Wedding at The Lake Club - Bride on porch at Boardman Park

Wedding Video at The Lake Club | Youngstown, OH | Jenna + Ron

I traveled to Youngstown, OH for a Memorial Day weekend wedding. As you will see below, it was an absolutely beautiful day! The bride and groom were a joy to work with, and I am really proud of what I captured here! Everything wound up at The Lake Club, which was a fantastic venue.

Things started in a quiet neighborhood outside of town. The girls all got ready at Jenna’s parent’s house. I was able to capture Jenna’s interview on her back porch, with some lovely trees in the background. She read the card she wrote to him out loud since she was nervous about the interview. After this, I booked over to the church and actually delivered that card to Ron when I met him. We shot his interview out front, and he started by reading the card. I like the way the intro cuts together with her voice over the visuals of him.

The ceremony was in a really pretty church (St. Christine) with stone floors. Anytime I get away from carpet in a church I am happy! I was using a hacked Canon 5D2 to shoot Raw video for certain parts of the day, via Magic Lantern. This was the first wedding I tried it. It made me really nervous, not knowing if everything would turn out, but it did, and the footage looks great. Very sharp, and the color is amazing.

After formals at the church we went to Boardman with the bridal party for photos. This location is just awesome! The light was beautiful coming through the leaves. I was able to get some really nice footage of both the two of them, and the wedding party. Captured some funny moments of the group when they were unaware also!

From here we went to The Lake Club, which is situated on the west side of Evans Lake, ten miles south of Youngstown. The property is very pretty. There is a golf club there, but you wouldn’t know it with all the trees. There are steps leading down from the back of The Lake Club down to the water. There is a large green space all the way down to the lake. It is very picturesque and I had no problem finding some pretty shots of the two of them. We went out late at night and got some additional footage with lights twinkling in the background.

People in Youngstown love their cookie tables. This wedding was no exception. There was a LONG table, overflowing with every cookie you could imagine. Everyone gets a bag and fills up before leaving. Really cool tradition that is common in both Youngstown and Pittsburgh.

Congratulations to the bride and groom!  I wish you many years of happiness!

Had so much fun with these two! As you will soon see... their whole group was an absolute blast to hang out with. After the ceremony we headed to 'The Shoe' for some shots and after that they took a little break at a long standing popular bar at OSU, the Varsity Club, to get a drink and have a few nice toasts. The reception at the Columbus Athenaeum was beautiful. The toasts were really moving on one hand, and hilarious on the other... thanks to Josh's brothers raking him over the coals. Looking forward to seeing what these two do in the future! Congratulations! Songs: The Album Leaf: 'The Light' itunes.apple.com/us/album/the-light/id18 ...

I travelled to Youngstown Ohio (for the second time this year) to film Ashley and Chris' lovely wedding. The day started off on the sunny side, but took a turn for the worse just before the ceremony. Throughout the ceremony you could hear thunder booming outside. Due to the rain we were forced to shoot indoors, but I believe this was for the better! We ended up shooting at a beautiful building with plenty of big windows and natural light. We got some really unique shots that I otherwise would have never gotten if it was a nice day. The guys were hilarious together and provided plenty of funny moments. The reception was held at a banquet ce ...

Where do I begin? This was by far the most beautiful wedding I have ever been to.  I have been to California multiple times, but never to wine country.  It is without a doubt some of the prettiest countryside I have ever laid eyes on.  Sonoma was just fantastic.  By the end of the first night, I was already picturing myself living there.  If given the opportunity, I could easily pick up and move my family there without hesitation.  It is that nice.  I would most likely only be able to afford a yurt though... Amy and Jeff found me online and liked my work enough to fly me across the country to join them.  Every aspect of the day was perfectly ...
