John and Shirley Newlyweds

October 29, 2009

On October 17th I was part of a very special day, the marriage of John and Shirley. It was my goal to capture the feelings they had for each other and the love between them. I am not going to post their ages as you are only as old as you feel and I think I can say that neither John nor Shirley felt a day over 19 on that day. I would like to congratulate both John and Shirley as well as their families for an opportunity to love again.

Sarah and Lee

October 21, 2009

Back in September I photographed the wedding of Sarah and Lee Patterson. Here is a preview of their day.




The ceremony was held at True Light Internatioanl Ministries in Griffith, IN and the reception was held at The Chateau in Merrillville, IN. The day was coordinated by Javina Lyles of Memorable Moments Event Planning.

The Zwierz Family

October 16, 2009

Here are some of the images from the Zwierz Family at the beach. These are from the video slideshow in the previous post. They spent alot of time at the beach this past summer and wanted to have a family picture taken at there. I took the opportunity to capture some video of the kids playing as well as some candid images of them playing in the sand and incorporated them into the slideshow.




I recently photographed the Zwierz Family having fun at the Beach. I decided to use the new video capability of my camera and shoot some video to work into a slideshow. I like the look and feel of the video segments. They remind me of old home movies shot on 8mm film without sound.

Ashley and Darvell

October 6, 2009

Ashely and Darvell were married in a small cermony back in July. At that time she was expecting her fourth child, Darvell who was born the first week of August. I have some maternity portraits that will be posted soon and will soon be doing Darvell’s first portrait session.

I got a few minutes during the reception to photograph the rings and the flowers. I put Ashley in the background and just let her relax.

I took advantage of a moment in the hallway as Ashley was waiting for the Ceremony to begin.

Ashley visits her boys before the ceremony. We were barely able to calm them down and look at the camera to get this shot.
