Catha & Chris in Dayton!

We had a blast photographing Chris and Catha's engagement session. They're so full of life and personality! I think it is hilarious how they met too. They were both working out at the gym and Catha overheard Chris talking about a not so pleasant side effect of the flu (we'll leave it at that because of the gross out factor) and the rest was history as they say.

Their wedding is this March at the Dayton Women's Club, which is a Dayton landmark that a lot of people don't know about. Its a pretty spot for a wedding and we can't wait!

I-do Boutique Grand Opening!

We are extremely excited and privileged to be apart of the I-do Bridal Boutique in Cincinnati. Created by widely known and accredited bridal consultant Brigid Horne-Nestor of I-do Weddings, the Bridal Boutique is a one-stop resource of Cincinnati's top vendors.

Located in prestigious O'Bryonville (right near Walnut Hills & Hyde Park), the Bridal Boutique is the perfect place for brides who want easy, carefree planning without having to drive all over town trying to find vendors. The Bridal Boutique represents over 30 companies from catering, florists, entertainment and much more. Each vendor has display material as well as a detailed binder of information covering their services. Because the Boutique is staffed with friendly knowledgeable staff, you can get answers and guidance on questions that you may have about vendors.
The I-do Boutique is also home of the Wedding Day Divas, who can provide great wedding planning services to any bride on a budget. Select from a menu of individual services or go for the big planning package. You can also purchase many cute and unique table favors and wedding gifts at the Boutique.

There is plenty of comfortable browsing and meeting space so we will now be able to meet with brides directly in Cincinnati as this will be a satellite office for us. Join us for the Grand Opening on September 30th!

Kara and Nathan in LoDo!

Kara and Nathan are getting married at NCR Country Club next year, but we were able to time things just right and photograph them in Denver where they now reside. We had a great time in Denver's LoDo (lower downtown) area working with the city as our backdrop.

We hardly left a block unturned and hit many of Denver's landmarks like the Union Station, Larimer Street and the Platte River Pedestrian Bridge. We worked around a few thunderstorms and high winds, and it was definitely worth it! Can't wait for the wedding!

Jennifer & Todd in Boulder!

I had the pleasure this past weekend to photograph Jennifer and Todd's engagement session in Boulder, Colorado. We photographed up and down Boulder's famous Pearl Street, and also stopped at the Walnut Brewery where they had their first date. We even did a few photographs on the beautiful grounds of Planet Bluegrass before a concert.

It was a perfect fall day in the mountains and we had a lot of fun! Jennifer and Todd are getting married in Cabo, Mexico this December and wish them all the best!

Amy & Gary

We have worked with Amy and her family for years (all the way back to her Bat Mitzvah in fact!) and we're super excited to now be photographing her wedding next June at the Schuster of our favorite places.

We worked around a few rain drops, but we still had fun photographing at DAI and other scenic spots downtown for their engagement session. It was great meeting Gary and we know they have many many years of happiness ahead of them! Congrats!

Ashley & Chad!

Ashley and Chad a charming wedding held at her parent's scenic home. The weather was beautiful, the fall colors were perfect and everyone had a great time!

Ashley and Chad's wedding had a wonderfully welcoming and relaxing feel to it. The guys wore suits and flip flops, Ashley even went barefoot, and their dogs played amongst the guests....although they dressed for the occasion with bow ties. Their dog Frisco stole the show many times during the day including joining them for their first dance.

We had photographed Ashley's cousin's (Chelsie and EJ) wedding last December so it was great to see a lot of familiar faces. Thanks for sharing such a special day with us! Enjoy Hawaii!

Melanie and Page!

Last weekend we were lucky to travel to Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia for Melanie and Page's wedding. Having not been there before, it was fun to experience the history and southern charm that Williamsburg offered. We got into town early enough to photograph some of the local sites as well as their rehearsal dinner in the beautiful Oval Garden.

The wedding day was a little warm, but we made thorough use of the Williamsburg Lodge's scenic setting. Friends and family traveled from all over the country to share in their special day and enjoy the holiday weekend. We had photographed Melanie's sister's wedding earlier this summer so it was great to see everyone again.
Congrats to Melanie and Page, Jennifer and Brian and Mark and Terry for planning such beautiful weddings so close together. Enjoy!
