On Friday, I met Vytas and Berta in the Cleveland Metroparks for their engagement session. They will be having their wedding and reception at The Club at Hillbrook. Since their last session was in downtown Cleveland and more urban, they decided that this session would be as rural as possible…all trees and leaves. Just like last time, Vytas and Berta are great in front of the camera and their wedding at The Club at Hillbrook should be fantastic. Here are a few images from the session.

Yesterday was Nick and Laura’s wedding day. The day started at Scott Talbot Salon in Canton, Ohio where Laura and her bridesmaids had their hair and make-up done. It was then onto the wedding and reception at Gervasi Vineyard in Canton, Ohio. The weather was beautiful and, since Nick and Laura scheduled all of their pictures prior to the wedding ceremony, we were able to get a ton accomplished so that they could enjoy their guests and cocktail hour immediately after their wedding ceremony. Laura, the coordinator at Gervasi, did a fantastic job of making sure that the wedding ceremony went without a hitch and getting the reception started on time. Jason, of Cipriano Productions kept the party hopping all night. I want to thank Nick, Laura, their bridal party and families for giving us all of the time that we needed to do what we do.

Matt and Sarah first met at the Kent State University main campus, so it was a logical location for them to have their engagement session there. They will be having their wedding in October (four months…FOUR MONTHS!) in Wellington, Ohio, which, for me, as their wedding photographer, is exciting in that I will be in rural Ohio for an autumn wedding. I know it will be beautiful. Matt and Sarah were naturals in front of the camera (they are just that good!) and they made it very easy to photograph them. We walked around the campus to spots that were meaningful to them and, of course, chasing the light the whole time. Here are a few images from their session. I am looking forward to working with them on their wedding day. Be sure to leave them a comment, below, and remember to “Like” Spencer Photography Inc. on Facebook.
Yesterday, Kyle and Hannah got married. The day started with Hannah getting her hair and make-up done at the Aveda Salon, Headquarters, in Crocker Park. Then it was on to the historic Olmsted Falls Community Church we she finished getting ready and for the wedding ceremony. The day turned out perfectly. The weather was beautiful; the wedding party was awesome; Hannah, with the help of Natalie of Table Eight Event Design, made sure that everything was on time and went flawlessly. After a jaunt around Olmsted Falls it was off to the wedding reception at Avon Oaks Country Club. Rich, of Selective Sound Entertainment kept the night flowing and the dance floor filled (complete pro’s, as usual). I want to thank Kyle and Hannah for being so great, as well as their wedding party, families and Natalie of Table Eight Event Design for making their day perfect. Here are some images from the day.

Yesterday was Craig and Christina’s Cleveland wedding. The day started at Ladies and Gentleman Spa in Legacy Village where Christina and her bridesmaids had their hair and make-up done. Then it was on to Christina’s parents house to finish getting ready. I met Craig at St Pascal Baylon Church where the wedding ceremony was to take place and did some family photos with him. After the ceremony, we all went to The Flats in Cleveland for photos. The rain held off until we arrived at their wedding reception at Landerhaven. J.R. of Selective Sound Entertainment keep the dance floor packed. The storms raged outside while the party raged inside. Thank you to Craig, Christina, their families and wedding party for being so easy to work with. Here are a few images from the day.

I guess I should thank Jake too, but for what I’m not sure.
On a beautiful labor day Sunday, Vince and Lisa got married. The day started with Lisa getting ready at her house and Vince prepping for the wedding at the Holiday Inn. The wedding and reception took place at Todaro’s Party Center in Akron’s Merriman Valley. The weather was just perfect. Lisa loves the outdoors so it was our goal on her wedding day to capture her wedding day images in a way that reflected her love of nature. Dwayne of Audio Extremes Entertainment took care of keeping the dance floor full (which he did handily) and the rest of the day at Todaro’s went swimmingly. Thank you to Vince, Lisa, their wedding party and families for allowing us the honor of documenting their day.

Saturday was Derek and Michelle’s wedding. The day started at the downtown Cleveland Radisson right across from Quicken Loans Arena where Derek and Michelle both got ready. We did some photos there then it was on to Windows on the River for their wedding and reception. They decided to see each other before their wedding ceremony so they did that right at Windows on the River. After the wedding ceremony we took a short jaunt down to Cleveland’s East Fourth Street for some photos then it was back to Windows for the reception. Derek, Michelle, their wedding party and families were just great and we would like to thank them all for being so wonderful. Here are a few images from the day.

Today I want to share some of the wedding photography of my assistant, Renee, from our recent wedding in Cleveland of Dave and Ashlee. I know that I don’t say it enough, but I am proud of the progress that Renee has made over the last three plus years she has been with me. When Renee first started assisting me, I had to teach her everything (which is my preference) from how to set the camera to where to place the lenses in my bag. I tell everyone that she was my little ball of clay to be molded (bwahahahaha!) Her progress is evident in her work; in the fact that I can trust her to do any job that I ask of her and that she can (mostly) accept my constructive criticism (which is saying a lot). Again, I am very proud of her, I appreciate her more than I can say and love her as a friend. Here are a few images from Dave and Ashlee’s wedding in Cleveland, captured by Renee. Every image that you see (except for Ashlee getting dressed) was set up by Renee and, other than some basic color and exposure correction, there has been ZERO post production work on these images. If you are a professional photographer THAT is a HUGE deal. Be sure to “Like” Spencer Photography Inc. on Facebook.
On Saturday, I had the privilege of photographing Dave and Ashlee’s Cleveland wedding. The day started bright and early in Ashlee’s parent’s house in west Cleveland. The house was perfect for photos; great light; fantastic woodwork and antique furniture. I met Dave at Our Lady of Mount Carmel church where he finished up getting ready and we did some family photos. After the wedding ceremony, we meandered thru the west side of Cleveland to find unique locations for photos of Dave and Ashlee and their wedding party. That took us to some interesting locations and we ended up at the Cleveland Cultural Gardens. The night ended at Michaud’s in Strongsville where they had their wedding reception. Here are some images from the day. Be sure to leave Dave and Ashlee a comment, below, and remember to “Like” Spencer Photography Inc. on Facebook.
