The wedding of Jessie and JC

This weekend I spent my Saturday photographing the wedding of Jessie and JC. The first thing I need to say is Jessie was the smiliest bride ever! She was grinning ear to ear all day...I am sure her smile muscles were sore. It was also obvious how much in love JC is with his bride. These two are high school sweethearts and they are adorable together! The second I need to say is Jessie's sister is one talented lady. She made Jessie's wedding gown and it was amazing! What a special gift to be able to give your sister. OK, now that I got those to things out of the way...I hope you enjoy the pictures of their special day.
' Surrounded by love...JC is a very lucky man because it is obvious to everyone that Jessie will surround him with her love for the rest of their lives.

Love is in the air...

Yesterday I had the honor of photographing the wedding of Courtney and Ryan. The ceremony took place at Swasey Chapel which is on the campus of Denison University. The reception was the Creekside in Gahanna Ohio. Both locations were new to me since they were a couple of hours away from where I live. I wish they were closer because I LOVED these spots. The university campus was gorgeous and the chapel was stunning. But my favorite part about shooting this wedding was the couple themselves. There were so many personal elements throughout the whole day that really spoke about this couple and who they are. From Courtney's uncle being able to actually perform the marriage ceremony to heading to the baseball field on campus where Ryan played ball while going to school there... it was a day full of fun and memories! It is such a joy to work with such great people and their families. I truly am blessed with what I do. Here are a few from their day.

A shot from the pitchers mound. There was a tournament going on, but they were nice enough to take a break for a minute so we could take a quick picture.

A moment of reflection while Courtney waited to be bustled.
I thought this cake was so great and so personal! I want to remember this one for sure!

My favorite picture...because the look on Courtney's face just says "I AM IN LOVE!"
