Last night was an example of why it’s a good idea to always have your camera. I was hanging out with some photographer friends in the Haymarket and the call came in: There’s a fire by the train station. With a crowd of about 50 people watching the fire, I headed north away from the crowd to get these images.
Someone last week asked if we travel to do weddings. Our answer was, “You name it, we will be there!” On June 4 we had a chance to photograph a wedding in Columbus, Ne. The ceremony was at St. Isidores Catholic Church and the reception was at the New World Inn. Laura & Tyler couldn’t have asked for a better day for their wedding. Let me know what you think. Enjoy!
A couple weeks ago I had the chance to photograph a band with tons of energy: VooDoo Method. I had seen these guys once before when, of course, my camera was at home. So when I noticed they would be back at the Zoo Bar, I knew I had to photograph this band. My main focus was on the lead singer. I know that seems to be the direction every photographer goes but he had great stage presence. If you ever get a chance, check em out!
What a fun wedding! Madison & Ryan were married at St. John the Apostle Church in Lincoln, NE. They had an intimate wedding with about 150 guests. Keeping with tradition, Ryan did not see Madison until she walked down the aisle during the ceremony. This was far from a traditional wedding party, though. After the ceremony we ventured to the Starlight Lounge in downtown Lincoln’s Historic Haymarket District. I know what you’re thinking: “Bar Photos,” but we take a different approach with every couple and every location. The party did not end at the bar. Ryan and Madison’s reception was at the Grand Manse, where food, celebration, and dancing took over the night! Enjoy the show.
Brittany & Mark took me to Holland, Nebraska to photograph their engagement session. If I could boast a bit, we got some cool images. Mark brought an old Schwinn bike, which started the session off right. We also used two old trucks to complete the vintage look. Bringing distinctive props helps create one of a kind pictures. Stay tuned for more unique sessions.
So spring time is here, and we are unveiling our new blog. This blog will be a great chance to see current images from Corey Rourke Photography. It will also be a wonderful resource from wedding day tips to clothing ideas for family and seniors. We are setting no limits on this blog. One day you might see a slide show of a current wedding but don’t be surprised if you see a concert photo the next day. I get some of my creative juice from photographing musicians performing. Stay tuned for exciting imagery!
