When I first met up with Michel and Aaron, they told me that they wanted to switch it up a bit for locations. In Mansfield Ohio, that can be a bit tricky since they aren't as many locations available as you would find in a big city. Aaron suggested the Mansfield Reformatory. I thought, oh... this is going to be one to remember!
For those of you that have never been to the Mansfield Reformatory, it's basically the old prison that they left standing after it closed in 1990. There have been many famous films shot there, most notably, The Shawshank Redemption. Scenes from Air Force One and Tango and Cash have also been shot there. So, if you're a geek like me, the idea of shooting an engagement session in a place like this is AWESOME.
We had 1 hour to go through almost the entire prison (before they closed for the night) so it was definitely a shoot and go type of day. Despite the time contraint, I think the results turned out great! Enjoy!
P.S. Special thanks to Jeremy Kester from Kester Imagery for helping out on the shoot!
