"My husband and I can not say enough good things about Ted and Rachel! They are such amazing photographers! They are the sweetest people, and so much fun to work with. We are so so so impressed with our wedding pictures & also our engagement pictures! Your wedding will not be complete if you use a different photographer! You will be absolutely blown away with Rachel and Teds work :) I literally look at our pictures every day! It is such an amazing feeling after the wedding to be able to look back at pictures and feel the joy you felt that special day all over again! -THEY CAPTURE EVERY SINGLE MOMENT :) Literally amazing! I work for a bridal shop, and I see different photographers work every day, and none of them come close to comparing to Ted & Rachel! I would recommend them to every one I know!"
We encourage our clients to schedule a significant amount of time for photography after the ceremony. This time can possibly be the most valuable part of our service. We realize the importance of all the many details of the day, and we advise our clients to remember the importance and value of the photographs after everything else is done.
Location shooting can be a fun way to include some variety in your photography. Beforehand, we discuss with the bride and groom exactly what style and look they would like for their wedding photography and go scouting for places that would work. We look for locations based off what is best for the personality of each client as well as taking into account quality of light. We look also to find places that will not be over-used and over-run on any given weekend. This most times will take us off the beaten path to locations that are unknown or different from other brides, grooms, and Cleveland wedding photographers.
When photographing our clients, we encourage movement and interaction to display the relationships and connections that already exist instead of creating forced moments. We find people look their best when they are relaxed and enjoying each other. It is then that we can capture the absolute best expressions and moments to tell your story.
Our approach also includes a personal passion and love for photography that keeps us always shooting for ourselves as well as our clients. We begin every wedding as a challenge to see something different than last week, and every couple as if they were our first.
We are confident, we are committed, we will push the boundaries while being creative. We are consistent in our form, but unique on each wedding day to capture your day the way you desire. Our resume boasts 10 years of creating lifetime wedding day memories with knowledge that is unparalleled in our industry. Backed by a decades worth of experience we carry a natural talent and technique fueled by our passion to capture every wedding day moment exactly how you envision it.
