After what seemed like a long hiatus away from my camera, I recently got the opportunity to meet Kaitlyn and Drew, a fun couple with a passion for the outdoors. We met in Rocky River on a late Saturday morning to shoot some photos while exploring the Rocky River Reservation—a beautiful park with no shortage of scenic [...]
I recently picked up a few Cactus Transceiver V6 triggers to help me get the flash off of my camera. While I've dabbled with this before with okay results, I've never gotten serious about it because, quite frankly, it's intimidating—more equipment, more light sources, more variables to control, and way more confusion. Looking to familiarize myself with my Cacti, [...]
In response to recent events including protests in Cleveland and the murder of two NYC police officers, the Sea of Blue Rally was organized to show support for men and women of law enforcement. After covering the #Ferguson2CLE protest last weekend, I felt compelled to take some photos at this rally as well.
Given the recent events in Ferguson and Cleveland, after hearing of a developing protest in the downtown area today, I had to get out there with my camera. It was literally happening at my doorstep, and I felt it was equal parts civil duty and a unique opportunity—something that I shouldn’t pass up.
Talk about a story book fall wedding! Mindy and Dave were married in an adorable little white church in Wellington, Ohio in late September—the perfect, crisp autumn weather and colorful leaves just added to the magic of the day.
Every so often I get the opportunity to take part in a wedding at a really unique location, and Carolyn and Mike's happened to be one of those occasions! The couple hired my wedding DJ company, MC Sound, to perform their ceremony and reception at the rainforest in the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo this past weekend. I absolutely couldn't pass up the opportunity to snap a few pictures while I was there.
Four and Twenty Mercantile is Cleveland’s vintage and custom design concept store. Owners Kim and Sean relish in fine design, found objects, re-invention, and exclusive, sustainable product lines. Their gorgeous space is a curated, evolving display of functional, yet elegant objects brought back to life through new contexts.
The Cleveland Air Show is something that I look forward to every year, especially the years that the Blue Angels are in town. Luckily, I had the entire weekend open this year, so I was able to watch them over all three days. Unfortunately, I don’t have a nice 200mm lens (or longer) at my disposal, so I had to make due with my good ole’ 85mm.
Reignwolf, moniker of hard rocker Jordan Cook, recently made a quick appearance in Cleveland at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, part of the museum's Summer in the City concert series. I had been looking forward to this show for quite some time—not only is Reignwolf a brilliant musician, but the concert series shows are completely free!
This past Friday at the Burning River Fest was the perfect night for live music, delicious food, fun entertainment, and fresh beer from one of Cleveland’s favorite local breweries. Guests enjoyed the fall-like temperatures at Whiskey Island as they explored three music stages, sampled some tasty Cleveland food truck fare, and sipped freshly brewed Great Lakes Christmas Ale.
