One of the great things to being a wedding professional is the ability to see a family grow.  That’s why I was so glad to hear from Heidi when she called and asked me to take Carson’s 1 year old photos.  I hadn’t seen Heidi in some time and was glad to catch up with her on life and her two sons.  It was a treat to meet Carson for the first time and the first thing I noticed was how similar Carson looked like his dad Chad.  It’s almost a spitting image of Chad and Carson was a superstar for his first photo session.

Just like his older brother Mason, Carson loved being in front of camera and was just a photogenic baby.  Every pose that Heidi and I for him, he nailed and best part of the shoot was the candids of Carson just being Carson.  Whether he was playing with his toys or eating his cupcake, Carson was a natural and was great to work with.  I can’t wait for the next time I’m able to shoot Heidi and her family

Caroline and Rob were married on March 23 at St. Rosalie’s Church on the Westbank and they held their reception at the Board of Trade in New Orleans.  The was a great day and we started it off with their prep and both Caroline and Rob seemed calm and easygoing.

One of my favorite parts of the day was their first look and you can see at that time they were were ready to see each other.  It was a beautiful moment to watch Caroline make that long walk and tap Rob on his shoulder for them to see each other for the first time in her wedding dress and his tux.  It was a sight to see.

Once that was over and their nerves were settled, we had a beautiful wedding at St. Rosalie and a rocking reception.  Caroline and Rob had the time of their lives on the dance floor and greeting all their family and guests throughout the night.  I couldn’t ask for a better couple to film and wish them a great start to their life together.  Please enjoy their closing montage video above and some photos from their day.

I’m always looking for something extra to do for my clients and hit the wall one day thinking about it.  Then out of the blue, I was invited to a Bridal Shower to take a few photos and then it hit me.  Let’s start covering Bridal Showers.  It felt strange at first being the only guy there, but once everything starts going and I begin filming and taking a few photos it all becomes normal to me.

A few weeks back, Tara called me and asked if I was free for Tanya’s Bridal Shower and thankfully I was.  I was able to meet her mother and mother in law and most of her friends who’ll be at her wedding in two weeks on March 9th.  It was fun seeing Tanya hanging out with her family and friends and she mentioned to me that her wedding is finally becoming real to her when she saw me taking photos and filming her cake and gifts at the shower.  It was there that she was becoming nervous, but also excited for her wedding to Darwin.

I really enjoyed hanging out with Tanya and her family and friends at her shower.  It was good times and just being able to offer something more to my clients is a good feeling.  I can’t wait for Tanya’s wedding in a few weeks to Darwin and it’s going to be a blast.  Please enjoy her Bridal Shower Video above a few photos from her shower below

One of the first things I noticed when meeting Sarah for her consultation last summer was the amount of energy she had.  She was fast thinking, fast moving, and generally thinking out loud for ideas for her own wedding video when I was showing her samples of my work.  I loved the energy that she brought to our meeting.

She had that same energy when I filmed her Save the Date Video with her fiancée Kevin.  It was a gorgeous day to film and Sarah was ready to run and she ran a lot.  One of the funnier moments of the day was watching Sarah try to recreate one of their outings at the park and she just wiped out.  Kevin and I couldn’t stop laughing and we laughed for a few moments.

Sarah and Kevin are getting married on June 1, 2013 and you can view their wedding website at colesgunn.ourwedding.com
