Ah, Ohio. Sometimes, the weather just doesn't cooperate. A few weekends ago, we shot the wedding of Breanne and Tyler... and did it rain! We had plans to shoot a good portion our photography outside with them immediately following the ceremony, so when the downpour started, we were thinking... this will not be good.
Amazingly enough, as soon as we stepped out of the car, the rain stopped, and the sun came out. Who knew? The result was a beautiful scene at the Harding Memorial in Marion, Ohio. The wet ground really made the photos pop with reflections and actually helped create even more unique images.
The wedding reception was next door to the Palace Theater in Marion and I was very anxious for the opportunity to shoot in the beautifully ornate space. Towards the end of the night, we got our chance to shoot and the photos turned out AMAZING.
I think we were able to produce some phenomenal images and I can't wait for Breanne and Tyler to see their album!
All in all, a great weekend that started out rainy, but ended up with the sun in sky and great images in the camera. Enjoy!
Marion has been such a wonderful city for Kaufman Kramer. Our second wedding ever took place in Marion and it’s always nice to come back to a city we’ve grown to love. In such a small town, everyone seems to know everyone, and that by far has been the best publicity for us. I think the thing I enjoy the most is the challenge to create something new for each client in the same town. Nicole and Brian heard about us through the Marion grapevine and they already had a great idea of the kind of photography we produce.
Wedding day was actually the third shoot they’ve had with us, and there are even plans to do one more session soon! (pics to follow of course…)
I think that as a creative professional, we seek out clients that understand what photography means to us. It’s so much more than just… sign here, we’ll show up then. It’s about getting to know people, building rapport, and just having fun doing what you love to do.
We really had a great time shooting with Nicole and Brian, and judging from the already numerous Facebook comments, I’m confident that their photos will be treasured for many years to come. Congratulations you two!!!
As I was perusing the internet the other day I found this really awesome video by a VFX artist named Sam O'Hare. The video that he produced was simply amazing. It's a time-lapse video using a Nikon D3 with a tilt-shift lens. The effect that he achieved makes the video look like a city of "miniatures". It's not quite the same as shooting straight video with the D3, but the time-lapse turned out great and achieved a unique look.
The article of how he did it is here.
Check out his awesome work. Very cool.
