Dayton History's Memorial Hall Photos Outside December 2017

On a cold December day in 2017, I had the opportunity to legally photograph Dayton's Memorial Hall in downtown Dayton, Ohio.  Memorial Hall is owned and operated by one of Dayton's best organizations, Dayton History.  This historic building on First Street is now more than 100 years old and plays host to Dayton weddings and events throughout the year.

I hope you enjoy my photography in Dayton Ohio as much as I do.  Being one of a handful of professional photographers in Dayton Ohio who documents the city on a daily basis is truly a pleasure.

Sophisticated Creative Wedding Photography In Dayton And Cincinnati FAQ Part 2

Do you offer various wedding photography coverage options?

Have you ever photographed at my wedding and venue?

Have you worked with videographers before?

  • Yes!  I have worked with videographers from kids with iPhones to multiple professional videographers with lighting and sound equipment.  I enjoy spending time with other creatives at weddings, and I often get great ideas from them.

Do you use professional camera equipment?

  • Yes!  I use professional Nikon cameras, flashes and lenses. I also love my Tamron equipment for getting great up close shots without interrupting the subject.  I also use professional studio lights, memory cards, and more.

    Should I do a first look instead of waiting to see my bride/groom?

    • Yes!  It is your decision as to when you see each other. From my vast wedding photography experience, couples who do a special first look are more relaxed and get to spend more time together on their wedding day.

    Do you scout wedding venues before the wedding?

    • No!  I have been to almost all Dayton and Cincinnati wedding venues and have photographed more than 160 weddings.  I have learned to anticipate every setting and circumstance and enjoy the on-the-job creativity.  It keeps me fresh.  I do scout locations on Google Maps and Pinterest when I haven't been to a wedding or reception venue.  As I always arrive early to your wedding day location, I have extra time to look around for any other ideas.

    Will the group photographs be as boring and time-consuming as I think?

    • No!  I work quickly and am prepared with high-quality equipment.  I try to infuse humor into these photos and will do my best to shoot quickly.  The big slow down comes when we have to wait for subjects to arrive.  People that will be photographed should be instructed to be at the photo location early and to be ready.
    Oregon District Engagement Photos 2017 And 2018

    As a Dayton and Cincinnati engagement photographer, I get to visit many amazing Dayton engagement locations.  Currently at the top of my list of favorite engagement locations is the historic Oregon District.  This dense area of historic homes, stores, breweries, brick streets, and restaurants provides endless backdrops for eclectic engagement photos.

    When meeting a newly engaged couple in the Oregon District, I set Omega Music as the starting point.  We will then make our way around several blocks within the business area and residential area to create these Dayton engagement photos.  Some of my favorite backdrops to use are the brick streets, graffiti-covered alleys, brick walls of homes (without trespassing), and a great deal of the historic architecture.  I usually finish our Dayton engagement photography time by walking west on 5th street through the main business area. There are so many unique storefronts that enable unique Dayton engagement photos.  Recently I photographed a couple in 416 Diner, with permission.

    As a Dayton Ohio photographer, I highly recommend this Dayton engagement location!  I provide sophisticated and creative wedding photography for Dayton, Cincinnati, and Columbus, Ohio.
