Meet the Schwandt's
Randy and Melissa Schwandt are the owners and photographers of Schwandt Studio. Both graduates from Hilliard, Randy graduated from Hilliard High School in 1995, Melissa from Hilliard Darby High School in 1999. Married in 2002, the Schwandt's have 2 boys, Paxton and Parker who accompany them on shoots from time to time as "lighting directors".
Randy, an IT Storage Engineer at Nationwide Insurance and Head Coach of the 8u Hilliard Colts, also produces some amazing pottery and has pieces of his work for sale, at times. Randy is the technical side of Schwandt Studio and is always on top of the latest equipment and processing techniques.
Melissa, a Real Estate Agent with Columbus Realty Professionals and Head Girls Soccer Coach at The Heritage, took photography classes in High School and loves the relationships they have made through their photography business. Melissa is the business side of Schwandt Studio and the one you will communicate with when setting up your session and helping you through the ordering process.
Paxton, the Schwandt's oldest son, has started to help in the post processing of some photos, which has been awesome for his parents to be able to teach him their trade. He is an active athlete who is apart of the Hilliard Puma's travel basketball team and the Columbus Cobra baseball team.
Parker, the Schwandt's youngest son, is the free entertainment on your shoot. He's fun loving and goofy and is always ready to help make you smile. Parker is also an active little boy who is involved in many sports and is on the Hilliard Colts travel baseball team.
We truly are a family business and we are proud of that!
