Kirtland Country Club Wedding Photography – Cameron & Wes

Two weeks prior, I sat in the club room with Cameron’s mother and an amazing team of wedding professionals. Over the course of two hours, we reviewed Cameron & Wes’ Kirtland Country Club wedding photography in detail. Every aspect of the day was discussed. Ceremony location, tent position, beer brand, and the steel drum player were covered in detail. I walked away from the meeting feeling buoyant. I could already tell their Bahamian-themed wedding would be truly special.

I stepped into the ladies parlor on the morning of the wedding. Cam was positioned in a pool of light by the window. A hair and make-up team was dutifully preparing Cam and a friend. The room was positively buzzing with friends and family. No one was rushing about. Instead, the energy was composed of anticipation. I was a bit early, so I decided to concentrate on some details. Before long, it was time kick things off. Cam took a moment to read a note from Wes before slipping into her lace sheath dress. Surrounded by friends, Cam and her mother made sure every detail was perfect.

But let’s rewind to the begin before we begin anew. Cam and Wes met while attending the Island School in the Bahamas. From there, the continued dating as their lives took them all over. Their Bahamian-themed wedding was simply a reflection of their life together. Kalik beer floated in steel boats at cocktail hour, while a steel drum player strummed in the background. The bridesmaids wore dresses reminiscent of tropical flowers. Tables we decorated in white and ocean blue.

It’s not an island wedding without a party, which continued long into the night under a full moon. Below are just a few highlights from Cam & Wes’ Kirtland Country Club wedding photography and fun moments from throughout the day.

The Club at Hillbrook Wedding Photos – Hannah & Ryan

I was never supposed to be here. For me to capture Hannah & Ryan’s Club at Hillbrook wedding photos, something had to go horribly wrong. The cause that brought about my presence nearly involved life and death. Hannah & Ryan originally hired another photographer for their wedding. The other photographer happened to be my friend. Then, inexplicably, my friend suffered an as-yet unexplained coronary meltdown.

For two hours, my friend was dead. Thankfully, she survived, but she would need months of rehabilitation. Aside from the unexplained coronary event and nearly miraculous survival, other magic was afoot. People from across the region band together to help our friend, which included helping to save her business and ensuring no couple went without a photographer. This is where we circle back to Hannah & Ryan.

I volunteered to cover Hannah & Ryan’s wedding. After chatting with them, they graciously accepted. I say graciously for a reason. Hannah & Ryan are gracious to the core. They immediately understood this bizarre situation and cared most for our injured friend. On their wedding day, Hannah & Ryan poured all of their energy into ensuring family and friends had the best day possible. For example, they took a special moment at the wedding reception to very publicly thank their parents.

While the wedding was supposed to center around Hannah & Ryan, I think it’s plain to see that they felt differently. For Hannah & Ryan, this day was all about being near cherished family and friends. I hope you enjoy the highlight from Hannah & Ryan’s Club at Hillbrook wedding photos below, mostly captured on film.

PS – My friend has made a full recovery that borders on a scientific miracle.

Cleveland Courthouse Wedding – Sami & John

There is a certain comfort you develop with clients. The comfort can come slowly, creeping in from the edges, or quickly like lightning. I developed a deep comfort with Sami & John. More so with them than with most clients. For me, that comfort clearly contributed to their Cleveland Courthouse wedding photography.

I first met Sami at her cousin’s wedding. Shortly after our first introduction, Sami & John were sitting in my office to discuss their upcoming Cleveland Courthouse wedding. In that moment, I immediately felt at home with with them. Strangely, I could almost see the future. I could see that we could create something amazing together.

At their engagement session, the comfort working together was immediately apparent. They opened their life together to me. Offered me trust in their relationship and allowed me to capture how they are together. We captured easy moments, but also honest ones. The results of the engagement session simply made me anticipate their wedding even more.

Sami & John’s wedding quickly became my most anticipated of the year. Finally, the day arrived and it was honestly perfect. The whole wedding day flowed effortlessly. It was filled with loving friends, affectionate family, and gorgeous weather. And the honesty remained. Sami, John and I moved through their wedding day with a certain ease that comes out in the photos below.

By the time we reached their Cleveland Courthouse wedding reception, we were all primed for a party. Toasts were given, with some tears, and the dances begun. Before long, it was time to wrap up one amazing day. To close, we snuck up to the second floor of the Cleveland Courthouse to capture emotional end-of-night photos.

We shared a hug and I wished them safe travels for their honeymoon. The story won’t end there, though. I know the comfort, trust and friendship will continue for a long time to come.
