Archive for July, 2010

We can’t believe that the first time we talked to Tristine about shooting her wedding was in August 2009. Time has definitely flown by very quickly! At that time, we thought, “Wow, she is way on top of things.  She’s already looking for a photographer for her end of July 2010 wedding!”.  After meeting with her, we knew that it would be a lot of fun to be a part of her wedding day.

So, Tristine’s wedding is happening this weekend, July 31st and we did this engagement shoot last Friday, July 23rd.  The reason for it is because Tristine’s fiance, Tim, has been away for work in Afghanistan.  He had just returned, I believe, a few weeks ago.  They picked Cathedral Park for the shoot location because their first date was the Portland Bridge Pedal.  Pretty sweet, right?!

Anyways, it was so much fun getting to know Tim and Tristine during their engagement session. From the way they interacted, we could tell that they were so madly in love with each other. They are both witty, funny, and very intelligent.  Tristine told us that they’d need some time to warm up to the “paparazzis”, but boy, was she joking  :-)  They looked absolutely comfortable in front of the camera.

Tim and Tristine, we can’t wait for this Saturday.  Until then, hope you enjoy these photos as much as we do.

Lindsey asked me to do a family session with her and her family when she found out I was coming to Tulsa, OK. Since it was also going to be the twins birthday soon, it was the perfect time to do a family session. I was really worried about the day being so hot and humid, but thankfully, it wasn’t that hot when we started our session and the trees at the park also helped a lot. You can also see more photos of them on Facebook.

Will, Lindsey, Riley Maddux, and Kayden, hope you guys like the photos as much as I do!

I have known Gayla for a long long time; since high school to be exact. She was a guest teacher who taught my drama class how to do a “vogue” pose and boy, she was really good at it :-)

Gayla met Mick while she went on an outback trip in Australia and Mick was the trip guide. I am not sure how they met to be exact, but Mick was so smittened that he flew to the US to be close to her. Mick and Gayla got married and had 2 kids, Jack and Ben, until a few months ago when they adopted Laila Abeba from Ethiopia! You can read more of her adoption story here: http://3continents1fam.blogspot.com/

Hopefully from these photos you can see how well the Gowers got along with Laila and how much Laila is already a part of her new family. You can also check out more photos on Facebook.

Gayla, we love your family so much! Can’t wait to see you all again.
