In mid May, I got together with Aleks and Ben for a stylized portrait session in downtown Cleveland. Everything came together perfectly: Aleks and Ben didn't previously have any professional photographs together, they were just a few weeks shy of their fifth wedding anniversary, plus the weather was beautiful. Before the session, I picked up some fresh sunflowers just for fun, and they just happened to be the flower that Ben used to give to Aleks when they were dating!
We began the session at Shooters on the west bank of the Flats, then explored Heritage Park and the Center Street Swing Bridge nearby. After that, we went downtown to East Fourth Street for a few more images just before sunset. We topped off the night with a delicious, very Cleveland dinner at Yours Truly. Aleks and Ben are so down-to-earth, driven, and fun, and I'm so excited to share some favorite images below!
