Georgio Sabino III had the honor to photograph at the White House the Ohio State Buckeyes Football team. The President and Coach Urban Meyer celebrated and honored the first-ever College National Playoff Champions.
REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT
HONORING THE 2014 COLLEGE FOOTBALL NATIONAL CHAMPION
OHIO STATE BUCKEYES
2:52 P.M. EDT
THE PRESIDENT: O-H!
THE PRESIDENT: O-H!
THE PRESIDENT: O-H!
AUDIENCE: I-O! (Laughter.)
THE PRESIDENT: That last one was a little weak there. Everybody, please have a seat. Welcome to the White House. And give it up for the 2014 college football National Champions, The Ohio State Buckeyes! (Applause.)
You may have noticed we have a lot of Buckeye fans here today, including some members of Congress. Representative Joyce Beatty was once a leader in the OSU community, and now she represents the OSU community here in Congress.
I want to thank The Ohio State University President, Michael Drake, who is here; Athletic Director, Gene Smith; and of course, Coach Urban Meyer. (Applause.) So this is Ohio State Football’s eighth National Championship. It’s Coach Meyer’s third time winning it all, with his second team, which is pretty impressive. I’ve only done it twice. (Laughter.) And for the same team both times. (Laughter.)
This was an historic year in college football. The country got to enjoy its first-ever College Football Playoffs. And I will say it — it was about time. I cannot claim full credit — (laughter) — I will point out that I pushed for a playoff system in 2008. (Laughter.) I’d say I threw my weight around. PolitiFact, which keeps track of whether politicians keep their promises — this is a promise kept by me. (Laughter.) So you’re welcome, America. It was a great playoffs. (Laughter.)
It was an exciting season from start to finish. And to say that Ohio State’s path to the title felt improbable at times would be an understatement.
At one point last year, the Buckeyes were ranked as low as 23rd in the nation. But they kept on battling back -– with the help of not one, not two, but three quarterbacks. First, they lost Braxton Miller, a Heisman contender, before the season even started. Then J.T. Barrett, the Big Ten Quarterback of the Year, steps in, has an extraordinary run, but then breaks his ankle against a certain team up north — I guess I’m not allowed to — (laughter and applause.) And then we learned that Cardale Jones is not your average third-string quarterback. (Laughter.) Anybody with a nickname like “Twelve-Gauge” has to be taken seriously. (Laughter.) I told him that I could throw a football 75 yards also, but he didn’t believe me. (Laughter.) So he clearly is a smart kid. (Laughter.)
But the Buckeyes hit their stride when it mattered most. They pitched a 59-0 shutout in the Big Ten Championship, earning their way into the final playoff spot. They beat top-ranked Alabama in the first round, then rolled up a decisive win against the Oregon Ducks for the National Championship.
At critical moments throughout the season, we learned about the character of this football team. And we met the characters who made up this football team along the way.
Like Joey Bosa — Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year. Joey — where’s Joey? (Applause.) A consensus All-American. He led the conference in sacks in 2014, including the one that ended the double-overtime game against Penn State. He followed each one up with his signature celebration -– a shrug. (Laughter and applause.) I use that move sometimes. (Laughter.) Now, Joey’s hair may be short now — and he looks good. I actually like it shorter.
- BOSA: That would be for you.
THE PRESIDENT: See, I appreciate that. (Laughter.) But he assures us that the shrug would be back next year. (Laughter.)
Wide receiver, Evan Spencer was named team MVP in 2014 for his selfless play, great blocking, and even a perfectly thrown touchdown pass to Michael Thomas in the Sugar Bowl. Evan, go ahead and wave. (Applause.) And in addition to rushing for over 1,800 yards behind an extraordinary offensive line — as good as we’ve seen in a very long time — and earning the championship game MVP, Ezekiel Elliott made the NCAA fashion police take a close look at their midriff policies. (Laughter.) Where’s Zeke? (Applause.) Thanks for tucking in your shirt today. We appreciate that. (Laughter.)
He said I needed to get the rule changed — did you see that? (Laughter.) Look, I already got the playoff, all right? (Laughter.) I’ve got other stuff to do now. (Laughter.)
But in all seriousness, this was a team of true character, of true resilience. As I said to them when I had a chance to shake the hands of all the players, everybody is going to go through ups and downs in life, and how folks handle it, how the quarterbacks on this team supported each other, that’s what every organization wants to see — is people stepping up for each other. And not only did they do it on the field; they made Ohio proud off the field. Each year, the Buckeyes pay forward their good fortune with more than 1,000 hours of community service and charitable efforts in Central Ohio. Visiting young patients in hospitals. Helping second graders improve their reading. Building playgrounds. Supporting the Special Olympics. Stocking shelves for the Mid-Ohio Foodbank.
