The Crew

When Capture Cleveland began, my goal was to provide a great quality service for our clients, supply a wide range of diverse photography services, continue my education in this craft and have fun with this new found passion of mine. But as the company grew, my goals began to change. I now wanted to grow a team and family of photographers that could not only photograph well but also learn from each other and share our passion of this art together.
Each of our crew members are unique in various ways, and each of them brings something new and fresh to the Capture Cleveland crew. Some of them are nurses, others are schoolteachers, some work in the corporate world, and others own their very own photography companies. I personally sought out photographers that were more than “just a photographer.” I looked for bright personalities and creative minds – witty, charismatic and bold individuals who were willing to embark on something bigger than themselves. And I most definitely found that with my team.
It is very important to me that our clients actually get to know their photographers beyond their camera skills! Knowing what kind of cameras we shoot with and how many years we’ve been in the industry is important, but what’s more important to us is actually knowing and vibing with your photographer. Making small talk about things that come up, creating little inside jokes and having something in common with who we’re working with allows us to give our clients the best photos possible.

Meet our crew! Ask us questions! Allow us to get to know you beyond your photography needs, and I promise you the positive results will reflect in your photos. Real moments with real people. We are Capture Cleveland Photography!

Ever since I was young, I’ve loved to capture moments. But as years went on, it slowly turned into a love of capturing art! As a photographer, I find that beauty is everywhere, and photography gives you a reason to go out and look for it, especially in unexpected and unpredictable places.
Beyond photography, I love being outdoors in the summer sun! Walking outside and feeling the warmth on my face is extremely satisfying. I also love yoga!

Back in high school my parents gave me my first camera & I was instantly hooked! I suppose you could say it was.. Love at first sight. Two things that make me the happiest in life are learning new things & experiencing new places, so obviously photography was an amazing outlet for both of those things.

Although most people would not agree with this, my favorite season is winter! Snowboarding, sledding, hiking, even driving in the snow is fun! I believe photography is important because it allows us to capture a moment in time & express it in its raw form or in your own vision. Random fact about me.. I can speak 3 languages. Ask me which ones!

Grace

Lead Photographer

I love people and nature! I like to learn people’s stories and find out all the little details that make them special. This ties into my love for photography, which also tells a story. I feel privileged that I can capture an image that no one else has captured. It makes me feel free and powerful!
Other than photography, I enjoy painting, drawing and hiking. However, I love the quicker turnaround of photography because with painting I am impatient. If you catch me at a bar you’ll probably find me sipping on a classic daiquiri or Spanish wine. What’s your favorite cocktail?

Anytime you consider photographing a moment in your life, you know it’s a moment you want to hang onto forever. I am a very observant person, so I love seeing people in their rawest moments. In wedding photography, this is huge for capturing amazing photos!

Beyond photography, I’m always down for a good game night with friends, quality time with my puppy and any Cleveland sporting event! Go Tribe! Go Cavs! Go Browns! DILLY DILLY!

Photographing memories and emotions that people may not have seen or remembered otherwise is why photography is so important in life. If I’m not spending time with my friends and family, I enjoy traveling and exploring new places, especially in summer. Long days and warm summer nights are the best for traveling.
The most important thing to know about me is that I am an expert at Super Mario Bros.!

Sam

Lead Photographer

I became a photographer because I enjoy storytelling, especially in the visual form like in the National Geographic magazines I used to read in my grandfather’s study. To see life from someone else’s point of view is an amazing thing, and I consider it privilege. Two fun facts about me:
1. I was a state champion in archery.
2. My first camera was a disposable one that I stole when I was 8 years old.

Ashlee

Lead Photographer

As much as I love photography & taking photos, I am beyond camera shy when it’s my turn to be in front of the camera! But when I’m behind my camera I absolutely love to capture all of the important, memorable & raw moments of someone’s life.

Having the ability to not only capture those moments, but also being able to look back at those memories at anytime is an exhilarating feeling whether it’s with clients or my own family.
