Monica and Chad E-Session

This cute little couple has the pleasure of having Tina (one of my Gals that shoots for Big Smile Photo) do their wedding on Nov 3rd. (I am going to be in Mexico shooting yeah!) They were fun and I got to shoot in Rogers Arkansas at the home of their Videographer, the husband wife team of Cineast films. They had a cute little place in the country with some land and horses. It ended up being a great spot. These guys really put out some great work. (you can check them out at cineastfilms.com) I had a chance to chat with them for a bit and get the inside scoop on the wedding video industry. Thanks again for letting us use your place it was fun and great to finally meet you. Hope everyone likes the pics.

Sara and Jeremy

We have had several sarahs this year and probably a few to many jeremys, But never a Sara and Jeremy together until now. And what a pair! These guys were great. Sara used to work with my mom at a local private school and Jeremy is the grandson of a pretty famous evangelist Kenneth Copeland. God really had a plan to bring these two together. Sometimes its when you arent looking that God that someone in your life. Not only are they so nice, man are they hot. I have yet to go through that many of there photos because we have been so freakin busy, but here are some shots that just popped out to me. There are tons more where these came from. They had a beautiful ceremony out at Prayer Mountain with a tent reception outside on the the grounds.

Jordan, DKNY, Fall Out Boy and, Teen Vogue

What do all of these things have in common. Well through an interesting series of events... Jordan is a local gal that i have photographed before Her dad is pretty good friends with some good freinds of mine. Jordan is Miss Teen Missouri. Somehow she got connected with Teen Vogue. Pete Wentze (the lead singer of Fall Out Boy) is coming out with a Clothing Line that is through DKNY called "Clandestined Industries." Pete has choosen Teen Vogue to be one of the primary marketing avenues for the new line. Teen Vogue showed Pete some of the images that Cody and I shot for Jordan last December. Shortly after Jordan recieved a box of cloths from Teen Vogue and Pete with instructions to get more pictures. The Final usage of the images not complelety known, but i am told they will be used for advertising and promotion, etc. To be honest I not sure i care that much. I dont get a chance to shoot as much commercial stuff as I used to. I miss it sometimes and really enjoy it when i do. I only had about a 30 min window for light so it was quick and i departed heavly from my casual hands off approach to lighting but is was fun. Here are a few of my Favs.

Brooklyn and Paul

Why would any body from New Zealand want to get married in Ozark Missouri, USA. Just ask Paul Roberts. I imagine his answer would have something to do with a hot blond gal named Brooklyn from Nixa. As pretty of place as the Ozarks can be i think his vision has been clouded with love. But never the less, they were a nice good looking couple. Paul and all his mates were great (love those accents!) And Brooklyn looked stunning. The rain even let up for a bit allowing me to get some great shots on a nearby road. This road is just down the street from my house. The rain and cloads and mist from a nearby creek just made my day. here some of my favs.

Tina Hamilton from Big Smile Photo is actually shooting there wedding. (lucky her). These guys were fun and told me up front there were up for anything. So I took advantage of their willingness and by the end of the shoot they were soaking wet in a fountain making out. Here are some of my favs.
