Brittney and David's Engagement
Family Night Out

Engagement Pictures in Berea, Ohio Over a period of three years, we grew close with Brittney and her family between two weddings and her grandparents 50th anniversary party, where Erin and I felt like-family at the party.

Their engagement session became a family outing as well, with their adorable 5-month old son, Luca. May 24,...

Ashlyn's High School Senior Portraits
Ladies and Gentlemen…Judelyn.

Berea-Midpark High School Senior Portraits I met Ashlyn, also known for her stage name Judelyn, at the start of her senior year in the fall of 2022, and learned she was a gifted singer, guitarist and songwriter, who had released two singles.

Categories Engagements

Berea, Ohio Engagement Pictures I was telling someone the other day how the weather has shifted over the years. As a child, I remember vibrant autumn colors by the second week of October, and often a light snowfall before Halloween. Fast forward, Octobers are getting warmer, and autumn waits until late October, and even early November to be on full display. Such was the case with Chakira and Joshea’s engagement session, on a crisp, but colorful,...
