I'm so happy to announce that I've hired a wonderful album designer who will start making beautiful coffee table style digital albums for just $400.00 They are 10x10, 20 sided and leather bound.

This will be an "add on" to my wedding package. So if you are already booked with me your standard package still applies and you can add on the album if you want!

I'm having a sample made next week! Can't wait to show it off~!

2007 is almost here!!!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! I just wanted to let everyone know I am now "officially" taking meetings/contracts for 2008 weddings. I already have some meetings scheduled in early Jan. and they are filling up quick so if you would like one e-mail me at

FYI - My 2008 package is going to change a little bit, all the basics will still be there but the price will go up a little bit because I am adding DVD slide shows set to music..whoo hoo!!!

Also coming soon.....ALBUMS!!! As an add-on only! (You can still get my basic package without one) I'm still working out prices and all that to get them as affordable as possible as soon as I have all the details I will let you know.

I will also be adding some new pictures and videos to my website in the coming weeks...stay tuned!

Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas! From Rocky Manno!

Here is the Casey family - and the awesome cookie bouqet they sent me to say "Thank You" after their son was born. It literally made my night, not to mention I LOVE junk food so they couldn't have picked a more perfect gift!

It means so much to me everytime one of my clients sends me a card, or e-mail or a phone call to tell me how happy they are with my work. I cherish them all and keep them in a little box. I feel like I should be thanking them for letting me do what I love for a living.

As you can tell their dog O'Rion was a little jealous that he wasn't asked to be in the picture!

What a crazy month! I did 23 family sessions in 3 weeks...Whew! Way too many to post on here - although I wish I could cause we had some great ones! A couple of those family sessions were with my former "Birth Mommies" - it is so great to see all of them and catch up with the babies. Here is Mary and Chris back in March when I captured the birth of Baby Jack -

And here they are today!

Baby Jack is soooo cute! It was so good to see them again! I always feel like I'm visiting family when I see my birth clients. They hold a special place in my heart.

Happy Anniversary to me :) My hubby and I just celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary and we sat and watched our wedding video together. We laughed all night, it's amazing how much people change in 3 years!

I have the coolest husband in the you baby!

Okay now I'm off to shoot a wedding in todays blizzard...wish me luck!

Yeah for babies! This is Jeff and Jamie. Jeff has been a friend of mine since our days of Little Lamb pre-school and Pee-Wee Pepsi league soccer. We were best friends in Jr. High and stayed friends thru high school and college. We are both close with each others families and he has been one of my guy best friends my whole life. As adults I've seen him accept Christ, marry Jamie, and now welcome his first child into the world. I am so happy for him and his new little family. He is going to be the best dad ever :)

Maternity Pics...

Jamie was a total champ...

How cute is their baby!

I love you guys I am sooo happy for you.

2007 is going to ROCK! This past weekend I did a ton of engagement shoots and I am getting soooo excited for 2007 because all my brides are AWESOME!!! (Oh yeah the grooms are great too :) But all my couples are so fun and down to earth and excited about their pictures!!! It makes my job so much better when I get to work with cool people!

Whew! Staying busy! Here are 3 session from last weekend, (2 engagements, 1 family) I have 6 more this weekend...GO CARDS!

Jessica and Chris were a very fun couple....First of all they got married on Friday the 13th, wanted to go to a haunted house, and their vows went something like this..."I promise to love good times and bad, for richer or poorer, whether the Cardinals win or lose" - it was really funny! They are both HUGE cardinal fans! What a fun wedding.

WOW! I have never been sooo impressed by a DJ! If you want your reception to feel like a rock concert hire Cosmo T's - - he had the most extravagant lighting kit I've ever seen! I could have taken pictures in this all night!!!

By the way I also got to work with a great videographer at this wedding - Jim Abernathy with He was the videographer at my wedding almost 3 years ago and we've been buds ever since! Good seeing you Jim!

FASHION ROCKS! I did my first ever "FASHION" photo shoot last week and LOVED it! Not sure if I'm any good at it but it's certainly something worth exploring!

By the way...if you've had a recent session with me and haven't seen your pictures on my blog I just wanted to let you know I am trying VERY hard to catch up. Moving into a new house really knocks you back a few weeks and I am trying to concentrate on getting my work edited and to clients on time instead of making sure everyone has a couple pics posted here. Sorry if that disapoints anyone :(

Can I just take a moment to say I LOVE what I do for a living, I can say that from the bottom of my heart. I get to capture the most precious moments in people's lives and give them a gift they will treasure forever. My business has grown so fast and I have been soooo blessed to work with really great people.

Take for example Arinda and Kevin...

When they promised to love each other forever...I was there.

Throughout their pregnancy and her growing belly...I was there.

During her long labor and delivery...I was there.

When they brought that beautiful baby home...I was there.

In this business you get to take backseat journey through their lives. You get to know them, their family and friends, their personalities, and they get to know you. It was really neat to be in their house and see my wedding pictures on their walls! It made me realize how fast time flies and how important it is to capture it all. So thank you to all my wonderful clients for hiring me!!! I am so blessed!

Happy Birthday Rocky!!!

You've come so far in just 2 years. Mommy is so proud of you. You are the reason I breathe.

God is Good. God is very, very, Good.
