There is a certain comfort you develop with clients. The comfort can come slowly, creeping in from the edges, or quickly like lightning. I developed a deep comfort with Sami & John. More so with them than with most clients. For me, that comfort clearly contributed to their Cleveland Courthouse wedding photography.
I first met Sami at her cousin’s wedding. Shortly after our first introduction, Sami & John were sitting in my office to discuss their upcoming Cleveland Courthouse wedding. In that moment, I immediately felt at home with with them. Strangely, I could almost see the future. I could see that we could create something amazing together.
At their engagement session, the comfort working together was immediately apparent. They opened their life together to me. Offered me trust in their relationship and allowed me to capture how they are together. We captured easy moments, but also honest ones. The results of the engagement session simply made me anticipate their wedding even more.
Sami & John’s wedding quickly became my most anticipated of the year. Finally, the day arrived and it was honestly perfect. The whole wedding day flowed effortlessly. It was filled with loving friends, affectionate family, and gorgeous weather. And the honesty remained. Sami, John and I moved through their wedding day with a certain ease that comes out in the photos below.
By the time we reached their Cleveland Courthouse wedding reception, we were all primed for a party. Toasts were given, with some tears, and the dances begun. Before long, it was time to wrap up one amazing day. To close, we snuck up to the second floor of the Cleveland Courthouse to capture emotional end-of-night photos.
We shared a hug and I wished them safe travels for their honeymoon. The story won’t end there, though. I know the comfort, trust and friendship will continue for a long time to come.
