jana brian . backyard wedding . ohio


I have a problem with favorites, it seems that I can’t stand to have just one… no make that they are all my favorites.  Whichever image, whatever couple, which ever wedding, I really am a girl in love (cheesy though that may sound..) and I think I’m going to just accept it and allow myself the luxury of really really enjoying the moment and what I do.  Brian and Jana’s wedding was a backyard wedding, planned by Crowning Celebrations and filled with love and faith and fun and all the little things that make Brian and Jana and their families so special!  You can see it of course in the images, which I think I’ll let speak for themselves… (just a note, the little cottage where we did portraits is adjacent  to Jana’s parents home.  It’s a historical cabin, preserved by private donations and open for public tours just really amazing)

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
