Valerie & Danny's | Spring Wedding Columbus Ohio

This wedding was definitely a whirlwind, but in the best way possible. I only got to meet Valerie and Danny a few days before their wedding!!! Challenge, yes, but, let's face it, I like challenges and I like working under pressure..why else would I be a wedding photographer?! 

When I first spoke with the bride's Mom Jenny, she told me that Valerie is always smiling and laughing and that her and Danny are just really sweet together..well she was right. Not only do Valerie and Danny light up a room, they bring so much life too! It didn't hurt that Valerie is stunning and extremely photogenic :) These two have been through a lot together and everyone was so happy to finally see them make it to the alter!

3 Keys to Choosing the Perfect Photos for an Album

If you are like most people, you don't typically have to pick from a hundred or hundreds of photos in order to create a photo album. Since this is something that most of my clients purchase with their photos, I wanted to share these four simple tips.

How to Rock Your Engagement Session Tips & Tricks!

Planning a wedding can be stressful and overwhelming at times. Let this photoshoot be something you really just enjoy together and let's have some fun! Here are my best tips and tricks to making your engagement photoshoot the best it can be.

Maggie & George's Classic Hilton Netherlands Wedding

Hands down one of the best celebrations I have witnessed! Maggie & George spared nothing to ensure their wedding day included all of the people they love so much- friends and family from all over came to the Hilton Netherlands in Cincinnati to celebrate the joining of these two people. This was my first completely Jewish ceremony and it did not disappoint. I love learning new traditions and how they differ and are similar to each other. 

If anyone knows these two, they know these three things: 1. They don't settle: with their wedding day or with their choice of partner! 2. The people they choose to surround themselves with and their families are of the utmost importance to them. 3. They ADORE each other and are best friends. Knowing all of this, it is no surprise to me that for years to come people will be talking about this day!
