Nicole emailed us the day after she got engaged and said she had found us on Instagram and basically had to have us for her wedding. We were her first thought and that still blows me away! We spoke that week and have just clicked ever since. We finally got to meet in person a few weeks ago for her and Scott's engagement session in Cleveland! I was kind of nervous because I know how much Nicole loves photography and how carefully planned out the whole engagement session was. As soon as I met them, my nerves melted away! Scott is the kind of person who just makes everyone feel at ease with his humor, kindness and easy going personality. Nicole is just the right amount of shy and sweet and just feels like one of your best girlfriends. Did I mention how gorgeous they are together? I was floored when they walked up behind me at Starbucks looking like a million bucks!

We had a lovely time exploring the grounds of the Cleveland Museum of Art and joked about our mutual love of symmetry. I feel like we just get each other. We ended the night at the beach in Edgewater Park. It was a Monday night and it was PACKED. Not sure why but we dodged people and a few dead fish and had a great time.

I look forward to our continued relationship and the stunning wedding next year, you two!

Enjoy our (many) faves.

Maternity, FamilyJessica PattonComment

I photographed Catherine and Jacob's wedding 4 years ago. They were one of those couples I just instantly clicked with and we've been friends ever since! I am honored that they come back to us for photos every single year ( and drive from Cleveland ). This year is a tad different because they are expecting their first baby!!! It was not an easy road for them to get here and I could not be happier for them. I CANNOT wait to meet their little one and see them become parents!!!

We met at the Marblehead Lighthouse State Park for their session. Neither of us had ever been there and it is SO BEAUTIFUL!!! If anyone else wants to go there for a session, we're totally down.

Enjoy our faves...

This blog post is massive and I apologize for that. Sorry not sorry? We just love this couple, wedding, venue and day WAY TOO MUCH. 

Amanda and David tied the knot on May 25, 2018 at the Grosse Pointe War Memorial. The venue alone is like a scene out of a movie. Throw in a couple that is beyond perfect together, all their friends and family and some gorgeous details? Well that my friends = perfection.

We still talk about David's emotions that day (he is the emotional one of the two ). It was dang near the cutest thing ever and every time he cried, I cried... behind the camera of course. Their first look is one of my favorites ever. Just scroll down and check out David's face.... I'll wait....

Cutest. First Look. Ever. Am I right?

There is not much else to say other than, THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for trusting us to capture your day. It will forever go down in history as one of our faves.

Now grab a drink and enjoy reliving this amazing day!!


The day certainly would not have been possible without this amazing crew. All spectacular!
