Emily and Ryan's Wedding was one of my favorite weddings of 2011. Every photo looked like it was portfolio worthy. I think I might make a studio sample album out of this wedding. We started at the Hampton Inn on High street to photograph Emily getting her hair done and a few dress photos. I also love to do commercial work with gifts when ever I get a chance. I had the opportunity to do this with the perfume that Emily received as a gift. I really liked how it turned out. We then traveled to the St. Francis of Assisi Church. The church had such a wonderful glowing light to it from the stain-glass windows on the left hand side. It was perfect because I never use flash during the ceremony. After the ceremony we went to Goodale Park for a few portraits. I took one of my favorite photos of 2011 here. I might get a copy for my wall. When we were walking around the reception hall for a few last second portraits and I was so glad we did. I captured another great photo with the Short North sign in the background along with and beautiful sunset. We arrived at the Greek Orthodox Church Reception Hall and I set up right away for the first dance. I put a remote flash behind them and got some great photos out of that as well. You will be able to view some of my favorite photos from the wedding below.
Lisa and Michael's wedding was a pleasure to photograph. We started at one of my favorite salons Charles Penzone in Dublin, Ohio. It is one of my favorite salons because of the space I get to move around. We then went to the Lifepoint Church in Dublin, Ohio for getting ready photos and ceremony. I always like to take photos of the dress hanging up at each wedding so I know I covered all the details of the dress. Lisa’s dress was very unique and my wife Jenna told me she loved it as she was taking photos. After the ceremony we traveled to the Coffman Park Pavilion in Dublin, Ohio for portraits and the reception. Below are a few of my favorite photos from the wedding. I love the photos of them with the clouds in the background. I try to do this technique at every wedding because I love how it turns out.

Amber and Daniel's wedding was a lot of fun. I love the fact that The Columbus Athenaeum is located so close to the Statehouse lawn. The Columbus Athenaeum is one great venue. I love the amount of space I got to work with. They lobby was well decorated and worked very well with the portraits. Here are a few of my favorite photos from their wedding.
