I’ve Been Featured!

I did what all well-meaning people do: I searched my name in Google’s search bar to see what came up. Who hasn’t done that every now and then?

And I noticed a few things…

The first couple of entries were from Facebook posts. Facebook seems to almost run the world these days, doesn’t it?? But I discovered that some of these posts were pretty trivial. I wasn’t searching myself to see that I was really into a particular meal that I ate at a certain Mexican restaurant in 2008. Which I was…

So I kept scrolling down.

And I noticed that one of my engagement photos had been featured on an engagement photography blog!

Now, that’s exciting! Somebody saw my work on Flickr (check out my Flickr page here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/tmarsee530), liked it, and put it alongside several others that I happen to really like! It’s an honor to be included among such wonderful photographers.

I’m excited for you to see it… So go look! It’s called “Kissing at Sunset,” and it features my brother- and sister-in-law, Brad and Sarah.

And take a look at some of the other photos! They’re all really great. You can find the link here: 20 Beautiful Engagement Photos

Kyle + Heather’s Engagement Session

Tying the knot this November, Kyle and Heather are soon to be husband and wife. Heather and I have known each other for a while, but our friendship history doesn’t compare to what she and my wife have. Heather and my wife, Lindsay, go way back. They have been the kind of friends that no matter where life takes them, they pick up right where they left off. They are always supportive of each other and will always have each other’s backs. Seeing Heather genuinely care for my wife as a friend has been such a blessing. So, capturing these moments in Heather and Kyle’s life and witnessing this journey has been and will be a joy for us. Heather and Kyle are such a fun couple with a vintage flair! They wanted to incorporate the city they love, the team they love, and the canine they love. All this mixed in with the love and excitement they have for each other results in some great photographic moments. Please enjoy seeing some of Kyle and Heather’s Engagement Session. We look forward to capturing more moments in November! _MG_8554 _MG_8555 _MG_8560 _MG_8567 _MG_8584 _MG_8591 _MG_8605 _MG_8611 _MG_8622 _MG_8636 _MG_8638 _MG_8665 _MG_8673 _MG_8676 _MG_8695

Jonathan + Madeline’s Engagement Session

Road trips are always fun with these two. Granted, the only ones that we have been on have involved us driving together to a venue for shooting, but the ride is always worth it! Our conversation goes from marriage, to theology, to marriage, to theology, etc. Those are two of my favorite subjects! So I had a blast, myself.

The first place we stopped was a local park, and you can’t tell from the images, but we were right next to a road where bicyclists and all manner of joggers and walkers were going by! I’m sure they enjoyed the show that these two put on!

Here are some of my personal favorites from the start of the shoot at Cherokee Park.

The only downside (if you can even call it that) was that we wanted to get some images of the clouds in the sky at sunset. That evening, the sky was a beautiful blue, and the clouds formed a large ripple effect against the whites and yellows of the clouds. So we drove over to the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (my usual stomping grounds) for some shots with not only the beautiful sky, but the red-brick buildings, as well.

And then, I had some sort of personal epiphany when I noticed these gorgeous red bushes! So I say to Madeline and Jonathan, “Get in those bushes!” And they happily obliged without even the slightest hesitation! Team players, they are. And the image that came out of those bushes was my favorite from the entire session. What do you think?
