Oberlin Wedding | Brian and Pamela


You can't mention Oberlin without thinking Oberlin College . When Brian and Pamela decided to take the next major step in their lives this location was dear to them. Enjoy this early fall wedding with a lot of love, unity, and affection.

Every man needs a wingman. Because both bride and groom were captured at the The Hotel at Oberlin it made it easy to capture everything with just me shooting.

A close-up shot like this is especially valuable to the groom, the bride and the parents. I have seen my images even make it to the Linked In profiles.

I prefer attaching the bridal party later in the process so they don't have to wait for bride and groom as I work with them. Oberlin is so beautiful, truly a gem of Ohio.

I know, why so many girls and just one guy? The response would be why not? We don't pick how many close friends we have.

Fairchild Chapel at Oberlin College was the best possible location for this ceremony indeed.

When creating a perfect album for my clients I get to have them select which shots they really want in the book after my picks are evaluated. I can't guess what's most important afterall.
