Just looking at this suite reminds me of Cynthia and Paul, and how much joy they brought to each other - and to me, too! They knew right away they loved hydrangeas and wanted to incorporate their favorite flower into the invites. Combined with their lighthearted nature and excitement for their PARTY, we made a suite that was modern and sophisticated, but with a fun twist.
This invite thing, it’s ALL about you. And I love infusing your personality into each little paper detail 💌✨

I am an Enneagram 2w1.
For those of you who think I am speaking a foreign language... the enneagram is a personality test that is supposed to help us understand ourselves AND understand each other. It's real big these days ;)
My type is called the "servant." I love to serve and help people, and my wing one makes me a bit of a perfectionist (sometimes to a fault). I like when people notice that I am helping and I like to be recognized for it... just being real!
But I want to talk about a different side of the enneagram that someone mentioned to me the other day. I was randomly talking about enneagram numbers and they said, "People who do the enneagram want people to understand them but they don't want to understand other people and they want everyone to be their number."
At first I was a little defensive - UM noooooo! I know lots of enneagram fans who don't do this!! But then I really started to think about it and check myself. I kind of do that! Honestly, my biggest fault is being frustrated that I am the only one helping, I want other people go join in and help me cook or help me clean, when honestly it's not their personality! And that's fine! And let's be honest - we love to talk about our own number and how people can better understand us - but when was the last time I researched another person's number to try and understand them better?
SO - I want to challenge you. Let's break this stereotype!!
Comment below with the following:
1. tell me your number, because I want to know!
2. tag a friend and talk about their number! What about their personality do you love?!
Today on our way out of work, Aaron said something about his "ride" (his car) and I said something back in a weird voice about how cool he was... and then he said, "Babe, I love how un-cool you are..." I'm just really unsure how to take that comment... compliment?? 😂😂😂 Apparently when I try to be cool, it comes off as quirky.🤷🏼♀️ Please tell me I'm not alone in this... 😂

These two ran around Columbus with me tonight and it was freezing but perfect! The weather couldn’t have been any better! •
Shelby and Brandon lived in the same town, went to the same undergrad and never met! Now here they are engaged and have the cutest doggie, Mellie! •
I’m not sure if you guys expected anything different than a coffee shop shoot but when your couple loves coffee as much as you and they have cute mugs, you have to find a hip place to take pictures!!
Who is excited it is the weekend!?!
It’s a pop the champagne kind of day because Friday is here and I have a Saturday off 🙌
What are your plans for this weekend? I would love to hear!! A few weeks ago, at my Film Photography Intensive, I talked about photographing movement on film! When it comes to film and movement, it takes a lot of practice and patience! I was so excited for this shot! I got the champagne ready and taught my attendees how I would photograph this moment (aperture at 4.0 to make sure it was in focus). Once the champagne was popped, I snapped a couple of images, not knowing if I caught the perfect moment!
When the film scans came in, I was so excited to see this image and how it turned out! Even though I’ve done film photography for 6 years, I still sometimes get anxious waiting to see if certain shots turned out!
If you’re learning film right now, give yourself grace while learning! With practice, education and time you will keep getting more confident in shooting film! And know, even 6 years later, I still sometimes get nervous to see if my scans turned okay okay😉
Lisa has one of the most stunning but still simple set of rings I've ever seen and I'm seriously in love with the two tones of precious metals together. So gorgeous and so unique.

Making new memories with your #bridesmaids on your big day is certainly of importance!
You can ensure that you will if you host 💒 your #wedding here at Darby House: https://www.darbyhouse.com/ .
As soon as you’re engaged, everyone’s asking “So when’s the Big Day?” Choosing your wedding date might seem like putting the pieces of a puzzle together. To help narrow the 365 days (puzzle pieces) down, a good start is to choose the season, then the day of the week, moving onto looking at a date number that may have a special meaning. Next you begin searching for your perfect venue to ask of their availability.
We love hosting ‘The Big Day’! Contact us to check our 2020 date availability!
Bridal party appreciation ❗️I had so much fun working with all these sweet girls for Madi’s wedding. And just look at that gorgeous bride! 😍 Side note, what are the odds that they all had such perfect brows?! Ugh. 💕 📷 @melissaannephoto

Hey it’s Friday! Thought I’d hop on here and say hello! 👋🏻 I have no shoots today (or this weekend actually) and just one more week left of my busy season! Wow, this year as really flown by. While I really love Christmas and can’t wait for it, I do love the month of November and the idea of slowing down and thinking about all the things we are thankful for. I am so thankful for this business (my dream job) and all the wonderful clients that I get to serve. So many of you are repeat clients or referrals and you truly feel like family to me. So thank you for choosing me to capture your special moments. I am thankful for you. Have a great weekend! #thankful#kismetvisuals photo creds @reneekristinephoto studio @zuriestudio

Two weeks ago today, they were about to head out for a date night, when Benji surprised Jenna by proposing on their front porch! And then we shot some "just engaged" pictures in their neighborhood just before it turned dark. Just blogged some of my favs! Link in profile.

Another week zipped by and we’re wrapping up the next couple of weeks with one last wedding and a couple more portrait sessions. Yesterday, I told Brittney, our amazing assistant, that once we finally get used to the chaos that is busy season, it slowly melts away. We’re so incredibly thankful for you being a part of our 2019. ❤️ I’ll probably say that 5 more times before the year is up, because it’s true! 💕
These two are still enjoying their wonderful honeymoon in Cancun but my typical honeymoon envy is at bay because Matt and I just flew the coop, left the girls with Grandma and are on our way to Nashville! Excited to spend the weekend with my love and some new and old friends 💛
Some fall magic from yesterday's wedding 🍁🍂 congrats to Lindsay & Kevin!! 💛

We are getting so many questions/comments about this seating chart in our stories (from @kholtc01 and Brad’s big day yesterday)! The stand is from @aidenandgrace, and we designed this look in collaboration with @strevents, who planned the day! Teamwork makes the dream work ✨ #youhadmeatjalo
Today was the day. The grand opening of what we’ve poured our hearts and souls into and the reveal of our first lineup of dresses. We couldn’t of done it without the friends and family that offered their valuable time in order to help us make everything possible today. A huge thank you to every helping hand and every single person that came out today, celebrated with us and gave us so much love and support. We appreciate you endlessly! Here’s to Modern! ✨🖤🥳
