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!

Monique and Josh's E-Session in Germantown!

Holy Cow! This was one of the best Engagement sessions I've ever had. It was so nice to get out in the country on such a beautiful day with two of the nicest people you could meet. I loved Moniques idea of the bench in the pasture with all the cows, it's not everyday I get to shoot with cows as my background! Thanks Monique and Josh, It was just awesome working with you! Looking forward to the wedding! Click here to view the show full size.

Maria and Mike at Newport Aquarium!!

Maria and Mike got married back in August at Newport Aquarium! We were so excited to shoot at Newport on the levee since we had never been there for a wedding before! The day was gorgeous and having a reception in the aquarium just made everything so fun! After the aquarium closed we got to go down and do pictures with the couple and it made for some really fun photos! We used jellyfish, sharks, turtles, and tons of fish as backgrounds for their photos! Mike and Maria are such a fun couple and we had a blast being with them all day! We still talk about how fun the wedding was and laugh at some of the stories from the day!
Enjoy the photos!

Danielle and Curt!

Danielle is a friend of mine from high school so when she told me she wanted me to shoot her wedding I was extremely excited! Her family has been friends of mine for a long time and they are some of the nicest people you will ever meet! The wedding was beautiful and their were so many little details that made the day so special. As they walked out of the church all the guests threw little paper airplanes that Danielle had her students make, since Curt is in the air force! They had their reception at one of the prettiest places in the area, the Schuster Center! The band they had was awesome and their reception was so much fun. We still laugh at some of the creative and hilarious photoguestbook pictures from their reception.
Danielle and Curt, thank you so much for letting us spend the day with you! We had so much fun with you guys! You planned your wedding so well and everything was beautiful! We can't wait to make some canvas prints for you!

Amanda and Mike

Amanda and Mike got married back in July in Kettering, and their reception was at one of our favorite places, The Jewish Center! It was a fun day working with the two of them and their extremely lively wedding party! They were such a nice couple and we really enjoyed spending the day with them! Even though it rained we were still able to take them out for some great pictures! We even stopped at a really cool little bar my friends own, Harrigan's Tavern! Amanda and Mike are great together and we could see how happy they were to be with each other all day.
Enjoy the photos!
Amanda and Mike, thank you for having us with you all day! You two and your wedding party were a blast! We wish the best for the two of you and hope you enjoy your photos!

Adrianne and Ryan in Dayton

Adrianne and Ryan got married in Dayton just over a month ago. It was one of the hottest days of the summer, but since Adrianne and Ryan were one of the funnest couples, it offset that pretty well! Blake and I had so much fun with the two of them and their wedding party! They are such a fun couple who really loves each other and you can see that when they are together. We got the chance to shoot at some really cool places with them. Ryan's baseball team even showed up in their jerseys and held up bats for the couple to walk out under! The reception was a blast and the Wright Brothers even made a guestbook appearance!
Adrianne and Ryan, thank you so much for having us spend the day with you! You two were so much fun to work with and we enjoyed every minute of the day. You two are such a fun couple and we wish the best for both of you in your lives together!
