It seems like forever between the seasons. I shot my first wedding for the year last weekend. Wedding was at St Mary’s in Appleton and the reception was at Homestead Meadows in Appleton. The bride is “the girl next door” really, well she lives across the street from me. My son also stood up in the wedding. I did my best not to embarrass him. Here are a few photos from the day.
Isn’t it Spring?? Did I miss something? We had a wonderful ice storm and coming home from work all the trees looked beautiful, or at least the trees that didn’t come down with the ice. When I got home I grabbed my camera and headed down to the industrial flats in Appleton. I took a few photos and heard this train coming. I literally had to run to catch the train, no really!
Every now and then I do get to go out and take photos for me, just for the fun of it. When I first started taking classes in College I did a lot of night photography. To this day I still enjoy it. Here are a few shots from last night. The first is of the Marcus Theater in Kimberly. They have lots and lots of neon and it always photographs great. The second is from downtown Appleton. This stair has always intrigued me especially at night. Oh yeah and one more thing, I love night shots in Black and White.
Last Week I had the pleasure of photographing Lindsay and Tom’s engagement photos. We had a great time walking to the different areas and getting to know each other. They laughed at my bad jokes, they laughed with each other, all around a great shoot. I always enjoy seeing how my couples relate to each other and knowing this before the wedding helps me on the wedding day.
As some know, during the day I work for Image Studios. The other day I was at the Kohler Design Center, a beautiful place with tons of ideas for your kitchen and bathroom. One of the displays that they are known for is the wall of toilets and sinks (actually they are called lavs in the bathroom). Sometimes when we are shooting we have to wait for the client to get back to us for approval. Sometimes this is quick and other times, well lets just say not as quick. Here are a few shots from the Design Center
