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.
A caring maid of honor can make your wedding day experience a comfortable one.
Now for the veil and final touches before we head out.
Mother-Daughter shot like this can make its way to the most coveted place in your mothers home.
Pamela is such a sweetheart. I love seeing genuine excitement for what's to come on her wedding day.
It's finally time! She approaches him and they kiss.
I love handing it over to couples so they can make their own stories happen.
We further explore the hotels premises looking for interesting locations. This happens to be a balcony.
These are left and right page of same album layout. Notice the laughter that shows through the kiss.
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.
Classy and simple shots to create timeless memories. Note how beautiful is the architecture surround our couple.
A step back from the action and everything gains intimacy like no other. Archways and pillars of Oberlin College are a perfect setting for a dance.
Time for a proud father to walk his daughter through this charming chapel.
That look he gives her as she approaches the altar.
This page really let's you appreciate how beautiful the location is.
The moment ring is being put on. I should probably mention by now that it's Brian's mother that's marrying her son and soon to be daughter in law.
Fairchild Chapel at Oberlin College was the best possible location for this ceremony indeed.
I love having shots like this one tightly knit. Perfect day, perfect light, perfect happiness.
The closest family members get the same attention in these group shots just outside the Fairchild Chapel
Sometimes the couple requests having this great group shot. It took up both pages of the wedding album.
We seize the moment and capture a few more images, just something different about how the couple looks after the ceremony from the time beforehand.
Another walking shot to finish up our shoot.
The arrival at the hall. It's common for newlyweds to cut their cake immediately after being announced.
Speeches are given and reactions are captured.
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.
Though taken earlier in the day we saved this beautiful gem for the finale of the book.
