Meghan and Ricky’s wedding at Newcastle

Meghan and Ricky’s wedding at Newcastle

So I’m finally posting one of my favorite weddings from last year. This group was a lot of fun to work with, and we had the craziest weather I’ve seen at a summer wedding. There was sideways rain, thunderclouds, rainbows, and a small window of sun. Everything was coordinated by Occasions Wedding and Event Planning.

I shot about 30 frames in this series, and this is probably one of only 5-10 where their hair wasn't blowing straight up. It was like a wind tunnel. But we managed to keep everyone dry and looking good 🙂

They sang one of my all time favorite songs during the ceremony, "Everlong" by the Foo Fighters.

Heather + Ben

Here’s a few from Heather and Ben’s winter engagement session.  We shot a few at the Willow’s Lodge where they got engaged, and then also a few across the street at Chateau St. Michelle.

I love the challenge of shooting during the winter, because the cold, wet, and dark weather forces you to think a little more creatively and shoot differently than during the warmer times of year. We’ve developed a great way to make sure we have “sun” even when the real one isn’t available.

Back to the winning ways

Here’s a few shots from the Lions game on Sunday. I have to admit I was a bit nervous the first quarter. It was way too reminiscent of the Cardinals game getting down so fast so early in the game. But thankfully the Hawks came together and pulled out a nice win. The secondary had a great game with 5 picks!

I love this shot of Aaron Curry. The look on his face reminds me of seeing a nature shot where a hungry lion circles a wounded animal. You feel bad for the young quarterback, but have to realize it's just the circle of life :)

Newly signed Louis Rankin returning a punt. Rumor has it, he is quite fast, and should be an exciting one to watch when the ball is kicked his way.

T.J. nearly caught this ball, but the Lion defender did a perfect job of knocking it out of his hands.

David Hawthorne makes a nice tackle. He's done an amazing job filling in for Lofa Tatupu. Big shoes to fill.

I always love big crowd shots where you can see a lot of peoples faces and their various reactions. The lady in the lower right cracks me up. Not super excited to be at a football game I guess.

Favorite shot of the day. He ran right by us before being tackled by happy teammates.

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I just finished an 8 day stint in Jury Duty! It was my first time being summoned ever, and I ended up getting selected for a very slow moving trial. But I’m happy to say I am finally back in the office 🙂

Here’s a shot from a little portrait session I did with Sabrina. She’s a super creative and talented clothing designer, seen here modeling one of her creations.
