We start our journey in not so distant past... 5-14-2016 Eric and Valerie

Updated: May 2

One thing you absolutely must have at any wedding is fun. It's not always you that will be having fun; sometimes it's your drunken uncle that will be having fun, kind of at your expense as he talks about you peeing your pants when you were 3. Nonetheless- From the giant keg of beer to the Cleveland Browns bus. Enjoy this wedding where everyone had great time (including me).


Bride and groom by the fire engine.
Eric and Valerie are an amazing couple sharing their love for people and each other. It's no surprise that Eric is a fire fighter and Valerie is a speech pathologist.

I love the genuine feelings that show during this time.  The morning of the wedding father and mother of the bride really show their love for the daughter
Bride's Morning. The feelings that mom and dad have for their daughter really show during these times.

So what we see here is that you really can't have anything without booze let alone your wedding :)

Vantage point is a must, as long as we have an opportunity to capture it.

bride and groom by fire engine
Not every couple can get photos by a fire engine, but a brave fire fighter can certainly arrange such a shoot for his lady.

I think the mother-son and father-daughter dances really stole the show here.

bouquet toss and garter toss
We throw the bouquet and finish up formalities. Hey, by the way, the screen you see in top right image is Kodak-Moments Same Day Slideshow that I do at weddings.

wedding festivities at the reception
Pro tip: don't get hit with a marital aid during the reception if someone launches it, yeah, it was me, I ran straight into it looking into the camera as it was flying by. Don't ask how it made it's way into the reception.

The finale shot should always be a wow shot. I thought ahead of the game here and captured it during the day. Through masterful camera work I made day look like an evening.
