About Kevin Lush Photography, Professional Photographer
In October 2006 my wife suggested I rent a film SLR camera to photograph three weddings in three weeks as a guest. Upon developing the film from these weddings, I decided that I wanted to start my own photography business. In January 2007, I founded Kevin Lush Photography based in Dayton, Ohio. In 2007, I listed my services for free on Craigslist as a Dayton and Cincinnati photographer.
Shortly after the initial listing, I was contacted by Julie B. who eventually hired me to photograph her wedding on June 30, 2007. I prepared for the wedding by purchasing the basic digital equipment needed for a wedding which included a Nikon SB-600, Nikon D80 camera, and an 18-135 kit lens. I also rented studio lights to take to the wedding.
June 30th came quickly, and my wife and I made our way to Portland, Indiana in northeast Indiana. We walked into the church. The walls were white and the carpet was bright red. As we walked in, I thought to myself "why am I doing this?" I placed my studio lights in the sanctuary and went to the bridal prep area. I walked into the room and snapped a beautiful shot of the bride sitting on the floor looking at herself in the mirror. At that very moment, I was overcome with confidence and all doubt was gone. Not a single time at any of my 160+ weddings since have I ever been nervous or doubted myself. Being one of the best Dayton Ohio wedding photographers has taken me years, but I pride myself on creating excellent wedding images for all of my brides and grooms.
More than 11 years later and after more than 500,000 photographs taken, I still love photographing weddings in and around Dayton and Cincinnati, Ohio. For the last couple of years, I have also branched out by taking on a few commercial photography clients in Dayton, Ohio. Additionally, I have had the opportunity to photograph local landmarks such as the Victoria Theatre in downtown Dayton, Ohio. Concert photography, completely unpaid, is also one of my photography passions. As a Dayton photographer, I have photographed more than 20 concerts so far.
Since 2007 it has been my pleasure to be a Dayton wedding photographer and Cincinnati wedding photographer and to be able to create stunning and sophisticated wedding photography in Ohio, Kentucky, California, Indiana, West Virginia, and Washington D.C. You have many choices of Dayton Ohio photographers, and I'll do my best to earn your business.
I am a Dayton photographer, Cincinnati photographer, wedding photographer, engagement photographer, Columbus photographer, commercial photographer, concert photographer, and hopefully YOUR photographer!
