This is probably my favorite ring shot ever.
Gwen and Jake got married this afternoon. I’ve known Gwen for a little over five years and I don’t think I’ve seen her happier. Jake is a lucky man!
I had a really lofty vision for last week’s entry in the Photographers Showcase but realty took over and I just didn’t have the time. Excuses. Excuses.
As with the “rough” theme I tried to convey both rough texture and rough motion. With “green” I went with color and environmentalism. This photo was taken at the Downtown Tower Grove Farmers’ Market. I even rode my bike to the market to take the picture.
I was surprised that there weren’t more photos of produce entered… and I was even more surprised to learn I took the top spot in the professional division. Kudos to the student and amateur divisions! They took all the over all top spots.
I’m pretty sure these to ladies had a lot to do with planning the shower. 😉
Sometimes my favorite shots are the ones I get when we are on our way to take photos…
All the pictures from the shower can be found in Client Galleries. The password is Ashley’s dog’s name… remember? Here’s a hint: “Like the soup.”
This photo isn’t exactly from the bridal shower…
Ashley hired me to shoot her bridal shower at Pheasant Run in O’Fallon. It was a great afternoon filled with tons of smiles and laughter (my kind of people). After the shower was over we headed over to a restaurant where we met up with “the boys” including her fiancé Dan. Dan is a great guy and it’s clear Ashley can’t wait until their wedding in September. The tough part about Dan is, he does NOT like having his picture taken. When he finally agreed to step outside for a few minutes, I will admit I was a little nervous.
I know Ashley is excited to see her pictures from the shower and I planned on posting a “Just One” photo from it, but I think she’ll appreciate this one instead. Look for the rest of the sneak peek later this week.
Oh, when photographing a man who does not like having his picture taken… let him keep his beer!
