2009 has been a great year, I've traveled for a bunch more weddings and loved getting to see more of our beautiful country. And that includes this adorable rural Kentucky wedding. So wonderful to be a part of this hometown celebration!

Unexpected Photo Shoot

I met with Casey and Nick last week for a final meeting before their wedding. They wanted to show me around their property where their wedding was being held. They weren't expecting me to have my camera in hand though! Here's one of the shots we got. I'll be sure and post wedding pix soon!

I was beyond thrilled when my sister got engaged. Her man is a great guy and we all love him. So it was the best news ever. The only problem.... she HATES having her picture taken! I have been photographing weddings and engagement portraits for 10 years, I have a ton of great ideas & funky locations. This was going to be the engagement shoot of the decade! But so far, no. She doesn't want to fly to Paris for her shoot. Not even the Vegas strip. Mind you, I'm known for thinking big and she likes simple. So, simple it was. She came to visit me a few weeks ago and I took the opportunity (and the 5 minutes she gave me!) to take these fun pix at my house. It's just them against my kitchen wall! But for now, this will have to do :( I'm still going to try to talk them into something a little more exciting! In the meantime if there is anyone out there that would like to be my sister for a day! Let me know. I would love to do a totally off the wall, like fly somewhere crazy for a weekend, type shoot! And, this time of year, meeting in Miami doesn't sound like a bad idea!

Toms River Wedding Expo

Heather and I are both pretty laid back, so when it comes to meeting couples for the first time, we like to meet in a location that is equally as relaxed. We love our friends over at Chez Alice, (that's our favorite cozy nook) and a meeting there gives me an excuse to indulge in their yummy pastries!

This weekend we ventured away from our cozy cafe and our casual setting to display our photography at the wedding expo in Toms River and I'm so glad we did. We met so many really cool couples planning weddings for all over New Jersey. We also met several great wedding professionals. Ken from Narcissus Florals had some amazing arrangements (love his work!) and if you are looking for something totally unique, check out Favourtique. They do completely custom favors. Their designs were a really cool mix of shabby chic and funky trendy. I think Heather and I spent more time admiring their unique favors than we did at our own table!

We both had a lot of fun at the event. I think we might just do it again!

PPA Photographers Convention

I just returned from a fun trip to the PPA annual photography convention. This year I took our assistant photographer, Emily, and headed out to Phoenix to submerse myself in photo. There had to have been 10,000 photographers there. I think we pretty much took over the city! We found some really great new photography products while we were there. We found the most unique album to add to our line up, so be sure and check back for pictures of this new addition. And to Heather, we missed you! Next time we aren't letting you miss out!

The Before Pix

I occasionally have a client who will tell me they don't want to have pictures of themselves "getting ready", so they suggest that we don't do pictures before the ceremony. As I always say, I am super flexible and I will do whatever my client wants BUT, I always have suggestions!

The before ceremony pictures of the girls getting ready is a nice way to begin the documentation of the day, but there is so much more to the before pictures than just getting into dresses. This is the point where I am going to capture many of the details: the dress hanging, shoes, jewelry etc. I am also using this time to capture candid moments of family and friends as well as the bride. Lastly, I find this is really the best time to create portraits of the bride alone. Hair and make-up are perfect, there aren't as many people around us, it's by far the best time to capture those elegant images.

I have to admit, I love shooting the before pictures. There is so much emotion and always so many fun moments. I love being the fly on the wall and just waiting for beautiful moments to present themselves. I'm smiling just thinking about it!

Here are Jennifer's pre-pix. We photographed her wedding in November. There were a ton of great shots throughout the day, but here are just a few of the moments from before the ceremony:

Two Birds for the Bridesmaids

I just love this bridesmaids dress... It's Two Birds. The great wrap dress that can be worn 10 different ways. I first saw this adorable dress at Dina and Adams wedding a few months ago:

Most recently I saw Two Birds at Tyler and Shoren's destination wedding on Sanibel Island in Florida.

Here are a few more pix from Tyler and Shoren's big day:
