West Ohio Wedding – Lauren + Michael


I’m so excited to finally share this outdoor, minimal, romantic, early summer Ohio wedding at Stone Valley Meadows in southwest Ohio by Ohio + Destination Wedding photographer, Emma Grace Photography.

Everything about Lauren and Michael’s wedding day was perfect. The venue, the colors, the wedding party, their families, the LIVE band, and of course their love! This amazing 70-degree day was the perfect way to kick off my 2023 wedding season!

My second shooter and I always start on details/getting ready moments. I always carry my detail box which includes a styling mat, flower holders, invitation risers, ring boxes, gold and white jewelry dishes, and of course, styling chiffon ribbon. For Lauren + Michael’s detail shots, we found the most gorgeous copper table that made for the perfect backdrop for styling photos. My favorite way to spice up any detailed photo is by using extra florals from your florist!

Next, we did a first look with Lauren & her Dad, which was the sweetest moment ever! He had the biggest smile on his face and by the end he had tears streaming down his face. Shortly after that, Lauren and Michael chose to do a first look. Michael’s reaction to Lauren in her dress was so sweet because you could instantly see how in awe he was over his future wife.

This lead us right into wedding party photos with their bridesmaids and groomsmen, followed by family portraits. Soon enough, it was time for the two to officially tie the knot!

Lauren and Michael are two of the kindest people I’ve ever had the chance to capture. They’re effortlessly in love with each other, and their joy radiates through their smiles. So many special moments stick out to me from their wedding day, my favorite was Lauren’s first look with her Dad. It is always so meaningful to me when I get to experience the love and support that family members have for the bride and groom!

Getting married in Ohio? I’m your girl! Don’t wait to reach out, 2024 + 2025 dates are going fast!
