This sweet couple’s wedding was ten years in the making.  Libby and Carlton met in high school and never looked back.  They moved to Richmond, and just as they both accepted jobs back here in Cincinnati and were ready to move home again, Carlton popped the question on a short, weekend getaway in horse country.

Yay for wedding season! We kicked things off at Neltner’s Farm over the weekend with Leah and Joe, and it couldn’t have been more beautiful. Two seconds around Leah and Joe and you can immediately see how much love and gratitude they have for each other.  Each has such a sweet way of looking at the […]

I’ve been thinking about this blog post for, admittedly, several years. This year holds a lot of special things for us. What most people don’t know is that the year I got married was the same year I picked up a camera and started both of my businesses (this one and Kaleigh Turner Creative). You […]

I love New Year’s Eve. It’s one of my favorite holidays…there’s something so amazing about the ability to celebrate the year behind you and look forward to a whole new year ahead all in the same night.  Ringing in the new year with Alesa & Danny was so special and so incredibly fun…I can’t imagine […]

Cat and Zach have had many date and wine nights here in Cincinnati, traveled the globe together, got engaged in Paris, and got married in Mexico.  Of everything I’ve loved about getting to know them, though (besides how sweet […]

Roseanna and I have been friends for about 13 years…and I always say she was a monumental reason my husband and I went on our first date (they were friends in high school and she urged me to go out with him).  I trusted her when she said he was a good guy, and obviously […]

They met through their high school tennis coach but didn’t actually connect until a few years later. Stacey was in graduate school in Tulsa, and her weekends home were always jam-packed, but a Facebook message turned into lunch over Indian food, then, a few Skype dates later, they were official.  A few years later, Stacey […]

You’ll recognize this sweet couple from a wedding I shot in June, as they were a bridesmaid and groomsman in Ashley & Jordan’s Denver wedding.  Jarod is Ashley’s brother, so this family holds a special place in my heart. When Megan reached out to me to photograph their wedding, I was beyond thrilled! From the […]

They went to the same college, they were both even in greek life and had tons of mutual friends, but Grace and Alex had never met.  Instead, serendipitously, they met online – the universe knew before they did.  They had their first date at the Newport Aquarium, and during her maid of honor speech, one […]

They met on campus.  After several months of running into each other, then having class together, then studying together, Sean asked Sarah to the Navy ball – they were officially a couple.  Fast forward a few years, and Sarah found Sean down on one knee in front of the picturesque mountains of Park City, Utah!
