Hannah and Bryan. Engaged.

Look how cute they are together. You can tell life’s going to be fun for this pair.
OHHHMMMGEE…I LOVE these photos!  That tree is divine!
Look at Hannah’s dress and heels! The girl knows fashion. I can’t wait to see her wedding dress!
Aww! What’s sweeter than Eskimo kisses? Maybe Hershey Kisses, but nothing else.

Beck Tavern was a hangout for these lovebirds when Bryan lived around the corner.  This was the spot where they realized they were in it to win it!

Bullseye!


Where’s Waldo?:)

Some fun facts about this cute couple…

When and where is your wedding?
We are getting married July 27, 2013 at St. Brendan’s in Hilliard, and our reception will be held downtown at The Vault. We loved the uniqueness of the space, and of course, the bar located in the old bank vault.

How did you meet?
Bryan and I met when he was in law school and I was finishing my first Master’s degree. One of my close friends from college went to law school with him at Capital. We were friends for about a year before we “clicked”.

Tell us about your proposal.
Bryan knows I loooove fireworks (and all things that are sparkly!), so when he asked me if I wanted to go to Riverfest on Labor Day weekend, I was super excited. It’s Cincinnati’s version of Red, White and Boom, but the fireworks are set off over the Ohio River. The remnants of Hurricane Isaac were blowing through town that day and Bryan was so wound up about the fireworks potentially being cancelled. Somehow that didn’t clue me in at all that he had something special up his sleeve. When it was time for the show to start, we were able to work our way down to the front row of the Serpentine Wall because it wasn’t super crowded like most years. The show started, and about ten minutes in Bryan tapped me on my shoulder and when I turned around he had the ring box open and asked me to marry him. I couldn’t tell you one more thing about the firework show that night.

What’s your favorite thing about your significant other?
Hannah- My favorite thing about Bryan is his sense of humor. Even when I’m mad at him he has the ability to make me laugh at him. I’ve had some difficult things happen in my personal life the past year and he has been beside me every second offering me support and cheering me up.
Bryan- The way Hannah has the ability to help me believe in myself and have confidence in myself when I begin to waver and lose those things.

What makes you guys unique?
Let’s just say that conversation where we clicked was about “pig wrestling” aka a pig scramble I took part in during high school at my county fair, and a Chevy Silverado. We are super goofy and obscure. If someone was listening in on our conversations they would have no idea what we were talking about. That may or may not make us a unique couple, but the way we relate to each other versus the outside world is unique =)

How did you find Crystal Jo?
A friend of a friend used Crystal Jo for her wedding and the pictures were so fun and fabulous! I loved how the colors and details popped in all of the pictures I saw on her website and blog. (Thanks Ellen and Margaux!)

Margaux Weinandy - Crystal Jo, these pictures are so awesome! I’m so glad Hannah and Bryan came to you, you have that special eye for capturing the couple!

Hannah, you are going to make one beautiful bride! Congrats to the happy couple!

My vote for president goes to… Columbus Baby Photography

Ox. 3 Months Big.

He’s really James the III, but his adorable nickname is Ox. Ox means the third in Mayan and the Mayan civilization is where Reece (the Mommy) traveled to a few years ago when she studied abroad.


His name is spelled with a hug and a kiss. That must be why he’s extra sweet. OX…oxoxoxoxoxo!
Ox has my vote for president! I mean REALLY.  Just look at those big brown eyes and soft curls.

Reece, James and Ox, thank you so much for making the drive from Indy for our session. You guys are beautiful people and I couldn’t wish you more happiness. OXOXOXOXOX!

Reece Williams - Hubby and I are speechless! These photos are nothing less than amazing!!! James is so thrilled and cant stop smiling. Crystal Jo you are truly blessed with a gift….a gift to capture art and to create memories for families like ours. We cant wait to see the rest of the pictures. We’re super geeked!!!! :-)

Berry Beautiful. Columbus Model Photography

Hadley. Model.

Hadley has big beautiful brown eyes and a gorgeous smile.
Berry Beautiful.  My session fave!
I love her exotic look.
Hey Vogue, here comes Hadley!
She works at Hollister.  That would be so much fun, like a loud party… and you get to come home smelling so yummy!
Hadley, you are stunning, and your future in modeling is sure to busy and bright.

More on Hadley…

How long have you been modeling, and how did you get started?
I’ve only been modeling for a little over a year at Heyman. I actually started because a lot of people told me I should model, and I figured I had nothing to lose!

Do you have a favorite model?
I don’t have one model who is my absolute favorite, but I do admire all of the Victoria’s Secret models – they are flawless.

What makes modeling fun/rewarding?
Modeling has given me confidence in myself. I’ve always looked a little more ethnic compared to others I’m amongst at school and I used to feel self conscious about it. Modeling has taught me to embrace my characteristics and know that being different is actually interesting.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I’m Editor-In-Chief of my school paper and yearbook, so that keeps me very busy. With this responsibility, I  take photos at school functions as well as of my friends and family in my spare time. I like being able to document memories for others, whether it be printed in my school newspaper or hung on my family member’s wall.

How was your experience with Crystal Jo Foto?
Crystal Jo was such a gem! She made me feel very comfortable while shooting. Anytime she loved a photo, she’d show me, which made me feel good about myself and eager to continue on. She has such an amazing talent:)Thanks you soooo much!
