Jacquelyn & Chris Hodgson // Cleveland Wedding Photographer


A friend and fellow Cleveland wedding photographer, Victoria, asked me if I’d be interested in second shooting a big wedding she had scheduled for the end of May. Before I could answer she also added that this client was a well known food truck owner and had competed on The Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race. Now, if you know me at all, you know I love all things food, and have a slight obsession with food related reality television (DO NOT TALK TO ME WHILE TOP CHEF IS ON ARE YOU CRAZY). So, of course I calmly said I would be happy to help out.

Chris and Jacquelyn were amazing! They were high school sweethearts and have been together for over 14 years! It was such an honor to be there to document their wedding. The location was beautiful, the food was incredible (obviously), and there were so many proud friends and family members that packed the dance floor all night. Well done, Hodgsons. Well done.

If you’re in the Cleveland area, go stand in line to get yourself some delicious food at either of Chris’s food trucks: Hodge Podge Truck or Dim and Dem Sum. Bring me some Sweet Potato Tater Tots!
You can also watch this talented chef compete on this season of Food Network’s Food Network Star! Best of luck Chris! And a big congratulations to you and Jacquelyn!

Wedding Album Design // Columbus Wedding Photographer


Just after receiving my new studio sample wedding album in the mail, which I’m showing off here because I love it, I came across an article advocating that clients order printed wedding albums designed by their wedding photographer. She has some great points, especially about making sure your wedding photos don’t become obsolete!

“Do it for your grandchildren. Because when they root around in your attic in 2075, they will have no idea what do with a USB key anymore than they would with a laser disc player.” -Kathleen Trenske

I looked at a lot of album companies before deciding who would be assembling albums for my clients. Craftsmanship and print quality had to be outstanding, and I wanted to make sure the finished product would hold up over time.

These album pages are printed on archival matte museum paper and the inks used are lightfast for generations. I couldn’t be happier with the print quality. The images look beautiful on the matte paper and I know they’ll continue to look that way for decades. The album pages lay flat and have no gutter or break at the binding. The full wrap photo cover has a protective coating that adds durability and resists smudges and fingerprints.

Although I custom design every album, the pics and the video should give you a sense of my aesthetic and overall approach to wedding album design.
