Katie and Mason are college sweethearts and really, really cool people. They’re patient, kind to everyone, and appreciate quirky, artsy details. At my very first meeting with Katie and Mason, we talked about film photography and I knew I had to start shooting film before I photographed their wedding. When people understand what inspires you and why, you better believe that they will inspire you. I had so much fun pulling out my Mamiya at this awesome wedding because I knew Katie and Mason would appreciate it.
From Katie about Mason: “I feel safe with him. He pushes me to do things I wouldn’t normally do. He is usually funny (wink!). I like art and he’s good at it.”
From Mason about Katie: “She inspires me to enjoy everything around me in a way that I could never do on my own.”
See? Really cool people. Katie and Mason, I love how thoughtful you two are. I appreciate your sense of style and attention to detail. I like that you’re reserved but aren’t afraid to laugh at yourselves. I’m so grateful you two picked me as your wedding photographer, and I’ll remember your day for a long, long time. The best to you guys and your future!
The Alcazar Hotel in Cleveland Heights was the perfect backdrop for this artsy couple’s ceremony.
Then it was off to Rockefeller’s Restaurant in Cleveland Heights for their untraditional reception!
Katie and Mason opted to have an informal reception full of dancing when you felt like it, talking and laughing with the people they loved most, and the most delicious spread of food ready for the taking. There were no assigned seats and no rules! I loved it!
