jane & matt.

there really is nothing better than seeing two people who are just crazy about each other.

meet jane & matt…two such people.

we spent a lovely afternoon with them in cincinnati, ohio (what a FUN CITY!)

these two were just about two of the happiest people we’ve ever been around…can’t you tell they just adore one another? πŸ™‚

can’t wait until there big day. we have a feeling it’s going to be perfect.

here’s to jane, matt and LOVE!

we found some great alley’s and spots all along the way.

we also found this purple monster wall. nicely done, cincinnati.

FAVORITE shot of the day!

we ended in the fountain. fun, right?

moira k. lime jewelry line, the lookbook.


so, as i mentioned in the previous post, we had the wonderful opportunity to do some work with the SUPER talented jewelry designer, katie lime, and photograph some really beautiful pieces for her new look-book. her one-of-a-kind pieces are a mix of modern, with a twist ofΒ  classic and the just right amount of whimsy. on her site, she describes her pieces as “delicate. feminine. and refined.” i couldn’t agree more.

make sure you check out her site, her etsy shop and her FB page.

also make sure to check out the look-book that she put together with images. it’s a beauty.

thanks so much to you, katie for trusting us and letting us bring her jewelry to “life”. a big thank you as well to the models for being so wonderful.

maria & friends.

first of all…a big “CONGRATS! to the class of 2015!”

we were contacted by maria’s mom (the cutie on the far left) last fall…she had the wonderful idea to commission us to photograph maria and her college roommates for a graduation gift. are you kidding? that’s about the sweetest idea we’d heard. πŸ™‚

*i should also point out that i’ve know maria since she was about 6 or 7 years old. her sister, barb, was one of the first friends that i made when i moved to dayton, ohio and started college. i’ll forever be grateful for her friendship and the great memories that i made while she was my neighbor living next door to me. gosh, i loved my tiny little studio apt.

SO…fast forward a few years and you are now up to speed. oh wait, we also photographed maria’s senior pictures, so it’s safe to say she’s stuck with us photographing the major milestones in her life from here on out. πŸ™‚

we met these AMAZING, SMART, FUNNY, HAPPY and WONDERFUL ladies on the campus of the university of dayton just a few days before graduation. it was just about the loveliest of spring days, too. we had a great time getting to catch up with maria and getting to know these girls! we love this idea, the idea of being able to capture these girls as they all head off in different directions…some of them off to more school, some of them off to jobs, some traveling, and some of the craziness of life. how fun that they’ll be able to look back and this time with images.

we ended the session with them back at their cute little house.

congrats again you guys….thanks for being so fun.
