Tamika & Mitch {engaged}

Tamika & Mitch met at church.  They’d gone to school together, but only “knew of”one another before that time.  Not really looking for a relationship, Tamka blew off Mitch’s interest in her a few times.  Finally during a conversation about a bowling event for local college students Tamika jokingly asked Mitch if he wanted to […]

Ashlyn & Derek {married}

Ashlyn & Derek were married on a gorgeous, sunny day in September, surrounded by their family and friends.  Although the bride did not grow up in Effingham IL where the wedding took place, all of her family and friends came the distance to support her.  It’s always awesome to watch guests as they pour in […]

Megan & Jake {married}

We have been SO excited to share this one, so you may want to get comfortable because it’s going to be a long post with too many OMGs and an overuse of exclamation points.
When I met Megan and her mom I adored them within 10 seconds. There are some people you meet in life and walk away wondering – how do people that nice really exist!?! They are thoughtful and complimentary, respectful and gracious all in one. To be all these things is already a gift, but then you add the little fact that they are incredibly gorgeous to the mix and you have something special. They are the kind of people who you look forward to being around and make the world a bit brighter.
Megan and Jake live in Atlanta, so we didn’t have the privilege of meeting him until the wedding day, but we knew that if Megan chose to spend forever with this guy – he must be special too. So as the day approached we grew more and more excited, and needless to say it did not disappoint!! Enjoy the wonderfully vivacious wedding day of Megan & Jake!!

“That guest”

Sometimes others write something way better than I could.  This post shows the same examples we could in regards to why you should have an unplugged wedding, but wrote the reasoning so much better!!  Please check out this link and see that this is not just an individual experience for us – it’s everywhere and […]

Marie - Thank you for posting this. I never realized that it could ruin the photographers images. I love to take pictures, but they are no where near professional grade and after reading a blog earlier in the year, I realized that I was the person you are talking about and I have stopped! I only now try to take candid photos where the professional is no where near! You have changed one photo freak! Hopefully I am not the only one that you have reached!! Good Luck and I love your work!

Brian H. - This is actually why I stopped shooting weddings back in 2010 after 16 years in the business. It got to the point that every day someone would be a pain in the ass and ruin the client’s photos in some way. I can only imagine how much worse it is now.

Derek Christie - I am not alone! Thank you for posting this. Guests are starting to do my head in. Great post that I’ll be sharing with clients who hopefully will share with guests.
