Christy & Nick at Ault Park

Christy and Nick are such a cute couple and their February wedding is coming up soon! They braved the cold (it was 20 degrees out!) and we photographed all around Ault Park. Go figure, but we had the place to ourselves. Enjoying their walk in the park, Christy and Nick even did some playing in the snow with a snowball fight....I think Christy won ;)
They got to warm themselves up with a glass of wine at one of their favorite little wine shops. Certainly a good way to warm things up! We are looking forward to their wedding, which will be the next wedding we post on the blog. See you soon!

Heidi & Matthew at University of Dayton

Even though its chilly outside this time of year, there are still opportunities for outdoor photographs. Heidi and Matthew ventured out into the cold to do their engagement session. If nothing else, the cold temps give you a great excuse to cuddle together!
We had a fun time photographing around the University of Dayton and Courthouse Square. Tying in other Dayton landmarks, their wedding later this year will be at the Racquet Club. We are looking forward to their event....and the warmer weather ;)

Imaging USA!

We will be out of the studio now through Tuesday, January 18th, while we attend our national convention in San Antonio.

Each year the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) holds its annual convention and tens of thousands of photographers from all over the world attend. Even though we aren't speaking this year, you can find us in seminars, the gigantic trade show or in the print exhibit.

The studio will reopen on Wednesday, January 19th with normal business hours. Thank you for your understanding.

Judy & Anthony at Marriott River Center

Judy and Anthony are such a sweet couple. You can't help but fall in love with them when you see them together. Judy's smile can light up a room and it gets even brighter when she is with Anthony.

Their 1.1.11 wedding was a wonderful way to start the year. Their wedding ceremony was very touching and included many of the people that are very dear to their hearts. Their ceremony also included some firsts for us. Before Judy made her way down the isle, a ballerina danced down the isle to a beautiful song making for one amazing entrance.

We had a wonderful time with all of their friends and family. The wedding party had us laughing all day, and I think the girls even forgave us for doing some of the photos outside ;) Even though they had a big guest list, the wedding still felt very intimate with all the very close relationships that Judy and Anthony have nurtured over the years. It was obvious that there is a lot of love around the two!

Congratulations to the newlyweds, who are now enjoying the sandy beaches of Florida. Feel free to leave messages for them below in 'Comments.' You can also see and tag more images on the Studio's Facebook page. Congrats!

We'll have their slide show posted later this weekend. Stay tuned!

We've worked with a lot of vendors over the years, and this weekend we met two great guys who routinely went above and beyond the call of duty.
Marriott River Center...Gabe you were awesome to work with!
Motortoys Limo Service...John, nicest and most helpful limo driver that I have ever met!

Anne & Chris at Dayton Art Institute

Anne and Chris are high school sweethearts who waited eight years for this one very special day. They both love New Year's and thought it would be fun to make their wedding reception an awesome New Year's Eve party!
Their ceremony and reception were both held at one of our favorite venues, The Dayton Art Institute. Aside from being at a great venue, they also lucked out with weather that was unseasonable warm allowing us to do most of their photographs outside. I loved Anne's use of royal blue and silver for their winter wedding. Anne even wore beautiful blue peep toe shoes for her 'something blue.'
We had a lot of fun with Anne, Chris and their great friends and family, and couldn't have asked for a better wedding to end the year with! Anne and Chris also got to start the New Year off to a great start with a Caribbean cruise that they are enjoying this week. Feel free to leave 'well wishes' for the happy couple in the comments section below. You can also see and tag more images on the Studio's Facebook Page. Congrats!
Anne & Chris worked with some of our favorite vendors, which not only help to make the day look great, but also run smoothly as well.
DAI...Chuck you're wonderful as always to work with!
The Flower Shoppe...beautiful as always!
