Hello Everyone! Today I am excited to bring you photos from a wedding I traveled to Warren, Ohio to photograph last weekend. The bride is a friend and client and I was really honored to be chosen to photograph her special day! The weather in Ohio was overcast most of my visit there. The weather the first half of the wedding day was dark and rainy. Fortunately the ceremony was planned to take place indoors but we had plans to take photos afterwards on the grounds of a beautiful golf course and I was worried this just might not happen. Miraculously the sky started to clear after the ceremony and by the time we arrived at the course not only was it not raining but I had perfect light and a beautiful sky for a backdrop as well! I will never get over how perfectly everything timed out!

First here are a few photos of the bride getting ready before the ceremony.

After the ceremony we took advantage of some extra time and stopped at Starbucks for a few minutes while the sky was in the process of changing into something more beautiful for us.

The reception was held at a restaurant overlooking the golf course and next to it was a small hotel with a piano in the lobby. Had the rain continued most of my photos may have ended up being taken here. The groom plays piano so I was really excited to be able to have the opportunity to take some images with it!

I really love these images! I felt compelled to make them black and white and give them the old Hollywood look I love so much!

On the other hand when I do color photos, as many of you many know I like them to be REALLY colorful and when we stepped out into the amazing late afternoon light I was greeted with stunning backdrops that looked like beautiful paintings! I pumped up that look a little in Photoshop but really they looked pretty amazing to begin with. We had a lot of fun and the wonderful personality of this couple just make my job almost too easy!
