Richy & Alyson | North High Brewing & Jeffrey Mansion Engagement

It was around eight months ago that I sat down with Richy and Alyson over coffee on a chilly evening and first heard snippets of their love story.

Columbus Ohio Wedding Photographer - North High Brewing - Richy & Alyson Engagement_0035Columbus Ohio Wedding Photographer - North High Brewing - Richy & Alyson Engagement_0035 Alyson is a huge fan of craft beer, so many a date night was spent trying out local breweries.  Richy and Alyson were on a brewery tour when they first came across North High Brewing.  It quickly became a favorite spot of theirs, so when Alyson mentioned that she knew Gavin, one of the co-owners of the brewery, and that she was hoping to photograph some of their engagement session there, I was delighted!  I do love new and unique locations, and this was not only that, it was also a part of their story.

Hey there!  I'm Deborah Grace, and this little space you've stumbled into is a peek into my world, and into the world of those who've allowed me into their stories .  I'm a photographer, an artist, a storyteller, and a dreamer.  I adore the way photography has afforded me the opportunity to glimpse into people's stories.  People are beautiful, imperfect, messy and wonderful.  I think most times we just need to know that we're doing okay at this life thing.  That's why I take photos.  I think people often miss the beauty of their own stories because they're in the middle of them.  I think my lens is basically just a gift God put in my hands to help others see how wonderful they really are, and that their stories matter.  I always feel like the lucky one because I am.  Getting to hear your messy, imperfect, hilarious, one-of-a-kind adventure-of-a-story never fails to convince me that in spite of everything, God is making something really beautiful out of all of us.  And that inspires my socks off every time.   So yes.  I'm the lucky one who gets an in to the beautiful stories that people are.  I love new friends so drop me a line if you'd like to connect.  -xoxo
