David + Melissa recently wed in a intimate candlelight ceremony in Munfordville, Ky. Held in historic downtown Munfordville added to the romantic wedding . The Ceremony was held inside an old historic building that now houses River Pointe Church. With beautiful wood floors along with an exposed brick walls that created a warm intimate atmosphere for their Friday evening wedding. Surrounded by close family and friends they celebrated the love that had brought them together. When planning a romantic wedding you can’t go wrong with a candlelight ceremony along with an evening wedding, add a old historic downtown setting and it’s pure perfection.

Melissa was blessed to have a good friend and wedding planner to assist in the planning stages as well as keeping things running smoothly the day of the ceremony. Wedding planners are a great way to help take some of the stress out of the planning. They can do everything from securing and locating your vendors such as DJ, Baker for your wedding cake, your photographer just to name a few. They generally have a list of contacts of individuals they have worked with in the past to insure your getting the best for your big day. When it comes to the day of the wedding planner they work closely with you to make sure that things flow smoothly, by helping with rounding up family for those important must have shots, to making sure your other vendors arrive on time and know where they need to be.

I want to thank wedding planner Danette Skaggs for her assistance throughout the wedding day.

To Jerry McBride for being an awesome DJ who kept things moving and created a perfect atmosphere for lots of dancing for all the guests.

Thanks Melissa and David for letting me be a part of your celebration.

New Year New Goals

New Year New Goals

WOW where did 2014 get off to. Hard to believe that we are just a few days away from the new year. First off I’m so thankful for all the amazing clients that have allowed me to to capture their memories one frame at a time. I’m looking forward to 2015, I’ve got so many new goals that I have set for both myself and my business. It seems every year we look back and reflect on the past year and then try and set goals for the “New Year”.  I know that many times the biggest resolution that many set is to lose weight or get in better shape, seems to be a good one after the Holidays and all the extra goodies that we have so readily available. I know one of my goals is to just get healthier. Sometimes I think in the hustle and bustle of daily life we tend to let things go and take the easy way out. So I’m hoping this year that can be one of the things I work on.

Have you ever thought where the idea of New Years resolutions was started. New beginnings, a rebirth of sorts. The Huffingpost has a great article on the traditions of the New Years check it out here Huffington Post Article.

So what goals have you set for the New Year? Share them with family and friends. Nothing motivates you more then knowing that others are aware of your goals. Think about the motivation we can all get from our loved ones, they can encourage us when we lose track of our goals, remind us of what we want to accomplish, even help us achieve the goals we have set out for ourselves.

So as this year comes to an end I want to thank each and everyone of you have been a part of our lives, and have allowed us to be such important part of your lives. Here’s to 2015 may it bring you everything you wished for as well as everything you need.

Cheers to New Year New Goals

 

 

Rain on your Wedding Day

Rain on your wedding day

Rain on your wedding day doesn’t spell disaster. In fact with a little planning ahead by hopefully your photographer you can be prepared to capture beautiful images even in the rain. Planning an outdoor wedding is always risky, so having a backup plan is crucial. If your planning an outdoor ceremony and reception, plan on having tents for at least the reception, larger tents can serve as a backup plan for the ceremony in a pinch. Depending on the venue you may be able to have a room reserved if it looks like weather will mean a  last minute change.

Communication is the key, working closely with your vendors is the important, especially your photographer. With a little planning you can really make your photos unique as well as fun. Clear umbrellas make great accessories, or for a more classic look solid black umbrellas or white give a timeless feel to your images. For something more whimsical feel try getting colorful umbrellas that coordinate with your wedding colors.

The biggest thing is to embrace the day, the weather, and remember that in the end the important part is that you are married to your best friend, soulmate, and life long partner.
