Oh these two. What a story they have!! I’m going to save the fun details to share for their wedding blog post, but to make a long story short, they met in France (where Lea is from), while Matt was touring with his band, Hawthorne Heights, dated long distance, got engaged and will be getting married in May!! I couldn’t be more honored or excited to share in their day. They wanted their engagement shoot to reflect their long-distance relationship, so we tied in a travel theme, as well as some fun urban shots in Yellow Springs. Hope you enjoy this preview! :)
We had a few ideas about how to incorporate travel into their shoot, but the one we ended up choosing was paper airplanes. They loved the idea of doing the second half of the shoot in the woods, and the paper airplanes were a great portable prop! The two of them stayed up late the night before the shoot and made every single airplane!! (Again I will say, I have the BEST couples in the world! These guys were such good sports!) And on the day of the shoot, we hung them from a bunch of trees in the middle of Glen Helen. So much fun!!
Happy Friday! Another long overdue post, but I wanted to share some of my favorite images from my portrait sessions this past year. I’ve really come to love photographing seniors – especially those that are creative! I got to explore abandoned buildings, shoot a vintage pick-up truck, and chase the light with some amazing people, and I can’t wait to share some of those memories with you today! Thank you to each person that asked me to do a portrait session this year. Thank you for trusting me, allowing me to be creative, and for being such killer models!! Couldn’t have asked for more :)
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I’m sharing my most favorite images from my couples sessions in 2014!! Many of these specific shots were chosen not necessarily for their quality or crispness or perfect lighting, but rather I picked images that evoke emotion and give you a glimpse into the personalities of the couples. The goal of my photography is to be relationship-driven: from the first initial meeting with my clients to capturing their joy on their wedding day, I want it to be authentic and genuine and truly a time when they can relax and enjoy photographs being taken. I feel like I was able to improve with that this year, and I love seeing so much laughter and excitement as I scroll through this post. Hopefully you will see it too :) Happy Valentines Day, friends!
