Athens Ohio Wedding

Michelle and David - Ohio University Wedding

I love Athens weddings so much. I get to visit the town I grew up in and I get to do the thing I love, shooting weddings. Michelle and David's wedding was great. We started out at the Standard Salon then traveled to the Galbreath Chapel for the ceremony. I had some time to get the guys outside and walk around for some photos. The ring bearer was nice enough to wave to the guests and we had a wonderful ceremony. Michelle and David met while working at the Dining Hall so we had to get a few portraits before the reception. The photos turned out great and a few of my favorites from that day are below.

Dani and Blake - Athens Ohio Hilltop Wedding

Dani and Blake's wedding in Athens Ohio was wonderful. As I mentioned before I love outside wedding ceremonies. The clouds and blue sky were a perfect mix that day. Everything was perfect! I can't get over how great everything turned out that day. After the ceremony we went to Cat's Eye Saloon after to take some shots and then headed on down to the OU Inn for the wonderful reception. Blake and Dani are a great couple and I was proud to be a part of their special day.

Sabrina and Kent's Wedding at the Ohio University Inn

It was really nice to go back to Athens, Ohio for another wedding. The Ohio University Inn was a perfect setting for Sabrina and Kent's wedding. The weather was great and we also got to go to the Kennedy Museum at the Ridges for some beautiful portraits. Everything tuned out great. Below are a few photos from the Ohio University Inn and the portraits we took around the Kennedy Museum.

Brooke and Jesse's Wedding in Athens Ohio

I love Athens weddings so much. Everything is so close there is so much more time to take great photos on Ohio University Campus. It was also nice to see that Brooke and Jesse were featured in a article in the Brew Week Guide and the Athens Messenger. I got to introduce myself to their friends and family when I came to the rehearsal the previous day. I also got to see the groomsmen gifts were Converse shoes and I knew this wedding was going to be a lot of fun. We started on Saturday morning at Aveda Raphael's Salon on Court Street then went to the Richland United Methodist Church for the Ceremony. We then traveled uptown Athens for some great shots on College Green and a beer at Pawpurr's on Court Street. The reception was held at Baker Center Ballroom. During the end of the reception I got to show off the images that I captured that day on a projector that was already set up *photo*. It was really cool to see them that big. I also went uptown for Boogie on the Bricks and took a few more photos of Jesse and Brooke enjoying themselves.

Maureen and Chad's Wedding

I had a great time with Maureen and Chad this past Saturday. We started out at Raphael’s Salon on Court Street to get a few photos of Maureen getting ready. We then went to Galbreath Chapel to take photos of the dress and see the kids getting ready. Maureen and Chad looked great when they first saw each other and the ceremony was wonderful with all the decorations from A Lasting Impression. We took a few photos on College Green and went to Baker Center for the reception. All the decorations were perfect from the snowflakes lighting up the wall to the centerpieces. The Royales (a local band to Athens) got people dancing late into the night. Everything about the wedding was perfect!

Stephanie and Jim's Wedding Photos - Galbreath Chapel

This past Saturday I photographed Stephanie and Jim’s wedding. It was wonderful from going on to the football field for portraits to their very elegant fist dance. It was a perfect day with just a few clouds in the sky. We started out at Raphael’s Aveda Salon in Athens. I got a call from my fiancee trying to find parking as Stephanie walked into some wonderful light in the salon. I started taking photos as I was directing my fiancee Jenna to some parking. This multitasking with the cell phone and camera made Stephanie have the greatest laughing expression on her face. It was pretty funny that I think about it. My camera going rapid fire as I am on the phone. It’s like the pavarazzi on cell phones. We then headed to Galbreath Chapel to get ready. The ceremony was beautiful. There was a wonderful sunlight lighting up everything in the chapel. The wedding party was great smiling in the background during the ceremony. After the ceremony we went on to College Green for some shot of everyone walking around. The wedding party took the Ohio University Bus to all of their portrait locations. We went on down to Emeriti Park and decided to go to Peden Stadium. This was a first for me to take the wedding party on to the Ohio University football field. We had a great time right on the 50 yard line. We did have to dodge a soccer team playing a scrimmage but it turned out great! We then went to the Ohio University Inn for their reception and awesome first dance. I got the slideshow of photos from that day on my laptop up and running and everyone was complementing me. It was so much fun everything turned out great!

Galbreath Chapel Wedding Photographer - Katie and Eliot

I had a great time with Katie and Eliot this past Saturday in Athens, Ohio. Eliot and his groomsmen started at the Hocking Hills zip line course in Logan, Ohio. I wish I could have followed them but going from hill side to hill side might have been very difficult for me to shoot. So I started with Eliot at the Graffiti Wall in Athens. Eliot and his groomsmen painted it as a surprise for Katie as you can see in the photos below. I met up with Katie at the Standard Salon in Athens and we went back to her parents house to get ready. The ceremony was at Galbreath Chapel and had a Bagpiper (Jeff Linn) out front playing as guests arrive. The reception was beautiful and held the Eclipse Company Town. The bike path was also a great location for a few portraits by the railroad tracks. Best of luck to Katie and Eliot and their new life together!

Athens Ohio Wedding Photographer - Beth and Brad

I had so much fun covering Beth and Brad's wedding in Athens this past weekend. Beth and I started at Raphael's Aveda Salon as the guys started at Bagel Street Deli. We then went to the Ohio University Inn for some getting ready shots. We traveled to College Green, The Pub, The CI, and Baker Center. The beautiful ceremony was held outside on the Ridges lawn. It was a great day for a wedding. Enjoy the video below; I had a fun time making it.
