I can't believe 2015 is almost over! This has been such a phenomenal year, not only for my business and all of the wonderful new clients/friends I have met, but for personal growth as well. And what better way to end the year than with a romantic engagement session for one of my newly-engaged friends?! DJ and I have been friends since high school and I am so happy that he will be tying the knot with the love of his life in less than six months! Nicole is one of the sweetest girls I have had the pleasure to meet, and you can tell how much they truly care about each other by just spending a few minutes with them.
Wedding season may be done, but as you may have guessed I stay pretty busy on the weekends-- away from my Photographer job at the A&F Homeoffice-- and have many of other shoots on the side. Lately, ever since being accepted into the Photography: Mastered program, led by world renowned fashion photographer Nick Knight, I have had plenty of editorial shoots to keep me buzzing with creativity! Collaborating along side one of the best hair and makeup artists (and a great friend of mine) Sharon Casey, we have created some pretty neat work together allowing our visions inspired by mood boards to come to life.
You may remember a few months ago when I photographed/blogged a sweet proposal at Antrim park...well, here are Morgan and Ryan again, but now for their real engagement session! ;) Their dog, Lucy, even made an appearance for a few photos and I was so impressed at how well-behaved she was in front of the camera! It was so fun to photograph these two again and get to know them even better.
Well friends, my 2015 wedding season is officially over and it ended on a high note with a super fun wedding reception at Station 67! Kylee and Cameron are friends of mine from high school who have been together for quite some time now, and it was so exciting to photograph them as husband and wife! They got married in Florida the week before, and then had their Reception in Columbus. The video footage I saw from their sunny ceremony down south was absolutely amazing.
Meet Bita and Ahmed, two insanely in love people who were so much fun to capture last weekend at their engagement session! We went to Sharon Woods Park which is beautiful this time of year. Spending the morning with Bita and Ahmed and getting to know them was so much fun. They are so happy, energetic, and stylish! Not to mention they were both complete naturals in front of the camera and I feel like their happiness and love truly shines through in these photos.
This week has been jam-packed for me, but I love to stay busy. Monday in particular was a fabulous day! I gathered with 9 other insanely talented and creative lady photographers for a fall styled shoot, "Snap and Gather". All of us brought different props, foods, florals, etc. to make this shoot come to life, and if I do say so myself, it was breathtaking! It was so wonderful to meet all of these ladies, talk about life, our passions, our dreams, highs and lows with our businesses, and of course eat and drink some delicious foods/cider/wine! Being part of such a supportive, encouraging community and supporting Community over Competition-- which has become huge in Columbus-- warms my heart.
