Memorial Day Weekend With My Family

I’m in Washington D.C. visiting my family this Memorial Day weekend. My brother David came to Washington D.C. to visit our family here along with our grandmother. It was really nice to see all of the visiting family including all of my nieces and nephews. The last photo on this blog post is all of the family (23 of them) that came on over for the party. Here are some of my favorite photos from the weekend so far.

Cara and Chris's Columbus Ohio Engagement Session

I had a good time with Cara and Chris during their engagement session. They are both LOST fans so we had to reschedule the night session for Monday instead of Sunday night. It was also good to talk to them after the final episode. We both said we are going to revisit the entire series sometime in the future. We started at the Franklin Park Conservatory for the day session and then went to some of my favorite locations around Nationwide Blvd and the Short North for the evening engagement session. Here are a few of my favorite shots.

Regina and Nick's Columbus Ohio Engagement Session

I was really happy to photograph Regina and Nick's engagement session especially since they had a lot of places in mind they wanted to go. I guess it is good to break an old routine and try a few new places in Columbus a night. I do like Nationwide Blvd. at night because it is nice and safe but there are some beautiful places in Columbus I think I might cover from now on. We started at Schiller Park in German Village then went to the Riverfront, Broad and High Street, and finished on the OSU campus at night.  Here are a few of my favorite photographs from their engagement session.

Lindsey and Robert's OSU Engagement Session

Lindsey and Robert are definitely a real fun couple. They were all smiles during their engagement session. It was really nice to photograph them flirting and enjoying a break from their busy schedule to be with each other. We started at a historical barn in Dublin Ohio for some wonderful shots. We then traveled to OSU Stadium for a few more engagement photos. For the night session we started at Nationwide Blvd. then went to the Short North archway and ended up at Jenny's Ice Cream.

Amanda and Jon's Engagement Session

This past weekend I had the pleasure of covering Amanda and Jon's engagement session. They got a little lost around the Franklin Park Conservatory but other than that it went pretty well ;) I got some great shots at the Conservatory inside and out. The night session also went really well. We started on Nationwide Blvd. to capture a wonderful sunset. Check it out and leave a comment.

Brooke and Jesse's Engagement Session in Cincinnati

I had a wonderful time photographing Brooke and Jesse's engagement session in Cincinnati this past Monday. I love covering new locations for engagement sessions. Brooke and Jesse both grew up around Athens just like me. They are also Ohio University Alumni. Whenever I meet someone from OU they are always fun and outgoing just like Brooke and Jesse. I had a wonderful time going around the city taking photos in gorgeous locations. We started at Eden Park mirror lake and also found a part of the park that overlooks the river and the city. We then traveled to Hofbrau Haus in Newport for dinner. They have some of the best beer I have ever tasted. After dinner we traveled to Devou Park in Covington, KY for a few night shots overlooking the city. The night photos where some of the best night shots I have ever taken. We then traveled back to Newport for a few photos on the escalator to complete the night.

Lindsay and Stephen's Wedding at Creekside Conference and Event Center

I was thrilled to cover Lindsay and Stephen's wedding this past weekend.  Lindsay and Stephen were fun to work with and I got to cover my local Creekside Conference and Event Center here in Gahanna. We started at Charles Penzone in Dublin for Lindsay's hair appointment. We then traveled to the Northwest United Methodist Church for the ceremony. We then traveled to Creekside Conference and Event Center for the reception. Everything turned out great and the rain held off so we could get a few photos after the reception. Congratulations Lindsay and Stephen!

Ben Proposes to Nikki under the Nationwide Blvd. Archway

I recently got to photograph a marriage proposal and it turned out perfect. Ben contacted me a week before he was thinking about proposing to his girlfriend at the time. He told me his plan beforehand. I has going to pretend I was from a local newspaper and take their photo in front of the archway on Nationwide Blvd. Then he would propose to her as I was snapping away. It could have been any better. Congratulations Nikki and Ben!

Elizabeth and Van's Wedding at the Pinnacle Golf Club

I had a lot of fun photographing Elizabeth and Van's Wedding this past weekend. We started at the Pinnacle Golf Club to get some photos of Elizabeth and Van getting ready and meeting for the first time that day. We then headed on over to St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Grove City for the beautiful ceremony. After the family shots we headed back to the Pinnacle Golf Club for the reception. I love the shots of Elizabeth and Van putting on the green and all the guys with their jackets over their shoulders. It was a great wedding to photograph. Congratulations Elizabeth and Van!

Katy and Bill's Wedding in Maria Stein Ohio

I loved photographing Katy and Bill's wedding. They had a really great bridal party that had fun and danced the night away. One of the best group of people I have worked with. We all started at the Confetti Salon in Coldwater, Ohio then travel to St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Maria Stein, Ohio to get ready. The Ceremony was beautiful. We traveled to Katy's house and a few local bars to get some shots. We had the reception at Romer's Catering in St. Henry, Ohio. Their first dance was very beautiful with all of their family members looking on. One great wedding.
