cathy and jimmy’s cincinnati wedding

Wedding Photography

Rehearsal Dinner: The Queen City Club, Cincinnati, OH
Wedding Ceremony: St. Ursula Academy, Cincinnati, OH
Reception: The Green Residence, Anderson Township, OH

The weekend before we upped sticks to move to North Carolina, I had the honour of documenting Cathy and Jimmy’s wedding for them. It was a long couple of days, but extremely fun and very rewarding indeed. Coverage started at the Queen City Club in downtown Cincinnati and continued the next morning as the girls got ready for the day ahead at Valenti salon. From there we headed back to the Green residence in Anderson Township, which was also the venue for the evening reception. Cathy’s mum, Susan, had done a great job getting the house ready with a gorgeous marquee in the garden and fairy lights decorating the bushes and swimming pool. It really was a great location to shoot in. The wedding ceremony too was in a beautiful venue, with the chapel at St. Ursula Academy providing the backdrop there.

The weather on the big day was amazing and the garden and views from the Green household were a riot of colour. If anything, the sunlight was the only challenge as it was very harsh indeed to work with, but we worked around it and the pictures turned out beautifully. You might be aware of the fact that I only use natural or available light for my photography, so I have to work with what I have in order to get the lighting looking its best. As always, no flash was used at all in any of these pictures as I prefer to work unobtrusively so as not to draw attention to the fact pictures are being taken and disrupt the flow of the day.

One thing you’ll notice from the photographs is how relaxed Cathy and Jimmy were on an occasion when many people tend to get very stressed indeed. They both were really laid back and had a great sense of humour. This combined with the fact that they are obviously besotted with each other made for some really lovely images. My thanks go out to them and their friends and family for allowing me to document their special day.

Now onto the pictures, here are just some of my favourites from the wedding day itself…

raleigh wedding portrait session – michelle & clay
A couple of weeks back, I headed down to Hope Mills, just outside Fayetteville, to spend a few hours around sunset in the company of Michelle and Clay. Rather than going with traditional wedding photography for their day, they wanted to just take some portraits ahead of time, which sounded like a fun idea to me. So with a couple of cameras, a fab location and a whole lot of juicy golden hour light, we sallied forth and went for a stroll with the sole purpose of having some fun and seeing what we came up with. Here are just a few of my fave frames from their sesh. Cheers, guys! ...

umstead wedding photographer – alex & marcus
There are a good number of reasons I love my job as a wedding photographer, and one of those is getting to spend quality time with people like Alexandra & Marcus, their friends and family, on one of the most important days of their lives. When I first met with them a year or so ago, I was immediately struck by their warmth, sense of humour, and how evidently in love they were. Those feelings were all reinforced when I shot Alex's bridal session last autumn and got to meet her mum and Matron of Honour, Lace, who were really great fun, and I was really looking forward to shooting their big day. And so it was that a couple of Saturdays ag ...
