jane & matt. the wedding.

jane & matt.

you may remember these two from their rockin’ engagement session we did in a SUPER CUTE part of downtown cincinnati.

well, these two went and did it…they tied the knot!

they were married in an absolutely BREATHTAKING church (and you guys, we’ve been to italy and we’ve seen some BEAUTIFUL churches, but THIS church wins 1st place!) and they couldn’t asked for a more perfect day to celebrate!

jane has some pretty great friends and i got to spend a good amount of time with them beforehand while robbie hung with matt & his guys. seriously, they have some TOP NOTCH friends & family!

it was such a emotional day, and trust me when i say that when janes dad saw her for the first time there was not a dry eye in the house. i think robbie and i came away from the day thinking, “wow, those two, they are surrounded with so much love & support…how wonderful!”

a big thank you to EVERYONE who helped make their day one-of-a-kind and an even bigger thank you to jane & matt for being so very lovely…we wish you all the love and happiness, now & always!!

there are a bunch of images, so get comfy and enjoy!!


l. & r.

this portrait of jane is a new FAVORITE bridal portrait for sure.

they picked bellevue park for their portraits…how great that it overlooks the cincinnati skyline?!

we had a bit of time right before the reception started, and we loved the contrast of the flowers & colors from that of the city scape that we stole them off for a few minutes and grabbed a few fun images!

some of the tiny guests at the event! are you kidding with the cuteness?!?!


congrats again, mr. & mrs. you guys sure do know how to throw a FUN PARTY!!

this session has all the components of all the things we love…a past bride & groom who had an AMAZING wedding day…who now have two CUTE little boys…who also have a dog (duh, you know we LOVE doggies!)…a cute & quirky downtown…i mean, do i need to continue?!

these guys live in virginia, but were visiting family in ohio, so we made it work and got a session scheduled with them! big shout out to candice’s mom who lovingly gifted this session to them! ๐Ÿ™‚

we had so much fun catching up, laughing, and capturing the craziness that can be two littles, traveling with different schedules & routines and loving on their awesome dog, buck.

thanks so much you guys, we adore you, and we hope these images make you smile for years to come!

cheers! until next time!


l. & r. & homer

candice and her shoes. she wins for greatest shoes, she had BEAUTIFUL wedding day shoes, and these green ones, SO CUTE!

the next few ones of father & son crack us up! hilarious!

BUCK. what a dog. he & homer met too on this trip, they didn’t *love* eachother. homer was quite charming though and worked his magic on candice’s parents…there was some major belly rubs going down. ๐Ÿ™‚

her parents have such a BEAUTIFUL backyard, so we decided to head over to their house and grab a few images…they have a pond, swings, flowers galore, even grape vines…amazing.

l. & r.

he’s so cool. he also has about 15 pairs of sunglasses. see, i told you he’s cool.

we absolutely love when the “in between” moments happen. he was fixing his hair, laughing at something robbie or i said. these images are very much who he is. i adore them.

that smile!

the above and below images were some of the last of the session…and some of my favorite from the day!
