Hi! My name is Juli, Julianna, Jules, Juju, I have a lot of nicknames. Take your pick. I’m the owner of Julianna Arendash Photography, I’m a modern, lifestyle photographer based in Cleveland. I have a pretty cool studio at Lake Affect Studios right down the street from the Flea headquarters. I am super excited to be photographing the Flea this season! You may call me a Cleveland Flea super fan (so when I say excited, I’m actually screaming like a little school girl). I’ve been following and going to the flea for a couple years now, trying to get everyone I know to come and experience this cool pop-up market. I love that the Cleveland Flea offers small business owners a platform to display their items, but mostly importantly you get to see the face behind each brand, the mother, the couple, the dog lover selling their handmade items. I love meeting vendors who are passionate about the craft and brand they produce. Also, I’m a low-key foodie so all those food trucks in one place is dope (can I say dope here, is that appropriate? lol).
Other than photography, I have a lot of hobbies and interest. I love to partake in alcoholic beverages, but really who isn’t. I’m pretty well versed in the world of craft beer and working my way through the wine world. I’m an adventurous foodie, I love trying food from different cultures and good old America heart-attack food. I love to make crafts, I’m always finding a new DIY I want to try out. I’m a huge fan of art, I love making frequent visits to the Cleveland Art Museum and making my own paintings. I always love meeting new people and learning about new things.
My partner in crime and my right-hand man is Jon. He is my second shooter and assistant and super excited to be photographing the flea with me! I met Jon in the 7th grade when we sat across from each other in English class. Apparently, Jon thought it wasn't possible a girl like me would want to talk to him, and he didn't realize I liked him till college and the rest is history. We have a cat together; her name is Burger and she is the light of our life. If you want pics, we got pics and lots of them. We are huge animal lovers, were going to be looking for the best doggos at the flea (bonus points if there are cats). So please bring us your furry friends and find us!
Jon's hobbies include video games, dungeons and dragons (he’s a DM) and woodwork along with photography. Jon enjoys photographing nature and landscapes, and Burger. Jon is super excited for all the food and the thrift finds. We love thrift shopping together, we always end up buying chairs for some reason though. We’re huge nerds and you can often find us at Side Quest or 16 bit or at home playing video games together. All and all we are pretty cool kids.
