Brendan has been photographing since elementary school. His love for the art form has taken him through virtually every square inch of Cincinnati with his camera in hand. In early 2019 he was chosen as the winner of the My City Photo Contest, an international competition run by Nigel Barker of America's Next Top Model. Brendan was selected out of thousands of entrants from all over the world for his unique portrayal of Cincinnati. In addition to his personal work, Brendan has spent the past few years honing his skills as a wedding photographer. He understands that brides cherish real moments from their wedding day and he works very hard to make sure he is able to capture them. Brendan has a keen attention to detail and will treat your photos as if they are his own.

Lindsey has been in the media world for almost ten years now and fell in love with story telling her freshman year of high school when she signed up for a broadcasting class. After picking up that first camera she knew videography and photography would be her life’s passion. After high school Lindsey attended the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music to study electronic media where she further developed her craft. During her sophomore year of college, in 2016, she offered to film a wedding for a family friend and she realized her love for capturing weddings. Lindsey quickly jumped into offering wedding photography shortly after and provides a fly on the wall, candid style that authentically captures wedding days. She quickly connects to couples with her bubbly personality and her ultimate goal is for the bride and groom to have a fun, stress free wedding day while she’s seamlessly working her magic in the background! Lindsey lives on the east side of Cincinnati with her husband and their furry cat children. When she’s not serving her clients, Lindsey loves exploring new restaurants and breweries around the city and is a self proclaimed donut connoisseur.
