Fun Unique Wedding Photography Poses In Southwest Ohio

During a recent wedding at Dayton Art Institute, I shot these four images.  I have never done these images before and I really enjoy the way they turned out.  The ice sculpture image was the idea of the maid of honor.  The next two images were my idea and turned out great.  The fourth image, the black and white, was taken just a few minutes before the ceremony.  Thanks everyone for the funny looks!

Ice sculpture photography can be tricky. There are may edges that can throw shadows and reflections of flash.  We waited until the end of the night to shoot this art museum photograph.  It allowed the ice to have less of a shine to it.  One thing I love about this image is that the ice sculpture shaped like a heart has the bride and grooms initials embedded within.  What a great touch!

There are many great wedding venues in Dayton Ohio and surrounding areas.  The key to choosing a great reception location is to find one that has good reviews and that has employees who fit your style.  If you are a laid back person, you may not want to choose a venue with restrictive policies.  If you like things to be well laid out and scheduled, you may wish to go with a dedicated wedding reception location.
