Entries in bride photography (5)



Hello Michaela! Michaela and Aaron were married in the beginning of June in 2016 at Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum! This was taken right outside.

I know I have only shown brides the past few days, but I keep coming across some great portraits that I need to share. I love this because it was taken by Alyssa, one of our assistants. She was working this wedding with Neal. She captured a great angle for this image. I love all of the vines and greenery on the building. Michaela looks amazing against the backdrop.

Such a stunning image of Michaela!

Welcome back Laura and Ian! Well just Laura!

I love this solo shot of Laura. She looks absolutely stunning! This was taken at Albright Knox Art Gallery! The funny thing about this image, was that it wasn't even planned or posed. I was originally working with Ian and the guys and I saw Laura strutting her stuff on a ledge of the gallery! I turned and started snapping away. Once I saw how pretty everything was looking, I had to take a time out from Ian. I then gave Laura a little direction and had her glance off into the distance.

This image was great because Laura was just having fun! As photographers, we always have to have eyes everywhere. I know it sounds creepy, but never lose site of the bride or groom. You never know what may happen. In this case, still having eyes on the Laura, created a beautiful image!

Look at this amazing image of Heather at Old Fort Niagara!

Heather and Clay were married in July at the Youngstown Yacht Club. They did their photos inside of Old Fort Niagara. Heather grew up close to the entrance of the Fort so it was personal that they went there for photos! Neal shot this wedding with another assistant, as I had my own wedding that day. I still took a quick look through Heather and Clay's images though.

And I am so happy I did! Heather looks stunning! I know she is walking/running away from the camera, but I still love it. It was super bright out as you can see. This is one of the tunnels in the Fort. Neal had her go toward the light. You would think she would have been super blown out because of her white dress. The material was so lightweight, that Heather could carry it no problem on her own. The way she held it helped to catch shadows and create detail in her dress and not wash her out. The tunnel sometimes acts as a wind tunnel so it creates beautiful movement in dresses and veils.

Simply beautiful! 

A lot more to come from Heather and Clay's wedding!

Gorgeous Jill!

Jill and Matthew got married a few weeks ago at Pearl Street Grill and Brewery. They also got ready at Pearl at the Webb Hotel. The hotel has amazing rooms for photos. The lighting and textures are great.

For this, we decided to show a series of three images. Jill is sitting on the window ledge and Neal had her do three different looks! Even though Jill never moved her body, each photo is different. And stunning!

When there is great lighting at a location, it is better to take advantage and stay there. You can do so many different simple poses in a short amount of time as well! I can't wait to see this series of images in their wedding album!

This image of Kellie is so beautiful!

Kellie and Jesse had a gorgeous day for their wedding! Kellie was on her way to the limo, when we had to stop her in the foyer for this shot! Neal shot this from upstairs in the house. He wanted to get the entire entrance in the shot. I love the sun coming in through the doors and pouring onto Kellie! 

Kellie's dress was amazing. From this view, we could showcase the train of her dress. I really like how Neal chose to include the window over the door and chandelier as well. I think it all ties in nicely. We had Kellie look straight ahead. All of her ladies were outside waiting for her to get on the limo and cheering her on!
