Being a photographer in Ohio’s capital city Mak Rabbitt Photography has had their fair share of requests for sessions on the campus of The Ohio State University but our last one was a little special. Allison and Blake are both Ohio State Alumni and Blake never left campus, and still remains employed by the university….smart move, time to get his money back! This made our session extremely special on our fall October afternoon, because not only did I get an extensive tour of the campus, I also received a good understanding of where Allison and Blake met and some of the history of the buildings we photographed. The campus was relatively uncrowded allowing us many unobstructed backdrops to portraits we were creating.
Our afternoon started with us meeting in front of Mirror Lake and proceeding to walk around campus to the various buildings that had special meaning to Allison and Blake. One special stop was a third floor gymnasium in Pomerene Hall where we captured a few great shots! We then headed back outside and found one of the only trees blasting bright orange colors on the OSU campus to fill our frames for a few images before moving on to the front door of the faculty club, then Orton Hall. While at Orton Hall I nearly rolled down the steps, however my cat-like reflexes kicked in and I saved myself while getting a great shot in the process!
We then proceeded across the Oval to the inside of the new chemistry building where we created an awesome image in front of the lighted display in the building. With lots of people looking on, we fired away creating some digital chemistry with this super photogenic couple! Moving on to the dorms where Allison lived when she attended then outside Knowlton Hall.
We concluded our session with photos that any true Buckeye could not live without and those were in front of the shoe!
Allison and Blake not only provided me with beautiful images that afternoon, they gave me a great tour of the campus, some inside into their relationship and a little history about Ohio State! I Look forward to photographing Allison and Blake’s wedding in June 2016 to create more stunning images for their summer winery wedding!
