Cindy and James Wedding in Athens Ohio

Cindy and James are a great couple. I talked to them a few weeks before their wedding about getting on the Ohio University Football Field at Peden Stadium. I made some calls got a hold of someone that might be able to get us on the field. He told me a week out that he could not get anyone to let us in. The day of the wedding we go outside the stadium to get some photos from the outside. To our surprise the gate was open! We were so happy to get on the field and we got some great photos from the field and the stands of Peden Stadium.

We started off the day at the Ohio University Inn to get photos of the wedding party getting ready. We then headed to Galbreath Chapel for the ceremony. I loved the photos that my wife Jenna got from the balcony of everyone at the ceremony. We headed out on College Green for a few portraits.  We all headed down to Peden Stadium a got some great shots. The reception was at the OU Inn and I set up a slideshow from the best photos from that day and everyone loved it. Below are a few of my favorite photos.

Cindy and James - Athens Ohio Engagement Session

Cindy and James are a great couple. I photographed their engagement session in October and realised I forgot to blog about it. We traveled around the campus of Ohio University while I captured them flirting with each other. I love engagement sessions so much. There is no stress on time and cute couples are easy to photograph. I had a lot of fun hanging out with them and below are a few of my favorite shots from the engagement session.

Stephanie and Jim's Wedding Photos - Galbreath Chapel

This past Saturday I photographed Stephanie and Jim’s wedding. It was wonderful from going on to the football field for portraits to their very elegant fist dance. It was a perfect day with just a few clouds in the sky. We started out at Raphael’s Aveda Salon in Athens. I got a call from my fiancee trying to find parking as Stephanie walked into some wonderful light in the salon. I started taking photos as I was directing my fiancee Jenna to some parking. This multitasking with the cell phone and camera made Stephanie have the greatest laughing expression on her face. It was pretty funny that I think about it. My camera going rapid fire as I am on the phone. It’s like the pavarazzi on cell phones. We then headed to Galbreath Chapel to get ready. The ceremony was beautiful. There was a wonderful sunlight lighting up everything in the chapel. The wedding party was great smiling in the background during the ceremony. After the ceremony we went on to College Green for some shot of everyone walking around. The wedding party took the Ohio University Bus to all of their portrait locations. We went on down to Emeriti Park and decided to go to Peden Stadium. This was a first for me to take the wedding party on to the Ohio University football field. We had a great time right on the 50 yard line. We did have to dodge a soccer team playing a scrimmage but it turned out great! We then went to the Ohio University Inn for their reception and awesome first dance. I got the slideshow of photos from that day on my laptop up and running and everyone was complementing me. It was so much fun everything turned out great!
