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!

Katie and Nathan's E-Session

Well it finally stopped raining long enough for me to at least shoot one E-Session, and I'm so glad it was Katie and Nathans! It was such a gloomy day right up until about an hour before the shoot then the heavens just parted and the sun began to shine and I wasn't working on the studio painting something so at that point it was ALL GOOD! What a great couple to go shoot with on such a wonderful day, I'm really looking forward to October! Katie let me know your favorite and I'll get the Save the Dates put together ASAP!

Monique and Josh in Germantown!

Monique and Josh got married in Germantown back in the beginning of April. When we first got into town we couldn't believe how much there was to work with! We knew it was going to be a great day with all the neat stuff and such a great couple! Monique and Josh are two of the nicest people we have had the pleasure of working with, and the same goes for everyone in the wedding party! They were a blast to work with all day and we had such a great time joking around with them. Its so nice to have a lively wedding party to work with all day! The wedding was in the church that Monique grew up in and they filled it up with all of their guests! Love was in the air during the ceremony and you could just tell how much these two love each other! The reception was so much fun with all the people they had there, it made for a really funny (and big) PhotoGuestbook! Thanks to everyone who helped make our job fun and easy that day!http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif
Monique and Josh, you two are one of the nicest couples we have worked with and we hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we enjoyed taking them. We had so much fun with the two of you and we feel honored to have been able to shoot a wedding for such a nice couple who love each other so much!

Ali and Ben in Defiance!

Ali and Ben are friends of Laurens that got married the week after she did! It was really cool shooting Laurens wedding then going to shoot a good friend of hers the very next week! We made the drive up to Defiance for their wedding and what a cool place it was to shoot! There were so many different things to work with we had to choose our favorites or else we would have needed a whole weekend to shoot on all of them! Ali and Ben were a fun couple to work with and we did some really neat stuff with them! The wedding party was a lot of fun to work with all day and we had a lot of fun with everyone! We still talk about some of the funny things that happened that day while shooting with everyone!
Ali and Ben, thank you both so much for having us come to spend your wedding day with you! You guys were a blast and we had so much fun with the two of you! We wish you guys nothing but the best in your lives together!

Lauren and Robert! Another 808 Family wedding!

So the 3rd 808 wedding in a year was on March 19 and it was a blast! Lauren really wanted a lot of pictures of just her and Robert (I can't imagine why!?) so she gave us a few hours to run around Dayton with just the two of them! We had so much fun with them and had a few surprises up our sleeve for them too! They are such a fun couple and all of us love being around The Shepherds! Hope you all enjoy the show we made of their images!
