Adam + Stephanie...Married!


Here I sit in my office blogging at 2:30 in the morning.  Yes, there have been some long nights at the office lately.  This has been our busiest year ever.  I'm probably going to have to cut down on the number of images I blog shortly, but for this wedding, there was just no way I was going to be able to do that.  When I left their wedding 10 days ago and walked out into thick Cleveland night air outside the Radisson in Eastlake, my only thought as I opened the door to my car was: "I love those guys."  Adam and Stephanie's wedding would have been a bright spot in anyone's day.  And if the experience solely consisted of photographing them and commemorating their love, it would have been a good day.  But not only did I get to witness the love of a wonderful couple and capture these moments, I also got to spend the day with this great group of people.  The bridal party was awesome and the families.  There were a few pro photographers in the party and a guy who had good ideas, so it gave a real challenge to perform and use my creativity.  Note of honesty: Sometimes the bridal party ideas shots are something I wade through, but this guy really had some sweet creative thoughts.  I love it when people do that.  There is an artist in all of us.  So here is how it started.

This ceremony had such a good vibe to it.  You could just sense the connection between Adam and Stephanie and the support from the families.  They left joyful, but my favorite shots were right when they got through the doors.  A couple real moments to cherish.

After the entry we did some usual family, formal shots inside.  I don't think I've ever blogged formals because they don't show much creativity and are typical.  I do value them however.  I can see how a family picture is very important when you have several generations involved.  This group was so fun that I couldn't help catching a few more candid ones in between the niceties.


Here's where I give credit to the second groomsman down.  Here recommended the stairs and I think it was a mighty fine idea.  At first I wanted to eliminate the cars, but when I saw a few frames I thought they added depth.

Notice: No bridesmaids were injured in the performance of this stunt.

Normally, I wouldn't make your scroll this much...but it might be worth it

Normally I don't blog speeches either, but I had to blog this next picture because I like the words of speech so much.  Stephanie and her Maid on Honor had made a pact with each other early in college to only consider a man who really loved Jesus.  They decided not to play the dating game, but rather to be patient for their soul mate.  I think this is such a good example to society.  Yes, to follow Jesus and his teachings and also to set your standards before you get involved.  Determining our values before we make big decisions!  This could help our generation dodge so many painful mistakes.  We were all pretty sure it was a good choice for Stephanie.  God gave her Adam.

The Dance floor was rocking all night with some sweet moves and epic dance-offs.  Congrats Stephanie and Adam.
