A Wedding Photographer with Nothing to Do!

Hi Neighbors!

Perhaps you will remember that in a previous post I mentioned we went to Chicago for a friends wedding.  I don't think I told you what happened though.  We called a day or two before and asked if they had a photographer, because if not I was willing to take pictures for them, and record the ceremony.  They did not have a photographer, and appreciated that I would be able to take some photographs for them. 

We headed out Saturday morning, the wedding was at 5:00 pm.  I was asked to arrive at the church by 3:00 so we could take some pictures before the ceremony.  We reached our hotel at 1:00, grabbed lunch and headed to the church.  My 14 year old daughter came as my assistant.  At 3:00 we walked in the door.  The pastor and his wife were there, along with their daughter in-law and her 3 year old daughter.  She was the flower girl and was getting her hair done. 

While I waited for the bride and groom to appear, I took a few pictures of the dining hall downstairs, that was decorated for the reception.  I managed a few shots of the decorations in the church and the guest book.  At 4:00 I was still waiting.  The bride had called with a small delay, but the groom was not heard from.  At 4:30 the bride raced in to change into her gown, and I was able to assist her.  Quarter of and still no groom!  He walked in with 10 minutes to spare.  Needless to say, this photographer did not get any pictures taken until after the wedding.

I really enjoyed taking the pictures, and would love to do it again sometime.  As a matter of fact, the young lady who caught the bouquet said she would love to have me take pictures at her wedding. Only one problem....she is not even engaged!

I am participating in a blogger campaign by Bucks2Blog for dc photographer and was compensated. However, the views and opinions are my own.

I hate to be photographed, but that may be because I've never had anyone professional do it! I looked at some of this guy's photos and they're really nice!

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
