Lindsay and Mike

Hey, Chris and I had a great opportunity to shoot with Lindsay and Mike in Medina. It was a little cold at the end of November, but I think we all had a good time.  We were able to produce some unique images, which you will see in their Animoto video as well as on their Pictage account.

Megan and Jeff

by on Nov.14, 2008, under General

Hey everyone! Just wanted to share with all of you our latest engagement session. Chris and I got a chance to hang out with Megan and Jeff at our alma mater, Bowling Green State. We had a blast even though it was a bit cold outside. As a photographer, you may not always have the weather on your side, but it’s your ability to adapt for any situation that forces you to get creative with your lighting, posing, what-have-you.

Megan and Jeff both met each other at Bowling Green, and their wedding is actually taking place in the campus chapel. It’s a very cool location because of the abundance of 100-year old trees located around the chapel. Megan and Jeff also wanted to create some cool “Save-the-Date” invitations for family and friends, so we shot a series of “photobooth” style photography for them to use. They appear at the end of their engagement video.

While I have the opportunity to write, I wanted to tell you about a funny story that happened that day. Chris and I were both shooting with d300′s, and Chris had the 24-70mm lens, and I had the 70-200mm lens. David, one of our up and coming shooters wanted to lend us a hand with the shoot, so as he was assisting, he went to look over my shoulder at what I was shooting. As he bent over, there was a bit of a ripping sound, which I didn’t hear, but he swears to (sorry Dave), followed by a look of surprise and suspense. David then proceeded to wear a jacket around his waist all day. This was all pretty funny throughout the day because the rip in his pants was literally a good 6-8 inches in length. Little did David know that the majority of our shoot would be spent walking from one end of campus to the other, which could total up to almost a mile each way. So, this is my opportunity to embarrass Dave, which I so rarely have the opportunity to do, but a good story nonetheless.

Notice the strategically placed Boda bags and the jacket around his waist. Too funny.

Hope you enjoy the photos!

Trash the Dress (The Long Awaited Video)

by on Nov.02, 2008, under General

Ha. This is a long awaited video! I can honestly say that this particular shoot was probably my favorite for Kaufman Kramer thus far because it was such a departure for us in terms of photography. We got a chance to work with Erica and Danny, (featured in this video) who are absolutely wonderful to work with. They’re daring, and completely open to new ideas and pushing the envelope.

So, a little background history about this session. During the summer, we sponsored a mini-Kaufman Kramer Photography Weekend, and the idea was to work with each other and our friends on different types of lighting. The weekend culminated in a “Trash the Dress” session with Erica and Danny. This session was split into two different areas. First, we wanted to shoot on a beach, and since there are SO many beaches here in Ohio, well… you get the idea. We had to get creative on where to go and how to pull it off. The second part of their session was shot at a park in Mansfield, as well as Mohican State Park. I think that when you check out their photography, you’ll see a great blend between the edgy, high-contrast photography we love, and the dynamic “on-location” lighting we are starting to specialize in.

Erica and Danny, thank you so much for your patience with us as we put together all of your photography! (They’ve been waiting a month for their “Trash the Dress” shots) I just wanted to make sure you got the most mileage out of your online account. :) The two of you were a blast to work with, and we can’t wait to shoot the wedding!

Enjoy!
