Lillianna’s 3 Month North Canton / Mount Vernon Baby Session – North Canton OH Photographers

Even though Behr Photography, LLC is primarily a wedding photographer, who also specializes in couples & senior portraits, we do occasionally from time to time hold a baby session.  This particular session was special being that this was for my 3 month old niece, Lillianna.   With the lack of nap time, we decided to spread this session over two days.   The first session took place in North Canton, OH and the second session was held in Mount Vernon, OH. We managed to get a few images without any tears, but even the ones with tears are sweet.  Have a look at this cutie-pie!

Ashley & John’s North Canton Wedding – North Canton, OH Photographers

Today we got to be a part of Ashley & John’s wedding day and it was a cold one!  We started off at the Hilton Garden Inn near Akron-Canton Airport where Ashley and her bridesmaids prepped for the day.  After several detail shots and the most adorable flowergirl, Eva, had her grand debut, we headed to The Hair Shoppe and Spa to finalize hair and makeup.  At Gervasi Vineyard Ashley and her bridesmaids did final prep for the ceremony and reception.  The Bridal room was quite cozy and we were tight on time, but we were able to capture several images of the absolutely stunning bride-to-be before the fellas arrived.

The wedding and reception both took place in the pavilion.  It was such a special ceremony as Ashley walked down the aisle with her mother, smiling the entire way.   Ashley requested an image in front of the door of the Gervasi Vineyard Italian Bistro (which has since become one of my favorite images!) We decided that this would be best at night, so we broke away from the reception and grabbed a few images before the closing of the night.  It turned out perfectly as twinkle lights lit the paths and the trees.  This is one of the many benefits of having unlimited time allotted for photography the day of the wedding (which is included for all my bridal clients)!  The best images are almost always at the end of the night as everything starts to wind down.

Special thanks to Daniel Pohly for his help assisting with the day,

Cleveland Ohio Photography Workshop – Northeast Ohio Photographers

Last Sunday I had the privilege of attending a photography workshop lead by Larry Spencer of Spencer Photography, and sponsored by NEO Pro Imaging Inc. in the great city of Cleveland, Ohio.

What a long, but wonderful day!  We started our 13-hour adventure at 9am in Up Three Studios in Tremont, Ohio.  This was a warehouse-studio with several levels and had a rustic, broken-down look to it . . . which is my favorite!  We took some images of the bride and groom (which were really soon-to-be newly weds!) as if they were getting ready for the day and set up a scene similar to that of a reception hall.  Larry Spencer is a master of light and finding just the right spots for creating the perfect light.

This image below was located in a small room with a hole in the wall.  The hole was the only light used for lighting the subject, which produced excellent direction of light and a subdued effect.

Below the subject was lit by natural light falling in from a window.

Our next stop was Emanuel Lutheran Church, to work with the typical situations one faces in low-lit churches.  We worked with flash, and making sure to look at all angles of a subject to see if there is a more interesting view.

NEO Pro Imaging Inc. was our next stop.  Dave from NEO was kind enough to grab us some lunch as it was already 2:30PM by this time!  The day certainly goes fast when you’re lovin’ what you’re learnin’!

After some bonding time over our Winking Lizard meals, we hit the streets to chase the light!  Now, I can’t tell you how odd it was to see a group of 12 photographers with, at this point, two sets of brides & grooms.  There was honking and waving and cell-phone-picture galloring.  Of course, it also was Cinco de Mayo, so it was a party everywhere! Here’s a few images from downtown Cleveland, all of these with natural light:

We even had a senior from our group do some modeling for us:

We then spent some time, on our own, posing the models:

I was able to convince one of our own photographers to step in front of the camera for a shot:

As we headed back to NEO Pro Imaging, Inc., we were met by Brandi Hamerstone of All Events PlannedBrandi shared with us some great pointers on how to better work with other vendors, especially wedding planners, to make the wedding day run as smoothly as possible.  After all, it should be the goal of each of the vendors to make the day the best day possible for the Bride and Groom!

Finally, we finished out the day with a few night shots.  These images were lit by two video lights:

What a great day of learning and networking with fellow photographers.  I’m always encouraged after workshops such as these.  Now it’s time to put all this knowledge to use!
