Spring into Action to Create Your Ideal Wedding

As the U.S. slowly opens up again, thanks to the ever-increasing number of vaccinations, lovers everywhere are thinking about engagements and weddings. Except for the birth of children, weddings are the most splendid way of spreading excitement, happiness, joy, and LOVE! Weddings are a message to the world that no darkness lasts forever; love always triumphs.

If you’re good at organizing, you may not need this, but if you’re good at procrastinating about things you’re not experienced with, this one’s for you!  

The pandemic has produced a huge backlog of weddings. The best of the following will be booked quickly.

Key Things to Do Now:

  • Choose a date - check with the people you most want to attend before setting it
  • Choose a venue
  • Choose a photographer
  • Choose an officiant
  • Choose a caterer
  • Choose musicians

After these are booked, then you can start on the fun parts, like what to wear, table settings, themes, and parties. Congratulations!

Re-marrying? Tips on Weddings for the Previously Married https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2021/4/re-marrying-tips-on-weddings-for-the-previously-married Re-marrying?

Wedding Tips for the Previously Married

Many people who have lost a spouse for one reason or another, don’t think they’ll want an official wedding if they find new love.  However, Love, as the poem Desiderata says, “is as perennial as the grass”.  It comes around again when least expected. What also comes around is the desire to share the joy of a new union with friends and family, so most couples end up planning a wedding though it may be smaller or more intimate than what they had the first time.

For a couple who has been married before, the elements of the wedding are often quite different than first-time brides and grooms. First-timers focus on the theme, decorations, and how the wedding and reception will appear on social media.  Second or third-timers, tend to lean toward making the wedding comfortable for family and friends, a blending that may include people from families of a previous spouse. Yet the desire to make their wedding a reflection of who they are, what they care about, and how they want to be perceived, is strong in a couple who dare to risk marriage again.  Plus, creating a wedding event is fun!  The second wedding can be even more fun than the first because experience lessens the stress.

If you’re re-marrying, don’t be shy about creating a wedding event that will make you smile when you’re looking at the photos years later. Do think carefully about making the event easy for others, especially the elderly (don’t forget they may have hearing issues and they want to hear those vows!), but make it your own unique event.  Love and marriage are as perennial as the grass, so surrender your fears and create a day you’ll treasure.  We’ll be there to photograph it for posterity!

The Eye of the Photographer Sees a Deeper Picture https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2021/4/the-eye-of-the-photographer-sees-a-deeper-picture The Eye of the Photographer Sees a Deeper Picture

It is the rare woman who can look in the mirror and see her own beauty, in part because beauty hides from eyes that are conditioned to see what’s wrong rather than what’s right. Thankfully, on engagement and wedding days, the creative eye of an experienced photographer sees a woman’s inner beauty that radiates from the love and happiness in her heart. In the hands of an excellent photographer, a bride’s broad smile and shining eyes transform her like no amount of makeup ever can. In her preparations for the big event, brides work so diligently on their outsides, but the photographer sees deeper and that is why wedding photos are so treasured.

Although posed pictures are important to record a meaningful event like a wedding for posterity, the dozens of photos captured when the engaged or newly married couple are celebrating with guests often reveal the true story. That is the story of the boundless love shared among the whole group. Unlike the bride and groom who perceive that the most important parts of the wedding are the actual events they’ve prepared, the photographer knows the relationships are where the magic lies.

Daniel of Daniel Photo Pro through his photographic lens sees with artistry that typical wedding photographers don’t have. He sees the event in its wholeness, and in its potential for bringing enduring happiness to an expanded family.  Plus, when Daniel photographs a bride, she always looks beautiful in the finished photos!

Secrets of the Wedding Reception Table https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2021/3/secrets-of-the-wedding-reception-table Secrets of the Wedding Reception Table

Most couples planning their wedding feel an inner urge to offer their guests a wonderful dining experience at the reception. It feels like the payoff for the support of family and friends through the long engagement/wedding process.  Be aware, however, that the dining experience can be the place where the expense begins small but quickly escalates into the stratosphere! It’s also the part of wedding planning that can be most contentious for the bride and groom.  The bride often has a vision of the reception tables created in her mind before any costs were determined, and the groom doesn’t see the importance of it all.

Wedding planning, especially with a tight budget, is so difficult for couples because they have no or little experience.  That makes some want to outsource it all, and that can be a fast way to make a wedding very expensive.  The secret of wedding table decoration is to start as simply as you can, being aware that every item you add for décor, also adds to the price. There's a myriad of ways you can have tables you love while holding down expenses, so explore different approaches before purchasing anything. 

For example, renting napkins might be five times as expensive as making your own from discounted fabric.  Using wildflowers may be far cheaper than florist flowers. Making the cake table glorious and the dining tables very simple can still be beautiful but less costly. The main secret is to take your time and practice restraint in creating your perfect reception. Whatever you come up with will be fine. In reality, the payoff for the guests of being part of a wedding is simply JOY and the realization that a new family is beginning and Life goes on. Photographing that pure joy is the bonus for the photographer and what makes wedding photography so much fun.

Engagement Parties - What to Expect https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2021/3/engagement-parties---what-to-expect Engagement Parties - What to Expect

In these modern times, when a couple decides to marry, there are a multitude of events they have to decide upon long before the wedding. Engagement parties, wedding showers, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and dinners for the families to meet, etc.!  Friends and family often start thinking about how much it’s going to cost them to support the happy couple. Are these events new or have they always been around?

Apparently, they’ve been around since ancient Greece when an engagement party was a commercial transaction between the father who gave his daughter in marriage and the groom. The bride was not present! Times have changed, thank God! In the US, engagement parties have been a tradition in the northeast for a long time. The practice has spread across the rest of the country in recent decades.

An engagement party is intended to announce and celebrate a couple’s recent engagement. Its purpose is also to help families and close friends who will be involved in the wedding get to know each other. The parties are traditionally held in the bride’s home, but some couples may want to throw their own.  If the engaged couple holds the party in a bar or restaurant, they should be thoughtful of the costs for guests.  A simple home engagement party with family and very close friends is safer these days and can be shared on social media so that everyone receives the news.

Remember during your engagement and wedding planning, that much of what couples feel they need for a “successful” engagement and wedding has been developed by the wedding industry. Keep it simple, be thoughtful of family and friends, but do plan to present and preserve your memories with professional photos!

Location Spotlight – Garfield Park Reservation https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2021/2/location-spotlight-garfield-park-reservation 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!

Celebrate St Patrick's Day with Zeal! https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2021/2/celebrate-st-patricks-day-with-zeal 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 https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2021/2/how-to-have-a-wedding-that-s-authentically-you 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? https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2021/1/is-love-magical 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 ... https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2021/1/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… https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2021/1/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 https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/12/los-ojos-son-importantes-para-fotograf-as-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 https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/12/eyes-are-important-in-memorable-photography 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 https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/11/home-weddings-how-to-set-up-for-photography 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.

Bodas en casa: cómo preparar la fotografía https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/11/bodas-en-casa-c-mo-preparar-la-fotograf-a Bodas en casa: cómo preparar la fotografía

            Si cree que es mejor celebrar una pequeña boda en casa durante la pandemia, no se decepcione, sea creativo e innovador. La mayoría de las parejas buscan ideas sobre cómo organizar una casa para una boda en Instagram, otras fuentes en línea o revistas. Antes de analizar las ideas de otras personas, intente crear las suyas propias. Puede que seas más creativo de lo que crees. Mientras recorre la casa y los terrenos en los que se celebrará la boda, piense primero en lo que podría funcionar, en lugar de lo que no funcionará. Mire con ojos frescos de posibilidad. Eso es lo que hacemos en Daniel Photo Pro, buscamos lo que es posible en lugar de lo que parece ser.

Para fotografías atractivas, es mejor concentrarse en espacios pequeños dentro del lugar donde se pueden tomar diferentes tipos de fotos, en lugar de tratar de hacer que toda una habitación o una casa se vean perfecta. Una boda en casa naturalmente será más íntima, así que aproveche eso y busque lugares adentro o afuera donde pueda tener una variedad de fotos. Puede hacer que una boda parezca mucho más grande tomando fotos en mini configuraciones dentro del espacio. Camine con su teléfono inteligente y capture muchos lugares potenciales donde se podría configurar una foto. Cuando vea cómo se ve un espacio en una foto, puede imaginar qué tipo de decoraciones, plantas, flores u obras de arte podrían transformarlo o mejorarlo para una foto de boda.

Piense en una boda de Navidad. ¡No es demasiado tarde! https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/11/piense-en-una-boda-de-navidad-no-es-demasiado-tarde Piense en una boda de Navidad. ¡No es demasiado tarde!

En estos tiempos locos de covid, muchas de nuestras viejas ideas están cayendo en el camino. ¡Como el hecho de que las bodas deben planificarse con meses o años de antelación!

La mayoría de las bodas son más pequeñas en estos días y los proveedores de bodas no están tan ocupados, por lo que es un buen momento para reservar una boda. Si es en cualquier momento durante el mes de diciembre, los colores vibrantes y gloriosos de la Navidad se pueden usar para calentar a todos.

Los rojos y verdes de todos los tonos, junto con el plateado o el dorado, crean una sensación de buen humor. ¡Todos necesitamos buen ánimo estos días!

