For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.

A rekindling experience of love through imagery.

Amanda & Steve | Wedding Photographer Monroe Files Photography

Amanda and Steve tied the knot on May 1, 2010! Congrats you two!
These two cuties should look fromiliar...I did their engagement photos way back in February 2009. It's hard to believe their big day came and went!
You can see the rest of their engagment photos here:

I was not the main photographer for the event, Phase One got the honors there. Paul is wonderful and we are just keeping him in the family! Phase One did my sister in laws wedding, our wedding and now my sister in law's brother in law. (Any one confused yet??) =)

Here are just a few from the day. I would have took more if I wasn't pregnant and over heated. I had to make an emergency sit down while waiting for everyone to exit the church after the ceremony or my husband would have been picking me off the ground. No worries! Just one of the many quirks of being pregnant. All is well and on schedule there!

Seeing Amanda for the first time.

Amanda's sister, full of tears, as she approaches Steve.

This would be my niece, Hailey. How do you keep a flower girl entertained? Let her smack the pew in front of her while screaming with glee and attacking the program. She's a stinker!

So much love =)

St. Michael's is one of my favorite churches, so pretty.
Here the Unity Candle is still lit.

This is a result of my need to sit down, seeing them get swarmed by loved ones =)
And her dress is gorgeous!

Their guest far the CUTEST guest book I have seen! This was the first page of the book, photo by me =) The following pages contained photos through out their courtship, from sweet 16 up to finishing college and graduating into the Coast Guard.

Ok, so I was super excited that not only my photos made it on the program, but there was a two page spread in the guest book. And I have no shame and signed on my page of photos too!

First dance as husband and wife.

Congrats again you two!! I still can't believe how fast time flew by between engagement photos and your big day. I hope you both enjoyed the Caribbean Honeymoon! May God bless you with many happy years together!

Fiesta Block Party | Event Photographer Monroe Files Photography

I'm on the promotions committee for the Down Town DuBois First Friday Events. I never made it to one last year (they were on Thursdays last summer) so I was super excited to not only make it to the Fiesta Block Party on May 7th, but also take some photos of the action!
There was a constant line for face painting. I'm surprised the two girls did not have carpel tunnel after all those cheeks and hands went through =)

Marcella informing the audience on her Zumba classes.

The girls from Marcella's classes doing a Zumba presentation.

The girls and guys working it out!

Zumba looks like tons of fun! I am planning on going to a class (or a bunch!) after I am no longer pregnant. It was infectious just watching from the side lines!

You can sign up to win a Mustang being raffled off by Relay for Life...

...or sign up to win a Harley!

My favorite and always a sure sign of summer...Kettle corn!

And this lovely pup hangs out and makes sure customers are behaving =P

Marianne Fyda from Peaceable Kingdom was doing a chalk drawing of the street.

That is all from chalk! My brain sees chalk and thinks hop scotch and flowers.

Dos Hombres was the entertainment for the evening.

She's so cute in her sombrero!

Pinata time! I love her facial expression!

This little one posed for Daddy's camera. TOO cute!

Pinata down!

And the crazy scramble for sugary goodies ensues =)
The next First Friday event is June 4th and the theme is Long Avenue Cafe.
There will be live entertainment and games for the kids!
Come out and see us from 5-8PM on West Long Avenue!
