Senior Session - Tommy R

Had a great time in the cold air with Tommy. He is a senior at Eagan High School and came down to meet me in Cannon Falls. We have been playing photo session tag all fall and finally got the chance to hook up.

The Watson Family

A really quick pre-Thanksgiving session with our neighbors the Watson's and their family. It was great to capture some family photos, but great to spend some time with our great friends.

Norma & Craig's Wedding

Just a wonderful conclusion to a 2008 wedding season with Norma and Craig at Stonebrooke Golf Club in Shakopee, MN. It was a chilly, late fall day at a beautiful location. We got some shots outside, but planned them out first as it was no place to be standing around while I was experimenting!

It was a really short ceremony and a great social evening. I had the chance to visit with so many great people throughout the night. Including my friend and former student Steph McGhie. Steph and her boyfriend, Chad were the ones that tipped Norma and Craig off to me and my photography. It was great to meet Chad and catch up with Steph too. Thanks for the referral because Norma and Craig couldn't have been easier to work with. What a great day.

Thanks to everyone who trusted me with their wedding photography this season. I am reminded at how blessed I am to be trusted with such a big day in your lives. I hope the work has done justice for you all as to how special YOUR day was.

Thanks much and please enjoy some of Norma and Craig's photos!

West RIver SD Bowhunt

Well here we are actually blogging during the daylight in Meade County, South Dakota...I love the wireless network card about now otherwise Cory and I would just be sitting here looking at each other.

I left home yesterday morning about 4:45AM, got to Ideal Yardware in Sioux Falls about 8:30 and headed west with Cory. We coasted (literally) into the gas station in Mitchell as we had run out of gas about a half mile earlier on I90.

We got to the Weiss Ranch about 3PM in the rain, sleet and horrific winds. We trekked out and walked the south creek into the wind and got into quite a few mulies, one nice buck, but nothing close enough to shoot. Rain had now turned to snow and I dropped my quiver and arrows somewhere on the creek and went back and couldn't find it. Slowly drove over to Roger and Kendra's house and hunkered down.

And here we are...12 inches of snow, 46 mph winds (gusting to 60+) and blinding conditions. We tried two times today to get out and walk, but couldn't even get out of the driveway. Got stuck, pulled it out with the tractor and went to drive around but couldn't see the road.

I guess we could be camping...
