Marissa and Nick's Engagement
Cleve (Land That I Love)

Downtown Cleveland Engagement Photoshoot I absolutely love my job and all my couples. I have so many memories of meeting couples for the first time as strangers, but walking away extremely comfortable, and then becoming friends during the engagement session. Marissa and Nick illustrate this perfectly. In honor of their upcoming wedding, I wanted to post some highlights from their engagement session last August. Nick and Marissa have a real...

Liz and Brian's Maternity Session
Mowgli Becomes a Big Brother

Cleveland and Edgewater Park Maternity Session Simply put, when you are around Liz and Brian, you are in a good mood. They just project love, kindness, laughter and smiles. Their New Year’s Eve wedding was the party of the year to conclude 2016 and ring in 2017 (you can view their wedding blog here). So when they announced they were expecting a baby daughter, and wanted me to capture their maternity session, I was overjoyed. The day started...

Jessica and Scott's Wedding
A Timeline Twist

A Music Box Supper Club Wedding Jessica and Scott are such a cool and alluring couple. When I first met them, I was so impressed how they did not want a typical wedding. After sharing their vows, they desired to spend substantial time with their friends and family right away to commemorate their day, so literally everyone could enjoy every minute. Most of the portraits would then be taken during golden hour lighting, when the sun is lower in the...

Ariana’s High School Senior Portraits
Spring Blossoms and City Skylines

One of the things I love about my job is meeting so many incredible people. I’ve had the honor of photographing the weddings of the nephew and two nieces of Lou and Carol Marich. With each wedding, I got to know Lou and Carol better and better, becoming great friends, along with their three children, Lou Jr., Nina, and Ariana.  To commemorate Ariana’s graduation from Padua High School this past May, we spent a memorable April evening in two...

Emily's High School Senior Portraits
An Edgewater Sunset

I really enjoy photographing high school seniors on location. Studio portraits are classic, but they do not really capture the student’s true personality. I had the pleasure of photographing Emily at some incredible spots in Cleveland for texture, and her favorite location, Edgewater Park. The June sunset just hung there for us to supply compositions that looked as though we were on a destination photoshoot. Emily is such a sweet and spirited...

Sara and Austin's Wedding
Old Cleveland… New Cleveland

This wedding had it all…an enthusiastic bridal party, perfect summer weather, classic locations, and a couple that radiates positive and loving energy. A recent graduate from medical school near Columbus (and where Austin is from), Dr. Sara brought her fiancé back home to say, “I do!” Our day began at the Old Stone Church, one of Cleveland’s oldest buildings. Photographer's are limited to photographing in the back of the church or the...
