Janine with her soon-to-be sisters in law πŸ™‚

Mike’s fave! ❓


SUCH fun bridesmaids! πŸ˜€

Though Janine’s Dad is no longer with us… he was absolutely 1000% a part of the day.

Hi Mavris!

IT’S PHOTO TIIIIIIME!!!!!! Let me tell you… this day was HOT HOT HOT! How her hair didn’t completely collapse is beyond me! The hair stylist said that morning “this hair isn’t going anywhere!” Now… I’ve heard that before and have not seen the best results. I will not lie… I wasn’t nearly as optimistic knowing the crazy humid/hot forecast. However, it looked as amazing at the end of the day as it started. Wow to that!


Yeah, this place card photo rocks… I mean, just in case you didn’t notice. HA! I have NO shame…

First dance…

Top 5 most amazing best man speeches ever. I might even go as far as saying that it was #1.Β  HE HAD PROPS! In his hand… just in case you can’t tell… that’s a stripper heel. You can only IMAGINE what that was about!!! My favorite ❗

The sister/brother dance…. it was perfect. Here’s the difference between how I shoot the reception events…

…and how Mikey shoots them. πŸ˜€ SUCH a great capture!

Mother/Son dance.

The Gamma Phi girls from Indiana State University… πŸ˜€

I almost didn’t blog this because I was in it. Mike and I are pretty good at shooting the same event from different angles but still staying out of the photo. However, it seems that I didn’t have much shame and stepped right into his shot.Β  I decided that I liked it… regardless of my presence. FURTHERMORE… I’m a part of the day anyway so… whatever, there I am πŸ™‚

What was our favorite part of the day?
1) laughing with the bridesmaids at the salon… strike that… ALLLL DAYYYY!. 2) When Scott first saw Janine… his expression was perfect! 3) right before Janine and Scott were announced into the reception…. Janine gave a genuine and personal toast just to us. Janine, you’ll never know how much that meant to me. Thank you. 4) Bo’s toast… ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? HILAAAAARIOUS! WHen he busted out the Gas America cups I nearly peed myself. I guess Scott LOOOOVES the huuuuge styrofoam fountain soda cups from there.Β  Bo’s final “raise your glasses” moment of his toast… they all raised them with the famous cups.Β  When the speeches were over… they were gathering up all of the props to clear the dance floor when Scott runs over to the person who’s cleaning up the cups (I just happened to be standing right there) and he says in all seriousness, “Don’t throw those away…!” I laughed… he said… “Bobbi, they’re the best ever… you need to drink out of one… you’ll see why!” 5) dancing with the wedding party with the “Bobbi” dance that I invented that morning. It’s not a pretty dance… so, don’t get your hopes up πŸ˜€ This wedding party rocked it OUT with theΒ  “Bobbi” 6) knowing that I have the best clients in the biz… not all would be okay with their photogs dancing… ours however, ours rock. πŸ˜€ Thanks Janine and Scott!

Much love friends πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Oh, PS. for the record… If I do dance… it’s to only one song. I can’t resist me some BOOM BOOM POW! orrrr… Britney (don’t judge me!)… orrrr… Meatloaf (Though Meatloaf isn’t as common as one might hope!) I promise you… I’m not just at the wedding to party it up!


That photo on the right πŸ˜€ I was showing off my amazing tan. πŸ™‚ If you’ve ever heard me say “my legs haven’t seen sun since the 7th grade” you know now I wasn’t joking, here’s the PROOF! You’ll need shades if you’re hangin’ with me! PS. wearing shorts SOMEDAY is on my healthy train bucket list. That’s kind of a BIG deal (its’ been 17 years… are you KIDDING me!?).

I REALLY have NO idea what I’m doing here… but, it made me laugh when I came across it πŸ™‚

The famous “Bobbi” dance that I invented that morning. I have NO idea what came over me… but I was feeling it! How do you do it? WELLLL…. you collapse your entire body… pretty much letting go of all muscle control and just wiggle/jiggle.Β  And if you’re REALLY feelin’ it… you can jiggle yourself up and down. Yeah, you can be jealous… it’s the coolest ;). The ONLY person making the right face in this photo is Amy… the girl right next to me. You not only have to let go of the muscle control in your body… but in your face. Let me tell you… it’s a PRETTTTTTY dance!!!!! HA! thanks new friends for being good sports with my goofiness πŸ˜€ You guys are the best!

HA!!!!!! LAUGH WAYYYYY OUT LOUD!!!!!! Could I BE any more of a mutant mini person?!?!! I put this up on our Facebook page and someone said, “well, maybe she’s just very tall” uhm… she’s probably 5’10”. Yeah… that’s tall… but not crazy. Me… I look RIDC!!!! Her butt is seriously level with the small of my back. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! AM I REEEEEEALLY THAT SHORT?!!?! Wow to this. Regardless… Amy, thanks for dancing it up with me despite my vertical impairment πŸ˜€

Unboxing it up!

OOOOOOKAYYYYY…. I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M POSTING THIS!!!!! But it’s TOO good NOT to! We have new mustache/lips/glasses on sticks photo props for our unboxed booth…. Scott for some reason had one of these in his back pocket all night. I saw it and couldn’t RESIST taking a photo with it! I asked him to do this… him knowing NO idea that this was in his pocket nor what I was up to until I showed him the photo on the back of the camera. The response? A hearty laugh, high five and a hug πŸ˜€ See… told you we had the best clients.

PS. Sometimes I put up photos of us that most photographers/clients would file into the inappropriate file. Yeah, it probably is. BUT, when I start to doubt that I should be putting these kinds of images on our blog…. I always remind myself that it’s a GOOD thing for our biz. I may turn a LOT of people off… but we’re turning all of the right people on to us. Make sense? So, if you saw the above photo and rolled your eyes… that’s perfectly okay. But, if you saw it and let out a hearty laugh and wanted to give me a high five… email us… we’d love to photograph your wedding! πŸ˜€
