Wedding Group Photo

Serena really wanted a photo of everyone at her wedding.  They chose to keep their invitation list very small, only their wedding party and immediate family, so it was very important to the bride and groom to have a keepsake photo that included everyone who celebrated their special day.

I worked on this one for quite a while.  Group photos can be tough.  So many people... so many opportunities for one person to have their eyes closed, or one person's hair to be blowing in her face... Let alone the little ones, who are trying so hard to just stand there and be patient, bless their hearts!  :)  It usually involves piecing together several photos for the best end result.  I think this turned out pretty nicely.

Just Cuz...

That handsome guy who is NOT the groom?.... yeah, he's mine.  :)

This was my favorite...  :)

Williams Wedding (first previews)

So... I'm just going to be honest, and say it....  I blog for my mom.  There you have it.  OK, that's not really the ONLY reason.... certainly not how it all started.  I thought it would be a great tie-in for my photography.  Then, I decided to do the 365 photo challenge, and that was fun.  But when all is said and done, my mom is my biggest fan, and when I've had a hiatus (or two or three) from my little entries here, she misses it.  I don't really know why... I talk to her several times a week, and she knows perfectly well what's going on with my life.  I guess it's just because she's a mom, and that's what moms do... they enjoy seeing/knowing more about their kids.  How can I really complain about that?

Anyway... she VERY much enjoyed seeing the wedding pics of our beautiful friends, Michael and Serena (Serena, she said you were an absolutely BEAUTIFUL bride, and of course, we ALL agree with that!); and since she's not on FB, I thought I'd post some of the original previews that I posted there first (and I've sneaked in a few more, in fact).  :)

What better reason to blog again, than to show off this ridiculously happy couple, and the highlights of their very special day?  I've had SO much fun working on this album!  I can't wait to get it all finished, so they can see the final product!  :)

Williams Wedding

Sweet, sweet friends of ours were married last weekend.  I've posted several pics on FB, but I'm tired of the stinky quality, so I thought I'd post some recent edits here instead.  :)
