Lori Hanson -Owner/Photographer Hansons Enhancements Photography
Coordinator of Marietta Bridal Show
Lori is an Ohio based photographer that shoots predominately Weddings and Stylized Sessions. She has always believed in capturing a true smile, a natural look, a genuine emotion. With over 20 years of wedding photography experience she knows what does and does not work and loves to share her knowledge to ensure a beautiful and stress-free wedding, because when you have a beautiful wedding you will get beautiful wedding photos!
She has taught many photography workshops and hundreds of students but still loves to learn new techniques. Knowing how to shoot confidently indoor and out and how to make the best use of any location are just a couple of things that she does best. She also likes to combine her background of drawing, painting, and design into her photography to create something that is truly creative and unique.
She brings encouragement and positivity that help settle the butterflies, gives direction when needed, and is patient and understands that people should not have to preform in front of the camera but should have fun to capture a genuine smile. She cares most about connecting with the person on the other side of the lens to bring out a genuine warm emotion. “I love it when my clients can relax and trust me to do what I do best.”
She believes that planning is an essential key to a successful session. “I want to get to know you, so we can make your photo session something that truly has meaning. I want to emphasize what is important to you and your personality” She also take pride in sticking to deadlines, paying attention to detail, being organized and delivering a high-end portrait.
“If you want creative, something that stands out from the rest but has a simple and elegant look I would love to help you capture just that!”
Melissa McConnell - Photographer
From the second she picks up her camera Melissa’s goal is to make the people in front of it feel beautiful and comfortable, and she does this with ease! She specializes in Senior Photography but is not limited.
She is a strong part of the Hanson Photography Team and shoots weddings, maternity, family, and newborn photography as well. Her background in Information Technology helps her with organizing and paying close attention to every detail. Melissa is fantastic with creating an experience and not just a photo session.
One of the biggest compliments she receives is that she makes people very comfortable in front of the camera and portrays their personalities.
You deserve to have photographs of your dreams and that you love showing to family and friends. Whether it is a senior session, family session or any other session she will make it a one of a kind experience that is uniquely yours and one that you will always remember!
