I was SUPER excited when Ashley and Michael contacted me about doing their engagement pictures at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse. It was such a unique location and opportunity, I really wanted to be on my A-game for them.
Preparing for Pictures At Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse
After they contacted me, we decided to do a walk-thru to gauge the best locations within Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse to do their engagement photos. It is such a huge space. Overwhelming, really. We could spend an entire day there and still not take advantage of all of the great spots within the space. The walk-thru was helpful in evaluating the area in terms of what would make great pictures and what would reflect Michael and Ashley’s love of the Cavs.
Day of Engagement Session
On the day of the engagement session, as I mentioned, I was very excited. I was also very nervous. I wanted to do a great job and try and get the best pictures that I was able for Michael and Ashley. We started in the Chairman’s Club. This area was our opportunity to get pictures that weren’t necessarily Cavs themed. Based on the aesthetics of the space, we decided that it would a little more formal than the rest of their session. The subtle lighting in the Chairman’s Club in Rocket Mortgage is perfect for my style. The pictures could only be dramatic and Ashley and Michael were perfect.
Pictures Right on the Hardwood
We then moved to the atrium where the 2016 NBA championship trophy is displayed as well as parts of the actual court that the Cavs played on during their championship run. This was so awesome, especially if you live thru the excitement of that year here in Cleveland.
We then moved onto the basketball court itself. This is the area that I was most anxious. There were some specific pictures that we had discussed in advance and I wanted to nail them. Some of my favorites from our engagement session at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse are below.
