A few years ago I photographed Blake + Irene’s wedding. Now that they’ve got their wedding invitation + greeting card business going strong, I did a shoot for them to use the images for some promotional business. Their work also includes amazing letterpress options and customized stamps. I am a sucker for paper goods, and this stuff is even more incredible because it’s a mix of hand drawn and digital media. PLEASE check out their work, it is stellar!

I photographed Patrick + Nikki’s wedding a few years back and now recently had the pleasure of photographing a maternity session for them. We started the warm evening at their adorable cottage on Catawba Island and spent the rest of the night wandering around exploring some beautiful areas that feel like as though they are far outside of Northern Ohio. I love getting to work with clients over the years and see where their journey is taking them. Congratulations to these two !

TRAVEL // PARIS part II, Palace of Versailles


While in Paris we took a day to visit the Palace of Versailles. Though it was recommended as a must-see by several people, it wasn’t high on my priority list. However, I am so elated we decided to visit. It is magnificent in every way. I was fascinated by the natural light streaming in through the windows of the palace and illuminating it in the most beautiful way. Next time I hope to visit more of the grounds and Marie Antoinette’s estate, as well as perhaps catch an opera at Versailles.

Part I of Paris here. Please do not use or share photos without permission. Thank you!
