Her and Ben’s wedding, though, couldn’t have been more photogenic– a perfect, early-fall evening at the Ohio Barn Bed & Breakfast, with a gorgeous couple and the lovliest group of family and friends surrounding them with love.

Aubrey & Eric are fellow UD Flyers (you may remember that we photographed their stunning engagement portraits all around campus), so there was no question that their day would be a joyful celebration. It definitely was, and it was an absolute honor for us to photograph it.

Catalina came to my studio for full hair and makeup, got a bouquet–she said she felt like a bride all over again.

While I adore photographing couples giddy with brand-new, wedding-day love, there is something so special about capturing a slice of life 10 years past that point. The difference between a love filled with dreams for the future and endless possibility and a love that has been made stronger, been refined, through ups and down and moves and the arrival of children…I say it all the time, but what I do really is such an honor, to be trusted document these precious, fleeting moments. And I would be thrilled to do more sessions like this in the future–drop me a line if you want to schedule a session of your own.

They were absolutely as cute as could be together for their engagement photos, and a total joy to work with, so I knew their wedding would be just a sweet. Their whole wedding day, but especially their ceremony, reflected their profound, quiet love, deeply-rooted in their faith. And, though it kept threatening to rain, it held off for most of the day :).  Adam & Candace, I was so honored to be the one to capture your love! And a special thank-you to my dear friend Jessica, of Jessica Ashely Photography, who was our second photographer, and who captured some of the shots above.

Ceremony & Reception Venue: Beavercreek Golf Club; Flowers: Jan Baker; Makeup: Eyedo; Cake: Tiers of Joy (designed by the groom himself!); DJ: Tim of Party Pleasers