Estas son algunas de las fantásticas fotos navideñas de Daniel Photo Pro para estimular tu imaginación. Contáctenos para fotos de compromiso o boda en el alegre mes de diciembre. ¡Salud!

Think About a Christmas Wedding https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/11/think-about-a-christmas-wedding Think About A Christmas Wedding. It's Not Too Late!

In these crazy covid times, lots of our old ideas are falling to the wayside. Like the fact that weddings need to be planned months or years out! Most weddings are smaller these days and wedding vendors are not as busy, so it’s a great time to book a wedding. If it’s any time during the month of December, the vibrant, glorious colors of Christmas can be used to warm everyone up. Reds and greens of all hues, along with silver or gold, create such a feeling of good cheer. We all need good cheer these days! Here are a few of Daniel Photo Pro’s whimsical Christmas-y photos to stir your imagination. Contact us for engagement or wedding photos in the merry month of December.  Cheers!

Lugar destacado!  - Lakeview Park, Lorain OHIO https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/10/lugar-destacado---lakeview-park-lorain-county-ohio Lugar destacado! - Lakeview Park, Condado de Lorain OHIO

 

Lorain County Ohio Lakeview Park en el condado de Lorain es una joya poco conocida para muchos habitantes del noreste de Ohio. Es un lugar ideal para una boda al aire libre en todas las estaciones.

El comienzo del verano es especialmente hermoso en el histórico jardín de rosas del parque, pero hay árboles, plantaciones y el lago como fondo todo el año.

El estacionamiento es amplio y hay muy buenas instalaciones de baños. El famoso Lorain Lighthouse, que se ilumina por la noche con luces multicolores, también realza el rico escenario de bodas que ofrece Lakeview Park.

Con 20 acres de terreno bien cuidado a lo largo del lado norte de West Erie Avenue y una playa, Lakeview Park es el favorito de las parejas enamoradas y los fotógrafos.

Location Spotlight – Lakeview Park, Lorain County Ohio https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/10/location-spotlight-lakeview-park-lorain-county-ohio Location Spotlight – Lakeview Park, Lorain County Ohio

Lakeview Park in Lorain county is a little known gem to many northeast Ohioans.  It’s an ideal place for an outdoor wedding in all seasons. Early summer is especially beautiful in the park’s Historical Rose Garden, but there are trees, plantings, and the lake as a background all year. Parking is ample and there are very good restroom facilities. The renowned Lorain Lighthouse, which is lit up at night with multi-color lights, also enhances the rich wedding setting that Lakeview Park offers. With 20 acres of well-groomed land along the north side of West Erie Avenue, and a beach, Lakeview Park is a favorite of couples in love and photographers.

Contact the park for more information here:https: Lakeview Park OHIO

Fotos de boda en la orilla del lago Erie https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/10/fotos-de-boda-en-la-orilla-del-lago-erie  Fotos de boda en la orilla del lago Erie

Durante todo el año, desde el amanecer hasta el atardecer, nuestro magnífico Great Lake Erie ofrece un maravilloso fondo para fotos de bodas y compromisos. Incluso cuando hace frío y hielo en invierno, sigue siendo muy hermoso. La enorme extensión del lago, los colores siempre cambiantes del cielo y el agua, la abundancia de aves y vida silvestre, la arena y las playas rocosas se combinan para crear una sensación de eternidad, ¡que es la forma en que quieres que sea tu amor! Las fotos tomadas en el lago siempre tienen una sensación de libertad, alegría y deleite. Entonces, naturalmente, las parejas sonríen mucho. La formalidad del atuendo de boda yuxtapuesto con la naturaleza salvaje revela un lado de la pareja enamorada que es diferente a las otras fotos. Por supuesto, en una boda, desea muchas fotos de su amada familia y amigos, la ceremonia y la verdadera importancia de todo, pero agregar fotos de la playa al plan fotográfico siempre funciona sorprendentemente bien.

Big Sky, Big Water, Big Love – Wedding Photos on the Lake Erie Shore https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/10/big-sky-big-water-big-love-wedding-photos-on-the-lake-erie-shore Big Sky, Big Water, Big Love - Wedding Photos on the Lake Erie Shore

Year-round, from sunrise to sunset, our magnificent Great Lake Erie provides a marvelous background for wedding and engagement photos. Even when it’s cold and icy in winter, it’s still so very beautiful. The huge expanse of the lake, the ever-changing colors of sky and water, the abundance of birds and wildlife, the sandy and the rocky beaches combine to create a feeling of eternity, which is the way you want your love to be!

Photos taken at the lake always have a feeling of freedom, joy and delight about them. So naturally, couples smile a lot. The formality of wedding attire juxtaposed with wild nature reveals a side of the couple in love that is unlike the other photos. Of course, in a wedding, you want lots of photos of your beloved family and friends, the ceremony and the true importance of it all, but adding beach photos to the photography plan always works out surprisingly well.

At most weddings, especially big ones, the element of Stress overrides the element of Joy. It’s sad because the element of Joy is what a wedding is supposed to be about! So what happens when the wedding is small, outdoors. and held on a gorgeous autumn day? The Joy explodes! This wedding, held October 10, was originally planned for 300 people, but Covid times required a change in mindset, so they decided to have a small wedding immersed in nature now rather than wait. They were rewarded with spectacular weather on their chosen day and boundless happiness. It’s remarkable how beautiful authentic smiles of joy can be on human faces. This couple is obviously madly in love with each other and open to having fun on a day when many couples are stressed out from creating a large and expensive production. The family who did attend showed their concern for others with their masks.

Typically, photoshoots of weddings are more work for photographers than joy, but at this wedding, there was so much light, love, and happiness that even we had a fabulous time!

Location Spotlight – Fellows Riverside Gardens https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/10/location-spotlight-fellows-riverside-gardens Fellows Garden is Ideal for Engagement & Wedding Photos

At Daniel Photo Pro, we encourage couples to consider natural settings for engagement and wedding photography. Why? It's because everyone looks happier and healthier outdoors! Plus in these covid times, it's safer. Our recent wedding photoshoot at Fellows Riverside Gardens revealed a lovely place for a wedding year-round. It's not too late for a fall photo session there.  Fellows is a free public garden located at the northern end of Mill Creek Park, nine miles from the Ohio Turnpike which makes it easy for guests to find. From a photographic standpoint  - it's simply beautiful! 

Fellows has curated garden areas with easy walkways and paths for women in high heels and long dresses, and guests who need them. It also has natural woodsy areas with lovely old shade trees. This variety gives the wedding couple choices for settings that blend with their personal style, especially in the photos of just the two of them.

Fellows Riverside Gardens is open year-round sunrise to sunset. If you want to try it, give us a call for engagement photos or more information.

Fall is Full of Creative Opportunities for Weddings https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/9/fall-is-full-of-creative-opportunities-for-weddings Fall is Full of Creative Opportunities for Weddings

Whoever decided that June is the perfect month for weddings must not have been a Lover of Autumn. Nature is so wonderfully generous with color, texture, depth, and just plain beauty in the fall. It’s the traditional time of harvest, the time when the light changes throughout the day, when leaves become most breathtaking. Everyone in the wedding photos will have the advantage of natural fall lighting, that golden glow that makes people look healthy. A fall or even an early winter wedding outdoors can be more beautiful and less expensive by inviting nature into the planning. In the fall, you can let the colors of your wedding décor or theme come from nature, and stay neutral with wedding attire.

If you want to be married this fall, take a drive through the country (Amish country is especially lovely this time of year in Ohio) and be inspired by nature. You don’t have to buy artificial flowers, plants, grasses or anything fake at all for your wedding if you go to nature. Plus everything you choose will go back to the earth when it’s been used. Even amid the pandemic and all of the discouraging news, nature will still provide the perfect wedding if you let her. Being in love makes all the colors of the world brighter so use this season to allow your imagination to flourish.

2020 Wedding Hot Trend - Wedding Wall Art! https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/9/2020-wedding-hot-trend---wedding-wall-art 2020 Wedding Hot Trend - Wedding Wall Art!
 

 

Wall décor is one of the hot trends of 2020 in the wedding world. It simply requires choosing a few photos to place together artfully on your wall. It’s often a good idea to choose groups in odd numbers, three, five or seven, just like you do when creating settings of plants. The theme of the wall décor can be many different things; they just have to show some coherence so they convey harmony to the viewer. As you look through all of your photos, see if a theme emerges of a few photos that might work together.  It can be just the groom, or just the bride, or the wedding dress, or family members laughing, children, or looks of love. When you’ve chosen the group of photos that you want to use for your wall art, decide how to have them printed in sizes that will work together so that you end up with a big rectangle or square. 

In the past, couples would have one big photo - their “official” wedding photo - and blow it up to a big size. The wedding wall art of today is more creative. It works very well when you choose photos of faces that express a deep emotion or show how the person is deep in thought about this momentous occasion.

If you have ideas about creating a work of wedding wall art before the wedding, talk to your photographer about the theme. He or she can then watch for opportunities to shoot photos of that theme.

Finding Happiness When Covid-19 Spoils Your Plans and Visions https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/9/finding-happiness-when-covid-19-spoils-your-plans-and-visions Finding Happiness When Covid-19

Spoils Your Plans and Visions

If your engagement, wedding, and travel plans, or simply your plans to start a new life have been dimmed by the pandemic, be sure to feel the disappointment – for a short while! The more important allowing, however, is for your natural happiness to bubble up from within you where it hides. It takes more energy to allow happiness than it does to wallow in disappointment. Allowing happiness happens when you accept what you can’t do about your plans and start looking at what’s possible. Think outside your pre-pandemic brain for new ways to approach manifesting your dream engagement, wedding, or honeymoon!

