Alex + Oriana Married!


Oriana contacted me a few days before her Friday wedding and asked if I would be able to shoot her ceremony.  Looking back, I'm so glad that this rare Friday I did not have a shoot or consult or anything except my 3 year old's birthday later that night.  I met Oriana and Alex and the Cuyahoga County Courthouse where they were married in the presence of each other, the judge and myself.  They are both from Venezuela and are planning a religious ceremony next year.  This was civil ceremony was very important to them and they wanted the memories captured.  As a photographer, I've never been the only guest at a wedding before, but I must say that it was one of the most special events I've been a part of. 

The ceremony was very short, which was fine with me because it left of us with plenty of time to explore the courthouse.  It was fun.

and romantic...

For a while, I've encouraged to brides and grooms I've had the pleasure to work with to make sure to take time during their busy wedding day for each other - to take in the moment and cherish the meaning of it.  Alex and Oriana had this moment all to themselves.  They cried, they smiled, they laughed, they remembered and they danced...

We then decided to step outside into the wind and rain.  Once again the weather seemed to give us just the opening we needed.

I hope these images show you the love between Oriana and Alex and I hope in some small way it inspires you as it did for me.  It will always be a pleasant memory for me.  They are a special couple with a shining presence.  I could have never asked for a better experience as a photographer.  I normally would not post a picture of me, but hey...I was the only guest:)
