Nature1 - Edina Merkel Photography

About me

Hi there! I'm Edina, an on-location photographer living in Tallmadge, Ohio. I specialize in Portrait, High School Senior,  Family and Nature Photography. I serve the Tallmadge, Akron/Canton areas and surrounding cities.

I am originally from Brazil but Ohio has been my home for the last 26 years. I am the proud wife of Tim, who  I met in Brazil years ago and the mom of two wonderful children, Silas (20) and Jillian (16).

I am passionate about what I do and have been since I held my first camera, about 40 years ago,  long  before the digital era. Yes, I am that old!!!

Holding on to memories and moments through pictures goes way back for me. I should confess that I am a "photo album" junkie - I own dozens of picture albums! Keeping my images on a disk/computer is not enough, I need to have them on prints. I encourage you to do the same!

I take pride in connecting with people in a genuine, caring way, allowing them to feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera. My style of photography is relaxed and natural. I love to play with natural light and most of my sessions are held a couple of hours before sunset,  when the light is the most beautiful  and flattering. It's my goal and my joy to capture your most priceless moments and to make sure your session is unique. I want you to be happy,  excited and above all love your final images.

I'd love the opportunity to meet and work with you!

Thanks for stopping by !
