Athens Ohio Engagement Photographer - Marissa and Kevin

I had an awesome time with Marissa and Kevin in Athens. They are getting married in Athens, Ohio on July 11th

Their engagement session had some rain and wind but we used an umbrella for some great shots.

The wet bricks from the rain have such a great quality to them.

I think this shoot turned out great. We improvised with the parking garage elevator.

I can't wait to do this in Baker Center on their wedding day.

The top of the Athens parking garage was also a great location to shoot.

OSU Campus Engagement Photographer - Kendra and Brady

Kendra and Brady were a lot of fun during the engagement shoot. We started on the campus of OSU, covered Nationwide Blvd. and went to the Short North Gateway at night. The Short North Gateway is now one of my favorite locations to shoot. I love engagement sessions so much becasue I get to hang out with the couple before their wedding and have some fun going to different locations.

I like this shot that Kendra and Brady made up on the spot...

American Gothic with a photography twist instead of the pitchfork.

I like the bricks in this photo. It creates some nice leading lines that draw you into the subjects.

Franklin Park Conservatory Engagement Photographer - Tiffany and Rich

Tiffany and Rich are one great couple. We had some fun at the Franklin Park Conservatory for their engagement session. The sunlight was very nice in some spots just highlighting their faces and darkening everything else. I guess 4pm is the perfect time to visit. Their wedding is July 18th and I know it's going to be a lot of fun with these two.

 

 

I love this shot. The architecture, the wind blowing her hair and the clouds.

I just had my umbrella and flash to the left side and darkened up the sky. It turned out wonderful.

I love photography!

I love photography! I have had several engagement sessions with the most wonderful clients this year! I spend a few hours during the day photographing each couple joking around and having lot of fun. I also like to have a night session as I did recently in Athens. I always try to make the engagement session and their wedding lots of fun just by joking around and getting people to naturally smile. I am a journalistic photographer that loves to capture the connection between a couple. They can show love with their eyes so much more by looking at each other rather than looking at the camera and I like to show that in my photographs.

Ohio University Engagement Photographer - Stephanie and Jim

I had a great time with Stephanie and Jim in Athens. It was a lot of fun shooting their engement session during the day and night with them. I have done this with most of my engagement sessions in Columbus. This was the first time I got to do this in Athens and I had a blast. We went to the top of the parking garage, Baker Center, and few other great locations that look beautiful at night.

I loved the beautiful blossoms on College Green. I couldn't have asked for a better day.
