Aimee & Nolan - July 12, 2008

I always find it interesting how brides find us. Or in this case, how we find the bride. During some weekdays, I photograph the architectural interiors of houses as they are getting ready to be placed onto the market. I photographed the home of a woman who stated that someone in her office was getting married and that she was looking for a wedding photographer. I left my card and days later, I received a call from Aimee. Aimee was looking to get married sometime between late July and the end of August. She asked me which Saturday dates I had available and at the time -- the only Saturday free was July 12th. Without hesitation, Aimee said, "I'll take it!"

The Shelton family opened their home and their hearts to us and made us feel right at home. It was an honor and a privilege to be a part of Aimee and Nolan's wedding day. Nolan looked very sharp in his Marine uniform and Aimee looked absolutely stunning in her long flowing wedding dress. Congratulations to both of you and we hope you are enjoying your new home together!

Angela & Hunter - July 6, 2008

Angela and Hunter's story of how they met is so unbelievably sweet. They met almost four years ago at Clark Community College. Angela walked into class a bit late and when Hunter saw her enter the classroom, he knew right away that he wanted to get to know Angela better. Over the next few weeks, Hunter tried to strategically position himself in such a way as to have an opportunity to strike up a conversation with Angela. The two spoke from time to time but Hunter was looking for something to really break the ice - a chance to get to know Angela even better. He noticed that she oftentimes came to class with gum. So, Hunter picked up some Extra "Polar Ice" gum and mustered up the courage to truly pursue Angela. And thus the romance began...

For those of you who are not familiar with Extra "Polar Ice" gum, it is quite distinctive in its bold turquoise colored wrapper. Angela and Hunter used accents of this color throughout the entire theme of their wedding. From the bridesmaid dresses to the groomsmens' vests, from accents on the wedding cake to the decor at each table -- colorful reminders of Angela and Hunter's unique first encounters were visible throughout the entire day. In addition, as guests left the church for the reception they were treated to some Extra "Polar Ice" gum. What a unique and fun way to celebrate the union of two truly great people!

Morgan & Joah - Engagement Session

Morgan & Joah have great style and Holly and I are really looking forward to their wedding in October of this year. They are getting married at the Hotel deLuxe. The hotel's design and detailing is based on the architectural and decorative arts of the 1920's through the 1940's. Their wedding is sure to be a treat with plenty of great photo opportunities. We met up with the couple recently for their engagement session and had an absolute blast. Here are some of our favorites from the day:
