Emily and Kurt’s Winter Wedding!

When taking a winter wedding you really never know what kind of weather you are going to get. Although when talking with Emily, the one thing that she was hoping for, was a bit of snow. Well mother nature did not disappoint! As with all winter weddings you have to have a bride/groom that are well suited to bear the cold. Emily, Kurt and their wedding parties were definitely up for the challenge! I honestly can’t thank you all enough for freezing for a bit of time and making the best out of it! We seriously have the best clients and have so much fun creating memories for you all! Thank you again Emily and Kurt for giving us the opportunity of photographing your big day. I really hope that you enjoy the teasers as much as I do!

Kasey and Cory Country Engagement Session!

Lets just say that the fourth time, not the third is the charm. Or was it that it was a bit of birthday luck?! Either way I can’t thank Kasey and Cory enough, one for their patience and complete trust in me. Two for giving me two amazing subjects and 1 incredible scenery to work with. What a photographers dream to be able to have these kind of fall colors with a couple that “is up for anything”. Thank you again Kasey and Cory for giving me the opportunity and pleasure of photographing your engagement session and I can’t wait for you big day!

Beth and Will Engagement Session

This session was a ton of fun and stress all at the same time, the stress had nothing to do with Beth or Will. Quite the opposite to be honest. As you may well notice from recent blog posts, weather is always on a photographers mind the later months in the year. Also knowing Beth and Will were driving 4+ hours to Cincinnati specifically for this session, there was no rescheduling. As I was keeping an eye on the weather the days prior to it wasn’t looking very good, at the same time it wasn’t all bad news. Until the day before, with 100% chance of rain, tornado and flood watches. Sounds like a perfect day to shoot an outdoor engagement session! HA. After talking with Will, we decided to move the session up a couple of hours. One to ensure that we had light to shoot and two in hopes that we could get the session in before mother nature took over. As arriving to the location (secret location) the skies were a bit dark on the  edges of the city, although just overcast above us. So we set off, soon as I got my light setup and ready to shoot it starts to sprinkle… Trying not to get too discouraged, I looked up at Beth and Will and they were both smiling and ready to go. Will said “it’s just a sprinkle, we are good”, shortly followed by Beth saying “yeah, even it rains we will play in it!” So we started shooting, and I kid you not, the rain stopped seconds later! I am so happy that we were able to finish out shoot, it was an absolute blast! I couldn’t be happier to have such amazing clients like Beth and Will. Thank you two for being amazing and I really hope that you enjoy your engagement images, and I am really looking forward to your big day!

Holly and Jeremy Wedding Teasers

What an absolutely amazing day spent with incredible people. Like all couples planning their wedding day, Holly and Jeremy wanted to make their day memorable and special. Although not just for them but, their guests as well. Especially the Veterans and Service Members. After serving 4 years in the Navy, Holly was grateful and honored to be able have met some amazing people that she is able to call friends and wanted to pay a special tribute to them all. As they got to the reception she gave short memorable speech honoring them all with a round of applause from the crowd, thanking and honoring them. Followed by letting all the Veterans and Service Members dine before everyone, it was extremely heartfelt and amazing.

Jennifer and Ryan Wedding Teasers!

I always like asking my brides and grooms a simple question: If there is one thing that you don’t want to happen on your wedding day, what would it be? I get a lot of different responses, some funny some very serious. Jennifer took no time in answering this “no rain”. Anytime that I get this answer I would love to be able with 100% certainty that “I can make that happen..” We all know this isn’t the case, or I would be one rich man! With the inevitability of rain happening I started to worry a little bit. Although come saturday the skies weren’t exactly clear, but it wasn’t raining. It was simply amazing, just like Jennifer and Ryan. One could not simply ask for better clients, the reserved nature and happy go lucky attitudes are fantastic. It has been said over the years that people that work hard, play hard as well. Those words are the epitome of Jennifer and Ryan, when emailing with Jennifer about planning details, I was astonished of how much both of them are involved in. At the same time, happily watching them let loose on their wedding day. Thank you two so very much for giving us the honor of photographing your big day! I hope you enjoy these few teasers and more to come soon!IMG_6352IMG_6462IMG_6479IMG_6501IMG_6623IMG_6647IMG_6768IMG_6785IMG_6794IMG_6801IMG_6831IMG_7022IMG_7044

Trinity’s Senior Portrait teasers!

One thing that I can guarantee my clients is that every session/wedding is going to be an adventure! I am an extremely passionate person, and when I have my cameras in my hands I am like a little kid at Christmas. This was absolutely true for Trinity’s senior portrait session, and she and her mother Misty were 100% ready for that adventure. They were great always up for everything, including a dirty downtown alley and dodging traffic! Now mind you I always ask and give my clients/parents the discretion on if we shoot the Roebeling shot with said traffic dodging. We talk it over and have a great game plan going into it, always sticking to the plan for maximum safety. Misty and Trinity were great and I can’t be happier with the results. Thank you again for the opportunity and adventure hope you enjoy the teasers more to come soon!  IMG_8572IMG_8298IMG_8328IMG_8244IMG_8597

Cody + Katie Wedding Teasers!!

When I sat down with Katie and her mother, little over a week before the wedding. I asked her one of my favorite questions, to ask a bride before their wedding.. “What is the one thing that you don’t want to happen on your wedding day?” I ask this question for a few reasons, one I really want to know the things they fear about their wedding day. Therefore if there is a chance that I foresee, or can help stop something from happening I want to try. When I asked this question Katie had no thinking or pause in any sense. There was an absolute answer, “No Rain” she said…. Now I have heard this answer before, what bride wants it to rain on there big day, no one. Although with hurricanes Harvey and Irma decimating the south with loads of rain to come, I cringed and simply asked “anything else?”. Low and behold what an absolutelty wonderful day we received, and what a day it was. A photographer couldn’t have asked for a better bride and groom, Cody and Katie are fantastic. Laid back, easy going, at the same time well scheduled and prompt. Anytime a bride brings a 3-ring binder to a meeting I know that we are going to get along! Thank you Cody and Katie for allowing us to be a part of your big day, here are just a few teasers until the rest are finished! IMG_6846IMG_5866-2IMG_6062IMG_5975IMG_6128IMG_6139IMG_6224IMG_6982IMG_7277IMG_7288IMG_6908IMG_6928IMG_6966IMG_6972
