Justin & Katie’s Nighttime Willoughby Wedding

Justin and Katie’s wedding day was a true testament to the unpredictability of Ohio weather!  The fall day was sunny and warm in the mid 70’s even into the night!  Justin & Katie are one more installment of a great circle of family/friends (a good majority of them including Justin are firemen) who have all had us photograph their weddings.  All of them are on our favorite client list and had wonderful weddings – Justin and Katie were no exception.  These two take the award for being the most laid back Linczak couple ever, content in everything, letting people just do their job.  Their total trust in us from day one has made us feel completely relaxed and at ease with them.   They have a beautiful little one named Morgan who they were able to include in their ceremony.  She made quite a statement when brought to the front of the aisle, eliciting much laughter from the crowd!  This wedding proved to be more of a challenge than a typical wedding because the majority of photos were taken after sunset.  Managing a 22 person bridal party in downtown Willoughby is no easy task!  🙂  But everyone cooperated beautifully and we were able to capture some really amazing images!  We love shooting at night though it’s usually just with the married/engaged couple.  We look for interesting backgrounds with lights and colors to break up the darkness behind our subject.  Any downtown area is a great place for after dark shots because of the abundance of car headlights, stop lights and street signs.  Their wedding guests danced like crazy all night and provided us with lots of great moments well into the night.
