elcome to the journal for April O’Hare Photography! Here you’ll find all of my latest photographic outings with the couples, families, seniors and small businesses that I get to work with and make beautiful photographs for. You may also see a personal post here and there discussing my life or my travels with my teeny family of one husband and three cats! Sometimes I even write advice articles with tips to help make your photo experience better which you can check out under the “Educational” category.  

Take your time and look around! Type in the place where you’ll be getting married in the search box to see if I’ve photographed there before. At the bottom of the page I’ve highlighted some of my favorite sessions and weddings from the past. Grab a drink and have fun going down the photo rabbit hole!

It’s been a few years since I have had the chance to photograph a wedding at the rugged, wild, and summer camp-esque YMCA of the Rockies. So when Meridith phone me up to see if I could photograph her small wedding shindig there I jumped at the chance. She and her fiance, Ariel, were hosting […]

The wedding I’m sharing on the journal today is a wedding where I have a little bit of history with the bride’s family which is pretty cool. You see, way back in July of 2008 I was in my 2nd season of photographing weddings and I was so lucky to get to photograph the bride, […]
