Photography

photographyWhat you can expect from us
Memories Made to Order has over 20 years of photography experience. When you book us for an event or wedding, here’s what you can expect from us:

  • Dependability: We’ll show up on time and leave only after the job is complete. You don’t have to worry about never seeing us again or never seeing your photos.
  • Flexibility: Only need us there for an hour at a 5 hour event? Scheduling an outdoor wedding in the winter? Can’t have a photographer on the ground floor and can only take photos in the balcony? We’ve seen it all and we’ll help you figure it out.
  • Quality: We’ve been doing this a long time. We’re trained and experienced.
  • Budget-friendly: Photography services aren’t cheap, but we do our best to offer affordable packages and à la carte options so you can stay within your budget.

What we specialize in
Since our first wedding in 1985 to today, we love taking photos and creating memories. Our services have expanded over the years with a portable photo studio. This means that you can come to our location or we can come to your home, business, or other venue. Is there someone that is sentimental to you or your family? We can be there. We are happy to accommodate for special requests and locations for a nominal fee.

Our photography services include

  • Event photography: It’s easy to ask a friend or a family member to take pictures at your next event, but hiring a professional ensures that you get the pictures you want, when you want them. We’re happy to help you celebrate birthday parties, birth announcements, gender reveal parties, anniversaries, reunions, Bar Mitzvahs, Bat Mitzvahs, Sweet 16’s, church banquets and more. Avoid stressful situations trying to balance entertaining guests and taking pictures. Let us do the work so you can remember the day for years to come.
  • Wedding photography: It’s your big day and it goes by fast. We offer full service wedding photography, so whether your wedding is an intimate gathering in your backyard or park or a packed cathedral, we’re there to document your special day. Our service includes a pre-event planning session to run through every portrait and pose you’d like to have. Our past experience has helped us build a helpful checklist so you don’t forget to include any family members or friends in your photos.
  • Senior Pictures: Many studios require you to use a fixed number of backdrops and might meet you at a single location for senior portraits, but we’re not them. There are many places in the Cleveland/Akron area that make great backdrops for senior pictures. Make your senior pictures stand out with outdoor photos at your favorite spot in town. We offer indoor, outdoor and studio services for senior pictures.
  • Maternity & Newborn: Celebrate life with maternity and newborn photos. Kids grow up fast so treasure these moments while you can. We can take these photos in the comfort and privacy of your own home or backyard. Studio options are also available.
  • Family Portraits: Get dressed up and stay home — we’ll come to you! We’ve offered family portraits for over 12 years as a fun and easy alternative to visiting a full service studio. Have your family photos taken in your own home, our studio at our location, our studio in your home, or outside at a venue of your choice.
  • Nature/Landscape and Stock Photos: Many of our portraits and landscape photos are available to purchase for doctor’s offices, businesses, restaurants and government buildings. Some of our nature and landscape photos have won contests and have been featured in newspapers and municipality buildings here in northeast Ohio.