First of all, try to be open to the idea that in the end, different may turn out to be better. Since the pandemic, thousands of couples around the country have still gotten married. The remarkable thing is that many found they had more ingenuity and creativity in planning their events than they thought they had. So, if you’re in the midst of trying to plan your future and you run into pandemic-related roadblocks, try taking some time to release the disappointment and hassle, and then allow your natural happiness to return. Happiness will fuel your creative juices and you will be surprised at how you will begin to see possibilities where the obstacles stood.

The first recorded evidence of a marriage ceremony uniting one man and one woman dates to 2350 BC! That’s well over four thousand years ago.  You don’t have to study world history to know that a lot of bad things like plagues and pandemics have come and gone, yet wedding ceremonies have gotten more popular than ever. As the song says, don’t worry, be happy…and start planning!

Flowers & Plants - how to have a beautiful wedding on a tight budget https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/9/flowers-plants---how-to-have-a-beautiful-wedding-on-a-tight-budget Flowers & Plants - How to Have a Beautiful Wedding on a Tight Budget
Let Nature Help You!

The costs mount up fast when you’re planning a wedding.  These days most people are scaling back costs, but not dreams! Dreams can be adapted to a tighter budget by letting the beauty and bounty of Mother Nature help you curate a wedding and reception venue with color and creativity. Making flowers and plants your primary elements doesn’t mean your florist bill has to be huge.  It will take a little work and planning, and perhaps yard sale hunting for pots, vases. and containers, but the possibilities are unlimited if you’re willing to do the work. 

If your wedding and reception are in the distant future, you can begin now by planting seeds or starter plants inside your home so that by the time the wedding arrives you’ll have some of the flowers or plants you want.  Don’t have a green thumb, time, or inclination to do that?  Then get to know the nature around you, in neighbors’ yards, parks, or any natural place. Look deeper to see what you love. Let people know your plans. You would be surprised at how gardeners you barely know would love to contribute plants and flowers to your wedding effort. It doesn’t have to be color coordinated and matched. In these pandemic times, we all have to stretch our imaginations and think outside the wedding magazines.  The great thing about learning about flowers and plants as you create the elements of your wedding is that you’ll be able to brighten the life and home you’re creating with your new spouse.

Enjoy this nature photography we’ve accumulated over the years. Daniel’s photography of nature in natural light is glorious.

Is an expensive wedding dress necessary? https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/8/is-an-expensive-wedding-dress-necessary Is an expensive wedding dress necessary?

Should you spend money on a white or ivory wedding gown in these financially challenging times?

Keep in mind that the concept of lavish wedding gowns developed not from tradition, but from a wedding industry that created the idea that every woman should look like a princess on her wedding day.  The actual tradition of wearing white originated in Great Britain when Queen Victoria married Prince Albert in 1840.  It was scandalous because until then, white was only for mourning.  Somewhere along the line, black became the color of mourning. The idea of white caught on for wedding dresses after Victoria and extends to this day.  Then came ivory (probably because some women felt disingenuous wearing white which stood for virginity when they were not virgins!).

In truth, there have been millions and millions of brides over time who have married in their best dress, regardless of color or length. When the United States was poised to enter the war in Europe in 1941, thousands of women in love married hastily in suits and dresses with padded shoulders and A-line skirts.

So, in these pandemic times, if your budget is limited, know that creating a wedding dress (or pants!) in your personal style is more important than adhering to either the tradition set by an English queen or the wedding industry.

Your Wedding Album Should Tell the Story of Your Wedding https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/7/your-wedding-album-should-tell-the-story-of-your-wedding Your Wedding Album Should Tell the Story of Your Wedding

Photo albums by Daniel Photo Pro are not just a collection of photos. We curate the photos to tell the story of the wedding. Every wedding is a day filled with the expected and the unexpected! We photograph it all in hundreds of shots, then select 70 to 100 photos and edit them together in a way that brings the day back to life each time you review it.  Here’s a quote from a customer whose wedding we shot a few years ago. She recently contacted us about another event and included this in her email:

“I kept lots of stuff from our 2013 wedding…the dress, invitation, some decorations, photos on flash drives, video, etc..  But as the years go by, the only thing we go back to every year on our anniversary is your wonderful photo album. We get busy and never look back at the other stuff. Just your album. We re-live that wonderful day every year with your album. So thank you again for making it so special.”

Many photographers make the album mostly about the bride because she’s the one that usually drives the wedding planning and cares the most about photos. We include the best pictures of the bride and the groom, but we also take great care to tell the story of the whole family, the friends, the energy, the ambiance, and the spirit of the day. We can also include some engagement photos in the album if we do the session.

This link shows an entire wedding photo album. Take a look! https://www.danielphotopro.com/vinka-book.pdf

The Silver Lining in the Cloud of Weddings during a Pandemic https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/7/the-silver-lining-in-the-cloud-of-weddings-during-a-pandemic The Silver Lining in the Cloud of Weddings during a Pandemic

In regard to weddings and receptions in these times of pandemic, it may feel as if you’ve lost a lot. There is a risk in bringing large numbers of people together. Yet, in every dark cloud, there is a silver lining, and in these times, it may be that Small is Beautiful. Weddings at home may require more creativity to create an ambiance and experience that will fulfill your wedding dreams.  However, it can be done, and it may turn out better than you imagined. In these photos of a recent home wedding, see how much love and joy are reflected in the smiles of the small crowd. In these times, everyone is realizing how precious life is, how special family and close friends are, and that we can live more simply and still be happy.

The Magic Wedding Dress https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/7/the-magic-wedding-dress The Magic Wedding Dress

How do you transform from a bride wearing a wedding dress with a train, into an elegant bride on the reception dance floor without changing dresses?  Save time, money, and stress by choosing a dress that is designed to multi-purpose.

Many brides spend far more than necessary buying a dress for the wedding ceremony and a dress for the reception so they can let loose after all that planning. Plus, changing dresses and shoes, re-touching hair and makeup, can be a pain. Sometimes guests spend too much time waiting on the bride and they get anxious.

A recent Daniel Photo Pro wedding shoot reveals a smart bride who chose a dress with a belt that held the train and added glamour to the dress. After the wedding…voila… off came the belt and she was ready to dance the night away.

Whether you’re planning your wedding at home, outdoors, or in a church, think through every part of the event and how it can be simplified so that you and your beloved can ENJOY your day. Every part of a wedding has a design element, especially the dress, and careful consideration of them can make the day even better.

Weddings in the New Normal...at Home! https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/7/weddings-in-the-new-normal-at-home Weddings in the New Normal...at Home!

Life moves on, and most of us are beginning to adapt to the new normal, which includes the realization that big events probably won’t return for a while. If you’ve had your heart set on a wedding, what do you do?  You simply have to incorporate safety into the planning and focus on family and close friends even more. In the long run, these changes may make weddings more meaningful in terms of the heart.

By having a wedding in a home, whether it’s the one that either the bride or groom grew up in, or a family member or friend’s home, you’ll add a new dimension to the event that can be captured wonderfully in the photography. Years from now, looking back at the photos, you’ll see they’re even more special in that sort of location, rather than in a commercial place you would have rented. “Home is where the heart is,” as the old saying goes.

Here are some ideas from a recent home wedding session that Daniel Photo Pro did. In a home atmosphere, both indoors and out, there are lots of little things that can be photographed artistically. Photography is the only thing from a wedding that truly lasts.  The cake and decorations don’t last. The wedding dresses packed away may last, but they aren’t brought out often.  Great photos are there for the re-living of a life-changing experience. So let’s live the new normal as best we can!

      What will weddings be like for the rest of the year? Postponed? Smaller? Set aside?

Daniel Photo Pro offers a way to have your wedding and still have family members or friends who can’t attend be part of the memories. Our wedding books can incorporate your existing photos of family or friends that can’t attend into your new wedding album. For example, after we photograph your wedding, however small it might be, you can send us photos of those who could not attend and we will artfully edit them into your wedding album. In the end, you’ll have those all-important bride and groom photos but also a book that is inclusive of all those you wanted to involve.

Our editing staff is skilled at integrating the old with the new and maintaining a coherent album that tells your story.

Even if your wedding is very small, we’ll take amazing photos and if you wish, integrate some of your own so that it’s a shared experience.

When Do You Use a Professional Photographer for a Party? https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/3/when-do-you-use-a-professional-photographer-for-a-party When Do You Use a Professional Photographer for a Party?

Major life events such as milestone birthdays, anniversaries, christenings, engagements and, of course, weddings, call for memorable entertainment beyond the ordinary. A great way to honor someone is by providing a professional entertainer in a field they’re passionate about or entertainment that highlights a heritage they treasure. At this party, a Romanian traditional troupe dancer was hired to provide a captivating experience for everyone.

Hiring a professional photographer allows those giving the party and the audience to relax and enjoy the show without having to worry about taking photos. Plus, the photos taken will greatly enhance the memory of the event.

Prints: the Difference between Phone & Photographer Photos. https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/2/prints-the-difference-between-phone-photographer-photos Prints: the Difference between Phone & Photographer Photos.
 

          In an effort to save money, engaged couples sometimes plan to take wedding photos with their phones or to have their friends and family take photos. That works if you want to look at your wedding only on your phone for the rest of your life. However, technology changes rapidly and you may not be able to access them on future phones. Prints of your wedding, if only a few great ones, are timeless treasures.

          Phone photos are stored in a size optimized for appearance on a phone or tablet, but they are vastly smaller in pixel-size than a professional photo. Many couples are not only disappointed, but shocked, at the loss of quality when they try to make prints or photo albums from the small pixel photos. If you make an 8x10 print of a phone photo and compare it to one made from a professional photo, you see that the detail, clarity, color and depth are greatly diminished. The phone photos almost always look washed out when printed.

          At Daniel Photo Pro, some of our brides and grooms want phone photos integrated into their wedding albums with our professional photos. It is not possible to integrate them and to maintain the high quality of the images. We often keep in contact with wedded couples we’ve worked with because they come back for anniversaries and christenings. We’ve been told that as the years go by, they rarely look back at wedding photos on their phones or computers, but the printed ones they’ve framed and especially the hardcover Photo Books we’ve created are what they look at often or keep displayed.

How Do Documentary Style and Artistic Style Differ in Wedding Photography? https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/2/how-do-documentary-style-and-artistic-style-differ-in-wedding-photography How Do Documentary Style and Artistic Style Differ

in Wedding Photography?
 

 

          Most wedding photographers do sequential shots that show each phase of the wedding from start to finish. That’s “documentary” style. The good ones also try to bring an artistic touch to as many shots as possible while they’re doing the sequential photography. It’s helpful if a bride and groom think in advance about the kind of photography that’s meaningful to them. Is the event itself super important, or are creative shots that capture the spirit of their love more important? If the couple values art and creative images in their everyday lives, they’re likely to want it in their wedding photography. If they primarily value relationships, the sequential photos that make sure every participant and specific groups of people are photographed, is foremost.

         Our experience shows us that most couples do not take enough time to think about the photography until after the wedding. Then they realize how important it is now that the event is over and all they have for years to come are the photos! 

         It takes TIME to do the extra shots that have an artistic touch, so if the wedding couple can allow the photographer a little extra time in each phase of the wedding to be creative, the end product will be richer than they imagined.

         Daniel Photo Pro strives to add artistry, creativity and uniqueness to as many shots as possible.  It’s what makes doing photography a joyful experience. He also strives to create a wealth of photos from a wedding that will thrill the bride and groom giving them more than they knew they wanted.

How to Make the Most of Your Bridal Show Experience https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/2/how-to-make-the-most-of-your-bridal-show-experience How to Make the Most of Your Bridal Show Experience

       

 

        Oprah often says “fortune favors the prepared mind”. Attending a bridal show or fair takes a large part of a day of your life! Go prepared and use the time you spend effectively. Bridal shows are fun and filled with giveaways and edible delights (which is a bit ironic since most brides want to lose weight), but they can also be an excellent resource if you are a bride with a wedding to plan on top of your already busy life.

        Take some time to think through what you want to accomplish at the show, and make a list of the key types of vendors you want to see.  All shows have an online list of vendors that you can view in advance. Often brides attend shows for ideas in addition to finding out more about specific vendors. When you first arrive, stroll through the whole show just looking at things which appeal to your senses.

Try not to get distracted by all the freebie stuff; look for ideas which might fit into your overall wedding plan.

        Then, if you have a list of vendors that you want to speak to or see more of their work, seek them out. Take notes on your phone or on paper. Days or weeks after the show, you may not remember what impressed you about a particular vendor. Try not to start with price, when you’re talking with vendors. Try to understand what value they bring to you before price. Any really good vendor will have many questions for you before they talk price. If you want a unique wedding, don’t go for the cookie cutter packages right off the bat. Talk first!

        In the case of Daniel Photo Pro, you’ll find we enjoy questioning brides about what they want, rather than showing them what we have done. Our work speaks for itself. The more we get to know you and your groom and your dreams, the more we will create photography which you will love and cherish.

What Men Want in Their Weddings? https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/1/what-men-want-in-their-weddings What Do Men Want In Their Weddings?

Weddings are all about the brides - right? No! The bride is half of the couple. The other half, the groom, has dreams and wishes for this big event in his life too. Many grooms, however, feel overwhelmed by the exuberance with which their brides-to-be (and her mother and grandmothers, aunts, sisters and friends) approach the wedding planning. So, the grooms back off. “Just tell me where to stand,” grooms have been heard to say.

Many grooms believe the brides and their entourages make everything so complicated, and care so much about the tiny details of things like table settings, that the big picture is overwhelmed by the details. To the groom, the big picture, is a day full of friends and family that have joined together to celebrate the couple starting a new life together. The bride typically sees an entire day where everything, including herself, has to be perfect.

So what do grooms want? They want the bride to relax and let go of the perfectionism that created “bridezillas”. They want their beloved to enjoy the day and to realize that she is already just what he wanted.  Many brides-to-be are so influenced by the concept of over the top Instagram photos that they forget the day is all about love. Men want women to let go of perfection, and to enjoy themselves.

By the way, the photography that comes from a day where the bride and groom are focused on each other and are joyful, rather than stressed, always results in more wonderful photography.

Love is Everywhere, Everywhere! https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/1/love-is-everywhere-everywhere Like Air, Love is Everywhere!

Why do engagements and weddings, Valentine's Day and anniversaries, chocolates and flowers, and a hundred other celebrations of romantic love persist? You might think it's marketing, but it's not! It's because love is as pervasive as air. It's everywhere. Why when a couple has billions of other humans to choose from, do they find each other?

How do we find the heart song that harmonizes with our own? Who knows? Love is magical and it will never, ever go away for good. 

At Daniel Photo Pro, we celebrate love, especially love that brings friends and families together in ways that build memories and deepen relationships. Love is everywhere you look, if you only look!

What Do You Value in Your Wedding? https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2020/1/what-do-you-value-in-your-wedding What Do You Value in Your Wedding?

What you value should be reflected in your planning!

What you think you value in your thoughts and what you value in your heart (when you’re honest with yourself) may not match. Since weddings take lots of time and money, it’s important to reflect on what you truly value, and to communicate your values to your photographer. When you are clear about your values, you’ll end up with photos that truly reflect you and your beloved. Wedding photography is the only thing in a wedding that will be revisited again and again over the years. Dresses go in storage, gifts get used up, but wedding photos remain treasures.

What do we mean by values? If you’re a creative person, the artistry in the photos will be a value. If you’re a “people” person, you’ll want the photos of family and friends to be an emphasis for the photographer. If you’ve dreamed your whole life of your day as a Bride, YOU may be the thing you value, and the photographer should know that. Don’t be judgmental about your values. Just be clear about them. You don’t have to tell anyone but your photographer to make sure the photos reflect what's in your heart. 

Most wedding photographers try to shoot the sequence of events at a wedding and to get photos of the family and key friends attending, and all of the traditional photos (kiss at the altar, first dance, etc.) but when we know what the bride and the groom care about most, the results are deeply satisfying.

Of all the wedding gifts you will receive, the one you may enjoy the most often is your photographs!

Most newlyweds proudly hang their best wedding photos in their homes not only to remember that most special of days, but as a reminder that they are now a couple on the deepest level and part of extended families.

Wedding photos are treasures that last longer than a lifetime, because they’re passed down to children and grandchildren (who enjoy seeing the strange clothes their ancestors wore). Choose your photographer carefully and consider suggesting that family or friends consider payment of either all or part of a photography package as a wedding gift.

The Great Makeup Dilemma https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2019/11/the-great-makeup-dilemma The Great Makeup Dilemma

One of the trends in makeup today is no makeup! Lots of people want to look natural so they come to photography sessions with no makeup. Here’s the challenge with that idea: In everyday life when you look at someone, you see the whole person and the background around them. Unless you are studying his or her face, you don’t notice minor flaws because that’s just the person. However, in a photograph, those same flaws, which are nothing in real life, stand out because people look more deeply at a photo than they do at a real person. In a photo, you are not going to look exactly the same as you do in real life. 

Photo editing can minimize flaws which stand out, but to do it so that the photo doesn’t look “photo-shopped” is time consuming and costly. Most people think they want to look natural in a photo, but when they see their natural self, they are surprised because a minor flaw may stand out that they haven’t even noticed before. So to have photography that looks like you in real life, it’s best to use a little bit of makeup to minimize those minor flaws.

Here’s an easy test. Take a photo of your face with no makeup, then add just enough to minimize any flaws you see. You don’t have to remove them, just minimize. Then re-take the photo with your phone and see if you look more truly natural. The camera sees everything with no judgment. It wants the great color of your eyes to show up as well as the pimple on your neck. So it’s best to give the camera the face you want it to see.

Creating Save the Date Cards that Set the Stage! https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2019/10/creating-save-the-date-cards-that-set-the-stage Creating Save the Date Cards that Set the Stage!

What should happen soon after the wedding proposal has been made and accepted?

Three things should be selected quickly: the date, the venue, the officiant who will marry you.

Those are followed quickly by confirming the availability of your chosen wedding party and must-attend family.  And then….DRUMROLL….it’s time for the Save the Date card to be designed!

“Save the Date” is a fairly recent trend that is courteous because it gives people a heads up so they won’t arrange trips or vacations that conflict with the wedding date. It’s also become the way to generate excitement about the wedding. Creating or choosing a Save the Date card design which may include a photo, is the first step in the creative process of planning a wedding.

Photos of the betrothed couple make the cards especially meaningful because people LOVE photos of their friends and family.  You can use an existing photo, or have one taken especially for the Save the Date card. At Daniel Photo Pro, we offer free engagement photo sessions which provide the perfect photo for a Save the Date card. We can edit the photo to have the right image requirements for the card you’ve chosen.  Black and white, tinted photos, sepia and other creative enhancements can make your Save the Date card one which tells the invited guests that this is going to be one special wedding!

Below are some variations of a Save the Date photo taken from engagement sessions. The fun has begun, let your creative juices flow!

How to Discuss Editing with Your Wedding Photographer https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2019/10/how-to-discuss-editing-with-your-wedding-photographer How to Discuss Editing with Your Wedding Photographer

The photography aspect of wedding planning can be difficult because the average bride and groom have never had an occasion to hire a professional photographer.  There’s the stress of choosing a photographer, which often involves looking at lots of websites, the stress of deciding how much to spend, and the stress of understanding what you will get for your money.  The editing aspect of photography is very challenging because the average person has no idea how much time editing takes, what can be edited without losing the authenticity of the picture, and what really makes a great picture.

The Daniel Photo Pro team produces excellent wedding photography because Daniel takes hundreds and sometimes thousands of shots, and his in-house photo editor has lots of shots to choose from in the editing process. The expertise of photo editing is in knowing what not to edit, as much as what needs to be tweaked. Inexperienced photo editors over-edit which leads to pictures that look photo-shopped and fake. Daniel Photo Pro edits just enough to make a photo appealing to the eye, but not so much that it looks photo-shopped.  We will photo edit so that the bride and groom look their best, but still like themselves.  After all, they fell in love with each other as they were!

The samples below show some of our before and after edits.

Choose Decorative Items with Photography in Mind https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2019/9/choose-decorative-items-with-photography-in-mind Choose Decorative Items with Photography in Mind

Wedding planning can be so much fun, especially when it comes to choosing the decorative items that add your very personal style to the event. Every single wedding is unique. Even if it is held in a venue used only for weddings, every wedding is different because every bride and groom has unique tastes and style. Often brides try to make the event perfect, but that makes it stressful. It’s more important that the wedding style be you. Having a wedding that’s reflective of your personal style is more enjoyable for the guests too. They get to know you and your beloved better.

Every wedding has to have the basics – clothes, tables, chairs, flowers, cake, etc., so it is in choosing the small decorative items, or having the photographer add flair in the way he shoots the items, that can result in photos that become such treasured memories. There is an old saying that still rings true  “little things mean a lot”. So when you choose the decorative items for your wedding or engagement party, consider how each one might look in an individual photograph.  Here are some examples from a recent Daniel Photo Pro wedding.

Fall in Ohio - Great for Engagement & Wedding Photos https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2019/9/fall-winter-weddings-are-beautiful-in-ohio Fall in Ohio

Great for Engagement & Wedding Photos

Northeastern Ohio is blessed with so much beauty in fall and even in snowy winter, it’s easy to create weddings that take advantage of the colors and beauty of Mother Nature. Autumn is harvest time so everything from apples to squashes to pumpkins to corn stalks is available!  Flaming tree colors, clear starry skies and crisp cool nights provide variety for creating a wedding experience that guests will enjoy.  In winter time, the sun shining on a frozen Lake Erie provides a spectacular background for couples in love to huddle together for a fun engagement session.

At DanielPhotoPro, we love the look created from natural outdoor light in the fall. Fall and winter weddings usually mean that more venues and vendors are available than in the super busy summer months, so it can be easier to plan a wedding then. Contact us to explore ideas about your fall or winter wedding.  You’ll be surprised at how fun the experience will be.

Location Spotlight – Holden Arboretum https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2019/9/location-spotlight-holden-arboretum Choose an Outdoor Setting that Fits Your Style

At Daniel Photo Pro, we encourage couples to consider natural settings for engagement and wedding photography whenever possible, because everyone looks better and happier outdoors.  However, there are two major differences to consider in choosing a location. There are planned and curated outdoor settings like formal rose gardens and venues created for photography, or there are outdoor settings designed by Mother Nature. Both are good because of the availability of natural light, but couples should consider which type reflects their personal style.

Couples who love the outdoors and adventure, might prefer outdoor settings that are simply natural. These can be great for engagement photos, but with weddings, you do have to keep in mind that guests must to be able to walk to the setting easily.  Couples who are more inclined toward urban sophistication, might prefer more formal outdoor settings.

Places like Holden Arboretum in Kirtland offer both types. For engagement photos, there are wonderful places for original photography in every season. See our recent photos below. For weddings, there are Garden locations that the Arboretum rents. If you’re getting married in the spring or summer, consider engagement photos at Holden right away. Fall is here!

Weave Your Heritage into Your Wedding Theme https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2019/8/weave-your-heritage-into-your-wedding-theme Weave Your Heritage into Your Wedding Theme

A wedding joins new families together and expands them both.  That’s why there is great celebration, including photography of every person and every part of the experience. In America, everyone has a heritage and ancestors that came from somewhere (unless you’re Native American with a family that’s been here thousands of years!). It can be fun to research that and bring some of it to life in your wedding planning.

Whether your ancestors were Europeans, Asians or Africans, or just many generations of garden variety Americans, it can be fun to add some elements to your wedding to include that heritage. The wedding photography can be enriched with such elements as the photos below show.  Everything in the world, from hands decorated with henna (an Indian tradition), to the blessing of the crowd (a Romanian tradition) to American Western rustic style, to big city sophistication, can make a wedding interesting for guests.  They can get to know the families better and leave the wedding glad they came.

The fun part of wedding planning can be when the bride and groom have different cultural heritages. They can often be blended together with symbols and foods.

Think beyond the wedding hype in magazines and online. 

Find inspiration in your own heritage and that of your betrothed!

How to Communicate with your Photographer https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2019/8/how-to-communicate-with-your-photographer How to Communicate with your Photographer

Wedding planning involves research and a mass of choices to be made. Most brides-to-be plan their weddings while trying to maintain jobs and normal life which are already hectic. They have long lists to check off as they choose venues and vendors. To make it worse, there’s the stress of the impending deadline.  When it comes to the selection of a photographer though – brides need to PAUSE, take a breath, and think about what they want the photography to express about their special day, their relationship, and their personalities. Do they want photography that simply documents the event, creative photography that conveys the spirit of the relationship, or photography that focuses on something particular like family.

Most brides, in their rush to make progress on their check-off lists, begin their communication with potential photographers asking about price. Remember though, that wedding photography is one of the only things from a wedding that lasts for years. Flowers, cakes, table settings, decorations, etc., all end with the wedding. The wedding dress may be carefully saved, but the photos are the one thing that a couple will go back to over and over during their marriage.  

Before you email a dozen photographers asking about availability and price, think about what you want.I f the photographer is available on your date, begin a conversation with the photographer more consciously. Most brides text or email “send me more details” leaving the photographer to wonder what details they want? At DanielPhotoPro, we welcome emails and phone calls just to explore ideas about the photography.

Talking things over early in the process will work to your advantage. At DanielPhotoPro, we’re more likely to throw in a free engagement session or other free item when we’ve developed a relationship with the bride and groom, by talking back and forth about what they want. Our mission is for the happy couple to be ecstatic about their photos.  Most photographers can work with a bride’s budget, but most brides set a budget with no thought of what they actually want! Contact us for easy conversation and we will help you think through your photography so that it will make you smile years from now.

Do Your Guests a Favor! Create Your Own Custom Photo Booth Inside or Outside https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2019/7/do-your-guests-a-favor-create-your-own-custom-photo-booth-inside-or-outside Create a Photo Booth, the Inexpensive Way to Turn Up the Fun for Guests

One inexpensive way to create a super fun wedding experience for your guests is to create a “photo booth”. By that we don’t mean a dark cubicle that they cram into, but a simple background that can be created using materials from Home Depot or local crafts stores. Daniel Photo Pro would photograph the guests in the booth along with doing the rest of the wedding photography. People love to pose and a photo booth or background setup makes their photos so much better than selfies.  Most brides want photos of all the guests, and often send the photographer from table to table. However, photos with dirty glasses in the foreground and people leaning every which way are not nearly as good as photos in a customized photo booth. For guests that aren’t dancers or drinkers, the photo booth experience can be one of the most enjoyable parts of a wedding and reception.

Party supply stores like Party Place and Oriental Trading, as well as Michael’s, have background and scene setters around many different themes. Daniel Photo Pro can photograph guests with the bride and/or groom or without. We will help you brainstorm setting up your personal photo booth experience.

Maternity and its Beauty https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2019/7/maternity-and-its-beauty Maternity and its Beauty
 

Bringing a new life into the world is magical. It's a magic that we are all trying to capture for eternity.

The magnificent Sunflower field has once again brought magic to the city of Avon, Ohio.  We are greatly blessed to have this glorious field of yellow which provides a spectacular background for pictures, in our community. The most beautiful part is that it was planted in the memory of a young girl who died of brain cancer.  The spirit of Maria lives on in the joy her Sunflower field brings to others. This unusual idea of honoring a child started small but has grown stronger as more people have become aware of the field which is replanted and enlarged each year. Let the beauty and magic of nature transform your body and heart so that you may live the healthiest and best life you can.

