Jamee & Ryan

I had the privilege of photographing one of my dear friend's engagement session on Saturday. I knew Jamee since grade school and got to know Ryan in high school. These two are sooo much fun. Their wedding is coming up in July, and though I not photographing because I'm in the wedding, I can't wait!
These two were very easy to work with. Both were a little nervous, I think, but they did well. While we were photographing in a parking lot, I noticed a bus parked there and I immediately thought we should take some portraits inside it. I think they may have thought I was a little crazy, but the images turned out awesome.
Hope you like them!

This past weekend both Cheryl and I attended the Professional Photographers of Ohio's (PPO) spring convention in Dayton. It is always a lot of fun talking with fellow Ohio photographers and listening to some highly respected and talented photographers speak.

We sat in many seminars dealing with children, families, seniors and weddings. I think you can always learn more, no matter what you do.

I competed in the print competition this year. I entered 4 different prints and 2 wedding albums. I was very happy to receive 3 merits. Photographers need 25 merits to become a master. Half of your merits come from print competition and the other half from continued education. A few years ago Cheryl obtained enough merits to become a master! It is a hard long process, and I have only just begun!!

All and all it was a fun but exhausting weekend!
