janelle & jeff {love}

We traveled to Indianapolis to photograph these two lovebirds a few weeks back. We loved that they chose a location for their session that was very personal to them. You see, on their first date they went kayaking and were caught in a terrible storm while out on the water. Janelle said that she thinks it was a good thing, because all inhibitions were lost, and they really had to work together to get through the situation. They’ve been together ever since, and will say their “i-dos” this fall in front of family and friends! We couldn’t be more thrilled for them!!

Janelle - YUP in love!!!!!!! It is hilarious that you got a picture of me reaching back to Jeff. I honestly didn’t think you were shooting at that moment =) After we left that night I told Jeff I didn’t know if I could wait for them to be put on the blog. THEY WERE COMPLETELY WORTH THE WAIT! You two are awesome!

Rachel B. - These are so very sweet! I also especially like the ones at sunset. They are so classic! That one where they are leaning toward each other in the kayaks with the sun on the water behind them….gorgeous and needs to be a huge canvas.

janelle & jeff {wedding} | studio3z photography :: Cincinnati Wedding Photographers :: Destination Wedding Photographers - [...] Janelle and Jeff were married on a beautiful day in Indianapolis, IN. One element that stood out about their day was their first look & gift exchange. It was so very precious. But then there were the balloons that matched the girls shoe colors, and the surprise Michael Jackson dance by Janelle too. Let’s just say, their wedding was extremely heartwarming and TONS of fun!! We felt incredibly honored to be a part. [...]

holly & helios {love}

You know the way the sky looks after a Spring storm? Vibrant blue skies roll in, the wet ground shines, and the air smells fresh and crisp.  It was POURING rain all morning and afternoon the day we were to do Holly and Helios’s engagement photos.  As we all watched the weather, we hoped the rain would stop for our session…..Just before we met it all cleared up to turn into a GORGEOUS evening!

Holly and Helios are so sweet and kind….They share a very tender and sincere love.

They brought along their dog Cody, and together (along with the help of Holly’s sister) we walked around and captured a little piece of who they are right now.

Helios, I love your expressions SO MUCH. Holly, you looked amazing.

Less than 6 wks!

See you there. ;)

christine & joe

They are incredibly sweet and madly in love.

Christine and Joe will say their “I-Dos” this summer in a gorgeous nature preserve surrounded by their close family and friends; the perfect intimate gathering for these two. We decided to have their engagement session in the unique little town that they call home, Yellow Springs. Brett and I just ADORE Yellow Springs and it’s super quirky, eccentric, hippie vibe.  The streets are lined with interesting people, little shops, cafes, and all within walking distance to some magnificent natural wonders.  We are thrilled for their wedding which will be held there in 3 months!!

mom - Very nice!…..

Christine and Joe - Thanks Jess and Brett for a great time! We had so much fun walking around town and hiking Glen Helen. We love the photos and cannot wait for you to capture our special day!

christine & joe {wedding} | studio3z photography :: Cincinnati Wedding Photographers :: Destination Wedding Photographers - [...] Christine and Joe had a small intimate wedding with a homemade/nature theme and feel. In other words, our dream type of wedding. Brett and I were giddy all day. From the first look that sent us hiking (Christine in her wedding dress) through the woods, to the gorgeous historic home in the Glen Helen Nature Preserve for the ceremony and reception….we just couldn’t get enough. These two were just awesome, and they put such thought and detail into their special day. [...]

a fond farewell to 2010….

What a year it has been….we had a great 2010!

I look at my life at this point and compare it to last year, and I honestly feel like a new person. This past year has been such a reflective and introspective one for me; a time of change- of reevaluation. In my constant search for BALANCE, I’m learning to view things with new eyes. I see growth- in my personal life, in our family, in our business. But I still see so many more goals that I want to accomplish…..(but much more on that later).

This morning we enjoyed a great breakfast as a family. We read the bible, and then Priya and I did some knitting. I also spent some time looking back at our year in photo sessions. Quickly, I grabbed a sampling from each shoot of 2010- minus a couple weddings that are still in the works….

Thank you to all the wonderful people that invited us into your lives for a moment. Each of you in turn gave something to us, and we truly feel honored to have documented bits and pieces of who you are.
