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.
DRS Photography's duo of accomplished shutter snappers draws on more than 40 combined years of experience capturing famous performers to tutor pupils in photographic technique before guiding them through practice sessions at their in-house studio. Camera-bearing apprentices absorb rudimentary knowledge and skills during a three-hour course, such as learning about aperture and lenses, controlling shutter speed, manipulating different lighting configurations, composing exciting shots, and persuading Tasmanian devils to sit still during portraits. Subsequent two-hour safari sessions shuffle students among various studio sets based on different themes and images. Though not included with today's deal, customers can also browse an assortment of accessories, such as lenses, cases, film, and time-stopping pocket watches sold in the studio store.
A soft focus surrounds the subjects in Love Photography's images, lending warmness to a close-up of a bride wearing her veil and dreaminess to a sultry couple posing together in a boudoir session. During these shoots, Love Photography’s team of photographers makes subjects feel at ease by scheduling complimentary consultations before the shutter even starts snapping. Like William Tell shooting an apple off his son’s head, the staff believes that practice makes perfect, and they’ve been practicing their photographic aim during weddings, family portrait sessions, and kids’ photo shoots since the studio opened in 1970.
As the sun dips into the horizon, a bride and groom share a quiet conversation, almost forgetting that their photographer, Mike Impens, is mere feet away from them snapping shots of their special day. Mike's photojournalistic and candid approach to portraiture helps him compose photographs that tell a story and organically reveal his subjects’ personalities. Many such scenarios have played out during portrait shoots in Mike's laid-back studio on the southern shore of Lake Erie as well as under his watchful eye during alfresco sessions all around the region. Along with capturing the events that are most important to his clients, such as weddings and family outings, Mike also maintains a portfolio of sports photography, snapping energy-filled action shots of teams and individuals playing hockey, baseball, and soccer.
For years, Oz Digital's Rick and Michele Osentoski have frozen the good times of myriad families, athletes, and high school seniors in bright, frameable pixels. During a one-hour session at either a location of your choosing or at Oz Digital’s fully equipped studio, a skilled shutterbug tamer will rattle off shots of multiple poses with the speed and precision of a camera-fitted, laser-guided cheetah. The striking images are artfully captured with an uncommon eye to provide glimpses of a subject's pleasant manner that can’t be replicated by an emoticon-riddled letter of recommendation. After the shoot, the expert photographers will gather your finest moments in their studio, brand the digital gallery onto a compact disc, and transmit two of your favorite shots into two mantle-worthy 8"x12" prints. In addition, feel free to procure any additional prints at a 25% discount.
The same versatility that helped Lauren McClintock transition from active duty in the army to photography informs her wide-ranging photo portfolio. A wedding photographer with an eye for lovey-dovey moments, McClintock has also drawn on her BS in Photojournalism to capture stark portraits of Cleveland’s homeless.
During her photo shoots, McClintock gets to know her subjects before showcasing their personalities in her portraits. During shoots in the settings where subjects feel most comfortable--which range from church socials to hammocks strung between two recliners—she composes her images to capture authentic moments and sensory memories. She honors the keepsake nature of photographs with high-quality prints, emblazoned on long-lasting acid-free paper.
