shereen & matt.

meet shereen & matt. we *kind of* love these two. we traveled down to louisville, ky. for their session and ended up shooting at a wonderfully fun garden museum-thingy. we can’t wait for the wedding next year, which is guaranteed to be even more amazing.  these two also have great laughs and smiles, which is always fun to photograph.

BIG hugs you guys…here’s to you.

Bobbi - Such a cute session! The one of their legs on the stairs is perfect. But my favorite are the hula hoops. Oh, and holy stylish batman! SO many great outfits! 😀 High fives Lindsay & Brett!


i love this girl like she’s my sister. i’ve known morganne since she was a little girl, and her along with her family, ARE like family to us. (i won’t lie, i’m getting a little teary right now.) we photographed these images over a two day span on the property where she grew up in southern ohio. we had the greatest time wandering around, laughing and talking and making new memories. she’s grown up into such a beautiful spirit and i can’t wait to see where the next journey in her life takes her.

kathy - Love these poses plus about 80 more! trying to choose my favorites but I am struggling! Miss you guys and wish you could be here to help me through making some tough decisions. oh what to choose, what size, how many, black and white or color. I am honestly lost!
Could not have asked for a better weekend or a more talented photographer! Love you and once again THANK YOU for making this so special and memorable.

alison & brian. the wedding.

alison and brian are two very special people to us. for those of you who know robbie and i personally, you understand how important our friends are.  when they asked us to document their day we were thrilled (a little nervous, but so wonderfully excited). they were married at an amazing location in missouri, with details (that were mostly MADE, yes, MADE by alison herself!) on a beautiful fall day, with all of their friends and family watching.

we love you guys, wish you nothing but happiness & laughter, and can’t wait to make new memories with you.

Alison & Brian - The reason you and Robbie were the first phone call we made after getting engaged is obvious! Your images display not only your technical expertise, but more importantly, your profound ability to capture the heart and soul of each moment and detail of this wonderful day in time. Thank you for allowing us to journey through the emotion, love and laughter of our wedding day over and over again in living color (and black & white).

All of our love & gratitude,
Alison & Brian

Alison - Lauren & Robbie- If we had to choose again, it would still be openField- over, and over, and over again. Not only was your creative, quirky, emotion-provoking photography out of this world, but you truly made our day so special just by being a part of it. Thank you to the moon and back. – Brian, Alison & Kota
