Jenni + David Get Married! {kitty}

Here's a peek at Jenni + David's wedding in Piqua.  Dan, Nick, and I had a fun drive through the country to get to this charming little town from where David's family hails.  Their wedding is another example of how good planning makes for great photo opportunities.  After the ceremony, we had a ton of time to romp around downtown, get a few shots at David's family's home, and still hit some lovely spots on the grounds of the Piqua Country Club.  Jenni and Dave and I had not met before the wedding, so it was wonderful to get to know them throughout the day! 

I'd been really missing black and white film and conveniently, Jenni and Dave's wedding naturally fell into a vibe where I could play and capture some more traditional style black and white images. That's part of the fun when it comes to weddings - to just go with the flow - no wedding is the same and each will determine how I approach it while I shoot.  While naturally I shoot all weddings in my "style" each has different atmosphere, aesthetic, and pace.  Keeps things unique and interesting! 

Thanks, Jenni + Dave! Congratulations!

Jeannie + Brian Get Married! {Kitty}

Hello again!  Always great to start off the season with a wedding this lovely.  I've been so looking forward to Jeannie and Brian's wedding after the fun of their engagement session and seeing them at Kelly and Dennis' New Year's Eve wedding.

I'm in love with the soft cotton garter!  (Finally a garter that won't scratch.)

We set a side a nice block of time to take photos before the ceremony, which gave us the opportunity to take advantage of the afternoon light.  Jeannie thought ahead and brought along matching hot pink wellies so we could traverse through the woods and stream for their photos. (Which was a good thing, considering all the rain we'd been having!)


The Browning Amphitheatre was a fantastic setting and coordinator Jen Woster-McBride made sure everything went smoothly.  The little flower girl was killing me. She kept practicing tossing the petals to the point where her dad took the basket away from her (which displeased her thoroughly.) When she finally walked down the aisle, she did so without once sticking her hand in the basket...she walked right to her dad in the front row - and dumped the basket out at her feet.  I always hope the little ones will improvise their roles and totally ignore the script. :D

Love and macarons and really great people!  I've photographed some of Jeannie and Brian's friends' weddings and also have a few coming up (like Nicole and Craig this weekend!) Really fun seeing so many familiar faces while I'm working.

Congratulations, Jeannie + Brian and thanks for such a wonderful day!
