Photography is our love affair with life.

Life Since You is the affectionate name for the wedding and lifestyle photography works of Gabrielle + Nicholas Lute. We live for documenting the love stories of happy couples and their growing families, while raising our own. Our relaxed and personal approach to photography is to blend classic portraiture with authentic moments.

During our time together we provide you with prompts that encourage meaningful connection, and capture the magic as it unfolds before our lens. We regularly service thirteen counties near Tuscarawas County, Ohio but are always happy to travel.

If I Could Tell A Story in Words, I Wouldn't Need A Camera

Our story begins eight years ago, when Gabby bought her first Canon to document her everyday misadventures in parenthood. It's no exaggeration that our kids have grown up with a camera in their faces, and that is how this business got its name. This all started with an emphasis on families, but after we became engaged in 2014, the excitement of planning a wedding pulled us in that direction. Before you know it, weddings were the bulk of what Gabby was shooting, and eventually Nic came on as a second-photographer.

Today, we are living in New Philadelphia, Ohio, raising two children, with a little one due in September of 2017. While we both love being behind the camera, Nicholas spends his days nursing patients back to health. At least one of us had to have a steady day job, right? Sometimes that means weekend shifts, so we have two amazing assistant shooters, Kate and Amanda (who took our family photo above!), that tag along with Gabby when needed. It's pretty much the best job ever, and we have the good fortune of getting to call so many of our repeat clients friends.
