Ballroom at Park Lane Wedding | Cleveland, Ohio

Blue skies were in the forecast for Christine and Brad’s spectacular day. I was so excited for the opportunity to photograph their wedding. Christine got ready for her day at the same location as their reception later that evening, The Ballroom at Park Lane. Built in 1923 as a luxury hotel and speakeasy, Park Lane now serves as a unique venue for wedding and events in Cleveland. The venue also has a large bridal suite and a lovely outdoor courtyard for portraits so it was perfect location to start the day.

Brad began his day with going over the vows for the ceremony at  St. Paschal’s Baylon Catholic Church. With a wall of windows, the ceremony had beautiful light!

Christine and Brad love Cleveland. We took the bridal party downtown after the ceremony for some portrait fun at the Rock Hall.

Cleveland Museum of Art lagoon served as a perfect backdrop for some drop-dead gorgeous wedding portraits.

The custom designed wedding cake from A Cookie and A Cupcake was a stunner.

Kelsey + Robert | Farm Wedding Newbury, Ohio

I was very excited when Kelsey and Robert contacted me about their farm wedding. Spending the day documenting their wedding at the family’s horse property was a photographer’s dream.  Grassy fields, split-rail wood fences, a century farm house, golden hour sunlit portraits- what is not to love?

Jordan + Nick’s Blair Center Wedding | Westfield, Ohio

I am not going to lie. It was hot. The heat did not seem matter to any one at  Jordan and Nick’s wedding( me included!) The sky was blue and it was a perfectly sunny day for an outdoor wedding ceremony at the Blair Center in Westfield, Ohio. I loved photographing at the Blair Center with its lush green golf course, stone bridges and a bride and groom with gorgeous smiles.

Gina + Matt | Cleveland Engagement Session

I love family weddings. I am so excited about Gina and Matt’s Cleveland wedding next July(and I am excited to attend as a guest!)  Gina is my lovely niece so I will attend her special day on the other side of the camera. I knew Gina and Matt were moving soon so I wanted  to create engagement photos for them that were ‘very Cleveland’.

Samantha + Scott | Engagement Session |Garrettsville, Ohio

Half the fun of being a wedding photographer is doing the engagement photo session. It is  a good time for me to get to know the couple and and for the couple to get used to being in front of a camera. When Scott and Samantha invited me to come out to Scott’s family property in Garrettsville, I was treated to acres and acres of beautiful land to hike through and to take a few photos where they got engaged. Plus the bonus of meeting Chloe the dog!

Anna and Tim | Cleveland Cultural Garden Engagement Session

I am looking forward to photographing Anna and Tim’s spring wedding in April, but it was also a lot fun to get some early fall photos outside in the Cleveland sunshine. I was excited that they selected the Cleveland Cultural Gardens for their engagement photo session. It is one of Cleveland’s true gems.
