I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.

The first time I met these two, I immediately felt at ease. It was probably a mixture of their amazing sense of humor + how completely calm they were. Both of them portrayed a feeling of absolute satisfaction and were adorably in love. I am making a point to say this because it is extremely rare […]

I took a short hiatus a couple weeks ago, and it honestly could not have come at a better time. Unplugging for four days was truly refreshing. YES, you read that right – FOUR days. Granted I still took some photos (the sunsets were unreal!), but I did not bring my DSLR, nor did I […]

Mary is a beautiful soul. I wanted to start this post off with that statement, because she truly shines. She is not only kind & humble, but she is a light to anyone around her. I knew this a long time ago, when I first met the Neff family in grade school, but it became […]

Nothing says engagement session like two weeks before the wedding! If I wasn’t already excited for Brittany + Matt’s wedding, this session would do it. These two were beautiful, compassionate and had the Blue Steel look down pat! It was so fun spending the sunset with them!! Enjoy some of my faves (and get as […]

Sarah & Ryan had such a beautiful day filled with so many things that described them as a couple! From the light and airy Anna Dean Farm in Barberton, OH (The Piggery) as a venue, to the LOTR’s seating chart to even the cake design! It was a small, yet delicate way to show off […]

Kyle + Kristen’s special day made me love everything about barn weddings! The romantic string lights, rustic wood, beautiful sunset, bonfire pits, lots of greenery and enough love to go around – I mean who wouldn’t enjoy it? These two made my heart swooooon with five o’s! Kyle’s love and gratitude for Kristen & Kristen’s gorgeous […]

True Story: my to-do lists are thousands of miles long. When I jumped into this profession I didn’t realize how much commitment was needed, especially for the non-creative aspects of the job. On a typical day, I wear multiple hats.  They range from business manager, to creative director, networker, editor, website designer, social media strategist, […]

This is how the conversation went: “Mariss, can we hike somewhere after I finish Step 1?” “Sure Jen! Anywhere in particular?” “I want to see a National Park!”  Even though we have one in our own backyard, why not out west? So we researched & booked the necessities. My CF card quickly filled with more […]

Liz + Frank, oh Liz + Frank! First of all, usually during meetings, I try extremely hard to keep my typical professional cool. But Liz’s meeting was a different story! Let’s just say she stated that she was pretty much into HP as much as I am. So after some squeals + squeaks (and maybe tears of joy as […]

Bridgette + Mike were two people completely immune to jet lag. Well maybe not, but I am pretty certain getting off a plane at 4am and then doing a sunset anniversary session deserves some kind of award! (If it were me I would be useless the entire day!) But, nope! They were troopers! It’s beautiful […]
