Jenna & Stephen

Gather ’round, my dear Friends of Blog, for I’m about to tell you a story.  This story took place in the not so distant past, in fact, it was just a little over a week ago.  This story involved a lovely lady and a gentle man, that we will call Jenna & Stephen!  The location for this story…a quaint little village that we will call Bismarck, or B-Town, or the Capitol of the great state of North Dakota.  Any one of those terms will work.

I suppose you’re wondering why we were in B-Town with this lovely couple, arent’ you.  Well, it wasn’t just so we could eat at Texas Roadhouse & stop by The Walrus for a couple of drinks afterward (even though that does sound good.)  Nope.  We were there for the incredible fantasticalmagical wedding of Jenna & Stephen!  Wahooo!

We had an absolutely wondrous time with not only the Bride & Groom, but with each & every person that worked with us to make this day so mightlymellow and gorgeous!  Truly, one of those things where we just show up with some cameras & stuff like that, and they make all of the magic happen – we just stand back and let the good times roll.  And you can take that to the bank.

Seeing as how I’m now just rambling on a bunch of non-sensical stuff, I think it’s time that we put a lid on all of these words, give a huge MuchLove & ManyThanks to Jenna, Stephen & their lovely Wedding Party, and to tell you…the good People of Blog to – Enjoy!

Laurie & Scott

Folks, in case you didn’t get the memo, we’re back in wedding season now.  We’re going at 120%.  There’s no stopping us.  I know, you’re probably sitting there thinking, ‘Man, self, it just seems like we just got done with last wedding season.’, but you’ve got to get over that and get with the program.  We’re already going full-throttle.  I’m not kidding around here, my good peeps.  We’re all in.

What’s that you say?  You need some proof to back up these word that I’ve thrown your way?  Well, how ’bout you just relax for a second there, because I’m going to weave a little yarn for you.  It’s about an absolutely wonderful couple that goes by the name of Laurie & Scott.  What I’m going to tell you is this.  There was this day that was not all that long ago – if memory serves, you can practically count on your hands and with the help of a foot the number of days since this wonderful, magical fantastic day was!  Let me continue weaving this yarn by telling you that not only were the Bride & Groom wonderful to work with, each & every person in their wedding party helped make the day a breeze!

So, I hope you are all strapped in, because we’re in the middle of it, and we’re gonna keep on going ’till dawn.  I have no idea what that means, but I’m trying to find a way to finish up these words.  Let me just say, MuchLove & ManyThanks to Laurie & Scott for being so good to us, and to each & every one of you out there in Land of Blog on a night so fine – Enjoy!

Ladies & Gentlemen…Once Again…Arriana!

Oh my dudes.  Where to begin…where to begin.  Well, it began a long long long long long [ed.  Nice use of repetitive words to get your word count up, but I’m not falling for it.] time ago, in a land far far away [ed.  OK now…is this Star Wars?] in the land of rainbows & photos, and we’ve wound up here still in the land of photo’s, but without not as many rainbows (that sounds depressing, but really – it isn’t.)  We’ve all grown a little bit older & wiser, some of us have grown a little bit better looking (me), and some of us have entered the picture (Arriana) and completely changed the lives of some (Fat Al…I kid…Scott & Kacie!  But really, last time I saw Fat Al, he was as big as a cougar and covered in dust.)

For most of you reading this, you will not understand the majority of that previous paragraph, but that’s OK.  What I’m saying, in a nutshell, is that life is wonderful!  And if you need proof to back up this statement, you need not look any further than the gorgeous samplesnaps beneath these words.  There is absolutely no way you can look at the ever-lovely Arriana & not know that things are good, life is wonderful, and tomorrow will be a sunny day!

As usual, she came in to the FunCenter ready to rock (duh – has she ever not been able to work the camera?!) and all we did was sit back and let her show us the new clothes & the new moves.  And how did she do?  She tore it up (again…duh), no two ways about it, she straight up tore it up!

These words have meandered enough, and now is the time that we give Arriana, her Mom & Dad a big ol’ MuchLove for being so good to us, and to all the other citizens of blogville keeping our community of love strong – Enjoy!

Hold On To Your Pants, It’s The Family Miller!

Hello.  It’s me again.  When I tell you to hold on to your pants, I’m not quite sure I know what I mean (which is more often than not the case), but it’s the only way that I know how to tell you that what you are about to see is going to be wild.  As kind of a rule of thumb, when you have to hold on to your pants, things is gonna get wild.  Sometimes I tell you that things are going to knock your socks off, but these pics might go one step beyond that, we’re moving up to DefCon 1…losing your pants.

You’ve heard it here first, folks (try typing that 10 times in a row), we’re beyond socks and we’re into the land of pants.  And why, I’m sure you’re asking yourselves must you be holding on to your pants at this moment?  Because we had the great pleasure of working with the one & only Family Miller on a day that wasn’t really all that long ago (I love it when I attempt to put some sort of time perspective on things, but I’m too lazy to look at the calendar, so I just say that it was not all that long ago, which may or may not be the case, but it’s relative.  Time is relative…deep, huh?), and – as is always the case – they were totally awesome!

But, did I really need to tell you that?  No.  Because if you’re one of the people that has been reading bliggityblog for the past few years, you know that we’ve worked with some combination of this family enough to establish the fact that they are going to be awesome no matter what they do.  When they added Stella to the traveling band, things only got better (sorry Steve, she stole your thunder.)

