm posting these now is that Melissa and I are going to Leslie's neck of the woods (Dayton area) to shoot her again tomorrow in the snow and cold, and I wanted to be able to take some images to her. I'm hoping we can find some interesting new places to shoot in Dayton, including places like laundromats or restaurants or bars or just whatever. Like I've said on numerous occasions - I LOVE to shoot in different places!

So, on with the show:

The Cake Studio

I don't know how many of you checked out the Bride Show at Vet's Memorial yesterday, but Melissa and I made the trip to say hi to our wedding vendor friends and see what's new and happenin' with everyone.

The first stop inside the doors of course is Katie Koivisto's GORGEOUS cakes. The Cake Studio is my very favorite local bakery. Katie makes the most amazing cakes with beautiful, unique designs using richly saturated colors - which I just love! Not only that, but these cakes taste AWESOME!

Katie was displaying some new baked favors at the show yesterday and you should definitely check them out. They come in cute little boxes with cute little ribbons and they look fabulous on the placesettings. I shot a few pictures for Katie and thought I'd share them here. They're sure to be a huge hit!
