Cincinnati Wedding Photographer {ashley & kyle}

Ashley & Kyle’s Cincinnati Wedding took place at the beautiful Manor House in Mason.   We started with the girls getting ready at the hotel with the help of the fab Heather Morris of Eros Salon.  Then we went to Manor House where Ashley finished up and got ready to see her Groom!  Kyle & Ashley opted to have a “first look” and see each other before their ceremony for pictures.  That left more time for them to mingle with their guests and start the party after the ceremony.

The ceremony took place in the Manor House Atrium, which is just GORGEOUS!  and then after a few family photos we retreated to the beautiful Carolina Room for the reception.  Everything turned out great and I have honestly never seen a wedding with as many people on the dance floor the entire night!  Jeff with Party Pleasers did a great job keeping the energy high!

Here are some sneak peaks of Ashley & Kyle’s Wedding Day!  Hope you guys are having a blast on your honeymoon!

Cincinnati baby Photographer {avah}

Here is little Miss Avah, already 6 months old, being her cute little self.  Avah came in last week for her session and was so precious.  We had a quick session, since at that age we just shoot as much as we can until the first meltdown, but we got so many cute expressions and even a few smiles:)  Here are some sneak peaks of Avah’s 6 month pictures.

Cincinnati Engagement Photographer {kristen & adam}

I wasn’t sure if this engagement session would EVER actually happen! Between their son getting sick, them getting sick, and the weather (which after we made the decision to cancel – it turned out to be a beautiful late afternoon/evening) – we had to re-schedule 4 times. But you know what they say, all good things come to those who wait…because since we had to postpone, we were able to get permission to shoot at Veraestau in Indiana which is closed during the winter.  This historic landmark is beautiful and full of unique photography spots.

Kristen & Adam have a 7 year old son named Evan, so we decided to make this a Family/Engagement session.  Kristen told me during the session it is the first time they have all 3 had pictures taken together, so I hope they LOVE them!  Here are some sneak peaks of Kristen, Adam, & Evan’s session…

Family Shots:)Just Kristen & Adam:)Love!Im not a big fan of the “traditional” posed family pictures, I want to capture real smiles, fun, and laughter between parents and children…I love these!

Cincinnati Wedding Photographer {amberly & justin}

I was very excited to shoot Amberly & Justin’s wedding because not only did I know she would be a beautiful bride, but they both have such an ease with each other, they are very fun to photograph together.  We started with the girls getting ready, where Karina from Makeup by Karina was getting the girls beautified.  Then we headed to a park in Batavia for the couple’s first meeting and the wedding party pictures.  I found out RIGHT away that this was going to be a FUN group that was up for anything!  The ceremony & reception were both held at Norlyn Manor in Batavia, OH.  Everything was just perfect, from the weather to the details!  Here are LOTS of sneak peaks for Amberly & Justin of their gorgeous wedding day.

Amberly’s gorgeous flowers were by Susan Foy: The wedding designerThe first look:)I LOVE this next sequence…it shows off their personalities!Once we got to Norlyn Manor, we took a few shots there as well! Thank you for letting be a part of your Special day!  Enjoy the honeymoon!
