Choctaw Lake Engagement Photos | Columbus Engagement Photographer

Engagement sessions at Lake Choctaw?! — UM YES PLEASE. If you don’t know where that is, it’s about 20 minutes from Columbus, Ohio.

OKAY, SO HOLY MOLY — where do I start? These two babes aka Brittany and Dylan, took me to their favorite Mexican restaurant and then their lot, where their future home will be built! UGH THE FEELZ. They danced and ran around on their empty lot. They then laid down, and we took THE CUTEST shots of them giggling and Dylan picking on Brittany. Afterwards, we headed to Choctaw Lake for some g o r g e o u s sunset photos. Their original photo day was the day after the Dayton, Ohio tornados and with the weather and Dylan’s landscaping company working overtime with all the uprooted trees, we decided to reschedule.


I normally play music on my Bluetooth speaker during seasons, but we joked and talked so much I forget to play it! These two were so about each other and had such a goofy and close bond.

These two were so goofy and so fun and I can’t wait until their wedding day this November. SO STOKED!

I believe in the magic of capturing moments as they are, not just as they should be. My style is a blend of traditional portraits and documentary. I thrive when given creative control and trust, allowing me to blend into your celebration, capturing the actual spontaneous and genuine moments.

Photographer, artist, mother, occasional painter, inspired by music videos, film, and nostalgia.

At a young age, I was engrossed with storytelling. Writing short stories on a thrifted type writer. Filming music videos to my favorite songs. A school project wasn’t just papier-mâché, it was a production with costumes, music, and visual effects. Now, with photographs, documenting a wedding day of all its moments of little touches, side glances, stolen kisses, hidden tears, and belly laughs. I can’t but help but bottle up the day, transport a memory from a feeling to something you can hold onto.
