Columbus Bridal Expo

A great big thanks to all of the people who stopped at my booth today at the Columbus Bridal Expo! It was a fun day despite how hot it was in the building.

Many apologies to those who got there towards the end after I'd run of out my materials. If you're interested, post a comment or send me a note from the contact page on my web site, and I'll send you the PDF version!

Fully exhausted from a full weekend, I'm blogging without any photos or multimedia today. Just a note, if you're on Facebook (and really, who isn't?? I even got my reluctant husband to finally join!!)) do a search for my Minister Images Photography page and become a fan!

In the spirit of my friend Carrie's wedding this weekend, a bit of early 90's rap...

"Word to your Mother."

I had the opportunity today to shoot one of the owners of Vera Bradley for my job at Kappa. It was really fun and they all were so great. What a cool company! Thanks to Amy & Monica and Kristin, of course, who is building my career one shoot at a time!

Rehearsal Dinner Videos

My friend asked me if I knew anyone who could compile some photos and songs into a video to be shown at her rehearsal dinner this weekend.

So began my latest adventure. I had so much fun putting this together that I'm adding it to my list of services as a "perk" for clients!

Here it is in the low resolution version for the web...

Monday, Monday

This weekend was a lot of fun, some of my friends from Pittsburgh came to visit and we had a really great time! Additionally, I finished the staff portraits with a few families and senior pictures. We had fun and got some good images. As always, a few of my favorites...

I am starting to book 2009 weddings and portrait sessions. My ad comes out on the Knot on Wednesday and I'm headed to the Columbus Bridal Show at the Aladdin Shine Center this Sunday.

I also have an ad on the Weding Wire network which works directly with Martha Stewart Weddings. Check out my testimonials!

Catch me while you can!

Ben edited this video. it's pretty funny. Check it out on You Tube. It's his first "movie", who knows, someday it might be a feature length film on the big screen.

A photographer's work never ends...

It was a long weekend at the Minister household. Friday night was spent watching the Opening Ceremonies, Saturday at Ginger & Joey's wedding and Sunday morning, more portraits!

Ginger & Joey had such a fun wedding, they were totally laid back and easy to photograph. One of my favorite moments was just after the ceremony ended and we took a few minutes to photograph just them together.

You can see more images from their wedding on my Minister Images Facebook page, do a search and become a fan!! Keep checking the blog this week for a slideshow of images. I'm working on posting it.

Another portrait session on Sunday with some co-workers and a neighbor, again, you can see some on the Facebook page, but here is my favorite. Jayson was loving his moment in front of the camera!

Finally, of course, we've spent the last few days watching Michael Phleps accumulate his gold medals! His sister Hilary is a good friend of ours from our college swimming days. Go Michael!
I've got more portraits upcoming and weddings galore beginning in the next few weeks!

Portraits, Zooey and more...

This weekend I was lucky to photograph three groups of my co-workers and/or their families. It's an ongoing project and I have two more sessions set up throughout August. Marcia, the Thompsons and Brenda's granddaughter were all great models. It was fun to set up a studio in my garage, Ben & I were vaccuuming the cobwebs out! This is my favorite photo from the day.
Ben & I got to see the band, she & him last night at the Wexner Center. It's M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel (costar in Elf) and their band. It was great! She is an amazing singer, check them out if you can. (
Up this week, staff photos (think school pictures) at work and Ginger's wedding this weekend. Look for more photos next week!
