Loren & Greg's Wedding

Most of the brides that I photograph are in their mid-20s, so it's refreshing to create wedding images for a more mature couple like Loren and Greg. Just the interaction between the two of them is so different from the norm. However, if you ever meet them you'd declare they are in their 20s. Loren and Greg are tons of fun, but Loren leads out with a personality that will easily win you over in a second.

All it really takes is for Loren to look at you with those seductive eyes of hers and you're hooked. Apparently, Greg is immune to her glances, so she lights up his life with playful antics (see the rat below). Another wonderful by-product of Loren's and Greg's maturity is that they were unflappable on their wedding day. Whatever little problems that might have developed, they simply didn't let them get in the way of them celebrating their wedding day to the fullest.

When you look at the images below you can see the "fairy tale" romance between the two of them. I don't know of any two people who are more in love and who shared that love with their family and friends on their special day better than Loren and Greg. As a professional wedding photographer I wished ALL of my brides and grooms could take on their attitude as spoken by Loren: "It's our day and we're going to enjoy it".

Loren has the most seductive eyes,
and they really add to her beauty.
Loren's arrival by carriage was a total surprised
everyone except Greg who planned it all.
Look what Greg just gave me!Most folks wouldn't appreciate a rat on their dinner
plate, but this rat has been the subject of many
jokes Loren & Greg have played on each other.

Clemson all the way!

Thanks for an awesome time Loren and Greg. Long live the rat!

Liana's and Ralph's Wedding

Some of my brides-to-be and their fiances immediately become more than wedding clients starting from the first time we meet to discuss their wedding plans. I'm proud to say that Liana and Ralph Etinene is a couple that I absolutely love. It is so neat sharing a relationship with two people who have taken their love for each other to the next level by joining hearts and hands in marriage.

I guess one of the noteworthy elements of their relationship that has impressed me the most is that Ralph is the perfect gentleman and one terrific guy. Now, coming from another guy that's a big "atta-boy". Often during my wedding consultation with a bride-to-be I'll jokingly tell her not to marry the wrong guy. However, in the case of Ralph there's no need to worry, Liana. He's an awesome dude!

By the same token Ralph has married an awesome woman in Liana. Her wit, smarts, and sense of humor permeates every conversation I've had with her and it's a delight to know a woman who is completely comfortable in any situation. It's always a pleasure just kidding around with Liana. For the two of them I see nothing but lots of success in their personal lives and in their marriage. I wish them the best and hope that my images of their wedding day has added much to their future.

Love you, Guys!
