Wedding Details at The Piggery at Anna Dean Farm

Since I became a wedding photographer more than five years ago, I've had a handful of clients who have requested that I keep (most of) their wedding photos private. This can be a little bit tricky because I obviously use my client's photos in my own portfolio to book more work.

While I obviously want to showcase beautiful weddings, I also understand that brides and grooms have personal or professional reasons for keeping photos private ... and they still deserve beautiful wedding photos! I'm lucky to be at the stage in my business where I can afford to give up a model release here and there and it not affect my bookings, but I'm not going to sugarcoat it: When I book a beautiful wedding with a beautiful couple who have hired amazing wedding vendors, it's so sad to give up that piece of the project!

Lucky for me, this bride and groom who were married last spring agreed to me sharing detail photos from their day, and I'm so, so glad I have the chance to show off their vision AND credit some talented vendors (Fair Rarity did the beautiful florals; Borrow Rentals provided the farmhouse tables, the furniture and other big reception details; and The Piggery at Anna Dean Farm lent the perfect reception venue).


Collected 2014 | Northeast Ohio Collaborative Wedding Shoot

Pink and Marigold Backyard WeddingNortheast Ohio is full of talented, creative, inspiring people. I'm so lucky to have the chance to regularly work with some of the best of them. And last month I had the chance to work with a whole slew of creative wedding professionals at a collaborative event called Collected.

My dear friends Mallory + Justin created Collected to give local vendors in this industry a chance to create for themselves. And also come together and get to know and inspire each other. It was so fun to be a part of Collected, and I'm so grateful to Mallory + Justin for inviting me!

The event was held at Mallory's parent's house (thanks, Bairs!) in Waynesburg, which was really the perfect setting. Talk about gorgeous property! Heather of Fair Rarity, Janelle of With Love and Whimsy and  Colleen of Borrow Rentals made the backyard look even more beautiful with this first setup ...

Ohio Farm Wedding For me, one of the best things about Collected was that I got to shoot a ton of film. I really do get giddy when I pull out my Mamiya, so that was inspiring in and of itself.
