Christine and Daniel approached us this past winter to shoot their wedding in June. I must say, this was one of those couples that just followed the classic love story. Christine and Daniel met online, and after getting to know each other, they wound up canceling their online accounts and decided to get engaged. From the moment we sat down to speak with them about their wedding, it just seemed like this couple would be different. Christine had lots of great ideas of what she wanted her special day to be, the dress, the look, everything. It was a lot of fun to discuss ideas back and forth with these two because I think they had an idea of what they wanted, but they weren't sure of what their photographer could bring to the table. After all, when you hire a photographer, all you're really doing is hiring them based on the promise that they'll take good pictures on your special day. The great thing about our relationship with our clients, and especially with Christine and Daniel, is that we always strive to push ourselves outside of our comfort zone and to explore new styles and techniques. Christine and Daniel made it so easy for us to produce great photography because they were up for anything. We got a chance to shoot at some of my favorite locations around Columbus, as well as mix it up downtown in the arena district.
One thing that really stood out to me was how wonderful both families were. Daniel in particular, was in short, courageous. Daniel lost his mother a few months ago, and to capture the emotions that he, and is family were experiencing was so powerful and overwhelming. It really resonated with me. Christine placed a single red rose in her white bouquet to represent his mother and I found that the little touches here and there really helped the families celebrate her life and to make her apart of their memories that day. It's times like that where a photographer has to pay particular attention to the details. Every little thing that Christine and Daniel spent time picking out, arranging, etc... was extremely significant to their day, and not capturing those details would have been unacceptable. James McBride, a famous author was quoted as saying, "As a journalist, the details always tell the story." How true... especially in this case.
The photos turned out amazing and I am so excited to share some of them with all of you. Christine and Daniel did a great job of allowing us the time to get creative with their images and I am thankful that we had the honor of shooting their wedding. Congratulations you two!
I have their engagement session as well as their wedding videos here, so feel free to check them both out!
