Wedding at St. Hilary in Fairlawn, Ohio / Cleveland Wedding Photographers

JC and Abby prepared for their wedding at St. Hilary a their parents house. I love when clients do this, especially when it’s the house that they grew up in.

First, it’s convenient. They stay in a location that they are completely comfortable with. This eases some of the stress that is typical on a wedding day and allows me to get great candid photos.

Secondly, it adds an additional layer of intimacy to the wedding pictures. If I can get photos of the bride getting ready in a room where she ran around in as a child, this adds emotional depth to any pictures that are taken. I’m also able to do creative wedding pictures that are more meaningful.

St. Hilary is a nice little catholic church in Fairlawn, Ohio. I love the foyer at the entrance and always try to do creative wedding pictures there whenever possible. However, one of my favorite pictures from JC and Abby’s wedding is in a small, nondescript room to the side of the sanctuary where they waited after the ceremony. Some of the best locations are the simplest.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures of the first part of JC and Abby’s day and their wedding at St. Hilary.
