When Arielle and Erik first saw my work, it was because I had just photographed friends of theirs several months before when they got engaged. Arielle reached out to me and booked a consultation with me. Sitting an Panera, I saw this extremely happy girl walk in and I knew it was Arielle; she told me Erik was on his way, so I just asked her a little bit about her, just to kill some time.

I've known Andrea for 6 years now. We met when we were both attending Ohio State - Mansfield back in 2009. Over some conversation, we discovered both of us were aspiring photographers and we've been in touch ever since. A few months ago, she reached out to me asking if I could mentor her, and what my advice was on her upgrading her camera. After a few messages back and forth, I talked her into getting a better camera than mine (wait, what?!) and we also arranged a time for her to come down to Columbus to spend the day with me, figuring out her new camera.
One of my bride's from back in June recommended Nick + Chaney to me. A family friend offered to do their wedding photos, but they still wanted some professional engagement photos, so when Chaney asked her friends, Jenna recommended me!
It was great getting to meet them and chat about their plans for the future. Their wedding in December will be so amazing, and they both can't wait to get their life together started. They way Chaney looks at Nick is so beautiful, and I'm so excited to see their marriage blossom!
I spent the morning with Erin and Wes running around Granville. When I first arrived, Erin had her heart set on some abandoned property a little ways from their house. She told me how amazing the big red barn would look with the overgrown fields, and my heart started to jump. Any photographer knows how fun barns and fields are!
Sorry guys, this is going to be a sappy post. My best friend just got engaged!
Meet Lizzy. She is one of the best people I've ever known. Lizzy is driven, passionate, talented, smart, beautiful and genuine. She's determined, independent and sassy. She is my best friend and soul sister. I've known her since I was going on 7 and she was going on 4, which means we have known each other for nearly 18 years. I grew up at her house, with her family, and her with mine. We grew up telling everyone we were cousins, even though we easily could have passed as sisters.
When I was in high school, a friend of mine talked me into joining a recreational soccer team with her brother and some of his friends. I reluctantly agreed, and quickly learned how terrible I was at soccer. Despite my lacking abilities at dribbling, passing and shooting (because those are only minor skills, right?), I had a blast and loved my team; Matt was one of those people. Our soccer team grew close; close enough for another Matt (Holly's brother) to make a comment that would forever change his life: "You know, it would be kind of cool if my sister started dating one of you guys."
The first time I met Zach and Gracie, it was a Sunday afternoon in a Panera. I'm usually never nervous for client consultations, but for some reason they had me rattled. After the consultation, I left thinking "Wow, I really don't know if they are going to book me but I sure hope they do!"
So I have known Caitlin for about two years; we started going to the same small group when I began attending Grace Fellowship. Ever since then, her and I and the rest of the women from that small group have always enjoyed each other's company.
And then Caitlin met Jamie, former Ohio State football player and man of her dreams. They had a whirlwind romance and in just a few short months, a ring was on her finger and a wedding date was set! Before I knew it, Caitlin was asking me to photograph her day and I couldn't be more excited!
