I love to tell stories. To me, each event I attend and capture, and every individual I have the honor to work with has a story to tell that is worth telling. These stories are better seen than heard, and oftentimes I find the magic moments that otherwise are too fleeting to remember. That is why I fell in love with photography in the beginning and still to this day is what brings me the most joy in my business. Memorializing stories in imagery to last decades.
Photographing Weddings and Lifestyle Portraits sessions are more than just a job for me! I love telling the stories of the couples, families, businesses and individuals that I work with. Traveling is an added perk, I love exploring new places! One of my favorite things about my business is how I have been able to turn a passion for art into a living where I continually am blessed to meet new faces, reconnect with familiar ones, and see love in news aways with every click of my camera. You will see through the sessions and events on this blog how love grows in unique ways. How people change for the best year after year. And also how I see the world around me.
I started this journey when I was fresh out of high school. I didn't know how greatly my life would be impacted from capturing weddings and families. It has been such an honor to do so over the last decade. Being able to capture my hometown and surrounding areas has been such a treat for me! I LOVE Cincinnati and I am proud to claim the title of a Cincinnati Wedding Photographer. It is a tight but large community of creatives in this region. I am thrilled to work with the best of the best! You'll find some amazing wedding industry vendors linked in the weddings blogged here. Their work is so important to what I do, it isn't only photographs that matter at the end of the wedding day, although they may last the longest ;)
I first met David and Ben at an open house for a Cincinnati venue in the winter of 2019. We hit it off at their engagement session later that fall, and spent two hours spent getting to not only know each other better, but they shared with me their love for their hometown (and of course their sweetest pup!) as well. I always connected to my couples, but The Goodly’s wedding day was something truly amazing. After they shared intimate vows the year before during the state wide shut down on wedding venues, we all finally were able to safely be together to celebrate! It was a day FULL of love. And happy tears. And dancing. And bliss. It was incredible. My sister and I smiled all day long. We cried at their family speeches, and their heartfelt vows. I haven’t met two souls more meant to be than Ben and David. <3 I loved being able to capture every sweet moment.
