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.

Being a Cleveland wedding photographer, it is nice to sometimes have the opportunity to participate in an out of town wedding. On Sunday, I had the opportunity to photograph Eli and Karlee’s wedding in Cincinnati. The wedding and reception took place at Karlee’s uncle’s farm. The rural setting was great. As I said, being a Cleveland wedding photographer, I am used to a more urban setting, so the wide open country space was a fantastic change of pace for me. The day was a bit chilly and windy, which posed a challenge, especially for the wedding party, but all went perfectly. Eli and Karlee were just perfect. Kind, accommodating and just a pleasure to work with. I want to thank them, their families and their wedding party for being so awesome. This is part one of a two part blog post. There are so many awesome images that I had to break them up into two separate blog posts!

As a Cleveland wedding photographer, one of the things that I like to do with my wedding clients is have a photography session with them before their wedding day (I usually insist on one). If my clients wish to have more than one engagement session I will do it and it is included in our wedding photography service. The better prepared they are for their wedding day, the better they will DO on their wedding day. This was Dave and Ashlee’s second session before their May wedding in Cleveland and reception at Michaud’s in Strongsville. I have to say, they are definitely ready for their wedding day. Here are a few images from the session. Be sure to leave them a comment, below, and remember to “Like” Spencer Photography Inc. on Facebook.
Yesterday I met Vince and Lisa in Akron’s Merriman Valley for their engagement session. They will be getting married this month with their wedding and reception at Todaro’s Party Center in the Valley. The day was absolutely gorgeous. Sunny and just the right temperature for an engagement session in Akron. We drove around just looking for the right light combined with the textures of nature. They both did fantastic and I am looking forward to their wedding and reception at Todaro’s. Here are a few images from the session.

Well we FINALLY were given the perfect weather conditions for Mark, Sandy and Cody’s Akron family portrait session. Mark and Sandy’s first engagement session was in the middle of winter when it was, literally, 19 degrees outside…and they MEANT for it to be in the cold!!! (see it -here- ). When we scheduled a photo session that would include Cody, it was cold and rainy -here- . We got what we could but decided that we needed to have a photo session when it was more comfortable. We met this time in downtown Akron and it was just beautiful outside. The sun was shining giving us ample opportunities for different lighting techniques. After this session, I have no doubt the Mark and Sandy and, especially Cody, are ready for their big day. They will be getting married in the Akron area with their wedding reception at Guy’s Party Center. Here are a few images from yesterday.

From time to time I will get fellow professional photographers requesting one on one training with them to help them improve particular areas of their own photography. As a Cleveland wedding photographer, it is great to do these training sessions so that I can share the knowledge that I have acquired as a professional wedding photographer and portrait photographer. It’s is especially exciting, because it forces me to push the boundaries of my own knowledge by making me communicate that knowledge so that another professional photographer can easily understand. On Sunday, I spent the day with Kristy Steeves of Kristy Steeves Photography. Kristy had two of her clients, Tyra and Morgan, to model for us and we spent the day focused on natural light, posing and exposure. Light and exposure are THE two most important ingredients for a successful portrait so I really wanted to get Kristy to concentrate on those two things in particular. Most of our approach was focused on senior portrait photography since Tyra and Morgan are seniors in high school. They were both fantastic and Kristy is as lucky to have them as clients as they are to have her as their senior portrait photographer. It was a pleasure to share what I know with Kristy and I hope that she got as much out of the day as I did. Here are a few images that I captured during the day.

On Sunday, I met Vytas and Berta on the west bank of the Flats in downtown Cleveland for their photo session. They will be having their wedding and reception at The Club at Hillbrook. Since their wedding site is more rural than urban, they decided that this session would be as urban as possible. Not many other areas in downtown Cleveland meet that criteria better than the west bank of the Flats. It was a blustery day, and our biggest challenge was handling the wind. We worked with it and accomplished our goal. Vytas and Berta are great in front of the camera and their wedding at The Club at Hillbrook should be fantastic.

Yesterday was Glenn and Elena’s wedding. The day started with…snow (Only in Ohio!). I met Elena at the Spa at Springfield for her hair and make up. It was then on to her parents house to finish getting ready; do some pictures; then her and Glenn would see each other for the first time, right there. The ceremony was at St. Adalbert in Berea, Ohio followed by the reception at the Cleveland Airport Marriott. Glenn and Elena decided to see each other before the ceremony in order to take full advantage of their cocktail hour and reception. All of the wedding pictures, for the most part, were finished before the wedding ceremony. One of the funniest moments happened at the reception. There was a little league baseball team staying at the hotel and while we approached the lobby for some final images we noticed that they were having a pizza party right in the lobby. So Glenn and Elena suggested that we do a picture with them. The result is below. Glenn and Elena will be leaving for their honeymoon early tomorrow morning, so I wanted to get some images from their wedding day on the blog for them to see before they leave. Here are a few of my favorites. I will post more in the coming days. Be sure to leave them a comment, below, and remember to “Like” Spencer Photography Inc. on Facebook.
