What I Learned From My Sister’s Wedding Photographer

Columbus Engagement Photographer Let me just say that I love shooting in new locations! Don’t get me wrong, I love a park just as much as the next guy, but shooting somewhere new is such a refreshing change once in a while! Brent proposed to Laura at Brookside Golf and Country Club (the 15th hole […]

Brookside Country Club Engagement

Columbus Wedding Photographer Andrew and Taylor have definitely stolen my heart! I actually only met them three days before the wedding!

Columbus Museum of Art Engagement Session

I’ve been helping my sister plan her wedding, and it’s been quite the experience! Wedding planning is something I did over 10 years ago, so it almost feels like the first time again. Of course, in those ten years, wedding trends have changed. But even more than that, I feel like the experience of planning […]

What it’s Like on the Other Side
