- I don't do weddings or family portraits, but I'm often asked to recommend someone. Here are a few people I know who do wonderful work that might help you.
*For weddings, I recommend Steph Carson http://www.stephanddavephotography.com/
*For children and family photography, Erin Becker is on the West side of Cincinnati http://erinbeckerphotography.com/
