Behind the Scenes 2017

I can't believe 2017 has actually come to an end. Having 28 weddings my first year of business was just absolutely incredible. I will always remember the nerves I had before each bride walked down the aisle, to the late nights editing with chocolate Chex Mix and New Girl playing in the background. My favorite part of this year was definately all the friends I gained from this side hustle of mine. I am so happy to have chosen this path and can't wait to see what is in store for 2018!

Here are some behind the scene photos of me doing my thing. I'm hoping to get even more selfies with my couples this year!

Perfecting hair, because it is a must.

I honestly have no words other than I was just working those angles!

I'm also a wedding planner, family coordinator, and tiny button expert.

Smiling because I love my job! :)

My goal next year is to get a photo with ALL of my couples!

I had to get a photo with THE CUTEST RING BEARER!

And of course all the selfies. (In the last photo I was helping out a groomsman with a bet. We took a selfie on my camera.) For some reason I couldn't find any selfies with my girl, Roxy. She's the pretty blonde that's always on my story! We love our wedding day selfies! :) 

2017 you were AMAZING! I can't wait for 2018!

Fall Wedding at Camp Mary Orton

I was so excited to finally head over to Camp Mary Orton for a wedding! We had a decent amount of rainfall the night before and we were all a little worried it would be muddy for all of the adventurous pictures we had planned. We were all up for the challenge anyway and brought our change of shoes to prepare. It did not turn out as muddy as we thought, so we spent a decent amount of time hiking through the woods taking some beautiful portraits. 

Regina and Anthony had their two adorable children in their wedding which made it even more special. Regina did her daughter's makeup while they were getting ready, and don't even get me started with their son's bow tie! They were too adorable, I couldn't even take it! This was one of my first weddings that really felt fall themed and I was loving every second of it. Fall is my favorite season so when I see these stunning bouquet arrangements and maroon color schemes I am in heaven! This wedding was absolutely gorgeous and I can't wait to share some more of my favorites!

Classic Wedding at Amelita Mirolo Barn

It was a chilly and rainy morning and I knew many of Kelsey and Brennan's wedding plans would have to be adjusted throughout the day. Thankfully, we had reservations to take some indoor wedding photos at the Ohio State House. This worked out perfectly because we were still able to have their first look outside under the covered columns. It sure didn't look like a rainy day from those photos!

Even though we had plans to walk over to the Scioto Mile, we were able to take some fun bridal party and family photos inside the state house. This was my first time inside and it literally took my breath away! Staying all in one location also gave us plenty of time to take the photos we wanted and more! We were relaxed and had plenty of time to head over to the venue and get ready for the ceremony. The inside of Amelita Mirolo Barn was beautiful and still allowed plenty of light to come in! We made the best of this rainy day and I was so glad to spend it with these two!

Oak Grove Greenhouse Wedding | Columbus Wedding

When Lindsay first reached out to me, I couldn't believe that she was planning on putting together this wedding in just two months! We chatted over some coffee as she went over all of her plans, and I knew right there that she would find a way to get it done. I also felt that we would be a great fit working together. We have similar styles and I was getting just as excited as she was! When she said she wanted to book me, I was more than thrilled and couldn't wait to capture this special day. 

The wedding was at my favorite Columbus venue, Oak Grove. I attended a styled shoot at this venue before, but this was my first real wedding here. Seeing all of Lindsay's plan come together was absolutely incredible and it honestly was a photographer's dream. From the dusty blue bridesmaids dresses, to the simple florals, and all of the other elegant details, you could tell there was a lot of time spent to make this day just what Lindsay imagined. The greenhouse let in the perfect amount of light during the ceremony and we honestly could not have had a more beautiful day for a wedding! It was a pleasure working with this lovely couple and I am so excited to deliver their photos soon! Here are some of my favorites from their special day!
