Christine + Zak // Cleveland, OH // Engagement

I'm so excited to share this set with you all! Christine and Zak came to Cleveland from Columbus to hang out with me and have me take their engagement photos. I've known Christine since my freshman year of college and she is one of the most bubbly/friendly human beings I have ever met. Christine and Zak have been dating since high school and their wedding will mark ELEVEN YEARS of being together. Eleven. Every time we were all out together in Bowling Green, everyone could see the genuine enjoyment that these two gain from each other. Photographing them was easy because they're so comfortable to be around; their friendship and love for each other is evident in the way they look at each other and I feel so lucky to have been able to photograph it. 

The day started and with a beer at Platform Brew Co. in Ohio City and ended with screwdrivers at Nano Brew on West 25th. We shared so much laughter in the in-between moments and, as per usual, I felt so thankful for the friendships in my life and the fact that photography lets us all celebrate each other. 

Congrats to Christine and Zak on being the coolest couple ever and on their engagement. I can't wait to shoot their wedding! 


Teresa + Vince // Cleveland, OH // Engagement

Today I ventured over to the Arcade Cleveland to do some engagement photographs with Teresa and Vince! The two really wanted to get some holiday engagement photographs, and while we debated on going to a Christmas Tree farm, we settled on an indoor venue because of the cold and I am so thrilled with the way these photographs turned out. 

Teresa and Vince were so fun to hang out with! Teresa and I went to the same high school but had never formally met, and today was such a great introduction to both her and her future husband. I got to the venue a bit early and took a trip over to Rising Star Coffee to get a little caffeine in my system, and then we began shooting in the Arcade. We decided to move on across the street to East 4th and my heart SANG at how beautiful it was outside - 40º and misting rain, the light was perfect and these two were such naturals in front of the camera.

I can't wait to shoot Teresa and Vince's wedding! Keep a look out for that one in 2018. 

If you're interested in booking a solo, engagement, wedding or lifestyle session with me, write me a lil' letter here and I'll get back in touch with you. I can't wait to hear from you!
