Columbus Wedding Photography // Jason + Lesley // Camp Mary Orton


These two amazing people put together a truly unique wedding on the grounds of Camp Mary Orton, and I am so glad I was asked to photograph it. Their personalities came through in every detail of the day. Let me run through a quick overview of events so you’ll see what I mean: an early morning zipline over the camp’s ravine, beautiful outdoor ceremony, tons of highly delicious middle eastern food, vintage dinner plates as wedding favors, live performance by The Casey Anthony Trio with DJ KGBeatz proving the dance music, a full court basketball game, Mikey’s Late Night Slice food truck, vegan cakes by Pattycake Bakery, and an insane Ace of Cups karaoke after party.

Thank you, Lesley and Jason, a thousand times over, for allowing me to be there to document all of this.
And another big thanks to the talented Mike Stempler for being an awesome 2nd shooter.

Oh, and if anyone has a bootleg recording of Jason’s rendition of ‘Refugee’, please send that to me immediately!

Columbus Engagement Session // Lesley and Jason


Lesley and Jason’s engagement session was booked for the beginning of July, which turned out to be just a couple days after a major storm left most of Columbus without power. The forecast told us the weather was going to cooperate the day of the shoot so we went ahead with our outdoors-y plans. Things started off great; it was beautiful and sunny. But, apparently all that changed while we were getting some shots inside Bernie’s. We returned outside to very different weather, so we went to wait out the storm and snap some pics in the power-outage-having, candle lit, Ace of Cups. After a little while of studying the radar, Jason and Lesley decided the weather wasn’t going to let up, so we rescheduled our Grange Audubon Park plans for a drier, more pleasant evening. I had such a great time with these two and can’t wait to shoot their outdoor wedding this month! And if it does rain, I say Bring It On! I’ll be covered.
