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!

Kauai, Hawaii Wedding Video and Photography | Melissa + Sam
I was so excited when Melissa and Sam hired me to shoot their Hawaii Wedding.  For one, I had never been to Hawaii, it is the only state I had not been to. Yep, I have been to all the other states, including Alaska. Me and 5 other guys drove a Honda Odyssey from Ohio to Alaska and back in 5 days back in 2006, but that is another story.  Besides getting to finally go to Hawaii, I was getting to go to what I have heard to be the best of the islands, Kauai.  Besides going to Kauai and shooting the wedding, I was going to get to hang out with them for the whole week and join them on all sorts of fun activities. Our first day had us viewing the s ...

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 ...
