Happy Anniversary, Carrie and Shawn!

Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary for Carrie and Shawn, who were married at a very famous national basilica in Carey, Ohio. Their reception was at the Burgundy Room here in the Short North. Not a place I usually shoot wedding receptions, but I have to say, having it jam-packed with people made it tons of fun! Here are a few shots to commemorate their day!

Happy Anniversary, Carrie and Shawn!

Shawnda's Maternity

This past Wednesday I had the great pleasure of shooting maternity images for one of my favorite brides, Shawnda, who's due to deliver Kendal Mae on June 10. We had a great time catching up and spending time together and I think we got some pretty darn good images to show for it too!

Here are a few of my many many favorites from our time together:

Happy Anniversary, Jacque and Jeremy!

A year ago today, Karen and I had the honor of photographing Jacque and Jeremy's wedding. It's hard to believe a year has gone by since we spent the day with them! We wish them nothing but the best on their annivesary and for years to come!

Lindsey and Morgan

On May 3, Melissa and I had the great pleasure of photographing Lindsey and Morgan's fabulous wedding at Morgan's parents' house in Bexley. Despite the weather alternating between sunny and stormy, they were successful in having their ceremony outside in the sunken garden. The entire day went off beautifully, from getting ready in the fabulous master bath, to the great cocktail hour and Ketubah-signing, and then the very touching ceremony and uber-fun reception. A great time was had by all and we were privileged to photograph every bit of it!

Here are a few of my many many favorites from Lindsey and Morgan's day:

I love this shot of the detail in Lindsey's cocktail dress and her gorgeous ring!

And how adorable is Lindsey here?!

This is Morgan's mother. I have to say, they have the most beautiful house I've ever been in!

Morgan and his father assembling the chuppah.

The house was filled with amazing art, and Melissa grabbed a shot of this statue inside the front door.

The beautiful Ketubah.

Melissa got this great shot of Morgan and Lindsey making their way back up the "aisle".

Morgan's grandma is 99 years old and she danced all night! Way more than I could have!

The scrumptious treat table.

I just love the way Morgan is looking at Lindsey here!

Invariably, a guest will want to take MY picture! Yikes! That's why I'm on MY side of the camera!

OK, this guy was hilarious and had these really funny poses, much to the chagrin of his companion!

Happy Anniversary, Jill and Tim!

Today marks the one-year anniversary for Jill and Tim who were married at North Broadway United Methodist Church in Clintonville. Their reception was at Taylor Mansion, but not before stopping and sneaking into OSU Stadium for a quick picture before being kicked out!! Here are a few images to commemorate their anniversary!

Happy Anniversary, Jill and Tim!

I heart NY

Well, here's something I don't ordinarily do. At the beginning of the week, my brother and I took a short roadtrip to New York to tour Yankee Stadium and see them play the Indians. I love NY but have never been to a Yankees game. It was very very fun and the tour was awesome. The shots of the game were taken from our seats, which were only 11 rows up from the field and just a little beyond first base. Unreal! We spent a little time wandering around the city, but mostly the trip centered around the Yankees since this is their last year in Yankee Stadium before it's torn down. Couldn't let the stadium go without recording some of it and seeing a game! Here are some shots from the trip:

This was taken from the press box during the tour.

Trinity Episcopal Church. Love the banners!

Wall Street

This is the church directly across the street from where the World Trade Center stood. Out front was a completely destroyed tree which actually saved the church from any damage whatsoever. Not one broken window, nothing. Amazing.

How many people does it take to water the dirt?

Don't even ask me who these people are.

Souvenirs, anyone?

Didn't turn out like we'd hoped, but it was fun anyway!
