Zach + Crystal Engaged!


Zach and Crystal are a perfect couple for the way I like to take photographs.  I'm not a huge fan of real "posey" shots because I think even though they look beautiful at times, they lack the sense of real, authentic emotion that I love to capture with my photography.  I've explored this type of "natural" photography for a while now and one thing I've discovered is that if a couple feels comfortable being themselves with me then outstanding images usually follow close behind.  Human emotion, specifically the genuine emotion that is expressed in loving relationship is the subject that most interests me.  Sometimes it takes time to capture this and sometimes it's not easy.  As soon as I took my first one or two pictures of Zach and Crystal I knew that this was going to be an engagement session that took very little effort on my part and would capture a very powerful view of what these two possessed.

There were so many to choose from, but here is a small sample.  Cleveland looked more beautiful this evening than any I remember.
