Wilmington Wedding

I have weddings every weekend this year, but, as a second shooter, I hesitate to post most of the photos due to copyright issues and photography etiquette. Most of my job involves getting detail shots and following the groom around as his personal paparazzi. I absolutely LOVE taking photos of details, and the wedding this weekend had some great ones! I just had to show them off.

Family Photo Session

These are my cousins children. The oldest is graduating from high school and his mother bribed him into doing photos with me. The youngest is a natural model. He was workin’ it!

Beautiful, Scary Cairo, Illinois

Cairo was a bustling port city at the southern most point of Illinois from the late 1800’s to the 1930’s. Its decline began when two bridges were built over the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, making the necessity of river boat traffic obsolete. It experienced a further blow with the race riots of the 1960’s. You can still see the splendor of its earlier days in the beautiful architecture of its government buildings and churches.

My husband and I have been wanting to visit it and take photos. We finally had the chance earlier this month.

Small Winter Wedding

My friend texted me Wednesday and asked me to help her with a wedding on Friday. It’s the winter. What other stuff do I have to do? So of course I said yes! It was a very small wedding at a cute little venue near my house. I assisted with lighting and corralling family for photos, then I took some detail shots.

We’re in the down time for wedding season, so I’ve been getting busy with some new designs for my Etsy shop.
