Wedding Photographers in Cleveland

Effortlessly Beautiful Photography Genuine & Authentic

It's all about love and adventure....

A good photograph is well composed. A great photograph tells a story while offering compelling composition. What separates the two is the ability of the photographer to not only take a shot, but also to make clients feel at ease in front of the camera, allowing pretense to fade and inner beauty to shine. Anyone can take a picture, but a true photographer captures the spirit.

As a photojournalist, from back in the day, I pride myself on telling stories with my camera, making my clients comfortable before the shutter ever goes off. My mission is be an attentive observer, recording events as they unfold from unique perspectives. Simply taking a snapshot requires little time, but to capture the essence of a moment demands patience, skills, experience and the willingness to think outside the box so each client’s pictures are truly unique works of art.

Whether you are planning a small, intimate affair or the event of the decade, we will use our years of experience and creative energy to create natural, authentic and beautiful images and albums that will resonate for generations.

I specialize in weddings but photograph so much more.  I have a studio and photograph seniors, families, babies, children, product and headshots. I also own the Mirror Me Photo Booth for weddings and events. 

My studio is based in Ashtabula, Ohio located at the beautiful Historic Bridge Street , but photograph weddings all over Cleveland and it's surrounding areas and beyond. Ashtabula's choice all the way to Cleveland. When experience matters!

Our goal is to create beautiful and timeless images that you and your family can treasure. While we take a photojournalistic approach to capturing wedding days, we absolutely believe there are moments when guided posing and direction will lead to artwork that you’ll want to look at over and over again.

This venue has a breathtaking view of Lake Erie! The food is delicious and the staff is so organized and friendly.


As I photograph, I always envision the final product—the photo transformed into a piece of art, either in the form of a hand-crafted wedding book, giclée canvas or a beautiful framed custom wall piece.

When you take the time to create an album, this is choosing to invest in a beautiful way to cherish your memories. I also offer printed products that is built to last for generations. Digital and Print Collections are available as well.

The Beauty of Engagement Portraits

Engagement session are shot at places like my studio in Historic Bridge Street, or places like Squires Castle, the wine county in Ashtabula County, our local beaches, the metro parks to the Cleveland's city landscape. These sessions are a fun way for couples to spend time together while getting to know your photographer and creating beautiful imagery.
