~ Happy Memorial Day ~

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Holiday weekend! I am having so much fun with my kids, I have so many photos to post later this week! But I just wanted to get a quick blog post up with some photos of Baby Kayla and the cutest darn knit pants I have ever seen! Enjoy!

~ Amanda and Blake ~

You know how in the movies, they have the scenes where the captain of an airplane comes over the loud speaker and says "Is there a Doctor in the house?" Well, that's what happened at this wedding, except we were in a church not an airplane, and the pastor was asking "Is there a piano player in the house" - The organist for Amanda and Blakes wedding did not show up....and that was just the start of their problems that day. (Luckily some sweet girl in the audience was able to work her way through Canon in D so there was a little coming down the aisle music)

Whooo! Whoooo! Work it Blake!
Did I mention it rained nearly the whole day? So we opted for some indoor bridals.
The guests had these streamer cannons, they were so much fun!
Shortly after the organist debacle Amanda learned her decorator for the reception (drapery, lights, etc...) didn't show up. One would think at this point "She should have hired a wedding planner" - Well....she did that too...but the planner left. I never really got the whole story on that one, all I know was everyone was running around trying to figure out when dances were going to start, etc... I told the DJ "Hang on a minute I will find the planner" the DJ was like "Dude she left like 45 minutes ago" I think they took the days aggression out on in each during the cake :)
All that mattered at the end of the day was that they were together. Through it all they kept smiles on their faces. I've seen brides complain about the smallest things, Amanda had some pretty major things go wrong and took it all in stride. I was so proud of her and Blake.
Pamela, thank you for being my second shooter and Thank you Amanda and Blake for smiling through the craziness.

~ Jenna and Jason~

I am so thrilled to showcase my first wedding of the year without terrible weather. In fact the weather was Fan-tastic! I present to you, my beautiful bride, Jenna.

What?!?! Is that a blue sky? No rain? No tornado sirens? No flash flooding? Woo Hooo!
I've sort of been obsessed with this new vintage present I created in Lightroom, I've been using it like crazy, I love how it looks with the girls photo below.

As soon as we came up to this field I looked at Jenna and said "You know you're getting in there right?" She was totally game.....totally worth it! I LOVE this shot~ Holla!

My friend Stephanie gave me some key pointers/ideas for "casual" group shots a long time ago and I will love her eternally for it :) They are always my favorite photos of the day. (Using my "Vintage" preset again)

Jenna is a photographer herself so I thought she would appreciate this behind the scenes shot....me shooting...and the shot I was taking. (Photo of me was courtesy of my fabulous second shooter Chantel!)

This guy (the best man) told one of the funniest stories I have ever heard in my life! I am still giggling over it!

Jason and Jenna you rock! Chantel you're Da Bomb! Mother Nature, God bless you for throwing me a bone finally!
