Kelli: Styled Bridal Session {Toledo Bridal Portraits}

Kelli: Styled Bridal Session {Toledo Bridal Portraits}

Kelli was the very talented model that worked with our studio for a prom dress shoot earlier this month.  We had a beautiful bridal bouquet designed by In Bloom Flowers and Gifts (Maumee, Ohio), so we wrapped up her portraits with a bridal session.  It was during our most recent spring snow (will winter EVER end?), so we moved the outdoor session into our studio, which is located at 10 S. Holland-Sylvania Ave. in Toledo.  Toledo bridal portraits can be stunning year-round, no matter the weather!  Our studio is located inside a retro 1920s school house, so we used the unique setting to capture some images of Miss Kelli in the hallways and stairs.  Kelli’s makeup was applied by the artistic Amy Lewis of Makeup by Amy Lewis.  Don’t you love the dramatic eye shadow and nude lip color?  The perfect look for Kelli!  We loved working with Kelli and highly recommend her modeling skills!  She can be contacted for future modeling events here.

No bridal portrait is complete without some closeups of the bride and veil!  We used a LOT of veil for this series of shots.

We even took a brief 5 minutes to capture some portraits under the vine archway in our studio garden.  The hint of sunshine backlighting Kelli is deceiving… it was cold!wedding pictures in toledo ohThanks again to the wonderful team of people who helped make this Toledo bridal portrait session a success!

Guess what we were doing last week during the mid-spring snow!  We were working with some amazing talent in the Toledo area during a formal prom dress session!   The beautiful model is none other than the talented Kelli Market, gorgeous Makeup by Amy, and corsages by Maumee’s downtown florist locale: the creative In Bloom Flowers and Gifts.   The perfect combination for any Toledo prom photos!

The shoot was originally planned to be outdoors at Wildwood Metropark, but mother nature had other ideas!  So we moved the session to our studio, which is a part of a 1920s retro school house here in Toledo.  Despite the weather change, the styled prom dress session was a success for this Toledo prom photographer!  Which images are your favorite?  I just love Kelli’s look in the soft pink gown with the balloons!

I just love this dark shade of lipstick!  It goes so perfectly with Kelli’s beautiful complexion and matching red prom dress!Toledo Prom Toledo Prom PhotographerOne of my favorite images from Kelli’s session!  A little help from makeup artist Amy Lewis to capture this foggy mist effect.  It’s amazing how many different looks and styles you can get with studio lighting!  And we bring ours on location wherever we go!

I hope you enjoyed this post!  You can see more of our Toledo high school senior portraits here.

Parris & Tom: Sidecut Park Engagement {Toledo Wedding Photographer}

Parris & Tom: Sidecut Park Engagement {Toledo Wedding Photographer}

Tom and Parris chose the perfect spot for their engagement session!  Sidecut Park in Maumee.  It not only is close to their home, but a stunning location for every season, even with the trees not in bloom, yet!  Maumee’s Sidecut Park was designed around the lock system, which helps control the Maumee River’s water height.  By far one of the best locations in the Toledo area, I’m so glad they chose it!   It was a gorgeous day, too, sunny and warm.  And hard to believe that just a few days after this we had 3-4 inches of snow!

Can’t wait to capture this adorable couple on their wedding day next month!

Amanda: Model Portfolio Session {Toledo Model Photographer}

Can I just start off saying that I have the BEST job in the world!  How fun is it to spend an hour in our studio with a beautiful model and a talented makeup artist?  Makes my job easy and fun!  Professional headshots and portraits are so important for modeling, because it’s the first thing a recruiting agency will ask for.  If you don’t have a good model portfolio, then you should contact a Toledo model photographer for a portrait session!  And since agencies use professional makeup artists, you should also consider having one for your session.  At JH Photography, we work with the amazing makeup diva, Amy Lewis.  Her services are available as an add-on for any of our sessions!  She’ll enhance your beautiful natural features so that they ‘pop’ on camera!  Check out her Facebook page here, and enjoy the posted images below!

Bailey: Class of 2015 {Toledo Senior Portraits}

I met Bailey for the first time for her Toledo senior portrait session, but we were planning for several weeks before!  What a beauty and lovely smile!  I was excited to use some of the new props in our studio.  I seriously have a prop-compulsive-buying disorder!  But, hey, they look great for senior pictures!  These are some images from her indoor studio session (which Bailey rocked!), and we have big plans for her outdoor session planned later in the summer.  I can’t wait!  Thank you Bailey for choosing JH Photography for your fabulous Class of 2015 senior portraits!
