"Blessed are those who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing"

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 […]

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! Their adorable pup Buster even joined in when we could get him to stop playing. We were hoping for snow […]

I collaborated with an amazing team to create this modern, minimal wedding inspiration shoot at Lake Arts Studio. I drew inspiration for the color palette from neutral but elegant architecture in London & Paris. I also wanted to create something wintery since the shoot took place in February.

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 […]

We were able to squeeze in a short engagement session for Chelsea & DJ while they were in town home for the holidays (and don’t forget the cutest pup Ivy!!) We might not have gotten snow but I have so many favorites from this session. I think it just proves that you don’t always need […]

I met Maggie & Omar accidentally over hibachi. We were actually out for our own wedding anniversary & happened to strike up a conversation.
