Engagement Photos and Cleveland Museum of Art
I've know Danielle for a long time. She used to help care for my children over the summer and I've asked her to model for me a few times as I tried new things with my portrait work. I was so happy to her she and Nithanial were going to get married! Really looking forward to photographing their wedding in 2020!
Usually when I'm taking photos of Bailey it's for some crazy idea that I have but this time around it was her engagement portraits! I ended up having two session with Bailey and Andrew because it rained the day of the first and that made getting into the river with a waterfall a bit more dangerous and less scenic than we were hopi ...

Engagement Portraits at Squire’s Castle
I met up with Heather and Anthony for their Engagement Portraits and Squire's Castle in Willoughby not too long ago.

The sun was shining, the leaves were just beginning ...

Cleveland Museum of Art Engagement Session – Kristen & Keith
Kristen and Keith could be two of the least stressed people I've ever met before a wedding. When I asked how planning was going the response was "We got a cake. And a dress! People are going to have fun...and dessert."
We got together a couple of weeks ago on a sunny Spring afternoon for their session. Things started out inside ...
Elizabeth & Matt – An Evening Engagement at Holden Arboretum
I first met Elizabeth via a phone call when I was in Nashville, TN earlier this year. As I explained my services to her, I remember the cell service dropping at a moment when it could have just been assumed that I hung up on her. Fortunately, that wasn't the case. We met a few weeks later and talked about their wedding day and w ...

I met Michael and Christopher several months ago on a referral from a regular client of mine (I love referrals!).

1. The Akron Zoo has self serve slushee machines to mix your own flavors. I ...

Melissa & Ryan: Engagement Session in the Flats
I met up with Melissa and Ryan just this past weekend to do their engagement photos. They wanted something industrial for a backdrop and suggested starting off in the Flats.
