Hadley & Joel | Amanda Lauren Collective

I love when couples choose to have their engagement session at the Franklin Park Conservatory. It is one of those locations that no matter how many times you go you always get something different. If you have never had the chance to go there I highly recommend taking an afternoon to explore.

Hadley and Joel’s session was the perfect day, while a little windy, the temperature was perfect for a Spring session. We also got very lucky with all the spring blooms we found, there were even some trees that were still blooming, which can be harder to find at the end of April. I was really excited to see this as it was something Hadley was hoping to have in her portraits. After we were done at Franklin Park we went over to Goodale Park.

If you are at all familiar with Columbus then you know Goodale Park is the go-to spot when you are looking to include those blooming cherry trees in your portraits. Thankfully, the trees did not disappoint here either.

I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from Hadley and Joel’s final gallery! Can’t wait for their wedding day in July!

Summer Wedding | Amanda Lauren Collective

I am excited to share this colorful wedding that took place in Southern Ohio last Summer. I had the pleasure of second shooting for Jacquelin Deann Photography. Everything about Sam & Grace’s wedding was so beautiful. All the flowers were bright and full of color. The bride’s mom was a florist and she is a very talented one at that. I absolutely LOVED the floral arrangements from this wedding.

Grace got ready at her parent’s home. They have a large beautiful property which allowed for the perfect first look and bridal party shots. After capturing all their portraits we headed over to their church where they had both their ceremony and reception.

The location is about 2 hours away from my hometown, so I was not expecting to know anyone. After the ceremony ended I saw a very familiar face. Turns out Grace, the bride, is the cousin of my best friend’s, brother’s wife (that’s a mouthful). Talk about a small world!

I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from the day!

Romantic Styled Wedding at The Silo | Amanda Lauren Collective

Last Spring I attended a styled shoot at The Silo in Plain City, Ohio. The Silo is a great venue if you are looking for something more intimate to host your wedding. The theme for the shoot was a romantic boho wedding style. You usually think of soft muted tones when you think of a bohemian-styled wedding but I love the way the bright colors were incorporated into this shoot.

The talented vendors that put this shoot together really outdid themselves. Over the last 2 years and a lot of couples are looking to scale down on the number of guests. Even though the size of the guest list is smaller it does not mean you need to scale down on the details of your wedding. These local vendors really showed that intimate weddings can be just as beautiful as large-scale weddings. I hope you enjoy looking through some of my favorites from the day.

Sage & Todd | Amanda Lauren Collective

Groom lifting bride under a willow tree

Sage and Todd are such a sweet couple. They are such a joy to be around and I absolutely loved working with them. There wedding was held at the beautiful Willow Tree venue in Tipp City, Ohio. This venue has multiple willow trees and an old farmhouse.

This wedding was a HOT one with the high temperature in the 90’s! Though when you look through their images you would never be able to tell. They took the heat like champs and didn’t let it stop them from having the best day. I think the heat would have stressed most brides out, but Sage was one of the most relaxed, chill brides I have ever seen on a wedding day.

When I was working on their timeline Sage asked if we could work time in the day to prank Todd. The prank was a “first look” with his dad, the catch was that his dad would be in a wedding dress. Of course I said yes! Todd was so adamant about not doing a first look with Sage that we had to trick him into even coming to the location. One of the bridesmaids told him that Sage was freaking out and needed to speak to him. When he got there he wouldn’t turn around, we had him go back to back with his dad. Once Todd was in the position his dad came around in front of him and placed his hand on him. As soon as he felt his dad’s hand he immediately knew it was not Sage. He opened his eyes and a lot of laughs followed.

It was such a joy seeing these two come together. Sage was absolutely stunning and had one of my favorite dresses to date. I hope you enjoy scrolling through some of my favorite images from their day!

Jessica & Ryan | Amanda Lauren Weddings


Jessica & Ryan reached out to me at the beginning of the year to ask me to capture their farmhouse wedding. They were so excited to become husband & wife and celebrate with their friends, family and their little boy, Michael.

During the planning process Covid began and they made the tough decision to post-pone their June wedding. Thankfully, they did not need to post-pone too long and were able to hold a small ceremony the following month at French Hen Farm in Marysville, Ohio.

French Hen Farm is a beautiful venue located just outside of Columbus. This venue has everything! A picturesque Willow tree that is the perfect ceremony and portrait back drop, rustic details throughout the property, a gorgeous bridal suite and multiple chandeliers!

Jessica & Ryan’s wedding day was so beautiful and simple. I hope you enjoy reliving their wedding day! Keep a look out for a special surprise they had for their guests as you scroll through the images!

Jessica & Ryan, you are such a sweet couple and I am so happy for you both to start this next chapter together.

Back at the beginning of May I attended my first photography workshop ran by Caroline Logan in Lancaster, PA. While there we had the pleasure of photographing the most beautiful styled shoot you could imagine. Seriously it was what wedding dreams are made of!! All vendors that worked on this did not hold back, they are all seriously so talented and it was such a dream getting to be a part of this shoot. I think we all thought it was like walking into photography heaven!!

I can’t even begin to express how grateful I am to everyone that took part in this day! If you get a chance please check out all the vendors! Also, I can’t forget to take a moment to thank the gorgeous couple that model for us all day while we all gushed over them while capturing these beautiful images.

Amanda Lauren Weddings

Back in December I attended my first styled shoot. I had no idea what I was in for and was nervous to be doing something a little out of my comfort zone. Typically if you would ask me to attend and event where I know nobody, no thank you. But I really wanted to go and when I saw it was at one of my favorite venues, The Corazon, I couldn’t sign up fast enough. I have always loved this venue . So I was really excited that I was going to capture some beautiful wedding pictures here.

The theme was a beautiful winter styled wedding with lots of red. Everyone that helped put this together did such an amazing job. It was pretty chilly out the day of, but the models were great and you couldn’t even tell how cold it was.

Enjoy some of my favorites from the day. Also, go check out all the amazing vendors that helped put this all together. They are all so talented.
