Photos Of Benham's Grove Wedding And Reception Photos Centerville Ohio 2018

Wedding Images At Benham’s Grove


Each year I photograph exactly one wedding at Benham's Grove in Centerville, Ohio.  This home, circa 1885, is located near the intersection of State Route 48 and State Route 725 and is beautiful.  Being close to these roads means this Dayton wedding and reception venue should be noisy and busy.  However, this property is very quiet due to the large amount of trees on the property.  Overall, this is a good location for a Dayton wedding and reception.

Here are the reasons why you should choose Benham's Grove to host your wedding and reception!

  • Historic home and property

  • Beautiful gazebo for wedding ceremony

  • Permanent tent for larger groups

  • Party barn with bar for dancing and smaller celebrations

  • Covered patio with room for 9 round tables

  • Pond with fountain

  • Trees and well-maintained landscaping

  • Groom's house and getting ready room

  • Bridal suite upstairs in historic 1885 home

  • Free parking

  • Close to major highway

The wedding in late September 2018 went very well, and everyone had a very good time.  Of all the 172 other weddings I've photographed, this was the shortest ceremony I have seen.  We had a short amount of time for bridal portraits and family photos before everyone wanted to eat and party.  Cincinnati wedding photographers can get to this venue in about 45 minutes, so keep that in mind if you are a Cincinnati bride and groom!

Testimonial Review Update After The Wedding: "Kevin photographed our wedding a few weeks ago and he did amazing! We got over 1000 pictures back, and we even got them back in a timely manner! Kevin was professional, kind and knew exactly what we wanted. We cannot thank him enough for capturing our day! We also got an 8X10 coffee table book, and man oh man do we LOVE it! Kevin definitely went above and beyond with that coffee table book. I also want to note that Kevin saw us (bride & groom) without a drink and quickly got us one, which he did not have to do, but it was much appreciated! Thank you Kevin!" - Laurie L.


Downtown Louisville Kentucky Architecture And Building Photos 2018

Louisville Architecture And Buildings


On a fall 2018 afternoon, I spent a few hours wandering around downtown Louisville, Kentucky. One location I wanted to photograph was downtown Louisville itself. Below are images of some interesting architecture that caught my eye while exploring Louisville.

If you have a few hours free in Louisville, take some time to walk around. There are so many unique buildings, interesting angles, and historic properties. This would be a great city to photograph newly engaged couples for the engagement sessions. I would also love to photograph weddings in downtown Louisville!

One of my goals is to photograph a downtown Louisville Kentucky engagement session or wedding.  There are several amazing bourbon distilleries, breweries, and unique buildings.  Call or email me if you'd like me to be your Louisville engagement photographer or Louisville wedding photographer!


Wilmington College Ohio Wedding And Reception Photos 2018

Downtown Wilmington Ohio Wedding Photos


In September 2018 I photographed a beautiful outdoor wedding at College Hall on the campus of Wilmington College. After one of the most unique wedding ceremonies I have ever photographed, I photographed a fun reception at the Clinton County Exposition Center in downtown Wilmington. The wedding and reception were very nice, and the bride and groom were excellent! My favorite part of this central Ohio wedding day was photographing the bride and bridesmaids in downtown Wilmington in from of the Murphy Theatre, murals, and storefronts.
