Steven and Beth’s Engagement Session in Chagrin Falls

by James ~ February 23rd, 2015

Last fall, I got to meet up with Steven and Beth for their engagement session in Chagrin Falls, Ohio.  Beth and Steven are planning a Gatsby-esque” wedding at the Cleveland Museum of Art that we are really looking forward to shooting.  Beth and Steven are both easy going, well educated, friendly people with great tastes for the finer things so we expect this wedding to be pretty spectacular.  Coming this June!

Nicole and TJ’s Wedding at the Cathedral of St. John and the Hyatt Arcade By Heather and Jarred

by Jarred ~ February 11th, 2015

Heather and I have been friends with TJ for years.  We share the same ridiculous sense of humor, and he and Heather have the ginger connection which, if you don’t know, is a fundamental force of nature.

So when we heard he met himself a nice girl that he wanted to settle down with, we couldn’t wait to meet her!  Nicole didn’t disappoint – she’s smart, hard working but laid back, funny - everything we would want for TJ.  They are hilarious together and we knew right away he found the right one.

They planned a really cool downtown wedding – they got ready at the Hyatt, married at St. John’s, then came back to the Arcade for the reception, but not before stopping at the Corner Alley for a drink!  It was a wet early January day, and we made the most of our indoor locations, but luckily we also had a chance to catch the electric blue sky over East 4th just after sunset.

Thanks Nicole and TJ for having us, he had a great time, and we’re looking forward to grabbing that pizza soon =)

Abby and Adam’s Winter Wedding at the Old Courthouse in Downtown Cleveland by Genevieve and James

by James ~ February 4th, 2015

Abby and Adam’s stunningly elegant wedding at the Old Courthouse in Downtown Cleveland seemed to fit the couple’s personalities perfectly.  Fun, spontaneous, and energetic but with an undercurrent of style and sophistication all the way through.  We started the day at Cleveland’s newest hotel, The Metropolitan at the 9,  where Abby, Adam and their bridal party made their preparations for the day.  The Vault, in the basement of the 9, served as a perfect setting for portraits with the bride and groom before heading over to the Courthouse where the ceremony and reception would take place.

We have shot at the Courthouse many, many times in the past but Pieter Bouterse and his event design team transformed the space into something we had never seen there before.  The draping, lighting, and floral arrangements created an intimate and inviting space and when you add some of the best farm to table food in Cleveland From Spice of Life Catering Co. and Tricia Dever of Always Eventful to keep everything headed in the right direction, and you have one incredibly memorable party.

Congratulations, Abby and Adam!  We had a great time with you guys and we can’t wait to show you what we have.  Below you’ll find a sneak peek of the good stuff.

We’ll start of with some of Genevieve’s favorites:

Snowy Family Portraits in Akron Ohio

by Genevieve ~ January 30th, 2015

Surprises can be so fun and this one was no different. As a thank you to family friends, a couple wanted to gift them photos of their children, spouses and grandchildren. This is where we came in. We were hoping and planned for an outdoor snowy session not knowing we would end up with more than we’d bargained for. We took a chance and it payed off with some snow fall portraits and a week later a sunny day, perfect for dogs who love running in the snow.

Jackie and Bryan’s Engagement Session at Huntington Beach in Bay Village

by James ~ January 27th, 2015

I had the pleasure of meeting up with Jackie and Bryan for their engagement session at The Huntington Beach Reservation back in September.  We had a beautiful day to work with so we made the decision to bide our time and see what the sunset does over the lake which ended up working very much to our favor.  Jackie and Bryan have a very important third member of their little family so we started the session off at their favorite dog walking spot with the pup before we dropped him off at the house and headed to the beach. It’s a good thing we did because guess which image ended up hanging on their wall as a canvas print?  Yep, that one!

Keep an eye on the blog for their Cleveland Museum of Art wedding in August!

Hannah and Justin’s Brookside Country Club Wedding by Heather and Jarred

by Jarred ~ January 20th, 2015

When Heather and I first met Hannah and Justin, we had a lot in common.  We both have small dogs – they have Yorkies, we have a Maltese – and we’re all regulars at the Powerhouse Gym in Canton.  Furry faces and making gains are two of our favorite things, so we became fast friends!

Hannah loves the vintage aesthetic, so we started with a Mad Men inspired Save the Date session at Brookside.  It took some doing, but I think we nailed the now classic logo.

We love one location wedding days, and we were excited when they told us the entire event would take place at Brookside Country Club.  The easy going timelines of one location events really help everyone stay comfortable and relaxed, and they would get to enjoy Banquet Manager Troy Grove’s excellent service and Chef Ken’s awesome food all day long!  Plus Brookside has a great outdoor ceremony location and quite a few excellent photo spots, it seems like we find a great new nook every time we work there.

The day went just like we thought it would – totally laid-back and fun.  The outdoor ceremony was beautiful, the light was perfect for photos, and the reception was a hilarious good time.  We ended the evening with a beautiful shot by the fire pit, which has become one of my favorite shots of the year.

We hope you enjoy the photos!
