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....

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!
