I met up with Bliss & Jake for their engagement session at one of my favorite places, the Cleveland Art Museum. Even though it was cold we had the most beautiful golden lighting. These two killed in with their outfits, I love it when my couples dress up! How many excuses do you have to […]

When I asked Chelsea & DJ what their desired wedding aesthetic was, they said “if Joanna Gaines switched from designing houses to weddings.” The amazing team at A Charming Fete absolutely nailed that look. It was the most perfect rustic, yet classic, fall wedding day. Chelsea & DJ just radiated joy all day, it was […]

Jaden & Trace originally planned to get married in California at her grandparents vineyard but had to totally replan because of COVID-19. They stuck to their original date, found a beautiful spot not far from home in the woods for their ceremony and still got married surrounded by their closest family and friends. Others were […]

Randy and Kelsey had their engagement session on the property of her childhood home. I love it when my couples choose locations that have meaning to them personally, it makes the session even more special!

So much winter decor is stuffy, overdone […]

Chloe & Andrew are one of the many couples whose wedding days were affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Everything started to go crazy around here the week of their wedding.

I’m so happy I got to attend this workshop before we all were stuck at home! It’s nice to relive all the swoon worthy details doing this post. I had a long but totally worth it drive down to Cincinnati to Mojave East, which is such a cool venue. You definitely don’t feel like you’re […]
