Love Warms a Winter Day in Garfield Park Reservation

As we inch closer to a much longed-for spring, there’s still time for the wonder of winter. Look what happens when a bright new love is added to a winter scene right here in northeast Ohio. This couple, undeterred by ice, snow, and chill, chose to have their engagement session outdoors. What a fun day it was!  Garfield Park Reservation turned out to be the perfect background for their joyful love which comes through so clearly in the photography.  The arched stone bridge and other physical structures of this background, including the natural formations of snow, ice, and a waterfall, are ideal because they add a dimension of timelessness and history to the scene. That makes the current happiness of the lovers even more apparent.  These engagement photos which capture a once-in-a-lifetime day in their lives will provide memories to warm their hearts and souls in winters to come.

We hope you enjoy these photos. Remember that although smartphones take nice photos, professional photography captures and creates memories at much greater depth and breadth. The expertise a photographer develops over the years of seeing what the camera sees makes a profound difference in quality.  Call us to book your engagement photo or wedding. Spring offers a lovely background too!

In Pandemic Times, Celebrate Every Holiday with Zeal!

Saint Patrick’s Day, March 17, is the next one up so plan to celebrate in some way, even with family and friends at home. Throughout human history, we’ve found solace in celebrating holidays, because it’s celebrating LIFE! And that’s what we’re all trying to do now. Stay alive and healthy, and be there for each other.  Whether or not you’re Irish, Saint Patrick’s Day is a fun one to celebrate. Legend says that Patrick, patron saint of Ireland, drove its slithering reptiles into the sea! No wonder so many people raise glasses of cheer to him on March 17.

Imagine celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day and every other holiday celebrated in the US over the past 103 years?   That would be well over a thousand holidays. A thousand days of good cheer, celebration, love, and sharing. No wonder Miss E has thrived for so long.  If you want to live a long, happy life, celebrate Life and Living every chance you get!

How to Have a Wedding that’s Authentically You

February 12, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

How to Have a Wedding that’s Authentically You

You could almost call it a tradition in America…a woman becomes engaged and starts to create a wedding experience. First, she gathers magazines, the thick costly ones with hundreds of pages, to get ideas. A better way is to sit quietly with yourself and find ideas within yourself. Only you knows you!  Only you and your beloved know what your relationship means and how you want to share it with your world.  Most women underestimate their own creativity and ingenuity. Those thick magazines and Instagram posts about wedding stuff are all meant to sell you things.  Find out what’s meaningful to you before you start buying.

For example, if you and your fiancé love Cleveland and spend your happy hours together doing the things that make Cleveland special, focus your wedding theme on that. If you love nature, use that, or if you love partying, create an event that captures the fun you love to make happen. When people get engaged, they’re all excited and immediately begin thinking about how they’re going to schedule everything, notify everyone and book vendors.  Put the brakes on! It’s best to get clear about what you want. Brides typically take the lead, but the long term marriage will be better if they include the groom from the very beginning. Grooms have dreams too! Movies and commercials have told us for decades that weddings are all about the bride having her special day, but in truth, it should be about the couple, defining their commitment and celebrating their own unique love.

So if you’re getting engaged, or have just gotten engaged, spend a weekend pondering what you both want, how you want to feel after the wedding is over and you’re looking at your photos. Having done that, book your date, and of course…your photographer:)

What is the Reality of Love?

January 29, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

What is the Reality of Love?

Is Love magic?  Or do we just wish it was? A strong case may be made for believing that Love is magical. Here it is: Love can change a person’s mind and heart, sometimes in an instant. An instant! One person reaches for another’s hand, or just touches a finger, for the very first time. Emotion flows quietly through each person as both realize the significance of that act of vulnerability. Time stops. Everything changes. Possibility is born.

Love makes its presence known over and over in the lives of humans. It is the single experience that cannot be invented or fabricated. For humans, Love is the reason humanity keeps going. It just appears, seemingly out of nowhere.  In some of the photos we’ve shared below, we looked for a heart, the universal symbol of love, but in others, we noticed it later during editing. That’s the magic of Love in reality. It just is.

Lo que el mundo necesita ahora ...

Lo que el mundo necesita ahora ...
 

"Lo que el mundo necesita ahora es amor, dulce amor", palabras de una famosa canción cantada por la legendaria Barbra Streisand. Empecemos a ampliar nuestra visión del amor con el próximo Día de San Valentín. En lugar de centrarnos en nuestros seres más queridos, usémoslo para enviar amor a todos, incluso a aquellos que no nos gustan o con los que no estamos de acuerdo. ¿Qué podría doler? El amor es una influencia armonizadora sobre individuos y naciones. Con el Día de San Valentín a un mes de distancia, todavía hay tiempo para pensar en formas en las que puede tocar la vida de su familia extendida, amigos, compañeros de trabajo, conocidos, cualquier persona que le haga la vida más fácil como los repartidores y los trabajadores esenciales que continúan durante esta pandemia. El amor comienza con pensamientos más elevados, pensando en lo que puedes hacer para aliviar las cargas de los demás. No sucede automáticamente, tienes que crear pensamientos amorosos dentro de ti y proyectarlos conscientemente. Comience con sus hijos si es necesario y comuníquese con ellos con la comunicación que funcione mejor para asegurarse de que se sientan amados. Expanda desde allí. Compre San Valentín o haga el suyo propio; envíelos pronto! Marque su calendario para enviar correos electrónicos o fotos o cualquier comunicación que sea amable y cariñosa con cualquiera que pueda. Si publica en línea, publique cosas buenas, amables y felices. ¡Ve a lo grande este día de San Valentín! Piense más allá de sus viejas ideas sobre esta festividad y envíe amor a lo grande a todos los que pueda. ¡Mira lo que pasa! Volverá a usted de formas sorprendentes. En esta ocasión compartimos algunas fotos de la familia donde comienza el amor.

