Cleveland Ohio LGBTQ+ Engagement in the Flats & Edgewater Park: Baylee + Kris

Kris + Baylee reached out to me to shoot their Cleveland fall engagement, and so I made a shooting day trip of it, on the first Thursday of November. After I finished up with my family session client in Beachwood, I headed downtown to meet up with these two. We started in the Flats, which despite being born & raised in Cleveland, I’ve barely spent any time in. So it was nice to explore a completely new location! And I loved meeting Kris and Baylee of course, getting to know them better. It was a chilly afternoon but we were starting to get some golden hour light to work with. And my clients were appropriately dressed with stylish long coats!

Afterwards, we stopped at the Prince mural down the street, had a quick outfit change, and then headed to Edgewater Park for some beach photos. As I say often, being in central Ohio, I never get to shoot by the water much, so shooting at the beach in Cleveland is always a special treat. The temps were really dropping by then, and we were definitely the only people at the beach! Kris and Baylee toughed out the temps and the wind and we were rewarded with some gorgeous moody beach shots that honestly blew me away as I was taking them. Cleveland showing up for me again, as always!

Kris and Baylee loved their shoot and the experience so much, that a couple weeks later they booked me for their September 2022 wedding – in Georgia!! I’m excited to travel there and continue to capture their love story!

I aim to capture moments and expressions that tell the story of a day, and are authentic to the people involved. If you can look at a collection of images I’ve taken of a total stranger and get a feeling for who they are and what they felt, then I’ve done my job!
