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).
We start our journey in not so distant past... 5-14-2016 Eric and Valerie
Updated: May 2, 2022
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.
Bride's Morning. The feelings that mom and dad have for their daughter really show during these times.
Wedding gown and details of wedding attire.
Love creating unique shots of the bridesmaids with the bride
Yeah, loooots of bridesmaids here... :)
I get a portrait of every groomsman with the groom.
You may recall thee movie Reservoir Dogs. This shot is inspired by it, but honestly, I've never seen it myself lol
So what we see here is that you really can't have anything without booze let alone your wedding :)
just another angle. gotta think like two photographers all the time.
I enjoy having all the walk-ins they really show everyones emotions.
Here comes the bride, notice how many emotions are running through everyones hearts.
That look.... Love outdoor ceremonies btw.
Got in soooo close, the ring shows perfectly here.
The kiss... This ceremony is in Olmsted Falls, OH
Yeeeeey! We are married!
All guests react to the newlyweds.
Bubbles will always be a fun way to greet the newlyweds.
My portraits CANNOT be boring, period. :)
These are best experienced as close-ups.
Olmsted Falls covered bridge
Vantage point is a must, as long as we have an opportunity to capture it.
Not every couple can get photos by a fire engine, but a brave fire fighter can certainly arrange such a shoot for his lady.
These are great shots. We do, however witness the power of alcohol in turning people red :)
CLE Browns stadium
Forget the boring shot, let's do something like this
Cleveland Browns Party Bus
Let it begin!
sort of self explanatory here...
The toasts, I love that moment she shed a tear.
If it was just one dance, who would you rather be with?
I think the mother-son and father-daughter dances really stole the show here.
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.
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.
