John & Tonya

I'm NOT a wedding photographer. I'm not. I keep saying that and God keeps throwing "simple" ones at me saying "you don't know until you try." Well, 3 wedding's later, I coulda, shoulda, might be a wedding photographer. It's not something I want to specialize in, (because let's face it, it's A LOT of work) and I have so many irons in the fire. But after 3 weddings, I might be a wedding photographer.

Tonya's been my friend for a long time...well, 4 years or so. Our kids are best friends and hopefully next year going to collage together. So when she threw together a "quick" wedding, I volunteered to photograph it...'cause that's what friends do. ;)

She's waited such a long time to "fall" and John's a great guy that treasures her...and she deserves it.

Perfect. Getting married in cargo shorts, flip flops and a cool white shirt. My kind of wedding!

Not to mention on the lake...about as laid back as you can get and yet, still classy.

If we ever decide to renew our vows...this is how I want to do it!

Where oh where...

If summer flew by, fall has been nonexistent. Not really, but it's been a whirlwind of activity. From band and competitions to senior pictures, a wedding and a collage tour, I'm not sure if I'm coming or going. Oh yeah, and a quick roadtrip with my dad. Time is just slipping by for my senior this year and as much as I love the young man he's turned into, I miss my little boy. Please don't slips away in a heartbeat.

So as another day/month closes, 3 beautiful sunsets from the last 3 months.

September, around the corner from the house and letting a teenager drive me, so that I could hop out quick to capture it as it was fading quickly.

October, on my way home from a long weekend at Emmaus, God gave me a special gift. Again, pulling over quickly as the light fades. (I'm good at this!) :)

And finally November, just last week, in my backyard. I think I left dinner on the stove to run out to the back field to grab this gem.