Why Create A Printed Photo Album? https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2019/7/why-create-a-printed-photo-album Why Create A Printed Photo Album?

Gatherings of family and friends for special occasions is essential for a healthy community in every culture. Baptisms, christenings, birthdays, engagements, weddings, memorials, all these things are milestones in life which people want to share. Everyone takes hundreds of photos on their phones, but these special occasions often get lost and diminished in importance in the thousands of photos on a phone or computer. More and more people are finding that the lack of printed photos is unsatisfying. On the other hand, printed photos fade and get lost. Our photo albums, composed of photography we take of special occasions, are edited and printed on high quality paper in hardback form. They last far longer than photos printed at the drug store, and they become very special mementos in a family.

A young child will enjoy looking at an album of his or her baptism as a little baby surrounded by family. A 30 year old woman will love having a printed album of her Sweet 16 self. Daniel Photo Pro albums solve the dilemma of how to preserve photos of occasions that commemorate a moment in time. We edit them carefully so that the spirit of the occasion and the specialness of the people present are preserved.

The old photo books where you got photos printed and then slipped them under a clear plastic aren’t satisfying. The photos age and the plastic yellows. Our printed photo albums will last generations.

Years from now, this baby and his family will gather around this album and relive those beautiful baby days and how the community welcomed him.

Location Spotlight: Lakewood Park https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2019/7/location-spotlight-lakewood-park Love in Lakewood Park!

Location Spotlight

Lakewood Park is the crown jewel of the Lakewood Parks system which makes it an ideal place for engagement or wedding photography. On the shore of Lake Erie, it offers the best of both worlds – our great lake with views of downtown and lots of green space. Originally built in 1918, Lakewood Park has a rich history and has been continuously improved over the years.

Nature makes everyone feel and look better so photography in a beautiful park is always a good idea. Natural light and the soft blended colors of nature during the day and in the evening, showcase the joy of lovers.  Lakewood Park is beautifully landscaped and has many different areas for poses with different backgrounds. It’s also part of a wonderful city full of variety and authenticity. Below are a few of the photos we recently took of an engaged couple in Lakewood Park.

A Photographer’s Dream… https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2019/7/a-photographer-s-dream A Photographer’s Dream…

After a long summer’s day, the moments when the sun slows set are magical.

One can imagine the sun imitating the flames of love that have burst from a newly engaged couple.

It can also be said that once in a while the sun and sky become one like the hearts of lovers.

With sunset, Nature gives us something beautiful enough to stop us from our busy way of being in the world.

Everyone should just stop and enjoy sunset as it is always as unique as people are.

Do not lose any of it. Look for the perfect one, as you look for the perfect half of your heart, and when you find it hold on to it for dear life, and you will keep the memory of the perfect sunset forever.

Cleveland Cultural Gardens offer a wealth of photo opportunities for engagement and wedding photography. The Italian Garden, in particular, has more large stone structures than most, so it provides great backgrounds. There's something timeless about old, weathered stone that blends wonderfully with the new hope and promise of an engagement or wedding. Plus, the stone structures are long lasting and solid, just like you want the sacred relationship you are entering to be. Below are engagement photos that show both the stoneworks and the beautiful trees and flowers of the garden.

Location Spotlight: Fortier River Park in Olmsted Falls https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2019/3/location-spotlight-fortier-river-park-in-olmsted-falls Engagement or Wedding Photos with Natural Beauty or Rustic Charm in Olmsted Falls

Ohio is blessed with beautiful parks and David Fortier River Park is no exception. The stone and covered bridges, forests, waterfalls, river rock and panoramic views make it ideal for engagement or wedding photos in the natural world. For some reason, photography of lovers in nature's realm has a certain timelessness to it. Nature is forever as you intend your love to be.  

Having your photography done in  nature with its exquisite light makes everyone look healthier too. Fortier Park is photogenic in all seasons, but spring is perfect because of the fresh green hues in the trees and plant life. It's fun to shoot photos in nature as well. Everyone is more relaxed. 

Consider Fortier River Park on Water Street for your upcoming engagement or wedding photography with Daniel Photo Pro. With such a variety of locations within the park to serve as your background, your photos will be unique to you and you will love them!

One of the pleasures of being a wedding photographer is seeing the unique ways in which each couple creates their experience.  Since the basics are often the same - ceremony, reception, family photos etc., it's the little things that can make lasting memories.  Creating decorations, gifts, little flourishes that capture your personalities and the various aspects of your relationship often make some of the best photos.  Creativity doesn't have to be costly.  Simple, natural things put together can give your guests a memory of what you and the day are all about.  Here are some fun photos of personality coming through.

Refined Elegance – 2019 Wedding Trend https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2019/1/refined-elegance-2019-wedding-trend Creating the New Refined Elegance on a Budget

This year, wedding décor is moving away from overly busy, cluttered looks to refined elegance. The trick for brides-on-a-budget is to create it with limited funds. Below are ways to create the look of elegance without the expense. Remember “elegance” can mean cultured, but it also means “purified” as in taking out the unnecessary elements.

This trend is a great thing for wedding photography as well. With a simpler, elegant style, the photos capture the emotions of the people and the feeling of the experience on a beautiful background, but not so cluttered that the viewer gets overwhelmed. Remember, the wedding event is one day, but the photos last forever. When you look at them on your anniversaries, you want to see the people, the smiles, and the happiness. The table design and decorations lose significance over the years. The faces grow in significance.

  • You don’t have to choose a “theme”. The concept of themes was developed by the wedding industry to sell more stuff.
  • Choose to have minimum décor with softness and light as your color palette. Blush colors and pastels are easier to work with than strong colors. There is also a trend of mixing black accents with soft colors, but it has to be done very carefully. Less is more!
  • Don’t get stuck in concepts like traditional, modern, contemporary, etc. You can blend them. Just don’t overdo it.
  • Do one thing that is universally thought of as elegant such as monogrammed napkins. Buy enough to last for years in your home. However, one thing is enough!
  • Candles always add romance, but both candles and holders can be mixed in height and color. This is another place where you have to be careful. It’s a fine line between romantic looking and cluttered.
  • Clear glass is inexpensive and can be found everywhere from flea markets to Wal-mart. It adds light and depth and the reflections from candles can be rich.

Location Spotlight: Cultural Gardens, Cleveland https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2018/11/location-spotlight-cultural-gardens-cleveland Hold Your Dream Wedding Outdoors in Cleveland's Cultural Gardens

Begun in the late 1890's, the Cleveland Cultural Gardens are unique in the world. Over 30 gardens are completed with eight more in development, representing many of the city's 120 distinct ethnic groups. Several of the gardens are beautiful locations for weddings or special event photos. You do need to get a permit from the city to hold a wedding in one of the gardens so do that right away. In addition to providing unique backgrounds for weddings, the rich history and tradition of the gardens adds another dimension to the wedding. The gardens with fountains, like the Italian Garden, are particularly good for weddings, but also in high demand. If northeast Ohio is to be your home after you're wed, beginning your future at such a meaningful location is a great idea.

Take a drive or a walk through the gardens when you are considering your wedding plans. They can be very lovely in spring, summer and autumn because of all the foliage and flowers.  They are part of Rockefeller Park, right off of the East Shoreway. The upper half of the Gardens is on East Boulevard, starting at Superior Avenue and going north past St. Clair Avenue.  The lower half is on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, from the Shoreway on the north going south toward Superior Avenue.

Laid Back Family? Go Rustic for your Wedding Style! https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2018/9/laid-back-family-go-rustic-for-your-wedding-style Laid Back Family? Go Rustic for your Wedding Style!

Most couples like to choose a wedding theme that works with their extended family style. Rustic is one of the most fun to do and to photograph. There's something about barns and hay, denim and boots, dogs and laughing kids that make a wedding authentic and fun. The rustic style also takes a bit of the stress out of planning and holding the reception because nature leans toward a certain disorder. Guests like it because they don't have to dress up in fancy clothes that they can't wait to get out of. With rustic style, the bride in a beautiful gown stands out like an angel when all of the guests are wearing jeans. Consider rustic style if you and your beloved are nature people.

Let Your Love Show in that First Dance! https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2018/8/let-your-love-show-in-that-first-dance Let Your Love Show in that First Dance!

After the seriousness of the wedding ceremony, and getting the reception off to a good start, newlyweds can be stressed by the time the First Dance rolls around. That can be unfortunate because this is the moment photographers wait for – when love and romance should be written all over their faces and in their body language as they draw close together. Try to remember to let go of all of the wedding hoopla and get lost in each other when it comes time for your First Dance. You want your love and joy to be reflected in your pictures so be loving and joyful! The wedding crowd may be watching you, some with teary eyes, but forget about them and just be with your beloved in that few moments, remembering how lucky you are to have found each other and to be at the beginning of a long life together. Your photos will capture that spirit and you’ll be glad you did when you see them.

Location Spotlight: Willoughby Ohio https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2018/6/location-spotlight-willoughby-ohio Feature Series - Spotlight on Locations

Willoughby, Ohio

In real estate, the big thing is location, location, location!  It can be the same with engagement photography. A location that is meaningful to you and your fiancé will make the photos more special in the years to come.  Whether it’s a city center, a park or a place that both of you value, the background of your loving poses adds elements of time, season and depth to your photos. Daniel’s photos are meant to last a lifetime…choose locations that will make you smile as the anniversaries add up.

