Engagement Photography leads to Great Wedding Photography

Pat-a-cake

Engagement pictures for a fun couple.  I was trying to think of a pose for them on the floor so I suggested this children’s game but had no idea they were experts at it.  They played  for about 20 minutes it seemed. Truly a fun couple who enjoy  each other’s company.

Question?  What is the name of this hand game?  Is it Patty Cakes, Pat-A-Cake, or something else?

Bridal shower – Another Opportunity for Family Portraits

Courtney and Terence

Friends and family gathered in a local hotel for a bridal shower for Courtney in honor of her upcoming wedding.  I was the photographer for the occasion.    Not far from where the shower took place was a beautiful setting with great lighting, a beautiful red couch, and nice texture on the walls and floor – the perfect spot for family portraits.

I seized the opportunity to take more formal pictures of the bride-to-be, her mother, aunt, the bridesmaids and flower girls while the shower was going on.   Towards the end of the shower the soon-to-be groom and the fathers arrived and I was able to get pictures of the complete immediate family.

A good day – not only photographing the shower I had a chance to do some nice impromptu family portraits.  Wonderful couple, great family!  Wishing Courtney and Terence many years of happiness!
