Eastlake North 2018 Senior
Nicole is another on of several Eastlake North 2018 Senior Class members I've been fortunate to work with this year. We met at a quiet little park I'm becoming to really like working at on a late summer evening. After a short hike, and maybe a little trespassing, we ended up down by the river. As always, if there is an option to ge ...
Mentor High School Class of 2018
Tyler is a Mentor High School Class of 2018 Senior. I met him where he spends most of this time. The football field. He's the Center for the Cardinal's offense and having a great time playing the game.
Eastlake North Senior Portraits
I met with Evan a couple weeks back to take his Eastlake North Senior Portraits. Go Rangers!
We met just after lunch on a warm late summer day and walked around the Chagrin River Metropark for a bit. In my typical fashion, it was a meandering walk around several locations stopping here and there for a good photo opportunity. ...
Wedding at Meadow Ridge Farm
Jessica and Kevin were married in a wedding at Meadow Ridge Farm. It was a beautiful outdoor ceremony. Not too hot, not too cold. Just right. Their reception was at the pavilion on the property and it rocked all night long. Even a few sprinkles of rain couldn't keep folks off the outside dance floor!
Class of 2018 Senior Portraits
I met Zach in downtown Cleveland for his Class of 2018 Senior Portraits. We strolled around the Rock Hall and into Voinovich Park on a fantastic late summer evening.
Zach is a Lake Catholic High School Senior. I'm wishing him the best of luck as he wraps of his final year of school and moves onto college! He's going to do grea ...
In the River
I said, "Bailey, our next session should be in the river." She didn't flinch. She just asked what she should wear. So here we are after an hour in the river. Waist deep. Stumbling over rocks. Fading summer light. Wondering if there are leeches in the water.
Nicole and Greg in Ohio City
I met Nicole and Greg in Ohio City for their portrait session. We started off with a beer on the patio at Market Garden Brewery before taking a walk down W. 25th Street and stopping here and there to take some great pictures. It's such a great part of town and one of their favorite places since their first date was at Nano Brew! ...
Wedding at Gervasi Vineyards
Molly and Taylor had a beautiful summer wedding at Gervasi Vineyards near Canton. They spent the morning surrounded by friends and family as they got ready for their big day. A late afternoon ceremony, turned into a evening party that rocked all night long. We were even lucky enough to get a beautiful sunset as their night came ...
Dance Photography in Cleveland
I'm shooting more and more dance photography in Cleveland. Several weeks back when I rented the Fuji GFX50s, I also managed to get some time with Jeff and Chandler. We met in downtown Cleveland because I've been wanting to shoot somebody dancing in the fountain at the new Public Square since it opened last year. They said they ...
Susan for Portraits at Sunset
I met Susan for portraits at sunset in a very secluded field I tend to frequent. She had found my name through a friend and just wanted to try something different. We spent about an hour walking a nearby path and then venturing far off it into the tall grass and wildflowers just as the light got magical.
Dinner in the City
Several weeks ago I had the opportunity to have dinner in the city. Well, just outside the city in one of the largest urban farms in the US. My good friends at Spice of Life Catering were having one of their Plated Landscape dinners there. A wonderfully prepared meal using produce from the gardens in Cleveland's Ohio City and a ...
Wedding in Cleveland’s Little Italy
Calie and Jeff celebrated their wedding in Cleveland's Little Italy several weeks ago. It was a beautiful ceremony and Holy Rosary that was followed by an all out party at the Mayfield Country Club that went all night long and ended with a wonderful display of fireworks. Throughout the day they were surrounded by the love of fami ...
It's fitting that today is Mother's Day since this is Katie's first Mother's Day with little Phil. Of course, he's not so little anymore. He's six months old. It doesn't seem like it's been that long since I met them at their home to take his newborn photos. Can't wait to see them in another six months to take his first birthda ...
Dance Ballet in the City
I had a free morning in Washington, DC about a week ago and put out a blast on social media to see if I could find someone to dance ballet in the city for me. My calls were answered and on a brisk Spring morning I met up with Barri to explore a bit. We started at the City Center shopping area and found this wonderful background o ...
