Meet Sarah and Ted! Right as I sat down at the Starbucks we were meeting, I knew that this was a pretty cool couple! I think they have a really cool life story, especially how they met! I can't reveal too much, but let's just say they met through mutual friends who were dating but about to break up. They say that they don't photograph well. But after photographing them for their engagement session at Scioto Mile, I kind of don't believe them. I'll let you decide!
I wanted to do the shoot indoors since it's december and...really cold outside, but they convinced me to photograph them outside. Although it was cold, I think they were right to shoot it outside. I got some really good photographs! Thank you to my lovely assistant Paul Woo, who is currently in Kenya on a mission trip, I couldn't have done it without you.
Sometimes mid sentence photographs are pretty awesome
Huddle/Cuddle for warmth!
I rarely do silhouette photographs, but I snuck a couple in. I really like this one alot
You guys look pretty awesome in this one.
The bridge lights up at night with a whole bunch of LED's and this is the result. Some awesome photos!
In addition to the engagement session, they requested a design for a save the date! I had my good friend/designer Norman Ai do the design and he came up with this awesome Save the Date! They wanted to do a combined Christmas card and Save the Date. Good stuff!
Sarah and Ted, I look forward to photographing your wedding next year!
This break has been pretty busy in terms of work. Right after finals were over, life/work decided to dump everything on my plate. So far, this has been break for me:
shoot video, edit video, worship practice, meet with clients, shoot photographs, edit photographs, shoot videos, edit videos, meet with clients, worship practice, sprinkle hangout times, sprinkle in not much sleep.
As much as it is draining, I am grateful, thankful, and blessed to be doing things I love.
But, I need to really get some R&R in, so I am going on vacation for a week! I most likely have to do some work while I'm there, but I plan on sitting by the pool, read some books that have been sitting on the shelf collecting dust, and eating a lot of food!
This Christmas, I am not going to my parents since I have to prep for retreat. So this will be the first Christmas I spend alone away from family. It will be alright, because I need some time to myself to reflect on everything that has happened this year.
And to keep me busy, I bought myself some early Christmas presents. Yay! In addition to being a photographer, I am also a musician, so I bought myself a Akai MPK25 which is a synth machine. This enables me to produce and make music, so I'm excited to see where that leads! Also, I bought something for the business. A new lens! Yay! I haven't bought a new lens in a couple of years. It was time to update/upgrade. My clients deserve the best quality images and this new lens will help me do that.
Anyways, have a Merry Christmas from Boris Honeycomb and I. Remember why we celebrate Christmas (Jesus).
I headed up to the Canton area to photograph this beautiful wedding at Gervasi Vineyards. I didn't know a place like this existed! It was absolutely gorgeous!
Beth and Dan got married on beautiful crisp sunny afternoon under a beautiful pavilion. Behind them was a beautiful calm pond. It was pretty a pretty epic location for a wedding.
Beth and Dan: Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be apart of your day. I had a great time spending the day with you all. Best wishes and happy marriage!
The smucker video team working hard. These guys are good friends of mine and they are awesome videographers!
The sky was perfect that day!
What a beautiful bunch of ladies
Guys always having fun!
Natural backlighting. So beautiful
Love couples that can have fun. It doesn't always have to be serious!
I surprised them with a same day edit of some of the photographs from the day.
I was shooting at very high iso for this image on my 1d mark iv. The grain doesn't look that bad!
