Mr + Mrs Mattingly

It's hard to know where to start for this amazing summer wedding! Because it was so different, unique, and just totally authentic to who Dan + Chanel are as people, and as a couple. 

I remember first meeting Chanel and getting SO excited when she was telling me details about their wedding. Her rock n roll theme reception at the iconic Redmoor Theatre in Cincinnati. All the colored makeup she wanted her and her girls to have. And all the littlest details that she put so much attention to was such a breath of fresh air to make a wedding unapologetically THEM. 

But also, she put such a focus on what I might want to do with photography and gave me complete and total creative freedom. Which isn't something I get to come across very often! 

For their engagement photos, we drove out to Hocking Hills to do an epic trail hike through a gorge and finished it off with smoke bombs and DJ lights in the woods at night (see their engagement session here!)

And for their wedding, they wanted to dedicate an entire section of their day to relax and take fun photos at Eden Park with their friends which involved music themes, confetti, and a first look through the AMAZING Khron Conservatory. 

And honestly, it was such a blast to capture them with all their friends and family who came out to celebrate such a fun loving couple who literally bring the best out of each other. 

Enjoy these <3
