The forecast for this session almost made us cancel it.

"Thirty-mile-an-hour winds aren't ideal," I said.

I'm so glad we didn't. 70 degrees. Sunny and serene. It turned out to be the first warm and wonderful spring day of the year and oh what a gift it was.

Ohio, you mysterious fool, we all love you.

This session was simply satisfying. I know Christie and Ben through a handful of different threads and relationships in our community here in Columbus, but this little window of time was a long-anticipated hour carved out to spend time with just these two.

We talked about wedding plans, favorite dates, cactuses, and dream jobs. I had a premonition I would feel this way, but I left feeling inspired to infuse my life with more intentionality, patience and simple joy, knowing that's what I'd found planted in these two.

Ben and Christie, you're both wonderful and I can't wait to witness your wedding in the winter!

Will :: Senior Photo, Columbus, Ohio

My family has known Will's family for as long as I can remember. It was 15 years ago that our moms and a handful of others were sipping coffee in a suburban living room, kids playing on every free space of floor in the house, having just prayed together. Community is a beautiful thing. 

Congratulations to Will as he finishes up high school!

Melissa + Andrew :: Wedding Photo - Columbus, Ohio

Melissa + Andrew :: Wedding Photo - Columbus, Ohio

I had the pleasure of taking engagement photos for Melissa and Andrew last November, which was when I was introduced to this couple's abundance in personality. If you're not on you're toes, you will miss one of Andrew's priceless camera stares. Pure talent, which makes sense given his background in directing film. And that's not all. Melissa, a photographer and designer, spread her artful hand over all of the details of the day, from vintage cameras to beautiful print (see the popcorn bags??). 

Through Andrew and Melissa's wedding we all encountered a solid community of family and friends upheld by lots of grace and faith. A true gem of a day.
