  • Amber was our lead photographer for our engagement session and wedding day. She is truly amazing at what she does. She was so great to work with, so caring, so fun and truly loves what she does! Our favorite wedding vendor BY FAR. Amazing photos, and a quick turn around time! Truly in awe of what this amazing photography team did for our wedding day.

  • We wholeheartedly recommend Making the Moment!  Amber was wonderful, attentive, and personable.  She not only listened carefully to what we wanted but also took the time to get to know us. Amber, Anna, and the whole MTM team made us feel comfortable on a day when we were already excited and anxious.  They captured every special, intimate, and hilarious moment that occurred without being intrusive, and our wedding images and film truly encapsulate the emotion of the day in a way that will help us remember our wedding day and that feeling forever.

  • We used Making the Moment (and in particular, Amber!) to photograph our November wedding. From our first meeting with Amber, we knew that we had selected the right company (and photographer!) to photograph our wedding. Amber is absolutely incredible and such a fun person to work with. To be honest, we weren’t particularly excited about being photographed, but Amber changed all of that. Specifically, because we loved hanging out with Amber, she not only helped us have a great experience while being photographed, but (dude!) her very warm and hilarious personality drew us out of our shells and put us at ease in order to capture extremely natural and fantastic images. From our engagement session to our wedding day, Amber completely knocked it out of the park. What’s particularly unique about Making the Moment (other than their exceptional talent) is that they strive to capture your wedding day in a very real (but absolutely gorgeous) way. The final product isn’t just a bunch... Read more

  • From start to finish, the team at MTM was an absolute joy for us to work with. Our photographer, Sara, has such an artistic eye and captured our wedding with creativity and brilliance. She easily wrangled our 20-person wedding party and took the reigns so that we could all be present and enjoy the day. The images she captured are treasures. Anna and the videography team wove our love story together with beautiful imagery. They immortalized incredible moments from our wedding ceremony and reception, and I couldn't be happier with our fusion film. You'll be blown away by Making the Moment! They display professionalism, friendliness, positivity, vision and incredible talent!

  • What can I say that hasn't already been said about MTM? If you need pictures, get MTM! If you're having an Indian wedding, get MTM! They truly are the most organized, thorough and experienced group I was in touch with, especially when it came to indian weddings! We NEVER once had to worry about asking them/telling them what we needed... .and any requests/suggestions we had were so warmly discussed! We had Sara as our main photographer and she is just incredible! The entire team that was there made us feel so comfortable that we truly felt like we could be our (weird) selves around them. Our same day video was amazing... we can't wait for our preview. THANKS MTM!

  • Making the Moment was an amazing team to work with! Our photographer was Marcus and he instantly got our vision from the first time we met. He made the wedding planning process easy for us with his organization, quick responses, and creative ideas. Our whole wedding timeline depended on when pictures were going taking place throughout the day - Marcus instantly provided us a very accurate timeline when we requested it, which was 4 months out from the wedding (a lot of things can change within 4 months, but the timeline was spot on!). On the wedding day Marcus was a blast to work with. He was there from the beginning of the day until the very end which was impressive! He still had the same energy from when he first met us in the morning as he did when he was packing up at the end of the night. The whole day was filled with smiles and laughter ... mostly because of his cheesy jokes between shots :) We can't wait to see the finished product! We also had Jeanna for the Live Photoboot...

  • We decided before anything, that our photographer was going to be our biggest expense- it is the only thing we would have when our wedding day was all said and done. A coworker of mine had used making the moment for their wedding and I was amazed at their pictures! We got assigned Amber and the fit could not have been more perfect. She is sincere, enthusiastic, witty and just the sweetest person you will ever meet. By the day of our wedding, she didn’t seem like someone we hired, but like one of our beloved guests. Oh yea, and she is an uh-MAZING photographer. My husband and I kept saying “one picture. We just need one picture we both love.” I love every single one. She captured every moment perfectly! Making The Moment does exactly what their name says. Simply- THE BEST.

    Jess, thank you so so much for your kind words! They mean so much to us! We love how supported and comfortable you felt with Amber. She killed it on your wedding day and we’re so happy you love every image. Thank you for trusting us with your wedding day!

  • Marcus was our photographer and he was absolutely amazing! Right from the beginning he made us feel like we would be working with our best friend. My husband walked out of our first meeting with him and asked me if he can be in the wedding and I had to tell him no because he had to be our photographer! He adds a personal touch to everything he does and made us feel like we were the only people he was working with. He is organized, great attention to detail, and overall has such amazing passion for what he does, which makes him so amazing! When we got our photos we were simply in awe of how great they turned out. Making the Moment will be doing all our future photography needs from here on out. Not only is Marcus amazing... so is their team! Everyone we worked with or just talked to was awesome! Highly recommended!!

