Tyler + Bailey | The Buckeye Barn Fall Wedding | Piqua, Ohio Wedding Ohio


I am here for this Buckeye Barn wedding. Seriously, the best day ever. Tyler and Bailey got married at The Buckeye Barn. Bailey’s mom and aunt did an amazing freaking job decorating the venue. She had touches of blue as well as succulents at the head table. Bailey and I were the most excited for the bouquet from The Flower Man. YOU GUYS. Wait until you guys see it. Bailey’s mom and dad also owns The Coffee Caboose here in Vandalia, Ohio and we had lattes from the time we got there and ALL NIGHT LONG. After 10 hours of shooting it was awesome to grab a latter for the 40 minute drive home. Such a genius idea. I got to briefly meet Caralee from Sweetly Pinned an awesome local HAMU artist. If you are looking for a photo booth, 321 Giggles and Grins had AMAZING people working the booth and allowed my videographer and I too partake too. 

Vendors aside, Tyler and Bailey’s wedding was filled with so much love and focus on their union. They are seriously the sweetest couple ever. Last month I got super sick and they personally dropped it off at my house. Who does that? MY COUPLES DO. Their first look was an incredible experience that I still am baffled I got to be a part of. Tyler insisted during my detail shots that I grab a flight of their home-brew beer, Bailey made sure I had a donut and took home as many as I wanted, and Tyler made sure my videographer, Will, and I had plenty to eat and a good table. I seriously can’t believe this is my job and my clients have turned into amazing friends. 

I have another wedding to blog at The Buckeye Barn. So stoked to share that one too!

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.
