A Gathering of Creatives

Dwell Hillcrest hosted one of the fabulous Gathering of Creatives events this month and it did not disappoint. Their space is filled with perfect textures in all the right places with loads of natural light streaming in from every angle. It was the ideal place to host a gathering focused on design. Abigail Miller (http://abiartcreative.com/), Kendra Miller (http://www.kendradawnphoto.com/), and Shyla Yoder (https://loveshyla.com/) are the women behind these gatherings and they are creative masterminds. Take some time to check them out. Red Mug Coffee kept us all warm and alert with their incredible coffee as we listened to fellow women business owners share their stories. Women like Claude from The Chris & Claude Co. and Rae from Daughters of Promise Magazine. (If I'm being honest here, I was SUPER intimidated/star-struck, to the point where I couldn't even make eye contact...I'm ridiculous. Ha!) There was also space for learning all kinds of things, from lettering techniques to budgeting for our businesses...we covered a lot of ground. Basically, it was a weekend filled with beauty. Beautiful people, beautiful food, beautiful spaces, beautiful textures, beauty everywhere.

Nick & Aimee | Engagement

When I first spoke with Aimee, she warned me that her and Nick were awkward when put in front of a camera. I chuckled but she was like, "no, we reeeaally are". (She maaay hate me for publicizing this information, lol...) I did my best to reassure her and then we planned a date for their engagement session. To say that I was blown away, is a vast understatement. Not only were they AMAZING but awkward is the furthest word from my mind when scrolling through their images. I mean, check it out for yourself. THEY ROCKED IT.

Zach & Kristen | Engagement

From the very beginning, I knew that Zach and Kristen wanted snow for their engagement session. The tricky part was Zach lives in Texas and would only be in town for one week. We scheduled the session for one of his last days in Ohio and crossed our fingers. Lo and behold, there was a beautiful blizzard the night before our session. It was kind of amazing. Flurries gently fell all morning...You would never know it was FREEZING (10 degrees) because of the magic and romance of Zach and Kristen.
