Had my first wedding in Cleveland this season! I drove up from Columbus to photograph Annie + Anthony's wedding! After talking to them over Skype, I instantly knew that these two people were going to be a blast to photograph and easy to shoot. They got married at the beautiful St. Raphael Church in Westlake. The weather was perfect! The reception was held at Westwood Country Club. Both places were great to shoot in.
Thank you so much, Annie + Anthony, for letting me be able to come up and photograph your wedding. Best wishes to you both!
Last weekend, My buddy Grant Smucker (www.grantsmucker.com) and I went to Virginia to film a wedding! It's always a blessing to be able to travel for work. Usually I like to meet with clients before their weddings to get to know their story. For those who are far away, I try to set up skype sessions but with Luana and James, I was unable to due to busy schedules! Anyways, Luana found me through Gloria + Sam's video. Video is a new medium for me so I'm excited to see people satisfied with my work!
It was such a beautiful wedding. The reception was a blast! DJ EPX tore up the house and they partied till 1 in the mornnnningggg. Best set I have heard in awhile. Photography was done by a couple team SincereLi. These two have some great work and they are one of the nicest photographers I know! I had a great time talking with them about the industry. If you are in the DC area and need some photography, use them! They are passionate about what they do and they know their stuff.
Luana + James: thank you for letting me and grant be a part of your day. Even though it was only for a weekend I feel like we have become great friends! I'm so happy for you two! God bless
I'm off to Virginia this weekend to film a wedding with Grant. But before I leave I wanted to share with you a wedding highlight from last week! Sarah and Ted got married at the beautiful chapel at St. Charles Catholic prep school. That is where Ted actually went to high school. It was a very hot day but these two kept their spirits (get it!?) high and endured through it and had an amazing wedding!
Sarah +Ted, thank you for letting me spend time with you and for standing the heat with me! Blessings on you both!
Flats because Sarah said she is tall. I secretly think its for comfort! =)
Wedding day beer! Time to celebrate!
It was a hot day so you gotta apply that deodorant!
Moments before walking down the aisle.
Lighting was quite hard in the chapel. I think we were both shooting at 2000-3200 ISO. It was quite dark!
Some of Sarah's family came all the way over from Japan! I always give my client's attendees an opportunity to take some photographs!
Yes that's right. I combined a color with a black and white.
Favorite photo from the set.
Since it was a hot day, I suggested we stop by Jenni's to cool off. Who can refuse ice cream =)
Sarah and Ted decided that instead of a cake they were going to have cookies instead. Tons and tons of cookies.
