mod summer inspired shoot

It was a labor of love for a few months, collaborating on this shoot with Aimee of Modernly Events.  I photographed Aimee & Matthew’s wedding in September of 2012 & we shared a common love of mid century modern design, architecture & furnishings.  I recall leaving their wedding & saying to them: ‘It’s totally normal to want to start doing weddings’ (or something to that affect).  I think in the back of my head, I saw that she excelled at completing a cohesive vision for a large event.  If you peek through their wedding, you’ll see just how true this is.  I was thrilled when I heard of her new venture into event design & furniture rental!  She came up with the initial concept based on artist Alexander Girard’s sun imagery & we went bananas from there bringing that vision to life.  It was a total blast, stressful, but I am so so happy with how everything came together!
Big thanks to all the professionals involved…

faith + jeff in the knot ohio!!

news, Press, wedding

Married on Put in Bay Island, I had a feeling Faith and Jeff’s modern nautical wedding would get some attention in the area.  Elite Events executed the preppy theme perfectly!  I was blown away with their reception decor at Put in Bay Yacht Club!

favourites of 2013!

engaged, lifestyle, portraits, wedding

Hard to believe another year has flown by & I’m pulling my favourite images from the year!  2013 was a year full of growth… photographing births, small businesses, commercial campaigns & of course weddings.  Each of those so different from one another on the surface, but really when looking through the photos as a whole, they all feel so similar.  People having fun, great energy!   We have a ton of fun while on shoots, connecting with the people who photograph, no matter what the subject matter.  Always humbling to look back & see the moments we were able to capture for the people who trusted us to be there for the biggest moments in their lives.  THANK YOU!

Cheers to 2013!

megan + stu | cleveland wedding photos


Megan and Stu’s wedding was one I had been looking forward to since their engagement session.  They are such a warm, lovely couple, inside and out, their friends and family were much the same.  Their wedding in Cuyahoga Falls has a serene feel… Megan dressed with the sound of the falls in the background.  Their first look was lovely, as usual.  Megan & Stu beamed as we did portraits through the Cuyahoga Falls area which we thought had such amazing potential to be a buzzing part of the city.  Dance floor at their reception was energetic & such a blast to shoot.  Adore this couple!!  Enjoy their photos!

jaclynn + justin | maumee bay resort wedding


Jaclynn + Justin embraced Maumee Bay’s beachy vibe opting for a laid back, relaxed wedding on he Lake Erie coastline.  Their First Look was one of the most touching experiences to photograph.  They were both overwhelmed with the joy of the day.  Jaclynn could not have looked lovelier.  The skies were blue and the lake certainly gave us her best that day… could have fooled us that it wasn’t a Caribbean destination.  Such a delightful day.  Enjoy their photos!
