the mother-daughter dynamic duo

We are Karen and Gen, an established super team since 1997. Our secret power is we have a lot of fun at weddings, and we make sure you do too! We have a soft spot for the non traditional people that don't want overly posed imagery. The ones who want the pictures to tell their story, not just a story. Whether a wedding day or a session day, its meant to be fun and full of joy, so we make sure our energy aligns with your vision. We do everything we can to ensure that photography is the least stressful but most perfectly captured part of your day. 
We love calling Cleveland our home, and are so happy to photograph weddings in Cleveland, Akron and Canton, and all of Northeast Ohio. Destination weddings are always welcome, we have our bags already packed.

I love a good Netflix binge, especially something that is offbeat and quirky. I'm pretty sure Wes Anderson created all of his movies with me in mind. We are soul mates, he just doesn’t know it yet.
I'm a wife to my Nick, and a mom to two beautifully creative daughters. We are proud to call Cleveland home, and stoked to live in such a cool city.

i love reading and telling a good story

Gen is blazing her way through the Kent State’s Visual Arts program, and has her current Dean’s List letter on the family refrigerator to prove it. Gen has a camera on her at all times, and an Instagram feed full of awesomeness.
When Gen is not photographing or studying, she’s traveling overseas on her next big adventure.
