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!

Erica and Gerard at the Boonshoft Museum!

 This was such a  fun day for me and Marci!  Erica altered her mom's wedding dress so that she could wear it! What a beautiful tribute to her mom! Erica and Gerard were a lot of fun! We went to a couple of great spots and then to Jimmy's Ladder 11 bar by UD for a few drinks and some silly pics.  The reception was at the Boonshoft Children's Museum, how cool. It was the perfect place since there were a ton of kids on the guest list! All the guests were treated to a show in the Space Theater, it sure was a fun night for everyone! We had a great time working with you Erica and Gerard!  Click here to view all the images and Click here to see the show on YouTube or watch it below. Thanks! - Sandra

Lisa and Phil in Dayton

Love this one!  I could see that Lisa is very close to her family.  Mom was with us getting ready and Her and Dad were right next to eachother the whole time before the ceremony.  So nice to see that these days.  I'm sure they like her for the same reasons we do, she's just as nice as they come - what a sweetie!

Lisa and Phil had their ceremony in Beavercreek before heading to NCR Country Club for their reception.
I love NCR especially this time of year, the lighting is great - and the service is excellent.  Thanks to a little bit of extra time after the ceremony we were able to hit up a few fun spots for some groups after the wedding - glad we had that time too, it was windy and we needed it.  I think one of my favorite moments was the stop out Blind Bills in the OD, we got a speech from a rather hairy man that wasn't a part of the wedding party but was obviously in the spirit like wedding party was. Blake and I really enjoyed shooting with everyone - The wedding party was a riot, they had us laughing all day long.  If you have an iPhone, iPad, or smartphone click this link from it to download Lisa and Phil's custom app, or view the show below or on YouTube here & Click here to view all the images.   Thanks for having us!  We had a great time! -Nick

Whitney and Nathan's wedding


I LOVED this wedding!!  I don't know if I've had more fun at a wedding than we had with Whitney and Nathan.  I was so impressed by them when we first met.  Not only could I tell they were just the kind of couple we love working with but they genuinely cared about their wedding and making sure their friends and family enjoyed it as much as they did.  I can't even count the amount of locations we hit with them - every time I said lets do this or lets do one more over here they both said SURE!  Even when it was a couple minutes till we were supposed to be at the reception they wanted to go to one more place that was the complete opposite direction of Webster St Market.  How cool is that!?  Well there is a huge payoff for them in amazing images- nearly 1000 of them and everyone one is as good as the next.  This is exactly what happens when a couple wants us to do our thing and do it well - for them.  Thank you, thank you, thank you Whitney and Nathan!  I am so happy that we were there with you and I will always remember how much fun we had.  I can't wait to work on your album, it will be in your hands and at the studio on my coffee table very soon.  Come on by and see it!

Leighann and Tyler's wedding

 What a cool wedding!  We were looking forward to this one for a long time.  Leighann and Tyler want to do a lot of photos and gave us plenty of time, nearly 5 hours, to shoot with them so that's exactly what we did.  We ran all over town to all the best spots and a couple new ones we had up our sleeves.  Leighann was looking for someone to capture lots of special moments throughout the day and it was great to hear that.  I dound myself watching and listening a bit more than usual.  She also let us know of a few key things that she wanted photos of and while most of them are things we do all the time there were quite a few that opened my eyes to a few new ideas.  What a fantastic body of work,  I just loved them and I can't wait to show them off to everyone that comes by the studio, hope you love them as much as me.

Thanks Leighann and Tyler we had a blast with you and your families!  Can't tell you how much I love the images.  Click this link with you iPhone, iPad or Smartphone to download their custom app, Click here or scroll down to watch their show on YouTube and Click here to view all the images- Nick
