A fun "off the beaten path" portrait location in Missouri...

Grabbed a few test shots of my kids while location scouting for "off the beaten path" portrait locations. This is from a waterfall near the highway 125 bridge in Linden, MO ('s pretty close to being under the highway 125 bridge!). These were all shot using my "old" Canon 10d with the 85mm f1.8 lens. Who says you always have to have the latest, most expensive gear? ;) When I'm "playing" I like to use old gear...keeps me fresh.

Mackinac Island...

Just a "few" (LOL) images from our Mackinac Island / Michigan trip last month.

In the lantern room of the White River Lighthouse. It's said to be haunted. The kids thought that was pretty cool. :)

Katia... can't keep that boy out of the sand!

My niece Molly...

A little drive by shooting...(lookout for photographers who never put their cameras down!)...
Yes, as a matter of fact I did shoot this thru the sun-roof, why do you ask? He-he-he...

Probably my most favorite shot from the trip...

I have this woman to thank for giving me such adorable children. :)

My niece Molly -- we have the same birthday. :)

I just love this shot...

No cars allowed on Mackinac Island. :)

Exterior of Ste. Ann's Catholic church. Someday I'll shoot a wedding here. I might even do it for free it's so beautiful up there! :)

Interior of Ste. Ann's Catholic church...

Couldn't resist grabbing this shot...

Dusk at the straits of Mackinac...

Adrianne and John's Wedding

June 23rd, 2007 had to be one of the craziest weather days in the mid-west this summer. Heavy rainshowers rolled in and out throughout the day in between periods of beautiful sun and skies. It also was the day Adrianne and John became husband and wife. Adrianne and John are such a fun, easy-going couple -- just my type! I had so much fun hiking all over Route 66 State Park shooting their engagement session I knew we'd have a great time at their wedding.

Below are some of the many great images we captured on Adrianne and John's wedding day. My lovely wife Maria shot with me -- and she captured both of the great kid shots (below) at the ceremony. Later in the day we took pictures at Des Peres city park before heading to Sunset Lakes Golf Course for their reception. There was a 20-30 minute "sunshower" during the dinner followed by one of the most amazing double rainbows I've ever seen. We had to take time to shoot some fun pics outside during the rainbow (fortunately Adrianne and John and just finished their dinner, too!). Congratulations Adrianne and John!
