Cincinnati Wedding Photographer:: shooting wedding photos with an iPhone. YES, AN iPHONE.

So, this one time, I went to Florida and helped photograph a wedding.
I was in charge of the first look, which I was MORE than PUMPED for.
I’m outside, hanging with the groom, testing my light before the bride arrives,
and THIS is the shot I get….
Um. That could be a problem.
You know, if that’s as bad as it was going to get, I would have been able to live with it.
However, it got A LOT WORSE. As in, I couldn’t see anything.
NOT A DARN THING.

BUT, I have amazing, incredible, best of the best friends.
And, while I’m having a meltdown, they are saying JUST BREATHE.

So I did. And then I borrowed an iPhone. And I shot the first look.

And THIS PICTURE.
This one below… THIS made it all ok.

I get SO hung up on technicalities. ALL. OF. THE. TIME.
I miss what’s important – THIS moment, where my favorite groom saw my favorite bride for the first time…
that’s what I was there to document for them. Be it by Canon or by Apple.

So, friends (and, of course, my man), thanks for keeping my head on straight.
I don’t know what I’d do with you and your patience, your understanding, and your cell phones. :)

  • it’s the only photo we have of Winnie with her aunt Sallie because addiction is an evil that doesn’t give up, it’s a villain that won’t quit.
some people would say that Sallie lost her fight, but we know she won the ultimate battle and is celebrating 2 years in Heaven today.
we grieve everyday. it’s been 2 years without her and it’s been 2 years of missing her bottomless joy. but we are certain that joy is all over her face as she’s dancing with Jesus this morning. 🖤 #celebratingsallie
  • Who is ready for fall? 🍁 (aaaand everyone raises their hands 🙋🏼‍♀️😆) I took down Winnie's birthday decorations yesterday and immediately replaced them with all things pumpkin in my house. 🎃🙌🏻

I'm back to work this fall, and I've got some fun things to look forward to. 🍂 I spent the summer building a downloadable PDF of my photography course, and I'm excited to have that available soon - sign up for my newsletter for early access and special pricing (link in my profile). 📷👏🏻
  • They say when you meet the love of your life, time stops, and that’s true. What they don’t tell you is that when it starts again, it moves extra fast to catch up. 🕰✨

We can’t believe that we’ve been living the best days of our lives for 2 years. Happy birthday to our girl, the most beautiful  and wonderful person I know. 🎈

  • I took the summer off from shooting - we have had so many fun things keeping us busy, and I wanted to keep my sanity (I don’t manage chaos well 🤪).
That being said, I’m officially getting back to work after Labor Day. My girl turns two in a week, so I’m ending my summer break with her birthday. 🎈
My fall mini sessions are happening in a little over a month, so if that’s something you’re interested in, let’s make it happen. (link is in my profile) 🍂
I haven’t been on Instagram for a few days (which shouldn’t really be noteworthy 😆), but there’s nothing new in my feed (thanks algorithm), so tell me what I’ve missed - what’s new with you?
  • photographs are how I will keep her little forever. 🖤 don’t settle for taking photos that are just “ok” - let’s chat about how you can bottle up time with your camera with images that you love. 📷 (link in my profile) #ohmywinnie
