Abby and Nathan's engagement session

Hey everybody!

Meet Abby and Nate! Mere and Abby have been friends for nearly 15 years and when you get them together it's hard to keep them from cracking old jokes! We're super excited to shoot Abby and Nate's wedding Black Hills National Forest at the end of July! Also, we're equal parts excited and nervous about going white water rafting with them the day after their wedding! Yikes!!!

We met up in Joplin to take a few engagement pictures of them...aren't they cute?? We absolutely cannot wait until their wedding day!!

Talk to you soon,
Dale

Shea and Nick's Conway Wedding: the Real Wedding details

Hey everybody!

Shea and Nick's wedding was a gorgeous as the couple themselves. I love that the couple really knew the feel they were going for, and lit the reception to convey that. Note to brides: Lighting is exciting! Oh boy, that was CHEESY. Seriously though, can you imagine the same images without the yummy color in the background?

Hello ambiance!

Okay, so check out some details from their wedding in Conway, Arkansas.
Hey there, fun ring shot!
Shea's hairstylist is kind of amazing.  She came to the bridal portrait session too.  And I just realized I didn't post those shot!  Ah, dang!  Okay, back on track.  Here's Shea getting some finishing touches...
How cool is this shot - and Mere rocks the processing - as Shea and dad are heading into the chapel
Isn't this chapel pretty?!


I couldn't  fit this into the detail collage... it deserves its own shot anyway.
Nick was proud of this groom's cake... he said he thought it was Benny Awards material.  You know what?  He was right!
Future grooms: this is how you first dance with your new wife.
Look at the size of this cake!
Future grooms: this is how you remove a garter from your new wife.  :)
Doesn't Shea look SOOOO happy?!?!  THIS is why I love what I do.


This is definitely the most adorable shot of the night.  Shea's showing some attitude!






Thanks Shea and Nick for letting us share your wedding with you! 

Talk to you soon,
Dale

Shea and Nick's Conway Wedding: the wedding portraits

Hey everybody!

Shea and Nick - aka the super gorgeous bride and groom - have been waiting so patiently for their blog posts. They had to put up with all that Italy Wedding Workshop stuff (it's sold out now!), and I just want to publicly tell them THANKS! They already have their images (of course!), but it's so fun to see them up here, right?

So, here we go. Shea and Nick, in all their hot-ness. :)

Want to see their wedding images? Come back tomorrow!

Talk to you soon,
Dale

See what I mean? Total hotness!

Ciao Firenze! More Italy Images!


Hey everybody!

Here we go with another round of Italy images taken earlier this year. Woohoo!
Notice, there will be yet another foot shot. We have an addiction. ;)

Talk to you soon,
Dale

This is one of my super faves b/c Mere said she was saying a prayer for our wedding and marriage. Luckily for me, telling a prayer isn't the same as telling a wish. ;)

Ciao Firenze! Italy images on the blog... finally!

Hey everybody!

I'm sitting at a cool little tapas bar in Santa Barbara. It's a quarter till 11pm (after midnight at home), so the blog streak is still alive. :)

Tonight I'm super excited to FINALLY get to show some of my favorite images from Italy from the end of March. Yes, THAT long ago. I cant help it, the blog has been jam packed. It still is, but I figured with the announcement of the workshop (see below, or click the link above), now it the most relevant time I'm going to get.

So, without words, here are some Italy images!
There will be more tomorrow, so come on back!

Talk to you soon,
Dale

Of course, we HAD to get a foot shot or two in there. :)
