Sam & Aimee – Brunwick Chapel Ft. Smith

Aimee and Sam were married at the Brunwick Wedding Chapel Saturday. It was a rainy day outside, but the love inside warmed everyone.




Chris & Rachael

Chris & Rachael are from Arlington, Texas. I  had fun following them around a park there in Arlington taking their engagement photos. I’m honored to shoot their wedding at the gorgeous Green Oaks Wedding Chapel in May. Congratulations and blessings on your upcoming wedding!

The Bonneville House in Fort Smith, Arkansas

Brian and April were married at the Bonneville. It was so sweet. I have been teary-eyed at weddings, and this was one of them.

Brian & Kellye

Brian and Kellye won the Free Wedding Photography Contest so I went down to Camden, Arkansas to shoot their wedding in January. Two sweet families joined in celebrating the marriage of these two special people and saw them exchange their first kiss. That’s right, their FIRST ever kiss. Pretty amazing and cool I think.


To have and to hold

First kiss


Besides pastoring a church, Brian’s dad is a very nice cartoonist. Congratulations Rambo Baby and Bandanna Boots! I’m so glad I had the privilege of doing your wedding.

2010-2011 Weddings and Questions You Should Ask a Wedding Photographer

I have two June weddings and a July wedding booked for 2011. Yippee!  It’s exciting to have clients in Arkansas and Oklahoma who love my work and recognize the fact that I’m booking popular dates rather quickly.

After checking out some “professional” photos of weddings this last year on people’s social networking sites and their prints, I’m taken aback by what people consider good photography. Maybe I’m too critical because I know what “good” photos are supposed to look like, or maybe people are just trying to be polite, but if you’re shopping around for a wedding photographer I’m offering you some MORE tips to make your decision easier. You may also check out my previous posts about Choosing a Wedding Photographer Wisely and What I Think Makes a Good Photographer.

Bridal Extravaganza 2010!

Bridal Extravaganza is Sunday, the 31st of January, from 1:00-4:00. Brides get in FREE.

It’s being held at Kay Rogers Park this year due to the overwhelming crowds the last few years. The ladies at Unforgettables Wedding and Party Rentals always try to bring in the most local vendors of any bridal show, so you’ll be able to see local talent not only in photographers, but cakes, catering, wedding attire, DJs, venues….There will be BIG giveaways and fashion shows.

Merry Christmas From our Blog to Yours!
