Last month I traveled down to Fort Lauderdale to photograph an engagement session for one of my 2019 wedding couples, and while I was there I photographed a family session for my friends who live there now! Stacey and I have been friends for over 20 years, and I’ve photographed her family so much since…

Last month I had the opportunity to travel down to southern Florida for Kayla and Sara’s engagement! I’m photographing their wedding later this summer in Hermitage PA (just outside Youngstown), but they currently live in Delray Beach, Florida where Kayla goes to graduate school.

My last wedding of 2018, what a perfect way to end the year! This wedding also happened to be my 200th career wedding!

Tala + Raffi tied the knot outside the country, but returned to Tala’s hometown for a local celebration with their Ohio family and friends.

Columbus Ohio Winter + Bubble Tea Engagement: Alita + Joel

February 1, 2019

This engagement session was pretty much a dream for me all-around! Snowy winter portraits plus bubble tea – these are essentially two of my favorite things!

I couldn’t have asked for a more fantastic couple for this Columbus Zoo wedding – they completely embraced the day exactly as it came!

In the month of December, I had the opportunity to reconnect with 3 of my past wedding clients, as they all welcomed their first babies and invited me to capture their first portraits!

Grange Audubon Center Jewish Wedding: Jaclyn + Daniel

January 16, 2019

Mid-October is one of my favorite wedding weekends of the whole year! Jaclyn and Daniel made it perfect with their simple and laid-back day at the Grange Insurance Audubon Center in downtown Columbus. The temps were chilly, and the precipitation outlook was all over the place, but I don’t think they would have changed a thing.…

Columbus Ohio Newborn Photographer: Baby Elliott

January 14, 2019

When I got an email from Jenna and Ashley last summer letting me know they were expecting, I was so thrilled for them! Their July 2017 wedding is still one of my all-time favorites! I loved meeting 10-day-old baby Elliott in December at their home in Blacklick, and photographing her first portraits. Their cat joined…
