Wanna try it on for size?  Let’s see how we capture your love with a classic but modern twist!

Modern Tool Square looks good in any season.   We’ve photographed here in the sun, rain, and snow, and it doesn’t matter the time of year or the weather; Modern Tool Square is a downtown treasure for its ability to wear many hats and still look good.  

We love images that tell a story, and those always take on a deeper meaning with a backdrop with depth and texture. We love the warm, red-brick architecture and brick paths line the plaza. Paired with climbing greenery scaling the brick walls, these artistic elements feel like the marriage of garden space with an urban vibe. Also, the tree-lined brick pathways make this little piece of paradise a perfect spot for one of a kind photo session.  

Modern Tool Square is perfect for couples looking for an outside-the-box photoshoot location. Unique and creative, its' features and ambiance make this plaza a highly desirable space. This venue is both classic and rustic yet still urban. If you are looking for a location that embodies tradition with a modern feel, you may love Modern Tool Square.

One of our favorite engagement and wedding photography venues around Downtown Erie is Modern Tool Square's little-known plaza.  This downtown gem is home to local businesses, apartments, and shopping, featuring a combination of retail, residential, and commercial spaces.  This probably isn’t the first venue that comes to mind as a romantic and intimate setting for engagement photos, but we know otherwise! 

To get a feel for the heartbeat of a city, look no further than their downtown city center. There is a unique energy in a place where buildings and businesses collide.  Plus, there is always incredible architecture that you just can’t find in suburbia.  Modern Tool Square, in the heart of Downtown Erie PA, is one such special place!

How can we book you?

You will get both! I photograph every wedding using two different cameras -- one dedicated to black and white and the other to color. The ratio of black and white to color photos you receive in your gallery may change based on your chosen wedding colors, venue, and/or preference. If you see a black and white image that you want in color, or vice versa, it is very likely that I will have it and can add it to your gallery. 

I see mostly black and white Photos in your portfolio. will we get ANY photos in color?
