I had the good fortune of photographing the Governor of Missouri today for The Warren County Record.
Governor Jay Nixon was in Jonesburg, MO for the ground breaking ceremony of Certainteed Corporation.  I love my job, I get to meet interesting people, and gain new experiences daily!

I have the good fortune of being the Warren County Fair Queen Contest photographer.  A job I enjoy every year.  This year the weather was perfect with a few of the observers actually wearing jackets to stay warm!  Congratulations to Hanna Keene, daughter of Barb and Kenny Keene on being the 2013 Warren County Fair Queen winner.  Best wishes to all the runner's up too!

I had the good fortune of being given a pass to Innsbrook Missouri's annual fireworks show.  What an amazing show!  I see why it gets so many great reviews.  Thank  you to Katie Tucker and the staff of Innsbrook for your gracious pass to the Innsbrook fireworks show.  Here are a few of the photos.

Choosing a florist for your wedding
When looking into wedding flowers consider the colors of the dresses, the accents etc.  Do you want to use silk flowers or fresh flowers?  Do you want to use a local reputable florist or will you use someone  you know to create the bouquets, table arrangements and personal flower pieces?  Keep in mind the flowers you choose along with the time of the  year dictates price in fresh flowers.  For example, if you want to use fresh roses near Valentine's Day you will pay a premium price for the roses.  Spring flowers like tulips may be available at times other than spring, but you may pay a higher price. 
If on a budget, talk to your florist about flowers that have a similar look to expensive ones like hydrangea or peonies.  Your florist may be able to substitute a similar flower at a cheaper price tag.  When visiting the local florist it is a good idea to take in photos of flowers that you especially like.  That helps them get an idea of the overall look  you like.  Pinterest is a great tool to show your florist the look you are going for. 

If possible arrange to see your flowers the day before your wedding.  With a viewing of the flowers  you can feel comfortable that when they are delivered to your wedding location they are exactly what you were expecting.....no surprises!
