As they were planning their Dayton wedding from their home in California, we’d only meet in person briefly before their wedding weekend–at Morgan & Brian’s wedding earlier in the summer–and snuck in a quick engagement session when they got in town. But, a wedding at Holy Angels, with photos around UD? A beautiful, farm reception venue? And a sweet-as-pie couple with a fantastic group of (mostly Flyer) friends surrounding them? Such a perfect day. And the cherry on top? Three of my fantastic, Flyer couples all in one place. Thanks to the random guest who let me throw my camera around your neck and took this shot, probably my favorite photo of the 2014 wedding season:

I have so many lovely sessions and weddings to catch up blogging, after the end-of-season busyness! Like Sharon & Ronnie’s, which makes me miss sunshine and green and it being warm enough to play outside (and it is always such a treat when couples bring their dogs along for their engagement session). These two are just so cute together–I don’t think five minutes went by without Ronnie making Sharon laugh! It will be such an honor to be photograph their wedding next August.

This past wedding season, I had the privilege of photographing the weddings of several dear friends. Jillian is someone who I’ve been lucky enough to know for quite a few years now, and it was such a blessing to have the opportunity to photograph her marrying her love. It also was an absolute treat to photograph my first Orthodox wedding, full of such beautiful traditions.

You may remember them from their apple orchard engagement session, and they carried that theme all the way through their wedding–hand-crafted apple details were sprinkled everywhere, just perfect for their fall day. And so much fun! Their bridal party was an absolute riot, and from the toasts to all their guests circling around them as they danced, you could just feel the joy that surrounded these two as they begin their appley-ever-after.

There was so much laughter on this misty, gray-fall evening! Victoria and Thomas’ session was the kind where I mostly stayed quiet, and zoomed in from far away, because they were simply having so much fun–and are so ridiculously cute together–that I hated to remind them that they were having their picture taken. (And, um, lightsaber battle? The coolest.) Can’t wait for their intimate wedding next year at the beautiful Wiedemann Hill Mansion.