So the love between this team and their community is mutual. I will say when you get 100,000 fans to show up to a practice — (laughter) — I think it’s fair to say that your fans are a little crazy. (Laughter.) But obviously it’s working for them and it’s working for this extraordinary team.
So, Coach Meyer, congratulations to you and The Ohio State University for your National Championship. Good luck this season coming up. (Applause.)
WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER SPEAK UP and Give You The Real Deal… Article by: Amanda Duffy Being a photographer can be one of the most rewarding jobs. It is the artisans in each of us to know when to feel… YES this is the moment!! And snap the shutter. However one man or woman with a camera can never be in 2 places at once. Photography is all about the moment, The details and the preservation of time. As we always prefer to photograph weddings with 2 “shooters. In our case, We do not charge for two professionals to be at your event. We honestly just always prefer to work this way at a wedding or large event. Sometimes brides want to save a little money or feel that it is too obtrusive for more than one photographer to be present on the wedding day.
But consider this: The second photographer offers another unique point of view throughout the entire day that you would not have had photographed if there would have only been one. When the magical wedding day comes. Our team will photograph the moments of preparation from hair, nails, rings, flowers, bow ties and cufflinks. We capture the beauty of your day as you say your sacred vows and exchange your rings to each other. It is always rewarding to hear a bride say… I look so beautiful in that photo. Because after all that is just what a bride is on her wedding day. We capture photos in formal settings between the ceremony and reception. We capture candids in a photojournalistic style through the duration of the day. Too many times, brides fall for something trendy in photography. It is critical that these images stand the test of time and are valued for each following generation to come. Trends are fun but rarely last! As it is very important not to “date” the images with styles or backgrounds. We are artist but wedding journalists. We are unique and we are here to preserve your moment. We photograph with a classic shooting style, and we do not manipulate and over edit photos in photoshop. However editing is important. It is simply not over done. You should expect to spend between $2,000 and $8,000 for any decent wedding photography. And superb wedding photography is just what we deliver. We offer engagement sessions. Often times it does not have to be accomplished at the very moment of your engagement. However it is nice to add a photo of the lovely couple to a wedding announcement / invitation. As you may even want Thank you cards after the wedding with your wedding portrait printed on the card. Engagement sessions increase the confidence and comfort level of the bride and groom in front of the camera and allow the bride and groom to practice having their photo taken in a fun, no-stakes atmosphere. We are fun! And we make sure we capture you in a classic way.
Ultimately, an engagement session will let the bride and groom see why the photographer might tell them to do something funny, such as “whisper in her ear and make her laugh” or kiss her on her cheek. ——?? Naturally this will lead to wedding day comfort and trust in the photographer. As we always wish to capture the real people on the other side of the camera lens. Traditional wedding photography has become something anyone can imagine in the mind at any time. Those photos usually illustrated a group of people standing up, close together. Wedding photography is not all about getting all the people who participated at the wedding in one photo. Wedding photography is about capturing emotions, feelings, and joyful moments in photos, but this can be done only if the photographer is a person who relates well with people and can capture their essence easily. For example capturing the emotions of a father who sees his daughter leaving home at another man’s arm is quite something to remember. Wedding photography should not use only colors; it should also be done in black and white. A black and white photo will stimulate the imagination of those who look at it; it will be like a remembering of old times when people has a more simple life and more time for dreaming. For obtaining a good black and white wedding photography the photographer has to possess certain skills with lighting and shadows in order to make the photo outstanding, just as color does. Colored wedding photography is needed too. This type of photo will illustrate later the beautiful array of style of the wedding party. It will bring sweet memories on how the wedding party felt. How to book your wedding: Book as far in advance as you can. Nothing is more frustrating than choosing a wedding photographer and then finding out that they booked out your date a week prior. This is especially important when there is travel required. We always require a small deposit to save the date. Let the photographer know before the wedding if there are certain photos you don’t like. It can be anything such as ‘I don’t like the photos you took of us not smiling’ or ‘I don’t like wide-angle close-ups; they make us look weird and fat.’ It totally throws off a photographer’s creative approach when a bride spills her feelings while we are in the zone. Communicating is a key element when we only have a short time to capture a fast moving event such as a wedding. It is always best for us to also understand family. Your family may have guests that do not wish to be photographed together and or divorced and so on. It is very important that we know this at the time of booking and planning so we can save hard feelings. The stress of finding all the prints, books and wall portraits does not need to be at the top of your list. As a couple finding the right photographer and getting the show on the road is honestly the first step. Until you see your images it is often difficult to decide what it is that you will want to order.
