The Lamb family

It was one of those times…  Their first choice photographer was already booked.  The put the call out on facebook for an alternative and one of my wonderful client/friends spoke up.  I got the call.  And I’m so glad I did because it was a great session!

He and I were playing around while his parents changed clothes.  Remember when you were a kid and you’d spin till you got dizzy?  He did and here’s the result.  I know it’s not for everyone but there’s something about it I really love.

So happy to see Andy and Melanie again!  And had a blast playing with Archer!!

Luci’s Senior photos

Some things just stop you in your tracks.  I met Luci when she was a toddler.  A toddler!!!  Now, she’s a high school SENIOR!!  Her dad is one of my hubby’s best friends and the Best Man at our wedding.  I love this girl so much.  She’s sweet and funny and very smart.  So proud of her and can’t wait to see her take on the big old world of college.  She’ll be awesome.  While we’re at it, she pretty much rocked her senior session.

Tyler’s Senior photos

A couple of years ago, I took some senior photos for an adorable girl named Holly.  Guess what?!  She has a younger brother, Tyler, and he’s actually just as awesome as she is.  So fun to spend a little time with him before he jetted off to a tennis match.

Kim and Sean

Do you remember high school?  Even though I’m a few years removed it, I still remember it.  And thanks to a couple of reunions and social media, I’ve reconnected with several awesome people.  One of those awesome people is Kim.  And oddly enough, even as adults our conversations sometimes turn to…. you guessed it….  guys!  We talked about good ones and bad ones and ones that got away.  Thankfully, I got the call that Kim found “the one” and they’re getting married.  How amazing is that?!

“The one” is Sean and he sure makes Kim happy.  He even managed to propose to her in the most “Kim” way possible.  He asked her to marry him at a Browns game.  My die hard fan of a friend said “yes!”  They shared a couple photos with me.  Want to see?  Proposal1Her face is priceless!!!!

Proposal

Fast forward a few month….  Wedding planning is happening and I get the call for wedding photography.  :)   And where there’s a wedding, there is an engagement and engagement photos.  Being good Westerville girls, that’s where we took our photos.  Uptown first….

Aren’t they adorable?!

Allie and Josh in Kentucky

Hmmm?  A session in Kentucky?  Yes..  Please…

We started out at the Woodford Reserve Distillery.

Sweet….

engagement-session-lexington004

Unfortunately, Woodford Reserve isn’t exactly in the lovebird biz…  They were far more concerned about closing time.  Fortunately, I had taken the “scenic route” in and saw this fabulous field.

In a sweet little twist of fate, the farm’s manager had come to check on the horses.  He brought them to us.  It was AH-may-ZING!

Another wrong turn on the way to our 2nd destination and this creek with this gorgeous light was right there.  Sigh…

When a distillery doesn’t work out totally, a winery is a great back up.

Chris and Lauren’s wedding at Medallion

There are several different types of photographers.  There are gearheads.  They get geeked about the toys we get to play with.  There are techies.  They get excited about how it all works.   Then, there are the emotional types.  You guessed it.  That’s my category.

It never escapes me that this a huge day in many people’s lives.  They’re counting on me to capture the memories.  I feel that pressure….  in a good way and I am truly humbled that I get to take pictures that generations of family will look at.  I am aware that long after I’m gone, the images live on.  It’s the only dose of immortality I’ll ever have or ever need.

That said.  This wedding was extra special for me.  I have known the groom’s mom, Mary Lynne, for many years.  I love her.  She’s always positive, always loving and she’s just an all around good person.  She has hugged me through some bad times and been lots of fun in good times.  I truly think a lot of her.   That made photographing her son’s wedding very special.  Then, I met Chris and Lauren.  And well…  things just kept getting better.

Happy…  I know.  I know.  It’s a word used to describe a LOT of weddings.  And yes.  It’s appropriate but honestly, if by the end of this blog post, your cheeks aren’t feeling the smiles, I’ll be surprised.
