Athens Ohio Wedding Photography | Jenni and Justin

Athens Ohio Wedding Photography Ohio University 

We started the day at Galbraith Hall as Jenni was getting ready for the wedding. When it started to rain I didn't think much of it and I always have a backup location for portraits in my mind just in case of bad weather. Well it rained so hard right before the wedding streets around the hotel guests were staying in flooded. Jenni and Justin had their first look and we got some portraits done at Memorial Auditorium looking over the downpour and College Green. There was a break in the rain so the family got through the flooded street with the shuttle bus. After the wedding the weather cleared enough for the wedding party to get photos on College Green. We then headed on down to Walter Hall for the reception. I will definitely remember this wedding for quite some time.  

Athens Ohio Wedding Photography | Megan and Jake

Athens Ohio is my hometown. I always enjoy shooting weddings there. I had the pleasure to photograph Megan and Jake’s wedding this past year in Athens. We started at the First Presbyterian Church on court street. Megan had the most unique bouquet from Passion Works. After the ceremony we went to College Green for a few more portraits. We then walked to a local Athens bar called The Pub. The reception was held at the OU Inn and had a group photo taken of everyone that went there. Congratulations Megan and Jake!

Athens Ohio Wedding Photographs - Natalie and Jordan

Last month I got to go back to my hometown of Athens to photograph Natalie and Jordan's wedding. I always like going back to Athens and take a break from Columbus and have some great Athens food. I first arrived when Natalie was getting her hair done at the Ohio University Inn. I then traveled to the Walter Hall Rotunda to take a look at the ceremony site. Everything was transformed from a nice looking room to a perfectly decorated ceremony. After the ceremony we went to College Green for some photos and then walked to Baker Center for the reception. Congratulations Natalie and Jordan!

Ohio University Inn Weddings - Athens, Ohio

 

Ohio University Inn is a great venue for Athens Ohio weddings. The venue is located with in walking distance from the Ohio University Campus off of Richland Ave. Their back patio is newly remodeled with a dark stone that cuts down on glare and looks great. The ballroom has plenty of space for most weddings. I always love to go back to Athens for weddings because my parents still live in the area and it will always be my hometown. The location is great for guests that want to stay the night and not worry about driving. The Ridges, Peden Stadium, and College Green are just a short drive away from the hotel. When you are looking to have your ceremony or reception in Athens you have to check out the OU Inn. It is one of the best venues in Athens, Ohio.

Katie & Justin's Wedding at Galbreath Chapel in Athens, Ohio

Katie and Justin are one of my best clients of this year. They are such a great couple to work with. I love Athens, Ohio weddings so much because everything is so close to each other and there are so many locations around campus that are just beautiful. The weather for the wedding was perfect and we even had Rufus (the Ohio University Bobcat) join us for a few portraits. We started the day at the Ohio University Inn for the wedding dress photos along with a few getting ready shots. We then went to Emeriti Park for a few portraits with Rufus. The ceremony was held at Galbreath Chapel on the Ohio University Campus. I love that the light shined down on their hands during the ceremony. After the ceremony we went to a few locations. We covered College Green, Ellis Hall, Alden Library, and finished up on Court Street. The reception was held at the OU Inn and everyone had a blast!

Laura and Josh's Athens Ohio Wedding

I had the pleasure of photographing Laura and Josh's wedding in Athens, Ohio this summer. We started at the Standard Salon to photograph the beginning day as all of the bridesmaids and Laura get their hair done. We then headed on over to the Ohio University Inn to get ready. The ceremony was held at Christ the King Catholic Church. This is one of the best churches in Athens because of the unique lighting. I loved the ceremony. We then traveled the Ohio University College Green for the fun and intimate portraits. The photos turned out great! We headed to the CI bar on Court Street for a few fun portraits and then went down to the reception at the Ohio University Inn. Below are a few of my favorite photos from the day.

Cindy and James Wedding in Athens Ohio

Cindy and James are a great couple. I talked to them a few weeks before their wedding about getting on the Ohio University Football Field at Peden Stadium. I made some calls got a hold of someone that might be able to get us on the field. He told me a week out that he could not get anyone to let us in. The day of the wedding we go outside the stadium to get some photos from the outside. To our surprise the gate was open! We were so happy to get on the field and we got some great photos from the field and the stands of Peden Stadium.

We started off the day at the Ohio University Inn to get photos of the wedding party getting ready. We then headed to Galbreath Chapel for the ceremony. I loved the photos that my wife Jenna got from the balcony of everyone at the ceremony. We headed out on College Green for a few portraits.  We all headed down to Peden Stadium a got some great shots. The reception was at the OU Inn and I set up a slideshow from the best photos from that day and everyone loved it. Below are a few of my favorite photos.
