You would quickly find out that I probably made a Target run at some point during the day. You would know that my day doesn’t really start until I’ve […]

I’ve been to Edgewater park for Cleveland engagement sessions many times before, but never have I ever been there at sunrise. Mostly for two reasons: 1. I have never really photographed in the morning 2. I am not a morning person. But Steven & Teresa’s Cleveland engagement session might have me rethinking both of those […]

That being said, I often contracted other photographers to help me as a second shooter, and that’s when I met Austin’s friend: Mitch.  We photographed a few weddings together, & it was really fun to get to know him. He […]

It was a bitterly cold day for April, however, that couldn’t have stopped such a beautiful wedding full of love.
