Perhaps one of the most exciting yet challenging parts of planning your Ohio wedding? Choosing a photographer to capture the special moments of the big day!
Beyond selecting floral arrangements and a catering company—which are both important, but short-lived—having a collection of visual memories is arguably one of the most lasting elements from your nuptials…alongside your love!
So, you need to narrow down a wedding photographer—one that meets your expectations and understands your aesthetic vision. We’ve rounded up 13 of the top wedding photographers in the Ohio area with a variety of diverse styles and techniques.
Even better? Many of these talented individuals are also available for travel beyond the state!
One person (they know who they are), constantly inspires me to love myself. That person always has my back and encourages me to keep going and allows me to make sure everything for my clients is perfect.
