Claire + Josh // Columbus Wedding



Claire and Josh were married in a small church in Lancaster Ohio, not far from Claire’s parent’s house, which was where they were having their reception. Ralph and Reda, Claire’s parents, bought the house in less than ideal shape, and with the help of their family over the next few decades, restored it to the extraordinary home I saw on the wedding day. It was designated the historic landmark Pugh-Kittle House in 1983 and made for a beautiful and significant setting for Claire and Josh’s laid back reception. I’d never, in person, seen a groom rock a powder blue tux until this wedding; unbelievable! Thanks so much to Josh and Claire, Ralph and Reda, and the Dixons, for making me feel like such a welcomed guest and asking me to document this beautiful wedding! I’m so thankful for clients like this.

Wedding Album Design // Columbus Wedding Photographer


Just after receiving my new studio sample wedding album in the mail, which I’m showing off here because I love it, I came across an article advocating that clients order printed wedding albums designed by their wedding photographer. She has some great points, especially about making sure your wedding photos don’t become obsolete!

“Do it for your grandchildren. Because when they root around in your attic in 2075, they will have no idea what do with a USB key anymore than they would with a laser disc player.” -Kathleen Trenske

I looked at a lot of album companies before deciding who would be assembling albums for my clients. Craftsmanship and print quality had to be outstanding, and I wanted to make sure the finished product would hold up over time.

These album pages are printed on archival matte museum paper and the inks used are lightfast for generations. I couldn’t be happier with the print quality. The images look beautiful on the matte paper and I know they’ll continue to look that way for decades. The album pages lay flat and have no gutter or break at the binding. The full wrap photo cover has a protective coating that adds durability and resists smudges and fingerprints.

Although I custom design every album, the pics and the video should give you a sense of my aesthetic and overall approach to wedding album design.
