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!

Caitlin and Todd in Cleveland!

This was our second Cleveland wedding of the year and I have to say it ROCKED!  Ok a bit cliche' but it was at the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame! Caitlin and Todd met me though a past client and believe me they are going to get  a huge thank you note from me!  We had a great E-Session in the winter out near their home and I've been looking forward to Cleveland iwth them ever since. 

how many brides actually ask you to shoot their dress outside on a tree?  One!  That's Caitlin, She was up for having a little something different and that's cool with us!  Loved this one of her out in her parents back yard, which was one of the nicest back yards I'd ever seen.  Glad we we able to shoot there!

We hit the beach after the wedding, the Clifton Club was somewhere Caitlin's family had spent lots of family memories.  Thanks a million for having Blake and I, We felt like one of the family and we had the best time with you all!  Caitlin and Todd you guys  were great!  Click here to view all the images.  Click here with your iPhone, iPad or smartphone to download their custom app, and view their show above or on YouTube here.

The Yount Family

I did Jackie and Jenny's Senior portraits  when they graduated a few years back and we had the awesome opportunity to shoot Jackie's wedding in July.  It was a bit hot, but it was an awesome wedding!  We did a portrait sitting with the whole family while they were all in town  for the wedding out at their parents new house in Beavercreek and had a blast.  Which one for the mantle?? -Nick

Kelli and Scott's E-Session in Oakley

What a great couple!  Kelly and Scott met just like My wife and I and we even go to the same church in Oakley.  So I just had to stop in and shoot a few with them.  I guess someone upstairs also ordered up an AWESOME end of summer sunset for us too.  Thanks Guys!  Have fun a the wedding next weekend! -Nick

Karen and B.A. in Dayton

This couple is just happy as can be together, I loved every minute of working with them!!  Karen and B.A. are just as nice as they come, they knew what they wanted was to have a great time and enjoy themselves- but also get great images.  We had several hours prior to the ceremony to give them some of our best work and I'm sooo happy with what we did!  Adding just a couple spots here and there made such a difference in the story we were able to tell with them.  Their wedding party was an absolute riot and when Karen and B.A. weren't making each other laugh the Groomsmen and Bridesmaids were right there making gawking noises and jokes, what a great combo! 

This was my favorite shot from the ceremony.  They had each written their own vows and read them to eachother.  B.A.'s words had me a bit choked up and I'm sure they meant the world to Karen - So glad I could be there to be a part of the begining of such a beautiful marriage.  Thank you for having Blake and I spend such an amazing day with you and your families!  It meant so much to us that you allowed us to work so hard for you, and cared so much about the work we did together.  Hope to see you you both again soon! -Nick
