Juli Arendash

| Flea Event Photographer |

Juli takes the most photos for us at any of our Cleveland Flea events. She’s the head of our #DogsofTheFlea account and her specific way of capturing our events mirrors her interest in people in their natural element, truly loving on themselves (and their donut, pierogi, vintage score and city). She’s also an accomplished boudoir photographer.
