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.

Columbus Ohio Wedding Photographer | Courtney and Matt

Columbus Ohio Wedding Photographer

Courtney and Matt’s wedding was so much fun to photograph. I am so lucky to have the opportunity to photograph such a great couple. I first started at Courtney’s parents house. I love the moment when Courtney’s mom is helping with the dress and when all of her bridesmaids see her for the first time. After they got ready I went on over to the guys for some portraits beforehand. The ceremony was held at St. Brendan Catholic Church and went great! After the ceremony we went to Heritage Golf Club for the rest of the portraits. Despite a little bit of rain that day the portraits came out wonderful. Congratulations Courtney and Matt!

Athens Ohio Wedding Photography | Megan and Jake

Athens Ohio is my hometown. I always enjoy shooting weddings there. I had the pleasure to photograph Megan and Jake’s wedding this past year in Athens. We started at the First Presbyterian Church on court street. Megan had the most unique bouquet from Passion Works. After the ceremony we went to College Green for a few more portraits. We then walked to a local Athens bar called The Pub. The reception was held at the OU Inn and had a group photo taken of everyone that went there. Congratulations Megan and Jake!

Columbus Ohio Wedding Photography | Ruth and James

I love the way this wedding turned out. We started at the Hilton Hotel at Polaris. The photos of Ruth reading a card from James is priceless. I also really liked when Ruth showed off her veil inform of the window. Once everyone was ready I moved on to the guys. I liked the fact that all the groomsmen had different colored socks and a pair of sunglasses to boot. After the ceremony at the Makoy Center we went to Homestead Park to take some photos under the covered bridge. Congratulations Ruth and James!

Wooster Ohio Engagement Photos | Betsy and Quinn

I had the pleasure to photograph Betsy and Quinn engagement session in Wooster Ohio this past year. They met when they went to college there and were both music majors. They know the staff that work there so we had the music building to ourselves. I found a few spots that worked really well. The piano, the chalkboard, and the theater worked out great. We then had a few shots taken in the evening. I even lit up the music building myself to have it aluminate in the background. Congratulations Betsy and Quinn on your engagement!

Columbus Ohio Engagement Photos | Whitnee and Eric

Whitnee and Eric on their engagement session were great to work with. I fist met Whitnee at the Brookside Golf Club bridal show. She was the lucky winner that was selected for a free engagement session. We went to Alum Creek Lake for the first part of the engagement session. They brought balloons, their cute dog, and a wooden sign with their wedding date on it. The engagement session went great! I found some great spots that worked very well despite the bright sun. After the park we went to Delaware, OH to have a few more photos taken of the street there. Congratulations Whitnee and Eric on your engagement!
