These two!!!!!!   Michaella contacted me a while back about possibly photographing her wedding next year.  Shortly after that we were able to meet along with Alex and Michaella’s mom.   We chatted about photography details and plans for their day.  I was super excited when her mom called me and said they had decided I would be their wedding photographer.

These two are so sweet and completely comfortable with each other!  This first image on the left is only about 3 minutes into starting our session!  It sometimes takes 20-40 minutes for this natural and completely relaxed smiles to emerge from couples or families.  I knew we were in for an amazing engagement session.   BONUS….all of these photos were taken on Michaella’s family property which is also where the wedding ceremony will take place.   I cannot wait!  Alex and Michaella thank you so much for such a fabulous session!  Can’t wait for your special day next summer!!!!


Kelli is my “cousin in law” and I’ve known her for quite a few years now.   She started bringing Donny to various extended Sommer family events and I thought he was the perfect match for her.  I had been hoping for some time now that Donny would ask Kelli to marry him.  I was also secretly hoping Kelli would ask me to do their engagement session and so excited when she did.  🙂  We didn’t think we’d be able to squeeze it in so soon…but luckily I had an opening and I was even able to drive to Chestnut Ridge Columbus for the session.   I’m not always available to travel for sessions and sometimes my out of town clients have to make the drive to Dayton.  When Kelli told me their engagement story of how they walk and hike together here multiple times a week AND this is where Donny proposed…I knew it was the perfect setting for their session.
