Cindy and Leighton’s Wedding


Cindy and Leighton were married in Monticello this past Saturday, September 25, 2010.  Started out a little drizzly then a little more wet as the day went on.  They were both troopers though and despite the weather we still got some great images. 

Congratulations to Cindy and Leighton and thank you for trusting Visions Photography with your wedding photography!   A special thanks also to Claire McGranahan for helping out as 2nd camera!

Brucemorchestra – Orchestra Iowa’s 2010 – 2011 Season Opener


(All images copyright 2010, Orchestra Iowa – Visions Photography)

Saturday, September 18, a day that will long be remembered by the staff of Orchestra Iowa! 

It rained pretty hard for a couple of hours in the late afternoon.  It let up with about a three to four-hour window with no rain about 5pm, so they decided the show must go on!    Then about an hour and a half before things were to begin, the main generator for the lights went out.  The lights also provide some warmth for the musicians.  

Despite the things Mother Nature threw at them, and the technical difficulties, Orchestra Iowa put on a flawless performance on a very cool and damp night! 

2500+ patrons turned out and cuddled up in their blankets with glasses of wine to witness the performance despite the weather!

The first half consisted of the music of Wagner, “Ride of the Valkyries” and Siegfried’s Funeral Music and Finale from “Gotterdammerung”

The second half consisted of Holst “The Planets”, and was accompanied by hi def NASA footage on a big screen. 

The finale was the Theme from Star Wars! 

I’m honored to be working with Orchestra Iowa for my 2nd year now!  I would like to thank the staff and musicians for being so kind and easy to work with. 

A special thanks also to Jaime Moquin for helping out with this event, I Soooo appreciate you having been there and braving the elements! 

If you have never had a chance to see Orchestra Iowa live, you owe it to yourself to attend one of their events or better yet, get yourself season tickets!   http://www.orchestraiowa.org/  They are truly a world-class orchestra right here in eastern Iowa.

Jacqui’s Senior Portraits


Jacqui stopped by last Saturday for her Senior Portraits.  We started out in the studio, then headed out to Beaver Park.   She seemed to have fun, and I always have fun.  🙂   I photographed her older sister Lauren’s senior portaits a few years ago.

Thanks Jacqui for choosing Visions Photography! 

As Always have a great day and Stay Positive!

“Jazz Under the Stars” at Noelridge Park


Sometimes you just got to go out and have some fun! 

It’s no secret I love live music, so on August 26th I went out to Noelridge Park with a few friends to enjoy some “Jazz Under the Stars”.  

Photography for me is all about capturing the moment and emotions as they happen.  Whether that moment is during a wedding, a senior shoot, a family shoot, capturing that special furry family member or child being themself, or something like live music or nature.  Special moments happen every second! 

That is one of the reasons I like photographing live music.  Between the crowd and the musicians there are thousands of special moments, expressions, and emotions to capture.  

Then you add in the special challenge of working with the light and circumstances  you are given, much like a wedding, it makes getting that great shot all the more worth all the time you have spent practicing and learning this wonderful medium called photography. 

Live music is just a great way for me to practice my craft.  It along with fine art photography helps me to improve my work with Weddings, Seniors, Family and Pet photography!  And like any craft or job, practice and experimentation is what makes one great! 

As Always have a great day and Stay Positive!

Brucemorchestra!


We are very proud of our relationship with Orchestra Iowa and the fact they asked us back for the 2010 / 2011 season to cover their events!  This will be our 2nd season working with them!

Orchestra Iowa is just a great organization, from the staff that is charge, to the world-class music they produce. 

If you haven’t had a chance to catch them live, you OWE it to yourself to start attending their events! 

A GREAT way to start is the season opener on the lawn at Brucemore, Tickets are only $ 10 in advance and $ 15 at the gate.  Gates will open at 6pm, bring your lawn chairs and blankets and settle in for a great time!
