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 get married in Dayton

This was my favorite one of Katie! What an awesome couple, I knew from the moment Katie and I first talked on the phone about her wedding what a great time I was going to have with them! Plus we had a hilarious wedding party, and they let me do it all with them so for me it really doesn't get any better! One weird coincedence is Katie and I have the same last name, were not related, but her family took us into their home and took great care of us all day long and really made Marci and I feel like we were just one of the family. Here's the link to all the images, and you can http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifview the show on YouTube here. Love the pics in the leaves Katie and Nathan, and thanks a million for having us as part of your wedding we loved working with you and your families! - Nick

Christa and Ryan are married!

Christa and Ryan are good friends of my wife and I. Christa grew up with my wife and they have stayed best friends over all these years. I was so excited when they got engaged and even more excited when they told me they wanted me to shoot their wedding! I knew it was going to be such a fun day with the two of them. They saw each other for the first time right out in their backyard. The shots of them sitting in their backyard are my absolute favorites from the day. After we drove around Lebanon shooting for a while, we met the wedding party and shot some more! Their ceremony was great, you could see the excitement on both of their faces the whole time. Their reception was a blast and everyone enjoyed the PhotoGuestbook! Their wedding day couldn't have been more perfect, thanks to everyone who helped make everything so great for them!
Hope you all enjoy the photos!
Christa and Ryan, you guys are so great and I want to thank you for letting me shoot your wedding. It means the world to me that you guys trusted me to come be such a big part of your wedding day.

Heather and Todd at the Crystal Room!

What an awesome wedding! Heather and Todd got engaged at the Eiffel tower, no not the one at Kings Island, the one in Paris! Thanks Todd for making all us guys look bad when it comes to our proposal stories. :) It was a great theme to bring into the wedding, so we actually ran with it when we did their Save the Dates, and even the cake was topped with an Eiffel tower. This was a special wedding for me, great friends of mine ( and past 808 Couple) Elisha and Dusty were the ones who reccommended me and they were also in the wedding. It was awesome to see them again and meet their son, who's also my friend now! I really make me happy to see Heather and Todd together, they are both just the nicest people you could ever meet and that sure was evident when you met their wedding party each one of them were just like Heather and Todd, we loved every minute of working with them. This one was a favortie of mine, Heather and Todd really are as cool as they look here!

Click here to see the show on YouTube or click here to view all the photos. Thanks Heather and Todd! I can't tell you how much we enjoyed working with you and your families, you both deserve every bit of happiness you bring each other, your marriage will surely be a source of inspiration for family and friends. - Nick

Brittany and Andrew in the rain and shine and then more rain...

Brittany and Andrew got married at Polen Farm in September. The day was kind of rainy and dull, but the wedding party was the exact opposite, so we went and shot outside anyway! The rain cleared up for a little bit and they were able to have the wedding outside under the gazebo at Polen. The day was so much fun and Brittany's dress was perfect for our new vintage look! The reception was a blast and everyone was really into the PhotoGuestbook! One of the bridesmaids even sang a Tina Turner song and nearly blew the roof off the barn with her voice! It was a fun group to work with and we hope they all had as much fun as we did! We had a blast shooting with everyone even with the rain and hope you all enjoy the photos!

Brittany and Andrew, thank you so much for having us come out and shoot your wedding! You guys are such a great couple and we had a lot of fun with the two of you and your wedding party! Brittany, Thank you so much for trusting me, I know you knew it would all be worth shooting in a little rain! Hope you guys have a great start to your new lives together!
