Loving every detail from Chris & Robin’s intimate wedding at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens. Ceremony took place at the very beautiful Cathedral of St. John in downtown Cleveland. Always in awe when I get to shoot in historical places. A huge congrats to Robin and Chris, here are a few of my favorites from the wedding day.

Have you been to Stan Hywet? Oh boy, let me tell you, this place is an absolute dream to have your portrait session or wedding at. Surrounding the mansion there is an immense amount of beautiful gardens that you can spend hours with photo ops. It does come with a fee, but it was definitely worth it. To make things even better you meet a couple like Ceara and Arthur and the images pretty much take themselves. It was so awesome spending time with the two of them at the gardens, we covered all grounds and made our way back to where we started our session. I am very pumped to photograph their wedding day, Arthur and I met a few years ago when we worked together a wedding. He was a lively DJ whose charisma made you like him from the moment he says hello. Love walking into a reception and seeing that he’s providing the entertainment, it just makes the day that much easier. Last year he was one of the groomsmen in one of the weddings I shot and soon after he gave me the honor of hiring me to capture his wedding later this year. I cannot wait! Congrats to Ceara and Arthur, it’s hard not to be in a good mood when you two are around.:)

It seems like rainy engagement sessions are my thing this year. Man am I glad for weather sealed cameras! I met Megan and Torrie at Hinckley Reservation for part 1 of our shoot, it was a beautiful location to start our adventure. Big open fields with wild flowers surrounded by trees and nature. Everything was going perfect, then the huge dark cloud rolled in, it worked for some very dramatic images. We ventured into the wood and to the Hinckley ledges, I can’t believe I have never visited the ledges! So awesome! We are deep in the woods, and then the rain just pours, we are soaked from head to toe. We laughed and embraced the moment capturing some very romantic under the rain shots. But had to quickly call it quits, it was very dark and two of my strobes just completely gave out. The rain defeated me. So we arranged for part 2 of our session and met at Whiskey Island, Cleveland to take advantage of the skyline background and the beautiful golden sunrise. Then we went back to Hinckley ledges, there was much for me to still explore and if I didn’t go back I would have spent countless nights tossing and turning. It was too awesome to pass up and I am so glad we went back. Megan and Torrie will tie the knot next weekend and I am stoked to capture their beach ceremony followed by an awesome backyard reception. Congrats Megan and Torrie, see you soon. Lets all cross our fingers for great weather.:)
