Break from Blogging!

Our lives got a little more hectic in 2012 when we added our first child to our family... and then even more crazy when we added our 2nd son in 2015! Wow where did 3 years go?! We've still been photographing around 20 weddings a year along with photographing multiple families, high school seniors, headshots, and other events. We even upgraded all of our video equipment in 2014 to all HD quality cameras so still busy doing multiple video jobs as well! Consequently, my time to update a blog has kind of fallen by the wayside... We update Facebook much more regularly so if you want to see some of our most recent work stop by and "like" our page!

I'm hoping to have a little more downtime Winter 2016 to update our website, blogs and more and showcase some of our more recent weddings along with the multitude of  families we've been photographing. If you have any questions or would like to see work from a specific venue please do not hesitate to contact us!

Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for 2016!!

Engagement ~ Crystal & Christian

Mike and I had so much fun doing this couple's engagement session that I couldn't choose just a couple of the photos to share... Now I'll admit, ice skating was not my idea! Christian is a hockey player and the couple came up with this idea on their own, but after Crystal had saw some of the photos I had taken with Christmas lights she wanted photos with those in them as well... so I came up with the Belmar Shopping Center's Ice Skating rink as the perfect place to do their photos... I'll admit it was a little challenging for the skating shots... and I felt like something of a sports photographer working my camera through all the skaters to just the two of them. And they were definitely troopers... going around and around the rink until I had just the right photos! But the end result was fantastic! Now I can't wait to cover their wedding next October at Arrowhead Golf Club! Yes, folks next October...10 months away and we booked them before the holidays! I think we're going to have a very busy 2012!

Album Delivery!

Finally got Diane & Brandon's wedding album back... so it's ready for the couple to pick-up! This is the first time I printed an ASABook with the full leather cover and the metal insert. I really like it... gives the album both a classic and a modern look to it! Awesome!

Also just diving in to the album designs from 2011. Currently, I have one first draft up and I am starting my 2nd design for another couple. I'm still waiting for photo choices from a few other couples who pre-ordered albums so I can get started on their album designs as well... you know who you are! Please don't wait until Spring or Summer to get those to me... if you do I don't have much time to spend on them so your album may end up simpler in design... if you are having a problem choosing photos you can always contact me and ask me to do it for you.

Anyone from 2011 or previous years that would like to talk about having us design an album for you the Winter months are the best time to have us sit down and do a consultation with you (before we get into wedding season again... I don't work on any non pre-ordered albums over the busy shooting months.)So give us a call!

Portraits ~ Bosma Family

Shayne & Elizabeth found me via the internet with their search for a family photographer. Beth and I chatted on the phone and I found out that they are planning a move to North Dakota where my sister-in-law lives so we chatted about that and hit it off right away. They are also expecting their first baby in March... which talking to Shayne sounds like the 1st in a huge family they have planned. Too bad they won't be staying around because I would have work for life! LOL! All my best to you both in your future plans.. keep in touch!

Portraits ~ Wulf Family

I love it when the couples I just saw get married move on to having a family and call me to cover those special moments in their lives too!
Jillian & Nathan are expecting their first baby in March! So they decided to do my baby belly & newborn package. This consists of a photo-shoot of the mom and dad highlighting the maternity belly approx 5-6 months into the pregnancy and then a session scheduled right after the baby is born where we highlight the infant and also do a few family portraits! An exciting time in their lives and I'm happy to be a part of it!

Portraits ~ Kippenberger Family

Photographed my favorite family again this year.... The Kippenbergers are friends as well as clients and have been some of my greatest supporters. I've been photographing them every year since before there were babies! This year we decided to showcase their very first purchased home! We did more lifestyle shots... like something you'd see in an advertisement about family living! And I will say these have been some of my favorites! enjoy!
