Where, oh where?

I live in (and my heart belongs to) Dayton, OH, but my camera and I love to travel. Travel is included for any wedding or portrait session between Cincinnati and Columbus. Travel fees to farther destinations are based on distance.

What’s it like?

I love photographing people who are in love—couples that enjoy laughing and having a blast spending time together. Don’t worry if you think you’re not photogenic, or you aren’t used to having your picture taken! We’ll get to know each other (and get those first few cheesy smiles out of the way!) during your engagement session so that you’re totally relaxed when it is time for wedding photos. My goal is always to use my voice and style to showcase who YOU are, so I love photographing couples who incorporate details into their engagement session/wedding that reflect their unique personalities.

What to wear?

The best guideline of how to dress to be photographed is to dress like your own, snazzy self. Imagine you’re getting dressed for special night out—kicked up a notch! This is the perfect time to bring out those kick-a shoes you’ve been dying for a chance to wear, that favorite vintage piece, or that sparkly, sequined dress you think might be just a tad too much, but you couldn’t resist getting anyway (I’m not the only one with one of those, right?).

If you’re getting your makeup done for your wedding, consider scheduling your trial-run for the day of your engagement photos. You’ll look awesome for you photos and get to really see how the makeup photographs!

Technical stuff

I use professional Nikon camera equipment, and always bring back-ups (and I also often bring along my assortment of toy, film & Polaroid cameras, just for fun!). I do have liability insurance.  And yes, there is Ohio sales tax on photography packages, albums and prints—it is the law!
