Eric and Bethany | The Marmalade Lily

We met near Mason at a venue called The Marmalade Lily. Pulling in I felt like I just entered home. Where blooms, perennials and all sorts of twigs were waiting to branch out and fill the space with beautiful blooms.The driveway was like a dream I had dreamt before, really.

Then, I noticed 4 Peony bushes on my drive in and I knew this was the place that was going to create magic.

Eric and Bethany greeted me with a hug and a few jokes. This was the first time I had met them and it almost did not feel that way. It was causal and comfortable. Calm. We talked about how the wedding planning is coming along and then proceeded with the session.

They reminded me of high school love-birds. You know, the couple that flirts in a cute way. Always looking and smiling at each other knowing they love the heck out of that person. Eric knew how to get the cutest giggle out of Bethany and throughout the whole entire session they trusted every pose I put them in. Never fussed and tried their best to have fun during the hour they were with me.

And my gosh you guys are fierce. Fierce in the way you love each other and how you care for one another. Your beauty on the outside and the inside is fierce and that is something to be proud of.

Thrilled is an understatement…but I am so thrilled to be apart of your wedding. You have put so much work into planning a perfect day with your families. I am so blessed to know you and share your love story with everyone in the world! It is such a perfect story to share.

The countdown is on!


Susie and Ryan | Cincinnati, OH

The day we met it was raining but we rushed inside Starbucks, nuzzled into our seats with a warm drink keeping our little fingers warm. Ryan was first and then Susie trailed behind him. Meeting them both for the first time was almost like reconnecting with friends from years past. It was comforting and they had open arms, allowing me into their love story. It was no coincidence that we saw rain on their wedding day. Almost mirroring the day we met inside that coffee shop.

Some call it bad luck but these two are the luckiest there are.

Susie has a loving heart and Ryan compliments everything that goes along with her loving personality. They both have been there for us when we needed support from friends and we plan to return the favor whenever it is needed.

So on their rainy wedding day, we celebrated these two. Put aside the weather, went for Plan B and they got some breathtaking images from trusting in us. There were so many beautiful moments throughout the day and you could sure tell that they are loved by many. As much as we are sad to see it end, we know that it is just beginning for them.

Susie and Ryan, don’t ever change who you are. Be brave with one another. Fight every battle holding hands. When it is hard to love, try harder. You two are perfect as one. Don’t let the world tell you otherwise.

We love you guys so very much.

Lauren + Drew | The Transept, Cincinnati OH

A little past the one o’clock hour. Her dress was pulled easily over a perfect up-do, resting snug on the bride’s hips. From the lower portion of her bosom they began the puzzle. Interlacing each loophole over each button all the way up to the small of her back. In the reflection she finished. Sliding each stiff post through to clasp the back of her earrings. Slipping on her flats easily and gazing at her finished look. Taken aback that the time had finally arrived and she would soon be seeing him.

We knew that we lucked out when Lauren and Drew decided to book us. Together they are going to do great things. Their kind behavior, genuine smiles and overall compassion won us over. They are laid back and trusted us from the minor moments all the way to major details when it came down to planning their timeline. They trusted that the chilly minutes spent posing in the park would result in warm, lasting memories.

Lauren and Drew, you had a fantastic day! Looking around at your reception so many of your family and friends were enjoying themselves to the fullest; that is a true celebration. We wish you many years of love together and we are so thankful that our paths crossed yours. We wouldn’t be the couple we are today without meeting you. Thank you for trusting us and inviting us to be a part of your most-special day.


Chris + Jessica | Cincinnati, OH

Their bus awaited them outside, visible through a wall of glass that filled the lobby with a bright, natural glow. For a few moments, all eyes in the lobby are focused on these ten women, a smiling sea of blue surrounding Jessica. Brunch conversations were taking place and guests were sipping their coffee while secretly watching this beautiful bride walk through. On a path to meet her soon to be husband, In front of many they would soon exchanging their vows. The bus, loaded, set off for St. Andrew church.

Jessica has emotion that our hearts love. She is not afraid to show her love for Chris and takes in the intimate moments. They love each other well, compliment the best way and know how to have fun as a couple. We happen to be partial to their wedding date because we share one with them. So, spending our 1st anniversary was the best way to celebrate! Both of their families and all of their friends were so kind. As soon as we started the day we felt as though we were surrounding by many friends we had known for years.

Jessica and Chris, may you have so many years of hugging each other every day for the rest of your lives. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better to spend the day with and we are so thankful we got to share your day with you! So, in these next years to come, don’t forget to love hard and forgive a lot. We are so happy for the two of you!
