Matt and Sarah by

We are just bursting at the seams with excitement today! A few weeks back, we had a photo shoot with the amazing Indy photographers Bobbi and Mike. We have been planning this session for months, but finding out that we are pregnant made the session a bit more exciting. I must admit, mostly because Bobbi called me out on her blog, that I was a little bit nervous. Ok, a ton nervous. I totally know how my clients feel the days leading up to their photo shoot. Sarah and I took the session and turned it into a two day mid-week retreat. Sarah and I enjoyed the time together wandering around Indy just being together. It was awesome!

There is a lot more of our photo session with Bobbi and Mike on their website!!! Check them out by going to

Fast Track Photographer

I did it! I finished the book Fast Track Photographer by Dane Sanders. Anyone who knows me knows I have trouble finishing books. I have good intentions of finishing a book when I buy it. I love the thought of ending a long busy day with my feet up reading a book. However this typically ends up leading to falling asleep while reading. I have also tried reading first thing in the morning with a cup of coffee. This too has been unsuccessful because I haven’t figured out a good way to hold a hot mug and hold open a book at the same time. I love both too much!

I have a bookshelf full of great books that came highly recommended. They each have their own bookmarks that stay in near the middle of the book. Today however, I finished Fast Track Photographer. This book is absolutely a must read for a photographer who is considering taking their photography to a business level. I learned through this book that if I want to grow a successful photography business I must learn who I am as a person. Without clear understanding of who I am as a person my photography business would be unfocused and misguided. It was a great book and I know there are a few others on my bookshelf that beg to be finished. I think I might finish up Never Eat Alone by Keith Ferrazzi.

Get a copy of this amazing book at and get your photography moving!

Tony and Kelly: Wedding

We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful fall day yesterday here in Fort Wayne. The air was cool and the sun was warm, perfect for the wedding of Tony and Kelly. This beautiful couple was joined together at the Unitarian Universalist Church with a reception at the Memorial Coliseum. This had to be one of the shortest ceremonies we have ever attended. I think we clocked it a just over 20 minutes long! With a short ceremony that gave us plenty of time for pictures on the way to the Coliseum.

Tony and Kelly, you two are an amazing couple and we enjoyed every minute of the day with you two. Thank you for making us feel like part of the family. Have a great honeymoon!

Kelly’s dress and the bridesmaid’s dress were dropped off by The Wedding Place. They even stayed around to make sure everything came out perfect.

Daises and Snaps provided a the beautiful flower arrangements for the day.

Check out this cake from the Nutcracker Sweet Shoppe! It tastes just as great as it looks!

Tony told us that some of his groomsmen played in a band with him growing up. Looks like they played air guitars.

This is one of my most favorite bridal party shots.

At some point during the reception one of the groomsmen insisted in attempting a backflip on the dance floor.

We' ve Been Published!!!

I can’t begin to describe how excited we are about our recent coverage in Planning Your Wedding magazine. Our pictures have been chosen to be on the front cover as well as throughout the magazine. It is a great honor and an accomplishment that we are ecstatic about. This magazine can be purchased at the local Borders, or if you send me an email I would love to get a copy in your hands. I plan on handing this out as we meet with the new brides, but don’t worry if you have already met with us this last couple of weeks. We can get you a copy too when we meet again! :)

P.S. Every magazine includes an AMAZING coupon in the back on our photography services. Pick up your copy and give us a call!

City Barn and Updates

This weekend I enjoyed a visit to Chicago to meet up with my family. We toured the Lincoln Park Zoo downtown and I couldn't help but notice the contrasting scene of a barn among the tall buildings. I found it funny that we put the barn and the farm back in the big city that may have once, many years ago, been there.

On another note, the new website is nearing completion. It is looking like I may not make my Tuesday planned launch. There are some exciting new updates to Show It Sites that will be out early this week that I would love to incorporate into the new site. Keep checking back for the launch mid-week. Have a great Monday!
