Marlo and Marc

Last week, I met Marlo and Marc in the Short North for their engagement session. Considering the two met at Haiku on a blind date, it was only fitting that we shoot there for some of our session. I've eaten at Haiku a number of times and every time I walk through the lobby, I think about how much I'd love to shoot on those red velvet couches! Last Wednesday, that dream was fulfilled!

We had a great time shooting there and wandering around past all the cool shops. Here are a few of my many favorites from our session:

In our travels, we stopped by Three Dog Bakery so Marlo and Marc could change clothes. Turns out one of Marlo's bridesmaids owns this Three Dog Bakery, so be sure to check it out! It should be opening in the next day or so if it's not already.

This is one of my most favorite shots!!

And how much do I love the wedding dress in the window of Collier West? THIS much!

Can't wait until your wedding next year!!

Kelly and Bo

Last Saturday, Melissa and I photographed the beautiful wedding of Kelly and Bo at The Athenaeum, this time in the Macedonia Room, a first for me, with the reception in the Olympian Ballroom. Joy and Jennifer from Wedding Joy did a fabulous job of coordinating everything, and Cua's provided absolutely gorgeous flowers! We were even lucky to shoot outside, narrowly missing the nasty storms that moved in just in time for the guests to arrive.

Here are a few of my many favorites from Kelly and Bo's day:

This is what Bo was doing while Kelly was getting ready! Thanks to Melissa for this shot!

In the elevator at The Lofts. I love that place!

Kelly and Bo have great energy together and this shot is indicative of how much fun they have with each other.

Thanks to Melissa for capturing the candy table, which was beautiful and a huge hit with the guests . . .

. . . especially this guy . . . (thanks, Melissa!)

. . . and this guy!

Lots of love and fun on the dance floor.

A great moment between mother and daughter.

Congratulations, Kelly and Bo!

Happy Anniversary, Katie and Pete!

Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary for Katie and Pete, who were married at the Columbus Museum of Art. Here are a few images to remember their day.

Happy Anniversary, Katie and Pete!

Erika and Jeremy

Last Wednesday, we couldn't have had any better weather - sunny and cool - for Erika and Jeremy's engagement session. We headed out in the morning and hit lots of great locations and just had a ball. Especially down on the field at OSU Stadium.

Here are a few of the many awesome shots we got that day with Erika and Jeremy:

Megan and Nik

OK, wow. On June 14, Melissa and I made a roadtrip up to Fremont and Port Clinton, Ohio to spend the day photographing Megan and Nik's beautiful wedding. Despite Friday's wicked rain storm at just the time we were to arrive at the rehearsal using our ridiculously errant Google map, we made it safe and sound and just in time. Fremont is a quaint little town not too far from Lake Erie and the ceremony took place in what has to be its most beautiful church, Grace Lutheran. First we started at an Aveda concept salon with the girls, then on to the church. Afterwards, we went to the grounds of the Rutherford B. Hayes home and then on to the beach at Camp Perry on Lake Erie for the reception. The images speak for themselves. Have a look.

A touching moment where Megan reads a card from Nik.

I love the way they're looking at each other on their way to presenting the moms with flowers.

At the park, Melissa grabbed this great motion shot of an elderly runner cutting through our party.

In the gazebo at the Rutherford B. Hayes home.

Fun fun fun beach shot. Check out the saturated colors! Those gorgeous hot pink dresses against the brilliant blue sky is just magical!


I LOVE this shot following the cake bites. Hilarious.

Melissa caught this shot of the flower girl. She was so cute despite looking not-so-happy at the moment.

Back to the beach with just Megan and Nik for some phenomenal images made with that beautiful golden light. I just can't say how much I love these and the fact that Megan and Nik were so into having the images made. Pure joy, all the way around.

A different kind of family group shot. Love it.

Presenting, the bride's leg!

The reverse garter. No need for words here, really.

Another great shot from Melissa, getting down low with the boogie-ing guests.


One more from Melissa. The line was pretty animated!

Congratulations, Megan and Nik!
