Celebrating Life is your Passion
Capturing the Beauty of it
is mine

It was the last day of June in Yellow Springs, Ohio. The weather was warm, sunny, and a bit unpredictable as midwestern summers tend to be. Yet every storm cloud seemed to roll over without a single raindrop. And inside Mill’s Park Hotel, the staff was preparing for a wedding celebration. The banquet room was […]

I met Kathy and Chris last Spring when they reached out for an engagement session. They were an adorable couple, laughing and giggling at the endearing spectacle of portraits. I could tell right away that they made a great team. And I was so excited when they reached out to have me capture their wedding […]

A Rustic Wedding Christine stood in front of a large floor to ceiling gold framed mirror in a gorgeous bridal suite. Her hair was pinned in loose curls and her make up was flawless. She had just put on her wedding gown with the help of her sister and Mother and as they were putting […]

Behind the rows of white chairs, a painter stood quietly, etching out tracings of the Bride and Groom as they stood hand in hand. It was a gorgeous late August afternoon with big rolling clouds and warm bright sunshine. Carly and Jon’s dog Kali was weaving in and out of the couple and their bridal […]

Art Museums have always felt like they represented something sacred – an intimate connection between the viewer and the artist.

Brooke arrived to the park with her squad surrounding her while on a rounded teal bridge, back turned, waited her groom. Matt was beaming, […]

I pulled up to a beautiful brick home in the Historic Oregon District that was nestled under a canopy of bright orange and yellow maple leaves. Inside was bustling, as are most locations where the bride is getting ready. The two Mothers were working harmoniously in the kitchen while bridesmaids were upstairs putting finishing touches […]

Friday the 13th of September was a warm, beautiful, and sunny day. Wedding guests were greeted by Lucy (flower crown and all) and trickled into the trail that led to a gorgeous meadow with a small wooden gazebo surrounded by chairs and a table full of sunglasses with a note that read “sit back and […]

In the quaint little town of Granville, Ohio stands a stately white house nestled in between an ethereal pine forest and a vast field filled with tall grass and sturdy horses. The expansive back yard was bustling last Saturday as tables were being arranged and the tent gained a taco bar, a cocktail bar, and […]

Nestled in the quaint community of Yellow Springs is a gorgeous hotel modeled after a 19th century home of a local settler, William Mills. The grand white walls against the colorful autumn leaves seemed illuminated in the misty October afternoon. The wedding ceremony was to be moved inside after concern of the unpredictable fall forecast […]
