My dear friend Bley, also known as Bibliosophy, creates some of the most beautiful vintage-inspired paper goods. We meet up at Lost & Found, a studio space & prop rental service here in Dayton, to photograph her “fresh crop” of new products. I do so adore getting to collaborate with other talented local artists–we have so many inspiring creatives in our little town. Be sure to check out her Etsy shop (including her gorgeous custom work and cute-as-a-button Valentines!), or pick up her items locally at Sherwood Florist.

Libby and Trent were married at the historic (and stunning!) Memorial Hall in downtown Dayton, on beautiful late-fall day. Though most of the leaves were off the trees, my second-photographer Amanda (who is, in general, one of the most amazing people ever, and who also captured some of the images above) spotted a little red-and-orange corner across the street from Memorial Hall that looked amazing with their wedding colors (how gorgeous were those flowers, by the Flowerman?), and was so perfect for some of Libby & Trent’s wedding portraits. I also happened to know quite a few of the guests and family members at this wedding, which is always a blast–there is always something a little extra-special-sweet about getting to experience the wedding-day joy with people you know (and watching them get down on the dance floor!). Ceremony music was provided by Viva la Strings, my mother’s wedding string ensemble, and cocktail hour music by Sweet Betsy, who also did the cocktail hour at my wedding–it really did feel like a family affair :).

The day of Christina and Zach’s wedding at Polen Farm was exceptionally cold for an October evening. They decided to tough it out, though, and have the ceremony outside, which wasn’t surprising to anyone who knows Christina–she is a runner, used to pushing through the elements to reach her goals. And, despite the chill, the evening provided us with the most beautiful hour of sunset light, right as their ceremony began. The reception that followed was an absolute blast, with friends and family ready and eager to celebrate with the happy couple. Special thanks to Ana, my second photographer, for helping me out!

Ah, I loved getting to work with Tori & David! They are just the sweetest couple, with an adorable love story (they’ve known each other since junior high!). They are planning their wedding apart right now, as David is stationed here in Dayton, where we took their engagements portraits at the Museum of the United States Air Force and where they’ll live after their wedding next summer in Florida. And it was absolutely freezing when we did their photos (can you spot the little bit of snow?), but you can’t even tell in their portraits–they are so bubbly, cuddly and joyful together. Tori’s (gorgeous!) makeup was done by Joni Ormsbee, and hair by Brooke at the Connections Salon.

Max (Maxim Photo Studio) - Good set Briana. I would have thought these were done in the fall with rich warm colors. Nice job.

Cynthia M. Lamb - Absolutely BEAUTIFUL…couple, photography, & especially the bride to be!! Tori, we love you, and pray you and David have a lifetime of the blessings only God can give!!!

Celia and Chris were married September 13th in England, where they live, and it turned out to be quite a Friday-the-13th-type of day: rain, delays and a broken-down car meant the couple made it to their reception much later than expected (and rather soaked!), cutting down on time for portraits and family photos. Luckily they had planned a second reception for family here in Dayton, at the Dayton Country Club. The evening was a bit chilly, but gave us a beautiful sunset for lots of photos, and then their Ohio family gave them so much love, and an exceptionally joyful reception to celebrate their new marriage.
