Dear Ohio Weddings,

I want to be your photographer. I want to capture your love stories and your laughter and all the little details that make your wedding day unique. I want to be there for you, from the first time you say “Yes!” to the moment you walk down the aisle as married couple.

Why Ohio? Because Cleveland, Ohio is my home. I was born and raised here, and there’s no place I’d rather be than in the city I love, surrounded by the people I love. I know Cleveland like the back of my hand, and I want to share its beauty with you.

So if you’re looking for a local Cleveland Wedding photographer who is in it for more than a check, I am your guy!

What Cleveland Weddings Mean to Me.

Cleveland weddings mean community to me. They mean coming together to celebrate love and commitment, in good times and in bad. I’ve been fortunate enough to witness firsthand the power of love and how it can overcome any obstacle.

I remember one wedding in particular, during the midst of the pandemic. The bride and groom had to change their plans at the last minute, but they didn’t let that stop them from getting married. They gathered their closest family and friends and held a small, intimate ceremony in their backyard. There was so much love in that backyard, it was palpable.

It was moments like these that made me realize how important it is to document love stories. These stories are the backbone of our city, and they deserve to be told.

Why I Want to Be Your Photographer

I want to be your photographer because I believe in the power of love. I’ve seen what love can do, and I want to capture that for you. I want to capture your story in a way that is authentic and unique to you.

I’m not interested in cookie-cutter weddings or photos that all look the same. I want to capture your personality and your style, so when you look back on your wedding photos, they will take you right back to that moment in time.

Cleveland Weddings are Resilient

Cleveland weddings are some of the most resilient I’ve ever seen. No matter what life throws our way, we always find a way to come together and celebrate love.

I’ve seen weddings postponed due to COVID-19, but that didn’t stop couples from getting married. I’ve seen couples get married in their backyards, in their living rooms, and even in front of City Hall. No matter what, Clevelanders find a way to get hitched!
