    Amazing pictures!

    Don is a photography mastermind! I am beyond thrilled with our wedding photos, and I am so happy we chose Images By Daniel Michael to photograph one of the most important days of our lives! Right off the bat, we had a good feeling about this studio. Daniel was so easy to talk to and really helped us understand the art of photography before we even got into talking about booking, which made me feel more comfortable about what we were paying for. We decided to book Don for our big day. I mean, his portfolio of photos was fantastic, so i was not worried about our photos, but I was still floored (in the best way possible) by what we received. We had several artistic shots showcasing our venue, as well as all of the family and candid shots we were looking for. Don took time to figure out our style and what we liked/wanted from our wedding photos. He is so talented! We had several family members and wedding guests ask about who took our photos. They really were amazing! I absolutely loved ever photo he took. The only problem you will have is deciding which photos you want to display! cannot recommend Images by Daniel Michael enough! Thank you Daniel, Don, and the amazing photography teams and assistants for capturing our most precious memories

    Cathy and Joe's Wedding/Reception

    In making a decision on a photographer for our wedding, we met with Daniel Michael, hearing his “pitch”. Cathy had already read his company’s online reviews, and this is what led us to meet with Images by Daniel Michael.

    The reality is that when you choose a business for a service, you really don’t know whether it’s a good decision until after the event. You look back on the event and how things went, and then you ask yourself… would I choose this company again for the same service?

    In the case of Images by Daniel Michael, the answer is absolutely YES! Daniel and his staff were all extremely professional, but also very approachable. But what made our event flow was that Daniel and staff were very experienced in how to keep things moving, while also coming up with some unique and amazing settings for photos.

    Every appointment was on time, every time we met with Daniel and his staff they impressed us with how seasoned they were, and also how much fun it would be to have them there on our special day. Daniel chooses his staff and you can see his influence is why this company has such great employees.

    If we had to do it all over again, we would pick Images by Daniel Michael!

The driving force behind everything I do is the relationships I have and will develop. I love our couples, their families and friends. Our photographers and all our team members are like family. Capturing those relationships is an absolute joy. There is no type of photography more personal than your wedding photography and that starts with your relationship with your photographer. Everything we do from hiring, training, packaging and style is designed to make create a personalized experience with photos that showcase you, your style and your memories.

Artistically, my greatest strength is being able to identify your personal and stylistic preferences and then blend your style and mine to make photos that are not just creative but completely unique to you, your day and the relationships you have with the people you've invited to your wedding. You are one-of-a-kind and I expect your wedding photos to reflect that.

A little about me, I was born and raised in one the west side of Cincinnati and attended Oak Hills High School. I then received my degree from the University of Cincinnati which is when I discovered my love for photography. It wasn't something I dreamed of as a child. It's something I didn't find until I was already in college. I would have never dreamed then that I'd ever be running the #1 rated Wedding Studio in the tri state.

I have since moved to the east side and then to northern part of Cincinnati. I have three kids who are all growing up way too fast. I enjoy boating with family and friends, water skiing and floating on the water with a quality bourbon and cigar as the kids play on the rafts. I'm a big sports fan starting with the Bearcats but also love catching the Reds, Bengals, FC Cincinnati and on occasion the Cyclones. I like to travel though I primarily go north to the French River in Canada or Niagara Falls or south to Cumberland, Lake Norris, Florida and the Caribbean. I absolutely love taking cruises and meeting new people and seeing new places. I have yet to travel out west but it's on my bucket list! I'd love to get to the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Hawaii and Alaska. I love a good discussion with someone who has a different perspective than my own as I don't know how to grow without hearing different perspectives. I view our studio approach the same way. I like hosting events and being with the people I care about. I'd love for you to be one of those people!!

"The photograph embraces the moment with the promise of offering it again."

Quite a responsibility, if you ask me. This is one of my loves, along with my wife, kids, baking bread, raising chili peppers and so on. Wedding Photography has offered me an opportunity to incorporate my passion for “painting with light” while blending in as part of your wedding day capturing the little candid moments as well as the major events. I want to incorporate the traditional as well as the trendy and dramatic. I want you to see the love you have for each other as well as your family and friends blended with your style and mine captured forever in breathtaking images. It is my duty to tell the story of what makes your wedding unique. What truly makes your wedding photos unique is YOU.

Personally, I'm married with grown kids and live near our studio in Reading. I was born in Romania and have lived in several countries and speak 5 languages. I was a chef and worked in the hospitality industry quite a few years before pursuing photography full time. I still love to cook and grow as much of my own food as possible in my backyard garden. I love learning about different cultures and especially love cooking and eating Indian cuisine. I love wine but really enjoy a nice bottle of Chianti.

Cheers!

Master Photographer

I pursued my passion for film photography at The Ohio University, graduating with a Bachelors in Digital Media and a second in Film Photography Studies. I am always excited to chronicle the happiest day of your life as your wedding photographer. I strive to find those details, those moments that set your wedding apart from any wedding I've photographed in the past. No two weddings are alike, and I love it! Your photos will do more than just document your big day; they will capture the relationships you have with the special people that celebrate your day with you so you can relive your wedding for many years to come.

Personally I became a first time dad to an amazing daughter in July of 2020. She is my world and when I'm not photographing you, I'm playing with or photographing her! I'm a passionate Star Wars fan as well as quite a few other science fiction movies. Ask me and find out which!
