Danielle + Joel's Wedding: Cleveland, OH
Most of my clients come to me as a referral. To know that someone thought so highly of me as to refer their loved ones to me for some of the BIGGEST moments of their lives is so amazing. This time, Danielle's sister in law, who also happens to be a photographer, initially reached out to check my availability. Because she was the professional, it was her job to find the photographer. No pressure or anything, right?! :-) Thankfully, I was available and because Danielle and Joel trusted their sister (and also loved my work) I got the honor of being their wedding photographer.
Although we didn't get the chance to meet in person until after they booked, I knew we would get along perfectly. Our fist in person meeting was during the walk through of their venue, The Metropolitan at the 9 in downtown Cleveland. Danielle and I both loved the unique hotel, the moody feel, and the beautiful elegance of the venue. Not meeting in person until after booking is something I've come across a lot lately. A lot of millennials are moving to bigger metropolitan areas after college, yet choose to come back home for their big day!
On the day of the wedding, I'd have to say, Danielle and Joel were one of my most easygoing couples. They truly were in the moment and went with the flow. Their perfect day was filled with family and friends, plenty of laughs, and a pretty amazing party. Thank you, Danielle and Joel for letting me be a part of your day!
And last, but not least, Happy Founder's Day to Danielle and all the ladies of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc!
