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!

Alicia and Greg

Alicia and Greg got married in Columbus near Gahanna at the church we shot Ruth and Mikes wedding at just four weeks earlier! Alica and Greg are such a fun couple they were up for anything and we so laid back. For me the best part of the day was whooting them with their wedding party at the garden area outside the reception. I was a hoot watching them set up the special family tradition shot with Greg and his siblings! I almost had to have Blake shoot it cause I was laughing so hard! You could tell they have a certain bond with each one of them. My best shots of the day were Alicia and Greg by themselves after the ceremony. We left the wedding party on the bus and dashed down to the waterfall for some intimate portraits of them just being cute together! Thanks Alicia and Greg, your wedding was spectacular!

Susan and Jose's Wedding

Kelly and Josh

This is Kelly and Josh, they are getting married in January. Josh is old friend of ours from a really great reception hall we sometime have weddings at, Coopers Farm. He is their resident DJ and that's where they are having their reception at as well. I met them out at Cox Arboretum to do their engagement session and we did some fun fall shots. The lighting was just gorgeous that day. Enjoy the pictures and we can't wait for the wedding, it's going to be so much fun! ~Nick

Friends of the studio Kate, Kirk and Will Andrea passed our name along to their friends Lindsey and Sam and their new son Baer. Baer is only about 7 weeks old and his parents couldn't be more excited to have their early Chistmas present! Baer even posed for some shots with their dog, how adorable! Thanks for being such a good subject Baer, I hope to see more of you soon! Click here to see the show full size. -Nick

Alyssa and Geoff

Alyssa and Geoff had such a beautiful day for a wedding, especially that it was a November wedding! Alyssa looked stunning in her gown, one of the most unique looking dresses we have had in a while. The colors and the flowers just begged to be photographed so we headed down to one of my favorite little spots with the whole wedding party prior to the wedding. I just love when the couple gets to see eachother before the wedding, it gives them such a great opportunity to spend some quality time together and with their friends! We also wouldn't have been able to shoot outside, it got dark before the wedding even started. But that gave us perfect darkness for the sparkler shots of them running out to their limo! The evening was capped off with a very colorful and perfectly decorated reception at the Webster St Market. Thanks Alyssa and Geoff! It was such a pleasure working with you and your families!

Adam Grant

Adam is the Son of two of my best friends Katie and Aaron. I shot their wedding a year ago in July and last Christmas one of the greatest gifts we all got was the news there was going to be one more in our group of friends! He is just so adorable and he's only a few months old and already knows how to dress in style! Good job Adam! Click here to see the show full size. -Nick

Amy and Eric are wedding clients of mine from 2005. They will be celebrating their 5th anniversary in May and their family has come a long way since then. It's doubled in size with the addition of Anna and Ella, their beautiful daughters. I hadn't seen them in years and never met the girls until last week when we did their family portraits and I already can't wait to see them again, great job ladies!!

Amaya is turning 1!

Beautiful Amaya is getting ready to turn one already. I can't believe its almost here, this year has flown by so quickly. Josh, Tami and Amaya came into the studio this week for her pictures. What an awesome time it was to spend with the three of them, they are friends of mine from church. Amaya was such a joy to photograph and when she smiled (which she did constantly) it would just light up the studio. Her little laugh and giggle just made my day, I know they'll do the same for you! ~Lauren
