The Big Day
Samantha and Chad were married at one of my favorite Columbus Ohio wedding venues. I sure hope the staff at Jorgensen Farms isn’s sick of seeing me because I have a lot of future weddings scheduled on the farm. And I hope if you are reading this you also love the pretty photos of Oak Grove as much as I do because I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon
Samantha and Chad had the sweetest first look under the oak tree. They read notes from each other before turning around to see each other for the first time on their wedding day. Following the first look we had a lot of time for photos… photographers love first looks for this reason! These two were the most laid back, so fun and so up for anything I suggested. Two of my favorite shots were Samantha jumping up for a piggy back ride while walking back to their reception and also when I suggested the amazing DJ, Josh Staley, have the guests photo bomb our cute couple as they posed outside the reception hall. I’m pretty sure I was the inventor of this now trending shot at Oak Grove and have had a few requests since then to recreate it at future weddings!
How did you two meet?
We’ve been best friends since high school and fell in love during college. Our jobs lead us to different states but our love always grew. This fall marks 4 years living in Seattle, Washington and we’re falling more in love together in this amazing city everyday.
How long have you been together?
10 years this August 17!
How did he/she propose?
He popped the question on the Puget Sound waterfront in West Seattle looking out to the downtown skyline.
What do you love to do together?
Traveling and being adventurous! You’ll find us down by the lake with our golden retriever Burly.
If you could pick one word that describes you as a couple, what would it be?
What do you love most about her?
Her energy and compassion. She has the biggest heart and balances me.
What you do love most about him?
His laugh and smile. You’ll always see me smiling when we’re together. He is most positive person I know and has so much drive. He pushes me to go after my dreams and makes me a better person. Caring and selfless, Chad will do anything for those he loves.
