As some of you may know, I recently organized and shot a Styled Bridal Shoot, that has been accepted to be exclusively featured on Artfully Wed on April 11th!  I am so over the moon happy about this accomplishment, and extremely humbled by the entire experience.  It was an absolute pleasure to work with so many incredibly talented local wedding vendors (listed below). 

This styled bridal shoot was full of greenery, elegance, timelessness, and romance.  Capturing a real love story as a styled shoot was very important to me.  Ewa and Jeromy are in their first year of marriage and are the sweetest, most relaxed, fun, "go with the flow" people you will ever meet!  They were totally down to do anything I had in mind for this styled shoot (even freezing outside in February for the outdoor photo portion) and were so much fun to work with.  I think they both missed their calling as being models because they totally nailed it in every shot!  Ewa and Jeromy are actually the food junkies behind the very popular food blog, Nom Life.  They document their travels through the 614 (Columbus, Ohio) eating at all sorts of different restaurants/bars, while encouraging locals to try new spots for tasty food!  Ironically enough, they actually met while both working at a Chinese restaurant, and the rest was history!

I shot both medium format film and digital for this shoot, and couldn't be happier with the outcome.  I can't wait to share the featured on Artfully Wed.  Stay tuned friends!! Thank you for always supporting and encouraging me! <3
