Erica and Rick…married

I can’t begin to tell you how much fun we had photographing Erica and Rick’s wedding! I got to know them while we shot their engagement session in Washington DC a few months ago and it was like we picked up where we left off.
Everyone was getting ready at the hotel before heading over to the church. While the guys were getting ready, I heard the plot thickening for the walk down the aisle with Erica’s Dad and her….
I watched from the front of the church for anything unexpected. Not until half way down the aisle, did Erica and her Dad, bust out with a shimmy shake! It was hysterical! It helped a little with everyones nerves. Then the tears came during the vows. The whole front row needed a box of tissues as Erica started to cry. Then she just doubled over laughing.
Afterward, the whole wedding party, Liesa and myself piled in the Limo and headed to Founder’s Hall before it rained and tried to avoid the hundreds of Prom goers.
Back in the limo we went and headed back to the Holiday Inn Grantville for the reception and party! It was an absolutely gorgeous day!
Erica, you are one of the most elegant brides we have ever seen. Rick, Thank you for your service and your great big hugs!
Thank you for letting us be apart of your lives and this special day!!

Austin needed a few headshots and some fun images done for his dance portfolio. I met him at his dance school along with his good friend Taylor. The light in the school was amazing as well as all the “color” and texture.

Boudoir…Miss J

Boudoir sessions, are a way for women to feel beautiful, empowered and free. In no way are they trashy.
We hold marathon sessions every so often and are available for individual session by appointment. The feed back from these is so inspiring and uplifting.

“I’m actually sitting here kind of tearing up over them because they have made me feel beautiful in a way that I haven’t felt in a long time.” – Miss C

Just this weekend, I had the pleasure of working with Miss J. She told me, if she can do this, she felt she could do anything!
I had so many favorites for her session it was hard to choose. So with her permission, here they are.

A successful night at the Katie Herb Gala

What an incredible turn out! Almost 200 people showed up at the Antique Auto Museum for this amazing event to raise money for Congenital Heart Defect. The original date of the event was schedule for February 6th in honor of Congenital heart defect awareness week but we had the snowstorm of all snowstorms that day. So April it was and the weather was perfect.
The night was filled with casino games, drinks, food, music and love. The support that Jason and Denise Herb received blew my mind! I had the opportunity to donate my time to help them out. We covered all the happenings that night and even set up a little photo booth for fun. Big thanks to Austin Robbins for coming out to shoot with me!!
