Toledo Wedding Photographer | Kelly and Craig | Summer Wedding

I’ve recently been asked by a wedding planner, whom I have never worked with before, how I can get all of the details of the wedding and be able to capture all of the candid moments without a second shooter.  I thought i would use this blog post to show that with all of my years of experience as a wedding photographer, it can be done!

I have been photographing weddings for over 25 years and have always worked alone.  The popularity of having a second shooter is a recent trend within the last 5 years or so that was started by newer photographers coming into the wedding photography business.  My years of experience, work ethic, attention to detail and ability to anticipate moments of the day and comradery with other wedding vendors that the brides and grooms have hired is the reason I have not needed a second shooter thus far.  It is also the reason I am able to capture the images many of today’s trendy photographers need two people to get the job done.

For this wedding, my day started at 12:30pm at the church (the couple’s chosen time and place to begin) and ended after the reception was over at 10pm.  I took over 1300 photographs and I am showcasing more of the candid moments of their day in this blog post.  This is by no means all of the intimate moments of the day that I captured for them, but merely a sampling to show you what I do and how hard that I do work.  Of course, every wedding is different and how I photograph it depends on the wedding timeline and how the bride and groom have things scheduled, and what they want from me.  Many of the candid moments depend on the actions of the bridal party and wedding guests.
Toledo Wedding Photographer

Kelly and Craig were married on Saturday, July 14, 2012 at St. John Lutheran Church in Williston, OH surrounded by their family and friends.  Their reception was held at St. Michael Centre in Oregon, OH.  On their wedding day, I started with the groom and the guys in the wedding party and the groom’s family while the bride and her maids were getting ready.

Toledo Wedding Photographer | Janelle and Alex | Sylvania Country Club

Wedding Photographer Toledo Ohio
Janelle and Alex were married on what was probably the hottest day of the year!  It was over 100 degrees by the time their late afternoon outdoor wedding ceremony took place at Sylvania Country Club on July 7, 2012.  This was also the first weekend after a massive storm went through the area and took down trees and knocked out power all over Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan.  Luckily, Sylvania Country Club did not lose power and everything was on for Janelle and Alex’s special day.  Here is their wedding story.
Candid Wedding Photographs
I arrived at La Luna Salon and Spa in Sylvania at 11am for the pre-wedding photos of the bride and her ladies getting the finishing touches on their hair and make-up.

From there it was on to Cleland’s Outdoor World for some fun shots of the groom and his gang relaxing before the wedding.  We were a little bummed when we found out I couldn’t take photos into the range for some real action shots.

Lori and Dan were married on June 23, 2012 in a small ceremony surrounded by their family and friends at Glass City Boardwalk in Moline, OH.  The reception was held immediately following their ceremony at the hall.  This is the story of their wedding day.

I got to the hall before anyone else had arrived so I began by taking some of the detail shots.  When the bride arrived, I took photos of her dress and accessories.

Toledo Wedding Photographer | Christine and Jon | Downtown Toledo

Toledo Wedding Photographer
Welcome to Jon and Christine’s Wedding Blog.  This is the story of their wedding day on June 16, 2012 told their way.  Most of the images in this blog post were either requested by the bride and groom before the wedding or purchased by them and their families after the wedding.  Many of these images were included in their wedding album, and with over 1200 photos to choose from, these are their picks.

Their day began at the Grand Plaza Hotel (formerly Crown Plaza) where everyone was getting ready, including the event staff, florist, and cake decorator.
