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 tri ...

Ken and Sanjida – Engagement
Sanjida and Ken make a wonderful couple. When I arrived to Goodale I found them sitting on the bench under the big flowering tree. I don't know what kind of tree it is, but if I had to guess I would say it was a Magnolia, simply because thats the only flowering tree I know. We spent the evening walking around the park and meanderin ...

Phil and Lindsay
This was the first wedding I have shot on New Year's Eve. If everyone is used to going out and partying for the holiday, you might as well have them do it at your wedding! We lucked out and had some decent weather temperature-wise, so we were able to take advantage of the outdoors for our wedding party and couple's photos.
The cer ...

Vic and Natalie
I actually had classes with both Vic and Natalie back in my OSU days. Lots of Biology and Chemistry lectures have been shared by the three of us. Thankfully I don't have to worry about either of those subjects in my day to day work.
October is my favorite time of the year to shoot. The light has a unique look to it, and Ohio has ...

Brendan and Sara – Pittsburgh
This was an amazing wedding.
There are many 'types' of weddings, and if you were to tell me I could only shoot one type of wedding for the rest of my photography life, I would definitely say Sara and Brendan's type. From an amazing church on Pitt's campus (Heinz Memorial Chapel), to the the low-key reception at a local bed and bre ...

Anthony and Kelsey
Keeping the trend going for my weddings this year... it was SUPER HOT for Anthony and Kelsey's wedding. You would think September would bring low 80's... maybe high 70's. Try 97. Yes, I sweat through my shirt. I need to buy a black shirt.
Thankfully we live in an age when people live indoors and can control the temp.
The wedding ...

Matt and Elizabeth
Matt and Beth know how to have a good time. I travelled to Coldwater, Ohio for their wedding at the end of July and had a great time with them. Matt is quite a character, and has a face or expression for every moment of the day.
Both of them were all smiles and were able to enjoy some quality time with their closest friends. A bre ...

Marc and Katherine
Marc and Katherine make quite the classy couple.
I knew from our engagement shoot back in the day that they were going to have a lot of fun on their wedding day and they didn't disappoint. A lot of guests were there to witness them get married and have fun right along with them. Despite temperatures nearing those of the earth's co ...

Paul and Hilary
Paul and Hilary had a brilliant wedding with lots of fun and laughter. Hilary was beaming the whole day, and Paul had a smirk on his face like he knew he was getting the better half of the deal (no to take away from Paul... but she is gorgeous).
I had a lot of fun shooting this wedding, and the locations they chose for getting rea ...

Mike and Stacy
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 ...

Tom and Kaleigh
Tom and Kaleigh had a wonderful group of people surrounding them on their big day. It was great to see such a large crowd having so much fun all day and all night. I could tell how big of a day this was both for both of the families, and despite their limo driver heading to the wrong city (and I mean WRONG city.... 45 miles away wr ...

Jayce and Kristin
Jayce and Kristin.....
I knew from the very first time I talked with Kristin that I was going to have a lot of fun at their wedding. Jayce and Kristin love life... and are not afraid to have some fun. But, they were not all jokes. There was a real sense of how special this day really was. After Jayce teared up just standing next t ...

Kyle and Kellie – Hilton Head
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 ...

Pat and Audra
My second wedding of the year was fairly similar weather-wise to the first wedding I shot.... overcast and a touch of rain.
Just like the first one though, Pat and Audra didn't let that get to them and would never be able to tell from the photos that it was even on their minds. After seeing that all the bridesmaids were blonde, an ...

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 expre ...
