Megan & RyanCleveland Engagement Photos

“Hey, Hunter,” Megan beckoned across the Cleveland Museum of Art courtyard. They’d spotted me first. I had been nervously pacing, but that now melted away. It was time to start their Cleveland engagement photos.

Megan and I hugged, and then I shook Ryan’s hand. “How are you, sir? Can you believe this weather?”

This day was perfection. The sky was completely clear. The warm air lightly shifted about, creating a barely discernible breeze. We had collectively planned this day for quite some time. There was discussion about me coming to Boston. After some back and forth, we settled on Cleveland instead. We still had to choose final locations, which led to some more back and forth. I’m certain that Megan & Ryan had many other decisions to make as well. I’d say there was lots of wardrobe discussion, but let’s be honest, these two are naturally stylish.

More important than all of the planning was attitude. Megan and Ryan are so perfect together, and even more perfect in photos. They were immediately relaxed (wine helps) and engaged with each other. I think the best word to describe their Cleveland engagement photos would be heartfelt. As we worked, we all had a connection together. The connection created a natural warmth that comes through in the photos. That connection got me a bit excited. I even remarked on it during the shoot.

When their Cleveland engagement photos were done, Megan & Ryan headed out for a dinner at L’Albatross. Meanwhile, I rushed back to the office. Immediately, I shoved the film into an express envelop. I had to get the images completed immediately. I needed, like needing water, to see the photos. When the film was finished, I realized everything I had hoped for came true. I love every inch of the photos below, and then some. More so, working with Megan & Ryan has been a dream.

I certainly hope you enjoy the highlights below as much as I.

The photo below is a happy accident. My camera bumped my hip and fired – and I love the resulting image. Go figure!

Lavender & Sage Styled Bridal Shower Photography Published by Showerbelle

I still get excited every time this happens, although I am not sure why. Maybe it’s akin to a child waiting for Christmas, knowing the excite that is just around the corner. I love sharing the wedding work I capture around Cleveland, so press features are always a welcome treat.

Last year, I worked with an amazing team of wedding professionals to capture a Lavender & Sage themed wedding elopement. Set amongst a real lavender farm near Cleveland, the session features some amazing scenery and design concepts. At the time, the team was thrilled to see it featured by another amazing blog.

Seeing that the style shoot also looked like an amazing bridal shower photography, Showerbelle just published the Lavender & Sage shoot as a new feature. I’m thrilled that Showerbelle included our work amongst some stunning work from other wedding professionals. You definitely have to stop by and check out the feature, as well as some of the other work Showerbelle has to show.

Just below you can enjoy a couple highlights from this shoot. Much more can be seen over at Showerbelle. Enjoy!
