Yes this wedding was located in Cleveland, Ohio, but it was still a destination wedding. Lauren and Alex hail from the beautiful state of Seattle, and planned this entire Windows on the River soiree across an entire country! I think they deserve all the cookies for this feat! When I first met them in Seattle, […]

There is something about cuddling with the one you love that makes my heart pang for winter. Ashley + Tyler’s wedding created that same feeling. PLUS they found a venue to encapsulate it all. The Tudor Arms in Cleveland held their entire day from getting ready to bridal portraits to even the reception! Yup, if […]

You get Ellen and Mark and their wedding day. That’s what you get. First things first – I love Cleveland and everything it has to offer […]

Infatuation. Remember when you first learned that word? It was probably in some British or English Lit class in 8th grade or even high school. If not, then let me refresh your memory: Infatuation: an intense passion or admiration for someone or something. Welllp, this word continuously popped into my head while capturing this wedding. […]

Welp, since we already had our first example with Wedding Florists, I figured I may as well share a little of how this day is INCREDIBLY difficult without these beautiful creatives. First and foremost, a florist enhances the beauty that your day will naturally bring. They can transform a barren table scape into a beautiful […]

It took me faaar too long to realize how important it is to work together with other vendors during the wedding process. I used to go into a wedding sticking to my own schedule, with the get in and get what I need mentality. Looking back, I am shocked at how little there was on […]

When I posted the first teaser from this wedding I typed the word Fairy Tale into the caption. There was no question or concern over if that was the correct word because everything associated with fairytale and magic and bliss surrounded this entire wedding. Every wedding I’ve captured holds a little bit of magic but […]

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 […]
