The Rinehart Family

The Rinehart’s aren’t huge fans of being in front of the camera and that’s ok.  This was a Christmas gift for Betty because it had been so long since they had family photos done.  I think they guys had fun giving me a hard time, especially Raymond, but they were all great to work with and I got some nice shots that I’m sure Betty will love!

A big thank you to the Rinehart’s for a fun afternoon!  And to Raymond, thanks for being such a good sport! 🙂

Emily & James get married…in Jamaica! Ya Mon!

Hard to believe that when Emily first said something about me going to Jamaica to shoot her wedding…I seriously turned it down.  Crazy right??  But…as it turns out, my husband and I were lucky enough to be able to go and be a part of, not just their wedding, but whatever they were doing.  We barely saw the sun (hopefully they’re seeing it again) and it rained much of the time but what an awesome trip and even more awesome experience.  Emily was open to whatever I had in mind but she also brought along her own ideas which is pretty nice.  I even got to try a few new things…shooting in the rain and back lighting in the dark.  I think we got some pretty fantastic shots…while Tom took care of video.  We’re thinking of creating a team…I do the photography, he takes the video. ha ha

 

Thank you Emily and James for this incredible opportunity and experience and to everyone for welcoming us as a part of the group!  Tom and I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness!!

Joe & Jess

Joe and Jess had a small backyard wedding and it was incredibly beautiful.  Though we expected rain at one point, we had nothing but blue skies and sunshine.  It was just an all around gorgeous day for a gorgeous couple.  I had such a great time working with two and captured some awesome shots.

Thank you Joe and Jess for the wonderful afternoon!  I wish you both many years of blissful happiness!

Samantha and Michael…

This wedding touched my heart like no other.  I’ve known Samantha for years so to be able to see her get married…it was just very touching.  But I have truly never witnessed such incredible heartfelt emotion at a wedding like I did with this one.  Happiness was abundant but that’s usually a given.  There was… Continue reading Samantha and Michael…

Colten turned 1!!

Due to rain the day of Colten’s party we didn’t get to do a whole lot outside.  We improvised on a few shots inside…just so we could capture this little boy at his birthday party.  After Colten was done with his cake…Cody proceeded to relive his first birthday by finishing the job. 🙂  It was… Continue reading Colten turned 1!!

Mr & Mrs Alan Groff

I can honestly say that 28 years ago I never thought I would photograph the wedding of my friends little sister.  But that’s exactly what happened and I’m so glad it did.  Sara was a stunning bride, on a gorgeous day and in a beautiful place.  Despite the fact that it was supposed to rain later in… Continue reading Mr & Mrs Alan Groff