Willoughby, Ohio is one of those towns built in the 1850’s that still holds some of its original charm and flavor. The historic district which covers nine blocks includes a variety of shops and residences and a public park. Thankfully, historians have preserved much of it, so it’s a great place for photography that blends the old with the new (the new being you and your fiancé!).

A bonus is that there is a castle nearby called Squires Castle. How many towns in America have an authentic castle?

Here’s the legend of Squires Castle.

What’s the Appeal of Black & White Photos? https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2018/6/what-s-the-appeal-of-black-white-photos What’s the Appeal of Black & White Photos?

The wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in 2018 revealed that the royal couple was enthusiastic about black and white photography. Instagram photos from Kensington Palace included stylish B&W shots.

We live in a very colorful world, so what is so intriguing about black and white photography?

Black and white photos have a timeless quality to them, they seem to cement a scene in time, like an engraving in stone. There’s something “forever” about them because they’re a blend of reality and mystery. Why do our brains perceive it that way?

The first newspaper to publish a photo (in B&W of course) was in 1880. From then until 1977 when color photos began to appear regularly, people associated something “newsworthy” with a black and white photo in the newspaper. Even if the current generation has lived in a colorful world since birth, they’ve studied history in school and seen the old B&W photos.  We’re all wired to perceive B&W photos as important, historical and newsworthy.

Is it easy to turn color photos into B&W treasures? No, it usually requires editing and an “artist’s eye”. The photographer or photo editor has to work with light and shadowy areas, contrasts, and to figure out what kind of “look” the photo should have.

If you think you want some B&W photos in your wedding or engagement photography, take a little time before the photo session to look at existing photos and think about what you want to create with your B&W. The photographer can keep that in mind during the photo session so that post-session editing will be easier.

Photography is a curious thing…sometimes the stars align and all of the elements come together in a soft, natural elegance that you don’t see when looking at the person or scene in reality, but when the photos are done, there it is.

Ava chose a simple peasant dress in muted tones, soft makeup, un-fussy hair and bare feet for her photo session. This simple approach blended with the natural textures of tree trunk and grass, and tranquil light make all of the elements of the photo work together like a fine piece of art.  It’s soothing. Why is it that some of the most exquisite things in life are the simplest?

When thinking about your engagement or wedding photography, imagine what you want, and then start scaling it back, removing elements that aren’t truly necessary so that the important ones have room to glow. Light, the first element of creation, is always important, so spend some time thinking about the time of day or evening that the photos will be taken. Keep it simple and watch what happens!

Your Wedding Day is the Launch of your Married Life! https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2018/4/your-wedding-day-is-the-launch-of-your-married-life Never forget that your wedding day is the beginning of your married life. It can be the launch pad of a long life of cherishing, supporting and loving each other with all of your being. Too many brides and even some grooms get so wrapped up in the details of the wedding that they forget or are too stressed, to shower their beloved with love on their wedding day.

Guests watch to see whether the bride and groom will gently feed the wedding cake to each other with joy, or cram it into each other’s mouths. It’s an omen! As a bride, our culture has convinced you that it’s all about you on this day. Of course it is…to a degree. It’s also about the memories of this day that you are creating for your new husband or wife.

  How will he or she remember this milestone day of their lives? How you treat your beloved on your wedding day is how you will treat him or her during your marriage.  Make sure the day and your actions come from the love in your heart.  You’ll see that love reflected in your wedding photography too.

Little Things Mean a Lot https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2018/3/little-things-mean-a-lot Just like in real life, photos of the little things often touch our hearts more than photos of the grander things. The first time someone reaches for your hand, the first time your eyes meet, the first time the little brain in your heart sends messages all over your body that something big has happened. The first laugh together, and of course, the first soft kiss! We're emotional beings so photos that stir up the remembered feelings of those simple moments become our greatest treasures. A photographer that's a romantic person whether or not his camera is around, captures the little things, the tiny moments.

Lake Erie Locations for Romantic Photos https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2018/2/lake-erie-locations-for-romantic-photos Our magnificent great lake, its rocky shoreline and fascinating cliffs create a natural and stunning background for engagement and wedding photos.  The lake and its shore are millions of years old so that in photos the continuity of nature supports the ideal of endless love. Sunset photos are fabulous for the play of color and light. The grand expanse of the water itself is a magnificent background as well.  Photos shot on a rocky shore against cliffs made of layers of different stone add interesting textures to a photo, particularly with the softness of a wedding gown paired with the character of the stone.

Pop the Color! https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2018/1/pop-the-color The color trend of 2018 is black and white with a splash of lavender or other bright color.  On this neutral background of black and white, intense colors used very carefully will make your actual wedding and your photography a feast for the senses.

Many studies have proven that the human eye is drawn to an intense color in a sea of lighter colors. If you want your photos to have a "wow" factor that will never fade, plan to have some items that will provide the color pop!  Don't overdo it though. You don't want color pops clashing with each other in one photo. 

For example, the bridesmaids' dresses and flowers could be in neutral colors while the bride's bouquet is vibrant with color. Centerpieces could also provide the pop.  The key is to think it through carefully and work with your photographer in advance so your photos will be spectacular and uncluttered.

How to Infuse Your Wedding with Creativity https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2018/1/how-to-infuse-your-wedding-with-creativity With more cold months looming ahead, how can you make the most of your wedding planning time? The first rule of a super successful wedding is... drum roll please...don't procrastinate! Take this slower time to meet with your photographer and other key professionals that you're considering. The winter months are typically slow for wedding vendors which makes it the ideal time to sit down with them and collaborate creatively. Photographers, especially Daniel of Daniel Photo Pro, find their greatest joy and passion in the creative aspect of the photography business. When you take the time to explore your wedding ideas and dreams with your photographer and are open to concepts you've never thought of, you'll be amazed at the magic that happens. Authentic creativity cannot be hurried. It's the element that will make your wedding pictures a never ending joy.

Kids Add Spontaneous Joy to Weddings https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2017/10/kids-add-spontaneous-joy-to-weddings  

Kids Add Spontaneous Joy to Weddings

The photography of a happy wedding often reveals that children add a wonderful dimension to the event. Attention can be paid to every detail in planning including what the kids wear, but fortunately, kids are kids, and they bring a spontaneous joy to the occasion which comes through in the photography.  Even very young children sense that weddings are special because they’re a blending of families. To a child, family is everything. If the bride and groom can relax and enjoy the children at the wedding, they’ll have photos they’ll love to share. The more kids, the merrier.

Lighting, Shadow, Mystery – the Secret of Creating Glamour https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2017/9/lighting-shadow-mystery-the-secret-of-creating-glamour Lighting, Shadow, Mystery – the Secret of Creating Glamour

Why do certain pictures appear to have a mysterious timelessness to them while others capture a particular moment in time? One of a creative photographer’s tools is the use of shadows to add depth and the quality of mystery. Having a large space around the subject is another way to add the mystical depth that makes the photo look timeless. Typically, the result of manipulating light, shadow and space well results in a glamorous look that is very appealing and often amazing.

Once again, planning ahead and leaving time for experimenting with light and shadow is so very important in creating photographs that you’ll want to frame because they have an artistic quality.  Brides normally spend the majority of their time planning the details of the wedding but allow little time for creative photography. In the end, however, it’s the photos that last forever. Allow time for the photographer to play with light and shadow!

Get Ready for the Wedding in a Beautiful Venue if You Can https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2017/9/get-ready-for-the-wedding-in-a-beautiful-venue-if-you-can There’s a sweet spot for photographs in the wedding day agenda that most people don’t think about.

It’s the time after the wedding party is dressed, but before they go to the ceremony venue.

If the wedding party or at least the bride and groom get ready in an architecturally beautiful place, it’s possible to get some of the most interesting and unique photos.  Churches and other wedding venues are sometimes not the best for providing visual elements that can enhance the bride or couple, because they’re boxy or angular or the lighting is low.

Of course, the budget sometimes requires that the wedding party dress at home and those photos can be wonderful because they include familiar and treasured backgrounds.  However, if you want photos that have especially pleasing or unusual backgrounds, choose a hotel that has character and charm.

That period of time after everyone is dressed but before the wedding is usually a time when there is laughter and joy but no one is crying yet.  So makeup has not yet smudged!

Take some time and talk to your photographer not only about the people whom you want in photos, but the visual elements – architecture, gardens, water elements etc. – that you want to use.  Don’t worry if you’re not creative, your photographer is!

Manage Guests to Allow Time for Photography of Venues https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2017/9/manage-guests-to-allow-time-for-photography-of-venues Manage Guests to Allow Time for Photography of Venues

You may spend a small fortune, not to mention hours of time thinking about your wedding decorations, so make sure to allow your photographer time to photograph the various spaces before the guests are present.  You’ll want photos to remember your beautifully decorated tables and all the little touches that made your wedding special and unique to your love.

Having a cocktail hour or even a half hour, will give the photographer time to photograph the reception venue before the guests begin putting purses on the table and throwing jackets over chairs.  Even if you only serve punch during the cocktail time, it will buy precious minutes for the photographer to do his magic.

In the end, it’s a simple solution that will result in priceless photos of all the little things that characterize this very special moment in your lives.

Are Reviews Real? https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2017/8/are-reviews-real Are Reviews Real?

We’re proud of our reviews on Wedding Wire, which they verify before posting. The majority are written after our photos have been delivered, however, sometimes we’re fortunate enough to receive a review before delivery.  Since they’re not professional models, most couples come to the photo session with anxiety. As soon as they see that Daniel and his assistant Carmen are relaxed and ready to have some fun, the couple naturally relaxes. Photos are never better when people are stressed! Love comes shining through in laughter.

The following review came to us before the photos were delivered (although during the session, Daniel frequently shows a couple the photos he’s just taken in the camera, so it’s not like they haven’t seen anything). 

 “Did our engagement photos! I have never met a photographer with as much passion and talent! They have wonderful personalities that just make you feel so relaxed. We had an amazing time doing the shoot and LOVE their work! Highly recommend!!!”

Desserts Make Sweet Photos! https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2017/8/pastries-and-desserts-make-sweet-photos Desserts Make Sweet Photos!

Put lots of thought into your cake and dessert foods because they may provide some of your most colorful and fun photos.  A wedding cake or some kind of dessert is one of the primary elements of a wedding. Fortunately, in this area, creativity is more important than expense. Although the professionals can create exquisite confectionery creations, try to come up with ideas that are very personal to you and your fiancé.  Whomever creates your cake, cupcakes, donuts or wedding pastries will enjoy making them more and will put more heart into them if you can tell the baker what’s meaningful and special to you. Also, tell your photographer why they're special so he can choose the right angles to show your intentions.

Revel in Romantic Red https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2017/8/revel-in-romantic-red Revel in Romantic Red

Red is the color of romance, love and passion! Throughout history it has been associated with fire, longing, energy, sexuality and joy - the intense emotions in life. So red on a background of white is an ideal color for a wedding as evidenced by these vibrantly alive pictures at the Italian Cultural Garden in Cleveland.

Red also symbolizes courage and strength, two traits needed for a long and meaningful marriage.

“Even a touch of red in a photograph, pulls the viewer in to look more deeply at the image,” explains photographer Daniel Ivan. 

Color, shape and symmetry are all important in creating images that are unique and compelling. As you create the decorative elements for your wedding, take the time to look with a critical eye at your creations and imagine what they’ll look like in a photo. Do they look eye-catching or overdone and cluttered? Weddings are short, photos are forever!

Spectacular Photography under an Overcast Sky? Yes! https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2017/7/spectacular-photography-under-an-overcast-sky-yes Spectacular Photography under an Overcast Sky? Yes!

Sunsets do indeed make dreamy photography.  A sunny day can result in photos that convey a couple’s happiness. Surprisingly, great photography can happen under overcast, even turbulent skies.  Passion, strength and the power of love to last can be created under a stormy sky. Drama and contrast that show details often appear in photos shot outdoors on an overcast day.  So if your engagement session or wedding day is overcast or even rainy, don’t panic! Daniel excels at seeing a couple’s love deep within their souls regardless of the weather.

A couple’s love is the emotional element of engagement and wedding photography, but sometimes they also love the jewelry, so why not create memorable photos of it too?  Whether heirloom jewelry or a surprise engagement ring, jewels come with radiance that blooms in photography.  Pairing jewelry with other accessories, often results in truly memorable photography.  Daniel will explore creative ways of integrating them for unique photos, so be sure all of your accessories, including shoes, are clean and photo-ready.  And leave enough time in the pre-wedding photos to have fun pairing things!

Why Great Photography Takes Time? https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2017/7/why-great-photography-takes-time Why Great Photography Takes Time?

Although photography is one of the costs of the engagement and wedding experience, there is one aspect of photography that makes a huge difference. It’s not money, it’s TIME. It’s the willingness of the bride and groom to take the time to let the photographer creatively experiment in the present moment with all of the elements around them.  Light, shapes, angles, color, emotion, all of these and many more are part of the creative process in the photographer’s mind. He tries one thing and then sees something else that might add another dimension to the photo. That ability comes from having taken thousands of photos over his lifetime. Patience is rewarded with photos that bring tears to the eyes because they are so uniquely you and express what is so very meaningful to you.  When it’s time for photography, take lots of deep breaths and give yourself the gift of time. This is often why the very best photos are sometimes created during the engagement session and after the wedding.

Cleveland is now a destination city that has become cool in the world of travel. And why not? It’s a great city full of energy. Young lovers find Cleveland’s landmarks to be exceptional places for engagement photography. Our Great Lake, especially at sunset, the amazing architecture of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, boats in the harbor and the huge Cleveland sign shown above are just a few of the location spots that add time and place to the couple’s photos.

Ask your photographer for help! At Daniel Photo Pro, we know the locations where magic can be made. Although photography shot outdoors in winter can often be captivating, the warmth of plants and trees indoors is also a great way to help a couple relax and let their love bloom.  In the years to come, it won't matter that your engagement or wedding photos were shot in locations reflective of the time of year it actually was. It's the love that shines through smiles and embraces that is meaningful when you look at the photos years from now. The following photos were shot on the same day when it was 26 degrees outside!

Grooms and Their Favorite Things https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2017/3/grooms-and-their-favorite-things In most wedding planning, the bride is the driving force making the choices that create the wedding of her dreams.  In weddings though, just like in marriages, both bride and groom will be happier if each gets to include things that are important to them. Most guys love their cars whether the cars are vintage or the latest model. Guys and cars make cool photos and great memories. It can be okay to forget the limo and use your own wheels for great photos.

Use Your Creativity to Create Your Memories https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2016/11/use-your-creativity-to-create-your-memories One of the pleasures of being a wedding photographer is seeing the unique ways in which each couple creates their experience.  Since the basics are often the same - ceremony, reception, family photos etc., it's the little things that can make lasting memories.  Creating decorations, gifts, little flourishes that capture your personalities and the various aspects of your relationship often make some of the best photos.  Creativity doesn't have to be costly.  Simple, natural things put together can give your guests a memory of what you and the day are all about.  Here are some fun photos of personality coming through.

Using Your Home for Your Wedding Venue https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2016/10/using-your-home-for-all-or-part-of-your-wedding-venue http://www.zenfolio.com/danielivan/e/p774937574If you’ve looked into wedding venues and haven’t found one that is satisfying, consider your own home or that of a family member or friend.  Yes, it’s more work to create your own venue, but it can also give your wedding a very unique and special feel and may save you money.  We say “may” because sometimes people who have home weddings end up spending as much on renting items for the wedding as they would using a professional venue. That’s no reason not to do it, but just take the time to think through everything that may need to be rented. From the photographic point of view, consider whether or not there are places within the home or lawn that will make good backgrounds.  Gardens are great if they are weeded or if enough flowers are in bloom. If the wedding or reception is indoors, is there available natural light?  Is there enough space so that the guests are not too close to the wedding couple during the ceremony?  If you’re trying to decide whether or not to have a home wedding, take lots of photos on your phone or any camera of the rooms and lawn or gardens where you think you might hold the activities.   Spaces can look very different in photography than they do in real life. You may also want to consider having one part of the wedding at home and another part at a different venue. We at Daniel Photo Pro will be happy to take a look at your photos to help you decide if you wish.

Lisa and Michael’s wedding was held in a restaurant and the reception was held in her parents’ home. The results were spectacular!

How to Preserve the Best Memories https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2016/9/how-to-preserve-the-best-memories  

We all have tons of photos in our phones and computers, but rarely do they capture moments in time like true photography.  The Kelly family took the time to allow Daniel Photo Pro to capture one particular day in the lives of Kristin and her children, Nicholas and Avery. Long after the photos in phones have been deleted, the Kelly family will have prints from this wonderful day, framed and preserved for generations. Kids grow up fast! Quality photography, especially on location in a beautiful natural setting creates long, long lasting memories. Take the time from your busy schedule to think about how you will feel years from now looking at photography that has preserved not only the great moments, but the great people of your life.

Maternity and its Magic https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2016/9/maternity-and-its-magic Bringing a new life into the world is magical. It's a magic that we "Danielphotopro-Photography"are all trying to capture for eternity.

The magnificent Sunflower field has once again brought magic to the city of Avon, Ohio.  We are greatly blessed to have this glorious field of yellow which provides a spectacular background for pictures, in our community. The most beautiful part is that it was planted in the memory of a young girl who died of brain cancer.  The spirit of Maria lives on in the joy her Sunflower field brings to others. This unusual idea of honoring a child started small but has grown stronger as more people have become aware of the field which is replanted and enlarged each year. Let the beauty and magic of nature transform your body and heart so that you may live the healthiest and best life you can.

Sunflower Joy! https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2016/8/18-sunflower-joy

A flower among the flowers is what I call Andra. Every photography session is new and different. Nature compliments Andra and Andra compliments Nature.  Gardens and beds of flowers are wonderful places for photography because they make humans peaceful and joyful, thus you get better photos!

Leave Time for Serenity https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2015/9/wedding-in-the-nature Eyes are the window of the soul, the poet says.  In our photography we often focus on eyes open and closed, or looking down as this bride is doing.

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

Wedding on Lake Erie https://www.danielphotopro.com/blog/2015/8/wedding-on-lake-erie In northeast Ohio, we are blessed with one of the Great Lakes, our own Lake Erie. Wedding photography is special when taken near any body of water, even a pond, but there is a magnificence about photography on our great lake. Sunset photography is almost always exquisite because you have the backdrop of the huge lake and the huge sky.  The palette of colors that Mother Nature creates on this background makes the most amazing photography especially when you throw people who are deeply in love into the mix!
