Congratulations Danielle & Carlos

The theme for this wedding was football and this was represented in various ways throughout the day. There was also a pretty lengthy shot list in which we were going to shoot the wedding party in several football formations and situations in a planned outdoor location. Mother nature put here two cents in and derailed those plans and most of the shot list was thrown out the window as a result. This is why the first image in this post is so significant.

The show must go on and although plans were changed, we still had an awesome day!

Congratulations Arielle & Fellipe

This time of year, things are so busy it is difficult for me to keep up with the blog. I have so much material and no time to share it. Well, I am squeezing a post in today. Hopefully, it won’t be too long before the next one.

These images are from an awesome wedding for an awesome couple. I’ll let the pictures tell the story.

Congratulations to Arielle & Fellipe!

Salute to the Bulldogs

As we prepare for our last game of the season and the playoffs to follow, I wanted to share just a few of the thousands of images I captured from this perfect season.

Over the past couple of years, I watched these kids learn a lot about themselves. Last year was a lesson in losing, while keeping your head up and never give up. This year we kept that same attitude which so far has led us to an undefeated season. All the while, exercising great sportsmanship as they all know what it is like to be on the losing side of an important game.

When they would notice the opposing team were bigger in size, they knew they needed to play stronger and faster. They never gave up and this perseverance has helped them grow as a team and as individuals. These victories are a result of every single player learning their responsibilities and doing their job every day.

Thanks to everyone that takes the time to volunteer as a coach. The education does not stop when school is out. Some of life’s important lessons are learned on the field.

I am so proud of this team!

Last Day of Summer Engagement

Never Forget

I would like to take the time to remember all that have lost their lives and to thank all that continue to risk their lives fighting for our country and our freedom. This includes our military, law enforcement, fire fighters and every honest person out there that does the right thing by our American way. You help us feel so safe as we get caught up and continue in our daily lives. Lives that could not be lived without you.

I was fortunate to visit the world trade center site, and after getting a view of the site from church street, we decided to visit St. Paul’s Chapel, which is the place where they treated the victims of 9/11 and where the people that were working around the clock ate and slept. It is truly heart wrenching the stories this place has to tell, but it’s hard to explain as it somehow makes you feel stronger.

God Bless America!

Congratulations Kerri & Anthony

NB Bulldogs Tournament Team

Our 8 year old tournament baseball team advanced to the next round tonight with a big win. I’m so proud of these kids, the way they cheer for one another, pick each other up and trust each other to play their hardest. They played against each other all season long, and now they are all teammates and good friends.
