Do dark churches, give you the heeby-jeebies when it’s time to take family formals at the altar? What about reception halls with no windows, or even just regular evening receptions?

This wedding was special for me for SO many reasons. McKinzie and I went to high school together and I still remember all of the birthday parties and high school dances. Getting to photograph these high school sweethearts and all of their friends (most of which I already knew!) was seriously so much fun. The […]

Getting to know Bridget and Chris at their engagement session a few weeks ago was seriously so much fun (I have THE BEST couples for next year!!). We explored Rocky Fork Metro Park in New Albany, Ohio, and they were up for anything. We went off the beaten path for a lot of their pictures, […]
