Well, I can tell you with absolute certainty that the photos from an engagement session are some of the most genuine, fun-loving, and memorable that you'll ever have taken. Why? The wedding jitters! Here's a chance to get in front of the camera, and just enjoy being a couple without having to think about every minute detail of the wedding. It's a break from all the planning, decisions, and stress. Plus, it gives a couple the chance to get used to a camera being pointed at them. (Which ultimately leads to better wedding photography)

Our latest couple, Carla and Eric, are very special to us. Carla is my sister-in-law, and Eric, my soon to be brother-in-law. What I love about these two is just how natural they are with each other. The way they interact, joke, and make each other laugh is fun to watch, and even more fun to photograph. We also got a chance to photograph Carla's daughter Alexandra, who proved to be quite the photographer assistant towards the end of the shoot. Carla and Eric truly embody what it means to be from Cleveland. They're adventurous, energetic, and love to explore all that the city has to offer. What better locations to visit than the Rock Hall docks, East 4th Street, and Playhouse Square?

It has been a pleasure to tell their story, and we can't wait to attend the wedding in October!
