Spreading The Word

Now I am not much for using my blog as a political soap box, but it is time to spread the word! The video was too funny not to post! Check it out!

P.S. I want to give a shout out to fellow photographer David Jay whose blog I found this on.

Ok, I spend way too much time on the internet! Time to get back to work!

Joel and Rose

Joel placed a small bible, guitar pick and a proposal letter expressing his love for her in a cigar box and buried it under the shade of a tree. Several months later Joel returned to that spot, but this time with his girlfriend. From the moment he started to read the letter their lifelong journey began. On Sunday Joel and Rose were married at the beautiful Tippecanoe Mansion in South Bend Indiana. I was honored to be a part of the Mike Larson Team along with Mike's wife Rachael and Chicago photographer Kenny Kim. We had a great time capturing the love between Joel and Rose. Mike and Kenny have such amazing talent, and I blessed to have them as friends.

I stole this great shot from Mike's blog....

At the end of the evening, 12:30ish, Kenny snapped this shot of us before we exchanged hugs and left to get some sleep. You guys are amazing people!

Italy with Mike Larson

I was checking in on my morning blogroll and came across Mike Larson's post on Italy. Mike shot a wedding last weekend in Tuscany, Italy. (Italy is on my list of top 10 places that I would just love to shoot in) He posted some amazing pictures of a place full of history. Sometimes it is hard to imagine living in a country that dates so far back when I live in such a "young" country. There will be more to come on Mike Larson because I am second shooting at one of his weddings in a couple of weeks. Check out his blog by clicking HERE. Have a great day!

Kyle and Britta - Wedding

With their closest friends circled around them, they took a vow that tied two families together. Their love for each other poured out and spread joy to all who attended. Family and friends gathered outside the church, Kyle gave Britta one final dip and a kiss before peeling off in a restored Camaro to the reception. The clouds parted in the sky letting the sun shine through just in time for the party!

Music filled the streets of Pierceton with DJ service by Kenny K DJ. This man has an amazing talent to get a party going, and keep it going… I can’t wait to work with him again in the future.

Britta and Kyle, thank you for choosing us to document your special day. Being able to capture your day has been a blessing to us.

Lauren and Mike - Engagement

They both played sports half a world away. Mike played baseball in Italy (including pitching in the 2004 Olympics for team Italy) Lauren played basketball in Germany. It wasn't until a flight back home that their lives finally collided. They both had a layover in Milan Italy, that is where they first saw each other. After arriving in Chicago they exchanged email addresses at baggage claim and began a journey that would change their lives forever. As time went by; phone calls, emails, and visits passed, the unfamiliarity between them changed to friendship and eventually into endless love. One year from the day they met, Mike surprised Lauren by taking her on a horse drawn carriage ride to look at Christmas light downtown Fort Wayne. He got down on one knee and proposed that night.

In August, Lauren and Mike will celebrate their marriage at the Summit Club overlooking the beautiful city of Fort Wayne. It will be a stunning event that we are excited to be a part of.

One Light DVD Coming Soon!

You might remember this post a little while back. I had a great time hanging out in Detroit back in April with fellow photographers as we learned off camera lighting techniques from Zack Arias. Zack’s personality is a one of a kind and he is not afraid to show it. He has rebuilt his business after putting the camera down for a couple of years to refocus his priorities in life. My absolute favorite thing about Zack is his strong belief in not wasting money on cheap gimmicks. The photography industry is so saturated with people offering products that they promise will make you a better photographer. (There is no such magic bullet!)

When Zack put together his business the second time he started with off with one camera body and lens, and one off camera flash. He now runs a successful business of shooting bands in Atlanta. When Zack is not shooting bands, he is traveling the country teaching his lighting techniques. Below is a preview of Zack’s first One Light Workshop DVD. I can’t wait for this amazing tool to come out! I believe in Zack’s vision and would love to support his role in making photographers better at their craft. Check out his blog for more tips, tricks, and techniques if you are interested in learning more about photography.
