Nathaniel and Valerie’s wedding on Saturday in Cleveland was the perfect way to finish off the 2009 wedding shooting season. Great people, fantastic locations, top notch event design, and a rockin’ dance party came together to make for a very memorable wedding. I started off at Nathaniel and Valerie’s apartment where the guys where getting ready in between Rockband bouts while Genevieve met up with Valerie and the girls at the nearby Embassy Suites. While at the apartment, I picked up on the fact that Nathaniel and I are very much in the same wavelength in terms of music. He even turned me on to a very cool album by The Dead Weather which is downloading into my iTunes playlist as I type.
The ceremony took place at the very historic Old Stone Church on Public Square with the reception at the beautifully unique Josaphat Arts Hall. Scott Jones from Jerry Bruno Productions did an amazing job keeping the dance floor jumping all night and he even busted out something I hadn’t seen at a wedding in a long time: a fog machine!
James’ favorite photos:
Wow. You certainly do have “the touch”. These are incredible.
The pics look fantastic as always! Great working with you again! Congrats to Nathaniel and Valarie. What a great event, the pictures tell a great story! The fog machine was fun. I wish more brides and grooms would request it!
I never even knew this reception location existed, how awesome! The stationary, the shoes… everything is fabulous. Lovely photos as always.
gorgeous photo’s props to the photographers
a great time was had by all
These pictures are amazing! Can’t wait to see more!
WOW! These are so creative and beautiful!
My favorite is the one in the square with the lights just V and N with dress blowing off to the left. My second is the picture with the rings. All are lovely!
Wonderful display of fun! It was a great time. Incredible photography!
Very elegant, chic, and unique. Love all:)
Beautiful. V & N, thank you for sharing your day with us.
Excellent pictures! It was a fantastic night. Congratulations again Val and Nathaniel.
These are not your everyday wedding pictures. These are fabulous.
Congrats Val and Nathaniel! What a beautiful wedding! Love the red shoes.
The photographers were obviously more than a little touched as many of these show the gift of that touch. Whether it be the use or absence of color or the eye-catching framing and vistas, these memories will be re-lived by all who view them. I REALLY liked the shot of the little maids (although missing one).
Outstanding! The photography is wonderful. Very beautiful!
These are amazing pictures. Congratulations to Nathaniel and Val, what a beautiful wedding.
Awesome pictures! Great shoes!
Genevieve & James, we love you!! Expectations were high and you far exceeded them.
The photos are perfect and exactly how I want to remember the day! Thank you both so so much!!
Thanks so much Nathaniel and Valerie, we love you two! You certainly helped us raise the bar and are thrilled to hear you like the images as much if not more than we do 🙂
Beautiful pics. Love the rings!
I feel as though I just toured a classical art museum in Europe.The photos are timeless.
Love the color and the style. Great job! 🙂
Wonderful pictures…I really admire your style. I love the picture of the wedding couple being framed by the staircase.
fantastic shot once again. i love the mood, the colour…really fantastic and inspiring!
These pictures don’t look like “normal” wedding pictures. They look like material for a coffee table book or a photo essay in a magazine. Is the photographer a genius or do Val and Nathaniel just look marvelous?
WOW! Those are incredible — each more beautiful than the last! You must be sooo pleased with your photographer. The clarity too! Wow! The church is amazing! Breathtaking! Congrats again! Luv, Kristen
The photographers ARE genius!

! now this is how you do it. These are really spectacular.
