Whoa, a firefighter theme? 

They also wanted some fall-themed photographs created. Fortunately, there was some leftover hay bales left over from a recent Halloween party at the Rocky River. I then took them to a great little park that hardly anyone knows about that featured rustic fences, a wishing well, a multi-level staircase and a cabin!


Well, here's something you don't see every day; a firefighter theme that accents an engagement session.

 When they're not working in their main professions, Kaylea and Nick are part of the Buffalo, New York volunteer firefighting team.

 For the location they chose one of the many covered bridges in Ashtabula, Ohio. I accentuated the period theme by turning some of their favorite poses  into sepia-toned images. I wonder if their grandchildren will see these photographs and wonder if this was a time-warp? When the inspiration hits you, just roll with it!


Thinking outside of the box with your very own theme!

"Bill really captured the spirit of our vintage themed engagement photos. A lot of planning went into it and we were thrilled with how everything came out! We had such a great time with Bill too!" 

Miechelle and Jeff Weber

When I heard about Miechelle and Jeff's vintage theme, I was jazzed, especially since they were planning on bringing a really cool prop: a vintage automobile!

Engagement with family in a park setting

I met with Sara and Cody via Zoom and showed them some samples of my work. After looking over various settings, we all decided on Edgewater Park in Cleveland, Ohio. Here is their album. What do you think? 

Wow, your engagement session at your venue?

This session was photographed at my clients' wedding and reception venue: The Chagrin Valley Hunt Club, where they hang out a lot and haunt the courts. It's one more example of getting the best expressions from people who are at home in their favorite places!

"We love how Bill captured all those little moments throughout our day of us just being ourselves and having such a great time, both on our engagement session and on our wedding day!"
