Your day could be as simple and joyful as this
How many times did you have to try your best for everyone but yourself? How many times have you heard the instructions on how things should be? Well, there's a time in life when we all mature into realizing that what truly matters most is us, because if we serve up ourselves to those that surround us what are we left with? An empty cup. Greg and Lisa decided to do a simple and rustic wedding in Cleveland Metroparks, look at how much joy and happiness everyone experiences when they truly make this day about what they want.
Crafting creative images is not an easy task. Some people are charismatic and very emotional, while others are shy. There is an approach to everyone.
The wedding took place outside in the tents. Ceremony was on the steps of the building on the left.
Some elements of the wedding. It's fun how these tell us so much more about the day.
OOOOOk. I know, dad doesn't look too happy here. But is it really lack of joy or is it maybe worries and difficult feelings of letting his daughter go? We will never know, but I see a man that definitely loves his little girl.
That moment a bit of your happiness spills onto the guests. I love Greg here, he's truly enjoying this moment. She's happy to see him this joyful.
Amongst my most favorite shots are the ones taken over the shoulder. I guess it's because we can clearly see from this angle what is being experienced by people during these key moments.
That look truly excites me. I see a lady that found true happiness, a companion that will share all adventures with her.
This girl is actually a professional ukulele musician.
Simple and classy.
I like having a bit more excitement in group shots. We get there with some crafty directions.
Larger group shots still look phenomenal with proper positioning.
I am showing a lot of group shots to demonstrate that your wedding album can consist of anything your heart desires. If it's the two of you, so be it, if it's all the ones you love- no problems.
Through the grass shot. I haven't done selective focus shots like these in a while.
Takes a little trust to sit on the grass in your Sunday best. But hey, it's worth it in the end, for grass shots like this one I sit the bride on groom's lap.
How different is this shot from the previous one, but they are both done in same place. Notice how we use the dark forest area to create contrast and make the couple stand out.
We end the album on this beautiful note in the same place. No travels, no wedding reception photographs, no stress. This is your simple day.
