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.

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.

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. :)

  • last week, I mistakenly mentioned that Winnie was getting two teeth at once and it was pretty much the worst thing ever... well, turns out she was getting FOUR. FOUR TEETH. (baby Levi feels my pain here 🤦‍♂️😩) to state the obvious, it’s been a rough week for my girl. 😞 it’s also been a bit of a lesson in priorities for me. I haven’t had much time to sit at my desk, but I’m being reminded of what is my biggest role and most important job - being a momma. ♥️ however, I’m still thankful for naptime and a small break from the madness. 😴😅 using today’s nap to get this collection finished and on my blog - crossing my fingers I will share it with you tomorrow!🤞🏻🎉
  • so many things are happening, some that are hard to understand, but one thing I know for certain is this: there is no love like a momma’s. ♥️
  • we’re working with a serious case of the Mondays over here 🤦🏼‍♀️ I’ve got a no-napping-toddler on my hands who also happens to be cutting her two canine teeth simultaneously, so that’s been fun. 😩🙅🏼‍♀️ thankfully, this family session is on my blog, and it is so much fun, I can almost pretend I’m not losing my mind. 😜😂 leave them some love in the comments because they really are the best ♥️ oh and also tell me HOW TO SURVIVE THIS DAY THANKS. #teethingisayouknowwhat

I’m excited to share this birth story on my blog tomorrow... usually overflowing with words, it’s been odd to be left so speechless by these three beautiful souls. I’m just so thankful.
