Ashley + Chris

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 center and I will admit I was a little hesitant when I pulled up to the location and saw that it was in a strip mall. But the second I walked in the door I realized it had been completely transformed into one of the most beautiful reception halls I have ever seen. Crystals were everywhere. The flowers were amazing. There was a fireplace keeping people cozy. A photo booth keeping people crazy. A cookie table keeping people happy. It was awesome.

Really proud of this one!

Congratulations Ashley and Chris!

Andrea and Nick – Wedding Film
What a beautiful day. What a beautiful couple. What a beautiful way to celebrate their marriage. I had a lot of fun hanging out with these two... they are a special couple. I can only wish them the best! This is the second wedding film I shot this year. One of the things I love about weddings is that every one, although consisting of the same components in the same basic timeline, ends up being different. With photos that doesn't change my job too much. However, with motion, it opens the door for a multitude of directions to take when editing. You can elicit a different emotion depending on what you choose to keep in and leave out. The music ...

Brandi + Josh
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 ...

Jeremy and Amanda have things straight. I could sense from them early on just how important this day was. From the excitement beforehand, to the happiness when seeing each other for the first time, they were pumped. During the ceremony they had a great moment when all of the bridal party gathered around them on the stage and Chris Tomlin's 'Our God' blared through the sound system. It was a great choice, and signified their strong love of God. Jeremy and Amanda are also photographers who shoot weddings, so it was an honor straight from the get-go that they chose me. I will admit it makes it a little more stressful knowing you have some artsy ...
