Rachel & Bradon | Ohio Wedding Photographer

Ahhhh I've got a great one for you guys today!! 

Meet Rachel. She's from Alaska and she laughs in the face of our Ohio winters. 

She and her girls started getting ready kiiiiinda early for the 11:30 wedding. It was so awesome to work while the sun was rising, though! One of my favorite dress shots ever. 

Rachel I am DYING. You are so crazy gorgeous. 

Aaand here's Braden! I adore this photo right before the first look. His face plus the look on her face you can just make out.


This soft, morning light. The frost all over.  Wow. 


Actually, all their portraits are my favorite. I can't get enough of how they make each other laugh. 


Also dying over these dresses! I want one! 


Time to get married! This is Tammy's view of Rachel's mom just touching her on the shoulder as she walked by. I die. 


Time to start the party! 

You guys are the cutest!! 

I love these shots of the parent dances. 

Ending with more favorites! 

Rachel and Braden, you two are such a blast. I know you are going to have the best life together! 

Love, Abbey

From Rachel:

Describe your wedding in 5 words: Wonderful, special, fun, exciting, and just the beginning.

Funniest Wedding Memory: "Uptown Funk" played as we were being introduced at the reception and I'll never forget the image of my parents dancing into the room

Emotional Memory: Probably our first look. It was the "holy cow, this is really happening" moment, and we got to take it in together which was perfect. 

Advice for future Brides and Grooms: Everyone says this, but don't stress the details (and this is coming from a detail person. They really don't matter when it comes down to it. 

From Braden:

Describe your wedding in 5 words: Perfect day and stunning bride.

Funniest Memory: Rachel being so tired of her shoes and her feet hurting so bad that she just left them by the trash can as we did our grand exit.

Emotional Memory: Seeing Rachel come down the aisle and writing our own vows for one another

Advice for future Brides and Grooms: Don't be afraid to order heavy on the food because leftovers are awesome.
