The Start of Engagement Season 2017

The first 5 engagement sessions of 2017 were amazing! Darren and I have loved meeting so many sweet new couples!

Jon + Erin's shoot was the perfect start to the year. We explored the Short North alleys, Goodale Park and ended at the Scioto Mile with a stunning view of the city. It was a sunny February evening but it sure was a cold one! Corbin + Jackie are up next and somehow their March engagement session was even colder but that did not stop them from looking amazing! I have known Jackie for years and let me tell you, she always is dressed perfectly! Their classy Ohio Statehouse e-session was a favorite of mine! Next is Ben + Cindy's session at Inniswoods. They drove down from Cleveland for their session and are getting married at the Pinnacle Golf Club this September. I can't wait! Their shoot was finally the first warm spring day in March! Dalay Ket Event's donated a beautiful bouquet to add a pop of color to their photos as well. These two are so down to earth and fun to work with! The fourth engagement shoot was with Kody + Sierra. I have been planning this session with Sierra for quite awhile now! She knew that she wanted a wood area and country fields in their photos. This couple loves all this rustic and I know their barn wedding this August will display that perfectly! Lastly, session number five was with Frank + Lauren! These two were in town earlier in April and booked a quick mini engagement session in German Village. This couple is actually getting married next month in Belize! How awesome is that?! I loved walking around with them and hearing all about their destination wedding plans. It's been a fun fun so far and I cannot wait to meet so many more couples in the upcoming weeks. Below are some of my favorite snapshots from each of the sessions!


A Weekend in Fort Myers | March 2017

The first weekend of March was spent down in Fort Myers, Florida and it was a much needed mini vacation away from the cold of Ohio! Darren and I will be photographing a wedding here in December so decided to fly down now to view the church and venue plus scope out spots to photograph. Let me tell you, this trip has made me SO excited to come back here at the end of the year!

Lover's Key State Park is where Scott and Melissa's venue is and their outdoor reception on the beach is going to be gorgeous! Ahh, I just can't wait for this destination wedding. Take a peek into our warm weekend away!


The Best of Weddings 2016

My 3rd wedding season was one to remember! I have so many incredible highlights of the year, I don't even know where to begin! I ended 2016 with 24 weddings and my last wedding on New Year's Eve marked by 50th wedding since starting my business! 

I know I say this often, but I cannot express enough how thankful and honored I am to the couples who chose me to capture their wedding day. It's been a fun one, 2016! Enjoy my favorite highlights from each wedding..keep scrolling- there are a lot of great shots!


The Best of Engagements 2016

Another engagement season has wrapped up and it was a great one! With 24 weddings and 16 engagement sessions, it was a year full of Susie Marie couples! From rural country fields to the streets of downtown Columbus, we adventured all over during these sessions.

I loved getting to know each and every couple plus I had so much fun exploring all over with them. Scroll down and click right to view my top highlights from this 2016 engagement season!
