Laura and Mike by Photosmith, Cincinnati Wedding Photographer

At 9:00 Brad and I woke up, had breakfast, watched the national weekend morning show and then headed out to start shooting the wedding of Laura and Mike. Laura and the bridesmaids got ready at the Burns home. It had air conditioning. I didn't want to leave. Ever. Or at least until September. We made a few getting ready shots and then, we did have to leave for St. Gabriel. Also air conditioned. The bridesmaids in their lovely lavender dresses and spunky silver shoes braved the heat to do a few pictures in front of the roses next to the church. The flower girls were adorable, the ring bearer a cutie. Laura and her family were so accommodating and kind. The groom arrived in a white limo, like the proverbial prince on his white steed. The groomsmen were fun. They wore formal tuxedos in the heat of the day. They did not complain. I liked them. Did I mention the church was air conditioned? It was. You could feel the cool air from the vestibule wash over you as you opened the heavy wooden doors. Laura and Mike smiled at each other as they sat listening to the service. They held hands. They gave each other sweet looks. We went to Glendale Gardens after the ceremony to take some pictures of the wedding party and the newly married couple. They laughed with their friends, they laughed with each other. When we arrived at the Savannah Center the wedding party was announced. They somersaulted in, they piggy backed in, they tango-ed in. They cheered for the bride and groom with enthusiasm. When Laura and Mike entered they went right into their first dance. The beautiful afternoon light illuminated the dance floor. Two toasts were given, a "day of" wedding video shown by Stevie Z. The cake was cut, the bouquet and garter tossed. The last thing I remember before we left was their guests dancing, having a good time, celebrating in honor of this really sweet couple. Here are a few pictures from that day.

Kristen and AJ

Kristen and AJ had a destination wedding in June on a gorgeous beach in Destin, Florida. Luckily, the beach hadn't been affected by the oil spill yet! On Friday, Kristen and AJ had a reception at the Syndicate in Newport, Kentucky to celebrate with the friends and family that were unable to come to the ceremony. Before the reception, we went to Eden Park and Riverside Drive in Covington for some pictures.

Kristina and Daniel

After a morning of hair and make-up at Hair Finale Salon, I met up with the bride and bridesmaids at Glenwood Gardens. They bridesmaids arrived in summer yellow dresses and Kristy had on fun yellow heels and a unique yellow diamond engagement ring. The ceremony was conducted at Northminster Presbyterian Church and the reception at Royal Oak Country Club. At the Country Club, the bridal party was able to go out to the golf course in a few golf carts. We made some fun pictures of the wedding party out here.

Meet Elvis, I mean Russ. He is a barber at Kings Court Barber and Shoe Shine Service across the street from my studio. I have been getting my hair cut there for some time now. Russ is a great guy and we had a really fun shoot!
