Hey, I’m AJ!
Queer, Feminist, Herbivore, Libra, ENFJ. I'm a firm believer that love and laughter are the answer to pretty much everything- and that tacos never hurt, either. I freaking love this job. When I’m not shooting, or editing, or texting/Facetiming/DMing/emailing with my clients, you can find me on my couch with my partner in our Avondale home watching terrible reality TV, and probably crying at cheesy commercials. [In his defense, I’m always the one crying. But the need to catch every single episode of Are You the One on MTV is definitely both of us.] I love a good latte and a great pair of sweatpants and I definitely want to pet your dog.
I care about your wedding day as much as you do. Seriously. I’m obsessed with getting to know each of my clients on a personal level, and as a couple. Are you into dance parties? Love to cook together? More of a Grubhub couple? This shit matters to you, and so does your wedding photography. It should be fun, timeless, beautiful and PACKED with your personalities- a true reflection of your relationship in photos you’ll love forever. If that sounds good to you, I’m your girl. I’m a full service wedding professional; this means that beyond just delivering awesome photos, I’m here for you every step of the way. I’m the emergency snack-carrying, holding your dress while you pee, navigating #allthefeels with you wedding photographer and I can’t wait to dance my butt off to Whitney Houston with you on your wedding day.
I'm so glad you're here.
This is Celia
She can’t type [or speak English], but if she could, she’d tell you that she’s the cutest coworker a photographer could have. She’s always there to offer moral support during editing sessions, and loves to steal the show during FaceTime meetings, but usually she’s asleep so honestly she’s pretty useless most of the time. I saved her from a barn during an Ohio snowstorm 10 years ago and she repays me by puking on my favorite rug. Celia enjoys shouting at squirrels through window screens, shredding paper bags
and finding that perfect patch of morning light.
This is Zach
He’s my partner, my best bud, and my favorite human.
He’s insanely funny and a crazy talented painter (yes, I’m a little biased, but it’s still true!) and I feel like the luckiest human alive to get to eat Taco Bell and go on adventures with this guy. Doing life with Zach makes every day better, even the tough ones, and I draw on our love and partnership for inspiration when I’m shooting. I want to capture photos that look the way your love feels, because that feeling is pretty dang awesome.
