Katie and Marshall-

Katie and Marshall-

I'm so far behind! Here are some photos from a wedding way back in June! I had a fabulous time with this couple. I love when I find things in common with the couple. As I was photographing the groomsmen's tuxes, I noticed the name on one of them..."Hey! I know Drew...he grew up down the street from me! I think I may have babysat him." (Then to myself..."wow, I'm old"). Later, Marshall was talking about the priest who would be performing the ceremony. Me again : "Wait, who did you say?...He's my cousin...he married my husband and me...and my parents!" Small world :)

Twin Photos


I had so much fun with these two cuties. I'm sure they have grown up since their photo session back in June! They were perfect little models - one girl, one boy. Of course, getting in my "baby fix" was a bonus too.

At some point during most photo sessions involving kids, the parents get frustrated that their child is not acting "perfect". I always chuckle and say, "no worries, I schedule plenty of time, I'm sure baby will fall asleep before I do." I have yet to be outdone by any child :)...I thoroughly enjoy all of them.

Congratulations again to the proud parents, and thank you for sharing your pride and joy with me!

Rachel and Jonathan

Rachel and Jonathan

Once again...trying to keep up with Neysa :). Here is a beautiful wedding from June. I had a fabulous time with this couple. When I arrived at the golf course (site of getting ready, ceremony, and reception = bonus!) the guys got right to work on the ties.

The ties had to be just right.

Checking out the golf course map.

Chocolate cupcakes! They were delicious :)!

Neysa might strangle me for this next image...we are not typically "rings in the flowers photo" type of photographers. It was a cool thing to do in the 90s but has been overdone. HOWEVER, I really liked the colors and tried to make it more about the rings and the colors than the "rings in the flowers."

While I always enjoy chatting with the guys, I try to not get too involved. After all, I am there to document the day, not create the day. This time I did get to help teach the game of Euchre!

Another one Neysa might strangle me for :)...this is what you do to get the shot you want.

At some point Neysa asked, "Did you...?" I said, "yes". Everyone was impressed that we only needed those few words. Apparently we have been working together long enough that we can read each other's minds. She wanted to know if I got the following shot.

Thank you Rachel and Jonathan for sharing your day with me. Thanks, of course, to Neysa for taking me along as a second! It is always a joy.
