Serena and Marc

It is hard not to have fun in Athens, Ohio, throw in a wedding and it becomes Epic. Serena and Marc are two peas in a pod and both bleed Green. The wedding from start to finish was them. The Ceremony was beautifully officiated by one of their great friends, the reception was perfectly done by the crew at Athens Uncorked. Just like any fun event in Athens Ohio it was topped off with a modified version of a pub crawl. Serena and Marc I wish you two all the Happiness in the world and Maybe just Maybe if you are lucky the Browns will make you happy at some point in your future.

Michelle and Jimmy

A couple of weeks ago I was very fortunate to be the photographer for their lovely wedding. The ceremony was nicely done at Hope church in Dayton and then the reception was at Carillon Park in the transportation building. Michelle and Jimmy are a great couple and you can tell they are absolutely into each other. The atmosphere was fun and playful just as was evident during their cake cutting ceremony. I wish them years and years of happiness.

Senior Pictures out at the River

My session with this Senior was an a real blast, even if it did take two weeks to complete. Gotta love Cincinnati storms in the spring. Needless to say a down power line and hail didn’t derail our attempt to capture the spirit of this young lady. We started off shooting at International Friendship Park. After some time checking out the large Mirror sculpture and curved concrete benches, and a few weeks, we headed to Smale park. Smale Park is a great place to visit and an even better place to shoot portraits, especially later in the evening. She is active in her HS color guard and plays the cello so we made sure to utilize these props to accent who she is in 2016. I am grateful they allowed me to share in this special moment in their lives and want to wish her the best of luck in her senior year.

Family Portrait with Beautiful Twins

Working with twin babies was a real pleasure and something I look forward to doing again in the future. The whole family was very photogenic and easy to work with. I really enjoyed playing with the mirror. A real joy watching the kids try to figure out who was staring back at them. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I did taking them.

Eden Park Wedding

I had the privilege to shoot this wedding with Bryn Weller. The wedding took place at Ault Park, which is an absolutely stunning location. The weather behaved well enough to get most of the pictures done before hand and during the ceremony before the skies opened up. The group then moved onto Washington Park for more pictures before heading into the reception.

Josh and Cari Engagement Photos taken at Warped Wing Brewery Dayton, Ohio

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.

Loveland

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).
