There are so many trails and you’ll see your fair share of deer while hiking around. But what makes it such a great place to photograph […]

There is so much good inspiration available, but sometimes it seems like we either hope  we’ll get those soft and romantic images or believe we couldn’t ever have those types of images.

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 […]

He […]

When I arrived at Brandywine Falls for Nick & Danielle’s Cleveland Engagement session, we were in for a fun evening! It was fall, and it was a little wet. We walked down to the falls, and climbed on down to the water. Honestly, it’s a miracle we all made it out of the rocks without […]
