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.”

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.

Chris & Jamie. A Tower City Proposal.

There are certain days over the course of our lives that will never leave us. Some good. Some bad. Our wedding day. The day we lost that job. The day we graduated high school. There are also moments. Tiny instances that are unexpected. The kind that turn an ordinary day into one of those “I’ll…
