Cincinnati Documentary Wedding Photography
Congratulations to Kelsey + Lou! Their wedding day started off at the Hilton Netherland Plaza to get ready and then the Monastery for their reception. It was tough to choose sneak photos for these two because all of their photos were just stunning! Kelsey did not stop smiling and her style rocks! They worked in bits of NY (where they live) and incorporated lots of special moments with family and friends. I can’t wait to share the rest. Enjoy!
We stepped in Krohn Conservatory to escape the rain – it ended up being the perfect, romantic spot
Yes please… love Jimmy and Tiffany
Bubbles with sis to ease nerves is never a bad thing!
First look with the girls
First look with Dad and family
A note from Lou before the wedding
Wedding bands – hers and Grandma’s
Sometimes amazing things happen when you aren’t expecting it! We decided to head up to The Rookwood in Mt. Adams to escape the rain. Kelsey kicked off her shoes with her girls and enjoyed a drink. She never stopped smiling!! This girl is so beautiful inside and out.
They practiced their dance throughout the day and spun each other around to kick off the gorgeous evening
Toasts from siblings didn’t leave a dry seat in the house. Hearing about growing up looking up to these two was so heartfelt. Congrats to you both!!

Reception: The Monastery
Stepping into Laurel Court Mansion is like walking through a time capsule. You aren’t really prepared for what you will find inside the large stone castle tucked away in the trees-right in the middle of Cincinnati. From the second the day started until the moment the sun set there was something different about this wedding. It was – the laughter. All day Shannon and Dan were both surrounded by friends and family that were so so happy to support their marriage. I remember talking to Shannon a few years back and listening to the way she spoke about Dan. She knew. Right away, she knew that she would marry that man. I couldn’t be more pleased to share these photos or to have shared this day with such a special couple. There were moments of tears, toasts with loved ones near and far, and lots and lots of selfies. Congratulations, Shannon and Dan. I know that you will have many years of joy together!

Lauren + John’s absolutely stunning wedding was the perfect way to kick off this years wedding season. They got ready at one of Cincinnati’s classics – The Hilton Netherland. Then their beautiful ceremony at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral downtown and we concluded the evening in Ault Park. I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about how I want to progress my style, enjoy this season, and celebrate each and every bride. Being engaged myself this year I’ve had a lot of inspiration. I can’t wait to share this special year with each bride!! 2016 will be a good one. Enjoy!
