Jeremy & Hillary – Key Largo

Jeremy and Hillary were getting married in Key Largo… “would you be willing to shoot our wedding???”

hmmmm, let me think… I guess I could travel down to that dump for a day or two haha

What an awesome location for a little get away wedding. Small weddings like this are great because they really bring family together, and it feels all the more special. On a beach…. in June… in record high heat (yeah, record highs for Florida… you know thats GOT to be hot!!!) they got married.

I was also given the task of shooting a video for this wedding that they could play at the reception back in Ohio to show their guests what it was like.

I hope to go back soon!!! My wife and I fell in love with the 86 degree bath water they filled the Gulf up with every day.

PS….. if you are ever in Key Largo, do not drive the extra hours to see Key West. There are some very pretty houses (especially Ernest Hemingway’s) and some really cool old banyan trees… but for the most part it is a tourist trap. My two cents….

I am just now getting around to putting up some photos from the day. Although it was a HOT and sticky day…. everything went smoothly and they were troopers with the heat. One problem I came across was going from the 64 degree AC to 97 degree 100% humidity was not cool for the lenses. Had to sit my gear outside 15 minutes prior to needing in to order to allow the lenses to heat up and de-fog. Be ready for stuff like that! The sunset we had to work with this night was beautiful! Soooo glad we could take advantage of it

Wonderful day with Sara and Eric! The leaves stuck around really late this year so we were able to take advantage of the color while it lasted. Their dog-sitter met them at the park with their doberman, Diesel for a few photos. He even brought him to the reception to surprise her on the dance floor. That dog can dance! They were married at St. Mary's in German Village and had their reception at the Columbus Athletic Club. ...

This was the first wedding I have shot on New Year's Eve. If everyone is used to going out and partying for the holiday, you might as well have them do it at your wedding! We lucked out and had some decent weather temperature-wise, so we were able to take advantage of the outdoors for our wedding party and couple's photos. The ceremony was in Lancaster and the reception was in Columbus at The River Club. The club is right at the junction of two major rivers in Ohio and provides a beautiful view of the city. It was a great reception, with a live band for entertainment. Despite the power going out on the band at 9:30... and everyone wondering ...
