There is a whirlwind of planning and busyness leading up to the day, but engagement sessions give you a chance to slow down for a bit and focus on what led you here: the two of you.

"What made Kaleigh stand out is her demeanor - she made the day fun, held my hand in a panicked moment, & confidently took charge of group photos. The pictures are gorgeous, timeless, & classic, and she captured the feeling of the day."

Rachel & Brandon

"Hands down I would put Kaleigh in the top best of the best in the country. I found that every vendor looked to her for guidance, timelines & much more. Do not book anyone else if you value perfect, elegant, & exquisite wedding photos. Worth every penny.

Taylor & Zach

"Kaleigh is absolutely amazing. Not only does she take the most beautiful pictures she is also the long lost best friend you never knew you needed and helps without anyone asking. Kaleigh is caring, generous and professional. Our pictures are stunning!" 

anna-marie & joe

"Kaleigh isn’t just a photographer - she directed people, fixed anything we wouldn’t have noticed, and was the one to keep us on schedule! She shot my brother’s wedding a few months later and is basically a part of the family!"

Ashley & Jordan

"From calming nerves to taking out my veil when it stuck, Kaleigh was always to the rescue - she kept us calm through it all. So thankful I have photos where I don't see the busyness of the day, but the moments where I was thrilled to be marrying my groom!"

Kirstie & Steven

"Kaleigh is AMAZING!! I love my pictures, but perhaps even more importantly, I loved working with Kaleigh. You can't go back and relive your wedding day, so having pictures that perfectly captured all our amazing moments is worth more than I can ever say!!"

Sarah & James

"When showing my photos to people, I had a friend ask me why I was showing her a magazine photo - Kaleigh is that good! Of all my vendors I used for our wedding, Kaleigh was my absolute favorite! She's super sweet and makes you feel totally comfortable!"

Valentines Day, 2011. Olivia and Jake were juniors in high school and that was their first date. Jake had moved back to Ohio after living in Florida for a while, and he and Olivia have been inseparable ever since. They’ve been through the rest of high school, undergrad at Ohio State, dental school for Jake and the audiology program for Olivia, a trip through Europe, and planning a wedding together, and now they get to start on their next great adventure – marriage. They said their vows at the Holy Cross Immaculata in Mt. Adams, and then had a blast at their Monastery Event Center reception!

Taylor has a way of making you feel like you’ve been friends your whole life when you’ve only just met, and Zach has a quiet way of soaking in your conversation in order to give thoughtful answers - both of them listening to and really loving the people around them. Even their photographer.  What I love the most, however, is their deep love and devotion for not only their family and friends, but for each other.  So much loving laughter, and a few happy tears (admittedly from myself too), filled their wedding day to the brim.

Photographing their wedding at Unico 2087 Hotel and Resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico was like dream. Catherine and Zach have impeccable taste, and treating their guests to a good time while there was important to them. The picturesque, tropical landscape served as the relaxing spot for their 60-some guests, and not only was the resort absolutely perfect, I was treated like family. Their family and friends were so welcoming and loving, and the day of the wedding came and went like a breeze. It was a sweet, emotion-filled day with tears from everyone and it was the perfect day!

Amy and Jeff are two of the sweetest, kindest people I’ve ever met. So loving and attentive towards each other, they have a way of looking at each other and making you feel like they are the only two in the room. They were married at St. Aloysius Chapel and had a beautiful reception at Cincinnati Art Museum filled to the brim with people they love from all over the world – including family all the way from China. It was an absolute honor to photograph their wedding!

This sweet couple’s wedding was ten years in the making. Libby and Carlton met in high school and never looked back. Libby oozes style from her very core, so I knew this wedding was going to be gorgeous, and I’m so glad I was right. Everything was perfect, and Elisa of Elegant Events by Elisa made sure every detail was accounted for. The French House at French Park was the perfect backdrop to their perfect day, and even a little popup thunderstorm wouldn’t damper their evening.

Rachel & Brandon met in high school. It was the days before Facebook, so as various social media platforms came and went (AIM, anyone!?), they kept in touch over the years. They finally made it official years later as Rachel was finishing college, and after 7 years together a series of special events kept leading Rachel to believe Brandon was going to propose (including a two week trip to Europe and a beautiful stroll through Central Park). Instead, a few weeks later, at dinner overlooking Central Park, Brandon popped the question. Rachel later found out that he had the ring in Europe and the day they went strolling in Central Park, but Brandon wanted the perfect moment!

With a mix of photojournalism and editorial styles, I aim to provide you with wedding imagery that is not only timeless, graceful, and genuine, but also gives you memories of a day so special in your heart that years from now, when looking back on them, they still give you the same rush of emotions you felt on your wedding day.

My main priority is your experience before, during, and long after the day is over. For you to be able to truly enjoy your wedding day knowing you're being taken care of is invaluable.
