Effingham Wedding (photography on Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands)

* I'm over the moon to announce that I've booked my very first wedding in Effingham!!!!  Yay for me!  And get this........wait for it.........it's a barn wedding!  I know, I love barn weddings too!  Okay, okay, it's not exactly a barn wedding, it's almost cooler than that.  This couple has converted a huge old barn into their house.  It took them a very long time, through lots of blood, sweat, and tears and now they are going to be married there in June.  Isn't that romantic?  I think so.  The wheels are already spinning about all the pictures I have in mind.  Of course I haven't even seen the place yet. I can't wait to get out there and check it out!  So, thank you Maria and Terry for giving me my very first booking in Effingham, and thanks to Charlotte too, for recommending me.  You're all awesome!  I can't wait.

I can't really have a post and not have some pictures.  It just wouldn't be right.  Unfortunately there aren't a whole lot of barns in Cayman, so I have zero pictures of barns.  You'll just have to settle for the pictures I took after work today.  The black bird is called a Ching Ching, and he was hunting lizards.  They always have a bit of an evil glint in their eye!

I am a self taught, natural light photographer, with sixteen years of shooting experience under my belt. Back in the day, I learned to shoot with film, developed it and printed my own photos in my darkroom. I've since moved to digital, but film holds a very dear spot in my heart that I just can't seem to shake. I was supposed to be a horticulturalist and landscape architect...at least that's what my degree's tell me. I followed that path for some time, along with a few other paths, but photography won my heart. Plants and beautiful mother nature is, and will always be, a great inspiration to me. If at all possible, I prefer to shoot outdoors and somehow incorporate nature into the scene. I'm originally from the Watson, Illinois area, but the majority of my adult life I spent living in the Cayman Islands and only moved home to Illinois with my husband and son a few short years ago. I grew up on a small working farm, with acres and acres of natural areas at my disposal. It gave me a great appreciation for the world around me. I roamed wherever I pleased, built forts in the woods, picked wildflowers in the pasture and caught craw-daddies in the crick. My son is taking over the jobs of fort building and craw-daddy hunting, but I'll never give up the picking of wildflowers.
