Harvest of Memories bio picture
  • WELCOME!

    I am so happy to have you here if this is our first time visiting! For those that don't know me, I started my photography business, Harvest of Memories, in 2009 and never, ever imagined I would be where I am right now, which would be running my business, full-time from my home! I am not your average photographer. I am unique and creative photographer. I am a wife and mother of two precious girls and hit the ground running when I started my business. I have taken photographs for people all over Ohio and gained so many clients just by word of mouth. HOM is not a "pose and shoot" business. I produce inventive, original, timeless photographs to cherish important memories forever. I am currently serving Central Ohio including Columbus, Gahanna, New Albany, Granville, Westerville, and Newark, Ohio.

    "Life is pretty simple to me.....pretend that every single person you meet has a sign around their neck that says 'Make me feel important.'" -Darlene Hall

Virtues Golf Club Wedding | Jakob and Angela

Virtues Golf Club Wedding

I always enjoy events at the Virtues Golf Club because it provides so many gorgeous locations and for me its a close to home venue for myself.  I honestly can’t wait to share the images from Jakob and Angela’s wedding.  It’s no surprise that they approved their wedding album so quickly because their images are so sweet.  I loved Angela’s dress, the flowers, Jakob’s tie and suit were all very classy looks.  They decided on the first look, which is always exciting because I couldn’t wait for him to see her and for Angela to see Jakob.  We had a great time with their bridal party and watching all of them dance at the reception sent me home with a face that hurt with laughter.  To view more of their images, click here.

Engagement Photography Newark Ohio | Madeline and Matt

Engagement Photography Newark Ohio

I’m obsessed with Matt and Madeline’s engagement pictures!  This particular time of the season, I started to play around with my posing ideas to capture natural reactions and finding new ways to make my models laugh.  I have discovered just telling a couple to look at each other and laugh doesn’t deliver the reaction I wanted.  I can’t reveal all of my secrets, but you can see by these images it worked.  I met up with Madeline and Matt at his family property where he proposed the Madeline.  We started about an hour before sunset to give us a chance to get some formal photos before the golden hour.  They changed outfits and we went on a tour of different locations to consider.  My most favorite would be right outside the woods and the soft light from the sun lighting them up.  The only reason we stopped taking pictures would be the sun went down, which was lucky for Matt and Madeline as I would have delivered a mini wedding amount of images to them.

Columbus Ohio Weddings | Devin and Taylor

Columbus Ohio Weddings

I was honored to be Devin and Taylor’s wedding photographer.  I have watched this love story from their High School days, to Homecoming court, to supporting each other during their college days.  Both are so sweet and kind.  Taylor brought great ideas to their engagement session so I couldn’t wait to see her wedding day details.  The wedding day delivered gorgeous fall weather and we managed to get rooftop images that Taylor wanted for her wedding day.  It was so rewarding to witness their wedding vows between 2 people I know so well.  I almost started to cry when Devin cried.  To view more images from Taylor and Devin’s wedding day, click here.

IronGate Wedding | Josh and Courtney

IronGate Wedding

I have had this particular wedding venue, IronGate Equestrian Center, on my list of dream locations.  Now that I have it under my belt, I would love to go back.  It’s absolutely gorgeous.  It was the perfect way to end my 2017 wedding season. It was so great to see the fall season look absolutely stunning on their wedding day that took place the first weekend of November.  I couldn’t wait to see Courtney and Josh again as we had so much fun during their engagement session.  This location is huge.  The ladies had plenty of room to get ready in one room and had all of their dresses out of their plastic bags, hanging all together on their own personalized hangers in another room.  You might think, what’s the big deal?  I have been in so many small rooms for bridal parties and it always feels even smaller when we all try to move around so this was a great change of pace.  Everybody was all smiles.  When I found the flowers from Linnets, I couldn’t get my camera out fast enough to go with the pretty dresses they had on display.  Gale Dennison did an amazing job making all of the ladies look so pretty with their makeup and Brigitta Sabitini styled their hair perfectly.  We had so much fun working with Courtney and Josh before the ceremony.  We walked all over the property both before and after the ceremony to deliver gorgeous images to an incredible couple.  If you want to view more images from the Albright wedding, click here.
