Last week I met up with Katie and Chris in Little Cottonwood Canyon to capture some love and some vibrant fall colors in late afternoon sun. The photos turned out almost magical with a distinct warm glow covering everything. Here's a sampling of some of the best...
This weekend I had the pleasure of capturing the love shared between a long time friend of mine and his wonderful fiancee by creating their engagement photos. Pete and I have been good friends for almost a decade. I’ve posted a few of my favorite images from the session here.
I met up with Robert and his three rascals in downtown Dayton for a quick family portrait session a couple days ago. It was a blast working with them all - and entertaining to see him wrangling all three children into a coherent photo...but we did it!
Congratulations to Erin & Garrett! I had the pleasure of photographing Erin & Garrett's special day this past weekend at the Bel-Wood Country Club. The weather was a little muggy, but the cloudy skies meant we were able to get some beautiful softly lit portraits. Here are some quick images that called out to me right away when I began editing...We are right in[...]
Last week I shot an event on a very special day - Bob & Dolores' 50th wedding anniversary (married 1962) AND their parents Cyril & Romilda's 70th wedding anniversary (married 1942) here in Dayton, Ohio. Bob is actually my barber - he gives great haircuts - and when he asked me to record this special day I jumped at it. The day started with family portraits at [...]

While newborn shoots are challenging, they are also fun - I never know what I'm going to get because each one behaves so differently. The challenge is building the shoot around their swings in mood and consciousness to capture something truly miraculous. I do these shoots in t[...]
Sometimes unexpected things occur when I trigger the shutter on my camera. In this photo, the flash from a guest's camera activated at the exact same time of my exposure, resulting in the pleasing high key. I may attempt to recreate this effect purposely during future receptions as it casts the image as a high-end fine art piece with an interesting look.
I had the pleasure of shooting Laura & Matt's wedding in Dayton, OH this past weekend. We had a great time, and a quick ceremony meant more time for shooting portraits at Benham's Grove. The change in the quality of light when moving from inside a church to outdoors beneath an overcast sky is remarkable. The clouds function as a giant softbox, creating a light tha[...]
Cam has been a good friend of mine for several years, and I was thrilled to get that call that he wanted me to photograph his wedding at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The Academy chapel has really dramatic architecture, and the red rocks of Garden of the Gods make for some very striking portraits.
