Alpha Female Contest – Outdoor Portrait Sessions

We had the pleasure of entering Sony’s Alpha Female Contest.  Where we were not one of the top 5 chosen out of thousands of applicants, we were extremely proud of the accomplishments achieved in such a short period of time.  It was certainly not without the help of many others.  We wanted to share some more of the images taken during our sessions of our chosen Alpha Females. 🙂  They were spectacular to work with, and willing to hop-on-board last minute to create some fun, new images for submission to the contest.  Congratulations to the top winners, it was not an easy application and any applicant that took the time to enter would have been so deserving of consideration!  Click here to view our video submission to the contest.

Michelle and I met for a special morning session on a farm in Louisville, Ohio.  We mostly utilized the working-barn that was on-site, but traveled outdoors when the rain wasn’t an issue.  The barn was a particularly cool location for this session . . . with different levels, lots of hay, live animals and stalls, and so much more, we had a lot to work with.  This location seemed to excite Michelle is a horse-lover, and quite familiar with “barn-life.”  We actually met years ago at Skyview Ranch Camp where she was a wrangler.  Michelle is also a woman (an Alpha woman!) of many traits.  She also enjoys WEIGHT LIFTING, shooting guns, and reading.  Take a look at this awesomeness:

Megan and Suri met me for a sunset photo session in Downtown Hartville, OH.  It was a dual-session as we were crunched for time with the application deadline approaching in only 4 days.  We started at the Hartville Elevator (which is SUPER cool inside, but unfortunately they closed at noon . . . another time!) and then wandered around from there, utilizing the various Historic pieces of Hartville that we could. These two were absolutely fantastic, and a joy to work with!

Megan is a mother of three beautiful children (whom like ice cream from the Hartville Chocolate Factory, I learned!).  She has a gorgeous singing voice and is involved in various ways in her home church at Maranatha Bible Church.

 

Suri is momma of one and serves in the missions field with her husband here in Ohio.  She is originally from Bolivia, but came to the states a few years back!

Michelle & Matthew’s Winter Engagement Pictures in North Canton OH – Northeast Ohio Photographers

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!

Dee’s One Year Baby Pictures – Northeast Ohio Portrait Photographers

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.

Alex’s Senior Portraits in Hartville Ohio – Hartville Ohio Photographers

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 & Adam’s Downtown Akron OH Engagement Session – Northeast OH Wedding Photographers

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!

Jenna & Joe’s Canton OH Wedding – Northeast OH Wedding Photographers – PART 1

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!

The reception was gorgeous at McKinley Grand Hotel; they always do a great job putting together events.

Jakki & Richard’s Tallmadge OH Wedding – Uniontown Ohio Wedding Photographers

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:
