Has it really been 17 years of wedding shooting?? Wow does time ever fly. I can’t believe that this October we here at One Fine Day Photography will reach our 400th wedding milestone!! What an honor it has been to touch the lives of all 400 of those couples. How did it all start? Starting with a rusty old Pentax that my Dad gave me in college, and then working my way through medium format film cameras such as the Hasselblad 580EX, then moving through my Fuji phase, then Nikon and now finally my favorite – Canon. From 1993 to 2001, I enjoyed wedding photography on a part time basis since I was part of corporate America. 10 to 12 weddings a year was plenty to balance with my full time job, but it gave me the training and insight for that 8 years to really learn my craft. When I finally made the leap in 2001 to “full-time” wedding photography status… I never looked back. I then had the VERY good fortune of meeting my partner Doug Williams in 2001 and then another amazing member of my team Jim Baker in 2003. I definitely could not have done it without them. 400 more weddings?? Not sure – but living in the moment -and photographing each wedding as if it was the first or last wedding we’ll ever do – I can speak for all of my team when I say we LOVE what we do!! Thanks again Doug and Jim for all the hard work and dedication!! And of course I can’t forget my other fabulous team members Danielle, Gina, Ally, Jennifer and Eric – thanks so much gang!!

Amazing how true that cliche is of how fast time flies when you're having fun. I am so glad to be apart of One Fine Day and can't wait for when it's my turn one day to be married I'll have a wonderful photographer by my side the entire day.

We're so thrilled to be among your 400 - or with our wedding less than 2 weeks, could we actually be the 400th? :) Our very best to you - as we know we have the very BEST capturing our wedding moments!
