Happy Week-Aversary Kelly and Brett

There are some days where everything goes just right… That pretty much sums up Kelly and Brett’s wedding last week.

The destination:  This was my first time shooting at the new and fabulous Hilton in Downtown Cleveland.  Wow!  What a stunning place, full of picturesque spaces… I only wish we had more time to play around and photograph them!

The weather:  Seriously?  It had rained a lot that week… but not on that day!  Not a cloud in the sky, warm breezes… I mean, who did they bribe to get this weather?!?

The dress:  Just look at it… I don’t need to say anything else.  Ridiculous.

The day:  Calm, laid back, quiet, and just happy.  That’s how it should be!  Forget the stress and the frantic nature of so many wedding days… This family did it right!

The couple:  Kelly and Brett are in love with each other.  That is how I can best sum it up.  It was most visible in how at ease they were with each other… the lack of formality between them… the fact that for them, it seemed like just another day.

The photos:  Photographing Kelly and Brett was so much fun.  All of the factors above contributed to stunning wedding photos, but it was the entirety of the day and the details that made this such a spectacular wedding to photograph.  Here are some more of my favorite photos from their wedding… There are just soooo many more for them to go through!!

Mazel tov, guys… thanks for letting me be a part of your day!

Kelly & Brett’s Cleveland Wedding Preview

Well… I typically like to show a couple a few favorites from their wedding day as quickly as possible… But when you have a couple like Kelly and Brett, a day like last Saturday, and start off with images like this… it’s gonna take a little longer!

I’ve got loads of pics that will be coming very soon to this blog, but for now, here’s a few of my absolute favs to hold you over… more tomorrow :)

Adam and Hannah Say “I Do.”

This past weekend Kim, Edric, and I had the pleasure of photographing Adam and Hannah’s wedding at the Renaissance in downtown Cleveland. The couple from Michigan and their huge bridal party (dog included) were so easy to work with and I was thrilled to spend the day with them! Not only did the crazy April snowstorm fail to keep this beautiful bride from glowing on her big day, but it also didn’t stop us from capturing the undeniable love between the couple. The admiration that these two have for one another is evident, and I have the pictures to prove it! Enjoy a preview from Adam and Hannah’s downtown Cleveland wedding.D42_3138

Bramber’s Aspen Wedding

Amber and Brandon’s wedding has been 10 years in the making, whether they realized it, admitted it, or not… But the culmination of their friendship and love story produced one of the most emotional, fun, and picturesque weddings imaginable.  It seemed to be the perfect trifecta… stunning couple, perfect weather, and… Aspen in October.  Needless to say, Gabriella and I took a lot (a LOT) of photos over this past weekend!  It will take some time to go through them all, but I couldn’t wait to share a few of our favorite shots… So here is a taste of the amazing images we had the privilege to capture for Brandon and Amber at their fabulous Aspen Wedding.D41_7170D41_7640D41_8884D42_0491D42_0720D42_0930D41_8999D41_9183

Dustin & Noelle’s Michigan Camp Wedding Weekend

Photographing weddings in Cleveland, we have gotten familiar with the venues, venders and location options available to us… But for this couple’s wedding, we literally were shipped off to the middle of nowhere (a.k.a. Camp Pinewood in Muskegon, Michigan).  But with the uncertainty surrounding the weather, the cell-reception, and quantity of mosquito bites came the fun, adventure, and absolute unparalleled certainty of the love between this couple.  The rain may dampen (like that one?) the spirits of some brides, but not only did Noelle smile brightly through the touch-and-go weather patterns; but the rain provided us with some of the most incredible light a photographer could ask for!  It’s not every wedding where we get to zip-line, shoot arrows at targets (yes, I got a bullseye!), but the thing that was the most memorable take-away for us after spending the weekend watching Dustin and Noelle through our lenses was the rare and magnificent way that this pair looks at each other, interacts, cares, laughs & of course… dances.  Here are some of my favorites from this fabulous camp wedding!
