A Wonderful Wedding Review from Amanda

Amanda Tucker

Tucker Lacks Wedding

 

 

 

 

 

 

Brian was awesome! He was so pleasant, fun, and creative. From the beginning of the day to the end of the night, we had such a great time. We were looking for a photographer who would be able to take the traditional wedding photos, but mainly modern and creative pictures. And we found the perfect photographer! The pictures turned out amazing! I would recommend him to any and everyone getting married in Ohio!

Emily and Wayne's Engagement Session in Columbus, Ohio

I had the pleasure of photographing Emily and Wayne's engagement session around Columbus. We covered Franklin Park Conservatory during the day session with Nationwide Blvd, the Short North and OSU campus at night. I love covering new places and photographing the places I have been in a new way. Below are a few of my favorite photographs from the session.

Catherine and Billy's Athens Ohio Engagement Session

It was nice going down to Athens for Catherine and Billy's engagement session. It was really fun hang out with them capturing some goofy similes and walking around town. I visited a few new spots around Athens mixing it up a little bit. I am finding more and more these days that I should be shooting in different locations all the time. It is so easy to get into a groove of shooting the same shots because it is safe lighting. It is very refreshing to shoot in different areas around Athens and seeing that some areas are better than I thought. As a result of mixing up the locations this engagement session turned out awesome!

Brooke and Jesse's Wedding in Athens Ohio

I love Athens weddings so much. Everything is so close there is so much more time to take great photos on Ohio University Campus. It was also nice to see that Brooke and Jesse were featured in a article in the Brew Week Guide and the Athens Messenger. I got to introduce myself to their friends and family when I came to the rehearsal the previous day. I also got to see the groomsmen gifts were Converse shoes and I knew this wedding was going to be a lot of fun. We started on Saturday morning at Aveda Raphael's Salon on Court Street then went to the Richland United Methodist Church for the Ceremony. We then traveled uptown Athens for some great shots on College Green and a beer at Pawpurr's on Court Street. The reception was held at Baker Center Ballroom. During the end of the reception I got to show off the images that I captured that day on a projector that was already set up *photo*. It was really cool to see them that big. I also went uptown for Boogie on the Bricks and took a few more photos of Jesse and Brooke enjoying themselves.

Dionne and Stefan's Graffiti Engagement Session

I had a great time with Dionne and Stefan. We went to the Franklin Park Conservatory, found a great place that has Graffiti, and also went downtown at night. I am always happy to cover new places I have not been to. It was a little dangerous but a lot of fun. Here are a few of my favorite images from the engagement session.

Amanda and Adam's Wedding at the Greek Orthodox Church

I really liked working with Amanda and Adam this past weekend. My wife Jenna got some great shots of the girls getting ready and some beautiful shots of Amanda walking down the aisle. Sometimes I forget how great it is to be in two places at once having two photographers. We started at Amanda's house then went to the East Side Grace Brethren Church for the wonderful ceremony. After the formal and casual photos were taken we headed on over to the Greek Orthodox Church on High Street for the reception. It was great being on High Street at night. I love the area for engagement sessions and never had a newly married couple out there. It was a ton of fun with Amanda, Adam and their whole wedding party.

Regina and Nick's Wedding at Creekside in Gahanna

Regina and Nick are one great couple. I had the most extravagant engagement session with them earlier this year. It seemed like we covered everything in Columbus. I was excited even before the wedding began. The florist was Bella Couture Events and was amazing. They had the coolest set up with bamboo holding the flowers at eye level for walking down the aisle. I also got to check on Creekside and everything looked great with the light blue accent. Everything was set to go for a wonderful wedding. We started at the Church of the Resurrection for the ceremony. We then proceeded to go to Creekside for some photos before they entered the reception. To everyone's surprise there was a mariachi band playing as the wedding guests walked in to the reception. The reception lasted until we all went outside to light sparklers and said our goodbyes to Regina and Nick the happily married couple.

Columbus Ohio - Trash the Dress Session

It was really nice traveling around Ohio to cover Katy's trash the dress session a week ago. It's good to get away from the city and view the rest of the state. I know it is flat farmlands but it's a good change of scenery and somewhat relaxing. You might recognize her from a previous blog post when I photographed her wedding earlier this year http://tinyurl.com/282o85b. We had a nice farm with some really high corn and some farm machinery to work with. I'm glad we had some darker clouds in the background to give the photos a very nice contrast. Below are a few of my favorite shots from the day.

Mylene and Kevin Wedding at the Hilton Polaris

What can I say about Mylene and Kevin's wedding... There were so many precious moments with so many great portraits I didn't want the night to end. I LOVED shooting their wedding. I truly do love wedding photography and I couldn't imagine doing anything else. I get to meet and work with some of the best brides that really want to have fun on their wedding day. Mylene and Kevin are a great fun couple that I loved working with. I loved capturing everything from her Dad seeing her for the first time to Kevin's Converse shoes her wore at the reception. There were so many great moments at their wedding. Below are a few of my favorite moments.

Anna and Brian at the River Club in Columbus

I had the pleasure to work with Anna and Brian last Friday at the River Club in Columbus. I had a great time covering a new reception location in Columbus. It was a perfect day without a cloud in the sky over looking downtown Columbus. We started at Perfect Image for hair then headed on over to the River Club for the ceremony and reception. We also took some great images at the near by railroad tracks. The images below are just a few of my favorites from the day.
