For the past year I’ve been snagging snippets of video with one of my cameras. It’s been something I”ve been playing with, but I’m not sure I’ll get into a whole lot. I’ve been super busy this winter season but, I’m finally at a place where I can do something with this video!

I previously posted a fusion video of my friends Alyse & Dylan and here’s another for my friends Amanda & Jordan…The best part of this video is they have noooooo idea I took it! SURPRISE!!!! I love being sneaky! 🙂

I’ve known Nikki for about 4 years now. She’s and her wonderful family attend my church, Faith Chapel. It’s always such a blessing to capture a wedding and even more so when you worship & pray together on a regular basis! So when Nikki asked me to do her wedding I was more than thrilled! She and Marquis are like peanut butter and jelly, they just go so well together! When you meet them and watch them interact it’s obvious that their souls were ment to be tied to one another. So of course their wedding day was amazing & full of beautiful moments. I especially love that they got married the day after Christmas! All of the decorations were stunning & we got to play a little bit in the snow! (Thanks for braving the wind for me guys!)  The whole day was a giant celebration of two families FINALLY becoming one! Thank you so much Nikki & Marquis!

About a year ago a I purchased a new camera. Not only was it the coolest new thing, but it also had video capability! I played with it on and off through out the wedding season. Most of the time I only had a smidgen of a chance to get video. The pictures to me are FAR more important. Yet at Alyse & Dylan’s wedding I was able to grab some key moments. About half way into the fall the intensity of shooting & editing got a bit over the top. So I took a break and made this for Alyse & Dylan. It’s by no mean amazing, but it was a lot of fun to create and I think it really helps you “feel” what the day was like! Enjoy!

They’re back! That crazy creative group, the Reyes Family!! This is their fifth installment! We spent an hour or so at this great little pumpkin farm! Can you believe little Leland is over a year old in these pictures? It seems like just yesterday I captures his new born photos! There will be even more sessions to come as we have found out that Dylana is preggers with her 3rd child! We’ve already started brainstorming what theme’s to go with, I can’t wait!

What a cool spot! Dylana sure knows how to pick em!

Leland is obsessed with apples! He was all over them that day!

The perfect pumpkin!

Look at those mums! Gorgeous color to go with my gorgeous lil’ models!

Happy Birthday Leland!
