Lyndsey and Samuel 11-1-08

On November 1, I had the opportunity to second shoot a wedding for Pam. I enjoy second shooting weddings. Pam and I often hire one another to shoot weddings together and we work really hard to cover the whole day.:-)

Below is a video of some of the shots I took at Lyndsey and Samuel's wedding. They ended up having a beautiful day for their wedding. They also had quite a great group of friends in their bridal party to share their day! I caught them in quite a few fun moments getting ready, on the ride to the church and of course on the dance floor!

Congratulations, Lyndsey and Samuel!

Lauren and Matt's e-session

Lauren and Matt met me about a week ago now at the old log cabin museum here in town to take their engagement pictures. We took this opportunity for the pictures while they were here visiting Lauren's family. I have known Lauren for some time, but this was my first chance to meet her fiancé Matt. These two just seem to click, as the old saying goes, and I am sure that they have a wonderful life as a couple ahead of them!

We met on a Sunday in the mid-morning, so the lighting was really different for me this time. I think I like working in that light, but I know I liked working with this couple. I always want the couple to be comfortable in how they are sitting and talking or posing. I hope that you two felt that you were comfortable. I also believe I caught quite a few nice smiles in these pics.

I am looking forward to your wedding next May, Lauren and Matt! This is just a little slide show of the pictures and I will be sending you a link to your gallery as soon as it is ready!

Amy and Joel-- e-session

Amy and Joel met me last Thursday to take some engagement pictures. Anyone who checks my blog might realize that this is quite a lull in between taking the pictures and getting the video on the blog. Unfortunately, I have had a very nasty cold that has zapped my energy! I seriously haven't had a cold like this one...ever! None-the-less, I am starting to feel a little better and got this session ready for the blog! Thanks for your patience, Amy and Joel!

Joel is a very talented musician who happens to be located in Pittsburgh by way of London! Amy sent me a few of his songs so I could use one for their video and maybe for a few seniors. Check out more about Joel and his music at his website-- His lovely fiancé happens to be someone I am pleased to say that I have known for some time. I am so happy for both of you!

I hope you two like this little video. I will be sending you info on your gallery links very soon! I am looking forward to your February wedding, and I am also looking forward to seeing you both very soon at one of Joel's shows.

Eva and Jason--October 31, 2008

Eva and Jason...It seems like just yesterday I was meeting you both and Eva's mom at Panera Bread to discuss your wedding photography. Now, the big day is complete and it was a blast! I loved the little details you added to bring the Halloween theme to the wedding. The little skills with the flickering candles, which we used for a ring picture that I am anxious for you to see, and the Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein busts at the head table were just a couple of the small details. Your skull fabric on your garter was another! So creative. I think everyone had a great time this Halloween. What a party!

Below is a little video from the slide show and a few other pictures. I hope you enjoy this.

Congratulations, Eva and Jason! You are such a super sweet couple that I am so glad I had the opportunity to meet!!!
