Kevin Lush Photography

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 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.  Having zero experience as a wedding photographer, I listed my services for free on Craigslist.

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 north east Indiana.  We walked into 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.

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.  I have photographed more than 20 concerts so far.
