I think the photographer – couple relationship is truly key for wedding images to be a success. Aside from all the creativity and technical nitty gritties, the relationship between the person behind the camera and the people in front of it, is important. Many of my couples I know through references, or at least feel […]

These two had the soul to fill a black-and-white photograph. If you don’t know what I mean, don’t worry, I am going to explain. I can’t speak for every photographer, but when I make black and white’s I do it for the purpose of feeling something. Because of this, any image that is a black […]

Lauren & Matt’s special day was one for every single book written about love. EVER. Allll the pieces were such beautiful additions. The location had a little Great Gatsby magic. The bowties added a James Bond feel in the air. THAT Dress! Ahh, that dress. It felt like Marylin Monroe met with the Duchess of […]

This wedding held glamour, magic, a little weather luck, and a whole lot of love! Watching Jessica & Macauley’s special day unfold lightened my entire heart! There was a first “look” hug, a lemon shot, six-tiered wedding cake, cigars, and even childhood-pictures on the bathroom doors :)! The amount of laughter truly magnified as the […]

If I could find an adjective to define these love birds, I’d say they are incredibly warm-hearted. Tim + Maria are two beautiful souls that are a perfect fit for one another!

There is a soft spot in my heart for this wedding. I know I say that about every wedding (and it’s one thousand percent true!!), but from the very first time I met Kelly + Matt, I immediately fell in love. Not sure if it was Kelly’s infectious laugh, or Matthew’s positive, happy attitude, but […]

True Story: my to-do lists are thousands of miles long. When I jumped into this profession I didn’t realize how much commitment was needed, especially for the non-creative aspects of the job. On a typical day, I wear multiple hats.  They range from business manager, to creative director, networker, editor, website designer, social media strategist, […]

I’d just like to preface this post by saying: no this is not your typical bar crawl. Sure, it is safe to assume people had a lot of fun + there was drinking involved + yes you hop from bar to bar. BUT this event is really about the animals. Since its first year, the Cleveland Animals Bar Crawl raised over […]
