Autumn & Jay
We are Autumn and Jay! Well mostly Autumn, Jay is quietly in the background ninja-ing something, taking care of the little details, being awesome in his own understated way. We are a husband and wife photography team here in the Cleveland area. We love this gig. There’s nothing more I could hope for than this amazing career with the person I love most in the entire world. It doesn’t get much better than this.
But who are we?
We love to travel and eat good food. We love concerts and although we have kids we still rock out – we think music is the best ever. We both love to laugh! It’s our favorite thing. We love being around people who love to laugh with us. Not that polite contained laugh, but that good, deep down, uncontrollable belly laugh. Those are the best kind. We believe a good “that’s what she said” joke will never be out of style. We both love movies, I dig a good rom-com, while Jay loves himself a good old fashioned horror flick and we meet in the middle at The Hangover… see how this laughing thing is a theme?
Target and Amazon Prime are our weaknesses. We both just want all the things. We have giant families and enjoy being in the chaos of it all. The center of the storm.
We love to have fun and are laid back, we believe putting the work in ahead of time and being prepared let’s us do that on your wedding day. Let’s face it, stress doesn’t look good on anyone. Not only have we shot more weddings than you can shake a stick at (making us prepared for anything that comes our way) but we also have 3 kids, so we are used to rolling with the punches, turning on a dime and just straight up being awesome!
Hi, I’m Autumn
My three gorgeous baby girls + handsome hubby make my world go round. I love marshmallow cappuccinos, people who can make me laugh, champagne, pedicures, Kate Spade, Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, and binge-watching Netflix, like a season in a weekend sort of binging. My collection of concert tees might just be my most prized possession and anytime I’m not required to be dressed up, you can bet I’m wearing one of those!
I graduated from Kent State University in 2011. I am an active member of the Professional Photographers of America and the Wedding Photographers Association. I love learning and I continue to take classes every chance I get. There’s always something new to learn in photography and it’s fantastic! Oh, and not to brag or anything, but I’ve won some pretty awesome awards for my photography. We’re talking international awards here, you know if you care about that sort of thing. No biggie.
YOU ARE MY PRIORITY
We live crazy, beautiful lives. So do you. Adding the stress of planning a wedding to that can get pretty overwhelming. No fear, we do this all the time, we’ve got your back. That’s just who we are and what we do. We feel pretty damn lucky to get to do it with such awesome people and we love to help in any way we can. Need someone to look over the schedule of the day with you? Need help figuring out where you’ll stand for your vows, to have the best light? Ahhhh, choosing the right vendors is tough, we’ll hook you up with referrals to our favorite wedding pros. Style, posing, logistics — basically, we’ve got you.
This is Jay
He is my rock, my best friend, and the love of my life. Cheesy, I know, but I speak the truth.
I love his shiny bald head and the salt and pepper beard he rocks. He can make me laugh harder than any human being on this planet – even when I’m mad at him because we are married after all.
He loves to cook and old school hip hop, has a major sweet tooth, and is a master of random trivia. He likes to get out of town at any given opportunity. His daddy skills make my heart melt and he always lets me choose our next Netflix binge. We are opposites in almost every way, but he says that makes us a better team (I can’t disagree).
