an Epic Columbus Wedding

By August 2, 2011 August 21st, 2014 photos, Wedding

Luke and Jessica spent the day holding each other, surrounded by their closest friends and family, laughing, crying, and sharing their love for one another.  As a Columbus wedding photographer for Making the Moment Photography I am invited to be a part of a very special day, and life changing moment for each couple.Columbus Creative Wedding Photography It truly is humbling especially when it came to these two.  Luke is outgoing and fun, and becomes friends with all he meets.  Jessica has an amazing smile which shows how beautiful she is on both the inside and out. Columbus Creative Wedding Photography It is no wonder that these two fell head over heals for each other, and as Luke and Jessica will share with you, God does have a plan for our lives.Columbus Creative Wedding PhotographyThe wedding took place in both Columbus, Ohio, close by Westerville, Ohio. Since Luke and Jessica decided to see each other before the ceremony, this led to plenty of time for a creative wedding photography session.  Luke made sure of that, being that he is a new but talented photographer himself. It truly was a special day and their images are a small reflection of the love these two share for each other.Creative Columbus Wedding PhotographyBoth the girls and guys got ready at the Renaissance Hotel in Downtown Columbus.  The pool was located on the fourth floor and with the city rising all around us this was truly an epic location for a shot of the dress.Creative Columbus Wedding PhotographyI love mirrors, and reflections, but more than that I loved how this room had floor to ceiling windows which led to magical lighting for Jessica getting ready.Artistic Columbus Wedding PhotographyArtistic Columbus Wedding PhotographyI met the guys in the lobby and we had time for a few images before Jessica and Luke’s first look.  They had no problem hamming it up for the camera.Creative Columbus Wedding PhotographyCreative Columbus Wedding PhotographyA first look wedding photography session is a newer trend in wedding photography and I can see why it is becoming popular – at least the way Making the Moment Photography does them.  A special private moment between the couple, with no one looking on allows time where real emotion can be shared.Artistic Columbus Wedding PhotographyThe creative wedding photography session took us down into the brewing district of Columbus where old stairs, factories, and brick walls lead to some amazing images.Creative Columbus Wedding PhotographyCreative Columbus Wedding PhotographyFun Creative Columbus Wedding PhotographyFun Creative Columbus Wedding PhotographyFun Creative Columbus Wedding PhotographyCreative Columbus Wedding PhotographyFun Creative Columbus Wedding PhotographyKnowing that Luke and Jessica are so into photography I brought out some old cameras to add to the photo shoot.  These two had no problem snapping away at each other.Artistic Columbus Wedding PhotographyThis old door was AWESOME!!!
