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!

Kerri & Adam’s wedding in Youngstown OH was one year ago this past May! (see their wedding day pictures here: Part 1/Part 2)
Now they are headed off to new adventures in Columbus, GA. All bridal clients of Behr Photography, LLC, have one free portrait session per year, for life, so Adam & Kerri chose to take advantage of one of their sessions before heading out! As a wedding photographer, I love to have the opportunity to keep in touch with past clients and continue to be a part of their growing lives together.
Pictures at Lake 8 Movies in Barberton and Lake Anna Park were important to Kerri and Adam as these were special locations to their story together. We walked around looking for interesting light and textures, and overall enjoyed a beautiful day outside for a portrait session in Barberton OH. Take a look at a few images from their session:

Oftentimes a client’s wedding day reflects the couple, their personalities and what is important to them; Marsena & Matt’s wedding day was absolutely uniquely theirs. Held on October 31st, the wedding reception was halloween-themed with costumes, candy, and masks to share with their guests. Aside from the reception, they were married in traditional wedding dress and suit, but Marsena’s bouquet, the boutonnieres, and decorations were a reflection of what was to come . . . 1000 origami cranes! They were married at St. Charles Catholic Church in Bloomington, IN and their reception was held at The Hilton Garden Inn. A special shout out to Morgan with Ashley Weddings and Events, if you’re ever in need of a wedding planner in Indiana, she’s fabulous. Take a look at PART 1 of their Bloomington Indiana Wedding:
Take a peek into the fun we had at Marsena & Matt’s October 31st halloween wedding reception held at The Hilton Garden Inn in Bloomington, IN! The décor consisted of themes from Superhero Movies, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and much more that reflected the personalities of our bride and groom. Guests were dressed in costumes such as Where’s Waldo, Disney Characters, Captain America, and our very own Sonny & Cher (played by Marsena’s parents). Such a unique and fun day!
Today we had the privilege to attend a workshop held by Professional Photographers of Ohio. The workshop took place in downtown Akron at Quaker Square, which is quite a unique location and a lot of fun for a creative eye. As wedding photographers, we decided to attend a few of the wedding photography sessions to enhance our techniques. Larry Spencer of Spencer Photography was the speaker of our first session. He was excellent as always in directing our group in finding the perfect lighting in even difficult situations. Our models, Alyssa & Nate, were awesome, especially for just meeting one another today! Check out a few of our images from the day:
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:
