Story time

As I promised in the previous post about this wedding I will tell the story of K and S. A day before my assistants wedding in July of 2010 I asked K if she would want to go on a blind date. I already knew that my cousin S would go. K said yes...maybe... So after helping set up the church on Thursday K and I had to run and pick a few things up. I suggested that we drive by S house just for fun. It happened to be a rain day for him (he works construction) and he saw us so of course we had to stop. I introduced the two of them and we left kinda awkward, hey we were just caught "stalking"... K was a little unsure about the blind date at this point in time.
 After my assistants wedding some of my friends and I went camping for the 4th of July. S was at the campground with a few friends and hung out on our site when K came to visit. For a few weeks S would stop by and ask about K and K would call and wonder about S. K said I could give S her phone number but she still wasn't sure...
 S called K on his birthday and asked if she would go out for dinner with him. She said yes. After that date K was a little skeptical still. It didn't help that thier first date some of S friends were sitting close to them in the restaruant. I told her to go on one more date...she did.
 And look what happened! I was so happy to see the two of them hit it off in the beginning of thier romance and I was so honored that they asked me to photograph thier wedding almost a year later!

 They had such a fun bridal party and at least 3 or 4 of these guys were on K and S "first date".
 S is so laid back!

Thank you so much K and S for letting me tell your story and letting me photograph your wedding!

Sneak peak

So much fun

T called me last week for a senior sitting. I photographed her brother last year, he was the firefighter.
T brought along her guitar for some photos so while snapping photos I listened to her play and sing.
 She wanted some old buildings and fall color so we stopped at an old mining site.

 I have used this location a few times. I love it so much that it's where D and I got a few of our wedding photos.

Just beautiful!

Thank you so much for thinking of me for your senior photos! Call me next week and we'll set up your second shoot!

Around my yard

The biggest compliment I have ever received is having a mother call me to do another senior in their family after previously photographing an older sibling! I love when that happens! A came to visit me a couple of weeks ago. I did his brothers photos a couple of years ago and I was so excited to photograph A.
 For A's photos we didn't have to travel very far. The first photo was taken against the foundation of my house.
 This second one was taken on our unfinished patio.

Harmonica and Saxophone

M was so much fun. While taking photos I was able to listen to him play the harmonica and his saxophone while sitting on the beach!

Thank you so much letting me take your photos!
