Jessica and Derek--e-session

Although they have been together for some time, September 27th is the day for Jessica and Derek to begin their marriage. Can I just tell you how much fun these two are? We took these engagement photos in Ellwood City and the majority were taken along this path that leads to the water. Hmmmm...Water with huge boulders that we climbed all over that Jessica and Derek were willing to do barefoot as well! Pam (click on her name for a link to her blog with more photos from the session), who will also be taking photos for me at the wedding, was full of ideas once again. I think we ended up with some keepers! Below are a few of my favorites with a video of more images as well.

Jessica and Derek, you are such a great couple! Derek, I know you didn't like the idea of these shots, but I hope that now that it is over and that you can see them, you can say that it was worth it! I think you said it wasn't bad at all by the time we left our photo session. I am really looking forward to capturing the photos of your day for you!

I just love the way that you two look at one another in many of these pictures.

Ale and Shawn

I once again had the opportunity to second shoot for Pam (click on her name to see some photos on her blog). We headed to Canonsburg and then on to Bethany and Wheeling for this one and had a great time! I even discovered where that new road by the airport Wheeling! I had fun shooting this one...I always enjoy working with Pam though. It's great working together to cover such an important day. Another fun thing though had to be the guys in the wedding party! The groomsmen were too funny and had a few tricks up their sleeves during the reception. One of them you can see in the shots in the video below.

Shawn and Ale you are an amazing couple... I hope you two enjoy the video and I wish you only the very best in your new married life!

Ceremony: Bethany College
Reception: White Palace at Wheeling Park

Bill and Julie e-session

Bill and Julie make such a sweet couple! They were friends back in high school and went their separate ways in college. They found one another again and started chatting and one thing leads to another...Now, here they are preparing for their wedding!

I have to say I really do enjoy doing engagement pictures. I like to opportunity to chat with the couple and for them to get to know a little more about me as well. It makes it much nicer when I show up for the wedding and we know one another a little. For Bill and Julie though, I already know them from their high school days. However, to see them a few years later, it was good to catch up a little with them. I still have the pleasure of working with Julie's mom at my school district.

I am really looking forward to your wedding in October. It is going to be a lovely evening and oh-so-much-fun! I hope you two enjoyed the session in between the raindrops, as that is all we seem to have this summer. We were lucky to be able to get these taken before you two headed back to your homes away from home.

Your pictures are up on your gallery which you can access by clicking on the link to the right, but for now here is a video of a few of the shots.
