Erin and Randy were married at the beautiful Lake Forest Country Club in Hudson.  After the first look, we went outside for some portraits by the pergolas and lake. The ceremony was inside the country club. It was a heart-felt ceremony officiated by a friend of Erin and Randy. There were also some touching and funny toasts at the reception. Congratulations Erin and Randy!

Amy and Ken were married at Mentor United Methodist Church. They had a beautiful ceremony. We took out group shots at The Cleveland Cultural Gardens. We spent most of out time at the Italian and Hungarian gardens. Those are my favorite two gardens to shoot at because of all the options and different backdrops. There is also a good amount of shade, which helps a lot with lighting and keeping the bridal party comfortable.

The Reception was a Pine Ridge Country Club, with is also one of my favorite venues not he east side. The ballroom is a bright and open space with many windows and a huge dance floor. Towards the end of the evening, Amy, Ken and I went up to a hallway on the third level for a few more “couples shots.” It’s a cool spot to get some moody, silhouette style photos. The photos were backlit to help create the silhouettes.

Congratulations to Amy and Ken!

Last winter, Ann, John and I had an awesome engagement shoot at The 9. I was really looking forward to shooting their wedding. I started out photographing the ladies at Marengo Spa in The Old Arcade Downtown Cleveland. We then hopped over to the Marriott at key Center where Ann and the bridesmaids got ready. Basil was photographing the guys at Yours Truly downtown, before also going to the Marriott. The ceremony took place at the beautiful Granger United Methodist Church in Medina. We took bridal party photos on the Center Street Swing Bridge and the Riverbed St. Park in the Flats. The weather was perfect and the bridal party was a lot of fun to work with. The reception was at the Marriott at Key Center downtown. The ballroom looked spectacular. Ann and John had private first dance in the room before any guests entered. The reception was amazing, especially when Ann and her mom busted out a well choreographed dance routine to a great mix of songs. The guests went crazy. Afterward, we stepped outside for some shots in front of the Marriott and the Fountain of Eternal Life. It was a great way to end the night.

I began photographing the bridesmaids at Katie’s parents’ beautiful home. Graham was photographing Todd and the guys. Having photographed weddings for 10 years, it’s not too often I see something for the first time. However, Katie’s dress was something I had never seen before; A floral patterned print. It was unique and beautiful and it was perfect for her.

Katie and Todd were married at St Sebastian Parish in Akron. They set aside a good amount of time for photos after the ceremony. We shot at some areas on the church’s grounds and at a park across the street. We also shot at the Akron Art Museum, which is where they had their reception. After shooting outside, we wondered through the the galleries and took photos with some of the exhibits as a backdrop or prop. I was not permitted to use flash in the galleries, but fortunately, the lighting was pretty good. The museum is a great venue for weddings. It’s very unique and has a lot of great features for photography.

After sunset, Katie, Todd, Graham and I stepped outside for some night shots. I liked photographing outside the museum at night more than during the day. It has great architectural lighting and a lot of open space. Even though it was hot and sticky, Katie and Todd endured through the shoot and were excited about how the photos were turning up on the back of my camera.

The Sunrise Jones provided awesome entertainment throughout the reception. The guests were having a blast. Katie surprised everyone with a quick dress change. There was no doubt it was party time.

As always,  below are links the the vendors that helped make Katie and Todd’s wedding amazing.

Jessica and Robert got ready and had their first look at Beachmont Country Club. Right after the first look we took some photos on the golf course. The ceremony was at Park Synagogue East. We headed back to Beachmont for the reception. The ballroom was decorated beautifully. The party got started right away with the Hora before dinner. After dinner, the party kept going, thanks to a fun crowd and a fantastic band like Tony Quarles and the Discovery Band.. It was also great to work with Video Memories once again.

Congratulations Jessica and Robert!
