The Saint Francis of Assisi wedding of Amy and Matt…

Saint_Francis_wedding, La-Vera, East_4th, am_w_001

I hadn’t seen Amy since her and Matt’s engagement session. I had forgotten just how beautiful she was. There was an on and off drizzle outside the hotel and it was really quite chilly. But inside, Amy’s smile and the light in her eyes, promised it was going to be an epic Cleveland wedding day. And it was! The ceremony at Saint Francis of Assisi on Cleveland’s east side was beautiful and afterwards family and friends were smiling and laughing and wishing the new couple well. Everyone did a tremendous job with the bubbles considering the breeze pretty much instantaneously whooshed them away. The rain was holding off so it was onward to downtown Cleveland for some sweet wedding photography!  The whole wedding party was just too much fun and the girls braved the cold, breezy conditions of  Cleveland’s East Fourth Street like it was nothing! Amy’s amazing flowing dress was a perfect contrast to the somewhat gritty urban setting. And Matt’s grey three piece suit was perfect against all the brick and concrete. As a photographer I was in heaven! I didn’t want to leave. But we had to get to La-Vera Party Center to get on with the festivities! And what a blast we had! The whole day was dreamlike!!! Thanks Amy and Matt for letting me share it with you!!!

The Cleveland Metroparks engagement session of Niki and James…

Cleveland_metroparks, Bedford_Reservation, Engagement_Session, nj_01_Niki and I have a crazy history. It includes such things as dump trucks and the police. Now we’ve added to our sordid list a near-death hike and mukluks. I’ve always loved Niki and now after meeting James I can see why she loves him…can you say “perfect for each other!” I had a blast tearing up the trails with you guys and can’t wait until the wedding…where I’ll get to see all my old friends!!!
