At my core, I am grateful for my family, my friends, my church, and photography. I have an amazing son, Noah, who loves art and photography and is in college. I’m a reader, listener, learner, and giver who is simply grateful for the blessing of life.

Kera Estep Headshot Dayton Ohio Wedding Photographer

Rain or shine, you can find me hiking the urban concrete trails, taking in their inspiration.

I love photographs, I love taking and seeing the story photographs provide. Photography brings me closer to each couple on their wedding day. Images are quick glimpses into a single, powerful, gut-busting reminder of the amazing journey we are on. I play with light and emotion to draw out the moments happening all around me. Photographs binds our heart to the narrative of one another.

After studying photography at Wright State University, my professional career began in 2009. I actually shot my first wedding assisting Michael. I fell head over heels in love with weddings and never looked back! Since then, I have worked closely with The Carrs. In 2015, I came on full time with Michael and Grace, and cannot wait to make even more magic.
