Be Captured in the Moment

Real, In-The-Moment Photography

Some photos make you say, “aw,” and then there are photos that catch your breath, bring a smile to your face, and whisk you away to a pivotal moment in your life. These are those photos.

Lifestyle photography isn’t about the perfectly staged, posed smiles (although we get a handful of those in there for good measure.) The photos that pull your heartstrings and decorate your walls are the ones of authentic, real-life moments. Let’s capture the moment together.

Let’s Get Started

Hey There! I’m Anne—

Officially, I'm Anne Spires, but my friends call me Annie. I hope you do, too!

I’m a photographer in Cleveland, OH, Akron and the surrounding area. Since 2006, I’ve specialized in wedding photography, as well as high school senior portraits and family photography.

My photography style is spontaneous, organic and natural. While you may get a few posed portraits, I find inspiration in timeless photography, sparked, in part, by my own wedding photographer's photojournalistic approach. As a lifestyle photographer, I'll gently guide you through the session, encouraging authentic engagement, group hugs and plenty of play.

In addition to photography, I am a devoted wife, mother and alum of Kent State University with a degree in Art History. I can't wait to get to know you!

Timeless Wedding Photography

Relive your wedding day for years to come with lifestyle wedding photography. Remember every special moment through artistic wedding photography, like your mom helping you get into your wedding gown or the expression on your spouse's face when they see you for the first time. Your photos should take you back to your special day no matter how many trips you've taken around the sun together.

For me, wedding photography isn't just about photographing bridal parties and wedding cakes. Instead, I want to capture your wedding day story so you can relive it forever. I'd love to show you more about my Cleveland wedding photography services!

High School Senior Photography

Making it to senior year is an accomplishment worth celebrating! Professional senior portraits are a great way to commemorate a pivotal life milestone while capturing your senior's extraordinary personality and interests. Graduation Day marks the beginning of the rest of their lives—celebrate all they've achieved over the last four years with lifestyle senior portraits while having something to hold onto as they drive away into adulthood.

Most yearbook images are due at the beginning of the senior school year, so the best time to book is the summer before their senior year starts. Say goodbye to stuffy, formal, overposed photos and learn more about lifestyle high school senior photography.

Senior Portraits

Lifestyle Family Photography

The moments you want to last forever are the ones that seem to go by in a blink of an eye. As a wife and a mom, I know first-hand just how fleeting time is. So celebrate your newborn's precious first moments, the priceless toothless grins of your children, and the way your parents still look at each other—even after all these years. Sometimes, the littlest moments make the most significant impact on our hearts. Don't let these moments pass you by.

Photography allows you to freeze a single moment in time and hold onto it for a lifetime. Lifestyle family photography takes it one step further by infusing a layer of emotion. Together, let's celebrate your family's special bond with Cleveland family photography.

She made everyone feel comfortable and has the patience of a saint, when one kid wasn’t having it, she just moved onto her next idea.
