Clarissa and Rickey’s wedding day was incredibly meaningful. At the age of 18, Rickey was wrongfully accused of a crime and was prisoned for 39 years with a death sentence. A young witness at the time was pressured by the authorities to single Rickey out and young Rickey’s life was taken away from him. A group dedicated to help innocent incarcerated men opened his case back up and Rickey was finally free. Free to a strange world that was much different that he remembered. But he was finally able to start his life, and he found love. I’ve seen many groom’s reactions when witnessing their bride walking down the isle. That look was different for him, you could see the whole story in his eyes, the way he looked at her with tears dropping from his eyes. This was a wonderful new beginning, the beginning of life. The man never lost hope, and was rewarded by freedom and love. This wedding was absolute amazing in every way, I feel incredibly honored to have captured it. You can read his story here.

The eventful day started with getting ready at Metropolitan at the 9, portraits around the area and the Browns Stadium and Ceremony/ Reception at the Great Lakes Science Center.

Victoria and Chris wanted a small, intimate, elegant and relaxed wedding in a beautiful setting. That is exactly what they got when family and friends joined them in their wedding day at Holden Arboretum. Capturing weddings that all events take place in location is one of my favorite things to do. I get sucked in the moments uninterrupted and just focus on the story of the wedding day. Victoria and Chris had one of the sweetest first look moment, tears ran down her cheeks. The ceremony was held right outside the mansion, followed by dinner indoors and dancing outdoors. The night couldn’t be complete without creating a breathtaking end of the night portrait.

Amanda and Don took a wonderful journey starting with the wedding┬áday, and now they eagerly wait to welcome to the world their baby girl. For their session I visited them at home and we had a lifestyle shoot using all natural light but the last shot. I really have to do more in home sessions, it really adds meaning to the storytelling my style of photography brings. During the session we mostly talked, and laughed, it just felt like I was just hanging out and taking photos along the way. The plan is to visit them the day after delivery at the hospital for their first official family photo. Can’t wait!
