Studio News and Travel Updates!

You may have seen our work around town lately. Our images made the cover for Reach Magazine as well as Cincinnati Wedding's Reception Planner special feature. The lucky couples are Christy and Nick and Kara and Nathan. Also, we will be in New Orleans at the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) national convention. We will be out of the office January 14-18th.

Mark and I will each be receiving National Photographer of the Year awards. To receive this honor a photographer must submit four entries and have all four entries be submitted into both the General Exhibit as well as the Loan Collection...not the easiest of challenges. We submitted four client wedding albums and had all four accepted into both exhibits. Shhhhh.....but rumor has it that we have one album that has made it into the Top Ten Best Wedding Albums in the Country. We'll be sure to keep you updated as we learn more.

We are also looking forward to photographing an engagement session in New Orleans. We then be photographing their wedding this June in New York. Lots of fun!

Amby & Dustin's New Year's Eve Wedding

Amby and Dustin ended our 2011 wedding season with a bang! They lucked out and had a very mild winter day allowing us to photograph outside the scenic Manor House. Their theme of mixing various shades of purple with silver and black tied in perfectly with a New Year's party vibe.

Amby and Dustin had a beautiful candlelit ceremony in the atrium of the Manor House. The colorful cobalt evening sky contrasted beautifully with the warm candle light. We had fun photographing in the atrium playing with the gorgeous lighting (photographer's get excited about that kind of stuff). Amby's Dad also performed the ceremony adding a very special personal touch.

Friends and family got to dance the night away and ring in the new year with the newlyweds making for a New Year's Ever party that will be hard to top! Feel free to leave well wishes for the newlyweds below in 'Comments' or you can view and tag more images on the studio's Facebook page. Congrats!

Amby & Dustin's E-Session!

Even though we photographed their engagement session towards the end of the fall season, Amby & Dustin still lucked into some beautiful autumn colors. They are planning a New Year's Eve wedding, which will be the perfect way to end the year. Plus, they will always get to party on their anniversary!

Ciera and Brian wanted to tie their engagement session into their wedding theme by adding a soft vintage feel to it. We added an effect to the photos in Photoshop giving them the appearance of old film. We also then designed their save-the-date cards to resemble an old postcard. We're looking forward to the wedding this June!

Art & Missy's E-Session!

We photographed Art and Missy's engagement session at the University of Dayton, which is where they both attended college. The campus has many scenic spots to photograph and is a special spot for many Daytonians. We are looking forward to their wedding this March. Congrats!
