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!

Allison and Dave in Beavercreek

This one was my favortie Infrared image for the day, Allison and Dave picked a great spot to get married. Beavercreek Golf Club has some very beautiful holes that just beg to be photographed! When I met Allison (we met thought a past bride, like the vast majority of my customers) I knew she and Dave were going to be a great couple to work with. She's always got a smile on her face and you just know her and Dave are the life of the party wherever they go. We had a killer time with them and their wedding party, what a funny group! I loved working with everyone, they had me laughing all day! Thanks Allison and Dave you were awesome to work with and you sure can throw a party!

Niki and Kenny

Niki and Kenny got married back in June in Dayton and what a day we had with them! The groomsman were hilarious and wanted to make Niki and Kenny's wedding really..special. It was a great group to work with all day and we have so many stories that we took away from the day. We got to shoot at some of our favorite places downtown before the wedding with the two of them which was great! The reception was a lot of fun with the unpredictable wedding party. They kept us on our toes all day and all night with different ideas they had for fun photos! Thanks to everyone who made the day so great and we hope you all enjoy the photos!
Niki and Kenny, thank you so much for having us photograph you and your family and friends all day. We appreciate you guys giving us so much time! We can tell by looking at you two that you will have an amazing life together!

Shannon and Dapo in Atlanta

This one is my favorite of Shannon, just a quick "have a seat right here in the nice light" pic the pose was all her and she looks stunning!

I think this one just summed up the whole day for me, Fitting that it was at the end of the night. I thought this one was just awesome, and I thought the whole weekend was too. I got to go down to Atlanta to shoot my wife's closest friends getting married and it was just what I was looking for. I shot this one on my own so I was prepared to work hard but also challenge myself with my composition and I have to say I loved every minute of it. Shannon and Dapo are so right for each other, and you could really tell that when he lifted his pant leg to reveal his green argyle socks and Shannon let out a big laugh! I had so much fun we even carried it over into the next day when we met them at their hotel and shot a few more that will be just perfect additions to their album. Thanks Shannon and Dapo! Heather, Alex and I had a fantastic time! Click here to see all the images and Be sure to check out Shannon and Dapo's movie below or on Youtube!

Kristi and Justin!

Kristi and Justin got married last month in Springboro and we had a blast with them! Kristi is the sister of one of our favorite couples, Ashley and Levi! It was so great to see all the family again and to work with such nice people for a second time! We had so much fun working with and catching up with everyone! The weather was beautiful (and a little warm!) so we got to do some really cool stuff in the downtown area before the wedding. Then we took the golf carts out to shoot on the course after! They are such a great couple and you can tell by looking at them that they love each other and are going to have a blast in their lives together. Thanks to everyone for making it such a fun day and for making our jobs so easy!
Kristi and Justin, thank you both so much for having us come spend your wedding day with you and your awesome family. We had so much fun with everyone and we hope you enjoy your photos!
