Phil & Sarah's wedding

Two weekends ago I helped my childhood friend Cydil shoot a wedding in Lexington, KY. I really enjoy shooting weddings. There is so much emotion and energy throughout the entire day for everyone involved. It's so much fun to get to be there for the formal poses and to also catch the small emotional events that happen on the side when people think no one is watching. Those are my favorites. I'm very thankful to Cydil for her inviting me to help her at many of her weddings this summer. I have been working steadily at editing them so that everyone can see what I've been driving to Kentucky for all summer!

Here is the slideshow for Phil and Sarah's wedding. I love the federal-style church, Sarah's dark complexion (I have pigmentation-envy!!), and Phil's ornery spirit. I must also say that I absolutely loved Sarah's dress.

Although it didn't make the slideshow, this was one of my favorite pictures of the night. This girl had the best dancing hair, if there ever was such a thing! She be-bopped all night, and in every single picture her hair is flying just like in this one! I laughed and laughed as I edited those pictures!

It's On It's Way...I Promise!!

I know, I know! I need to post more pix from Chris and Katy's wedding! I have been working feverishly since the last post to get those done, but instead of posting a few at a time, I thought I would try to impress everyone by putting together a slideshow of my favorite images. So, I have been working in the evenings and even taking my laptop to the library over my lunch hour working on it! I promise it's almost done. Just give me one or two more days! It's hard, you know, when there's ten pictures of a cute little guy like this and I have to decide which one's not only my favorite, but which one the family will love too! So, I promise, it's on it's way!!

Chris and Katy's wedding

This past weekend, my friend Jennifer's sister Katy got married (did you follow that?!). A couple of months ago Jennifer asked if I would hang around with them for the day and capture some of those little things that happen before and during preparation for the big moment. It was so much fun! Katy and Jennifer's family was very gracious and welcoming, and I hope that I caught a few things for them that were going on in the background that others maybe hadn't noticed! And, actually, some from the foreground were pretty darn fun too! Here's thirteen...of my 600 favorites!

Yep! These were Katy's pink! I loved them! I could never have pulled it off, but they were perfect on Katy!

There was many people taking pictures!

Katy's sister Michelle is on the left. She's due with their first baby in just a few weeks. Jennifer is on the right. She's due with their first baby in December. It's going to be a pretty exciting fall and winter for the Yakey family!

Katy and the groomsmen.

Jennifer will hate me for including this picture of her and her husband Kurt Bible, but I love it! And, I think that Baby Bible is going to love it 20 years from now!

Congratulations, Chris and Katy!

Miss G!

Two weeks ago my good friend Allison let me practice taking pictures on her little girl...and this little gal meant business. She showed up with props! Her cell phone, purse, and a whole bunch of other favorite accessories that every (almost!) 3-year old needs! It was too funny! She put up with my snapping away for a couple of hours, and then informed me on our way to the last spot that she was done for the evening. She's a woman that truly knows her own mind. So, we'll keep that last spot for next modeling session, I guess! :)

Despite the accessories, my favorites, as usual, are the close-ups for the most part!

Can anyone say, "China Doll?" Seriously, you'd think she had lipstick on her lips were so red in these pics near the old barn!
