23 Toledo Weddings & Counting!

Hello!

So far as of October of 2016, I have shot 23 weddings as a professional photographer.  Take a look at a brief collection of images I captured, mostly in Toledo, Ohio. I love finding new places that I did not know about prior to photographing weddings and engagements! I also have a new appreciation for downtown Toledo, the Toledo Art Museum, and the Toledo Botanical Gardens.  I frequent all of those now!

That is 4 states and counting! Its a small feat for some, but I am proud to take my talents on the road.

I also shoot out of town couples in Toledo! Recently I shot a couple from Atlanta GA, originally from Toledo.  That was an awesome experience witnessing how happy both sides of the family were for the couple.

Wedding Party in Greenbelt, Maryland

Someone asked me where was my favorite wedding so far. I am not sure about the wedding, but the reception list is cool, from the Stranahan, this weekend Im shooting at Maumee Bay State Park, I was a 2nd shooter at a Toledo Club reception  (they used about 10 different rooms in one night), and the Michigan wedding on a farm was pretty neat. We had all 4 seasons in one day in October! I also love the flexibility of Gesu, both inside and outside the venue is beautiful and accomodating.

Family Summer Sessions with A.Byrds.Eye.Photo. A Natural, Memorable Experience

This summer I offered a Wednesday special, to give families a chance to get some portrait sessions in during the week.  I loved the locations we chose, along with shooting at the golden hour, I dont get to do that so much in Ohio.  Native Toledoans that see my work tell me they love seeing the different parts of Toledo , and this session with the Quinn Family reminds me of the hashtags #itmatterswhereyoumakeit and our #youwilldobetterintoledo.

The National Museum of the Great Lakes is one of my favorite hidden gems in our city, and I believe the Quinn Family session captured some of outside of the museums coolest parts. Take a look:

Here is a link to the whole gallery. If you are in need of family portraits, please consider Abyrdseyephoto. Not in Toledo? We travel outside of the city as well, as a part of our full-service photography experience.

Dad&Me Project: #BlackLivesMatter

Here are a few recent photos added to my Dad&Me project.  Its been a year since my first shoot, and I have a collection of great shots of fathers with their children.  The shoots are always fun and different.  I love seeing the interactions between the kids and their dads.  I would like to make a book one day.  Today I will give you a sneak peek of why #blacklivesmatter to AByrdseyephoto Productions.  Leave a comment and tell me why #blackmenmatters to you!DanielsFamilyPics2014-82   HarrisonFamilyPortraits 2014-10-12 167GrableDad&Me
