Well the end of 2013 is approaching, but before the year is out we want to share some weddings we photographed this year that we didn’t quite get to sharing with you.  To kick us off, we’re starting with Julia & Jim.

Julia & Jim got married at a great venue in Saxonburg, PA called Armstrong Farms.  They were a sweet couple (take a look at her walking down the aisle).  It was a great day with them and we used as much of the unique landscape and barns there as we could.   Also, all the colors and details were so vibrant and great, it made for a gorgeous wedding.  Congratulations you two!

Natalie & Travis’s Spring Wedding (and Vintage Cars Too) – Muscatine, IA

July 4th, 2013

We just wrapped up editing this gorgeous wedding with Natalie & Travis recently and really wanted to share the day with everyone. First of all, what a sweet and loving couple they are.  Throughout the wedding day, we were able to see them take care of each other in a lot of beautiful ways that […]

 

We just wrapped up editing this gorgeous wedding with Natalie & Travis recently and really wanted to share the day with everyone.

First of all, what a sweet and loving couple they are.  Throughout the wedding day, we were able to see them take care of each other in a lot of beautiful ways that made us like them even more.

Their wedding day took place on a piece of Travis’s family land in Iowa, and it was such a gorgeous day.  They incorporated his love for vintage cars and Natalie’s do-it-yourself ideas and bright colors.  I would say more, but I ramble too much and it’s best to let the photos show you their day.

Congratulation to you both!

I wanted to share a few of my favorite portraits from a session with pianist Jeeyoon Kim.  She holds a DMA in Piano Performance and Piano Literature and has played venues “across the globe… including Graves Recital Hall in Columbus, Ohio, Wheeler Concert Hall at the University of Evansville, GloVil Art Hall in Korea, Judson Park Auditorium in Cleveland, and at the Mozarteum Festival in Salzburg, Austria.”  She has a long list of accomplishments, so just look here if you want to hear her play:  http://on.fb.me/UkVxWD

Anyways, we had a great session and I even got to hear her play as we took candids that day.  She’s amazing!!! Plus she took me out for Thai food after, so that’s always nice.

Take a look 🙂

So, it’s now the time of the year when we show you SOME favorites that we compiled from 2012.  Now, are these the best photos we’ve taken in 2012?  The true answer is that these are some of the best ones, but since we were looking through tens of thousands of photographs today, we absolutely and positively missed a BUNCH!  Even right now, I’m remembering some photos I forgot to put on here.  So, if you don’t see your wedding on here, rest assured it’s because we skipped around hunting for photos, and didn’t even get through half of our 2012 weddings today.

2012 was our busiest year ever!  By far!  Which was wonderful at times, taxing at others, and overall great news for Rachel and I.  Really, we love photographing weddings, as hard and as time-consuming as it is, we still love doing it.  To make every one of them a unique art experience for our couples to experience their day.  To put the care into it we would as if it was our own.  To boldy go… er.. ahem… 🙂

So, thank you to those who chose us this year, for seeing value in this art we choose to do, that they entrust us with their wedding day to capture it and bring our craft and care to it.  Thank you!

Finally, here you go, SOME of the best of First Blush Photos’ 2012 weddings.
