Backyard Wedding Photos | Aurora Ohio | Ann + Marco

I always love a good backyard wedding. Some yards are better than others, and this one happened to be the best I had been to for a wedding. I traveled north to Aurora, Ohio earlier this summer to photograph this RAD couple. Ann and Marco really loved the look and feel of the film and paid a little extra to have me shoot some black and white film, and I am so glad they did. I need to shoot black and white film more. I absolutely LOVE how the photos turned out. When you see B&W film, you can recognize it immediately. There is a feel to it and the images just pop off your screen. The Hasselblad is partly to thank for that, with it’s Zeiss lens, which does a great job at making 2D images look almost three dimensional.

We started at the Aurora Inn and got some great photos of the guys. The guys were even willing to hop down into the nastiest pool I have ever seen to get a few photos. Not sure if any of them wound up sick a few days later or not. After that, Marco decided it would be a good idea take about 1/8 inch off of his BMW M3’s tires to get a ‘burnout’ shot. Totally worth it 🙂 I am sure that fifty years from now there will still be a trail of rubber on that section of road.

After the boys were done, I headed to Ann’s parent’s house, where the wedding and reception were held. The setting was just perfect. A lot of work had been done out back to provide a great space for the reception to take place. I overheard someone say that the bride’s dad had spent over a year and a lot of money getting everything just perfect.

The day was also beautiful, albeit a touch on the steamy side. The evening was a lot of fun and everybody had a great time. I am not sure how many people at the party knew that Ann could play the drums, but by the end of the night, we all knew and knew she was rocking it. She played along with the band for a few songs and killed it! The night ended when Ann and Marco took off in a historic Bel Aire under the light of sparklers. Congratulations you two!

Wedding Video and Photography at Millwick in Southern CA | Jenn + Dan
Los Angeles is quite the character. Her streets always bustling, her people always moving, her buildings glimmering in the rising and setting sun. Some love it here. Some hate it here. Millwick is a gem in the center of its concrete heart. Being in Los Angeles is like playing golf. It has the ability to drive you mad, causing you to swear you will leave and never come back, but then a few moments later you will discover a charm that can be found nowhere else, which will leave you wanting to come back. You may play a horrible round of golf and then hit just ONE shot on 18 that is decent enough to make you smile and walk to the parking lot fee ...
Branden and Sol – Madison, WI
My cousin Branden and his bride Sol were married about a month ago in a very private setting. They decided they still wanted to have a party so they basically had a whole wedding day, minus the ceremony, for all of their friends and family to come and celebrate. Most of Sol's family is from Mexico, and about 40 of them made the trip up for the wedding. The Morgan family has music pumping through their genes... so there were definitely some times for that to be demonstrated. My uncle is a percussionist for the Madison Symphony Orchestra and Ryan and Branden are both involved in the band Misery Signals. Not for the soft of hearing. Branden's d ...
