The Cleveland Marriott Bridal Show


Kaufman Photography has gone through many changes in the last year. As we attend expos and meet new clients, we wanted that change to reflect on the way we represented ourselves in our booth.

This past weekend we had the opportunity to do just that, and participate in the Cleveland Marriott Bridal Show.

The idea was to showcase who we are, and what we feel photography is about. Ditching the formal coffee shop high-tops for end pieces and removing benches for vintage coffee tables and classic chairs, we created a space that not only showcased the photography, but also an inviting space that would help visualize those pieces in a home. A bonus was being able to show off some of our awesome vintage cameras.

Of course, being Ohio in January, it did get a bit slippery later on in the day. Overall it was a great show, and we got to talk to some amazing couples.

We're definitely excited for our 2015 clients, and look forward to meeting our 2016!

Audrey + Timothy

I've known Tim for almost 5 years now, and I must say, this is the happiest I've ever seen him. I remember telling Tim that one day, he'll find the perfect person to compliment him, and once he finds that person, everything will fall into place. A few weeks after that conversation... that someone stepped into his life.

It has been so wonderful to see Audrey and Tim grow as a couple. These two are perfect together and it really shows. What I've enjoyed the most is being able to help tell their story and to create some beautiful images for their engagement. I am very much looking forward to their wedding this next coming Fall.

Congratulations to Audrey and Tim, and enjoy the photos!


Sarah and David

Wanted to quickly post some of our favorite photos from Sarah and David's wedding in Marion, Ohio. These two were wonderful to work with, and we definitely need to thank David and his groomsmen for their dedicated service in the armed forces. I don't think I've ever heard so many interesting stories in a 48 hour period.

To think, it all started with a chance encounter on the freeway where Sarah and David just happened to be driving next to each other and decided to take a chance and meet someone new. (You'll have to ask Sarah for all the details... it's a great story!)

We had a blast on your shoot, and we hope you love the photos!

Congratulations to both of you.

The Cleveland Sight Center

Let me start off by saying how thankful I am for being invited to help out Progressive Insurance volunteers with a wonderful community service project. Last weekend, about 70 volunteers from various departments at Progressive Insurance volunteered their time and effort for The Cleveland Sight Center's Highbrook Lodge. This place is awesome. For those of you who don't know what this is:

"Highbrook Lodge, the first camp in the United States built specifically for blind or visually impaired persons, was opened in June 1928, the gift of three pioneering Cleveland Sight Center volunteers and early supporters: Prudence Sherwin, and Ida and Josephine Grasselli.   Five miles south of Chardon, Ohio, it is named for a rippling stream that descends the length of Highbrook’s gently sloping hillside. 

It is a place where independence and self-sufficiency are encouraged, campers can improve orientation and mobility skills, increase their ability to live independently and, most importantly, learn while having fun surrounded by natural beauty."

Bob Kochmit, the camp manager, had an ambitious list of projects that needed to be completed before the camp opened... and we were happy to help.

After a full day of work, Bob sent me the list of what was accomplished:

- 50 tons of stone were used to pave 708ft of walking track…
- 10 yards of mulch were laid on 375ft of sensory trail…
- Over 500 fallen branches were removed…
- 10,000+ beads were sorted…
- 1,000+ crayons were sorted…
- 15 gallons of paint were painted with 19 paint brushes…
- 3,500 lbs of furniture were moved…
- 1 sports and recreation shed was moved…
- 9 Gallons of off-road diesel were burned in the equipment used…
- 8 ropes course elements were cleared of debris…
- 1 mouse had to find a new home…
- 1 Conestoga wagon had it’s top restored…
- 50 plants were placed in the ground…
- 24 gallons of water were drank…
- 100,000+ smiles will happen because of your hard work…

This was such a wonderful experience all around and it felt great to work alongside such motivated, well-organized and caring volunteers.

I wanted to post some photos and a quick video to show all of you just how much we were able to get done. Thanks to Progressive Insurance and The Cleveland Sight Center for letting me come along!
