We made it!!!

Phew, I can finally breathe... for now. I survived 2 engagement sessions and 2 weddings within 72 hours. Woo!! What kept me going? A comfy king size hotel room bed, and a lot of energy drinks.

The day started out in Downtown Cincinnati for Jessica and Justin's big day! We had a great time, and finally got to shoot at a new venue - New Riff! It was awesome. They were serious troopers, it was FREEZING outside, and also spitting rain... luckily, outdoor photographs were really important to them and they toughed it out. I think it was WELL worth it. My one piece of advice to brides? ROCK your dress. It's the only day you're going to wear it, so make it worth it. Suck it up, and dance in the rain a little ;)




After we left, we made the 2.5 hour drive up to Maria Stein, OH! The long drive brought to you by this delicious hot chocolate...

We woke up on Saturday and prepped for the day ahead. Molly and Chris were SUCH a gorgeous, sweet couple. Molly and I had never met in person, but spent many hours over Skype getting to know each other. She's one of the sweetest gals I've had the chance to work with. Unfortunately, the weather didn't agree with us and kept us inside the majority of the day. However, they chose the most gorgeous barn to get married in, so it all worked out!




Caleb and I didn't get to bed until well after midnight, seeing as we had a 2.5 hour drive home...so sleeping in is just what the doctor ordered. Caleb went to the Bengals game yesterday (can I get a WHO-DEY!!?! 4-0 baby!!!), while I stayed home and edited my tush off. Then met up with another sweet couple for their last-minute engagement session. Their wedding is next month, and we can't WAIT!!

I'm definitely exhausted today, but really proud of us for getting through this busy weekend. I'm really looking forward to getting through this work week because this weekend? FREE! I can't believe it. We have LOTS of fun planned and its going to be great! Hope everyone had a fun, fall-filled weekend!!!
