Jamie and Michael: Akron wedding photography preview

Posted: October 8th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Couples, Photography, Weddings, Windowsill Photography | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , | No Comments »


Outdoor weddings are tough. When the weather cooperates, an outdoor wedding is gorgeous and a ton of fun. You have the freedom to do so much more in the great outdoors than you can in the confines of a church or another indoor venue, and everything just feels so much more open and natural. Of course, when the weather doesn’t cooperate, get ready to adjust on the fly!

Jamie and Michael had a lovely outdoor Akron wedding this weekend, but there were more than a few raindrops to dodge throughout the day. In fact, the start of the ceremony needed to be pushed back a bit when the skies absolutely opened up and drenched the grounds about 15 minutes before Jamie was scheduled to walk down the aisle with her dad. But Jamie, Michael and their families had prepared well, setting up a couple large tents to provide shelter in the case of just such a scenario.

Fortunately, while the rain came down in buckets for a while, it didn’t last long and we were able to enjoy the rest of the day. The soggy surroundings made the pictures a little challenging but we still managed to fill up a couple memory cards! Here are a few highlights from the day with more to follow soon. Check out some of Jamie and Michael’s engagement photos here, and learn more about our Akron and Cleveland wedding photography.

Congratulations, Jamie and Michael!










Ashley and Adam’s Akron wedding

I posted a quick preview from Ashley and Adam’s beautiful wedding at the Red Run Bison and Horse Farm in Marshallville back in June. Now that I’m wrapping up their gallery this week, it’s time to offer up a closer look at this absolutely gorgeous Akron area wedding.

As you can see, this group liked to have some fun, especially the bride. For proof, just check out those shoes she was wearing in one of the photos near the bottom of the post. Nice! As another example, while I was making my way around the venue prior to the reception, taking photos of all the little details that had been planned to perfection, I received word that the bride was requesting my services. Wondering what photo opp was awaiting me, I walked into the room where Ashley and her bridesmaids were getting ready to find a table full of chicken nuggets and French fries. Seems the bridal party had a hankerin’ for some McDonald’s, and Ashley wanted me to capture the carnage. Awesome!

There are so many great shots to choose from but these are some of my absolute favorites, along with the photos from the earlier preview. Also, be sure to check out Ashley and Adam’s engagement pictures. Thanks again for sharing your day with me, guys! (And a special thanks to Spencer, who stepped into the assistant’s shoes for this wedding and did one heck of a job!)

Akron engagement photographer

We headed out for Megan and Ethan’s engagement photos exactly one year to the day before they’d be walking down the aisle and saying “I do.” We didn’t realize, however, that June 21 also was the first day of summer, and fittingly, we were treated to an absolutely gorgeous morning.

I love discovering new locations to shoot, and on this day, we set up shop at the Nature Realm in Akron. As you can see, we had all sorts of great spots to choose from, so many that we ran a little long and I came home with a few more shots than normal. Needless to say, this won’t be my last visit to the Nature Realm.

Here are a few favorites from our Akron engagement photography shoot. Congrats to Megan and Ethan. Can’t wait for your big day next summer!

Akron engagement pictures

When Jamie and Michael chose us to shoot their October wedding, they had already had a family friend do some engagement pictures. But since an engagement shoot was included as part of their Akron wedding photography package, we met at Hubbard Valley Park in Seville and got to know each other a bit more.

The skies threatened to wash us out through the morning and afternoon, but as the day wound down, the clouds parted and gave us a convenient window to snap some pictures of the lovebirds. We chatted about how they met and the evolving plans for their backyard wedding this fall during their Wadsworth engagement photos.

Congratulations to Jamie and Michael! Hope you’re all warmed up for October!

Ashley and Adam: Akron wedding preview

Location, location, location. Ashley and Adam chose the Red Run Bison and Horse Farm in Marshallville for their outdoor Akron area wedding last weekend, which turned out to be a beautiful spot for their big day. Of course, it helped that they were blessed with some picturesque weather, which was kind enough to drop some rain on us while everybody ate their dinner inside the barn before the clouds broke in time to take some final portraits of the new Mr. and Mrs. Jones near sunset.

Here are just a few of the day’s favorites, with more to follow once the final gallery is ready. In the meantime, we posted some of Ashley and Adam’s Wadsworth engagement photos back in May, so be sure to check those out if you haven’t already.

Congrats again to Ashley, Adam and their families!

Windowsill Photography: Proud of our Wadsworth roots

Windowsill Photography in Wadsworth

I am Ohio born, bred and educated, first greeting the world at Medina Hospital in 1977, then going to Medina and Brunswick City Schools before migrating south to Ohio University for four years. My wife and I met during my senior year of high school, we both attended OU and all three of our kids were born in the area.

So when the time came to buy our first house in 2005, we instantly fell in love with Wadsworth. I like to think of myself as a laid-back guy who craves the peace and comfort of a small town versus the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungles that many of my friends seem to prefer. So be it — we’ll take the camaraderie and tranquility of Wadsworth over the chaos of a big city any day, and we love that our kids are being raised to appreciate small town values.

Needless to say, I was pretty excited when I was offered the opportunity to showcase some of the photos from Windowsill Photography at the Whole Day Café (see above) just around the corner from my house in the center of Wadsworth (101 High Street). The Whole Day Café has been one of my favorite spots for years, and as a Wadsworth transplant who’s fallen in love with his new hometown, I’m hopeful that I’ll have the opportunity to work with families, couples and local business owners who are looking for a Wadsworth photographer, a Wadsworth wedding photographer or a Wadsworth family photographer.

I’ve become more involved in the community over the years, and have met lots of amazing people while coaching my kids’ soccer and football teams. Hopefully, Windowsill Photography will offer me even more opportunities to work and interact with my neighbors!
