Finding the right piece

These two are puzzlers. I made that word up, because a person who does jigsaw puzzles is actually called a dissectologist (thank you very much, Google), and dissectologist just makes me think of that time with the frogs in 9th grade when I almost threw up. So! Puzzlers they are. And photographing and editing their […]

Cracking me up

Mary CRACKS ME UP. I mean, really. She has that subtle sarcasm that just makes me completely unable to be in a room with her without laughing out loud. And she and her whole family have mastered that thing where they just sit around and say ridiculously funny things, often without any expression on their […]

“equal dignity in the eyes of the law”

“It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They […]

destined to be together… an engagement session in german village, columbus

So, I’ve been known to talk a lot about how my couples are meant to be together.  How they seem destined. But what about when it seems like we’re meant to be together – like – the couple and me?  Is that weird?  Because, goodness, I feel it all the time. This couple had me […]

old school video game victories: an engagement session

They met the night before bar exam results came out, these two attorneys.  He was one of the first people who congratulated her on passing.  Since then, their journey together has taken them elsewhere, but their hearts *might* just belong here in Columbus.  So we partied it up Columbus style!  Had drinks at 16-bit bar+arcade, […]

“I could not have imagined this day.”

I struggled and I struggled with how to write this one.  I am a story teller.  I LOVE telling my clients’ stories.  I want to keep them personal, and not make any general wide-sweeping statements with them.  It’s their story after all, and this one’s an especially good one.  I promise I’ll get to it.But with […]

a tiny glimpse of the future (also, my first curling joke)

They met on the curling ice, courted on the ice, and got engaged on the ice.  So it was only appropriate that they should do their engagement session on the ice…    Curlers of the world, DO NOT FREAK OUT about this next image.  It was done safely and carefully, and no ice was harmed. […]

adventures with snowballs and meatballs: a canal winchester engagement session

columbus ohio engagement photographer

“Yep, it’s the Bosco show.” As we looked through their images, this is what Tricia said about her pup’s appearance in their engagement pictures.  It’s hard not to let him steal the show, but thankfully Tricia and Anthony’s love and friendship shines on through here.  We met up in downtown Canal Winchester, where they spend […]

adventures in walking the dog and chasing the sun

We started off at the home they’ll be living in once they’re married, some wine and beer and laughs on the porch.  I love thinking of all the new memories they’ll make in this home!    Then we brought Lou out for a quick walk in their soon-to-be neighborhood. We headed over to the Park of […]

adventures in throwing balls to dogs who don’t really play fetch

This super fun couple brought their pups along to their engagement session, and the way they play fetch had me doubled over cracking up.  It went something like this: step 1: throw the ball step 2: dogs chase after ball step 3: dog in front realizes dog behind is maybe actually chasing him instead step […]
