Marisa Youngblood Yoga

My dear friend. Soul-friend. Fellow Enneagram 4 and Wildflower Soul.

She’s traveled through wilderness and back (the soul-kind of traveling). Multiple times for her young life. She’s strong. She’s resilient. She’s beautiful (heart, mind, body, soul). And she’s ready to teach others from her life’s journey so far.

We spent a morning together during a quick trip I got to take to Colorado. The following images are a few of my favorites.

A Sunrise Couple's Session in the Hudson Valley

This sunrise session was nothing short of magical.

I’ve had the privilege of knowing Elizabeth and her family for many years through our amazing church in Colorado Springs (we miss you IAC!) Elizabeth’s heart is made of gold I’m pretty sure - and she has an inspiring way with words and an eye for cultivating beauty and meaning. She and Jared were married six months ago and I was excited to meet him for the first time that morning!

Over the weekend, my dear friend Erin Witkowski and I hosted a group of women at our Day Seven Workshop. This session was my styled shoot where I was able to show how invite meaningful moments and capture intimate connection during my photoshoots.

These two are stunning. Their love is magic and their hearts are connected to God and to one another in a deep way. I know they are going to beautiful things in the world. 

Thank you Elizabeth and Jared for being our guests for this shoot at the Day Seven Workshop. We all loved photographing you and your genuine, beautiful love. That sunrise was pretty epic, too. :)

So beyond grateful for this morning we had together!

Below are a couple of behind-the-scenes that Erin took. :)

I’m so impressed with the way Elizabeth and Jared remained so in-tune and connected with one another with all these photographers around!

Katie + Richard : A Beautiful + Classic Columbus Wedding

Katie and Richard are not only a great couple, but they're a blast and know how to host a fabulous party! One of the things I loved most about their wedding was the way they incorporated important memories of beloved family members who had passed on. Their thoughtfulness shined through the evening with framed photographs of their loved ones and even a vintage cake topper used by Katie’s late (and very beloved) grandfather “Curley”. Curley’s favorite Priest even made the trip up from Kentucky to officiate the wedding ceremony, which was so beautiful!

I’m so grateful I got to witness and photograph this incredible celebration. Congratulations Katie and Richard! Much love to you!

Madison + Sam: Stunning + Romantic Ohio Wedding

Everything about Sam + Madison's wedding was a dream. From the gorgeous venue, to the incredible florals, the soft blues, gold velvet and forest green colors, to the romantic ambiance. It was a visual feast for the eyes. Ok, the one thing that wasn't so ideal was the single digit temps and the strong winds whipping across the countryside!  But it didn't matter. Everyone had an amazing time and we even still managed to brave the cold for a few shots. 

It was truly an honor to capture this day. The deep love, the joy, the beauty, the amazing details that made everything shine. I'm grateful I got to be a part of Sam + Madison's day. And so thankful I got to work with the following incredible team of vendors! Check them out and be sure to give them some love!

Mado and Sam, this was such a beautiful and sacred day. And knowing you two, I must also say, the best is yet to come! God bless, my friends. 

A Beautiful + Sacred Colorado Mountain Top Wedding

I adored meeting this couple and photographing their love. We first met via skype to talk about their wedding day and I felt instantly connected to them. They're kind (SO kind), passionate about life, God, and one another, and they had an incredible vision for their wedding day. Their mountain-top ceremony included a musician and friend leading everyone in worship and praise, which was a unique and beautiful experience. It was full of light and love and beautiful Colorado sunshine (and a bit of wind and rain, too!)

Thank you, Lauren + Hudson for allowing me to witness and capture your love! I can't wait to see how your lives make an incredible impact together.
