Melanie and Brad | Ft. Thomas, KY

I had so much fun as Melanie and Brad showed me around the farm where they met and then the town where they live. I can’t believe I have never been to downtown Ft. Thomas, what an amazing place for pictures! The light was gorgeous, the humidity was high and love was in the air. These two had a lot of fun with each other and I had a lot of fun with them. I can’t wait for their wedding at Krippendorf Lodge later this fall. Melanie and Brad, thanks for being such great hosts and for looking great even in the extreme heat. Here are some of my favorites from your day:

Alisha and Mike | Hyde Park/Eden Park

Alisha and Mike are a great couple. They showed themselves to be troopers too when they braved the heat for our Hyde Park and Mt. Adams engagement session on Tuesday night. Even though it was hot, the light was gorgeous and it made for some fun picture times. As we were walking I asked them both the question, “So what draws you together?” Mike’s immediately said, “God.” and then followed with, “Everything just fit, it was meant to be.” How incredible of an answer is that? Then Alisha quickly said, “His eyes.” Again, great answer:) There is just an ease about their relationship, nothing feels forced. Mike’s right, they just fit. Alisha and Mike, thanks for an incredible evening of conversation and pictures. You guys are amazing and I am so excited for you as you fly off to Cancun next February for your amazing destination wedding! Here are some of my favorites from our time together:

Betsy & Will | Historic Burlington, KY

Main St. & Boone County Fairgrounds | Burlington, Ky. Betsy and Will remind me of home.  They both are from Kentucky (I was born and raised in Lexington) and Will actually went to high school about 20 minutes from my house.  I’m sure everyone feels this way but there is something refreshing about hanging out with people who get where your from…the slower pace, the horse farms, the people.  It’s just a little different just a few hours south. They were so great to walk around with as we explored Old Burlington.  We chatted about high school football, law school, how they met, how he asked her to marry him and plenty of other things.  They couldn’t be more made for each other.  I love the way he makes her laugh and the way she looks at him when he’s not looking:) I also loved their engagement session because everything came together so perfectly:  Betsy got that amazing dress at Anthropolgie, some killer boots (none of these pictures do them justice, but trust me they were killer!), her flawless make-up was done by Nancy Dawson at Brideface and the gorgeous weather/light was provided by a crazy warm day for late November in Cincinnati.  Needless to say, our day was perfect. Here are some of my favorite images from our time together:

Jessica & Adam | Northside Cincinnati

Northside | Cincinnati, OH I know it sounds very cliche but I’ll say it anyways…I am blessed to be able to do something that I love!  Adam and Jessica are the kind of couple that make you want to go out and shoot every day.  They are funny, fun to be around and sincerely love each other to the utmost.  I am an incredibly lucky person. This was the first engagement session I have shot where we started shooting before the sun was completely up.  I am not much of a morning person, but the pictures were totally worth it!  Being able to hang out and walk around Northside before it was totally awake made all the difference in the world.  And needless to say, the light was INCREDIBLE. These two made my job super easy because all they did was laugh and have a good time together.  All I had to do was push the button at the right time:)  And I have to admit that the “ninja assassin” picture is one of my favorites of all time.  It looks as if Adam jumped out of the trees to attack her, but in reality he did that from a standing jump right next to her…it looks awesome! Thanks for a really great morning guys!  Here are some of my favorites from our session:
