…No I am not calling this little boy a chicken, but what a little ball of energy! This was my first time meeting Ben, and his wonderful mom Amy, and boy were they fun! We decided after about 5 minutes that we were going to have to get all candid shots, because Ben did not want to sit still, or sit AT ALL , to say the least 🙂 Candid photographs are always my favorite, because the character of the child really shines through, and I love being able to tell a story through my photography. We picked a great location, Ben LOVED the animals, especially the chickens that got loose, and we were chasing after!! ( Well, he was chasing after, we were just chasing after him…) I would have to say that was Ben’s favorite part of the afternoon 😉
Ben & Amy were great to work with, I still get butterflies meeting new clients, but capturing moments like this, and freezing them in time… the butterflies are so worth it, enjoy!!
there goes the chicken… AND BEN!! 😉

I have been photographing the Wolf Family for 2+ years now, and they have such a wonderful bond! It has been such a blessing to watch them grow, and so fast! I think all the kids (except Jack- the 2 year old) are taller than me now, what else is new! We had a great time together- despite the hot humid weather, and their long sleeves 🙂
Sarah Joppeck (a professional photographer in the making) came along with me for this shoot, and ran after me as I ran through the bushes and in the water- bless her heart, she was such a great help, despite me losing the FIRST lens cap I have EVER lost in my 5 years of having Dayna Mae Photography… If you have ever photographed a wedding with me, or seen me photograph a wedding, you are probably surprised I haven’t lost one sooner… HA! 😉
Enjoy the sneak preview of the Wolf’s family photos… and Sarah, thanks for all your help! YOU ROCK SISTER!!

I love a couple who likes to have fun in front of my camera, and that pretty much describes Stef & Aaron! I knew from the beginning that they were going to be a fun couple, because they came recommended from another bride and groom (Angie & Larry) who we photographed at their wedding last February and had a ton of fun. Stef told me from the beginning that she LOVES pictures (a girl after my own heart) and proved it when she was pretty much willing to do anything (including walking barefoot through thorn bushes and roaming downtown A2 in her wedding gown!) to get the perfect picture. So when I told her I was going to have 3rd photographer- Daighna- she had no problem with that because she knew that meant more pictures. For Daighna’s first wedding, she did awesome at keeping me sane, while making sure I didn’t leave any lens’s behind… ( I tend to leave things everywhere on wedding days!)
I love love LOVE the moments captured from their special day, and a huge thank you to STEF AND AARON for being so much fun and willing to do….pretty much anything for a good photograph 🙂 AND another shout out to Daighna & Matt for working so hard, and capturing some awesome photos! Enjoy some of my favorites…
Matt and I working a little of our magic! I have him to thank for the next shot of these fabulous rings! 🙂
Can you tell the DETAILS and the wedding rings pics are some of my favorites?! 🙂

Let me first start out by saying I love this couple! Sara was always, the “cool, beautiful, big sister” of one of my closet girlfriends growing up, so when she asked me to do her and Eric’s wedding & engagement photos I was honored 🙂 (and make-up, and hair!) They have one of the coolest venue’s I have been to for a wedding. It was a far drive, but totally worth it! Poor Sara, there was this awesome red fence we were going to take some photos by, I had her sit up against it, and after about 5 seconds, she jumped back. Well, the electric current from the other fence was going through the red fence, shocking her! (literally) Eric, (mr.tough guy…;)) didn’t even jump or feel a thing! ha ha sorry Sara… but she was a trooper, and kept going, and still listened to me after I shocked her.
We had a ton of fun, and Eric even brought his guitar along to serenade us with a song. (perks of the job!) After spending an evening with them, seeing their love for each other, and dodging sprinklers and electric fences, I’d say they could pretty much make it through anything.
Sara & Eric, I pray that the Lord blesses you beyond measure during this time of your engagement and throughout your marriage. You two truly are a beautiful couple.
WHAT A ROCK : )
