*Engagement*

We are flying back to Ohio in May and need to find a place to take engagement photos. Any suggestions? I'm from the Canton/Akron area and we would like to go somewhere free, but I'm willing to pay a little if we really love the place. We are planning on getting married at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens so any kind of outdoorsy, park, garden, castle, etc. would be great.

    Hi Ashley!! Have you thought about Canal Park or Firestone Metro Park? Those might be able to get you the outside/naturey pics that you're looking for. Or maybe Stan Hywet Gardens, but I think you might have to pay to take pictures there.

    We did our announcement pictures at Brandywine Falls ( I think it's in Peninsula/Boston Heights)

    Did you decide on a place? I am looking for a place in Akron for pictures after the wedding.

    We haven't decided yet but our photographer suggested Quail Hollow State park and Gervasi Vineyards. We we're also thinking about Massillon women's club because we're going for a garden theme. We're leaning towards Quail Hollow because there's no fee. Our photographer has been so great with helping us and giving us suggestions! I would ask your photographer if you have one. We're using Captured by Kelly!

    We have decided to go Lock 4 and use the stairs and water, plus a stop at the fountains of University of Akron.

    If you want to travel up to the Medina area, the historic square is beautiful and Buckeye woods park has beautiful outdoor settings!!!
