Abby + Michael | Married

Cleveland has always been one of our favorite places in Ohio to photograph, especially when we get to work with some warmhearted, endearing human beings, like Abby and Michael! They really made the whole experience worth the trip. Congrats to Abby and Michael for a day filled with nervousness, love, emotions, laughter, and friendship! We can’t wait to see what the future brings for the two of you. You guys are quite the ‘perfect pear’!

MEANT TO BEE | Han and Quyen’s Love Story

MEANT TO BEE movie poster


When we first met with Han, Quyen, and their 7-month-old-daughter Allison about a month ago for our consultation, they explained that they wanted us to create a cute and quirky film to tell their love story and premiere it during their wedding reception.

In the short amount of time we’ve spent with the three of them, we really got to see them as a family – and it was such a bonding experience. They even treated us like one of their family members by constantly feeding us, taking us out to dinners, and just allowing us to be a part of their life. They were so sincere, generous, and downright adorable – which is why we can’t wait to share this film with the world!

Thanks to Evie and her wonderful voice for allowing Allison to come to life in this film!
Thanks to Moshi Restaurant for their unbelievable hospitality and for allowing us to film in their restaurant.

Diana + Kyle | Coming Soon

Being able to document all of the emotions and merriment that occurred on the day of Diana and Kyle’s wedding was almost too much excitement for one human being to handle. The day couldn’t have been more perfectly sublime or majestic!

Here’s a look into their wedding trailer, which was filmed in their home town of Maria Stein, Ohio. We hope you all enjoy!

Hong + Servet | A Surprise Wedding Film Premiere

Someone said it best at Hong and Servet’s wedding that they are the type of friends who have the ability to bring people together. And last night was a great example of that. Being able to pull off this surprise for Hong and Servet was no easy task, but thanks to the help from their amazing friends and family we successfully turned the evening into an unforgettable night!

*Backstory about the surprise: Hong and Servet thought they were going to witness a proposal from a very close friend of theirs. What they didn’t realize after entering the room was that there was no proposal and that the surprise was, in fact, for them. You can see  in the first image that Hong (as she enters the room) is  signaling for everyone  in the room to shush, thinking that we were all a part of the ‘surprise proposal’. Watch the video below to see their reactions =)

Make Moments Happen

Here’s an idea for the workaholic couples (or couples in general): find a few days to get out of town together (make sure to bring your camera along); drive on unfamiliar roads until you discover a scenic location; spend the entire day exploring, photographing, and discovering why moments together are so significant to have in a relationship. Because let’s face it, there’s not enough hours in the day, and sometimes we forget to spend a little time away from our routined lives to remind ourselves that there’s a whole other life outside of work to be had – like one that involves more cuddling, more milkshakes, and more opportunities to be inspired.


Now, these aren’t our official engagement photos – I say that because we hired an amazing photographer to handle those for us. These are simply photos of us that we decided to capture during our excursions together. And yes, attempting to  photograph your own images requires a lot of trial and error. Aside from that, the time spent together and the places we discovered are some of my favorite memories that I will forever cherish. All the silly and intimate moments we shared were tiny…..tiny…….tiny reminders of why I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with her. So spend a little time away with each other and I promise by the time you get back, you’ll be more inspired, more motivated, and more in love.

Servet + Hong | Coming Soon

When Servet called us during the stages of their wedding planning to tell us that he was going to surprise Hong by flying in singer/songwriter, Juan Paolo into Columbus to perform (a song he wrote for Servet and Hong) during their first dance, we knew immediately that this guy was going to be full of surprises come their wedding day. And let me tell you…he did not disappoint! Whether it was the surprise breakfast and personal letters he had delivered to Hong’s hotel room, or the revealing of their engagement film played before their grand entrance, or even the show-stopping performance on the dance floor him and his groomsmen put together, we all knew that this was going to be the wedding of the century!

Congrats to one hell of a wedding, guys!

Thanks to the amazing vendors who kept us sane and inspired throughout the day! We seriously, from the bottom of our hearts, could not have asked for a better group of people to work with.

Coordinators: Pink Peony Planning and Design
Song: To Be With You – Written and Performed by Juan Paolo (for Servet and Hong)
