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 ­čÖé 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!

Megan + Kirby
Megan and Kirby got married on a beautiful sunny day in Columbus, Ohio. Their ceremony took place in Dublin and their reception was in Hilliard at Heritage Golf Club. Last year I photographed Megan's sister's wedding, which was held at the same locations.  So, I put a little pressure on myself to shoot this wedding as well as I did last year, but give them completely different photos, while still maintaining my style. We had an amazing evening and were able to get out at sunset for some awesome shots. The light was great and the clouds were puffy and white.  Congratulations to you two! ...

Mike & Sarah
Mike and Sarah were a joy to shoot. It is not often that I show up and find a bride and groom completely calm. They were relaxed all day, and I think that was part of their plan. They were saving all of their energy for the party later on. I was warned about a few of the guys... and they did not disappoint :) It is always a blast to stick around to the end when everybody is enjoying themselves. Thanks again guys for such a great day. So glad I could be a part of it!

Lauren and Eric – Perrysburg
It was a cold Sunday morning. The thermometer read 28 degrees. But, after factoring in wind chill, snow chill, river chill, and cloudy chill it felt more like -28 degrees. The cold air did not freeze the hearts of all of those at this intimate ceremony and brunch. This was a very low key wedding, held in an amazing apartment living room in downtown Perrysburg. About 20 people came to share the moments with Eric and Lauren. It was a great setting for these two to seal the deal. We were able to slip outside twice for some photos. The ladies were wonderful and did not complain as much as they should have with their shoulders bare and all. Finger ...
