At last month’s Canton Woman’s Club dinner, I was sharing our Wedding March series with a group of local bloggers and Allie from Couponing in Birdland mentioned her family has a photography studio. Thanks for the recommendation! (And if you are a Giant Eagle shopper her site is a must visit!)

We love shopping local and a wedding is a great opportunity to support small businesses. Today’s Local Business Spotlight is on Drobny Studio, located in Akron, Ohio.

BBT Tips Wedding March Local Business Spotlight on Drobny Studio

John and Nancy offer all of our brides-to-be some great advice on how to select a wedding photographer

  • Search for someone you are comfortable with. You will spend a whole day with them.
  • Be sure they have several samples to look at. That means they didn’t start yesterday.
  • Look for a style that you are attracted to. Too much journalism means less posed photos. Time and again the posed photos on the altar are what people want. It should be a blend of posed and journalistic photos.
  • Quality albums are a priority. Don’t settle for less!
  • Finally the last consideration should be budget. I realize sometimes you can’t spend thousands and thousands on photography. When your big day is over, what do you have left? I know this is an old cliche’, but it’s true.

Here’s a peek at some of their work:
