Fickle Fay

Been dying to post something as we took August off this year (just too hot!!!). Even though I have not done any weddings or engagement shoots doesn't mean I am not busy. This has been Tropical Storm Fay week.......a very long week.

At the newspaper we were all set on Tuesday for a landfall near Gainesville. Well it is Friday and we just got our dose. It was a whole lot of nothing around here. Regardless, as photographers we were just foaming at the mouth to shoot. Nothing like being in the fury of a storm and seeing how people respond.

After shooting a horrible car accident today I decided to go out and find something fun and indicative of the community. Here it is. Enjoy

Pyle Family

Funerals are never an event you look forward to. Marian and I were called back to West Palm this past weekend for the funeral of my best friend's dad, George Pyle. I considered it more of a celebration for a man that I have some of the fondest memories of while growing up. Rarely in your life will you ever find such a lovable person with a sense of humor that was just amazing. He was one in a million.

At the wake I brought along my camera and snapped a few pictures of the family and made some fun frames. Certainly not the ideal environment for photos but with everyone together and all dressed up I just could not resist. I hope everyone enjoys this selection along with the others that will be coming soon.

RIP George Pyle- Heaven is definitely a more fun place now that you have arrived.

Wedding- Jeremy and Brie

Not to be cliche' but I think these photos were as hot as the wedding day. Actually it was overcast but oh the Florida humidity.

Jeremy and Brie are just a match made in heaven. They are simply every parent's dream of how they want their kids to grow up and who they want them to marry. It was a pleasure to be a part of their big day.

Got to work my 2 favorite venues in Gville- Baughman Center and Sweetwater Branch. They are just so picturesque and the people involved are very accommodating. It was great working with the experienced DJ crew of Solutions as well.

Never mind the weather joke, these photos are hot so grab a cold beverage and enjoy scrolling down.

Engagement- Joseph and Marisa

Marian and I had a great time at a new venue as we did this session at the Harn Museum at the University of Florida. Before I go any further, this is where I turn over all the credit for making this happen to Angela and Catherine at Avie. The happy couple had their heart set on this location and their immediate response was no.

Word for the wise, never tell Angela no. Her and Catherine worked the phones non-stop to make this happen and it worked. The staff of the Harn was extremely nice and I truly enjoyed adding a completely new venue to our belt.

I really enjoy these photos because they are so different and have such a contemporary quality to them. Hope you agree.

Way to go Avie and great job Joseph and Marisa!
