Merri is a Cleveland-based destination wedding and lifestyle photographer who captures the most beautiful moments of her client's lives. Her style is effortless, genuine, joyful, and timeless. Weddings are her favorite to photograph because of her memorable wedding night, forever preserved through the photographs taken by her photographer.
When not behind the lens, Merri dedicates her time to traveling, volunteering in her community, and making core memories with her family. In addition, she enjoys sipping hot coffee with cream throughout the day, indulging in her passion for gardening, hiking in state parks, and booking spontaneous flights to California, her home away from home.
The most crucial aspect of Merri's photography is showing up for her clients when it counts, capturing their big moments, the stolen glances, and every little thing that tells their unique story. She enjoys laughing hard, telling a few inappropriate jokes, and cheering her clients on throughout their special day. By the night's end, she becomes her clients' best friend, making them feel like royalty.

Merri’s photography skills are phenomenal; the work in her galleries speaks for itself. What is not easily observed from the gorgeous end results is the ‘challenge accepted’ background work that she does that result in the beautiful pictures. Her passion to help her clients achieve their vision is unmatched.
"Her passion to help
"Our engagement and wedding photos were beautiful, and Merri was such a pleasure to work with! She stayed in frequent contact with us, and was very accommodating to requests and last minute changes. Neither my husband or I are very comfortable in front of a camera, but you wouldn't be able to tell from our photos! Our families absolutely adored Merri, and consider her part to be part of our family now, too! I would strongly recommend C&B Photography."

"...consider her part
After experiencing an accident in 2008 that altered her life's course and impacted her ability to remember the beautiful things in it, the owner of Clover and Bloom Photography discovered that photography was no longer just a hobby, but a crucial necessity.
Though she doesn't believe everyone will experience memory loss like she did, she does believe that when our beloved grandparents have gone home to rest, the last dance has been danced, and the final light has been extinguished, all that will be left are the photographs of that day.
She firmly believes that every life is worth remembering, and she is passionate about capturing the beauty of each moment for her clients to cherish and share for generations to come.
