The first time I met this couple I just knew we would have a fun wedding day together. And every detail of the day was incredible to see come to life from all of the planning. From her broach bouquet from Etsy to the Gatsby themed reception – this is one wedding day I will never forget. The Grand looked incredible and ready for a party. It’s hard to pick one favorite moment but it would have to be getting to photograph the couple alone before the ceremony. Outside their cute little church in Clifton the lighting and mood was perfect. And at the recepiton seeing everyone party made me smile. Jenna and Paul – congrats on throwing one heck of a party and for inviting us to document the celebration! A sepcial thank you to their wedding professionals who made this day one for the books!

When people ask me why I love fall I think of sessions like this one. The colors of the leaves, the crisp air and the snuggling of two people in love – that is why I adore this time of year. Everywhere you turn there is a unique background for photos. Jenny and Michael it was so much fun to photograph you two together. Exploring Mariemont and Pyramid Hill sculpture garden together was great. I can’t wait for your wedding next year!

Congratulations to Lauren and Shaun on their one year anniversary! Their wedding a year ago today was such a beautiful celebration. Their ceremony was at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church and their fun reception was at the Cincinnati Nature Center‘s, Krippendorf Lodge. My favorite part of the day had to be running around the nature center with the couple. Even their maid of honor and best man helped with the dress and the umbrella. And the first dance with the market lighting – another great moment! We wish this couple all the very best in life!
