Well, during the past month I’ve gotten a bit slow on my blogging due to moving the studio to a new, larger location. For that reason, today I’m going to be posting both bridals and engagements for Luke and Stephanie. Trisha and I photographed their wedding in Russellville this past weekend and will be blogging that event later on in the week.
The bridal portraits were shot at Mt. Nebo State Park, south of Russellville, AR. Stephanie looked so amazing in her gown and wore me out. This girl participates in endurance races, spending endless hours racing over wooded courses,,, even suffering a snake bite and finishing the race. Needless to say, she’s in a tiny bit better shape than I am. She changed her shoes into some hiking sandals and we took a hike to the bottom of a small water fall for some of the photos we took that day.
And then,,, there is Luke. Luke and I have decided, that due to a shared Cherokee heritage, that he and I have a special bond. He is absolutely hilarious and had Trisha and I laughing the entire time.
Watching the two of them together, one cannot help but smile. They make a beautiful couple and seemingly were meant for one another.
Here are a few shots from the engagement session.
I am so anxious to get through their wedding photos and have some for the blog. We’ll have those this week some time.

We’ll be out of the office until Monday, October 22, 2007 to photograph an out of town wedding. We’ll be returning all phone calls and emails at that time.

We recently photographed Sara for her maternity session and were given the opportunity to do something different for maternity photos than we normally do.
Now, with Sara being my niece, I may be a bit biased, but we had a blast. It was so much fun getting to document this major event in her life, but it also made me a little sad to realize that my brother’s little baby girl is no longer a baby girl. We were also lucky enough to have Randy, seen in the second photo, come along with us so that we could also get photos of him with Sara. Too often we’re missing the father in the photographs when we do maternity portraits.
This session allowed us to show a few more than we normally do, so here are four quick picks from her shoot.

These photos are the result of taking a city girl and putting her in the middle of the country for an engagement session. Trisha and I took Misty and Wade to some of the most unsuspecting locations for their engagement session. Once in a while, we would catch that look of disbelief that we were shooting in certain spots,,, but I love the results that we achieved.
Both Wade and Misty were incredibly fun to work with and any shyness they first exhibited, quickly disappeared and their comfort level with the camera increased dramatically. Doing engagement sessions are one of the most important things to me as a photographer, since this session allows the couple to see how I work, to become more comfortable with me and at the same time allows me to find where the couple’s comfort level is. I cannot wait until we photograph their wedding day. I know it will be a blast.
So, Misty. Here are the photos I promised would be up today. I’ll have your full gallery ready to go this afternoon.

At the end of September I got to spend the weekend (and my birthday) with my family in Oklahoma. My niece, Jamie was getting married and I had the honor of being her photographer for the day. Having literally known Jamie since the day she was born, this was a really special day for me. It was the end of one stage of her life and the beginning of another. Being there to share it with her and Andrew was a great experience.
I hope Andrew and Jamie have a wonderful and long life together.
So here are some of my quick favorites from their wedding day.
