BEN + CLAIRE // COLUMBUS ENGAGEMENT SESSION

SATURDAYS ARE FOR CRISP WALKS AND PIZZA CHEESE STRETCHES

I followed Ben and Claire around Clintonville on a breezy Saturday morning for their Columbus engagement session. We looked at plants at the Park of Roses, bought some plants at the Clintonville Farmer’s Market, and then baked some onto a crust. Thanks for the delicious pizza, Claire and Ben!

Columbus Engagement Session // Elena and Bryan

SUNRISE ENGAGEMENT

Elena and Bryan were very brave. They agreed to meet me at 6 in the morning to take some pictures for their engagement shoot. That’s a pretty early wake up call to have to deal with on a weekend, but I’m so glad they did. The light was amazing, and we were able to get indoors before we felt the full effects of Columbus’s record heat wave.
90 degrees by 10am, no thanks! My hair would melt off.

Columbus Senior Portraits // Carly // Whetstone Park of Roses

SENIOR YEAR IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN FRESHMAN YEAR THAT PICTURES ARE IN ORDER

Now that this school year’s just about over, I thought I’d share some shots we took for Carly’s senior portraits back in the fall. We returned to the Park of Roses on what turned out to be a beautiful, sunny, and breezy autumn evening. That, combined with Carly’s enthusiasm and ease in front of the camera, really made our jobs easy. Thanks, Carly, and thanks weather; you were both awesome.

Kris and Aaron // Columbus Park of Roses // Wedding

THE RAIN AINT NO THANG!

CH: Any couples planning an outdoor wedding in Columbus can learn a thing or two from Aaron and Kris Shear. We were at the Whetstone Park of Roses when the rain decided to come down just before guests were arriving…and the Wedding Mall was uncovered, getting soupier by the minute. Aaron was quick to act, preparing a nearby pavilion to keep everyone dry during the ceremony. I don’t think Kris even knew what Aaron was up to.

ZK: Aww, their first fight, but I’m sure these two blokes worked it out over some pints at The Elevator, right mates?

CH: Um..Zak, The Elevator’s not an Irish pub, and blokes are men. Also, why would they fight about a great idea?

ZK:  It sure was a great idea, and we got some beautiful shots of the pavilion covered ceremony with the scenic park as the backdrop. Because their original location was rained out, we decided to return to the Park of Roses the following week to do some portraits of the newlyweds at sunset, and I’m so glad we did. I love this set of images, the light was fantastic and really made all the colors of the park come to life.

CH: Yeah. Perfect light. A good-looking couple. Gorgeous backdrop scenery. Makes taking good pictures a little easier…cheater.
