Tiffany and Josh were married October 3rd at Buffalo Trace. After an awesome engagement session and bonding over our love of True Blood I was really looking forward to shooting their wedding. Here are some of my favorites so far. Thanks to Kelly Little for second shooting for me 🙂

Rollin’

Last night I had my first Roller Derby practice! Unfortunately I couldn’t skate because I was unable to find a pair of wrist braces (bummer) but I was able to watch with other newbies and get a feel for how the practices work. They started off by doing some falling drills including one called a rock start, which actually looked kind of cool. After that the more experienced skaters did a few jams while newer players continued the falling drills and I sat with a few others on the sidelines and took it all in.

Round and Round

The practice was filled with lots of thrills and spills, although nothing bad enough to deter me from coming back to the next practice. As I sat there watching them I can’t imagine myself having mad skating skills like that, but you never really know what you are capable of if you don’t try, right?  One thing I do know for sure is that I need to make squats, lunges and leg presses a major part of my non-existant exercise repertoire. The quads are most definitely going to be getting a workout!

Rest

I brought my point and shoot with me but I really couldn’t get any good shots, not enough light, as soon as I get my 50mm lens back from Canon I will try and get some better shots 🙂  I went to Dicks in Hamburg today and got the gear that I need so Saturday I’ll be ready to roll! If you are interested in joining the league check out the website for more info. Don’t worry about having to get on skates right away, they actually recommend that you sit through 5 practices first to see if you think it’s right for you. I will be learning skating basics, stopping and the right way to fall before I even think of getting on the track!

*Press*

I was mentioned in the Louisville Courier-Journal, along with a few other Kentucky artists, about our appearance in the Fiber Focus 2009 show in St. Louis. Sure, it’s just my name (and they spelled it wrong), but it’s a start! Here are some pics from the show that I should have posted a while ago.

There was a good turn out!

Hopefully Pointing is a good thing

Collecting his award

My Professor, Arturo Alonzo Sandoval, receiving the Best in Show award!

Best in Show! Blurry pic of Arturo, happy about his new honor.

I also found a bit after that fact that one of my photos that I had taken during the Our World In Pictures workshop this past summer appeared in the Lexington Herald Leader!

Hopefully this is just the beginning of lots of published work in the future!

Surprise!

Today my brother and sister-in-law arrived from Minnesota. I was super exited to get to spend some quality time this week with them.  As they were loading some stuff into the house Davey says, “we brought a surprise for you, I hope you aren’t upset” and in the door walks my dad!! I was so happy that I just started crying, it was definitely a very wonderful surprise!!  Seeing anyone in my family three times in one year is a rare treat. I am so incredibly thrilled right now 🙂

St. Louis: City Museum

On our second day in St. Louis we went to City Museum. From looking at the website I thought that it would be a pretty cool place to go but when we actually got there, well, it was better than I ever could have imagined!  This is what greeted us when we walked up to the building, an old shoe factory:

Entrance to City Museum

After we bought our ticket we came across this weird kind of under-the-sea area. There were caves and holes to climb in, on, through, over, around and under. It seemed never ending!

Under the Crazy Sea

A view from the caves below to the top. The spirals are slides that start from the 7th floor and go all the way down to the first! It was pretty fun sliding down it, making the climb up totally worth it.

Seven Story Slide

This is the stairs going from the first floor to the second. They were painted fun colors and they turned and made noises as you spun them.

Stairs

If you didn’t want to take the stairs from the second level to the bottom you could take the monster slide!

On the second floor they had all sorts of interesting thing. Architectural antiques:

A crazy bar with all sorts of crazy carnival decorations where Heath enjoyed a beer:

A shoelace factory:

A gigantic bug collection:

Some of the walls were completely covered in metal press plates:

Press Wall

Outside there was a huge metal jungle gym area with two planes and a ton of metal bridges and towers to climb. It rained for a few hours and was closed down. It didn’t open again until it stopped raining and the employees went through with massive squeegees to remove the water.

If you are ever in St. Louis you should definitely check this place out, it was totally awesome!  Heath and I were there for half the day and we didn’t even get to go to the roof area, which has a vintage ferris wheel. I would definitely plan for a whole day. And wear pants! Climbing around on the metal could definitely be a little painful of bare knees.
