One of the biggest honors a photographer can receive is having another photographer ask them to shoot their photographs. Joel just so happens to be a photographer himself, and we’ve worked together on numerous occasions. We’re part of the same FEO group, and we attend the same church here in Dayton. Out of all of our friends, Joel asked us to shoot his wedding, and of course we were happy to oblige!
He and Rachael were married up in Findlay, Ohio. It was a relatively cold, rainy day in April, but everyone was so excited and willing to do whatever we had in mind. It ended up being an awesome celebration
Rachel pulled one of the most hilarious pranks I’ve ever seen. Joel’s best man Jon blindfolded him, and after they made sure he couldn’t see, she traded places with her sister’s boyfriend who was wearing a wedding dress. I’m pretty sure everyone in the room was crying we were laughing so hard! That was before Joel lifted the dress and stuck his head under. Absolutely hysterical!
