Walk through a field of wild flowers. Sit on the beach and listen to the flow of water falling ten feet into our 6000 gallon pond. Smell the roses climbing our custom gazebo. Lean on the split rail fence or sit along the stream and imagine where you will hang this personal piece of art Jeff is creating just for you. This ca
No two people are alike, so at Eclipse Studios, neither are two photo sessions. Senior portraits, for example, reflect the interests that make every teenager unique, whether they're nature lovers, sports fans, drama fanatics, or anything in between. Armed with decades of experience, Eclipse’s photographer applies the skills and sensitivity required of virtually any situation. During boudoir sessions, they let women don their most elegant, but rarely flaunted ensembles and showcase their sensual sides amid flattering lighting and a comfortable environment. And family portraits celebrate the powerful connections between kin, whether in the formal setting of the studio or the candid atmosphere of a backyard get-together.
Byrd Dog Production's Brian Frankforther learned about the power of photography before he started his career behind the lens. At age 19, his father passed away, and he discovered something he never knew: his father was once an avid photographer. Looking through the old photos, Brian recognized the transcendent sentimental power pictures can have, and began to explore photography himself. Today, with an eye for harnessing natural light, Brian helps other families and friends create their own timeless keepsakes in outdoor photo shoots.
Though they hinge on the ceremony, weddings are all-day affairs that last from the first morning preparations to the final dance at the reception. When Scott M. Duncan covers nuptials, he only offers full-day wedding packages that include a mix of candid shots and natural-looking poses. After looking through the full day of pictures that Scott captures, newlyweds can preserve their favorite images as prints, in flat albums, on DVDs, or carved into a nearby hill with a laser satellite.
Scott brings the same professionalism to portraiture sessions, where he photographs newborns, families, and high-school seniors both on-location and inside his downtown Elyria studio. There, he can frame guests against chalkboard walls or various sets, as well as in the studio’s neighboring gated alley, which is replete with brickwork and painted murals.
