Justin + Chelsea's Wedding | Dock580

Sometimes there are just those wedding days that really remind me of how much I love my job. Capturing such a precious day for the bride, groom, and their families always brings me so much joy. Justin + Chelsea’s intimate March wedding was incredibly sweet and heartwarming. It was the perfect way to start our 2018 wedding season! Their vows had every guest in the room getting emotional! They were beautiful and full of so much love. You could tell how excited this couple was to finally be husband and wife!

Both the ceremony and reception took place at Dock580, with most portraits at the Ohio Statehouse. The dusty blue dresses with the white stone and overcast sky made for some of my favorite wedding portraits to date! Their vows had me plenty emotional, but it was the toasts and first dances that had me really tearing up behind my camera!

The closer Darren and I get to our own wedding, the more real it is all feeling. I am right there with my couples who are currently getting married and I can totally share their joy and excitement in this season of life. Justin + Chelsea were wonderful to work with and have us excited for our own wedding day!

Ryan + Samantha's Wedding | Dock 580

Ryan + Samantha's Friday wedding was a gorgeous one! These two planned their entire wedding from LA and everything turned out beautifully. It stormed throughout their wedding day but this couple genuinely did not mind. They were finally husband and wife surrounded by their closest family and friends and that's all that mattered to them!

Their ceremony was outside under a tent overlooking the city skyline of Columbus. The rain fell as Samantha walked down the isle which gave such a romantic, intimate feel to the entire ceremony! By the end of the night I was able to sneak Ryan + Samantha away from the reception to grab some shots outside when the rain stopped for a few. These are some of my favorite images of their day! This couple's happiness and love for one another was so visible. It was wonderful to meet these two, Congrats Mr. + Mrs. Moody!

Ryan + Maddy's Wedding | Dock 580

Ryan + Maddy's wedding was the start to an awesome double header wedding weekend! Their wedding was last Friday and the ceremony took place at Church of the Resurrection in New Albany. Darren and I were really excited to finally photograph at my church, since we will be getting married there too, in exactly one year from today!

This sweet wedding was a ton of fun to photograph. Maddy and her siblings grew up in the same town as I did and we went to the same school growing up. I always love photographing in New Albany!

Their reception was downtown at Dock 580. I just love this venue. The exposed brick and twinkly lights always look perfect in photos. The speeches were my favorite part of the evening. It may be true that these two are opposites (Maddy the professional ballerina and Ryan the country boy who loves to hunt) but it couldn't be more clear that these two were made for each other! I wish Ryan + Maddy the happiest of lives together and hope that they are enjoying their honeymoon together right now!
