Indiana Wedding Photography: Justin & Julia’s Wedding

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

First let me start off by saying that this was a special wedding for me to photograph.  I not only photographed Julia’s sister’s wedding, but I also have photographed their family pictures, and both Justin and Julia’s senior pictures.  I think it is safe to say that I am officially their family photographer.  Big thanks for trusting me with these special moments in your lives.

This first shot was a flash back to Sarah’s wedding day.  Julia’s mom gave her something special that made her think of her grandpa.

This post should be all about Justin and Julia but there is a certain someone that kind stole the show at times.  Meet the ring bearer, isn’t he cute.  This was before the wedding.

He was excited about being the ring bearer, but when he realized everyone was staring at him he got alittle scared.

And then he started to cry, don’t worry there is more about him later.

Julia loves snow, she wanted a winter wedding, but after her sister’s wedding was during a snow storm and the temperature was -5 or so Justin said no way.  So he made up for it by having fake snow when they exited the church.

Being a ring bearer is hard work and requires a nap.

After his nap he felt like dancing!

And now for my favorite part of the night.  DJ Kyle Hinds pulled out his box of props.  It was so much fun, I had a hard time taking pictures because I was laughing so hard.

And one last time, here he is again…..

And here are my mom and dad.  They were out on the dance floor dancing the “anniversary dance”.  I love when Kyle does this.  He asks that all the married couples get out on the dance floor and then he asks that the newlyweds leave and then the couples married for less then 5 years, less then 10 years, etc.. until the couple that is married the longest is left.  Well….

that couple ended up being my mom and dad.  (they are so not old enough to be the “old married couple”)  Kyle had them give some marriage advise to the new couple.

Indiana Senior Pictures: Liz from North Judson HS

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

The sky was constantly changing all evening.  It was like a show was being put on for our photo shoot.  These next two pictures were taken within about 15 mins of each other.

Liz works at a vet clinic and loves animals and they love her too…

During the session Liz asked me, “Is every session this much fun?”  I had a hard time answering that because I am thinking what to say because I wouldn’t consider what we had gone thru “fun”.  Let me try to quickly fill you in on my evening with Liz.

- The horses broke the fence that day and they were in the pen we would be shooting in, so we had to move them to the other pen. (not easy, but we got it)

-While getting Liz’s horse saddled her best friend Sam got stepped on by the horse.  (she was wearing flip flops)  So I played nurse for a few seconds and then both Sam and I had to get back to helping Liz.

- While shooting Liz and her one horse another horse knocked the broken fence over and came in the pen with us and thought it would be fun to pick on the photographer.  LOL

-In between takes I put my light stand in the barn and tried to put it out of the way.  I knocked down a feed sack and I had a pile of dirt dumped on me.  I just stood there for a second and said a bad word (not like me) and then dusted myself off and helped Liz.

-We couldn’t get Liz’s chaps to zip up.   If you are someone that has worn chaps before you understand.  It isn’t easy every, but when everyone is sweating and miserable it is rough.  Sam and I got them zipped up though, we were a great team!

- The dogs, well they acted like dogs.  LOL

-We all were sweating big time it was so humid out.  I actually had Liz run back home before we headed to train museum to freshen up because the poor girl was a mess after dealing with horses and dogs.

That is most of it in a nutshell.  Did Liz have fun?  She said she did and that is all that matters.  Her mom I know didn’t have fun dealing with the dogs, but I think she enjoyed watching her daughter have fun, Sam got stepped on so I am thinking even if she had fun that kinda ruined her evening, and you know what, despite all the craziness I had fun too, and we got awesome pictures!!!

Since Sam got stepped and still sucked it up and helped her best friend out she get the Photography by Jayme Best Helper Award.  Thanks Sam for your help, I know Liz appreciated it and so did I.

Starke County Indiana Super Seniors Class of 2011

Congrats to all 57 Starke County Indiana Super Seniors Class of 2011

Indiana Senior Photographer www.photographybyjayme.com

TO VIEW THE PHOTO LARGER PLEASE CLICK HERE or you can go see the big picture in person at the Starke County Library in Knox (across from the Knox middle school)  It will also be on display at the 4-H fair and then will make its rounds to 1st Source Bank and to all three schools.

Last night at the Starke County library in Knox we unveiled the big picture that will go on display around the county.  In case you are wondering how the kids are chosen… there are 20 students from each school picked by their principal.  I asked the principals to give me to top overall students.  I want kids that are active at their school in clubs, sports and that are doing well academically.  This is a huge honor to be a part of this elite group.

My mom snapped this picture of me after I took the black cover off and I thought I did a good job looking like one of those girls on the game shows so I thought I should post in hopes I get spotted by a talent scout.

Courtney posed for her mom’s camera with the big picture, so I had to get a shot of her too.  She is pointing to herself.  She cracks me up.

I want to say big thanks to Judy Caudill and 1st Source Bank for being a big supporter of the Super Senior Project.  They donated Two $50 savings bonds.  I donated a small scholarship and the winners were chosen at random because all the student are deserving of winning.

Starke County Indiana Super Seniors Class of 2011

Thanks to all the students and parents that came out last night.  The library said there was approximately 70 people with our group.  Since there were a couple people I was unable to reach to let them know about the event I will allow the students that weren’t there to pick up their copy of the photo at the studio.  You must call prior to coming to pick it up.  574-867-6776

I worked hard to get this sweet smile.  I am good at being a dork and making farting sounds. (Boys always smile when you make fart sounds)

In case you didn’t know Kenzie is Brandon’s girlfriend.  Well one of them, he has a few (he is such a stud).  Him and Kenzie have been playing together since they were less then a year old.  They will both be FOUR in a few days.  Crazy.  Time is flying by.  I have a ton of super photos of the two of them together, if I have time I will put some more on facebook later this weekend.

PS  Jay- it isn’t Brandon’s fault, I made him hold hands with your daughter.    You have to admit it is so darn cute.  Don’t worry I won’t make them do this when they are 13.  Well, I might try but I bet they won’t hold hands then anyways.

PSS My kid needs a hair cut.
