Josephine + Benjamin

Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing a vow renewal for Josephine & Benjamin. These lovebirds had a great story. They were childhood sweethearts and although they were married they never had the fairytale wedding. It was really an honor to be able to give them the wedding photos they never had. They were so fun and so sweet to work with. I hope to be able to work with them again in the future.

There day turned out fantastic. It was suppose to rain all day and be just blah, but they ended up with a stunning day and great weather. Here are a few from their very special day.








Did I mention what great dancers these two are?

quick update

OK I know I didn't post yesterday but I have a really good reason. "My dog ate my homework"...lol. Ok so that's not really what happened. Yesterday (and most of today) I had technical difficulties. I had a memory chip go bad in my PC so I am working on half the memory and trust me when I say that it is seriously effecting my progress on a lot of projects (GRRRRR).
I'm off to the store this morning to get a new chip and possibly an upgrade. I'll post the L and M pictures sometime this afternoon.

Thanks for being patient. I also have a wedding this weekend, so don't forget to check back on Saturday night to see a preview.

K is for

KEYS

I almost freaked out earlier today. While Bryanna and I were at the ball game (see post below) I couldn't remember what I did with my keys. They weren't in my pocket, and I couldn't hear them in my bag. I finally sat down and dumped everything into my lap and poof my keys appeared tangled in a hairband which caused them not to jingle when I shook the bag.

A gift from my niece (sorta)

Well today is mother's day and my niece "took me" to see the Somerset Patriots play. Now I'm not a huge baseball fan but I enjoyed myself. I took a few action shots and remembered how much I loved shooting outside in natural light. Here is one of my shots from this afternoon.

F is for

Fairy without a Foot

I saw this fairy swinging on someone's tree as I was taking a walk on a really nice day. My eye immediately danced all over the texture and then got stuck on the missing foot. So on my "F" day I came back to shoot it. Since no one was home I couldn't ask permission, but I hope the neighbors didn't think I was "casing the joint"....lol.

DUCKY

Since today is suppose to be a "lazy sunday" I allowed AJ to play with almost anything he wanted. Well he made it into my prop closet and found a plastic ducky. I haven't used the ducky in a while so it was a perfect candidate for my D.

B is for

BUS

This afternoon while I was walking Obi we passed this bus. I live around the courner from an elementary school so we see alot of buses. This particular bus was parked by the waterfront and had a HUGE cat underneath it. Well my darling Obi smelled the cat and went nuts trying to get under the bus (as I was trying to take this shot...lol). Luckily no animals (or people) were harmed while taking this photograph.
