Madi grew up in Oberlin – her father worked for the College. She met Lukas while attending a different college. Lukas is from the Czech Republic and is seriously the life of the party. You cannot hang out with him and not want to be his friend. Madi is incredible smart, beautiful and on her …
I first met Olivia when she was working at Adeva Salon and Spa. She is a gorgeous young lady and when she told me she was getting married and wanted me to photograph her wedding and engagement session I was so honored. She and Jordan grew up in the area and have known each other …
Marissa is my hair dresser. And our good friend introduced her to her now fiancé. They are a beautiful couple and Marissa wanted to have their photos taken on her property in South Amherst. It had been her grandmother’s home and she had many happy memories there. Zach surprised her by refurbishing an old shed …
Amelia & Sean are getting married this coming October, but with a ton of big things going on in their lives right now, we decided it was time to take their engagement pics. And what better place then Indigo Lake in Cuyahoga National Park. Not only is this picturesque locale serene and beautiful, but it is where Sean proposed to Amelia. Love it!
So, Sarah and Steve grew up in Ohio and are getting married here, but they live in Washington DC and when they booked me to photograph their wedding they asked if there was any way I could come to DC to do their e-sesion.
They share a love of their German heritage and decided to dress the part for their engagement session. We took full advantage of the lovely first flowers of Spring, and despite the CRAZY winds, managed to get some great photos.
We did the e-session in Nika’s hometown, OBERLIN! Since it was pretty cold, we did some shots in the studio and then the two brave soles ventured out with me into the frigid December snow. We walked around Tappan Square and downtown Oberlin and then headed to the Res for some sledding.
Amy found out about me because she gets her hair done at Adeva. She contacted me, we met and looked at my wedding albums, and I created a custom package for her wedding photography. For all weddings over 6 hours, I throw in an engagement session for free. I do this for several reasons. 1. It is a fun way for me to get to know the couple. 2. It is a chance for me to take portraits of them in some cool locations during a session with no time constraints. And most importantly 3. The e-session is the BEST way for my couples to learn how to relax in front of the camera, get used to my style, and hopefully learn how to completely ignore (unless I get their attention) so that on their wedding day they stay focused on each other and the moment.
Courtney and Marcus are ADORABLE together. I first met them around town. Marcus works for the college and his parents own the beautiful jewelry store in town, Herricks! Courtney grew up here and works at Herricks. They came to my studio opening and loved my work. Well, long story short, Marcus proposed and now I am photographing their engagement and their wedding! I can’t wait.
Cary or “Dr. Foster” as he is known, works with my husband. He is a super sweet guy who has been dating a woman named Lilli long distance for awhile now. For months, he has been planning on asking her to marry him. My husband and I have been privy to these plans and every time Lilli came to visit, it was SO hard to keep my mouth shut. I had seen her ring before she did! (Good job Cary, btw).
