Molly and Benjamin, Images by Brad from Photosmith

Molly and Benjamin married on the 21st. Photosmith has been fortunate enough to shoot the weddings of all three of the Beck sisters. Each of these three women had beautiful weddings and each one unique. Molly and Benjamin got married under the gazebo at Lake Lyndsay. Molly and her dad pulled up to the ceremony site in Mr. Beck's classic red Corvette. Friends were a big part of the ceremony, giving readings and even officiated the ceremony. The wedding party was dressed in classic tuxedos and indigo dresses. At the reception, the couple had a brownie cake! Instead of what you might think of as a traditional wedding cake, this couple chose a tiered platter with brownies. That's my kind of cake. The only thing better would be pie. Cherry with a good cup of hot coffee. Mmmm.... Here are a few pictures from Saturday.

Monica and David

Monica and David's engagement session at Cincinnati Nature Center was fabulous. No rain. Blue skies. Green trees. They are getting married this Saturday and I hope their wedding day is every bit as spectacular. I'm sure it will be. Here are a few sneak peaks from their engagement session.

Winslow and K2

Here are a few pictures from a portrait session Brad did last week. Brad always tries to get some standard smiling portraits, but he really looks to capture the moment and each child's personality.

Megan and Tony's Wedding by Kathy of Photosmith, Cincinnati Wedding Photography

Megan and Tony were married this past Saturday in an outside ceremony at Nathanael Greene Lodge. The forecast called for rain throughout the day, but that didn't let that stop them! When it was time to make the call whether or not to move the ceremony inside, Megan said they were going to go for it! Go big or go home, right? The rain held out for Megan's stroll down the aisle.

Have you ever seen a prettier bride?
It started to rain right as they were finishing up their vows. It didn't phase Megan and Tony at all. They were so focused on each other; it was ridiculously romantic!
I loved this bridal party. They were so awesome to work with!


Um, hello... they have swords. How rad is that?
Of course the swords were needed to slay the dragon, what else would they be for? What a rockin' gooms cake! LOVE IT! (By Diane's Cakes)

Megan and Tony, it was an absolute pleasure being able to document your day for you! Congratulations and may you have a lifetime of happiness!

Katie and Murray, photography by Brad Smith and Suz Fleming-Smith of Photosmith

Katie and Murray had a truly lucky wedding day rain on Saturday. All the luck of rain on their wedding day, plus it only rained when they weren't outside! Katie and Murray were great to work with and such a classy couple. You can see that Katie is ahead of what will surely be the new fashion trend thanks to Princess Kate Middleton: lace and sleeves. Though our Katie's dress is technically sleeveless, it still maintains the same kind of timeless look and elegance. Katie and Murray married at the beautiful St. Xavier and their reception was held at the Cincinnati Club. Murray is the fourth Monroe that Photosmith has provided photography services for. We always feel honored when family and friends refer us. Best wishes to this couple from everyone at Photosmith!
