BREE LEA PHOTOGRAPY, OHIO FALL  My years in the photojournalism field combined with my Art and Visual Communication Degrees gives my photography a styled look while still keeping the integrity of the moments at hand.

The photos throughout this blog are from two of my shoots that I took in late Fall in Ohio, the week where the colors of the leaves were at peak colors.

THE FEELS

When I approach a shoot, there's a lot going on for me. It's not about just creating photos, it's about creating an image where you can feel something, the feelings of my models, or couples or perhaps even my own feelings. To me photography is the way I express myself and when I partner with a client I'm making art for them.

PHOTOGRAPHY GOES TO THE FAIR

My journey with photography has been an interesting one. I started as a little girl taking my camera to 4H instead of an animal in a town of nothing but farm kids. I was the odd one out and at a early age I discovered the art of making photos.

OFF TO STUDY 

I then decided to go into higher education where I studied all forms of photography, commercial, digital, darkroom. There's nothing like the experience of working in the darkroom. Society has gotten so used the ease of photography where you point, you press and boom there it is, delete, try again.. But when you work with film you have no idea what you have until you process it. You learn to trust your gut and really know a situation and your camera. You learn patience.

LOVE

Fast forward to now and I have my own Wedding business. I love seeing people in love and photographing those feelings. It's beautiful to meet someone for the first time for their engagement session and to be invited in documenting their journey, and most times it's the first time that the couple has been photographed.

BRIDAL BUDDIES 

When I book a wedding, I'm not just booking a wedding, I'm making a year long commitment to a bride. We get to know each other by emailing back and forth throughout the year before the wedding. Sometimes I work very closely with her to design her engagement session all the way down to the schedule of her wedding day so by the time the wedding rolls around I'm not a stranger, i'm somewhat of a friend and your wedding backup for the day.

CURRENT OBSESSION IN PHOTOS 

Currently I'm obsessed with incorporating nature heavily into my shoots. I'm very into discovering the earthy tones and working them into the pieces. I don't use non natural lights either so i'm always playing off the natural shadows and sunlight; keeping the moments real and natural.
