Maurice and Wendy love nature. So we planned on doing some of their engagement pictures at Seiberling Nature Realm in Akron, Ohio.
We started in their home which is a good way to begin. It’s convenient for my clients and its in their space. They are more comfortable from the beginning and we can get some great “creative candids” as I like to call them. Creative candids are pictures that are set up to look like candids. They aren’t true candids because I am directing my clients. Maurice and Wendy were fantastic from the start. Clearly in love, this is the one tangible element that can’t be forced or controlled. We then headed to the Seiberling Nature Realm.
Seiberling Nature Realm Engagement Pictures
The Sieberling Nature Realm is part of the Summit Metro Parks in Akron, Ohio in Summit County. According to their website, “Many parks exist due to the foresight of a few visionary individuals, including F.A. Seiberling. He donated more than 400 acres to expand Sand Run Metro Park. Land that he owned from 1920 to 1948 was purchased by Summit Metro Parks in 1964 to become the Nature Realm.”
“Seiberling co-founded Goodyear Tire & Rubber in 1898 and played a leading role in developing Akron from a small town into the “rubber capital of the world.” Mr. Seiberling also built and lived in Stan Hywet, which is located near the Nature Realm.
The Nature Realm is truly a gem and a must see for nature lovers in Northeast Ohio.
Here are just a few of my favorites from their session.
