Bride and Groom by a pond

The COVID-19 pandemic has made what should be an exciting time very stressful and emotional for those planning a wedding  Many couples have postponed their weddings later in the year or even moved them to 2021.  Mikaela and Jeff decided to keep their original wedding day but turned it into a very small, intimate wedding […]

A beautiful day at Mapleside Farms.  A gorgeous Bride and a handsome Groom.  A sweet first look.  A pre-ceremony prayer.  Two people who have the same hearts and same dream.  A Golden Hour that dreams are made of.  We are so grateful to be invited into the lives of such amazing people and document their […]


When I first met Megan & Nabil last January to photograph their engagement session, I realized they were a dream couple! Snowy and cold, the weather did not scare them away from meeting for outside photos! On the contrary, they were excited to brave the cold for some beautiful photos in the snow. When their […]


I can’t even start to express my happiness at sharing this Engagement Session! The Bride, Talie, is my SISTER who I love with my whole heart along with my sweet niece Tegan.  Scott makes Talie smile in ways I have never seen and is loving and kind to Tegan which means he has my total […]

Ohio Fall Engagement Session   I love a beautiful love story.  I have known Sarah’s family for years and more recently when she rescued me from a terrible hair disaster three years ago.  Ever since that time, Sarah has not only kept my hair on point but we have also developed a great friendship.  Make […]

She loves Theater…so much that she incorporates her Theater degree to work with Autistic children (how awesome is that!).   He’s a chemical engineer.  Neat how opposites tend to attract.  It’s so fun to spend time with Mackenzie and Mitch.  The smiles are non-stop and the laughs are too.  They have a sweet connection between them […]

Photo Session in Little Italy Cleveland

I had the BEST time with this Family in Little Italy last weekend.  One of my favorite things about being a photographer is watching families grow.  I’ve been taking these triplets photos since they were 5 months old!  They are growing up so fast and it’s so fun watching their personalities emerge more and more! […]
