It was a little rainy in Indiana on Saturday, October 2nd. The drive took a little longer than anticipated. But the day was basically perfect.
I know these people. These are some of my favorite people. The younger brother to my best friend; I’ve known this groom since he was a baby. I’ve known the bride for years. Not as many, but YEARS. We’ve all shivered our butts off at Kings Island’s Haunt. And more recently, braved one of those 95 degree, 100% humidity, beautiful (insert eyeroll) Cincinnati Summer days for some engagement portraits.
I am so honored to have been asked to photograph their big (finally) wedding day.
Congratulations to Jordan and Eric!
-Love, Lindsey and Tiffany

(in Latin America and among Latinos) a celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday and her transition from childhood to adulthood, typically involving a mass followed by a party.
My neighbor turned 15 this week.
When I think back on previous birthdays, I cannot recall my 15th. I remember my yearbook picture from that year. I can remember the music I was listening to and the movies I was watching. But I cannot recall the event of my actual birthday (sorry Mom.) Now, my 16th… that one I remember. But I digress.
My neighbor, Natalie turned 15 this week. And this milestone is one that stick around in her memory for quite some time. Her 15th is wrapped in Latin American traditions and celebrated with one heck of a party.
On Thursday evening, friends and family gathered to honor the birthday girl and celebrate Natalie’s quinceañera at the Marmalade Lily, in Loveland, Ohio. Guests dined on Puerto Rican cuisine and birthday cake; raised their glasses to several heartfelt and anecdotal toasts from family members; and bore witness to the changing of her shoes. She had a close-knit court of friends, one gorgeous gown, and let me tell you about her Chucks!
The father-daughter dance was followed by a “Happy Birthday” singalong, a beautifully delivered speech from Natalie, and a choreographed number performed by her court. Oh! and another rendition of “Happy Birthday” for Natalie’s fellow court member/bestie that shares the same date. It was a fun time for all.
Saturday, October 24th was a rainy day, but that didn’t dampen Nicole and Mike’s big day! I only had a few hours with these two; and I had a wonderful time capturing every moment. Please enjoy some of the images from Nicole and Mike’s wedding day!
Congratulations again to Nicole and Mike! Best wishes for a beautiful future together!
