About | Apples and Oak Photography


Hello, thanks for stopping by! I am a natural light, on location photographer. After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Ohio State University, I moved back to my native Hocking Hills where I currently live and work. I am the recipient of several honors including Ohio Associated Press Best Feature Photo, Ohio Associated Press Best Illustration as well as the Society of Professional Journalists Mark of Excellence Award. I have also received the Hocking County Mental Health Advocate Award for my work as a photography mentor for at-risk youth in the community. When I’m not working, I go on adventures with my husband, Ryan Grundish, and our two energetic boys, Huxley and Elan. Things I really like: coffee, Modern Library’s 100 Best Novels, nature documentaries, atmospheric/ambient music, beauty in the mundane, sunsets, country drives, cooking, little kid jokes, hiking, road trips, Project Runway, Star Trek Next Generation, Pinterest crafts and sharing special moments.

For wedding, elopement + engagement photography, check out my work at Elizabeth Nihiser Photography.
