Tiffany and Kurt's Ashland Ohio Wedding

 Tiffany and Kurt a great couple that absolutely love each other no question about it. I was very honored that Tiffany chose me to be her wedding photographer because Tiffany photographs weddings as well. When I had to choose my wedding photographer I was very picky and took some time to find someone that has a style like mine. Tiffany and Kurt were so wonderful to work with. When I displayed to photos at the reception Tiffany was so delighted and pleased to see some of the best photos from that day. I love shooting weddings and viewing other people’s reaction when they see their wedding photos is priceless to me. We started the day in Ashland Ohio salon Toppers. I got a few nice photos of Tiffany getting her hair done. After that I went to the Trinity Lutheran Church on Center Street to photograph the guys getting ready and headed down to the track field. Kurt is a state champion in shot put so I wanted to incorporate some dramatic images with the track equipment. I couldn't be more pleased on how the images turned out. When Kurt saw the images on my laptop at the reception he loved it. We traveled back to the Trinity Lutheran Church for the ceremony. My wife Jenna captured a wonderful photo of Tiffany's father kissing her head right before they walked down the aisle. This is one of the many reasons I love Jenna shooting beside me. After the ceremony we found some train tracks and I got some wonderful shots with the sunset in the background. The reception was at a barn and I loved all the little details outside and in. The lights were old fashioned large bulbs, cards for people to write their wishes for the couple and clothes pins to hang them on a string afterwards. It was a photographers dream. Below are just a few of my favorite images from that day.

Emily and Ryan's Wedding at the Columbus Greek Orthodox

Emily and Ryan's Wedding was one of my favorite weddings of 2011. Every photo looked like it was portfolio worthy. I think I might make a studio sample album out of this wedding. We started at the Hampton Inn on High street to photograph Emily getting her hair done and a few dress photos. I also love to do commercial work with gifts when ever I get a chance. I had the opportunity to do this with the perfume that Emily received as a gift. I really liked how it turned out. We then traveled to the St. Francis of Assisi Church. The church had such a wonderful glowing light to it from the stain-glass windows on the left hand side. It was perfect because I never use flash during the ceremony. After the ceremony we went to Goodale Park for a few portraits. I took one of my favorite photos of 2011 here. I might get a copy for my wall. When we were walking around the reception hall for a few last second portraits and I was so glad we did. I captured another great photo with the Short North sign in the background along with and beautiful sunset. We arrived at the Greek Orthodox Church Reception Hall and I set up right away for the first dance. I put a remote flash behind them and got some great photos out of that as well. You will be able to view some of my favorite photos from the wedding below.

Kaylan and Kevin's River Club Wedding

I really enjoyed Kaylan and Kevin's Wedding at the River Club at Confluence Park. The view was spectacular! The food was amazing and Kaylan and Kevin were a lot of fun to work with. We started to get ready at the Overbrook Presbyterian Church on 4131 N. High Street. The ceremony was beautiful and I got some great photos of the flower girl along with their exit from the church. We then traveled to Nationwide Blvd Arch Park. The photos that I got from here are some of my favorite from all year. I love it when the entire wedding party lines up and I tell them to start laughing at each other. It breaks the ice and everyone has fun doing it. When then do all the other fun shots along with some romantic photos of just Kaylan and Kevin together. We then went to River Club at Confluence Park for the wedding reception. As I said before the view was awesome and  the reception was fantastic. I back lit their first dance and loved it. The staff at the River Club were great as well. I just wish I had more weddings there because there are so many portrait locations I would love to try. Below are just a few of my favorite photos from their wedding. Congratulations to Kaylan and Kevin on their new life together!

Bridgewater Event and Conference Center Weddings

Bridgewater Event and Conference Center is great for weddings. I have been here multiple times for weddings, Wedding Professionals of Columbus meetings, and bridal shows. The facility has plenty of room from the upstairs hall, the brides getting ready room, and the large ballroom that can seat up to 600 guests. The large bar in the back also gives guests enough room to socialize at the bar or get a quick drink. The space also has optional projection screens for viewing a slideshow of images of the bride a groom growing up. The dance floor in the center of the room has color changing LED lighting to add to the atmosphere. When the guests are all on the dance floor they hit these lights and everyone cheers because is quite a light show.

Liz and Matt's Oglebay West Virginia Wedding Photos

I travel to my wife Jenna's home town (Bellaire, Ohio) every once an a while to visit family and about twice a year to shoot weddings at Oglebay West Virginia. Oglebay is so beautiful. There are so many great portrait locations around the garden it is perfect for weddings. Also during the winter they have their wonderful Christmas light tour. We started the day at Oglebay's Wilson Lodge to photograph the dress. We then traveled to the middle garden with a reflecting pool. The weather was perfect and couldn't ask for a better location. Here are a few of the best photographs from the wedding.
