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!
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.
