brittany + ben | JORGENSEN FARMS | columbus ohio wedding photography

How is it that we've been in business in nearly a decade and we JUST now had a change to shoot at Jorgensen's Farms?   More importantly, how incredible to have worked with Brittany and Ben in documenting this sweet day for them.  It's hard to summarize this day because every little detail was perfect. From the shoes, to the location, and the insanely emotional first look where the couple had a chance to read their vows to each other ahead of time...

Hope you all enjoy this wedding as much as we did.  Congrats to Ben and Brittany again!

liz + aalap | cincinnati indian dance-party wedding

i'm so excited to be sharing this wedding finally with the world.  liz and aalap met us for coffee in dayton early last year, and as soon as they walked in, i knew whatever their story was, we were going to love it. they had met and dated through college, both played in a punk / riot-girl-inspired band that liz fronted, had a solid base of artist and musician friends in cincinnati, were well established within the indian culture, and wanted to have a wedding that catered to the old world traditions of aalap's family, while keeping that free-spirit of fun and creativity at the core. the entire wedding took place at the historic hoffner logde located in the northside neighborhood of cincinnati. the space was transformed from a traditional indian ceremony, to a family-style sit-down dinner, and finally, to a dance party where an official talking heads cover band (dear friends of the couple) played the night away. all credit to transforming the day and keeping things moving along goes to amber bowers and her crew from adore handmade.  we hope you enjoy the photos!

jenine + alex | seventh son brewery octoberfest wedding.

jenine and alex are very dear to our hearts, and we were so elated when they asked us to shoot their wedding. their octoberfest-themed wedding was laid-back, sweet and full of tarot-card reading goodness. jenine incorporated a german tradition of log cutting at the end of the ceremony, which put a whole different spin on the whole 'wedding bubbles' exit idea. and all of the details and overall aesthetic of the day was killer. nothing is more rewarding than documenting our friends' weddings. as if watching them say 'i do' wasn't enough, being their photographers we became their shadows and saw all of the moments and emotions of their day; all of the behind the scenes reactions, getting-ready butterflies,  the pure joy of seeing each other for the first time, the excitement of greeting friends and loved ones. it's an emotional roller coaster for them, and us.  and in turn, our photographs become more intimate and blur that boundary between private and shared.  this is as real as it gets.
