Wedding- Sal and Nikke

These two native Gainesvillians came home from Connecticut to share their big day in the basking glow of Florida with friends and family. That basking glow of the sun escaped us by rain not once but twice for the engagement session although the weather for the wedding last Saturday was about as perfect a day as any and the emotions of the day led to many strong documentary images. We really had a great time working with them and their trust in us to do our thing was refreshing and the results show. Here is sample:

Military Funeral

Yesterday I had the unfortunate privilege of shooting the homecoming for Army specialist
Maj. Alan Rogers who died in Iraq last month from injuries received by a roadside bomb.

I have shot a few of these and they are never easy. I tried to avoid the typical casket photos so these are the two I came up with and they were published in the newspaper today.

God bless Alan Rogers and all others who are risking their lives so people like me can enjoy what they love.

Engagement- Dan and Ellen

This was one of our best ever! We shot at the Thomas Center again but tried to focus on new angles and locations. Marian was on her "A" game with not only her shooting but really led the way with some fun poses. Dan and Ellen were up for everything we threw at them and the results show what a fun-loving personality they both share. This was truly a blast for everyone involved and they are going to have a great slide show at their reception. All I can say is good luck choosing one to enlarge!

Sweetwater Fashion

Here are a few of the images I shot for the Gainesville Magazine fashion article in the December issue. The models were great, in fact, Nikke (the blonde), was the winner of the Miss North Central Florida Pageant that I had the pleasure of judging last year.
