Red Brick Occasions - Downtown Columbus, OH - Nadia + Ben

Hello friends! I know its been a while since I've blogged, this summer was amazing BUSY, but not just busy... this summer was productive and inspiring! I had the opportunity to learn so much, to meet amazing people, to travel to the happiest place on earth, and spend time with family! But alas, I'm back so enough about me...

Last year, when I was asked to photograph an intimate wedding with a vintage feel, featuring sunday brunch... I was excited, to say the least. It was kind of like having all of my favorite things combined into one fun filled day - pancakes! wedding stuff! mimosas! vintage dresses! swoon. After their bookworm inspired session at the Columbus Metropolitan Library, I knew their wedding day would be the prefect combination of cool, calm, and eclectic.  And boy was it. 

Nadia and Ben had family and friends travel from all over the states, to celebrate their commitment to one another during their wedding here in Columbus at Red Brick Occasions. It was amazing seeing the warmth and love that Nadia and Ben received from those closest to them. Parents, grandparents, aunties, sisters, friends from grad school, god parents and the list goes on and on. The day started off surprisingly warm, I think the 85+ degree weather caught us all a little off guard after there'd been such wonderful fall like temperatures a few days before. They didn't let that dampen their day, as we headed for couples portraits and met with the family to grab a few formal portraits before the ceremony. This helped to shorten the time away from guests during what I'd like to refer to as the "pre-brunch mimosa break." The ceremony was lovely, featuring readings from two close friends. After the ceremony, we worked on portraits with Ben's family, they were a blast. Then, we snuck away for a few more images, I really appreciate Nadia and Ben's flexibility and trust in my abilities, they really let me take my time, find the light, and to get a little weird with my ideas while capturing their heirloom portraits. They understood, that these are the images, that they'll show their loved ones for years to come.
