This past Saturday we took pictures of my niece Shea. She looked so adorable in all her cute outfits. We had such a fun time with her. Enjoy :-)

Matt & Nikki

On June 20th myself and a great friend of mine Mike shot Matt & Nikki's wedding. Melissa was in the hospital at the time which is why she wasn't able to shoot with me. She already shot a wedding with a ruptured appendix so she had to sit this one out.

We had a great time shooting this wedding. Matt and Nikki are an awesome couple and were very easy to work with. They had a great (big) family too!

Here are some pictures. I LOVE the first one here... so good.


Hello from hospital world.

Many of you may already know but Melissa has been in the hospital for about a week now. She had appendicitis and her appendix ruptured. We had been to the hospital a week before and Melissa was in incredible pain and they told her she had a cyst on her ovary. They were wrong and she spent a week with a ruptured appendix and a swollen stomach making her look 6 months pregnant.. literally. She also managed to shoot a wedding with me.

Melissa is recovering well, thank God. She is expected to be out of here by Wednesday and will have to come back every two weeks for testing to see how her insides are doing. After that, in about 6 to 8 weeks, she will be back for surgery to get her appendix out.

We are both very appreciative for all the calls, emails, flowers, visitors and whatever else I'm missing. Needless to say this was the main reason we've been a little slow on our posting lately.

Here is a picture of Melissa in the hospital. You can tell that even in the worse scenarios she still has a sense of humor.

Dallas & Alicia Wedding

Yesterday we shot Dallas & Alicia's wedding in Barnesville, Pa. The wedding was perfect except for the occasional rain drops and typhoon. Every detail was beautiful as were the bride & groom. The wedding party was great and the most "original" crew we've seen. We wish the married couple all the happiness this world can bring them. We love you and we were honored to photograph your very special day. Enjoy your sneak peak :-)

The remaining wedding pictures will be posted through our clients page on our website in approximately 2 weeks.

Seth Godin = Good

A few months ago I stumbled upon Seth Godin. Who is Seth? Well here is what his website says -
  • writes the most popular marketing blog in the world;
  • is the author of the bestselling marketing books of the last decade;
  • speaks to large groups on marketing, new media and what's next;
  • and is the founder of, a fast-growing recommendation website
Anyone who is interested in business or marketing in the 21st century has to check out his blog! ******

He has many books in store that you can buy as well. I just finished reading Purple Cow. It was one of the best books I've ever read!

Another thing about Seth is that he is one of the few in a position like his that responds to his fans, enemies and anyone who emails him! I read this about him and sent him an email a couple days ago with a business related question and he emailed me back with in 24 hours!

No wonder this guy is so successful. Anywho, thats Seth Godin.

I hope you all had a great weekend!
