Ashley Alta and I have attended the same church for some time. She's even modeled for photo sessions I've shot on behalf of our church. So when I found out she was engaged I was super eager to shoot with her as well as her fiance Aaron. Accompanied by my wife Angela, the four of us took a stroll of downtown Cleveland and this was the result. Please leave your thoughts below.
When Brittany and Aaron told me they wanted to shoot at the CLE urban winery, I was extremely excited. I mean who wouldn’t be. The company of an amazing couple, cool new venue in Cleveland Heights, and working around tons and tons of wine. Please click the link and take a peak into our session.

I had the pleasure of shooting with Lilian Pitts, this month. Lilian is a Cleveland based model who will be relocating to Los Angeles by the end of the summer. We chose to shoot something edgy that could be used for her portfolio. In my opinion, very few things are edgier than the bottom level of a parking lot. Check it out and let me know what you think.
I had the pleasure of flying out and teaming up with some amazing vendors for the Munalchi Serenade in Negril,Jamaica. Please click here to check some of the portraits taken.
I can’t describe for you how much fun I had shooting with these two. Their humor alone was worth the trip back to Atlanta. Ernest found out about our services online and contacted me regarding his wedding. Eagerly I agreed to shoot with both he and his fiancé, and we settled on Atlantic Station as the location. I feel that we were able to get some awesome shots, and hope you feel the same when you glance through. Please feel free to leave your thoughts in the comment section.
As our brand continues to grow, we continue to be blessed with amazing clients who finds us in different cities.

As a current student of the University of Pittsburgh Medical School, she expressed an interest at shooting at the Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh,PA. Please click here to view a few shots from our session.
I've long admired Minister Lavender and the Kingdom work he does in Cleveland. As a Christian male, its always amazing to connect with other Christian couples that are focused on having a positive impact. For this reason I was super enthused when Deante voiced interest in shooting with me.
We had a blast discussing everything from Cardi B to male sow in weaves, I look forward to continuing to work with them in the future. Please check out the shoot and let us know your thoughts.

I had an amazing opportunity to work with these three beautiful women last weekend. The weather was cold, and the snowfall was heavy but we were still able to pull off some cool shots. Let us know what you think.
As a midwest vendor, I have long desired an industry conference that would push the professional quality of my market. To my satisfaction, the EmpoWEred Planners Conference 2017 did just that.
Lucretia Williams, a staple of the Columbus wedding industry, was a breath of fresh air. She opened the conference with transparent tellings of her journey to success. Speaker Elana Walker provided much-needed details on how to manage client expectations, while Lakisha Wells provided strategies on how to target and book your dream clients.
Lucretia's discussion was seamlessly complemented by Jessica Rasdall who detailed the importance of perseverance and not allowing your mistakes to define you. And this was all before the After Party and Doughnut bar.
As a vendor, I left feeling fulfilled and supercharged by the knowledge that was shared with me. As a friend, I stood in awe as I was able to witness of the community that Lucretia and her team has now given life to. With that, I give you my top five reasons you should attend in 2018.
Had an amazing time shooting with Bernard Hayman & Aileen B. Ritchie, please check out highlights from their wedding and leave your thoughts below.
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.
