Cash Cab Couple. Columbus Engagement Photography

Deanna and Andy. Engaged.

We randomly stumbled upon this really cool vintage taxi cab. “Cash Cab” was on the license plate. I wanna ride in this Cash Cab!

My session fave!

Cute couple alert.  WEEEeeeeeerrrrrroooooo, WEEEEEEEeeeeeerrrrrrooooo.   (That’s my siren sound.)  Bottom right, all them.  Love it!

Dee, you are BEAUTIFUL!  (And getting your hair and makeup done…good call, smart girl!)

Some FUN facts about the couple..

When and where is your wedding?
Andrew: Our wedding is July 5, 2013 in Youngstown Ohio the day after my last day of Freedom……..oh I mean the day after our Nations Independence from England.
Deanna: Like Andrew said our wedding day is July 5, 2013 in Youngstown, hometown!

How did you meet?
Andrew: Online, through Match..those online dating sites never work in my opinion.
Deanna: We met through an online site, which is crazy yes I know. But i figured, why not!?!?

Tell us about your proposal!
Andrew: I classed it up with the proposal on a Land Fill called Robert F. Wagner Junior Park next to Battery Park in lower Manhattan NYC. Dee had no clue what happened over looking our nice present from the French that sunny historical day. With my Eldest Brother acting like the paparazzi of NYC. My Sister-in-law and nephew looking on and experiencing this wonderful occasion. Getting on that one knee that every women wants to see and asking “will you marry me”. It was the first time Dee had no words with her bottom lip quivering she had no other words but “YES”! Even though I had no doubt it wouldn’t have gone any other way but it would have been a long ride home from NYC if it went differently.

Deanna: We (or I) had planned a trip to NYC for a long weekend this past fall. During our time in the city we planned to meet up with Andy’s family for a Saturday outing. On that day, as we wanted to check out the statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, however the line for the boat was about two hours. Thus, Andy’s plan A to propose at the Statue of Liberty was shot. We then decided to take a walk around the area. At this time Andy and his brother became very persistent to walk along the water (at this point I should have made me realized something was up). As we were walking, we walked to area overlooking the water and the Statue of Liberty. At this point when I turned around Andy was down on one knee and popped the question. (Yes, the beautiful view was on a landfill (makes for a good story)). I was in shock and truly had no idea of what he had up his sleeve. I said Yes and the rest is history.

What’s your favorite thing about your significant other?
Andrew: Dee is driven also a loving person with great legs.
Deanna: Andy had the biggest heart, he is genuine, driven and keeps me laughing (as you can see).

What makes you guys unique?
Andy and Deanna: We are doing the long distance relationship thing, thus we are always on the road. Over the past 3 years we have come to know I-70 very well.

How did you find Crystal Jo?
Andrew: I hate to name drop on how we found Crystal but a “cough” “cough” “Arnold Schwarzenegger” good friend let us in on who is the best in C-Bus.
Deanna: Or seriously through a coworker of mine. (Thanks, Denica!)

Week 16 of 52:  Places.

Oh, the places you’ll go.  And we’ve been to many together.  Jason and I.  And life always leads us right back to our comfortable bedroom.

It was another one of my insomnia cases. Up at 3AM staring at the back of my eyelids.  Trying desperately to fall asleep.  I opened my eyes and wah-lah.  This heart shined gracefully across our wedding photo.  It made me smile and remember the day.  The place.  The feeling.  The love.  My Valentine’s Day Scentsy burner sits on our dresser and illuminates hearts all over our ceiling and just one heart placed just so.  It takes me back to that place of love.

Erin.  Baby Bump Numero Dos.

She’s glowing.

And so is her excited family.
Ben is going to be such a fun BIG brother!
They took their engagement photos right in this exact spot five years ago.  Erin’s idea to come back for her maternity session.  How cool?!
One became two.  Two became three.  About to be four.  In five short years.
Session fave…

Introducing Kinley Lynn. Columbus Newborn Photography

Kinley Lynn. Newborn.

Born April 9th at 8:59 AM.

She’s just a little thing, weighing 6 pounds, 9 ounces and 20 inches long. Momma didn’t know she was going to be so little based on previous ultrasounds. So Kinley gets to go shopping for new clothes and she’s barely a week old!

All because two people fell in love…

Long beautiful eyelashes and pretty blue eyes.  Love.

Every detail.  Just perfect.
Proud parents.  Love at first sight.  Congrats, Chris and Courtney!  So very blessed!
