Kylie & Kevin

I'm obsessed. I think it's particularly romantic and intimate when you decide to do a first look.   Even more so when that one on one time becomes a private moment to recite your vows to each other.  Kylie cried, Kevin cried, I cried. We were all red eyed and emotional.  I couldn't even hear exactly what they were saying, but what I realized in that moment and in between pressing the shutter was that this was genuine.  This was for them and they didn't need to prove it to anyone else and to them that's all that mattered.  I'm raising my glass of morning coffee to you people who do this for love.

I'm partial to the nontraditional ones.  Who said you have to have a big wedding? Or that the groom can only see you for the first time when you're walking down the aisle? Or even that you have to get married in a church? This is about two people, and two people only.  Whether your church is a brilliant cathedral or under the branches of tall pines, I think it's important to create a celebration that is tailored to you.  Makenna and Jake did it right in my books.

Brittany & Taylor

When you're all three craving adventurous moutainous engagement photos but we live in the heart of Ohio... We did some digging on the internet, and some hiking, and some climbing, and found a Bali gem within a short driving distance.  Taylor and Brittany showed up looking like a flawless boho romance dream.  A photographer's (especially me) dream. I think one reason I've looked at these over and over is because of how honest and genuine their affection was.  The best part of an engagement session is to let me document your love exactly how it is.  No signs, no props, just true raw emotion.  My heart gains about 70 pounds when I catch Taylor's eyes smile at Brittany. And to me, THAT is a great love story.
