Sam

Director of Photography and Videography

Hi, I’m Sam! Growing up I was always enlisting the neighborhood kids to act in my short films using my dad’s camera. After taping over my sister’s fifth birthday with the much more exciting “Giant Robot Fight 4”, my career was tragically cut short. Once I entered High school I was selected to learn film after school in the darkroom by an art teacher that took an interest in me. I have been shooting ever since professionally, in both commercial and lifestyle for over four years.

My favorite part of shooting is being on location and meeting new people in interesting places. I have been inspired by many of the old school journalists like Robert Frank, Diane Arbus, and Saul Leiter. Outside of photography I enjoy biking, reading and attending concerts of all genres!

Two truths and a lie:

1) I was a state archery champion
2) My Photos have been published in Japan
3) I have seen John Mayer in concert ten times

Jason

Lead Photographer

Hello! My name is Jason and I’m a wedding photographer with the one and only Cufflink Media. I love photography because photos are more than just photos. The feelings they show and the feelings that they can give are what motivates me to capture those smiles.

My passion for photography started when I enrolled in a digital photography class in high school. In school, a photo of mine was chosen out of thousands of students to be displayed in a gallery in New York. This ignited my fuel to be creative and inspired me to turn my passion into a career. Photography wasn’t the only love I found in high school however. I also met the woman I now call my wife. And after having a wedding myself, I’ve gotten to see first hand the important moments and beautiful smiles that should be preserved forever. I can’t wait to capture them with you!

Olivia

Lead Videographer

Hi, Olivia here! I graduated from Tri-C’s media arts and sciences program in 2015. After working on several independent film projects, I began working in the wedding industry in April of 2016.

In addition to my work with Cuff Link Media, I also produce video for social media for several organizations serving the transgender community of greater Cleveland. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my two cats Starlight and Moondog in Lakewood.

Matt

Lead Photographer

Hello! My name is Matt. I have been doing photography for over 7 years now. My first weddings were for friends, but they have blossomed into so much more.

My favorite part of weddings is doing posed shots with the couple. I like to choose locations that really reflect the couples personality. Whether it be industrial, modern, or rural – I absolutely love the moment when I show them a quick take of what I just shot and they go crazy for it.

My goal as a wedding photographer is to make everyone feel relaxed and comfortable. If I’ve done my job well you won’t even know you are creating a good photo!

In my spare time I love to take landscape photography and capture the unbridled beauty of nature.

Jake

Lead Videographer

Jake here! I discovered my love for making videos in middle school when I got my first digital camera. Having a portable, digital video maker in my hand opened up unlimited possibilities! My friends and I spent countless afternoons and weekends exploring those possibilities. Video evolved into my passion the more I worked with it. It became my version of art that I continue to create to this day.

I got involved in creative services through many friends. I started alone, but as I made friends who shared my passion I was able to grow and share ideas with so many people, leading me to find a way to make videos for others.

Fun Fact: I fixed a plane mid flight once. It was the bathroom door, but I saved the flight staff HOURS of maintenance and they gave me free stuff for the rest of the flight.

Ian

Lead Videographer

Hello, my name is Ian. As a child, I always had an interest in storytelling. This interest flourished in the form of a high school class that helped myself realize that I enjoyed not only the act of telling a story, but also the reactions of those who watched it. Because of this, I focus on shots and moments that will not only tell a great story from your wedding, but also shots that will stick in your mind long after you’ve finished watching.
