I love when you establish a vendor relationship, that becomes friendships, and later a business relationship. Kimalon years ago attended a past wedding that I shot, and later contacted me when she planned her best friends wedding. After collaborating on that wedding, she then chose to use me as the photographer for her wedding day. This e-session was our first time shooting together ( with her as the client). We had an amazing time taking advantage of the Cleveland Agora, please click through and let me know your thoughts.
If anyone knows anything about me, they know I love my fellow academics, and even more so I love my fellow Caribbean islanders. This couple, in particular, struck two out of two making this event one of my favorite weddings of 2017. Not only did they supply rum cake, plus the type of music I love, but they were a pleasure to work and talk with. For ex. Many of our pre-wedding meetings would go for hours. Our discussion would range from food, culture, life philosophy and even research. I look forward to seeing where our friendship will take us.
I had an amazing opportunity to shoot with BERNARD and AILEEN this past weekend in Columbus, Ohio. They both chose the Columbus Metropolitan Library as the setting for their engagement session, and as their photographer, I couldn't be more, please. The venue was beautiful. Large windows, tons of natural light, in addition to hanging artwork and their courtyard. While we were unable to utilize the full space due to yesterdays 90-degree weather, we made due with what we had available. Please click through and leave your thoughts below.
Julia and I have had the opportunity to develop a solid friendship during my graduate school experience. We've interned in the same office, sat together in similar classes in addition to having awesome discussions about life. During this period I've been able to get a first-hand glimpse of how awesome of a person she is. For this reason, I was super excited to shoot with her and her fiance Keren, who has proven to be equally as amazing. Please check out their gallery and leave your thoughts in the comment section.
I had the awesome opportunity to shoot with these two amazing folks here in downtown Pittsburgh. Steve and I attended college together, and I was honored that he would trust me to capture footage of him and his lovely bride. Click here and leave your thoughts below.

As a Christian, I am always excited to work with fellow believers and comic book fans. So imagine my enthusiasm when I was introduced to this amazing couple who happen to be Marvel fans and who both are on fire for Christ. I have shot with these two for their engagement session, nuptials and now I have the honor of capturing their maternity session Downtown, Columbus. Click through and let me know your thoughts.
Alex and I go way back to our undergrad days at the Cleveland Institute of Art. Much of our undergraduate experience was filled with numerous discussions about life, art and the state of the world. Additionally, we spent several hours crashing events at our neighbor college CASE Western University. Given our history, I was more than enthusiastic when asked if I could shoot her May 2017 wedding. Please check out some of the photos from Meko and Alex's Pittsburgh Wedding.
Check out one our most recent engagement session. This shoot took place downtown Cleveland on a rare 90 degree day. This couple wanted an urban feel for their e-session that felt similar to their NYC root. Please click through and let us know what you think.
Modern fairytale beauty and woodsy Old World charm can spark love and style beyond the storybooks. Just take a stunning modern-day princess and a dashing dark-eyed prince to a castle in the lush hills of a rustic hideaway and watch a new love story unfold. Weaving the tale of Rapunzel into an eclectic design -- where urban flair meets classic details and where clean modern lines meet romantic rustic textures -- was the inspiration for this styled shoot.

Since the wedding season is quickly approaching, what would be a better way to keep my skills sharp than to keep active. My good friend Charon recently reached out and asked if I would be willing to shoot with her, please take a quick peek at some of the results.
Memories, the gift that keeps on giving, will stay with us forever. Triggered by senses relative to the experience, we can often recall special moments so completely it is as if we are navigating them for the first time. A walk down a familiar street, or through the rooms of a previous home and our past can be found in memories left all around us.
Three an a half years after first connecting online, Mario would bring Ryan back to the memory of a first kiss. Standing in the very spot, that memory recalled in full, would now be enhanced with another unforgettable moment as Mario got down on one knee to ask Ryan to spend the rest of his life with him, together as partners in marriage...
I would like to take this time to thank all of my clients, for allowing me to document the special day. This blog post is a highlight of some of my favorite shots from 2016.
