    Tanya and Orlando are the most fun and passionate photographers I have come across! I found myself giggling so much and having such a blast with them. It’s great how they will bring ideas to the table but are entirely open to the ones you have to bring as well! It felt like I was shooting with my best friends even though it was a more formal environment. I would recommend Luminus 10/10 :)

      About this pro

      Formerly a commercial design and photography service provider, we are a couple, as well as a team of photographers from Ohio, who breathe and live to perfect what we love to do. A camera with an interchangeable lens, is an amazing tool we have aimed to master. The portraiture, is an artistic craft. The details, are precision captures to better tell the day’s story. The journalism, and the photo-essays of the day, illustrate the in-between moments which freeze the interactions and relationships between family and friends. It is all important for us to document. It is the mission of Luminus, to provide our couples a full body of outstanding imagery, by means of artistry through painted light on still frames, as well as motion pictures. Between the two of us, we have combined our experiences through many genres of photography, to evolve to what we are today. We are vintage, we are high fashion, we are commercial, and we are editorial. We are mature, pristine, and best fit for the couple who are driven to have the best wedding images by aspiring world-class artisans. We are Luminus. Being at the right place, at the right time, and freezing a moment which we come to post process-to look at long after in a screen or in a print and say "that is an amazing frame, and a great moment". Photography to us, is much bigger than we think. Photography is a painting that can happen with the click of a shutter at 1/500 of a second, and remain in our albums or history books for generations to come. For the couple, for the families, or later generations, the photograph remains as a memory which will never blur in our hearts.

        Q & A

        • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
          We offer discounts for our Thumbtack & Facebook couples frequently throughout the year with our packages. Student & Military discounts are always available. Just ask during our consultation prior to booking.
        • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
          When we consult with our couples for wedding photography / cinematography services, we like to briefly learn about our couple and their needs for their wedding plans. Our consultations consist of breaking down their wedding timeline (as we take notes), to aid in a schedule that fits our couple as well as taking the initial steps to create what we call a "photographer's timeline". We scout the location in any way we can, to assess the equipment needs and shots of opportunity we can create throughout the day for our couples. Our booking process consist of an agreement to sign by both parties, which also has a model release & a print/copyright release form. We collect 30% of the quoted total on booking (we provide payable invoices that accept credit/debit or cash or check if we meet in person). The remainder 70% of the quoted total, would then be due at the start of the wedding day. Once our couples have booked with us, we remain in communication to keep updated on wedding plans, contacting coordinators & DJ's if necessary, and creating what we call "a mood board" with our bride & groom to be. A "mood board" (originally used in commercial photography), is a system we have adopted where we have the bride show us shots that they like so that we come up with a "shot list" to make sure our couples have their desired look and feel in their photographs. We cover all bases, so that when the big day comes, everyone knows what to expect and understand how we will perform and deliver on and after the wedding day.
        • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
          Prior to photography, we were graphic designers working in the commercial industry with big names, and affiliated with AIGA Cincinnati and represented by the Creative Circle Agency for assignments. When we decided photography is what we loved to do, we were mentored by world class artisan's of photography to achieve the skill-set we have today.
        Coverage Area for Luminus Photography is about 50+ miles of Dayton, OH.
