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!

There is something to be said about a family that welcomes you into theirs as if you have known them your whole life. Although I had yet to ever meet this couple, or their families, they went out of their way to make my wife and I feel like we were a part of the gang. We were invited to their house in a plantation the night before and we had a lot of fun spending the evening casually with them. It's nice to be a part of such a special day when you don't feel like you are just a vendor, but a guest. It's days like these that make me think the world isn't so bad after all! The day went off without a hitch, despite a nasty storm cell threatenin ...

Kent & Sarah
My job was made very easy this day. Couldn't ask for a better looking couple. My brother and I travelled to Morgantown, WV to photograph Sarah's wedding, which was set in the heart of the Mountaineer's campus. They are still crying about Rich Rodriguez leaving them to coach Michigan... but with Rich's record against OSU... we were happy to see him leave. Dusk is always a great time to shoot and I always try to get some shots then... but most times dusk occurs halfway through the reception and I have already 'gotten' most of the photos earlier in the day... at this point anything I shoot would just be a bonus. But, when you step outside a ...

Kelly and Cameron – Norfolk, VA
First wedding of the year.... I have known Cameron for a long time, and when he asked me to shoot his wedding I was more than thrilled. I had never met his fiance, and was just as excited to finally meet her as I was to actually go to the wedding. Although it was a cold, semi-rainy day, you would never know it looking at the expressions on their faces. I could tell that these two really had a strong connection, and that they had all their priorities straight! Thanks again for letting me be a part of your day... I hope you had plenty of powder in Breckenridge!
