Heritage Golf Club Wedding - Ashley and Tony

I always get excited when I hear that the bride and groom have chosen The Heritage Golf Club for their wedding reception location. The staff there is great, the catering manager Jody is wonderful to work with and lets the bride and groom have their own golf cart to take a few portraits on the course. When the golfers pass they always say,"congratulations!" to the couple.

Ashley and Tony are a great couple. They are so easy to work with and everything went so smoothly. They also love to play tennis. They love it so much so we found a court near the ceremony location in Powell and had some fun photos taken there. 

We started our day at the B Rose Beauty Bar in Powell, Ohio for Ashley and the bridesmaids hair. We then traveled to the Saint Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Powell for the ceremony. There was a carnival set up in the lawn of the church for that evening. Both Ashley and Tony wanted some fun photos taken by it. I tried my best to find some shade and have it as a backdrop. The photos turned out great. After the ceremony we traveled to the tennis courts in Powell to have out photo shoot. We then went to Heritage Golf Club for the reception and wedding party photographs. We ended the night with a nice sunset on the balcony next to the ballroom. Congratulations Ashley and Tony!

Pinnacle Golf Club Wedding Video - Katie and Michael

I had the pleasure of photographing Katie and Michael's wedding at the Pinnacle Golf Club in Grove City a few weeks ago.  We then went to the Circleville Presbyterian Church for the ceremony. Everything worked out perfectly. The church had some beautiful stained glass that made a wonderful backdrop. The smile on their faces reminded me of my wedding day. We then traveled back to the Pinnacle Golf Club for the reception. We took a few more portraits at the Pinnacle before we entered. I was also happy to get a nice photograph of them and the sunset for a closing image to their album. Here is a video slide show of a few images from their wedding. Congratulations Katie and Michael!

OSU Campus Engagement Photographer - Erica and Jarrod

I had the pleasure of being the photographer for Erica and Jarrod's engagement photography session this past October. I always like to roam around with couples that like the OSU campus. I have my fovorite spots but I am all ears when they sugest a new location. It might be a challage in new locations but I like it when I have to think on my feet. We started at the OSU football stadium and walked on campus to a few new bulidings I have not photographed before. We also went to the Oval, Mirror Lake, and a few other fun shots. Below are a few of my favorite photographs from the engagement photo session.

Cleveland Ohio Engagement Session - Amber and Darren

I had a great time going up to Cleveland, Ohio to photograph Amber and Darren's engagement photography session. We started at their home just west of downtown Cleveland. We then traveled to a Edgewater Park to get a great view of downtown Cleveland. I like how this shot turned out. I had to use my 200mm lens to make the city as large as I can and lit them with my flash and umbrella. After that we walked around and found some other great locations. Below are a few of my favorite photos from this engagement session.

Athens Ohio Engagement Session - Natalie and Jordan

I like that Natalie and Jordan wanted a winter engagement photos instead of a traditional fall or spring engagement session. I always like having an excuse to go down to Athens anyway. I grew up in Athens, went to college and met my wife Jenna there. I know posting this engagement session in the summer is odd but I just wanted to share a few of the images from the session because I think they turned out really well. 

We started on College Green, traveled through Baker Center, finished up around Emeriti Park. We then met back up at the College Gateway for some evening shots. I had a great time with them and I just covered their wedding so I hope to have that on my blog next week.

Las Vegas and Zion National Park - Personal Post

I had so much fun going to Las Vegas this past spring. I have been there quite a few times but this time my wife, friends and I went to Zion National Park. It was quite an experience. We hiked up Angels Landing. This trail was one of the scariest things I have done in my life because of the 1,400 foot drop off on both sides on the last 1/2 mile of the trail. Some experienced hikers don't even try the last half mile because it is so risky. The view at the top was worth it all. There was such a sense of accomplishment when I fished. 

Below are a few photos from Las Vegas Strip with dolphins at the Mirage, the Stratosphere that I jumped off of, and photos from Zion National Park.

Dayton Engagement Session with Mary and Logan

I traveled to Dayton, Ohio for Mary and Logan's engagement session. The props that Mary brought turned out great! We had an old frame, chalkboard, sidewalk chalk, and a few others. I'm glad everything came together and it was not too over the top or cheesy. We walked around the campus of Wittenberg University and found some great paths, rocks, and bridges that we used. I am really happy with all the photos.

Creekside Engagement Session with Ashley and Tony

Creekside is a great place for engagement sessions. There are not too many other photographers and people on the paths here so I am free to roam around. The woods are great contrast from downtown and it is easy for any couple to relax. The parking is always free with the garage so it makes it easy with all of my equipment. Can you tell I really like Creekside? We started the engagement session walking around the paths with Ashley and Tony. I always like the bridges and dirt paths in the back as well as the paved paths. It gets a little bit darker back there so I can control the light with my umbrella. After Creekside we met back up downtown and got some great shots of them on Nationwide Blvd. I also tried a few different things putting the flash behind them and have a nice blue sky above them. Below are just a few of my favorite photographs from that day.

Inniswood Columbus Engagement - Katie and Michael

I had a wonderful time with Katie and Michael this past June. We started the engagement session at Inniswood Metro Gardens in Westerville, Ohio. This is one of the best metro parks in Columbus. It is also a favorite for a lot of photographers. The flowers, brickwork, and waterfalls are just a few of my favorite elements to this place. After exploring the park we headed out and met back up at sunset. We started at Nationwide Boulevard to view the sunset. We then went up and down the street to find a few great spots. We then traveled to the Ohio Theatre because they like going to plays and their favorite play 'Wicked' was there on the marquee. I couldn't think of a beter ending to the evening.
