Hannah & Irwin – A Mapleside Farms Solidarity Session

Photography has given me the chance to cross paths with so many wonderful people who I otherwise never would have met. I value that so very much. But there’s something extra special about being able to photograph old friends. I’ve known Irwin since we were 13 years old, and Hannah just a few years shy…

TERRA Ohio City

I believe in strong marriages over beautiful weddings. I hope and pray that all my couples spend the months and years after their wedding day growing closer together. I want for them to be able to celebrate being with each other in the good times, and the times when it feels like it’s all falling…

Lauren & Corey – A Lakewood Engagement Session

If I had to choose my favorite part about living in Cleveland, it would hands down be Lake Erie. There’s something so calming about the water, even on 30 degree mornings like this one. Lauren & Corey braved the cold cold wind, and woke up early with me to watch the sun rise behind the…

Zach & Kayla’s Hinckley Reservation Engagement Session

I met Kayla for Coffee a few months ago. When we sat down, I didn’t know anything about her, but by the time we were finished, she felt like a friend. She began explaining why she liked my work so much, and as she was talking, I realized she understood my vision & style better…

The Solidarity Sessions: Elizabeth & Dillon

Let’s talk about marriage. I spend quite a bit of time with engaged couples. They’re right in the middle of “Are the tablecloths the same white as the napkins?” and “ Should we rent the limo for 3 hours, or will 2 be enough?”. From the moment the engagement is “Facebook Official” until the last…

Marlee & Grant – A Huntington Beach Engagement Session

“Oh come my love and swim with me, out in this vast Binary Sea. Zeros and ones, patterns appear. They’ll prove to all that we were here. For if there is no document, we cannot build our monument. So look into the lens and I’ll make sure this moment never dies.”

Jasmine & Ryan’s Downtown Cleveland Engagement

They met at work. Ryan lived downtown and they spent the early days of their relationship getting to know each other in crowded restaurants on busy streets. Through job changes & moves, they only grew closer. In the springtime, Ryan asked Jasmine if she’d like to spend the rest of her life with him, and…

Zach & Sarah’s Cuyahoga Valley Engagement

I’ve started this blog post about four times now, trying to convey how much I loved this session at Cuyahoga Valley National Park. And each of those times, I’ve fallen short. The morning I spent with Zach and Sarah was filled with everything I could ask for in a session. These two were such troopers. They…

They asked me to take some photographs around their beautiful home for an upcoming feature in a publication. “Son, hear My words of wisdom Daughter, feel My arms around you Let peace like a river…
