Franklin Park Conservatory Wedding with Kaylee and Evan

I had the pleasure for photographing Kaylee and Evan wedding at the Franklin Park Conservatory. The Franklin Park Conservatory is a wonderful venue with a lot of space outside and in. When night falls the Conservatory glows and I finally got a portfolio shot that I have been waiting for a long time to get. I started the day at the Franklin Park Conservatory before anyone showed up to take a look around the ceremony site in the Palm House to make sure everything looked good and take a look at the lighting. Kaylee arrived first and I got to photograph the dress hanging up beforehand. Once I finished that Evan arrived and I got to take him and the groomsmen outside for a few quick portraits by the artwork in the park. We then proceeded to go sign the Ketubah (Jewish marriage contract). After that we then had the ceremony in the Palm House. The ceremony was beautiful. After the ceremony we went outside to take the fun wedding party photos. The photos turned out great. During the reception we went out side for a quick portrait in front of the Conservatory. It is now one of my favorite photos of this year and on the front page of my website. Congratulations Kaylee and Evan!

The Boat House Wedding with Amie and Michael

I had a great time with Amie and Michael at the Boat House a few weeks ago. The Boat House was previously known at the River Club until it changed it’s name recently. The view of the city is amazing and very few reception halls like the Boat House has this view. It was my goal this time to get a great photo of the bride and groom with the city in the background and I finally nailed it. I started my day at the Marriott in Dublin, Ohio. I photographed the dress hanging up and took a few other photos at Amie was getting ready for the wedding. The rings with her shoes also came out great. I then traveled on down to the Boat House. I got some nice photos of the cake with the city in the background as everything was coming together. I also got some outside photographs of the wedding party before the wedding. The ceremony was beautiful and the reception was a lot of fun. I took them outside for one final photo of the Columbus, Ohio Skyline in the background. Congratulations Amie and Michael!

The Vault Wedding with Todd and Peri 

I was very excited this past weekend to photograph Todd and Peri’s wedding at the Vault. I have never been to the Vault before and couldn’t believe how great they decorated it. The trees and the logs of wood had a great winter theme to them. They gave the entire place a great feel. They lit everything almost entirely with candle light. It was very impressive. I started the day with Tom and him groomsmen getting ready and got a few portraits out of the way. As I was getting ready for the ceremony I noticed that the trees needed a little bit more light on them. I got my remote flashes and put them at the base of the trees. It made a world of difference. The ceremony went great with Damian with United Marriage Services officiating it. After the ceremony I played around with the lighting of the portraits outside and inside the vault door. You can see how well the portraits and the first dance came out below. Congratulations to Pari and Todd!
