We find that most people want stunning wedding photos but they don't want to feel awkward or overly posed in front of the camera. Honestly, we feel the same.
At Dragonfly Photography, we want you to be so caught up with the sound of your best friend's contagious laughter and the look in your grooms eyes when he sees you in your dress for the first time that you forget there is anything happening other than having the most perfect day of your life.
We are Cleveland wedding photographers who, when you invite us to photograph your wedding we'll create timeless images that will transport you back, so
that you remember not only what it looked like, but what it felt like when you kissed as a married couple for the first time and the church erupted with joy.
When we photograph your day, we'll treat your family and friends like they're our family and friends and we'll do it with enough passion and excitement that you'll never feel awkward in front of the camera.
That Tell the
Story of Everything
Important to You
We believe in creating stunning images that tell the story of everything important to you.
Which means you get to enjoy every moment, and have stunning photographs that take you right back, even generations to come.
Learn more about what you'll experience as one of our couples and why albums are such a vital part of that journey. You'll also find a FREE wedding planning download to help you navigate the planning process.
You’ve waited so long for such an important day and these are moments that simply don’t come with second chances.
Your wedding day should be about savoring the day that is going to go by so quickly. How will it feel when you finally meet at the end of the aisle? Stolen glances throughout the night, seeing that sweet look you’ve come to adore, dancing with grandma on the dance floor… memories that are, truly, irreplaceable.
Dragonfly Photography is an internationally award-winning wedding photography studio that frequently travels the world but calls Cleveland, Ohio home. When you choose us as your Cleveland wedding photographers, you don't have to stress about your wedding photography, or missing those once in a lifetime moments again.
You'll be able to be present with those you love on your wedding day and the images captured will be a legacy to hold in your hands and share with the generations that come.
If you’re simply looking for a photographer to show up and take photos, you'll find a better fit elsewhere.
If you’re looking for a luxury experience, with a small team of people who care just as much about your day, fretting over every detail, working hand-and-hand with your planner to make sure that your only job is to relax and say ‘I do’ to the love of your life as we celebrate alongside you…
we would love to start a conversation with you

Not Just the Best in Cleveland, THE BEST
“The absolute best! Oona and her team are not just the best in Cleveland, they’re the best Periodt! Their attention to detail, ability to read the room and willingness to go above and beyond is unmatched. Oona literally became my husband and I’s second family members. She not only made our wedding pictures beautiful but our wedding day beautiful as she took on the role of coordinator when things went awry. Her skill is obviously unmatched but the silver lining of Oona is her heart. We love Dragonfly Photo and you are honestly playing yourself if you book with ANYONE else!!"

MUST READ FEATURES
Cleveland is filled with an unusually high number of beautiful wedding venues for a city of it's size. A few of our favorites? The Cleveland Arcade, offers a unique venue that you're going to be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. Beautiful 1920's architecture filled with the charm of the era and loaded with convenience. If classic architecture and old-world vibe is your thing, but with a downtown location that puts you close to everything, you might want to look at The Old Courthouse as an option. But it doesn't get more chic than a rooftop Metropolitan at the 9 wedding in downtown Cleveland. Click the photos below for for more information on each venue.
