Michelle and Matthew are seriously troopers! Saturday we all bundled up for their winter engagement session in Hoover Park. Michelle was originally hoping for flowers, but unfortunately Ohio’s unpredictable mother nature took a turn and offered us some snowy, 20 degree weather. As we are primarily wedding photographers, it is so important for us to be able to adapt and adjust quickly to whatever is thrown our way, as wedding days are always unpredictable in nature. Hoover Park has several different options for trees and shrubbery, so we intermixed some nature, aside from the snow, into their pictures. Plus, all of our wedding clients have included in their package up to 3 Engagement Sessions, which can work perfectly for pictures in different seasons!
Our next stop (when we needed a few minutes in the car to warm up our frozen toes!) was Bitzer Park in Downtown North Canton. Bitzer Park, although small, offers a mixture of brick & mortar, and “greenery.” We only took a few shots at Bitzer since the sun was setting, and the temperature was ever decreasing.
Michelle and Matthew will be holding their wedding at The Old Stone Chapel in Canton, and will have their Reception at The Onesto. Two very beautiful locations for pictures and a wedding! We are so looking forward to working more with this awesome couple come their wedding in May!
Here are a few of the pictures from their outdoor session. Leave them some love in the comments below to let them know you stopped by!

Little Dee is a sweet one-year old today, so we simply had to get some one year pictures taken to celebrate! We also had the pleasure of being this sweet little one’s parents wedding photographers back in 2013 at Gervasi Vineyard in Canton, OH (see their wedding day –here-). All of my bridal clients are so very special to me, so it is extremely special to have the opportunity to continue photographing their families as they grow. Dee is an absolute gem, take a look at this cutie-patootie.
This year Alex is a Senior at Lake High School and Hoover High School! He is a part of the soccer team at Lake and enjoys playing guitar, riding his skateboard, and wearing jackets :). Alex also really enjoys nature, so we started our senior session at Quail Hollow State Park in Hartville. The park was a buzz with other activities, including other senior pictures being taken, but Alex was confident that his images would be the best! 😀 We love that sort of confidence that our clients have in us! After grabbing a few pictures at the park, we headed to downtown Hartville to add a bit of variety to our backdrops. As a senior portrait photographer, I can honestly say that I love shooting on-location for this very reason. Having a session in a studio can oftentimes limit the creativity and variety of your images. We strive to make your images unique and fun, and having the great outdoors at our disposal is what helps us work our magic! The opportunities are endless. After snapping a few shots in downtown, and enjoying a bit of Alex’s mad guitar-skills, we popped over to Lake High School stadium to grab a soccer-related picture. Take a look at some of Alex’s Senior Year Pictures:

Kerri and Adam are planning to potentially take advantage of the three engagement sessions that we offer as a part of our wedding investment! Their second session took place in Downtown Akron starting at the Akron Art Museum. Kerri wanted a session that included the textures, colors, and lines that only a downtown session can offer. We decided to start a few hours before sunset and turn the session into and evening session to give them some variety in their images and a completely different feel. Take a look at some of the fun we had in Downtown Akron!
In May of 2015, Kerri & Adam will be getting married in Girard, OH at Pleasant Valley Evangelical Church, with their reception in Youngstown, OH to be held at Mr. Anthony’s Banquet Center! They chose to have their first engagement session at Firestone Golf Course in Akron OH as Golf is very important to Adam. This is the first of their 3 engagement sessions as we offer up to 3 engagement sessions with our wedding investment. They are so adorable together and it is evident that they are so in love with each other! We had a fun day filled with driving golf carts, laughing and capturing the moments. Take a sneak peak at how spectacular this couple is:
Jenna & Joe were married August 9th at Crossroads United Methodist Church (previously Canton Church of the Savior) in downtown Canton. They prepared for their day in their individual Parlor rooms at McKinley Grand Hotel in Canton, just a short 4-minute walk from the church! It was a beautiful day and we had plenty of time prior to the ceremony to capture some candids and detail shots. Jenna and Joe were both great to work with all day long, even under the stresses that can arise with any wedding day. We ended the evening back at the McKinley Grand for their reception (See in Blog Post – Part 2). The evening was filled with plenty of love, dancing and laughter! What a great couple; we wish them the best!

This is Part 2 of Jenna & Joe’s Wedding day preview. We took a few posed portraits after the ceremony in downtown Canton. We were limited in time since the party was starting in 20 minutes, but we managed to grab some shots of the couple spending those first few moments together as husband and wife. The reception was gorgeous at McKinley Grand Hotel; they always do a great job putting together events. Visit our blog post Part 1 of Jenna & Joe’s wedding day to see their prep in the Parlor rooms at McKinley Grand, and their ceremony at Crossroads United Methodist Church.

Jakki and Richard got married last Saturday! They had the perfect day for a wedding with plenty of sunshine, zero rain, and mid-70’s! We started our day off at the Comfort Inn Hotel in Akron, OH. There were a few hiccups with the salon, which pushed back some of our picture-time, but we pulled it off nicely! This is something we, as professional wedding photographers, have learned to work with over the years: the unexpected! Jakki makes a beautiful bride and was calm, cool and collected all day long. We were even able to grab a few bridal portraits, bridesmaid pictures and groomsmen pictures before the ceremony. Jakki and Richard were then married at Unity Chapel of Light in Tallmadge, OH. Shout out to Dan with LimoBusters (a Cleveland OH Limo company); he was spectacular! The bridal party really seemed to have a lot of fun traveling by limo between locations. He drove the bridal party to our post-ceremony photo locations in Mogadore, OH and to the reception held at St. Nicholas Banquet Center. Everything was a little tight on time, but we managed to grab some great shots and have a lot of fun. Check out some images from their beautiful wedding day:
As wedding photographers, we are constantly practicing on our off-time in preparation for our clients’ wedding days to make sure that come the big day, we are at our best! Today we received a new Macro lens and were excited to try it out! The Macro lens is perfect for ring and other detail shots taken throughout the wedding day. We wanted to take a moment and share our at-home photoshoot with some of our own rings. Looking forward to using this new lens at our next wedding!!

Fancy Dresses. Tea and cookies. Croquet and Cornhole. Photoshoot and 13 pretty ladies. This is what this past Saturday consisted of for me. And what fun it was! As a wedding photographer, during the weekends and off-season in which I am not photographing a wedding, I am constantly trying to hone in my craft and improve my skills so that I am at my best when a client’s wedding day arrives. I took the opportunity to help out by photographing this mini-event held in Powell, Ohio and Columbus, Ohio where I was also given the chance to practice as a photographer. These beautiful ladies had quite a fun day wearing their fancy dresses and participating in some activities that would not typically involve formal wear. Take a look at the fun day they had prancing around in wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses and other formal wear:
