Carrie and Abe – Engagement Portraits

Carrie, Abe and I met at Kent Park to take these.  They used to go there quite often so it had special meaning for them.  Speaking of special meaning, they met and worked together at Slims in Tiffen, Carrie used to live right across the street.  Slims was the other location we went to. 

They were a lot of fun to work with, thanks for choosing us as your photographer Carrie and Abe!  We really appreciate it! 
















As always, hope you are having a wonderful day!  Feel free to leave comments!

Kylie and Ryan – A Love Story

Kylie and Ryan couldn’t have picked a better day in July to have thier wedding. It was pretty darn close to being the perfect dream wedding.   The slide show is just a small “sneak peak” of the great images we got July 18 at Kylie and Ryans beautiful wedding!   More to come soon.   

When I saw this image in my viewfinder, the clouds just seemed to be whiter and brighter around them, which to me was symbolic of thier love for each other and the positive energy that eminated from them as a couple.  



Perfect weather, a couple willing to give us time to photograph just them, great personalities, outdoor ceremony by the lake at the Amana golf course with a beautiful view, appx 2 hrs before sunset so great light and the sun came out for the ceremony.  There was a harpist and vocalist, a horse drawn carriage took them to the reception,appx 300 guests at the reception held in an the Amana Barn.  Guests were from as far away as Mexico City.  Just overall a beautiful wedding, and a beautiful couple! 

A special thanks to Jaime Moquin and Greg Frieden for helping out with this one!  Great teamwork!   And of course a special thank you to Kylie and Ryan for letting us participate in thier specail day!   Also thanks to Peter Bradley Adams for letting us use “Chant”

Sneak Peak- Jenna and Brandon’s Wedding

This is Jenna and Brandon, had the pleasure of photographing thier wedding last Saturday, July 11, 2009 at Kent Park!  What a beautiful day it was, they couldn’t have special ordered better weather for an outdoor wedding!  And Kent Park was the perfect setting! 


This brings to mind though the importance of giving us photographers 10 to 20 minutes of your day to focus on just you, the couple!   It’s not a lot of time and the results can be well worth the little bit of time spent.  Believe me, you will cherish these images for the rest of your lives together!  


These are the results of Jenna and Brandon letting us focus on them for a few minutes of thier day!  All images are taken by me, unless otherwise noted.    Thank you Jenna and Brandon for letting us participate in your specail day!
