Lee and Carolyn's St. Ambrose Catholic Church, Mapleside Farms Wedding | Cleveland Wedding Photographer
We kicked off the 2017 wedding season with Lee and Carolyn's beautiful Cleveland Wedding. We started the day at St. Ambrose Catholic Church for the wedding ceremony. It's a great location, with natural light streaming in through the many skylights. Once the happy couple was hitched, it was off to Mapleside Farms for portraits and the reception. We lucked out with the weather, and were able to capture some amazing images on the grounds (check out that view!). Everyone had a blast, Lee and Carolyn even hand made ceramic bowls as gifts for their guests (be sure to take a look at the photo below)! Congratulations and thanks to a great couple for having us as their wedding photographers.
James and Eleni's Parkside Church, Old Cleveland Courthouse Wedding | Cleveland Wedding Photographer
The holidays are a wonderful time for a wedding! We were lucky enough to be the photographers for James and Eleni's beautiful Cleveland wedding day. The day started at Parkside church where the ladies got ready. After a touching first look, it was time for the ceremony, complete with Christmas trees and poinsettias! From there, it was off to the Old Cleveland Courthouse in downtown Cleveland. It's an absolutely stunning location for wedding photos and the wedding reception. The band (Redline) kept the party rocking late into the evening, and we had a great time! Thanks to an awesome couple for having us as their wedding photographers.

PS. Planning a cool Cleveland wedding? Holla at us here, we'd love to hear all about it!
We spent an amazing fall day with John and Lisa for their Cleveland wedding. It was a grand tour of iconic Cleveland wedding locations. Starting at the Rennaisance (be sure to check out the gorgeous shot of the dress). The ceremony was at the Old Stone Church, a historic church located right on Public Square. After the ceremony, we hopped on Lolly the Trolley to hit all the good photo spots: Public Square, Edgewater Park, Voinivich Park, and East 4th Street. So much fun! Once we were back at the beautiful Rennaisance Hotel, the party kicked into gear. We had a blast with such a fun couple. Thanks for having us as your wedding photographers!

It was an awesome summer day for a wedding at Peacock Ridge, and we were so happy to be Pat and Caitlyn's wedding photographers! Peacock Ridge is an amazing location for an outdoor wedding, with a ton of character and cool locations for photos! The ladies got dressed in the cutest little cottage overlooking the lake. After all of the hair and make up was finished, the bride and groom had a touching first look. Then it was time for portraits around the property before the wedding ceremony. The ceremony was right next to the lake, with Caitlyn and her dad making a very dramatic entrance. Once the couple was hitched, we headed around the farm for a few more portraits. We did sneak out later to take advantage of a dramatic sky. The night ended with a super fun sparkler exit. Thanks to a cool and laid back couple for a fun day!
We started a beautiful Friday wedding with Richard and Noelle at the villas at Gervasi Vineyard. After everyone was ready, it was time for a gorgeous ceremony at St. Peter's Church in Canton. Once the bride and groom had tied the knot, it was back to Gervassi for photos in the vineyard and also along the lake. Gervassi has to be one of the most beautiful locations for wedding photography in our area, and it didn't dissappoint! The pavilion on the lake was gorgeous, with everyone have a blast into the evening. Thanks to Richard and Noelle for having us as their wedding photographers!
We had a fantastic day with Joe and Emily at Roses Run Country Club, one of our favorite Akron Wedding locations. All of the events took place at the club, which made for a laid back day (as much as a wedding day can be!). After a touching first look, we hopped in golf carts and headed out to the course for portraits, no worries, everyone made it back in one piece... From there, it was on to the beautiful candle lit ceremony upstairs. Then it was time to party! The Beach Boys had the club rocking all night, except when we snuck Joe and Emily out for some stunning sunset Wedding Photography. Thanks and congratulations to an awesome couple .
Becky and Jenn chose the Exploration Gateway at Sippo Lake for their summer wedding, and it's an awesome location! Sippo Lake creates a beautiful backdrop, and the staircase made for quite a grand entrance. After the ceremony, we took advantage of the grounds around the park for portraits. Once we wrapped up the portraits, it was time to move inside for the party. It's always fun to see how happy our couples are on their wedidng day, but these two ladies kicked it up a notch! Congratulations and thank you for having us as your wedding photographers.
Drew and Brittany's Lakewood United Methodist, Columbia Ballroom Wedding | Cleveland Wedding Photographer
It was a perfect Friday for a Cleveland wedding. We started the day at Lakewood United Methodist church with the ladies getting ready. After some beautiful photos of the wedding dress, it was time for the wedding ceremony. The church is a gorgeous Cleveland Wedding location. We even shot a photo of all of the guests who attended the wedding! From there, it was off to the Cultural Gardens in University Circle (another Cleveland Wedding classic) for portraits of the bride and groom with the wedding party. It's one of our favorite Cleveland wedding photography locations, and it didn't disappoint. Once the portraits were finished, it was time for the party at the Columbia Ballroom. We even managed to time up some sunset photos perfectly. Thanks so much to Drew and Brittany for having us as their wedding photographers!
We spent the most beautiful day with Dan and Sarah this week and couldn't get enough of the views at Allardale Lodge! Our day started with the bride and her ladies getting ready at her parent's house. From there, we headed out to Allardale Lodge. The ceremony took place at the top of a hill with one of the best views I can think of for an Akron Wedding. Once these two were hitched, we took advantage of the grounds around the lodge for some awesome wedding photography. There are so many great spots, and the sunset was perfect. After the portraits, it was time to head inside for the wedding reception. Everyone had a blast, including these two akron wedding photographers. Congratulations and thank you for having us as your wedding photographers!
We had another great wedding Saturday at a few of our favorite Akron Wedding venues. We started the day at First United Methodist Church in Cuyahoga Falls with the ladies getting ready. The parlor is a wonderful place for photographs! Once all the finishing touches were put on, we headed to the sanctuary for the wedding ceremony. After the I Do's it was time for the wedding photography. We absolutely love the third floor of Greystone Hall as a location for wedding portraits, it's so classic! Something New Entertainment really got the party going, with all of the guests partying into the night. Thanks so much to one of the nicest couples for having us as your wedding photographers!
