One of my goals for 2009 is to have the chance to shoot
with more fellow photographers. I feel that what better
way to learn and continue to grow than shooting with others!

So a couple of weeks ago when Val
called me up I jumped at the chance to help her out and shoot
with her!

What a day! There was snow on the ground and an amazing feeling
in the air.

Here are a bunch of my favorites form the day!

Because I was the 2nd shooter i decided to play all day!
I pushed myself to shoot out of the box and I have to say
I am going to shoot this way all the time! Just sitting back
and taking it all in.... not rushing!

I love this shot of the bride getting ready!

Ahhhhh when window light comes across your lens... magic!

As usual my fav the shoes!
2 different views!

These next 2 really show her personality!

So Val and I were scouting out spots for photos and we
both spotted this piano! What immediately came to both
our minds was pretty woman! You know that scene in the
bar when she is on top of the piano!

Lastly I love these two photos just so real and a moment in time!

Thanks Val for letting me come and play!
Be sure to check out Val's photos here!

"9 YEARS AGO TODAY was the beginning of our courtship. We were both working at Big Y where I was a cake decorator and Romolo was "the pizza guy". We became very close and our friendship quickly turned into something more. Our first date was on Valentine's Day of 2000, and we are still inseparable!" -Maria

Meg and I had the distinct pleasure of photographing Maria & Romolo's wedding on VALENTINE'S DAY!!!!! And what a day! This wedding was filled with laughter, tears and so many emotional events! At many points of the day both Meg and I had to look at each other and wipe the tears away from our eyes! I have not my eyes filled with tears at a wedding in along time.

Our day started with Maria at the hair salon she use to work at. Chit chatting and catching up before all the chaos of the day.

We then headed over to meet up with Romolo and the guys! And little did we know we were to be greeted by 11 guys!!!! A dream!!!!!! 11 guys all looking to the 9's and bottles of liquor....what a time!

We started out having some fun with the boys.....

Then I had some Romolo time.....

After the guys we meet up with Maria and the girls...

Lets start with some details....


I LOVE THESE SHOTS MEG CAUGHT during the getting ready!


Okay now here come the tears....

Sigh..... After Maria gets dressed she turns to her mom and says....
"Momma... Thank You for everything...."
The moment was so sweet and sincere...
Oh gosh here they come again the eyes welling up with tears...

Amazing door light...
Amazing Maria!!!!!

Let's get married!!!!!

Maria & Romolo time....

First dance....

and An intimate moment with her dad....

The night went on rocking with amazing lighting and music from my man Anthony from Sound Spectrum!!!!

Thanks Maria and Romolo for having Meg and I!
We had sooooo much fun and now for your slideshow.....enjoy here!!!!

in....especially with my new 85mm lens!!!

Or any other wedding industry vendor, for that matter?

A few wedding bloggers have banded together with this short survey to find out what YOU are really looking for when you visit wedding vendor websites. We won't record anything about you other than what state or country you are from - we don't even ask for your email address so no spam or anything like that. And the best part is: it only takes a few minutes of your time.

Click on the link below and answer nine (9) quick, easy questions about different design aspects of wedding vendors' websites--please and thank you. Feel free to take a quick peek at our website before you complete the survey.

Again--you'll likely see this link on other blogs and sites but please take the survey only once. If you have additional comments on the subject, please feel free to email me with those and I will share them with the other wedding vendors who are participating. We can't wait to hear what you have to say!

Wedding Vendors: If you would like to participate, just copy this post to your blog and email Emilie Duncan the link at emilie {@} emilieduncan {.} com - She will send you the results once we have closed the survey in March).

One thing I noticed that I have NOT been doing is blogging about personal stuff!

So one of the blog resolutions for this year is to
blog more about what is going on with me!

So to start the new year off right I want to talk about my
quest for getting fit!

Now some of you may know I was a rhythmic gymnast for
about 12 years of my life starting in elementary school
all the way through freshman year of college... my ankles
and feet just got tired... to put it best.
Here is a couple of pics of what rhythmic gymnastic is...


All those years I trained hard and never thought about eating
right or working out to stay fit. It was just like a job you
just did it.

Well 25 came and so did beer ha! And then 29 and 30 came and
so did a thyroid problem. And well the weight did too! And now
the quest to get it off has been well about a 1.5 year quest!

But the light is at the end of the tunnel! Today i reach 142!

Now the entire reason for this post is about how I got there not
just by eating right... well not all the time my wine calls me at
times and so do my hot wings at Eli's.

But I do owe it all to my trainer Merle and his gym Crossfit USA!.

You need to google crossfit to really understand it but in the few
short months I have been crossfitting I have noticed a HUGE difference
in my body shape and feel tighter so you def should try it out!

But I am so excited even more for Crossfit USA because they are now offering a BRIDAL BOOTCAMP!

It's an 6 week amazing bootcamp 3 days a week! So by the time you get
down the aisle you look tight, lean and even more amazing than you do!

I HIGHLY recommend looking into it! But for a short time only
Crossfit USA is offering a $100.00 off the bootcamp!

Just print out the coupon below or mention my site and get $100.00 OFF!!

Now how could you go wrong!

So check it out and tell Merle you know me!
