Columbus Zoo Heart of Africa Wedding: Chloe + Mason

Chloe + Mason’s Columbus Zoo wedding was full of sun, style, and giraffe photobombs! And also two wedding dresses!

It was a Saturday in mid-September, when we began our day at Nationwide Hotel. Each side got ready, each of them exchanged gifts, and then I staged their first look outside. Their wedding party joined and we headed to High Banks Metro Park for portraits! And then it was on to the zoo for their wedding festivities! We got some photos with the giraffes and then it was time for the ceremony!

After their ceremony, it was onto cocktail hour and animal encounters, where the couple got to meet each animal guest (a fox, bearcat, hawk and penguin) before they joined the wedding guests. And then it was time to feed the giraffes! We got so many great shots of this part!

Afterwards, Chloe changed into her second dress, and it was time to party! After dinner, toasts, sunset photos, formal dances and cake cutting, everyone danced the night away. We ended the day with some epic night shots! Congrats to Chloe and Mason!

I aim to capture moments and expressions that tell the story of a day, and are authentic to the people involved. If you can look at a collection of images I’ve taken of a total stranger and get a feeling for who they are and what they felt, then I’ve done my job!
