Welshly Arms

Welshly Arms Concert Photos – Beachland Ballroom, Cleveland

Posted by | Live Music Photography | No Comments

Welshly Arms, a local indie-rock quartet, recently made a splash in the Cleveland music scene after being featured in ThisisCLE’s A Cleveland Anthem video. After listening to their discography more than a few times over, I definitely couldn’t pass up the chance to check them out for just $10 at the Beachland Ballroom last Saturday.

And can these guys jam! I feel like everyone in attendance got a unique opportunity to get on the ground floor of something big.

If you’re interested in checking out Welshly Arms, here’s their website and Bandcamp. If you’re a Google Music subscriber, their discography is on there too.

Of course, I wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity to take a few pictures, either. Considering that I only had a 50mm lens on hand, I’m really happy with how they turned out.

Chad, Sara & William - Winter Family Photos

Winter Family Photos: Chad, Sara & William

Posted by | Family Photography | No Comments

I had an itch to get back behind the camera, so I met my brother, sister-in-law, and nephew William at the park for some quick winter family photos. Even though the sun was out, the 20 degree weather got to us pretty quickly. Believe it or not, I think William made it longer out in the cold than the rest of us, he was having a blast. Below are some of my favorite photos!

I recently had the opportunity to help my good friend Ben Henceroth make a video for his campaign to be elected the first Governor of Brohio at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio this summer. After much anticipation, Ben was selected as a finalist and awarded the opportunity to campaign at Tribe Fest. This meant that he got to appear on stage in front of hundreds of fans, along with the three other finalists and Nick Swisher himself. In order to prove their worth, the finalists were grilled with questions from Swisher.

Recently the Cleveland Indians announced that they were seeking a Governor for Nick Swisher’s section 117, a.k.a Brohio, at Progressive Field this summer. One of my very good friends and die-hard Tribe fan, Ben, immediately jumped on the opportunity to represent his favorite team. Among many requirements, applicants were required to submit a video to prove why they were worthy of the position. Together with the help our good friend Matt (my wedding DJing business partner), we took on the challenge.

Mindy & Dave Engagement Shoot

Engagement Photos: Mindy & Dave

Posted by | Engagement Photography | No Comments

This weekend we braved the extra cold temperatures to snap some engagement photos of Mindy and Dave in their hometown of Wellington, Ohio. Our chilly adventure began in a friend of the couple’s barn, where we were glad to find a little shelter from the wind and snow. As soon as the snow let up a bit, we headed outside to take a few more photos. After that, we decided to call it quits–it was just too darn cold! Mindy and Dave were real troopers though! We’ll be seeing Mindy and Dave next September when we shoot their wedding ceremony and reception.
