An Elopement in Mt Airy Forest // Joanna + Todd // Cincinnati Elopement Photographer Brooke Townsend

This intimate elopement in the woods was one of my favorite little things this year. I love the intimacy of elopements because it feels like it resets a wedding day back to what’s most important - the couple being in love and dedicated their lives to each other. And just leaving the rest to the side.

Joanna and Todd’s families were both able to be present for this one too - including their little fur baby Winston! - and it made this little ceremony even more special. And even though I only spent a few hours with the two of them, it was some of the most genuine time I ever spent with total strangers. Thank you both for inviting me into your life and letting me capture the beauty you guys naturally are <3
