Baylee!

Baylee is now living with us at our new home in Dayton. I'm so excited!! :)
I took her to an awesome groomer in Beavercreek, OH called Doggie Styles Day Spa. I picked them because I saw that they have awesome services like blueberry facials! (Yes, I love Baylee that much.)

Today she went and it was an awesome experience. She got treats, a positive report card, a bandanna and she smells like blueberries!!! We are so happy that we found this place.

If you're in the Dayton area and looking for a groomer, I 100% recommend them. We will be going back often!

I got a new camera. Omg.

I finally got the 5D Mark II. I've been waiting for over 2 years to get this little bundle of joy. :) I am so excited.

I just wanted to share. :)

Dave and Kat's SURPRISE wedding. :)

Dayton, Ohio
3/21 weddings for 2011

A while back, Kat contacted me with an unusual proposal. She was getting married, but no one knew. Instead of doing normal wedding photos, I would be photographing a "surprise birthday party", but it would be the guests who got the surprise. Of course, I was stoked to be a part of it.

Kat and Dave are so awesome. I love how laid back and down to earth they are. The fact that they did a surprise wedding party said a lot about them. They are so fun to be around.

Last night, I got to sit with them and watch them look at the wedding photos for the first time. I've never done that before. While it was a little scary, it was so awesome to see their reactions. I think my ego blew up about 10 notches.

Enjoy these photos.
And congrats to Kat and Dave!
I loved being a part of your big day!

My brother totally got hitched.

Josh and Katie Valle
Springfield, OH

I love my brother, Josh. He is one of the funniest and kindest guys I know. When he was 15, he met Katie. I liked her from the start. We joke that we are soul mates. She is the sister I have always wanted. Her and Josh let me live with them for a year so that I could get my business up and running successfully. They are just the best.

We have been through hard times, fun times, sad times and happy times. 7 years and 2 kids later, they tied the knot. It was a small and beautiful wedding. 14 guests included parents, siblings and grandma.

Get this. Their wedding was less than $800. That blows my mind.
When you have an awesome church (New Hope, Springfield, OH) and when your sister is a photographer, you are bound to have a great wedding. At the bottom of this blog, I will post all of the vendors for the big day.

Josh, I love you more than you know. You have grown into such a strong and handsome man. :) Thank you for supporting me in my photography. I learn a lot from watching you with your kids. You're such a baller dad. Maybe someday, I'll get to buy you a pimp ride.

Katie, You don't understand how much you mean to me. I could cry like a girl just thinking of how happy I am that I get to share the same last name with you. You are a wonderful mother and a true friend. Thanks for being so hawt.

Congratulations, Josh and Katie VALLE!!!!!!
