Lost Emails...

Our email server was down Friday March March 16 through Monday March 19. If you sent us an email during that time, it didn't get to us. Please resend. Sorry for the inconvenience! I wanted to post this here so you wouldn't think we weren't responding to our emails. We work hard to answer all our emails in a timely manner. Thanks!

Honest Answers about Wedding Photography

I belong to an online organization of talented wedding photographers all over the world. It is one of the many ways I keep watch on the portfolios of some of the most amazing wedding photographers throughout the United States as well as many other countries too.

This organization has come together and made a website for brides called www.wedfog.com (they use the word "fog" because they are trying to help clear up the fog about wedding photography). There are some great Question and Answer sections on this website, as well as sample price lists, sample wedding contracts, etc., just to give you an idea of what to expect when selecting a wedding photographer. Check it out!


Published in Arkansas Bride

Brides, be sure to pick up the Spring/Summer edition of Arkansas Bride magazine:

This is the first time the magazine has published photos from "real weddings." Out of the three weddings they featured across the state, two were photographed by Jason & Kori!

Our wedding photos also appeared in several ads and story openers:

Arkansas Bride is published twice a year and is available at all area bookstores and grocery stores.


Published and Featured!

Be sure to grab a copy of the March edition of Celebrate Arkansas magazine. This issue has been so popular that the magazine had to order more copies from the printers, because they were flying off the store shelves so quickly. This is truly one of Celebrate's best issues ever. I'm sure it had nothing to do with the fact that I photographed the cover and inside story on Governor Mike Beebe:

The March issue contains a great wedding planning guide. There are 26 pages of wedding photos taken by Kori and myself!!!

We are also delighted that Celebrate Arkansas featured our business in a five page spread!

New 2008 couples!

Congratulations to Kayla and Kevin who have booked us to photograph their wedding on May 17, 2008 in Fayetteville, Arkansas; as well as Lindsey and Chad who've reserved us for June 14, 2008 for their wedding in Oklahoma City.

Megan + Dustin

Megan and Dustin both work at Dry Gulch, USA near Tulsa, Oklahoma. Dry Gulch was originally built as a backdrop for western movies. Today it is used as a summer camp for kids as well as a marriage retreat for adults. Kori and I had a great time roaming this old west town making their engagement photos.

Emily + Chris

I met up with Emily and Chris on the Fayetteville Square this week to make some cool engagement photos for them. I first met Emily through MySpace.com and we are photographing their wedding later this month!
