Wedding: Tisha + Andy

Whew! It's been a while hasn't it? That's because I shot a wedding last last weekend, but not as a second photographer, but the primary! All the sudden my work just multiplied like crazy! Editing now takes two weeks (hence the hiatus) instead of one. Before I go into the details of how awesome the wedding was, I some special people to thank:

Sarah - Thanks for the referral! I hate to brag, but you missed out on a sweet wedding that you could have shot too! Ha ha...

Dale - Thanks for second shooting for me last minute, and did a phenomenal job assisting, making sure I got the shots I wanted, so I can look good in front of the bride/groom.

Laura - I will be honest, I was so ill prepared at the last wedding I shot by myself... But by second shooting like 10+ weddings with you, I felt so much better going in this time, and was actually able to enjoy the wedding too!

So, on to the wedding... Too many good things made this a perfect wedding: Nice weather, relaxed couple, knowledgeable assistant, borrowed cool camera lenses, good food, nice wedding colors, and most important of all, I was prepared. So thanks to Tisha and Andy for being so awesome, enjoy your photos! :)

Did I say I like ring shots? :)

Wedding: Julie + Henry

Can I just first say, thank you weather for being awesome that day! Wow, it was not too hot or cold, the temperature was perfect. So when you add my awesome primary photographer Laura of Lark Photography and super fun couple to the mix, I'd have to say it was a great day.

And to put the icing on the cake, my friend let me borrow his Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens, so I can take some close up ring shots! You can say it's a mistake, because now I love this lens and I really want to buy one... ha ha!

So now, let me share with you the fun day I had!

Very cute kid, and photogenic too!

The groom's parents are from Nigeria, so the foods were awesome!

2010 Road Trip

It's been a bit since I posted, but I finally got around to pick out a few interesting photos I took a few weeks back when I took a road trip with my family. We went from Kansas City to Santa Fe, then Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Las Vegas, Death Valley, Rockies to Denver then home! As a young adult, I think I would like to visit Vegas again the most... :)

Took most of these with the Canon 24-70mm F/2.8L lens, but a couple with the Sigma 15mm Fisheye lens. There are plenty more photos, but not enough time to edit all of them. Enjoy!

Oh my gosh, did I say how much I LOVE M&M's?!

Wedding: Robyn + Steven

I was on vacation last week, and planned on arriving at home on Friday night, then rest for the weekend. But in the middle of the trip, I got a call from Laura, asking for help on the Saturday (right after I got back). I was a little hesitant, because I won't be 100%, but agreed to it anyways. Laura's personality gives off energy... :)

Boy am I glad I took on this wedding! It was in St. Joseph, MO (1 hour away) and rainy, but that didn't stop Robyn and Steven from having the time of their life! As a modeling photographer, Robyn has got that "exotic" feel and she seems to know fashion. Steven was so easy to hang with, it made my job so fun. I usually try to make the groom laugh to relax him, but Steven was making ME laugh!

Anyways, I got lots of photos to share here, so let's put that internet connection to good use~
