Columbus Wedding Photography // Jason + Lesley // Camp Mary Orton


These two amazing people put together a truly unique wedding on the grounds of Camp Mary Orton, and I am so glad I was asked to photograph it. Their personalities came through in every detail of the day. Let me run through a quick overview of events so you’ll see what I mean: an early morning zipline over the camp’s ravine, beautiful outdoor ceremony, tons of highly delicious middle eastern food, vintage dinner plates as wedding favors, live performance by The Casey Anthony Trio with DJ KGBeatz proving the dance music, a full court basketball game, Mikey’s Late Night Slice food truck, vegan cakes by Pattycake Bakery, and an insane Ace of Cups karaoke after party.

Thank you, Lesley and Jason, a thousand times over, for allowing me to be there to document all of this.
And another big thanks to the talented Mike Stempler for being an awesome 2nd shooter.

Oh, and if anyone has a bootleg recording of Jason’s rendition of ‘Refugee’, please send that to me immediately!

Jen and Nate // Highbanks Metro Parks // Columbus Wedding

ZK:  One of my favorite moments from this wedding was asking Jen and Nate to step into some tall grass so we could take some bridal shots in front of the amazing backdrop of the Highbanks Metro Parks. Jen moved so beautifully through this field that I didn’t have to say a word, it was just CLICK CLICK CLICK with my camera. Then when Nate joined her it was the same thing. They seemed so at ease and comfortable, both in front of the camera and with each other.

CH: Natural!    Models that IS! Light that IS! Setting that IS! (snaps suspenders, winks, and softshoes off stage)

ZK: I love these sunset weddings. You can’t ask for better light.  Mmmm…warm, golden, light.
