Iam a devoted wife. A hippo person. An Akronite. A mom boss. A ballroom dancer. A feminist. A Jedi. I'm sarcastic, silly, and a little weird. Okay, a lot weird. I think I'm awesome, but that's only an opinion (it has yet to be proven as a fact).

I love my family. My job. My pets. My city. Oreos! Flip-flops. The ocean. Ireland. Photography. Comfy yoga pants. Shopping on Amazon. Doctor Who. Eighties Rock. Driving at warp speed. And coffee. Oh my, how I love coffee.

Hi I'm Love. I'm the lead photographer here at Gra Photography. My photography fetish, well, it's like a drug. I love a good photo. I love capturing real life, and sharing these moments with others. Getting "the shot" sends endorphins up and down my spine. I'm completely self taught, and have been hands on every step of the way.

I'm a photojournalist. I don't fake moments or force your connection. I do what has to be done to get the shot, including climbing up 10 foot fences or balancing on the edge of bridges. I go with the flow. I'm calm under pressure and have ninja-like reflexes. I absolutely love my job. I'm surrounded by families and couples who are celebrating their love for one another. I couldn't ask for a better work environment.

Plus, I get cake! Like, all the time!
Most days you can find me in yoga pants, working in my office with a smile on my face and our son (sticky hands and all) in my lap. If not there, than probably creating some new craft item with our middle child, or trying really hard to like the youTuber my oldest is raving about. 

I am a wife to my hunky husband Brandon and I love bragging about him. I love our relationship, and how even now after all these years together he can still make me laugh. I love the adventures we go on together, even if it's just being silly in the grocery store. It's not unusual to see me sneaking in a quick kiss between photos, or shooting a compliment his way in the middle of a session. Life is about living it, every day.

I am a firm believer that we only have one life, I believe in making it count, keeping it real, and jumping in with both feet.

Getting "the shot" sends endorphins up and down my spine. I'm completely self taught, and have been hands on every step of the way.

I decided to break away from my traditional job three years ago, and jumped head first into this addiction without any regrets. I'm a photojournalist, which means I capture the moments when they happen. I don't fake them or force your connection.

Rest assured!

My camera is like my third hand. Except, it only takes pictures, which means it has had plenty of time to become an exceptional moment catcher! Aside from creepily following you around for a day (which I'll admit, is most of my job) snapping those moments you want to admire and reminisce over for the rest of your lives, I will also laugh at all of your jokes (good or bad), not remind you how behind you are on your timeline and will eat any delicious treats you have to offer. Aside from the timeline bit I sound very much like a pet dog...don't mind that.

When not following you around like a lost pup you can usually find me at home either in the garage, gaming, making embarrassing noises at our toddler or being schooled by the larger two as to what is currently "lit AF", how to properly pronounce GIF (IMO choosy mom's don't choose it) or who they currently "ship".

I also believe you can tell a lot about a person by the type of beer they drink. My favorite: Kentucky Bourbon Barrel. But I'm from Tennessee, so take that as you will.

Obviously, we're cool people who take awesome pictures and we would love to spend the day capturing the celebration of your love for each other!

Shipped.

AF.

all the details

We do our best to make it simple for you, keep it fun, and focus on the precious real moments that naturally occur between two people who are madly in love. Years from now, when you look back at your wedding images we want all of those memories to come flooding back. To relive the bliss, light, and laughter from the day you wed.

Let's Get Started!

Let's Meet Up

First:

You like our style! Great! That's one of the largest obstacles in finding a wedding photographer. Style. Ours is classic, bold and timeless. We aim to create images that will last the test of time. Unlike some fads (We're talking about you, 80's puffy shoulder monstrosities) our images will still stand strong ten, twenty, even thirty years from now. 

So, what do you do now? Well, down below is a fantastic tool for you to reach us. Just put in your information, add why you are excited to have us shoot your wedding, and we will get back to you as soon as possible. We will schedule a date to meet up, and a location - that MUST have

We will schedule a date to meet up, and a location - that MUST have coffee - and we will get together and discuss your special day. We like to start with how you met one another, your engagement story, and any other details you want to discuss with us about who you two are as a couple.

