Jessica and Alex | Engaged!

You know those couples that you meet who you immediately know are perfect for one another? That's how Jessica and Alex are. The way their personalities complimented one another and the way they interacted, you could just tell that no matter what they do, they always have fun together. One of their favorite things to do is go for evening walks at Indian Mounds Reserve, to watch as the daylight fades into night. This is the same place where he asked her to be his girlfriend and then six months later, his wife. Their engagement story is absolutely amazing and hilarious, and I could try to retell it, but I don't think I could tell it quite the way Jessica does on her blog, so you should go read it and be ready to laugh and maybe even cry a's just that good.

The week prior to Jess and Alex's engagement session was a bitterly cold one, but somehow God had it worked out that the day of the session would be sunny and 60 degrees. Just like they had done so many times before, that evening we went for a walk at the Mounds. It was so beautiful! We walked the path along the creek, saw waterfalls, climbed on rocks, and shot until the sunlight was gone.

Jess and Alex, we are so excited to shoot your wedding in May and we have no doubt that God has awesome things in store for you two!

Jeremy & Amanda | Fun!

Happy December dear blog friends!

Wow, the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is definitely here! It's incredible how fast time flies by. It feels like just a few weeks ago Amanda and I were flying down to Florida for our honeymoon, and now, we're getting ready for Christmas! But this isn't just any old Christmas, it's our First Christmas. First Christmas as a married couple that is…it may seem like not that big of a deal, but for us, it's exciting! We got to put our first tree up, and buy our first tree topper, and put classy white lights all around the tree…there's even a couple presents under there as well!

Life is unceasingly busy and so on a recent evening, to take a break from the craziness, we decided to go for a walk at the Whetstone Park of Roses in Clintonville. Although we didn't get very far because we kept getting distracted by all these cool little things, it was relaxing and beautiful…a nice, however brief, getaway from the stresses of everyday life. I think we're going to have to plan more fun little excursions like this!

Check back soon to see some awesome images from Jessica and Alex's Cedarville Engagement Session!!!


Stephen and Kristin | Engaged!

Amanda and I love to see new places, so when Stephen and Kristin explained to us how special Miami University was to them and that they would like their engagement pictures taken there, we were ready to go. I had heard that the campus was beautiful, but man…with the fall leaves and the evening sun streaming through the trees, it was breathtaking.

We started out at Upham Hall, which is where Stephen and Kristin spend most of there time while in school, and it is also the location of the famous Miami Merger Arch. Tradition says, if you go there at midnight and kiss under the arch, you will get married. Well, Stephen and Kristin admitted that they had never made it there at midnight, but they did kiss under it at about ten o-clock one night…I think that's close enough haha.

The light was great, and the fact that Stephen and Kristin couldn't stop smiling and laughing made it so easy to shoot. The smiling was contagious too…I know my face was hurting by the end because of constant smiling! Once the sun started to go, we ended up just walking around on a mini tour of the campus, complete with stories of a haunted hall, where it is said shackles and straight jackets have been found in the attic and basement from when the building was used as an insane asylum. Hmmm…fun stuff haha.

Thank you guys so much for the tour and for hanging out with us afterward! We can't wait to celebrate your wedding next June!

I asked them to go to that moment right before you kiss and this is what I caught…wow!

This was their reaction to me asking them for a "serious" look…so funny.
