Katie & Justin's Wedding at Galbreath Chapel in Athens, Ohio

Katie and Justin are one of my best clients of this year. They are such a great couple to work with. I love Athens, Ohio weddings so much because everything is so close to each other and there are so many locations around campus that are just beautiful. The weather for the wedding was perfect and we even had Rufus (the Ohio University Bobcat) join us for a few portraits. We started the day at the Ohio University Inn for the wedding dress photos along with a few getting ready shots. We then went to Emeriti Park for a few portraits with Rufus. The ceremony was held at Galbreath Chapel on the Ohio University Campus. I love that the light shined down on their hands during the ceremony. After the ceremony we went to a few locations. We covered College Green, Ellis Hall, Alden Library, and finished up on Court Street. The reception was held at the OU Inn and everyone had a blast!

Erica and Adam's Wedding at The Renaissance Hotel

Erica and Adam's Wedding was quite an experience and I was very happy to be a part of it. We started at Salon Lofts in Gahanna for Erica's hair and headed on over to Charles Penzone also in Gahanna. We did a few portraits before had so we had the "First Look" outside The Renaissance Hotel ballroom. They were so incredibly happy to see each other. We went to the rooftop of The Renaissance Hotel for a few portraits and started the ceremony. The weather was perfect and the ceremony was wonderful. After the ceremony we went to Nationwide Blvd and Genoa Park beside COSI to take a few portraits. They all turned out amazing. We then traveled to The Loft at Smith Brothers for the reception. The Loft is one of the most unique reception venues in Columbus for the fact you can look down from the upstairs down to the middle of the dance floor. Taking photos at this wedding was such a pleasure I wish I could do it all over again. Below are a few of my favorite photos from the wedding.

Jennifer and Michael’s wedding at the Four Seasons

 

I really enjoyed photographing Jennifer and Michael’s wedding at the Four Seasons in Hilliard Ohio. I started in the getting ready room photographing the dress and the guys getting ready. We started the ceremony inside the Four Seasons because the rain. Thankfully the clouds parted so we could go outside for a few portraits. I love the lake in the background and all the nice features outside. We then headed inside for the first dance and reception. The Four Seasons is a great reception hall.

Laura and Josh's Athens Ohio Wedding

I had the pleasure of photographing Laura and Josh's wedding in Athens, Ohio this summer. We started at the Standard Salon to photograph the beginning day as all of the bridesmaids and Laura get their hair done. We then headed on over to the Ohio University Inn to get ready. The ceremony was held at Christ the King Catholic Church. This is one of the best churches in Athens because of the unique lighting. I loved the ceremony. We then traveled the Ohio University College Green for the fun and intimate portraits. The photos turned out great! We headed to the CI bar on Court Street for a few fun portraits and then went down to the reception at the Ohio University Inn. Below are a few of my favorite photos from the day.
