Pat & Christina // MARRIED // Columbus Country Club

columbus_ohio_wedding_photography

I'm so excited to share this beautiful wedding! This one is extra special for me, because I've known Pat for about a million years. And I just loved Chris the moment I met her. They're just perfect together, and it was so apparent at the wedding, as they were surrounded by friends and family supporting their marriage. As part photographer and part guest (I was only 2 weeks post partum!), I sobbed as I listened to their best man and matron of honor speeches. I'm so thankful to have been a part of their big day (complete with a White Castle late night snack). And one more big thanks to our friend and colleague Hristina from Aperture for collaborating with Mike in my absence.

Enjoy!

Liam 2/24/17

On February 24th at 6:30pm after 24 hours of labor followed by an unplanned C section, Liam Michael Horgan was born. Although it's only been 3 weeks, it's hard to imagine how things were without our squishy faced finger toed little man. Leading up to the big day you receive plenty of advice and hear all the cliches, but it truly isn't something that can be put into words. Hopefully these images do a better job of telling the story of how little Liam Michael came into the world and the crazy first few days of his life.

Kelsey & Ryan // Franklin Park Conservatory // Columbus Ohio Wedding Photography

Our LAST wedding of 2016, Kelsey & Ryan's wedding somehow still managed to sneak in some peak fall leaves (see all that vibrant color below!). Although it was a chilly mid November day, Franklin Park Conservatory was as beautiful as ever, and we were so thankful when the couple agreed to step outside for portraits (and even again after dark!). The ceremony was sweet, and the reception was a blast. The live band made guests flock to the dance floor, and the couple danced through night as their friends and family circled around them for the last song. See it all below - plus a few photobooth photos for your entertainment! :) 

 

 

Baby Abigail // Columbus Ohio Lifestyle Photography

One of my favorite things to do when wedding season winds down is shoot in-home sessions. Having a small window into the personal lives of our clients is a pretty special thing. Especially during major changes like the addition of a new little one. We had the pleasure of shooting older brother Eli's newborn photos a few years ago, so it was that much more exciting returning to meeting baby Abby. Scroll down and soak up those baby cheeks!

Karlie & David // Strongwater // Columbus Ohio Wedding Photography

I'm so excited to finally share more photos from one of our favorite 2016 weddings! Karlie & David were married on a beautiful sunny September day in the heart of Franklinton. Mike and I fell IN LOVE with Strongwater the moment we walked in. As a venue, it's definitely one of the most interesting and versatile spaces Columbus has to offer. And Karlie & David had so many beautiful details - more specifically, an amazing custom floral arrangement for the ceremony space (by Evergreen Flower Co, see below). And as always, thanks to the other vendors who helped to pull off a flawless day for the happy couple (see credits below). Enjoy!

Baby Seamus // lifestyle newborn

It's been a while since we've posted. You may notice we've been a little quiet on social media and that's because not only did we have an insane summer and fall (didn't everyone?!), but we're also getting ready to welcome a new addition to our family - a baby boy due in February. I never imagined how much time we would spend preparing for this little guy, but it consumed most of our free time the past couple months. I'm sure we'll flood your feeds with photos of him once he arrives, but until then I'd love to share some work from 2016.

I thought it might be appropriate to share some lifestyle and newborn photos since we're on the topic. First up is baby Seamus. I was so excited to finally meet him (about a week and a half early!) after getting to know his parents during their fall maternity session back in October. So for fun, I thought I'd share both sessions together (bonus! there's a puppy too). Enjoy the cuteness!
