Cleveland, Ohio is getting a new brand of wedding photography with the announcement that Clevelands Wedding Photography, Inc. is now officially the new owner of Cleveland Wedding Photography.
Clevelands, a division of the Cleveland Browns, was founded in 2015 by longtime Cleveland-based photographer and wedding photographer Mark P. Pendergast.
The company has since expanded to serve wedding venues in all 50 states and now operates in nearly every city in the U.S.C.
Pendergasts family is also the owner of the iconic Cleveland Browns logo.
The announcement came shortly after C.P.W. announced that it had signed a lease with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the naming rights of the Browns stadium.
Clyde and Pendergs are now looking to expand beyond Cleveland to expand their reach in other parts of the country.
They plan to open a photography studio in San Francisco in the near future.
For now, the new Cleveland brand will remain a private company, which is a step up from the company’s original mission statement: “We are the world’s premier wedding photography company.
We create wedding images for our clients.
We take photographs for clients.
But most importantly, we help them create beautiful, lasting memories for themselves and their loved ones.”
In addition to the Cleveland team, C.W.’s roster includes photographers for the Cleveland Indians, Miami Dolphins, Chicago Cubs, Miami Marlins, New York Mets, Los Angeles Dodgers, Washington Capitals, Atlanta Braves, Seattle Mariners, Los Vegas Clippers, Detroit Lions, Dallas Cowboys, San Diego Padres, Chicago Blackhawks, New Orleans Saints, Los Rams, New England Patriots, Denver Broncos, Philadelphia Eagles, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Philadelphia 76ers, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Cincinnati Bengals, New Cleveland Bengals, Kansas City Chiefs, Tennessee Titans, Oakland Raiders, Philadelphia Titans, Arizona Cardinals, Tennessee Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars, Cleveland Browns and Miami Dolphins.
