So I decided years back that I was not going to do wedding photography because my passion was with capturing families, but when my step sister called to ask me to shoot her wedding I said yes! :0)  This was a cool experience for me because I had to do this all on my own while my trusty assistant (aka my handsome husband) was shooting video…I slung two cameras around my body and began to shoot.  I have to say that one thing about shooting weddings that really excites me are all the organic moments where you are just a fly on the wall capturing all the happiness…..Ooohhh….I just loved that part!  (By the way, I just met a super nice photographer who lives down the street from me who is a sister in Christ and who I will be referring all wedding inquires too in case anyone is interested!! :0) <3)

Tara and Wes…married!

July 27, 2010

We had the pleasure of shooting Wes and Tara’s wedding this past Friday…and it was our very first!  We were a bit nervous as I checked the weather (you know, the “hour by hour” details on and it said 100% chance of rain right at the time we would be shooting the wedding!  I can honestly say I was praying for things to go well all before the shoot.  And guess what?  God is awesome because the only rain we experienced lasted about one minute and was gone!  Tara and Wes still had to put up with one of their photographers not having a voice however…I had laryngitis…but I learned how to do sign language at the last minute (like a “thumbs up” for “I got the shot”  lol)…Chris had to be my voice that day 😉
Tara wanted to pose with her little kitty that they cutely adorned with a white bow tie 🙂And each one of them posed with their dog who also got a bow tie!  Here’s Wes and the doggie 🙂Here’s the couple getting their first look of one another…
