One of my favorite places, to watch animals and the people that are watching the animals!

It’s a known fact the wedding industry has been changing for a few years. We have our own camera manufacturers to thank for that. It was a beautiful love affair that ended in the making of consumer end cameras that could make pretty pictures with little or no effort.

a shot of the family pet
and born from that is what I call the 500 better or better known in our industry Uncle Tom’s or Aunt Lydia’s.
It’s family or friends that got a wonderful consumer end camera for a holiday, snapped some nice snapshots and decides to enter the world of Professional Photography.
I’ve not joined the band wagon of attack on this phase of our industry but have instead lent a helping hand to new photographers to better their skills, because I know as well as most Pro’s know. that camera without knowledge will become a lethal weapon in a dark chapel or reception hall, a moving bridal party or a white balance that may need to be adjusted.
Lisa Nikole decided to help…
and what Lisa Nikole has found out is… So many couples are happy and content with family or friends shooting their most important event. They save money, they get decent images, why not?
I’ve got pages of why not on my list, but again… Sometimes you have to know when to leave the game, or change the game.
We are always thinking of our couples and we know what is important to them, after talking to many of our couples and listening to people on Facebook or Twitter what couples care about most now are those ever so important portraits of themselves.. the bride and groom. THAT is what matters most to them, so that is what we are going to give them.
Lisa Nikole knows that one thing a new photographer can’t do is pose, a new photographer has no clue how to balance lighting and a new photographer does not have thousands of dollars of equipment that can turn their snapshot into an amazing 20×24 canvas above your fireplace.
What Lisa Nikole knows is she can!
Here is what Lisa Nikole is going to do… Go ahead and let your family and friends shoot your wedding and reception.
Let Lisa Nikole shoot your portraits. You’ll save money and still get what you want. So keep looking at this space, we’ve got some information coming up that will show you exactly what we mean… till then.. enjoy a few images from our past weddings!
Ever wonder how powerful Facebook can be? Do you think why bother or people are just wasting their time? Think again, young grasshopper, think again!
I spend a lot of time on Facebook and Twitter, I chat and respond to various post. It’s what I do and it’s networking, and yes it’s family and before Melinda gets upset… it’s fun also!
I believe that music can move us, it can direct our frame of mind, it can make us happy/sad/angry/mad and so on. Music affects us and the right music can move us to new depths.
Rick Hall posted a song on my FaceBook a while ago, that song really moved me, so much so I found the artist, looked up his website, listened to all his songs and bought his music. Amazing is a word I use a lot but this music was such that it moved your soul! The song is called Baba Yetu (Our Father) and even though most of it is in Swahili, you can still feel it in your soul, I know I did.
Baba Yetu comes from an album titled Calling All Dawns. The album is done in three movements: day, night and dawn. The twelve songs are sung in twelve different languages including Mandarin, hebrew, irish, Farsi, Maori and more. Sacred and Secular sources are used for the texts of the songs including: Japanese Haiku, The Torrah, The Bhagavad Gita and many more.
I’ve had music in the past mean a lot to me, but this album surpassed them all and I knew I had to contact Christopher to purchase rights to his music to use on my website. Through a couple of posts, Chris and I came to an agreement and you can now listen to Christopher Tin’s amazing music on my galleries.
Chris is an amazing person and artist, he’s way mega talented and has many many achievements in his musical career. Some of which are a demo song for Apple’s Garage Band and Startup sounds for Microsoft’s Surface operating system. His music has been performed live and by man orchestras around the world. He’s also an active composer of music for films such as CIvilization IV and Pirates Of The Caribbean (HELLO JD!!!)
I’m so blessed and thrilled to have struck this new friendship with Chris and all because one man, posted on song on my Facebook wall. Talk about networking!
I’ve not met Chris yet, but whenever we are in the same towns at the same time we are gonna hook up for lunch. Can’t wait to meet such an amazing person!
