Photographing Lauren and Chris’ Renaissance Cleveland wedding was an absolute blast! The hotel rooms at the Renaissance are very large. This made it easy to move around in the morning.

Adirondacks Engagement Session | Amanda + Travis
Adirondacks Engagement Session | Amanda + Travis
This weekend I was able to travel to the Adirondacks to photograph Amanda and Travis. These two love being out and about in the wilderness, so it made sense that we spent their engagement session canoeing, kayaking and hiking a mountain to a beautiful view. There are really no words that can express the beauty that we witnessed, so I’ll hope that these photos do the day justice.
