Paul & Amy Bodie’s Wedding

Monday, September 19th, 2011

Every wedding is special. When a man & woman say “I Do”, the possibilities are endless. It’s the beginning, I’ve heard someone say, of a small civilization. A family. This years weddings have been rich. By rich I mean full of life. Our most recent wedding, Paul & Amy’s, was extra special. I’ve known Amy’s family for 20+ years. Watched her son grow up and become a man. And now to see her marry a man who so obviously loves her with abandon is a crazy blessing. Following is just a snapshot of what happened. Enjoy!







This surprised me & Mr Cooper. Ha!

Thank you Amy & Paul for the blessing of seeing you united in marriage. Praying God’s best for you two.

The reception venue was at The Meridian. It was lovely.

The following pictures are from our photo booth. This was our first attempt! We had been wanting to offer this as an option for awhile and Casey e-mailed us about two weeks before the wedding asking if we could do it. Well, it rocked.

 Above was the flower girl. She was the queen of the photo booth.

We always are always learning, even on the job. One of the notes from this wedding was bigger photo booths. The groomsmen were a riot.

And the bridesmaids were brilliant!

We REALLY ENJOYED being a part of Casey & Lamar’s wedding day! Yes, we say that about all weddings. We love our job!

Thanks for dropping by. If you enjoyed please share!

Casey Mueller’s bridal portraits,

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

A number of months ago we did a portrait session with then Casey Singer. She is now Mrs. Casey Mueller! The bridal session was fabulous! Helen and I were trying some new ideas. Following are a few images from that evening.



The following image was taken as she was climbing some stairs. I liked the texture of the veil & the way the light was falling.

Partial silhouette.

We will end with laughter. This bridal portrait session was a blast. Part of the joy of portrait photography is the making of new friends. It was a pleasure to get to know Casey & her family. Their wedding pictures are soon to follow.

Noel & Justin, Semper Fidelis

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

Last week we had the privilege of hanging with Noel & Justin for a few hours. We took some pictures and she shared how they met. Following is their story and some photographs. Hope you enjoy!


“I’ve know Justin since high school.  He was a senior, I was a freshman. He was my first crush, and of course he did not know this. He joined the Marines after graduating. While in the Corps (4 years) God transformed Justin’s life.”


“Justin received orders to Ellington Field at the end of four years. Moving to Ellington was a big blessing for him and his family, they live in Dickinson, Tx. After his move he began attending  my church, Calvary Chapel. This is when we reconnected. : ) We would talk & share stories from the past four years after church every Sunday. “

“…the more we shared what God was doing in our lives, the more we fell for one another. Now, we did have some help. I was at my best friends house and Justin’s sister was there. I mentioned to her how I had a big crush on her brother when we were in high school. I said this to her with strict instructions not to tell. She told him, and added that if he did not ask me out he would be making a big mistake. At the same time, my best friends mom said Justin was a great guy and we should go out. He asked me out.”

“I must say, like most girls I had a list of what I wanted in a guy and he met most of them. The important ones. He is a Christian. Check. He loves his family and gets along with them. Check. I later added that I wanted him to want to pray with me and read the Bible regularly, or a Christian couple book. I prayed I would not be the one to bring this up, that he would. I prayed this while dating Justin. And, in no time at all, Justin looked at me one day and said, “hey, if we want our relationship to truly be stronger… I believe we should pray together every day before we part, even over the phone. We also need to set aside time to do a devotional.” I was speechless. To this day we pray together and are studying through ‘Crazy Love‘ by Francis Chan.

Justin has decided to be a career Marine.

They are a perfect fit.

“I’ve never been more confident, this amazing man, God has placed back into my life after four years away, is the one.”

“I will spend the rest of my life with him.”

Check out “Crazy Love” by  Francis Chan.

Lake Ouachita State Park, AR

Monday, July 18th, 2011

OK. This IS a wedding photography blog but we do love to talk about the adventures we encounter. The next blog will be about our latest engagement session. Cool! Now, about our adventures on Lake Ouachita (pronounced wosh-i-taw).


We’ll keep this post short. Share a few pics & stories.



There is one story that really stands out. Racing the storm.

On day three we rented three tandem kayaks. Each of us had one of the boys. My sister-in-law was with us. The trip out was probably one of the most pleasant experiences ever. We made a few stops on the opposite shore looking for a place to swim. We found a nice place about a half mile from the marina (picture below). We disembarked, broke out a lunch and began to enjoy. It was GREAT! That’s when it happened. Thunder. We wrote the sound off to some baby boomer on his Harley. Ha! Denial! Strait across the lake… in the direction of the marina, the storm approached. And with thunders best friend, lightning! Wow. You have to understand, it took us the better part of an hour to get where we were. We were newbies on kayaks! What added to our since of panic wasn’t just the fact we might be caught in the middle of a lake, ON KAYAKS!!, in a thunderstorm with lightning dropping all over the place. Our tent was uncovered. Who in the world wants a wet sleeping bag? So, we raced the storm. It took 20 minutes & two big blisters to get across the lake, in a head wind to boot! It was a miracle. My oldest was sitting up front dragging his hand in the water during the race, I was like dude! It’s absolute bliss to be a kid. We made it. With about 15 minutes to spare. That with God’s help. So we packed up and went on an excursion to the Blakely Mountain Dam.

Following are a few pictures. Enjoy!

Camping is never complete…

I wonder what the joke was?

Again, if you do not get out. Consider it.
