Had an absolute blast taking engagement photos for Josh and Cari. We were able to get access to Warped Wing Brewery in Dayton, Ohio for the shoot. Warped Wing was able to produce a nice industrial feel that complements their taste and style. Josh and Cari will be married in June of 2016.
The city of Cincinnati did a wonderful job getting ready for the 2015 MLB All-Star Game. The city was decked out and bustling with activities. Between the mustache hunting, the Pepsi fan zone, and the game itself here are a few of my memories from the Weekend.
It was a nice Summer day so I decided to go and walk around Downtown. The All-Star game was a few weeks away and I wanted to check out the decor downtown and hunt down a few of the mustaches that are placed around the greater Cincinnati area. A majority of these images are taken around fountain square and the Aronoff center.
Loveland is a great town in the outskirts of Cincinnati. Cincinnati is a great city because it is surrounded by great towns that can make the big city seem small. Loveland is near where I live so I wanted to take some time to go out and capture some of its small town charm and vibrant historic Downtown. Loveland is also located on the Little Miami bike trail which is approxamently 75 miles long ( Bike trail).
Every Friday night that the Reds play at home, they have a fireworks display afterwards. I find that this fireworks display is one of the best you will see all year. Nothing satisfies like a Friday night at the ballpark with a great show afterwords. If you are unable to go to the game but want to enjoy the fireworks you can go to a multitude of different places to see them. One of my favorite spots, besides in the stadium, is the General James Taylor Park. The park is located in Newport and offers a straight on view of the fireworks. Get there early or you may have to walk a bit. Here are a few shots from the night.
While out on assignment I decided to snap off a few images for the blog. These pictures were taken at Smale Riverfront Park, Mt Adams and the Incline next to Prima Vista. I don’t speak Italian but I am going to assume Prima Vista has a translation of amazing view. There were also a few taken from the Roebling Bridge. If you havent been able to tell , that is my favorite view of Cincinnati. I hope you enjoy, these were fun to take.
O.K. so yes this is a cemetery, and No I didn’t run into any Ghost. Spring Grove might be one of my favorite places to walk around and take pictures. It is one of those places that really lets you escape the hustle and bustle of Cincinnati. Spring Grove is a level III accredited site, as awarded by the Morton Arboretum Register. Spring Grove is a historic cemetery with Revolutionary War soldiers, Civil War Generals, The Dexter Mausoleum and other notable individuals who are buried on the grounds. Spring Grove is truly a beautiful place to be. A lot of local wedding pictures and family portraits are taken on the grounds due to their always colorful floral arraignments which reflect color throughout the year. If you go to Spring Grove to just to get some exercise you may see local artist painting pictures of the stunning landscapes. Spring Grove is more than just a cemetery it is a quite place to loose yourself in your thoughts and soak up all the stunning colors of the season. Spring Grove does not require permits to take photographs at this time so I encourage you to check out Spring Grove if you haven’t already. Spring Grove Cemetery
This time of year I find myself spending more and more time at the zoo. Zoo Blooms are beginning to wrap up and that puts us on the door steps of zoo babies. The zoo is also a great place to take little ones. Children always seem to find tons of amusement looking at all of the different animals. The staff at the zoo is always very knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions you may have about their residents.
Here is a quick look at the flowers popping up at the Cincinnati Zoo. Absolutely a great time to take the family down to enjoy the animals and all of the brilliant colors. For more info check out Zoo Blooms at the Cincinnati Zoo.
Now that opening day (the greatest holiday in Cincinnati) has come and gone I thought it was time to post some shots of probably my favorite place to be in Cincinnati, Great American Ball Park. GABP is home to the Cincinnati Reds. The Reds were able to sweep the Pirates in their first series of the 2015 season. They accomplished this on three straight walk off hits to start a season which hasn’t been done in major League Baseball since the 75 Big Red machine. On the days leading up to opening day I went down to check out the statues that are located near the main entrance to the ballpark. The 6 statues located at GABP are of Joe Nuxhall, Ted Kluszewski, Frank Robinson, Ernie Lombardi, Johnny Bench and most recently Joe Morgan. I encourage everyone to go check out a Reds game and arrive early to check out the statues and the Reds Hall of Fame.
