MEET The Cannons

Gervasi Wedding and Engagement Photographer

Melissa and Ryan are Getting Married | Ohio Wedding Photographer


Melissa and Ryan’s Gervasi Vineyard engagement session in Canton Ohio was a highlight of 2020 without a doubt. We had so much fun helping these two plan their session. Melissa had at least 5 gorgeous dresses to chose from and we loved her final choices! She had her makeup done by one of our favorite makeup artists, Taran of American Beauty Artistry to feel like a million bucks! Then, despite all of our worrying, the weather was PERFECT. It tried to sprinkle for a short second but then didn’t and we were so glad that it was a beautiful night for an Ohio engagement session.

Engagement Session Prep

Here are a few details that you can expect for a classic engagement session with us!

1st We will send over a questionnaire to find out what time of year and types of locations that you’re hoping for for your session.

2nd We will find the perfect date for your session and begin all of the planning!

3rd We will help you select the perfect location for you based on the vision that you have in mind for your session! We love places like Gervasi Vineyard, Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens, The Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Cleveland Cultural Gardens but we are always more than happy to travel for engagement sessions too!

4th We will send over our engagement session guide to help guide you through outfits! We suggest one dressier and one more casual.

5th As we get closer we will check in to brainstorm and see if there is anything else we can do for you!

Your Engagement Session Day is HERE

6th Once the day is here you can expect to chat for a few before we dive right into photos. We love to get to know you! We assure you that feeling a little weird at first is 100% normal, and guide you through the whole process.

7th Within the first 10-15 minutes you can expect to start feeling like a pro. No really, we hear this all the time! No worries at all, you are in good hands.

8th Following your Ohio engagement session you’ll get a fast sneak peek and then a blog post like this one to view a larger sneak peak of your images before we send over the full gallery!

9th Our full galleries are guaranteed to have at least 60 images but I’m terrible at keeping it anywhere near that number so don’t be surprised if you see a few more than that!
