Dominique & Joseph || a New Castle - Youngstown Wedding

For brides and grooms who don't particularly enjoy being the center of attention, your wedding day is exciting but can make you a little anxious at the same time.


While we were photographing the "getting ready" moments before the ceremony, Dominique mentioned how she feels a little nervous being the center of attention. As her wedding photographer, this was great to know moving forward in the day because it helped dictate how I ran their portrait time.


When we took photos of just Dominique and Joe at The Lake Club in Youngstown, Ohio, thankfully there was space great for portraits and that happened to be a few hundred yards from where cocktail hour was taking place. This allowed just the essential team of photographers and videographers to coordinate beautiful portraits with the bride and groom without extra sets of eyes watching.


While we can't prevent all of your guests from focusing on how dang beautiful and dashing you look on your wedding day, there are certainly ways to help you feel more comfortable while we capture natural-looking, fun portraits of you and your new spouse.
