Despite Joe’s many faces that he makes, as a couple Joe and Melissa are more fun than crazy. Chill even. I had the opportunity to be a part of their wedding day and despite the sun being out in full force and the pressures of having to move out to California in a few days, they kept it cool under the tux and wedding dress ūüôā In fact, with dandelion balls blanketing the grass and the occasional lazy summer breeze, we had our own unique snow that day. It didn’t make the day any cooler temperature wise, but it certainly added to the already beautiful day!

Holy batman! It’s almost been 2 months since my last update. ¬†But what better time to post since tomorrow is my college roommate and good friend Taft’s wedding? ¬†We did a pre-engagement shoot last year, but we decided to have a engagement shoot as well.

If you know Taft, many of you know that he is the king of corn.  Not everyone can appreciate corny jokes, but I must admit that every once in awhile he comes up with a good one.  With his marriage one day away with a lovely soon to be wife, I look forward to many baby corn in the future!

I won’t be wielding a camera tomorrow since I have the honor of standing. ¬†Now if you’ll excuse me, off to the rehearsal I go!

“Let’s go by that pot smoker place!” ¬†What? ¬†While our shoot didn’t involve lighting up any reefers, Amy’s suggestion did help determine where we had our shoot. ¬†With the location down, the question that remained was: when?

After a long spell of unseasonably cold and rainy weather, Mother Nature overcompensated and on the day of the shoot it was pushing 90’s. ¬†Take that and throw Paul & Amy into the mix and you know it’s gonna be a HOT shoot. ¬†But despite the energy-sapping heat, apparently all it took was a look at my sweat drenched shirt to make them feel better. ¬†Hey, I guess I’m happy to help =) ¬†But temperature aside, I had a great time with them going around town, discovering photogenic locations, and having fun with together. ¬†See for yourself!

May has been a crazy month in terms of weather and definitely not an easy one in terms of photography! ¬†One day it’s windy and cold, some days it’s raining, and others it’s scorching hot. ¬†When we started the esession in St Louis a little over a week ago, the clouds looked like they were ready to burst. ¬†And burst they did!

What do you do when it pours..?  See below for the Gunny & Lynn way!

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Jacob & Areum is the word “friendly”. ¬†They’re just a sweet and friendly couple and you can’t help but feel excited for them =) ¬†I feel privileged to be their photographer and we got to do our first shoot together in Chicago for their e-session. ¬†It was a blast¬†and the chemistry between them just radiates from these pictures!

Jacob’s co-workers gave him a hard time about leaving work early for a photo shoot that day, probably laughing at the idea that Jacob thinks he’s a model. ¬†I won’t say one way or another, but I will let the photos do the talking ūüėČ

5.22.2010.  Mark the date and be sure to congratulate them on their wedding in just a few days!

A couple days ago, Joe flew in from sunny California and we did a shoot in the heart of the Windy City. ¬†And man did the city stay true to it’s name. ¬†Despite being a week into May, it was in the 40’s and windy! ¬†Not sure what happened to summer? ¬†The world must be coming to an end… but it’s all good because at least they can be married by then!

Despite the chilly weather, Joe & Melissa were all smiles and laughs. ¬†I can’t wait to see how they’re like in a few days when they’re not freezing =) ¬†But until then, here are some teasers of the soon to be husband and wife!

Warning: Large post with many pictures!

Ever since Cassie and I have gotten together, I’ve been getting to know her friends whom she grew up with on the East Coast. Spanning over many years, the friendships are deep, they’re fun, and they really know how to have a good time! =) From this group, I had the privilege of meeting Rachel and her boyfriend, Peter. We went on some double dates and I even did a portrait shoot with them in New York City last summer!

Fast forward to this past weekend – Peter popping the question! ¬†He’s been planning this proposal for a few weeks and boy did it show from the many extensive emails outlining his plans. ¬†Cassie and I returned to NYC this week so it was a perfect excuse to go on another double date together! ¬†His original idea of us ice skating together in Central Park was ruined by 70 degree spring weather, but we can’t complain about that =)
