Joan + Dean // Camp Mary Orton Wedding

In extreme DIY fashion, Joan and Dean enlisted the help of friends and family from all over the country (and world!) to pitch in and contribute some small aspect to make their wedding day personal and unique. This beautiful outdoor wedding was held at Camp Mary Orton, which I’ve shot before , know well, and absolutely love. The highly delicious food (who doesn’t like smoked meat?) was handled by Columbus’s legit BBQ master at Ray Rays, while the graphic design and printing along with decorating duties slash flower arranging, came from Joan’s brother-in-law Kevin and her sister Mary. There are too many contributions like this to list, but I definitely got the sense that this was a very enthusiastic and eager group effort. And why wouldn’t it be? It was for THE JOAN AND DEAN! C’mon, who doesn’t love these two! I’m so thankful I was asked to be there to document this beautiful day.
Congratulations J&D!

Nicole + David // Kelton House Wedding


Nicole and David hosted a very intimate and personal celebration a few weeks ago which began outdoors at the Kelton House for their ceremony, and continued with delicious Italian small plates, wine, and dancing, at The Kitchen. Thank you, David and Nicole, for asking me to be there to document this beautiful day!

HERE IT IS – A selection of some of my favorite photos from the past year. I shot more weddings in 2013 than any other year, by far. For most of them, I was second shooting with other local, and not so local, photographers. Jessica Miller IngrahamHillary FergusonAyesha AhmadChris AramMike StemplerClaire from RouxbyMac Wentz, and Kimberly Potterf – I consider myself extremely lucky to have worked with such an incredibly talented and inspiring group of photographers, so thanks so much to all of you!

Claire + Josh // Columbus Wedding



Claire and Josh were married in a small church in Lancaster Ohio, not far from Claire’s parent’s house, which was where they were having their reception. Ralph and Reda, Claire’s parents, bought the house in less than ideal shape, and with the help of their family over the next few decades, restored it to the extraordinary home I saw on the wedding day. It was designated the historic landmark Pugh-Kittle House in 1983 and made for a beautiful and significant setting for Claire and Josh’s laid back reception. I’d never, in person, seen a groom rock a powder blue tux until this wedding; unbelievable! Thanks so much to Josh and Claire, Ralph and Reda, and the Dixons, for making me feel like such a welcomed guest and asking me to document this beautiful wedding! I’m so thankful for clients like this.
