Wedding Fair Turned Photo Shoot

A few weeks ago I was a vendor  in the 1st Annual “Grand Love A-Faire” Wedding Reception held at the Grand Manse.  I took this opportunity to showcase the beauty of the Grand Manse as a reception location and backdrop for gorgeous portraits.  Joselyn at Ready or Knot {Wedding Chic} let me photograph the fashion show models from UNL’s Chi Omega Sorority.  Ready or Knot {Wedding Chic} had an awesome selection  of bridal and bridesmaids dresses to choose from.   Salon Avalon styled the models’ hair while Heather at W Salon was the makeup artist.  Thanks again for everyone that was involved in the “Grand Love A-Faire” and our photo shoot!

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner: Baby Desmond

About two weeks ago something very special happened.  Erin and I had our first child, Desmond Michael Rourke.  I’m so proud of my wife; words can’t describe what a women does in labor.  She is such a strong woman!  I was so fortunate to document the birth of my son; I will cherish these images forever.  Much thanks goes out to Mandi Campbell, our doula, and all of the wonderful staff at St Elizabeth’s Hospital.  Below is a slide show of the three days at the hospital and and when we got home.   Enjoy!
