Black and White Reception Magic


When looking over a photographer’s portfolio, you’ll often find romantic portraits, stunning ceremonies or sweet bridal party moments that happen in glowing natural light. However, that’s only half of the day. The second half, your reception, is a medley of candid smiles, reactions and laughs that show off the real personality of you and your […]

Waimea Valley Oahu Botanical Wedding

Destination, Travel, Weddings

Having gone to design school in Cincinnati and then to California for work, it only made sense for Joe and Jen to continue their journey west for their wedding.

Tyler and Kaitlyn have adored many a Reds baseball game over the years and it’s grown to be an essential part of their dating […]

Cincinnati Wedding at The View

With a cathedral wedding in Hyde Park Cincinnati and their reception overlooking downtown with The View’s floor to ceiling glass walls, it was a smooth transition from classic to contemporary. Toss in […]
