Who is behind

Éclairer Event Photography is the partnership between Milwaukee area NGO Hope Without Borders‘ on-location photographer Josiah Parve and Fine Art Photographer Cassandra Forbes. Éclairer Event Photography runs the gambit from Candid to Classic to High Fashion, offering multiple editing styles based on the preference of the client. We look at ourselves as story tellers and keep this focus in mind when we capture each client’s request. It is important for us to make our clients feel comfortable in front of the camera and not have to worry about whether or not they will look their best in the final photographs. We will help with posing, styling, and brainstorming.

Cassandra Forbes


Since 2010 Cassandra has run her own photography and retouching business, Gilded Lens Photography. After a few years of juggling both her personal projects and client orders, she knew she needed a partner so that her wedding clients would receive the most comprehensive coverage of their day. In 2016 she and Josiah teamed up for their first wedding and knocked it out of the park.

I started taking pictures all the way back in 2004; ever since then I fell in love with capturing the moment. I have been blessed to be able to go to Africa yearly with the NGO Hope Without Borders. These forever endearing experiences fined my skill to capture emotion. My favorite photos have been when capturing people in their moment being their genuine self expressing their genuine feelings. There is nothing more satisfying to me than seeing a client happy with results and satisfaction that they do indeed look good without having to pose. Cassandra and I go way back and I love shooting with her—with her fine art and attention to detail style, I strongly feel there isn’t anything the two of us can’t capture. Working with her is a breeze and naturally our clients feel that and through our partnership we bring out the best of our clients as our clients also bring out the best in us.
