Hi All! Just wanted to let you know I am doing FREE sessions for Military families through Christmas. If you know someone out there that has a spouse that is deployed and wants photos of theirself with their kids or just pics of the kids I want to shoot them! Not only will I be doing the session free but I'll also be making a show of the images (if they want me to ) to share with them overseas. Holidays are an even tougher time four our service Men and Women and I would love to give them amazing art of their family to make their holiday a little brighter. Spread the word and tell them to call me asap, I'll take good care of them, but then again you already knew that right!

Thanks Friends!

Courtney and Mike's Wedding: Holy Cow!

Holy cow this was one of the best weddings ever! Blake and I are still talking about it and it's nearly been a month. I didn't want to post the images until we were able to see Courtney and Mike to deliver their proofs because we had a fun little thing planned with them, but more on that later....

I really just can't describe the feeling I had when I met with Courtney and Mike about their wedding. I was excited of course, but it was a different excitement, more so than just working with a great coulple. If you know them you definetly kow what I'm talking about. They rock! These two are so meant for eachother, they go together like peanut butter and jelly and both of them are such caring individuals. It really felt like I was working with one of my best freinds and I had a trick up my sleeve that I was going to unleash at the reception that was sure to be a hit! Amelia, Courtney's sister and a past Bride of mine and I got together and made one of the coolest shows for them of all their past and present moments, growing up to getting engaged, then we added about 80 shots from the wedding that we shot that day and shared it on a giant sceen for everyone to enjoy at the reception. It was a HUGE hit! The show was a complete suprise to them and even I didn't know how good it would be until I watched it with them. It was by far my favorite part of the day. Watching them see their images and get emotional together, laugh together and wipe the tears of happiness from their eyes was one of the best moments I've ever had in my 15 years of photographing. So Courtney and Mike deserve one of my most sincere thank you's for allowing me the extreme pleasure of being able to work with them on such a fantastic wedding. All the work they put in for their guests, and all the planning sure was worth it because it was certainly one of the most wonderful weddings I've ever been a part of. You two have given me a new found love for what I do and I hope my work on your behalf is all that you could have hoped for and more!
