I am so excited about the wedding I just photographed with Dana Damewood last weekend!
First of all, I find it so rewarding to work with other photographers. Shortly after starting out on my own with a few weddings for friends and family, I started a business with Andrey Mikityuk called Corrie and Andrey Photographers. We did some awesome work together. After our divorce, I didn't want to stop photographing weddings! I knew I had to keep shooting, but loved doing it with other talented photographers, so Kameron Bayne invited me to come work with him. I was excited to be part of a team again, but also loved to see how other photographers did things slightly differently than I did. We had so much fun together making beautiful work and solving challenges together that I opened myself up to "second-shooting" with other photographers, too! I have also enjoyed "second-shooting" with Dana Damewood, Brad Iwen and Stacie Kinney over the past couple of years. I have been fortunate enough to hire some of my former photography students from Metropolitan Community College of Omaha to assist me on some weddings, as well. Alex and Miranda Benge have been a joy to work with on a few weddings and portrait sessions. I love working with other talented photographers because I can see their ideas, watch how they interact with clients and observe how they solve all of the challenges that we face during a wedding day. I always learn something new and gain from the experience, as I hope they do, too!
Shooting with Dana and her assistant, Jackie is always a ball! We are a powerful trio! Not only do we have lots of fun, we compliment each other so well with our shooting styles. I can't wait to see all of the images together when Dana gets them processed! Here is just a teaser with a few favorites that I came home with.
Patrick and Andy were so great. They were so fun and easy to work with, and their friends and family were all so nice! With Andy's former work on "Extreme Makeover" as an architectural designer, he was able to use the talents of his friends from the show to help their vision come to life. The design, details and decorations were absolutely beautiful. Here are a few images to give you just a taste of what the amazing day was like. Be sure to check back to Dana's Blog to watch for her post as well! Enjoy!
