The New Mr. & Mrs. Rice! Such a fun couple!!

They were so funny on their wedding day! Amanda was a doll about me roaming around taking photos while she and her bridesmaids were getting ready! And Joe had the groom and his guys! The cake cutting got a little messy. HAHAHA! I'm pretty sure they both had to get frosting out of their noses.

A snowy engagement shoot.. In April?!?!?!

Welcome to Wyoming in the Spring. LOL  

Ryan and Monica were such good sports. And I do believe Monica enjoyed the snow!! I was a bit unsure how she survived wearing a dress in the cold. And I have to admit I was relieved when she changed to jeans!! All though it wasn't sub-zero, I was still wearing my snow suit. HAHAHA! Joe and I took them up to the mountains for the shoot. The main roads were clear, but some of the snow was even knee deep on Joe! And that's saying something!

Cory and Brandii on their wedding day - filled with laughter and smiles!!

You might remember Cory and Brandii from the engagement shoot where we were photobombed by the puppy, and the rattlesnake. *EEK!* 

When we got to their wedding day, it was SO MUCH FUN!! It was filled with so many smiles, funny faces, when Joe and I got home our sides actually hurt from laughing so hard at all.

It's my BIG day!!! How do I know when to schedule what when?!?!?!?!

Ok, everyone.. I'm trying to sneak this list one in with Joe in town and hopefully I won't get attacked with duct tape!!  Are you ready??  Because this one is a long one!!!!! And it's FULL of USEFUL information!!! 

Joe and I get asked all the time when we are at weddings, "When should we do the first dance?". Or Even when a bride comes and books a wedding they ask "When should you come to start shooting?" Well, hopefully I can shed some light to some with this blog. MOST IMPORTANT thing to remember about timelines on your wedding day is it's a GUIDELINE!! It is NOT the END of the world if something goes awry and gets off schedule!! Second important thing to do is ALWAYS ADD wiggle room one way or the other for special circumstances so you don't have to worry about the small stuff that pops up! It's going to happen.. and its your day.. you don't need to worry about it. That's the job of your Wedding Planner or your Bridesmaids. I will say this... some reason I have yet to figure out, the majority of weddings tend to have a natural six hour cycle for wedding to the end of reception. So for the timeline, we will use that six hour figure. Now on to the timeline... YAY!!!

A Blog post by Joe!! And this one is EXCITING!!!!!!

We were honored last night to be invited to the Wyoming Mining Association and Wyoming Coal Information Committee  fundraiser hosted  by Jordan's Restaurant and Bold Republic as the event Photographers. Thank you to everybody with Jordan's, Pinnacle Bank, Bold Republic, and the Wyoming Mining Association for having us at this event. We felt very Blessed meeting new friends and being able to see our old friends.

Dick and Liz Cheney spent some time signing books and talking to several people and then talked talked and answered some questions in an open forum. They are great people all the way around. Seeing the both of them in an event like this was one of the great moments I'll always remember. And of course there were jokes made about the "buckshot" incident, and you have to give Mr. Cheney credit he still laughs about it!
