Sarah & Jonathan: Wedding Sneak Peek!

We always love a chance to visit Cedarwood, which is exactly what we were able to do for Sarah & Jonathan's wedding last week. Just like Sarah & Jonathan, the wedding was sweet, layed back, and full of love from their family and friends. Here's one of my favorites of the wedding party!

Next Sweets Event: May 22 & 23

Get ready to have a lot of fun, pamper yourself, and surprise your man. The next Dove Sweets Event is May 22 & 23!

For all of you with summer weddings, Dove Sweets make the perfect wedding gift to give to your husband on your wedding day.

For all of you about to reach your one year anniversary, remember that the first year is the "Paper Year." What can be a better gift to give on paper than a magazine or set of prints full of fun and flirty photos of yourself!

The sessions are already booking up, so contact audrey@doveweddingphotography.com ASAP.
Visit: www.doveweddingphotography.com/sweets for more information.

Unfortunately, those who participated in the March event have not given out their gifts yet. So, we are still not able to share any of those images. We should be able to real soon, so keep your eyes on our blog.

In the mean time, her are some quotes from the girls who participated. I removed names so not to give away any surprise.

"Thanks Whitney! These are absolutely wonderful and I had such a fun time doing it! I can't wait to give them to [him]! Thanks so much!"

"AHH!!! I LOVE them!!!! Thank you sooooo much! I cannot wait to show these to him! I was dying to get them but now I just have to sit on them for a month and try to not ruin the surprise! Thank you!"

"Thank you so much! I love them. [My friend] and I are already discussing doing it again in the future."

Baby Isaac

Jenn dePaula has been my friend since my freshman year of college, way back in 1995. We were both music majors at a small school outside of St. Louis. Jen lived in Iowa and I lived in South Dakota. So, it was natural for us to carpool home during breaks. It’s amazing that we both ended up in Nashville and still see each other regularly. Her husband Marcus is one of my “co-workers” at The Village Chapel. I work with the youth and he runs the sound, video, website and fixes all kinds of things.

Like Whitney and I, Jen and Marcus met at The Village Chapel. They were married shortly after us. We had the honor of photographing their wedding and now, Whitney had the honor to photograph their newborn baby Isaac.

Isaac is the most expressive baby I have ever seen. I’m really not sure what goes on in that head of his. While processing these photos, all kinds of laughter have been coming out of the Dove offices. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as Jen, Marcus, and the entire Dove team has.

The Rescue

For those of you familiar with Dove Wedding Photography, you know about our efforts to work in rescuing the children of Northern Uganda from being abducted and forced into being soldiers. We contribute with our finances and our time through a couple organizations. One, which is Invisible Children.

Since September 2008, the Lord’s Resistance Army has had a renewed will to spread terror by murdering over 600 and abducting more than 160 children to fight amongst its ranks. More than 104,000 Congolese have been displaced since Christmas, in attempts to escape the LRA forces.

Invisible Children, along with other organizations, believe an international effort to apprehend the LRA leader, Joseph Kony, and rescue his child soldiers is the most viable way to end the most neglected humanitarian emergency in the world today.

This Saturday, Whitney and I will “abduct” ourselves, along with thousands of youth and young adults around the world, to bring awareness to this situation. If you would like to join us or learn more about the event taking place in Nashville, visit www.invisiblechildren.com.

Of course we will also be taking photographs for Invisible Children and we will be sure to share those with you after the event.

Dove in Bridal Guide

Every now and then different websites have asked to use images from the weddings we photograph. We are always glad to share these images that we love so much. With much excitement, we found one of our favorite photos in the current issue of a newsstand magazine: Bridal Guide!

A couple years ago we had the honor to photograph Amber Housley’s wedding. Many of you may know Amber from A Delightful Day event planning. She had a gorgeous bouquet created by Fresh By Carry Ann. Bridal Guide’s most current issue features an article on flowers and chose to show off Amber’s bouquet as part of the feature.

I must admit, our image is hard to find in this huge magazine, but we are very excited to be featured in our first national publication. Stay tuned to our blog over the next few months as we promise to show off some more magazine features. We recently photographed cover stories for two magazines that will be released sometime this summer. One was very interesting to say the least, but I will keep you in anticipation as to what it is.

The Beach- The Boys!

Well, I hope you are ready to laugh! Even though the boys actually did play a little bit of tennis while we were there, most of their time was pretending to play tennis while we photographed them! This is their version of extreme sports.

Phil going for it!

Peter looks like he's moving with a jet pack on this one!
Not sure what this means...
They're studs.
Yup, a lot of laughing going on that day.
Sean Smack!
This trick didn't work too well...
We got yelled at after this attempt... but it was worth it!

Poor Peter.... :)

And that is the end of our beach trip, I hope you enjoyed it even a fraction as much as we did!
Be sure to check out Mindy & Phil, Mel & Sean, and Adrienne & Chris' blogs for even more laughs!