 

 


What the world needs now…

What the world needs now…

“What the world needs now is love, sweet love,” words from a famous song sung by the legendary Barbra Streisand. Let’s start expanding our view of love with the upcoming Valentine’s Day. Instead of focusing on our most beloved, let’s use it to send love to everyone, even those we don’t like or agree with. What could it hurt? Love is a harmonizing influence on individuals and nations.

 With Valentine’s Day a month away, there is still time to think of ways you can touch the lives of your extended family, friends, fellow workers, acquaintances, anyone who makes your life easier like delivery people, and those essential workers who soldier on during this pandemic. Love begins with higher thoughts, thinking of what you can do to ease another’s burdens. It doesn’t happen automatically, you have to create loving thoughts within yourself and consciously project them.

 Start with your kids if needed and reach out to them with whatever communication works best to make sure they feel loved.  Expand from there. Buy Valentine’s or make your own; mail them soon!  Mark your calendar to send emails or photos or any communication that is kind and loving to anyone you can. If you post online, post good, kind, happy stuff! Go Big this Valentine’s Day! Think beyond your old ideas about this holiday and send out love in a big way to everyone you can. Watch what happens! It will come back around to you in surprising ways. 

This time we're sharing some photos of family where love begins.

Los ojos son importantes para fotografías memorables

Los ojos son importantes para fotografías memorables
 

"Los ojos son la ventana de tu alma", escribió Shakespeare hace mucho tiempo. En nuestra fotografía, a menudo nos enfocamos en los ojos por esta misma razón. Los ojos comunican sentimientos para los que las personas no tienen palabras. La alegría de encontrar un alma gemela con quien compartir tu vida, la comprensión de cuánto te quieren tu familia y amigos, la maravilla de cómo llegaste a estar en este lugar y en este momento de la vida. Las bodas son eventos interesantes en los que los novios están contemplando el gran paso que están dando rodeados de todo tipo de actividades. Creemos que es bueno alejarlos del bullicio durante unos momentos de tranquilidad. Muchas parejas, al planificar la fotografía de su boda, quieren docenas de fotos de actividades, familiares y amigos. Sin embargo, el corazón del día y el compromiso adquirido se encuentran a menudo en las fotos contemplativas. ¡Deje tiempo en su horario de fotografía para la reflexión! Una vez que termine el gran día y estés mirando tus fotos en silencio, te alegrarás de haberlo hecho.

Eyes Are Important in Memorable Photography

December 18, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Eyes Are Important for Memorable Photos

"Eyes are the window to your soul," Shakespeare wrote long ago. In our photography, we often focus on the eyes for this very reason. Eyes communicate feelings for which people have no words. The joy of finding a soulmate with which to share your life, the realization of how much your family and friends love you, the wonder of how you came to be in this place and this moment of life.

Weddings are interesting events in that the bride and groom are contemplating the big step they're taking while surrounded by all kinds of activity.  We find it's good to get them away from the buzz for some quiet moments.  Many couples, when planning their wedding photography, want dozens of photos of activities, family, and friends. However, the heart of the day and the commitment being made are often found in the contemplative photos.  Leave time in your photography schedule for reflection! After the big day is over, and you're quietly looking at your pictures, you'll be happy that you did.

Home Weddings – How to Set Up for Photography

November 21, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Home Weddings – How to Set Up for Photography

If you feel it’s best to have a small wedding at home during the pandemic, don’t be disappointed, be creative and innovative!  Most couples look at Instagram, other online sources, or magazines for ideas on how to arrange a home for a wedding. Before you look at other people’s ideas, try to come up with your own. You may be more creative than you think. As you walk through the home and grounds in which the wedding will be held, think first of what might work, instead of what won’t work. Look with fresh eyes of possibility. That’s what we do at Daniel Photo Pro, we look for what’s possible rather than what appears to be.

For compelling photographs, it’s better to concentrate on small spaces within the venue where different types of photos can be taken, rather than trying to make a whole room or a whole house look perfect. A home wedding is naturally going to be more intimate, so take advantage of that and look for spots indoors or out where you can have a variety of photos. You can make a wedding seem much larger by shooting photos in mini settings within the space.  Walk around with your smartphone and shoot lots of potential spots where a photo could be set up.  When you see how a space looks in a photo, you can envision what type of decorations, plants, flowers, or artwork might transform or enhance it for a wedding photo. 

Preparing a home for a wedding often results in meaningful home improvements. It’s a way to have an incredibly personal, intimate, unique, and joyful wedding.