We met, we chatted, you laughed at our dad jokes! You loved us! Now what?!?

second:

We are thrilled you like us as much as we like you! We can't wait to be a part of your wedding day, but to do that, we have to make sure your date is secure. Once you give us the go ahead, we will send you over a custom booking proposal, where you can review your contract, pay your retainer and secure your date. 

Yay! I guess this makes us a thing now. As our daughter would say, I totally ship it. (I'm pretty sure I used that term correctly. Haha!) 

Now that the stress of finding the perfect photographer is over, let's get to the fun part! Your engagement session!

Let's Shoot

Third:

This is the most fun part of the experience for us! However, we know the idea of being the subject of so much focus can be nerve wracking for you. Don't worry, we guarantee you will feel like yourself within 15 minutes of our session.

We aim to put our couples at ease, by telling silly jokes, making faces, and giving you prompts to talk to one another about. All of these tactics help you forget that you are in the middle of a photo session, and instead let you focus on the relationship you have with your significant other.

Fourth:

Wow! Time flew by so quick. We can't believe it's only 6 weeks before your wedding already. It's time for us to meet up one more time and work through your day of timeline. Remember all of those emails we sent you in the beginning of this process? Well one of them was a worksheet to help you plan your day with consideration to time and how important certain aspects of your day are. Hopefully you have it completed, but if not, that's okay! We'll work together to fill in any empty spots.

This worksheet is something you can share with your other vendors as well, so they get an idea of how your day will go, and what you are expecting from each of them.

Also, now is the perfect time for any questions about expectations. We have photographed weddings for ten years, and are great at helping plan a realistic timeline. Oh, and those swoon-worthy images you found on pinterest? We can talk you through which ones you want to put in the must have category.

fifth:

It's your wedding day! I can't believe it. All of the planning and preparation has gotten you this far, let us take you the rest of the way. You will have so much going on today, let us work to capture it all for you. That's why we went through the timeline together and have spent so much time getting to know one another. 

We will make sure to get all of the traditional images a couple should expect on their wedding day, as well as capturing the intimate moments in between. Expect to get images of events you weren't aware occurred (such as Uncle Bob's impromptu dance jig on the other side of the dance floor, or your niece's adorable face when she watched you put on your dress for the first time).

After your big day, your sneak peek will be posted on the blog within 10 days of your wedding. We love to give our couples images from their wedding as soon as possible.

Finally:

After your wedding, you will receive your online gallery full of HUNDREDS of wedding images. It will be password protected so only those you want to see your memories, will. Your professionally processed images will be available for download directly from your gallery.

Make viewing your wedding images special, grab a glass of wine, put on some sentimental music and reminisce over your wedding day.

Soon after, you will receive your album design (if you have ordered one), and we can go through and customize it to tell the story of your day.













We love being a part of our couple's lives after their wedding, and hopefully we will continue to tell the story of your family as it grows (by little feet or fuzzy paws or fantastic promotions!).

Love and her husband made our wedding day! They were hilarious and made everyone feel incredibly comfortable. My husband is not a fan of taking pictures but had so much fun with Love and Brandon! THEY ARE GREAT!!! We will book them for all future picture moments!

Working with Love was an amazing experience. Neither my husband or I really like having our picture taken, but Love really made us feel so comfortable and made us forget that the camera was there. Our pictures turned out beautiful and we have gotten so many compliments on them. We can’t wait to work with Love again soon!

MORE >

"OH MY F@#$&0CKING GOD. I love all of them. Like, I can't even pick just one great one because they're all so amazing. I love the shot with the bagel, and the candids, and JUST EVERYTHING. I am so excited to see the rest of them. Ugh, so glad we had you and Brandon as photographers. Really there were no other options. LOVE THE PICS AND LOVE YOU GUYS."
