Very excited to share this wedding on the blog. I’ve been wanting to share it since the day I photographed it! There are a hundred and one reasons why I enjoyed this day. I couldn’t possibly name them all! So I’ll try to narrow it down to a couple reasons. Let’s start with the fact that my good pal Becky Novacek was the mother of the groom. So was I nervous photographing another photographer’s family wedding? Well let’s just say a little bit . . . I was more excited that Becky and I were going to photograph together for part of the day. Also, I was glad that I could document the day and allow her to sit back and relax and take it all in. When you’re photographing such an event you don’t always get to partake in the activities in the same way. It felt amazing to know Becky trusted me to capture such an occasion.
Alright, enough with the typing, you came to see some images! This first one was from the “first glance” series. I love the look on both of their faces despite the cold weather. Such great smiles!
Becky and I met for lunch earlier in the week and scouted out some great locations. I love that we share this passion for unique photo spots. We hit the jackpot. And I love that Beth and Jared were game for getting in the car and going with us. Thank you!
One of the hard parts about blogging this one was choosing which photos to share. There are just too many. I created a couple smaller collage photos to condense more photos together so this didn’t turn into the world’s longest blog post.
Here are some of the *many* beautiful details that were a part of this unique wedding day.
Beth and Jared had the great DJ ever, TeeRoy from Unique Pros. I’m lucky enough to have worked with TeeRoy twice this wedding season and I’m always happy to see him when I show up at the reception. Love this photo of Beth’s entrance into the reception! The music was rockin’!
I just had to share this next picture on the blog. Whenever the guests started clinking their drink glasses indicating a kiss from the couple Jared would choose a couple from the crowd. He would then ask them to demonstrate a kiss and he and Beth would kiss each other exactly the same way. What a perfect expression on their faces while watching Beth’s parents smooch!
Again, here’s a second collage of shots taken throughout the day. Wanted to make sure and post images from the parent’s dance. I always end up crying behind my camera at that point in the evening.
I’ll have to split this blog post up into two parts because I haven’t shared any images from the photobooth yet! Stay tuned.

After overcoming some computer issues last week I am proud to say I have the 2009 Holiday Custom Card collection posted! October and November is the perfect time to get your Holiday cards ordered. That way they’re done early and you can enjoy that much more of the Holidays. Isn’t that what the season is about? Spending time with friends and family is more fun than rushing around worrying about getting cards made, signed, and in the mail. Trust me, it’s way easier to pick out your design and have it customized from the comfort of your own computer desk. You can even do it in your pajamas at midnight once the kids have gone to bed. Once customized your Custom Holiday cards are shipped out directly to your home leaving you with one less stop to make during the busy shopping season.
Below are this year’s examples:
Another way to view these is by going to the proofing section of my website. This is also where you can place your holiday card order. As soon as your session is proofed and loaded to your private gallery I’ll send you an email with the link and password. From there you can choose which card you’d like and which photos you want to include. We can also customize the greeting, family names, date, etc. Also, I know that some of the designs seem specific to the type of shoot, example: wedding or newborn photography. Please feel free to look closer and know that even though those are the images shown doesn’t mean we can’t customize that card design with images from your family photo shoot. I wanted to show a diverse sample of the many reasons to have custom cards printed.
Most of my clients have gotten a sneak peak at the card examples but in case you didn’t here are the specifics:
- Press Printed Cards are not photographs, but are produced on state of the art digital printing presses. The printing facility uses real liquid ink, not toner like a color copier as some other printers use, to give the cards the look and feel of a very high quality printed piece.
- Cards are double sided (more room to show off your gorgeous photos!)
- Size is 5″x 7″
- Ordered in increments of 25
- Pricing includes envelopes
- There are multiple paper finishes available (matte, glossy, watercolor paper, and pearlescent)
- Custom cards are $50 per box of 25 cards.
I am always excited to place orders for the Holiday cards. I love designing/customizing the cards with images we’ve taken in the past year and waiting to see the end product. Everyone loves receiving them since they’re such a personalized item. And the other good thing about these cards is all you have to do is address the envelopes and you’re ready to mail. No need to sign the card since we’ve already customized them with you family’s name.
Holiday cards are available for all clients that have had a session or Wedding within the past year. If your session was earlier this year and you’d like to order cards please drop me an email and I’ll be happy to reinstate your gallery for you.
