New addition to our family!! Welcome Mr. Cade

Joe and I had to make a mad dash to Oklahoma because our daughter had her baby earlier than expected!! And OF COURSE, I couldn't pass up taking newborn photos and other family photos while we were there!! 

We had to show our inner geek and do a few with Cade wearing a padawan braid with the Millennium Falcon in the background. And his Dad, Matt, is a big Superman fan so.. Well, you can see in the photos..  

And there of course were some of Miss Lilly, our daughter Kristen, Matt, and Joe decided to take a quick snap of Kristen, Lilly, Cade and (EEEEKK!!!) me...  

Dallen and Kalli ... and Mallorie TOO!!!! on their Big Day!!!

I just couldn't help myself and  wanted to share a sneak peek of Dallen and Kalli's big day.. and a super CUTE photo of their little girl, Mallorie! Because it was a big day for her too!! She got baptized right after her Dad and Mom got married. How SUPER COOL is that!?!?!?

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!
