Little Charlie

Hitting a local park to capture an image of Charlie was the icing on the cake for a  perfect morning.  Thanks to his mom Brittnay and grandma Tina for letting me be part of their day.

Reminder

I'll be pretty busy over the next two months shooting weddings.  Summer is over and its starting to get pretty busy for weddings again.  Just a reminder, check out my prints for sale on the "For Sale" page of this site.  Always feel free to email me with any questions.

 

Lindsey & Jesse

I couldn't wait to get this picture up on my blog.  Hot off the press.  Took it tonight.  Thanks Lindsey & Jesse for letting me part of your day.

Day at the Zoo

Because you take them for granted, sometimes you forget about your community's own attractions.  The Cincinnati Zoo is one of the best in the nation.  I enjoyed a little time to myself and took in the sights at the zoo.

Changing my look

As you can probably tell I've changed the look of my website.  This one, I believe, is a little more modern looking.  Hope you like it.

Daytona Beach

Daytona Beach Florida is located on the Atlantic coast and caters to the tourist population.  I prefer more of a secluded vacation spot but if you look closely Daytona does hold some beauty.  Luckily I'm an early riser so getting up to capture the beautiful sunrise wasn't that difficult.    

Some early morning fishing pelicans.

For those geographically challenged, this is a sunrise, not sunset.

I never photographed someone surfing before but couldn't resist while watching a group of teens hitting the waves.

Water Lily

I'm not a big fan of flower photography but I couldn't resist after seeing this water lily in the morning light.  Had to post it.

The Center, Downtown Cincinnati

Located close to Fountain Square on 5th Street is The Center.  Available, obviously, for wedding receptions.  Never shot there before and I was amazed how nice it was.  Shot for Ron Shuller.

Lucky Parents

Doing mostly weddings, I look forward to these fun family shoots.  The great weather helped but the real joy was the young & happy family.  Oh yeah, I photographed their wedding a few short years ago. 

Diana Lynn School of Dance

It's the 2nd Saturday in May so that must mean another day spent with Diana Lynn and her dance students for picture day.   Thanks to Diana and her 50 years of experience, picture day runs like a well oiled machine. I'm just happy I'm part of it. 

I have no life.

When you get excited over a new, but simple, tripod bag, you discover that maybe you don't have a life. :)  Using it tonight at a wedding.

My New Workstation

I decided to pull the trigger and upgrade my workstation.  New computer, monitor & desk were the new additions.  I've always worked with two monitors but one of them was old and like with everything, I wanted bigger.  The Dell computer is armed with an Intel 6th Generation i7 processor and loaded with 16 gb of RAM.  Needless to say, its pretty fast.  After processing my first wedding with it I've come to the conclusion I made the right move.   Maybe my next upgrade will be moving out of the basement and upstairs in one of my empty rooms. 

Kicking off the 2016 Wedding Season

So, this past Friday my 2016 wedding season kicked off with a great couple.  Shot at one of my favorite venues, The Phoenix in downtown Cincinnati.  Even though it was February the weather was warm enough to get a few outdoor shots.  Photographed for Ron Shuller's Creative Images Photography.
