Rustic Elegance Irongate Equestrian Center Wedding | Sadie + Kevin

Sadie and Kevin’s Irongate Equestrian Center wedding was so relaxed, fun, and joy-filled. We absolutely loved the classic elegance of their day, with the perfect amount of rustic charm mixed in. It fit their personalities perfectly. It was very apparent that Sadie and Kevin had meticulously thought out, found, and created the details for their day, and everything came together beautifully! And what better way to end an incredible day than with a big bonfire and s’mores?! Love it!

A Sweet Eden Park Cincinnati Engagement Session | Kristel + Ryan

It’s always fun when we get to photograph our couples in places that they love, so it was perfect that Kristel and Ryan wanted to start their engagement session at Eden Park, a favorite of theirs that also happens to be right down the street from their home in Cincinnati. After Eden Park, we headed a few blocks west to Over the Rhine, where we finished out their session, and I have to say, this sweet couple is so adorable together! We absolutely loved spending the evening with them! On a side note, we just have to brag on Kristel and Ryan a little bit for a second. Not only are they super cute, but they’re also incredibly thoughtful. Since they know how much we love macarons, they picked some up from a local shop to give to us, and oh my goodness were they delicious! We felt like we were cheating on Pistacia Vera a little bit, but it was totally worth it. (; Anyhow, after their engagement session, we’re even more excited to photograph Kristel and Ryan’s Pinecroft Mansion wedding next year!!

Naples Beach Anniversary Shoot | Kari + Trevor

We had so much fun getting to know Kari and Trevor a little bit better while in Naples. They are talented photographers/videographers (KariMe Photography/740 Films), and we’re so glad that we got a chance to exchange some pictures while we were down there. Not only are they talented at what they do, they are also super sweet and encouraging, and just the kind of people that we love being around!

For those interested, during this shoot, we tried out a couple Kodak film stocks that we haven’t really used a ton before, and were pleasantly surprised with the results. Here’s a breakdown of the gear we were shooting with as well as the lab we used.

Cocoa Beach Summer Travels

Back at the end of August, we had the opportunity to spend a wonderful several weeks in Florida, and it was glorious. Sunshine, palm trees, and white-capped waves. What more can you ask for? Today we’re sharing our film from Cocoa Beach with our friends Rob and Lina. Walking along the beach watching the waves come in as seagulls flew overhead was the perfect way to spend an end of summer afternoon.
