What a gorgeous evening we had last Friday when I was able to meet up with this awesome couple!  I just love when Abby laughs at Adam and I had so many pictures of her laughing, it was hard to choose which ones to post. You can just almost hear her silent laugh in these pictures.  These two had their first date a couple years ago at Swan Creek so we revisited the park right when the sun was just headed over the horizon and this made for some beautiful pictures.  To you both: I am looking forward to next year and a gorgeous outside wedding!

Jake and Jaime

These two tied the knot a couple weeks ago at Wildwood in the heat of the day.  Jaime was my most RELAXED bride I have ever photographed-wow, it was so awesome .  Let’ s just say 20 minutes before the ceremony it poured rain for a good 10 minutes and Jaime didn’t freak out.  In fact, it didn’t even seem that she noticed.  It wouldn’t have mattered anyways because the sun came out and dried it all up before the ceremony.  That will definitely be something years from now when they look back and say, remember when?  And smile. And laugh. And remember the love they still have because that’s what matters in the end. Not if it rained or if it shined bright skies. It’s all about the love that they share and will continue to share. You two are a beautiful couple (my country couple) and I wish you many, many blessings on your journey together.

-Ella & Gage-

June 29th, 2010

Meet sweet and lovely Ella.  She has graced the walls, business cards and blog of JEM quite often.  I was able to go out to Ella’s house for some portraits to celebrate her turning 4 years old the other day.  We also got some shots of Ella’s cousin Gage.  What a cutie!  Of course next to the house was […]

Jamie – Thanks again!  Loved the tour of your new house or rather Ella’s version of a tour.  😮  Congrats again on your new digs! 

I just had to post this picture.  I think it’s so funny when kids pout!

Simply said, Abbey & Shawn’s wedding was a wonderful day all together.  There was so much love, laughter, family and friends that it was hard not to get emotional during the ceremony.  Of course its also hard when the father of the bride had tears even at the rehearsal not to mention coming down the isle and all through the ceremony.  I felt the love for these two to my core.  It was pure joy on the faces of both sets of parents, grandparents and friends and hopefully you see that in this short blog. 

To the bridal party, you were so much fun and to the groomsman who got everyone to skip for the camera, you rock!  Family and friends it was so nice to feel the warmth and kindness from you guys and I loved witnessing all the plain old family love going on.  Finally to Abbey and Shawn, you truely are a beautiful couple on the inside and out.   Your day was not only gorgoeous but what an amazing celebration of your love.  Thank you so much!

We all Need a Little Grace

June 25th, 2010

     I have always had this name association ‘problem’ where when I first meet someone  I immediately think there name should be _______. It could be something as simple as this person’s smile belongs with this person’s name and I fill in the blank (mentally of course)   Then after meeting them and finding out this person’s real […]

   I have always had this name association ‘problem’ where when I first meet someone  I immediately think there name should be _______. It could be something as simple as this person’s smile belongs with this person’s name and I fill in the blank (mentally of course)   Then after meeting them and finding out this person’s real name, I struggle occasionally and let the name that I mentally picked out for this person slip. If that’s ever happened to you from me-please forgive me, I’m working on it!  Though for this little girl, I spotted her over a year ago at church when she was just 6 months old or so. One look at this sweet, lovable face and the name association was easy: Grace.  She is every bit the name.  Sweet, sweet Grace! I had a great time photographing her and Jana and Grant- You guys are an awesome family and I am so honored that you chose JEM to take your family pics.

I have to write in here that Wildwood is  the place to go if you want your flesh to get eaten ALIVE!
