I think most brides and grooms feel they have to hit a bunch of different locations to make their day great. There’s this overarching feeling that the day’s not a success (photographically) unless we’re in a ton of different geographical points.  Not true.  Not true at all.

Photojournalistic Wedding Photographer ClevelandWe spent all day at The Westin downtown and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

Candid Wedding Photographers ClevelandHonestly, Daven has one of the most genuine smiles I’ve ever seen.  Sometimes, I’m charged with loosening people up, making them laugh and creating comfort.  It’s better for photos.  I didn’t have to do that with him around.  Made my job easier, bro.  ‘Preciate you.

Unique Wedding Photographer Cleveland^^Favorite of the day, by far.

Candid Wedding Photographers ClevelandPhotojournalistic Wedding Photographer ClevelandPhotojournalistic Wedding Photographer ClevelandI love this portrait of Naeemah.  The sun is backlighting her, but also bouncing off of the mirror she’s looking into.  It provided this soft quality of light that I can’t always produce.  This candid is was captured pre-make-up, if you can even believe it 😀

Unique Wedding Photographer ClevelandCleveland Reception VenuesThese are sorority sisters.  They did a pretty-much choreographed dance full of inside jokes, or so it seemed.  Lots of hip-moving, lots of arm-rotation, lots of stuff I can’t do.

Thanks, Naeemah and Daven, for welcoming me into the fold.  I loved capturing the day for you.  I learned so many dance moves, I can’t even….
