People Who Ride | Cleveland Photographer

Lakewood, Ohio. 2014

Last Friday was Bike to Work Day and I hung out at the Lakewood Energizer Station. Such is life, it rained 90% of the morning, which meant we didn't have as many people hanging out. What can you do?

The great thing about Lakewood is that it seems like everyone has a bicycle (or two. or three). Whether they race, commute, run errands, ride with the family, or barhop, everyone seems to ride. And with that, there is a general appreciation for one another. They all want safer roads, more vacation time, and to shoot the shit over their morning coffee or afternoon adult beverage. It's a fantastic little community to be apart of. 

Melissa + Drew's Cleveland Engagement

This session is going down in the books an all time favorite, for several reasons. First, they jumped at the idea of shooting at 6am. Second, they didn't mind at all that it was drizzling the entire time we shot. We even ventured down to the beach without umbrellas! Three, I worked with them earlier this year when I photographed their pup, Charlie, which was also another favorite shoot of mine. And last but not least, they are pros in front of the camera. I always do a pre-wedding shoot to avoid running into camera shyness come the big day, but honestly, these two couldn't have been more natural from the get go. Now the count down begins for their fabulous fall wedding....
