You are about to witness the happiest day (so far) of my life in photo form.

I must start by saying I hate being photographed, let alone publishing a zillion of my faces on our blog for the world to see.

Thank God for Molly and her mad skills at making me look half way decent. Literally, thank you, Lord.

But before you browse, I have to tell you a little about our story. : )

 (if you don’t already know, considering half the world knew before I did!)

My lovely Lance & I have been dating for about 5 1/2 years, and not once has he ever been able to keep a secret from me.

I always knew what he was getting me for my birthday and Christmas or where he was taking me out to dinner. He is so predictable.

But he/they tricked me this time! I had asked Miss Molly if she would do a small styled fair themed session of Lance and me last fall for

our 5 year anniversary since we met as the Darke County fair. Adorable, right? Well we didn’t make it happen, so when Molly decided to

finally start planning our carnival shoot in February,

I didn’t really read into it. When I started to get suspicious, they (the secret design team) would smooth it over with ease.

Lance acted totally not interested.

Much, much, much to my surprise, the shoot was Lance’s idea to cover up his proposal at the fairgrounds. You sneaky Lance.

Of course Molly went above and beyond and, with the help of some lovely people, pulled off this amazing shoot.

So as you peek, keep in mind I had no idea what was really happening until halfway through the shoot.

I hope you love it as much as I love him.

(that is.. well.. impossible.)

This is a shoot that Rachel did in the studio last week. Vivian is so sweet, and her family absolutely adores her! I was working in the office, and I could just hear the love in their voicesas they played with her, cuddled her, and even as she drifted to sleep in their arms…. Seeing her Daddy and PaPa so gentle, her Nana and Mama so wonderful, just brought tears to my eyes. And the love she receives, always, is apparent in how content she is.

I am so so behind on blogging, it isn’t even funny. But I wanted to showcase a few beautiful weddings from the 2011 wedding season. Matt & Christy are so connected… to their passion of music, to each other, to their family, to their God. Both of them are teachers, and it shows in their servant hearts. Enjoy their photos, and leave them some love.

02/28/2012 Meet Rachel!

I’m finally back on the blog, and this time I’m not alone !!!

Wow! It’s really been 6 months since I posted to the blog, hasn’t it? How sad. I must say, the time has just flown by. Between photographing my amazing clients, launching Lovely Rentals, and making time for my family, I have to admit that my juggling act has caused a ball to be dropped here and there. This poor blog is one of them.
HOWEVER:
” Where there is a will, there IS a way.” Trite, but true.  And HIS will is perfect! I have been looking for an employee for awhile now, and God gave me the perfect one! Rachel is a super talented, kind, and funny young woman. She is my new portrait photographer, and associate photographer for weddings. I LOVE her, and I have no doubt you will too! We are alike in so many ways: how we see our subjects, the view of our worlds, our obsession for Hot Heads,  and the way that a brand new baby smells so sweet. And yet we are so different: Rachel is not as loud as I am (a good thing, actually!) and she can tend to multitask when I am running around scatterbrained.  She is the hands and feet to my ideas. And we could not be more excited to show you some of the amazing things coming up! Stick around- theres gonna be lots to see!
For now, enjoy some of Rachel’s recent work icon smile Meet Rachel! And read her answers to her little interview below:

 

Me: ” So Rachel, what are some of the things that inspire you most?”

Rachel: “Your children! I don’t know, I don’t like talking about myself. Oh, peanut butter does though. I don’t know.  I don’t want to sound cheesy.”

Me: “Go for it.”

Rachel: (giggles) “My boyfriend’s blue eyes, sunny afternoons when I have free time, my favorite song lyrics, red lipstick, anything and everything romantic and vintage. Umm, a new pair of shoes.”

Me: “In other words, you are fairly girly. Which I love about you. Moving on…”

Rachel: “Wait, I have two serious things to add. I’m not sure where these came from. One is seeing people pray in public, that is inspiring in more ways than one. The second one is seeing the way moms and dads love on their kids. I can’t help but smile.”

Me: ” So, what does your dream future involve, lots of kids, lots of travel….?”

Rachel: “My dream (I’d rather call it my reality) is for this business to continue to grow into something even more amazing, for my man and me to tie the knot, raise beautiful children together, and through it all, be happy always.”

Me: (happy sigh)”Yeah, that sounds just about perfect. So, if you had to choose , which would you rather. Coffee or tea?”

Rachel: “Hmmm.  Depends on the morning. Hot coffee and iced tea.”

Me: “Morning or evening?”

Rachel: “Well, considering my boss is also my neighbor, I don’t get to sleep in a lot. Sad.”

Me: “Bahahah. You make me sound a bit tyrannical.”

Rachel: ” You should hear yourself at 9 AM . It is almost as bad as when Grandpa Brehm woke us up on school mornings… with the TRUMPET!”

Me.”sorry icon smile Meet Rachel! Sweet or sour?”

Rachel: “Sweet!”

Me: “What is your favorite color?”

Rachel: “I can’t just have one. But if I had to choose, pink wins. Hands down.”

Me: ” So, I think it is safe to say, your dream job is photography, right?”

Rachel: “It’s not a dream anymore, it is reality! But yes, I pretty much do have the dream job!”

See? She’s amazing! Call MOLLY DUES photography, and schedule a session with her. We can’t wait to hear from you!

xoxo!

This is Eddie & Lacey.

eddielacey 1 Eddie & Laceys Country PicnicThey met in college, and this is what Lacey had to say about their beginning:

“We met in class where I sat beside him and instantly fell for that perfect smile of his. We became friends by chatting before class and making fun of people in class,  and I knew I wanted to learn more about this man. I wanted to date and “get serious” but he wasn’t ready. We remained friends and when I transferred down to WSU we started hanging out again and this time the tables were turned. I was enjoying college life and just wanted to have fun. Eddie then went off to boot camp where we would write each other letters. When he came home we went out to Max and Ermas and I remember sitting at the table completely tuning out what he was talking about just thinking how this felt so right. And he had the same feeling. We’ve been together since.”  

Their love is palpable, and i love how comfortable they are together. Eddie was only home on leave for a short time, and Lacey wanted to do a fun session that embodied the countryside, and reminded her of her childhood. We went to a family friend’s lovely home, and they played in the field, ate corn and watermelon, and snuggled in her great grandma’s quilt. Eddie is back in Iraq now, defending our freedom. He will be home soon, and in the meantime, their love and courage grows.

i met with Brad & Christy last fall, and from the very beginning, i could see the connection they had with one another. Over Chipotle, they told me how they met. They both worked at Macy’s one sumer,  and their friends would tease them that they were “a match made in Macy’s” They are a perfect match. Beautiful Christy with her sweet nature, and Brad with his infectious grin and obvious adoration for the love of his life. They dated for 9 months, and then Brad asked her father for her hand at a UC game.  On June 17th, God united them in a beautiful ceremony.  What a privilege to be there for it! Congratulations to the Powers, you guys are amazing!

Brad surprised Christy with this little envelope necklace that carries a little note that says, “I love you”. He also added his own “note”.

how romantic is that? be still, my beating heart. he purchased it here.
