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!

Ashley and Edith

I was fortunate enough to shoot Ashley's wedding a few years back.  Like most of our couples she and her Mom Edith became friends of mine.  They are just the nicest people you could ever meet!  Ashley just got accepted to Vet school out in California (which is a HUGE accomplishment, Vet school is really hard to get into!)  so proir to her moving out there we met up with Mom for a little Mother/Daughter session.  These sessions are one of the best things about my business, I love to see past clients, catch up with them and be a part of additional milestones throughout their lives! It's the best!! AWESOME to see you ladies again, looking forward to doing it all over again!  -Nick

Love this one!

Harrison and His Parents

I'd like to officially welcome Harrison to our family here at 808!  His Parents Mary and Matt got married last October and we had the pleasure of becoming friends with them back then and we were honored to be able to shoot their first family photos at their home.  Harrison is already a big OSU fan too so he'll fit right in!  Thanks Mary and Matt you're already such wonderful parents!  He is adorable! -Nick

Jackie and TJ in Dayton

 Jackie and TJ got married up in Dayton a few weeks ago and we had such a great time! We started out the day at the Dayton Marriot and did some great shots of TJ and the guys before heading up to shoot Jackie getting ready. The ceremony was beautiful and there was a lot of emotion going on, which shows in the photos! Some of our favorite shots are of Jackie, TJ and their parents getting emotional during the ceremony. After the ceremony we headed out to the Dayton Art Institute to do some shots of the new couple and the wedding party.  After one last stop at a really cool blue wall it was off to the reception! Everyone had a blast with the PhotoGuestbook including us!  This group came up with some great stuff! It turned out to be a really great night and we hope everyone enjoys the photos as much as we enjoyed taking them!

Colleen and Tyler's wedding in Columbus

I love these two!   Colleen's friend Jill passed our name along to her last year, about 3 years after she got married, Thanks Jill!  I love it when a great bride turns into another great bride!  Colleen and Tyler are just as nice as they come.  I really understand why they love each other so much they just fit toether like a puzzle.  So not only was I just looking forward to working with Colleen and Tyler but I was so excited to shoot in the short north area where their wedding was in Columbus.  I've had lots of sessions over the years there but very few weddings and we didn't have much time but we had plenty to work with and an amazing couple to shoot so everything tuned out perfect! The best part of the day was sneaking out of the reception with them to shoot a few on top of the bar across the street where they had their first date under the skyline of downtown Columbus!  Great images guys, thanks a million for having us we loved working with you!  -Nick
