Melissa & Timothy E Shoot

Yet another great couple this past weekend! I knew it was going to be a great shoot when Tim told me after about 5 min's of shooting, "Hey man, if we can keep kissing like this, I will shoot all day long!" That's awesome! They are both great people and this is why I love doing E shoots.... getting to know my clients and building that bond with them is the key to great images.
These two had me rolling the entire time we were shooting! Cannot wait to shoot their wedding!

Here are some shots from the shoot! As always, hope you enjoy! Love the Captain Morgan pose at the end....

Cleveland Marathon....

Today's post is a little different than most.... Today I want to congratulate our oldest son for an incredible accomplishment. At 15 years old, he decided to run in the Cleveland 1/2 Marathon yesterday which is 13 miles long. Oh, did I mention that he decided this last week? Yeah.... anyway, he is in good shape and very athletic, but still, this isn't something to talk half hearted. People train for months to do something like this. Well, he'd made a deal with my neighbor that if he could finish the race, he would pay his entry fee.... maybe at 15 and having no job that was all the motivation a kid would need to finish a race like this one and finish he did.... Running in the 15-19 year old division, "The Ryan" as he likes to call himself, finished in 26th place! Over all he came in 1049th out of 9517 runners.... Wow! Great job!

So I will leave you with a few pics from the event. Will be posting a new Engagement Session shoot soon.... Keep an eye out for that!

1st Senior Shoot of 2009!

Thanks so much to Dillon and his mom for coming by yesterday and being the first Sr. shoot of the 2009 season! Had a great time working with them and I am really happy with the images we were able to make. Been working a lot with collages for this year so I would love to hear any feed back about them....

I just happened to have a great prop for this shoot in my garage, I think it really made the shoot! Wonder if I will have many more requests for it?

And finally, here are a couple as is images from the shoot.... Couldn't have had a better weekend for shooting really. Was perfect outside!

Once again, had a great time shooting this weekend, if you would like to see the entire shoot, check out http://www.t1photo.com/ and visit the Event Gallery page....

Sarah & Allen E Shoot

Another fantastic couple and another fantastic day to shoot! Sarah and Allen love Kelly's Island, the water, and sharing a bottle of wine with friends. So with that in mind, we tried to show some of that in their engagement picutes. We started off just down the street from my studio in a small local vinyard....

Sarah & Allen are also big fans of black and white, which I am too.... so for this blog post, I chose to stick with that concept through out....

From the vinyard we went down the street yet again to one of my favorit shooting spots, the lake..... It was a beautiful calm day and would have been a great day to be out on the water. Allen and I were both bummed that we weren't able to be out there.... but soon!

One of the things that I love most about this shooting location is that nature has a way of always changing it around.... If anyone followed my site last year, you probably noticed a huge drift tree that I did quite a few shots on. Well that tree is all but gone now, so the entire landscape of the beach has changed. Being that I do shoot some of the same locations over, I constantly try to mix things up to keep it fresh. I try to use different lighting, different angles, etc to give the shots a unique perspective.

I hope you all enjoyed this shoot as much as I did.... as always, check out http://www.t1photo.com/ to see the rest of the shoot. Thanks for stopping by!
