Colleen & Steve's Wedding (Cincinnati, Ohio)

What a way to end a great number of events photographing together (Brittany is off to Belgium and I to Maryland shortly) photography mentor and I photographed Colleen & Steve's wedding in Cincinnati last weekend at the beautiful Maketewa Country Club.

It was a hot and muggy day, but thank goodness for beautiful interiors with lots of windows!  Sometimes window light is even better than outdoors - especially in the heat of the day with full sun.  

These beautiful photos of Colleen were taken using window light...

I absolutely love a good group photo that shows personality: most of you know I am not much for the stand in line and look at me ones :-)

This one has such a great feel...

This may be the biggest wedding party I have worked with, but the group shot worked well.  Definitely with groups this large you need 2 photographers!

And last, but not least the gorgeous cathedral.  I was in awe at its beauty, and wanted to curse all the stairs leading to the balconies all at the same time.

Until next time...

Official NOLAA Gallery Artist

Isn't the NOLAA gallery just the cutest!  

I am grateful to have been given the opportunity so early in my art career to be asked to be a part of the NOLAA's cooperative.  By joining the cooperative I have the chance over the next year to not only have guaranteed space to show my work, but also the opportunity to help the gallery grow its reputation and status.

You really should make a trip to Yellow Springs, OH to check out the gallery in person.  Our coop has a good diversity of artists - a little something for everyone with original art starting around $20!!!

The 3rd Friday of the month is a great time to make a night of Yellow Springs - all the stores are open late, and there is an abundance of street performers, musicians, art, wine, food, and people.

End of the Week and Weekend

I had the best date night this week, and a much needed one at that!  Me and my hunny had a great dinner at Haiku in Columbus followed by going to listen to my favorite female vocal artist, Tristan Prettyman.

Today's art show, Art on the Lawn in Yellow Springs, went GREAT.  The weather, the conversations with customers, and the talent and variety of artists were out of this world.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by!

Even the cat knew I needed a break...

Soot was pretty confident that he was going to keep me from working today :-)

He did manage to make me take a break for a while, but he got tired of guarding the computer after a few hours.

Sarah & Adam's Wedding

This past weekend I had the privilege to photograph Sarah & Adam's wedding. They had so much fun, and are so amazing together as a couple. Their reception was by far the most original I have seen - a big 'ole pool party! Everyone had a blast and was comfortable - the way it should be!

Weddings should showcase your personality and be about you...Adam & Sarah did that to a "T."

I love this photo of Sarah...showcasing her beautiful blue eyes.

Adam's guys were such fun. I love the feel of this photo.

One of my favorite group shots!

The best man sang a rendition of Mrs. Robinson dedicated from the groom to his new bride...ahhh :-)

My macro lens is my new best friend, I love close up ring/flower details.

To go along with the most fun reception ever the couple had these swimsuits made for the evening.

Sarah & Adam - I hope you two had a blast in Jamaica and that you love all your photos...they will be mailed shortly :-)
