Molly + Ryan | Woodland + Theater Wedding

Working with Molly + Ryan was a dream. Molly is an insanely talented graphic designer/artist and Ryan works in the film industry. They definitely got what we were about. Their engagement session was killer but man, this wedding was a knockout. Together they planned a perfect blend of their personalities. They share a reverence for nature which led to a private vow reading along Rocky River and John Muir readings during the ceremony.  The setting for the ceremony and reception was a beautiful, full-of-character old theater in the heart of Cleveland complete with the most whimsical, free-spirited details to match Molly's taste. She designed their stationery suite and featured her uncle's band! We couldn't have had a better time documenting this lovely story for these two!

Rachel + Brian | Date Night Couple Session

We decided to call this a 'Date Night Couple Session' because Rachel & Brian drove all the way from Charlotte, NC to New Castle, PA and then onto Cleveland, OH to meet us for drinks at Plum in Ohio City. After some delicious whiskey beverages and taste-y sharables we headed out to make some portraits without a destination or goal in mind. 
As you'll see these two turned a half hour of wandering around the alleys of Ohio City into the most playful, romantic date night ever! We had nothing to do with all those smiles and laughs...these two didn't need any input from us to be this awesome together! After Ohio City we headed towards the lakeshore and ended the evening the same way they spent their first date, sitting lakeside as the sun fell behind the horizon. We cannot wait for their backyard wedding next month!
 

Brand Shoot | Little Birdie Design Studio

Recently our team got together in a green house with three beautiful models and Little Birdie Design Studio's owner, Tori with a bunch of her knit scarves and hats! We are so inspired by the opportunity to work with local, small brands like Little Birdie. The collaborative spirit of the whole process is so refreshing! We're really proud of the images we made for her fall line... but it really wasn't hard because these goods are incredibly fine in person and on camera!
