Styled Shoot

Whattapuddle Farms Styled Shoot

I love styled shoots! I don’t get to do too many of them these days but it’s definitely something I want to do more of! It’s all of the amazing, pretty things about a wedding, just without the hustle and bustle of a wedding day (which I love too)! Whattapuddle Farms is a new venue […]

Engagement Session

Summer + Caleb | Engagement Session | Van Wert, OH

The weather is finally acceptable! I’m busy almost every weekend finishing up engagement sessions for my 2019 brides, as well as working with a few model calls I did over the winter! I get so bummed out during the winter when I can’t get out very often and shoot like I want to. I’m always […]

Emily & Stony – Cedarville University

I’ve lived in Dayton for almost 6 years, and I didn’t realize how close we live to Cedarville! I used to go to Cedarville University as a kid for church events and it was so nostalgic to visit! Stony, Emily and Mimosa are the sweetest ever! They were super thoughtful and they were definitely troopers as […]

I started out with families and seniors, with the plan to never get into weddings because I thought they were going to be too overwhelming. I booked my first wedding and everything from planning to […]

How to support a small business without spending a single penny

It’s Black Friday folks! I spent years working in retail, spending the entire night right in the middle of it. I cried every year on Black Friday. Ahh, the memories 😂 Because of this experience, I choose to stay home, watch Christmas movies and decorate my house for my favorite holiday! Black Friday is such […]

Lauren + Nick | Springfield, OH Wedding

 I feel like the story of my 2018 weddings was rain!   Almost all of my weddings this year have been pretty rainy which is super unfortunate, but we made it work and I think all of my couples had gorgeous weddings regardless!   Lauren and Nick were my last 2018 wedding. I think we […]

Jeremy + Heather | Troy, OH Wedding

Where is this fall weather we were promised?! Yesterday was an 85° day and boy was it HUMID!   Heather and Jeremy’s wedding was scheduled for 3PM. I arrived at the venue at around 1PM. Typically, I start shooting details and all the little stuff you worked so hard on. As soon as I was […]
