Columbus Ohio Winter + Bubble Tea Engagement: Alita + Joel

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!

Mid-October is one of my favorite wedding weekends of the whole year!

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!
