Introducing The Covenant Sessions

The Covenant Sessions - Photographs meant to celebrate the unique relationship of a committed marriage.

Love grows.  Love changes.  Love is easy.  Love is hard.  Love is worth it.

A little over nine years ago, Mindy and I made a promise. This promise was made between the two of us, but also between us and God. Even more than a promise, it was a covenant; a sacred bond that cannot be broken. It goes far deeper than the feelings we have for each other, which ebb and flow with the daily current of life. We made a commitment to stay with, support, and love each other through thick and thin, every day from here on out.

We take this commitment seriously, and believe this covenant is meant to be celebrated. Not just ours, but every marriage covenant. Committing yourself to one other person for the rest of your life is hard, but oh man, is it good. Celebrate your marriage. Show it off to the world. Cling to your spouse, make your relationship your priority. If you have kids, teach them how to love by showing them how you love. Give the world a reason to be hopeful.

We're excited to announce The Covenant Sessions, new series we're launching this year, to coincide with our TEN year anniversary. We'll be offering sessions on select dates, in select cities around the country throughout the year. This is where we'll be, and when:

Columbus, OH - Saturday, March 19 St. Louis, MO - Saturday, March 26 Cleveland, OH - Friday, April 1 Dayton, OH - Sunday, April 17 Tampa, FL - Sunday, May 22 Portland, OR - Sunday, June 19 Denver, CO - Wednesday, June 22 Cincinnati, OH - Saturday, July 30 Detroit, MI - Sunday, August 21 Chicago, IL - Monday, August 22 Austin, TX - Coming in the fall Nashville, TN - TBD Dayton, Cincinnati, and Columbus - Additional Dates TBD

The Covenant Sessions are our way of celebrating the marriage relationship that we value so much. We believe the stories of couples who are in it for the long haul are beautiful, and that they're worth sharing. Couples have photos taken to celebrate their engagement, and everyone has photos taken to remember their wedding, but too often people forget to give their relationship the credit deserves after the honeymoon is over and the real work begins. We love highlighting these milestones, and we think life after the wedding deserves it's own place in the spotlight.

Celebrate your marriage. Show it off to the world.

Shoot us an email for more information about booking a session on one of these dates. Availability is extremely limited.


Hannah + Seth // Maternity

There's something beautiful and amazing about a growing little life inside of you. I really enjoyed my pregnancy and sometimes even miss it (not planning on having any more for a while though!). I think that's what gets me excited about maternity shoots. I had the pleasure of capturing Hannah in her pregnancy beauty (isn't she cute?!) along with her husband Seth. Hannah is the sister of one of our recent brides, Becky. We spent the evening on Hannah's parents farm in New Carlisle, OH. It's such a beautiful place to shoot and turning into a favorite of ours.  We shot Becky & Jesse's engagement photos on the farm as well. The farm has such charm and rusticness, not to mention 2 of the coolest old trucks! Congrats Hannah & Seth!! I cannot wait for Naomi's arrival! She is one lucky gal with one amazing family!

Ashley + Bryan // Cincinnati Engagement Photography

Today's Friday, which means we're on the road to vacation! We're headed to the Outer Banks in North Carolina for a week, but we've got a few posts in the queue to keep you entertained. Meet Ashley + Bryan. They set up a darling little picnic at the spot where they got engaged in Devou Park in Covington, KY. I love these guys because they're so easy to talk to, I feel like we just get along. In fact, we ended our session with me telling Bryan that I was confident he could change the oil in his car himself, and I gave him a step by step walk through. Yes, believe it or not, even though I'm an artist and like to be creative, I actually do all of the work on my own car. I'm a man, man.

Anyway, back to the point. We really enjoyed spending some time getting to know Ashley + Bryan, and we can't wait for their wedding this December at the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati. You have NO idea how excited we are for that.
