“I love being allowed into the private, behind-the-scenes moments of the couple preparing for the moment they say ‘I do’, recording the excitement of the guests as they see the couple for the first time, or capturing the elements that have been so important to bringing this moment together.”
How did Josiah start working at Buckeye Entertainment?
Josiah is a textbook case of being in the right place at the right time. Having just rented an apartment from the office next door, he heard we were looking to expand our photography arm so he stopped by one day. He fit right in with the guys and impressed the boss with his techy know-how and polished images. Josiah wanted to a place to showcase his talent and Buckeye Entertainment wanted a photographer: a whirlwind and a few weeks later, it was all official!
Who is this Josiah guy?
Growing up on the banks of the Mississippi river in Lomax, IL, he started shooting professionally in 2004. He liked the camera and the camera liked him so Josiah got himself a Bachelors in Photography and Graphic Design from Olivet Nazarene University in 2010 before going full time in 2013. He enjoys spending time with his lovely wife, especially if it involves travel, as well as all the perfect shots that travel presents for him.
Well that’s cool, how does he feel about weddings?
“I started doing wedding photography in college for friends that were getting married at the time. I have always enjoyed the excitement of the day and decided to use my talents as a photographer to capture those emotions on the big day. I enjoy being a part of one of the biggest moments in a couples life and being able to capture something that they will reflect on for years to come. My favorite part is the emotion and excitement of all involved and capturing those expressions.”
Favorite time to shoot?
“Golden hour, that time between evening and dusk. It gives beautiful shadows and a glowing light that interacts wonderfully with skin tones.”
Best part of working for Buckeye Entertainment?
“Having your photographer and DJ be part of the same team makes everything move so much smoother. Having shot weddings on my own and with Buckeye, it definitely helps streamline the whole process being a part of the group. Knowing that they genuinely love the work that they do and their most important goal is to help you to experience the day how you imagined it puts me at ease to do my best work.”
