Kim Plus Jim say “I do” on {08/22/09}

Oh my!  You ever meet people and just hit it off SO well you know you will be friends for life?!  Well, that’s about how I feel with Jim and Kim {cute rhyming names, I know}!  They are so awesome…and SO in love.  There was not really any posing involved with this shoot.  I gave them a few ideas and THEY ran with it – they totally made out without me saying a word – they totally laughed without me jumping up and down behind the camera {I still jumped up and down but they were SO into each other they didn’t pay attention to my crazy hooooplas}….SO, I think I totally pulled off them posing in numbers that make their wedding date..without THEM even knowing!!   See…that’s what you get for being totally in LOVE and not paying any attention to your photographer…A VERY COOL surprise 😛






The {Wonderful} Woods

The Wood’s Wed in Heath, Ohio on a beautiful June day.  Their wedding was so unique with only 25 people surrounding the garden nuptials at the Davis Shai House.  It was very intimate and special as they read their own vows to each other.. even the ring vows were their own words.


Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Wood!   Enjoy your beautiful lives together!

Lisa - Crystal-The pictures are great! I especially like the groom & groomsmen in the arbor & the bride’s journey with her Father. Thanks, again. Lisa

The {Fabulous} Farleys

Lelia and Thomas became Mr. and Mrs. a couple weeks ago at the most beautiful church – Hoge Memorial – I just fell in love with the deep color and structure of the wood.  Lelia and I go WAY back – my father and her mother were together for ten years so we spent the majority of our teenage years together.  It was amazing seeing her marry the man of her dreams.  Their day couldn’t have been more beautiful! 



Congrats to the {FABULOUS} Farleys! I love you bunches!

Zander - Nicely done!

Happiness with the {Hagerdorns}

My cousin is married!  Aaron and Ashley Hagerdorn wed on June 13th at the Venice Club…it was beautiful.   I had the honor of standing next to her as she read her lovely vows to Aaron.  So many of these images were captured by my wonderful mother, Cyndi.




Christy Hilliard - Frystal you and Aunt Cyndi did an amazing job! Thank you so much for making Ash’s special day complete with all of your extra little touches.
Thank you so much
Love, Aunt Fris

Carol Estep - So sorry I was on vacation and had to miss your special day. Hope to see you at the reunion. Love, Aunt Carol

Justin {Plus} Raewin = Fun!

So..Monday I had the pleasure of joining the soon-to-be Walker’s at Gahanna Creekside to take their engagement fotos.  I work with Justin’s mother at Chase so I get daily updates on all the fun wedding plans…even some stuff the couple does not know about..{tee hee hee}.  Ma Waka and Ma Jody were fabulous assistants..they held my reflector and jumped around behind me to make Justin give some “real” smiles – let’s just say with these two behind me and my big camera it made for a hilarious shoot!  Can’t wait for more fun on the wedding day!!

Jump HIGH – look how perfect Justin’s jump is!  Hilarious!



GrayPhotography - Oooooh! LOVE the first shot!!! It’s my fav! – JG
