Matt & Lea {Yellow Springs, Ohio // Travel – Themed Engagement Session}

MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1303

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! :)

LOVE these vintage suitcases they bought for the shoot! Aren’t they perfect?! MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1277 MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1278 MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1279 MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1280 MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1281 MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1282 MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1283 MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1284 MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1285 MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1286

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!! MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1287 MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1288 MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1289 MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1290 MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1291 MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1292 MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1293 MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1294 MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1295 MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1296 MattandLeaTravelEngagement_1297

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 :) 2014PortraitFavorites_1077 2014PortraitFavorites_1078 2014PortraitFavorites_1079 2014PortraitFavorites_1080 2014PortraitFavorites_1081 2014PortraitFavorites_1082 2014PortraitFavorites_1083 2014PortraitFavorites_1084 2014PortraitFavorites_1085 2014PortraitFavorites_1086 2014PortraitFavorites_1087 2014PortraitFavorites_1088 2014PortraitFavorites_1089 2014PortraitFavorites_1090 2014PortraitFavorites_1091 2014PortraitFavorites_1092 2014PortraitFavorites_1093 2014PortraitFavorites_1094 2014PortraitFavorites_1095 2014PortraitFavorites_1096 2014PortraitFavorites_1097 2014PortraitFavorites_1098 2014PortraitFavorites_1099 2014PortraitFavorites_1100 2014PortraitFavorites_1101 2014PortraitFavorites_1102 2014PortraitFavorites_1103 2014PortraitFavorites_1104 2014PortraitFavorites_1105 2014PortraitFavorites_1106 2014PortraitFavorites_1107 2014PortraitFavorites_1108 2014PortraitFavorites_1109 2014PortraitFavorites_1110 2014PortraitFavorites_1111 2014PortraitFavorites_1112 2014PortraitFavorites_1113 2014PortraitFavorites_11142014PortraitFavorites_1136 2014PortraitFavorites_1115 2014PortraitFavorites_1116 2014PortraitFavorites_1117 2014PortraitFavorites_1118 2014PortraitFavorites_1119 2014PortraitFavorites_1120 2014PortraitFavorites_1121 2014PortraitFavorites_1122 2014PortraitFavorites_1123 2014PortraitFavorites_1124 2014PortraitFavorites_1125 2014PortraitFavorites_1126 2014PortraitFavorites_1127 2014PortraitFavorites_1128 2014PortraitFavorites_1129 2014PortraitFavorites_1130 2014PortraitFavorites_1131 2014PortraitFavorites_1132 2014PortraitFavorites_1133 2014PortraitFavorites_1134 2014PortraitFavorites_1135 2014PortraitFavorites_1137 2014PortraitFavorites_1138 2014PortraitFavorites_1139

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! 2014CouplesFavorites_0943 2014CouplesFavorites_0944 2014CouplesFavorites_0945 2014CouplesFavorites_0946 2014CouplesFavorites_0947 2014CouplesFavorites_0948 2014CouplesFavorites_0949 2014CouplesFavorites_0950 2014CouplesFavorites_0951 2014CouplesFavorites_0952 2014CouplesFavorites_0953 2014CouplesFavorites_0954 2014CouplesFavorites_0955 2014CouplesFavorites_0956 2014CouplesFavorites_0957 2014CouplesFavorites_0958 2014CouplesFavorites_0959 2014CouplesFavorites_0960 2014CouplesFavorites_0961 2014CouplesFavorites_0962 2014CouplesFavorites_0963 2014CouplesFavorites_0964 2014CouplesFavorites_0965 2014CouplesFavorites_0966 2014CouplesFavorites_0967 2014CouplesFavorites_0968 2014CouplesFavorites_0969 2014CouplesFavorites_0970 2014CouplesFavorites_0971 2014CouplesFavorites_0972 2014CouplesFavorites_0973 2014CouplesFavorites_0974 2014CouplesFavorites_0975 2014CouplesFavorites_0976 2014CouplesFavorites_0977 2014CouplesFavorites_0978 2014CouplesFavorites_0979 2014CouplesFavorites_0980 2014CouplesFavorites_0981 2014CouplesFavorites_0982 2014CouplesFavorites_0983 2014CouplesFavorites_0984 2014CouplesFavorites_0985 2014CouplesFavorites_0986 2014CouplesFavorites_0987 2014CouplesFavorites_0988 2014CouplesFavorites_0989 2014CouplesFavorites_0990 2014CouplesFavorites_0991 2014CouplesFavorites_0992 2014CouplesFavorites_0993 2014CouplesFavorites_0994 2014CouplesFavorites_0995 2014CouplesFavorites_0996 2014CouplesFavorites_0997 2014CouplesFavorites_0998 2014CouplesFavorites_0999 2014CouplesFavorites_1000 2014CouplesFavorites_1001 2014CouplesFavorites_1002 2014CouplesFavorites_1003 2014CouplesFavorites_1004 2014CouplesFavorites_1005 2014CouplesFavorites_1006 2014CouplesFavorites_1007 2014CouplesFavorites_1008 2014CouplesFavorites_1009 2014CouplesFavorites_1010 2014CouplesFavorites_1011 2014CouplesFavorites_1012 2014CouplesFavorites_1013 2014CouplesFavorites_1014 2014CouplesFavorites_10152014CouplesFavorites_1017 2014CouplesFavorites_10162014CouplesFavorites_1018 2014CouplesFavorites_1019 2014CouplesFavorites_1020 2014CouplesFavorites_1021 2014CouplesFavorites_1022 2014CouplesFavorites_1023 2014CouplesFavorites_1024 2014CouplesFavorites_1025 2014CouplesFavorites_1026