    Grace, thank you so much for your kind words! We love that not only did you love your images, but Marcus as well! He’s incredibly talented and always fun to be around. Obviously you all were an amazing fit for each other =) Thank you for trusting us with your wedding photography!

  • Making the Moment and our photographer, Marcus, were amazing! First and foremost, the photos were absolutely gorgeous and creative - not at all your typical cheesy wedding photos. They work really hard to make sure they get every shot (jumping on the dance floor and crouching around corners), while still managing to be very discrete and not distracting from the events. We could also tell how much care and detail went into each of the hundreds of photos in our final set. Marcus and MTM were also great to work with. They were extremely organized and helped us stay on track of what info they needed from us when. There were never any hidden costs, and never felt like they were just trying to sell us on more stuff. They also hosted a viewing party for us to see the photos for the first time at their offices. We thought it might be corny but it was actually a really special way to experience the photos for the first time, and a great way to see them on a much larger screen than we have at... Read more

    Taylor, both you and Firas are amazing people. We really do believe that great imagery comes with a great relationship. Thank you, so much, for allowing us to be a part of your day. I honestly felt like one of the fold, and it really did seem like we were hanging out more than capturing photographs :) I will never forget your wedding day, mainly because we spanned the spectrum from Playhouse Square elegance to Jordanian dancing, haha! That doesn’t happen all the time! I truly wish you two the very best. You deserve it. You’re an amazing couple together! #FirGood - Marcus

  • We had a wonderful experience with Sara and Making the Moment. She was super easy to work with, organized, and enthusiastic about our big day. We had a relatively tight timeline for pictures, and she was completely accommodating of all of our preferences. She was also super fun to hang out with all day! It was very obvious that she cares about and loves what she does, and that was reflected in our pictures. They turned out amazing and we truly couldn't be happier with them! Thank you again, Sara!

    Sarah thank you so much for your positive review! We're so glad you and Jared had such a great experience with us! Sara is awesome and we know she loved working with you two just as much as you loved working with her. Thank you for trusting our passionate team to serve you in this way!

  • WOW - words don't express how happy my husband and I are with Making the Moment! From booking them to engagement photo shoot, to wedding day and seeing our wedding day pictures, we couldn't be happier and more impressed by this bunch of MTM people. Vince was our photographer and captured every moment, was easy to work with, and made us feel at ease. Renee was great about keeping the communication constant with reminders, emails, and phone calls - I never felt out of the loop or like I was missing anything. The level at which they photograph, work with their clients, and truly make a connection with you is what sets them apart. Yes, you will pay more than the average photographer, but what you get is unmatched. Even with our wedding reception at The Arcade (where they've shot many weddings before), Vince created new photos that he hadn't done before so we had unique images. Hands down, the best decision we made for our wedding! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

  • Making the Moment & Marcus were the first vendors we booked before anything. From the second you walk into their office until the day you get to view your image premier, you feel like you are their only client. You laugh (a lot ), you cry (happy tears, ALOT) and you just enjoy your time spent with them. And I can't even begin to comment on the talent...I mean, I don't know if it's possible for anyone to be THAT skilled at their profession. But Marcus and the entire team are just that- super talented. Every time we look at our images, we re-live the best day of our lives all over again. That feeling in it of itself is priceless. Thank you to Marcus and the entire Making the Moment team for being hands-down the best, most first-class, innovative and talented group of people we hired for our wedding. Can't wait to work with you again!!

  • Hiring Making the Moment was the best decision we made. Planning a wedding from out of state can be a challenge so it was very important to have trustworthy and reliable vendors. Making the Moment goes above and beyond with their incredible ability to transcend that typical “vendor relationship”. From accommodating our facetime “interview” request to developing deep, personal connections and delivering the most STUNNING images – beyond anything I could have dreamed – they provided five-star service throughout. When you see the sign in their office that says “Come as Clients, Leave as Friends”, it’s no joke. They absolutely mean it. Sara, you are such a talented photographer and beautiful human being. Getting to know you and establishing a friendship over the 15 months leading up to our wedding made your presence during our weekend so seamless and wonderful. Jack and I, as well as our families and friends, felt so comfortable around you and the camera – an ea... Read more

    Kate, you’re the freaking best. Thank you so much for all of your kind words. I had so much fun that day with you, Jack, and your hilarious bridal party. It was such an honor to spend the day capturing the love you and Jack have for each other, while watching you two live your day to the fullest. I can’t wait to see you the next time you’re in Cleveland! #wutangforever #handsinyourpocketsjack #otterlove - Sara
