    Bride (Mrs. Mitchell)


    Me and my now husband booked Daniel Michael Photography partly because we saw that they had an award winning picture in 2019 from our actual venue and we liked how they went about editing their pictures. For our engagement shoot we got to meet Allyson. She is such a sweetheart and was very easy to work with. On the day of the wedding (September 18th), her and her team were absolutely amazing!! They were so much fun and Melissa (photographers' assistant) had such a great attention for detail to make sure everything looked great, while Allyson and Meggie got the best shots! They took into account all the pictures we wanted to get and Allyson stayed til the very end of the night to capture every moment. Also, as a nursing mom, I was a little stressed about having our 4 month baby girl at the wedding and wasn't sure how things were going to go. But these ladies were such a blessing. They helped with our daughter and made sure everything went smoothly, so that I didn't have to stress and could focus on having the best day!

    Beautiful photos and amazing photographers!

    We’re so happy we chose to have Images by Daniel Michael photograph our wedding day! As soon as we met with Dan to hear his pitch, we knew we wanted him as our photographer. We had such a great time with him shooting our engagement photos and were so excited to work with him on our wedding day. His entire team was amazing! Our wedding parties and families even commented on how great the photography team was. They were also so prepared! They brought a toolbox filled with anything you could possibly need and even fixed someone’s hem. The pictures came out even better than we could have imagined. They captured so many little details that could have been easily missed, like the weird faces my now wife and I tend to make at each other or the table numbers we made ourselves. In the rush of the day we forgot to have pictures of our invitations taken, and Dan offered to have us stop by the studio so he could take them there. Thanks to everyone involved for helping to make our wedding day special! If we had to do our wedding all over again, we’d definitely choose Images by Daniel Michael as our photographers again!

    Amazing Photos!

    We had our wedding pictures taken by Johnny and his team, and they did a fantastic job! Crisp images, beautiful edits, and lots of fun candid moments captured. My husband and I are really looking forward to having these photos to look back on for the rest of our lives!

    Images by Daniel Michael Photography's reply:

    I'm so glad you loved them! Johnny, Rick, Kirstin and Terry will be so happy to see this. I'm so happy to hear it was such a wonderful experience!

Team

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!

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!

What can you say about Dan & his whole crew that hasn't been said by the 100's of couples and vendors before. He is as close to automatic as it comes. What I mean by that is, when you know you are going to be working with Dan or his team, your stress level goes down. You know you are working with a true pro who "Gets It". Here's to many more years working together....
