Hi All! Just wanted to let you know I am doing FREE sessions for Military families through Christmas. If you know someone out there that has a spouse that is deployed and wants photos of theirself with their kids or just pics of the kids I want to shoot them! Not only will I be doing the session free but I'll also be making a show of the images (if they want me to ) to share with them overseas. Holidays are an even tougher time four our service Men and Women and I would love to give them amazing art of their family to make their holiday a little brighter. Spread the word and tell them to call me asap, I'll take good care of them, but then again you already knew that right!

Thanks Friends!

Jessie and John's PhotoGuestbook

Jessie and John were married at Cooper's farm on August 29th and we were lucky enough to be there to do a PhotoGuestbook for them.

Alexis and Patrick

You know I usually get to meet my couples before I even book their wedding, I want them to get to know who I am as a person and I get to know who they are as a couple, but I didn't get to meet Alexis and Patrick until the tuesday before their wedding. But when we met in person after talking for months on the phone it was almost like we were a few old pals out for a little tuesday afternoon shoot. And when the wedding rolled around the following Saturday I was just as excited to shoot for them as I was my own friends. They had everything expertly planned and everything just went perfect just like the weather. The lighting was perfect as we all sat down for a classic ceremony under the giant oak trees in the grass at the Patterson Homestead, and It was a very emotional ceremony full of family and glad tidings for such a loved couple. You knew they were out to party as soon as they arrived to the Taj Ma Garaj in Dayton and picked up your hotwheels place card next to the Chicago cubs tin. It certainly was a nite you just won't forget with such a cute couple and two wonderful families. Best of luck Alexis and Patrick we hope to see you soon!

Will at the park!

Will's Mom and I have been friends for years, well I guess I've been friends with her whole family for years! I had the pleasure of shooting her wedding over two years ago and just about nine months later I had the monthly assignment to photograph Will for his first year. That was something I was so humbled to be a part of, I was so proud to get to photograph the first year of this amazing family and a few weeks back I got to spend a quiet morning at the park with the three of them. It's little shoots like this that make my day! Click here to see the show full size and leave your comments below. -Nick

Susan and Jose's E-Session

What s super fun couple! Susan and Jose met me out at a little park in Beacercreek for some pics with a '48 ford coupe. It was all for a little theme on the invite, but everyone will get to see that soon! We also got to stop by their home for some family shots in the grass, I love the black and white one! Their wedding is this November and I can't wait! -Nick

Congrats Anna and TJ!!

We had such an amazing time at Anna and TJ's wedding on August 22. Anna looked so beautiful! We also had the most prefect weather that day. It was cloudy for the pictures before which was awesome and allowed us to shoot anywhere we wanted to. The rain came during the ceremony and was gone by the time it was over. The beautiful day continued after that with going to the Cannery downtown for more pictures and then to this really cool graffiti wall around the corner. What a great opportunity for us to take some really unique pictures. Thanks to Anna and TJ for letting us be a part of their special day! It is so neat to see the love you share for each other come alive in the pictures. To see the rest of the pictures go to the "purchase prints" tab on the left side of the website, click purchase prints again on the next page. Then click Anna and TJ on the page after that. ~Lauren
