Mlaney & John   Friday the 13th

A magnificent wedding took place on October, Friday the 13th 2017 in Loveland, Colorado at the McCreery House Bed & Breakfast and I was the lucky one to photograph it. I'd like to start off by saying that Julie of The McCreery House is an absolutely incredible woman. I think every wedding needs a Julie.  Let's talk about how I first met the bride. She would cost me hundreds of dollars, probably thousands over the years. She worked at my favorite store,Torrid. Every time I would go in, Mlaney was the one to help me. After awhile I would ask for her because she always made sure I had the best outfits. I would come in for one or two pieces. She would put them in my ...

Meet Mattie. Another brilliant young lady that I got to know while my daughter was playing rugby in high school. I was thrilled when her mom asked me about Senior Pictures. They had moved north and I wasn't sure I would get to see this family again. Mattie chose some fantastic locations for me to photograph her in. I was not familiar with her area & appreciated her help with location scouting. She chose two locations that meant a lot to her. Mattie even brought along, Nick to her photo shoot and I had just had to include him. Aren't they just adorable? They met at a rugby tournament in Elkhart, IN. They both play Wisconsin rugby. I miss being a rugby mom so it was fun listening to ...

Meet Claire. Senior.Swimmer.Rugby girl.Sweetheart.   We had a blast between spending time at her pool and our photo locations in downtown Joliet. She was a natural! That smile will just melt your heart. I met Claire and her family a few years back. Our daughters played rugby together. She loves rugby, no doubt, but swimming has her heart. Nothing makes me happier than when a Senior really gets into their photo session and we get to plan shooting locations based around their personalities. Claire definitely did not disappoint! She even met me bright and early at 6:15 am at her local pool to get started. It was a big day for her.. Senior Photo shoot and Homecoming! Two hair ...

I remember getting the phone call inquiring about my services about this wedding while I was on vacation in the Northwoods around the fourth of July. I made my sweetheart pull the car over to the side of the road because I needed to concentrate on the call. Everything Jen ( the bride ) was telling me was getting me more and more excited. A surprise wedding she told me. Everyone is going to think they're going to an engagement party.  I don't think I was able to hide the squeals of joy from this potential client. These are the unicorn weddings. I've always wanted to photograph a surprise wedding. I was the lucky photographer who was chosen and now here we are. The sky was blue, the ...

September 30, 2017 Ruth 1:16  A wedding ceremony that brought two different congregations together. This day was filled with joy, laughter, and happiness. It was all around us. One of my favorite parts of the ceremony was when the entire family was giving communion during the ceremony. I've never seen that and I thought it was truly lovely. At the very end, right before the kiss, the kids were called up to the alter. I loved that they got to walk back down the aisle together as a family. It was so sweet.  After a ceremony that was filled with surprises everyone was invited downstairs for a dessert filled reception with fun for all. I don't know which of the kiddos ...
