Photography has long been a hobby for me. I have always enjoyed snapping lots and lots of photos at family events and in nature as well as on vacations. This picture was taken at the end of July this year at Niagara Falls. I just like it. Why? I've been to the Falls a number of times now and have witnessed many things including the ice bridge that forms. However, this was the first time that I saw the fully contained rainbow that forms from the "American Falls" to the "Horseshoe Falls" on the Canadian side. This picture doesn't show the complete rainbow, but with this one, well, every time I look at it, I think I would not want to be the one to look for the leprechaun and his pot of gold where this rainbow is originating!
Anyway, the reason I am writing this initial blog is to let it be known how I have had the pleasure of expanding my interests in the area of wedding photography. It really happened quite by accident. My friend Kelley insisted that I take her wedding pictures. I didn't want to but she said that it would be my wedding present for her if I would just be willing to try it. I made her promise that if I ruined her wedding photos that she wouldn't hate me! I used my trusty Canon Rebel S and took around twelve rolls of film. She was happy with them. Then, my uncle asked me to take the pictures at his wedding the following year. Then, someone heard about me from someone at one of those weddings, and it has just taken off. The thing is...I really do love weddings. The moments captured with my digital camera now are memories for the couple and their family to cherish.
I will add blogs about some of the upcoming events as they occur and may go back and add a couple from the more recent events. So check back soon!