But now, I’m just blabbering and I really have run out of words.  Before I let you go, however, we gotta throw up a big ol’ MuchLove to The Family Miller for giving us a little bit of love in the land of 0&j, and for being such a wonderful part of our family!  As always, we’d be nothing without you guys!  Oh, and to all my good peeps out there in Land of Blog just waiting for summer to creep up and take over our lives – Enjoy!

OMG. Book Backrops Are Gonna Be All The Rage This Year.

Senior Fever.  Catch It Today.Dudes.  Oh my dudes.  I’m going to let you in on something.  Throughout your life, there will be moments where your creativity will stagnate, and then there will be moments when your creativity will soar, like the eagle!  My friends, our eagles are flying high, as during a trip to MSU the other day, we stumbled upon something so fantasticlyawesome that we just know it is going to be the buzz for our Seniors this year.  Fake books.

You heard me right.  Fake books.

You see, if you want to portray that you are a person of the books, you are studious…what better way to say it than with the fake book background.  Not doing so hot with the grades, but yet want the relatives to still think you are hitting the books 24/7?  Fake books.  Spending too much time on Facebook and not enough time on real book?  Fake books.

And adults, you want to convey that image that you are a person that’s getting it done?  You want you boss to know just how awesome you are?  How about a picture like what you see above these words.  Nothing says ‘I’m gettin’ it done’ like an 8×10 with you and a fake books background.  Hang it up in your office, and next time boss person stops by, they’ll know you’ve got moxie.

Fake books for 2009.  Hell yes.

Kristin & Bill

And just like that, our Wedding season began again!  I can think of no better way to get this non-stop (at least until October) party rollin’, than with the totally awesome, the ever-lovely, the one & only…Kristin & Bill!  It was a marvelous, fantastic day – and would it be any other way?!  You see, with a couple this grand, it had to be a wonderful day!

Now, it would be enough if just this awesome couple were so easy to work with, but not only were they – but their entire wedding party was just as wonderful!  We tore it up, we tore it down, we came, we saw, we conquered, we showed wedding pictures just how they need to be done.  If you don’t believe me, then I just invite you to – as soon as these words are done – to look at the sweetlysweet samplesnaps.  You’ll see what I’m talking about, and it ain’t no jive.  Nope.

Alright, enough of all this blibberblabber, it’s time for us to give a huge MuchLove & ManyThanks to this awesome couple, and everyone else that made our day such a breeze, and to you, my good citizens of blogville, I tell you this – Enjoy!

Well, the wheels on the Otis & James Caravan of Love just keep on spinning ’round & ’round (like a record baby, right rou…whoops…it’s not the ’80’s anymore), and this time the lucky occupant of this bus (you digging this analogy yet, or what?!) is the one & only, the superfantastic…Falon!

Now, this lovely lady did not stop by just to say hi, or to compliment Mr. Otis on his new ‘Southern Gent’ facial hair (come to think of it, there really haven’t been all that many positive comments about it, but I gotta be me…right!), oh no – she came in to the FunCenter to get some totally awesome it’s never too late Senior Snaps taken!

And, do you want to know how she did?  Well, what if I were to tell you that she was awesome.  What would you think about that?  Well, you’re not going to have much time to formulate an answer to that question, because I’m straight up telling you that she was awesome!  Yep.  Straight up, my babies!

But we don’t need any of these silly words to let us know these facts, all we need do [ed – All we need do?  Really.] is look at the lovely samplesnaps below these words, and you’ll see the dilly-yo (do people still say that?  Am I still hip?)  Before that, we gotta give Falon a huge MuchLove for stopping down to FunCenter, and we have to remind you, the faithful of blog, to – Enjoy!

Kelly, Johnny, Kade (& Almost One More!)

Well, there was this time, see, that wasn’t all that long ago, when the doors to the Otis & James FunCenter opened up and in strolled this lovely trio!  We’ve had the goodly great pleasure of working with them before, so we knew they were going to be totally awesome.  And I’m here to tell you, at this fine hour of the day, that they did not disappoint.  In fact, they were not only awesome, they were superawesome.

That’s right.  You heard me.  SUPERAWESOME.

For those of you that know awesome, that’s awesome + super, and that’s a lot of awesome.  So, I invite you now to sit back, relax, and take in the beauty of these oh so lovely samplesnaps…but wait!  Before that, we need to give a huge MuchLove & ManyThanks to this wonderful group for giving us a little bit of their sweet & precious time, and to all my good peeps out there in Land of Blog enjoying this fine, fine evening – Enjoy!

Oh Sweet Bippy…It’s Brody!

Oh my dudes.  Somebody out there is ready for baseball season.  You know, I bet there are a lot of peeps out there ready for it.  But I’m thinking of one little dude in particular, and he goes by the name of Brody.

You want to know how I know this?  Because…I’ve seen the pics that prove the statement.  And you know what?  In just a few words you will too.  Before we get ready to blast off to awesomesamplesnapville, we want to give a big ol’ MuchLove & ManyThanks to Brody for stopping by the FunCenter and letting us spend a little quality time with him before he hit the diamond [ed. – Why do you even bother with sports terminology?  Everybody knows you have no idea what you are talking about.], and to all my good peeps out there in Land of Blog keeping it real – Enjoy!
