Wedding weekend, take 2

This is happy couple number two from the big wedding weekend. Rain again tried to play the spoiler, but J & J had an awesome indoor ceremony at Bel Arco in Bull Shoals. We did venture outside in the high humidity for some formals and tender moments between the bride and groom. All in all, it was a great weekend for weddings, despite the threat of showers. Congrats!

Wedding weekend, take 1

It was a busy, but fun weekend with two weddings and two awesome couples.
Bryan and J.J. had a wonderful wedding at Zanoni, Mo., with one of Ozark County's beautiful mills as a backdrop. The weather tried to play the spoiler as rain showers moved in, but not before we were able to get some stunning formals in front of the waterfall.

It's Gunner

Say hello to Gunner. He fully enjoyed playing for the camera. He's a natural, what can I say?

He's a very well-behaved yellow lab. Seriously, he minds better than my kids do, and certainly better than my black lab, Lucky. With my lab, I'm "lucky" if he comes when I call him.

So, Gunner, keep it cool dog! And if you ever want to teach an old dog new tricks, stop by and see Lucky.

This is from a recent wedding in Eureka Springs. The hotel where the wedding was supposed to take place actually caught fire. Good thing it was an outside wedding. It did delay the ceremony. But it was one of the most fun weddings I've ever attended. It was a blast photographing it. Thanks B & B!

This is a photo shoot I did recently. We were nearly rained out, but with a little fill flash and some great bokeh, we got through it.

I should introduce myself.

My name is Bruce Roberts, I own Twin Lakes Photography in north-central Arkansas.

Having been a journalist for nearly 20 years, I've done a lot of photography, and have shot countless weddings and other things "kinda on the side."

I decided to step out by faith and go big time. Well, as big time as I can on a journalist's salary. I still have my day job (except, I work nights). My goal is to be an award-winning wedding and portrait photographer. I've won some awards for my photography over the years through various press association competitions, but I want to give my customers portraits that people just can't quit looking at. I hope to use this blog as a measuring post and push my quality with every post.

I look forward to the challenge and my new-found hobby, BLOGOMANIA!

Well, this is a test. Not of the Emergency Broadcasting System, but of my blog.
Is this thing on???
