We would like to congratulate you on your recent engagement. Over the next several months, you will have many decisions to make. One of which, will be a professional wedding photographer.
Dan and Connie Swain are a husband and wife team, who have been photographing weddings together since 1995.
Dan first became interested in photography at the age of 10, when his great uncle gave him his first camera; a twin lens Kodak Duaflex II. This is a medium format camera which he still has to this day. In high school, his father taught him to develop and print black and white film. He graduated from the Ohio Institute of Photography in Dayton, Ohio, in 1986 and began working for several studios in Pittsbuburgh, Pennsylvania. He went in business for himself in 1989. During this time, Dan became involved with the Triangle Photographers Assoc. and Professional Photographers of Ohio, where he received several awards for his work. Dan received his highest honor in 1987 from the Burell Color print competition in Crown Point, IN, scoring in the top 20 amongst photographers throughout the world. In 1995, Dan and Connie opened a studio together in the Akron, Ohio.
After attending a few weddings with Dan, Connie became interested in wedding photography. Connie grasped the concept quickly and has evolved their philosophy of wedding photography. She became his assistant, helping with posing, keeping the schedule and attending to the bride's needs. Today her position is client relations manager, where she discusses and defines the couples needs, along with post wedding photography including families and infant photography. Connie's ideas are seen in the detail of the finished prints. We have recently taken on a new assistant and bridal couples will see Connie working with him. Eventually he will be attending the weddings with Dan, but not until he is comfortable seeing to all the details that Connie usually does!
Today, they photograph approximately 30 weddings a year. Although wedding photography accounts for about 90% of their business, they also photograph engagement sessions, infants, children, high school seniors and families. Our clients are scattered across the country, including Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Pennsylvaina, Tennessee, Virginia, Canada and ofcourse here in Ohio.
