Yesterday I was able to officially meet Eric and Carolyn for the first time during their engagement session. They will be getting married in August at the First Congregational Church of Tallmadge with their reception at Guy’s Party Center. They live in Florida and were in town for some wedding planning so we met up for their engagement session. We met in downtown Akron near the Akron Art Museum next to Musica at Urban Eats (yummy stuff there!) The day was beautiful and the weather was perfect. So, what do we do? We start our session indoors at Musica!! The light in there was beautiful and I just couldn’t resist. Like everyone that steps in front of the camera for the first time, they were a little apprehensive, but that quickly changed. Eric and Carolyn were fantastic and the camera just loves them. I am very excited to be taking part in their wedding day and very much looking forward to August. Be sure to leave them a comment, below, and remember to “Like” Spencer Photography Inc. on Facebook.
Yesterday the snow was coming down and winter was definitely in the 20 degree air. So much so, that it inspired me to get a bride in it. Many of my past clients volunteered (a fact that I will definitely be taking up in the near future) but my past bridal client, Jennifer was the one to do it. Jennifer had told me not long after her wedding this past year that she wanted to do a “trash the dress” session. I let her know that, if we were going to do it, the conditions had to be just right. Yesterday, they were just right. The session wasn’t so much as “trash the dress” as it was “dress MIGHT get trashed”. The cold was the biggest factor and Jennifer didn’t complain…not once (because, like all of my clients, she is bad a-s). For the images that I had in mind, I wanted a surreal quality to them. Falling snow was part of that vision, but part way thru the session it stopped snowing. I did overexpose the back lighting but, to me, this was to give Jennifer’s veil, and Jennifer herself, an angelic-like quality (Eee!! Did I just say that?!). It was good to push the limits of my equipment in the cold weather and it was invigorating just to be doing it. Thank you SO much to Jennifer for being more than perfect. Also, thank you to Matt Reisinger of R&S Productions for helping out and laying in the snow all evening. Her are just a couple of the images. Be sure to “Like” Spencer Photography Inc. on Facebook.
Saturday, it seemed like the weather decided to revisit winter, but like all of my clients, inclement weather conditions did not slow down Patrick and Laura or their photo session. We spent the whole session at Lakewood Park, in Lakewood, Ohio. I will be photographing their wedding day this June at Caro’s Party Center in Medina, Ohio. Patrick and Laura have some great ideas and I am looking forward to their wedding. Here are just a few images from the session in Lakewood.
