Jessica & Michael

Together, we are Magnolia Lake Photography.

Our photography represents perserverance and love.

Our name stands for the beauty we see in life.

We want you to see what we do.


It was fate. Or the stars aligning. Or just being at the right place at the right time. We met back in 2010 at a sports bar through mutual friends. After a few months of talking and the best first date, it was pretty much a done deal. (Seriously, everyone should take a date to a comedy club!) Fast forward nearly a decade and here was are. Just a couple of married BFFs with way too many inside jokes, who love to quote movies and tv shows every chance they get and who are building a life doing the things they love.


Name: Jessica

From: Eastlake, OH - a small city by the lake about 20 min from Cleveland

Favorite number: 12. It's my lucky number.

Favorite ocean: Atlantic. I love the beaches on the East Coast. You can't always see your toes in the water, but it's still beautiful. I did get engaged in Hawaii, so I guess the Pacific ocean is pretty special too! 

Describe yourself in 3 words: Passionate, Hard working, Curious.

Favorite animals - pet & wild: Dog & too many to choose. If its breathing, its probably my favorite.

Old school rap or today's rap: Old-er School. I also love some 2000's hip hop! 

Favorite breakfast: Biscuits and gravy. And an iced mocha.

If you could live anywhere in the world: Hawaii or Costa Rica. It would be cool to live near the rainforest.

Favorite season: Late Summer. Where it's still warm but the leaves are just starting to turn.

Introvert or Extrovert: introvert

Name: Michael

From: Willoughby, OH -  also a small city by the lake about 20 min from Cleveland

Favorite number: 42. It's the answer of all things.

Favorite ocean: I like both the Atlantic and Pacific. Atlantic because I have so many memories there. Pacific because I proposed in Hawaii.

Describe yourself in 3 words: Easy going, Passionate, Adventurous

Favorite animals - pet & wild: Dog & Lion

Old school rap or today's rap: Old School - far superior, plus Tupac is still kickin'.

Favorite breakfast: An omlette with bacon on the side, fresh fruit and some OJ. 

If you could live anywhere in the world: Hawaii. Maui to be specific. 

Favorite season: Fall. Living in Ohio, there is the possibility to see all seasons in one! 

Introvert or Extrovert: EXTROVERT!
