As a top rated team of wedding photographers in Columbus Ohio, we consider ourselves to be experts in our industry, but there are a few things that we leave to other pros who know better. Want recommendations? Send us an email and we'll get you our creative partners list. We can style the heck out of a photo OF your wedding party invitations, but don't ask for our design help. That's where Basic Invite comes in. Here's what we love about them:
The funny thing about being a wedding photographer in Ohio is that we plan outdoor engagement sessions year round and well the weather here doesn't always cooperate. When Brittany + Derek said they'd like to do their engagement photo shoot at Ohio State in January, we knew we could really be in for anything, cold and barren, ice storm, negative temps or 3 feet of snow. They we're up for the challenge though and of course we never stray away from an adventure!
We cannot thank our clients enough for the amazing year we've had. We are so fortunate to do something we love each and every weekend and we know that wouldn't be possible without these awesome couples. We're super excited to get to 2018, but we can't do that until we brag a little more, one last time, about how cute, funny, stylish and passionate our clients are.
Remember in the summer when we photographed Rosie + Terrial's German Village engagment session? No? Well lucky for you I have provided the link -> here so you can have a look back.
Anyhow, we were super excited they chose US to be their wedding photographers for their fall glam wedding!
We are so excited to be photographing Erin + Toni's spring wedding at Watersedge in 2018!! We got to spend a little time with them last week before we all went home for the holiday! We wen't to Antrim Park for some fall foliage, but most of the leaves had turned from colorful to drab. That was totally okay though because their love warmed up every photo we snapped!
One of the perks of being Columbus wedding photographers is getting to know some of the best vendors in the wedding industry here. Another perk is getting to work in really awesome venues. So anyway...we recently participated in a styled shoot at the Columbus Museum of Art with some of Columbus' top wedding vendors. It was a beautiful day and the details were absolutely stunning. We actually just found out that this collaboration will be featured on Borrowed and Blue as well as Glittery Bride and we are SO excited!!
When we met Solena and Aric at Stauff's in Grandview to discuss their Athletic Club of Columbus wedding and get to know them we were struck by how passionate these two were for each other. We talked for over an hour and kept telling little stories about each other and joking around. It was clear immediately how in love these two were and that their wedding was going to be a lot of fun!
A summer evening Engagement session in German Village? Yes please!
The sun was already high in the sky at 9am on the morning of Sean + Heidi's downtown Columbus engagement session. Luckily for all of us, the tall buildings provided shade, otherwise we would have been so sweaty!
We met Laura and Brian just about a month before their Columbus wedding. As we sat in a Panera and talked about their upcoming wedding, they showed us a video Brian had set up for when he chose to propose to Laura in front of all their family! It was so sweet. We could tell that the two of them were a match made in heaven. Lucky for us, we were a match for them too and they told us they wanted us to be a part of their wedding day on the spot!
In honor of our 9th anniversary, rather than go on and on about ourselves and how we've managed not to kill each other off in pursuit of a life insurance policy, we'd rather share some photos, I mean we are Columbus wedding photographers after all... and also share a little advice with you.
As Columbus wedding photographers, we're pretty embarrassed to admit this. This spring we had portraits taken of us for the first time in NINE YEARS. We honestly wouldn't admit that to you, but we had a really great reason for getting on the other side of the camera, so we wanted to share.
Our Columbus wedding photography clients often think their family portraits will be simple, quick and easy, but they're actually the most time consuming. This is because of a lack of preparedness beforehand. By doing a few easy things ahead of time, your family portraits will be the ones everyone wants to hang above the mantel in their home.
After photographing so many Columbus weddings and seeing so many awkward slices, we've put together a few thoughts to help you make this cake-cutting moment the fun memory you want it to be.
We care so much about not only capturing the amazing shots you want from your wedding day, but also that you enjoy your experience, that you have fun and don't feel stressed
We personally love Pinterest, we share recipes, memes, helpful blogs and of course we use it for our business too, to help brides + grooms like you! BUT... we want you to also have realistic expectations for your Columbus wedding photography. So here are a few tips.
Should you use a friend as your wedding photographer?
When we meet with a couple, we see it as a get-to-know-you meeting. We want to know you as much as you know us. Did you meet in Columbus, how long have you been engaged? What are you looking for in a Columbus Wedding Photographer?
Emily + Dylan's Heritage Trail engagement session in Hilliard was so adorable...and I didn't even plan it that way, in fact I pretty much had a very different vision than what we ended up with.
There is a big difference between an expense and an investment and I think that is the thing that distinguishes us from many other Columbus wedding photographers. To us, wedding photography is an investment in the way that you receive a valuable return for your money. We value photographs, and our clients do too.
