Heather and Dave tied the knot 5 years ago and have been a strong couple loving our sometimes under-loved City of Cleveland ever since. I spent a Golden Hour with their adorable family of four walking along the Cuyahoga River in The Flats last week. They have two of the cutest, most laid-back kids you'll ever meet. Baby Fiona's captivating blue eyes drilled through every photograph, a natural little beauty, who quietly took everything in. Her big brother Leonardo "zoom-zoomed" (in his own words) along the sidewalk, stopping for every plane and train he heard; what a very typical little boy.
35th Wedding Anniversary + Family Photos
Lakewood | Ohio
My childhood friend, Heather, who I have stayed close with for 23 years now (yikes!) asked me to surprise her parents with family photographs to remember their 35th wedding anniversary by. As Heather is a photographer herself (see her work here), it was an honor to be a part of their little celebration.
As I held my camera taking in the lovely Cleveland skyline from the Pier W balcony, I was shown a photo album of the original family gathering at the start of Ken + Theresa's marriage. Heather snapped a few images of her parents in between my photos and I stood there, in the same place they had 35 years ago, witnessing the culmination of hard work and love that make up a marriage.
