Halle and Billy’s – Downtown Cleveland Engagement Session


After many failed attempts due to the horrible spring weather we had, I was finally able to meet up with Halle and Billy to get their engagement shots done and to spend some more time with them . I like doing these shoots for two reasons. first, it gives me and the couple an opportunity to get to know each other a bit more. I feel that it really helps things on the wedding day when we have had a chance beforehand to get to know each other a bit. Secondly, the shoot allows me as the photographer to get a feel for how the couple reacts in front of the camera. This helps set some expectations for all of us as to what it will be like on the wedding day. It’s a great practice run without all the pressure of wedding day nerves.

Patricia and Mike – St. Mary’s in Hudson / Bertram Inn Aurora

Patricia and Mike’s wedding started off one of my first double header wedding weekends of the season. The preparations started out at Patricia’s parents home with all 9 of her siblings there. It was an amazingly calm and organized scene for that many people. After the ceremony the couple and I headed back into town for a quick creative session and then off  we went to the Bertram Inn for a great reception.

Erick and Katie – Chicago Engagement Shoot

Chicago engagement weekend part two:

My second shoot started out in the suburb of Hinsdale, a great little westside suburb of Chicago that reminds me a bit of Hudson or Chagrin Falls. Later we headed into the city. Erick’s job afforded us access to a few high rise buildings in the city. Sadly the overcast sky continued and  did not give us the views we had hoped for. We did however get to go on the architectural boat tour of the city, which was pretty amazing!!  I would highly suggest it next time you get to the city. We finished up the shoot  and had dinner with friends in town. I’m really looking forward to the wedding this September at The Lodge at Genvena.
