Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Blount

Yesterday was the wedding of Miss Sarah Tucker to Mr. David Blount. I have to say I was very excited about this particular wedding. I met David when I was shooting the portrait for the cover of his book, The Strong Foundation. It was during this session that he told me about a little project he was working on for his girlfriend Sarah. A couple of weeks later he brought me a stacks of pictures to scan and fix and print so that they could be taken to a quilter. A little surprise gift for the proposal. A quilt that told the story of them....yes ladies...apparently there is a few romantics left and David Blount is one of them. I felt like I knew Sarah before I even met her after working on their pictures. She is just as sweet as David and working with them was a true pleasure. The ceremony took place at St. Aloysius. The best part about the ceremony was the vows that they wrote for each other. I know David wrote a book...but Sarah's vows were amazingly eloquent. They were so moving! The reception was held at the Cincinnati Music Hall. Here is a little sample of their day.

Girls with some attitude! They were fun!





I love the laughter in this picture. It was taken while David was reading his vows to Sarah.
The party bus and pole! LOVED IT. It was so fun....there was a little pressure for yours truly to get involved. I however being the only one with just water, declined. LOL

Tonight's Senior

Tonight's senior was Neil from Lebanon High School. He braved one of the hottest days of the year without a complaint. This is the first time I have actually met him, although I have watched him perform in quite a few of our school's musicals. He is a very talented kid! I had a great time with him and his mom during his session. Here area a few sneak peeks.

Brandy and Patrick

Yesterday was the wedding of Brandy and Patrick. It may have been cold and dreary outside but you would never know it by looking at these two. Plans for an outdoor wedding changed about 15 minutes before the ceremoney was set to begin. It didn't phase them for a minute, the ceremeny was moved to the reception hall and they didn't stop smiling once. Brandy was just smiling ear to ear through the whole thing. Between the personal vows and the amazing voices of their freinds' singing...the guests (and the photograher) were all a little teary. What an amazing couple! I wish them all the best on their new life together!

Baby Ben

My mom got a new baby yesterday. His name is Ben. He named for Ben Nevis.....the tallest mountain in Scotland. Those of you that know me know that my Mom is from Scotland. Born and raised there. She said he is a little dog with a big personality. So there you go.....the story behind the name.
Anyway, every new baby in our family has to get pictures taken immediately....Ben was no exception. He came this morning for his first official Chapelo Photography portrait session. Isn't he a doll!

Introducing Memphis

This afternoon I had the joy of meeting Memphis. He is the newborn son of an old high school friend and neighbor. His Mom grew up next door to me. You can see for yourself how gorgeous he is! Just like his Momma. He didn't fuss at all during the whole session...I hope he keeps that easy going attitude for his mom and dad's sake. ;)
