Columbus Renaissance Hotel Wedding | Whitney and Darryl

 

Whitney and Darryl’s wedding at the Renaissance Hotel was nothing short of amazing with all the detail!

The ceremony with all the nice uplighting and the reception was breathtaking. This wedding was very fun to photograph. We started at Whitney’s hotel room as she was getting ready. I hung the dress up over the bed for the symmetry. As I was taking the photos I saw Whitney and her bridesmaids looking out on the pool deck at another bride doing their first look. The girls were smiling and have a great time. After I finished up with the girls I checked on the guys. I found Darryl being helped by two groomsmen at once for his cufflinks. We then proceeded to have Whitney and Darryl hold hands around a corner without seeing each other. The ceremony went great and I was informed that at the end of the ceremony this was going to be Whitney and Darryl’s first kiss ever! There was a lot of pressure on me but I knew I would get it just as I do it at every wedding. After the ceremony we went to take photos throughout the Renaissance Hotel. Everything was decorated for Christmas so it was pretty easy for me. I love setting up the lighting in all the locations around the Renaissance. I am so glad everything turned out great and we didn't even have to leave the hotel. Congratulations Whitney and Darryl!

Columbus Athenaeum Wedding Photos | Anna and Jay

This Columbus Athenaeum Wedding with Anna and Jay.

This wedding was pretty changeling to say the least but the photos turned out so much better than I could have ever imagined. I think I do very well under pressure. Anna and Jay didn’t want to see each other before the ceremony and the sun was setting at 5pm. Basically the lighting was all up to me after the ceremony. This was the ultimate test for all my skills and it worked out great! We started at Northwest Christian Church in Upper Arlington. We got a few portraits of the groomsmen and bridesmaids outside before the ceremony. The ceremony went well and then we took a few portraits after sunset behind the church in the woods. The lighting was critical and turned out great. We then traveled to COSI to have the Columbus skyline in the background. After that we went to Scioto Mile Bicentennial Park. The fountain was not lit up because it was November. So I quickly put a red gel on my flash and put it in the background. The result was amazing. After taking photos at the fountain we traveled to the reception at the Columbus Athenaeum. The lighting was a little tricky there as well with the high ceilings but everything turned out great! Congratulations Anna and Jay!

Columbus Ohio Wedding Experience 

The Columbus Ohio Wedding Experience is not your typical bridal show.

This is more of an event for engaged couples. I attended to photograph and videotape flowers Prema Designs. I also got the chance to take photos of some of the models from Romanoff's Classic Tuxedos. The event decoration and design was out of this world. I was like a kid in a candy store and didn’t know where I should start. I can’t wait to attend the next one!

Columbus Ohio Engagement Photos | Amanda and Mike

Sharon Woods Metro Park engagement photos with Amanda and Mike.

Amanda and Mike are a great couple to work with. We started at Sharon Woods Metro Park for the engagement photos. It was November but it didn’t turn cold yet. We found some great spots for their photos just walking around. We stepped on a dock near a pond in the park and all of a sudden 20 ducks flew out from under it. It was a little surprising to say the least. We traveled down the path and some walkways to find the spot where Mike proposed. I think all the photos turned out pretty well. Congratulations Amanda and Mike!

Athens Ohio Engagement Photos | Sarah and Zach

Athens Ohio in the fall is the best times for taking engagement photos.

This engagement photo session turned out great because of the leaves on the ground and the places we went. We started on College Green in the middle of Ohio University. We used the stairs at Memorial Auditorium and walked to several places around campus. We then traveled out to Strouds Run State Park for a few evening photos. The sunset was amazing! After that we went back to Athens for a few last photos on Court Street. Congratulations Sarah and Zach!

Nationwide Hotel Wedding Photography | Meredith and Bryan

Taking photos at Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center (formally NorthPointe) was one of the best weddings that I photographed last year.

Despite the rain the photos turned out amazing. We started at St. Peter Catholic Church where I photographed the dress and lit the stain glass behind it. The ceremony went great! I think Bryan almost shed a tear. After the ceremony we went to Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center for the wedding party portraits. The sky was a little overcast but it looked great for photos. I love the brick arches and the wind with the vale. The reception center pieces and sparkler send off was a great finishing touch. Congratulations Meredith and Bryan!

Columbus Ohio Wedding Photography | Kim and Deron 

Kim and Deron’s fall wedding in Columbus Ohio was a pleasure to photograph.

I am so lucky to have clients like these. We started the day at the Courtyard by Marriott and had Kim read the card that Deron gave her. She teared up a little and then we had some more fun photos taken of Kim and her maid of honor jumping on the bed in excitement. We then traveled to the Ohio Village for the ceremony. Kim wanted to give Deron a kiss and hug before the ceremony but didn’t want Deron to see her. They blindfolded Deron and put him in position. I really liked the photos from this moment. After the ceremony we went to Camp Mary Orton for the reception. Congratulations to Kim and Deron on your wedding!

Athens Ohio Engagement Photos | Erica and Anthony 

Erica and Anthony's Athens Ohio Engagement photos.

I always like having any excuse to go down to Athens. I went to Ohio University and loved every photography class I took. Graduating with a commercial photography degree was the best thing I could have done. You can probably see this in my work when it comes to lighting. This engagement session definitely put my lighting skills to the test. We started on College Green in Athens. We then moved around to some great spots around Ohio University. I tried a few different things and everything worked out great. The evening it started to rain so I had to think on my feet. I gave them my lighting umbrella and lit them up. The rain twinkled around them. I love these photos so much. We then went to Baker Center to dry off and then the Pigskin Bar for a few last second shots. ;) The marching 110 came into the bar to play because it was homecoming weekend. Congratulations Erica and Anthony on your engagement!

Ohio State University Engagement Photos | Julie and Andy

OSU Engagement photos with Julie and Andy.

Julie and Andy are a really fun couple. We started their engagement session outside the OSU football stadium. We then walked around the OSU campus visiting the Oval and Mirror Lake. I always like to highlight them giving the image a natural vignette. After that we traveled to Nationwide Blvd. for some evening photographs. Everything turned out great. I can’t wait for the wedding.
