Columbus Engagement Session | Jamie + Jordan

Ahh, we are so excited to share this session with you guys! Not just because we had an awesome time with Jamie and Jordan and they are naturals in front of the camera (both of which are totally true), but also because of the way they love each other. You can just see it in their eyes…it’s obvious that there is no one else in the world they’d rather spend their life with. It’s so much fun to capture that kind of love, and they made it super easy. We started out at The Ohio State University, where they both went to school, and made our way around to a couple of their favorite spots on campus.

Oh, The Many Reasons We Love Spring!

Hello, and happy tax day! Yay! Right? Ok, maybe not, but it also means that Spring is now in full swing! So in honor of Spring, and to distract us from the fact that it’s tax day, here are several of the many reasons that we absolutely love Spring!

1. Opening up our windows to let some fresh air in
2. Waking up to birds chirping
3. Breakfasts on the porch
4. SUNNY DAYS!!! Ah how we’ve missed warm, sunny days!
5. The world becoming green again
6. The start of wedding season!:)
7. Being able to spend time outdoors

And here’s a little sneak peek at this past weekend’s engagement session, which we’ll be sharing more of very soon!:)

Blog_008 And to help just a little bit more with the tax day blues, share with us the reasons you love Spring, and one lucky commenter will receive a $25 gift card to our absolute favorite ice cream shop, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams!:)Annnnnd, GO! (And don’t worry if you don’t have a Jeni’s near you…you can even have it shipped to your home!) Giveaway ends Thursday, April 17th at midnight, and the winner will be announced on Friday, April 18th.

//UPDATE// Congrats to Mary Heminger on winning the Jeni’s gift card!!

Sarah Cropper - I love spring because the trees bloom and the grass turns green again. An absolute dream for photos :) Happy Spring, Jeremy and Amanda!

Amanda R. - I love having the windows open and taking long walks in the evenings during spring!

Jill B. - I love living in a place with four seasons, so I think my favorite part of Spring is just watching and anticipating the change – little buds growing, putting away the winter coats, opening up windows. I also love that it’s the end of tax season and I get my husband back! Haha! :)

Mary Heminger - I LOVE spring because… My ankles get to see the sunlight again, I get to roll my windows down, and I also LOVE to break out my hammock and soak up the sunshine :)

Grand Oaks Wedding | Jaimie + Max

Happy Saturday!

We were blessed with some absolutely gorgeous spring weather last weekend for Jaimie and Max’s Grand Oaks wedding, and a fun and great looking group of people to boot. From the embroidered robes and gift bags for the bridesmaids, to the string quartet, and a bubble send-off, they made this day so special! It was the perfect way to kick off the wedding season!:)

Congrats you two, and thank’s so much for having us there to photograph your big day!

Washington on Film

We have loved learning how to work with film, especially when it comes to taking pictures for ourselves…documenting our own life together. So as we were exploring the area on and around Whidbey Island in Washington, we toted our film cameras around with us, so that maybe we can put the pictures into on of those big photo albums with the sticky board covered with the clear plastic film, so that someday, when our grandkids ask what life was like for us and what did we do for fun when we were younger, we can just pull out that old musty smelling photo album and tell them all of the stories.

The first batch here were shot on our Nikon FE with Fuji Pro 400H film, and they were processed at Indie Film Lab.

And one last picture…it’s not film, but I’m so glad that we have it. A huge thank you goes out to that girl that was on the beach that day and offered to take a picture of us together! We really do need more pictures of us together:)Washington-In-Digital_030
