One of the custom pieces that we help our couples create is a beautiful Save the Date! We like to incorporate their favorite images from their engagement session and the colors for the wedding. Jessica and Bill have a light blue color and silver. I love that they are getting married in Loveland because it has the word love in it. They also included a wedding website for their guests to find more information. I just know their friends and family will love receiving these in the mail!


Leah’s Fashion Forward Photo Session

Category: Misc. | May 16th, 2012

There is something about playing dress up that is always so much fun. So why not get all dolled up for a fun fashion shoot? Leah won our Fashion Forward Photo Session on her eight year anniversary! We started by picking out an inexpensive dress at Yours Truly, Kelly in Reading that looked great on Leah. On the day of the session we met up with Amber from Mary Kay for makeup. I just love Leah’s eyes (aren’t they fierce!) so Amber gave her a smoky eye and a soft lip. Once we put Leah into her dress we accessorized with a fun black headpiece and jewelry. Leah and I had so many great ideas for the session! We started in Kings Mills area by the bike trail and finished in Loveland.

I asked Leah about her favorite part of the session. "My favorite part was shooting in front of the old cartridge factory. I lived in Lebanon and Loveland growing up and we would always pass that building. To actually be on the property in a wedding dress was awesome. "

What was it like to not worry about getting dirty? "It was weird worrying about not getting dirty. I think it’s a bit liberating to do a shoot like that. You’re in this beautiful gown but you’re allowed to get dirty and just go all out."

A big special thanks to Amanda for helping with the actual session, Kelly from Yours Truly, Kelly for helping us find the perfect dress and Amber from Mary Kay for awesome makeup!

Congratulations to Marielle and Brian on their One Year Anniversary. Their wonderful ceremony was at St. James Church of White Oak  and their reception was at Cincinnati Marriott North. We stopped at Mt. Airy Forest for some beautiful photos of the couple and their bridal party. We explored the tree house and the arboretum area. The great thing was that when it was time for photos in the park, it drizzled a little bit (just long enough to take some fun umbrella photos) and then the rain stopped! They had just enough rain for some good luck! Marielle and Brian we wish you two all the very best and many more years of happiness! To see more of their wonderful photos check out their blog post.

Sometimes when you meet someone you just click! When I talked with Kimberly on Skype for our initial meeting we couldn’t stop chatting about her wedding plans. I think we talked for more than two hours! The wedding will be in Columbus and I couldn’t wait to meet these two in person! It was so great to get to know them both better as a couple. We met on the Newport side of the Purple People Bridge and walked over to Sawyer Point. It was the morning of the Flying Pig race and the weather was perfect! These two were so sweet to each other. I love how you can see their personalities and emotions! My favorite part was when I put the couple to the left of a garbage can. I promised them that it wouldn’t be in the photo and it is one of my favorites! Kimberly and Brian, thank you for being so wonderful to work with! I am so excited to photograph your wedding in November!
