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!

Samantha and Ben had an absolutely wonderful day planned and everything went beautifully. There was not one aspect of this day that did not receive a lot of thought, and it certainly paid off. From the flowers and shoes to the venue and guests, everything was great. Its days like this where my job is easy... almost too easy. Point and shoot. Hard to take a bad picture! Not only was the day great, but Ben and Sam were very welcoming to my brother and I and made us feel like family. Ben even bought me a 32oz. beer at a stop they made. I had to call in backup to finish it off. My brother and I had a lot of fun this day and wish the best to Be ...

These two had a perfect day for their outdoor wedding. Everything about the wedding was bright and sunny. From the flowers that Stacy picked for the bouquets, to the candy tables keeping guests sugar'd out! I love shooting outdoor ceremonies, and this one was no exception. A lesson to anyone wanting some really great photos.... be flexible enough to allow for a short photo session right around sunset. Most summer days it is fairly late and most of the formal reception activities are over. This is the BEST time to get some really dramatic photos due to the light. Michael and Stacy were willing to step away from the crowd, and I think they wil ...

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. ...
