Do you like to have fun? We do, especially with our photos. We wanted something a little different than the average blog out there, so along with our super talented Blog designer we came up with a Favorites section - or "Wiebner Faves" as we like to call it. What is it you ask? more »
Well, under each photo, you will see an "I Like This" box. If you really like that image, if it tickles your fancy, or makes you laugh, or just plain old makes you smile - go ahead - check it. We know you want to. Each time that box is clicked on a photo, it adds to the running tally for that image. The top 14 favorite images on the entire blog will be shown as thumbnails in this section. Just so you can see the most popular images of all time on the blog. A little something out of the ordinary - it never hurts to be different!
Also, blog posts can be favorites. Now that we have comments available, you will see a little bar meter at the bottom left of each post. Once the meter hits a certain number of comments, its automatically promoted to a "Wiebner Fave Post". :) Something else just for fun!
Are you ready to advance your business? Education in our industry is important to us. The more photographers that are aware in the industry the better it is for everyone. Won't you join us in making our goals a reality? We participate in various workshops, seminars and speaking engagements. Listed below are various engagements - some are our own workshops, others we will be hosting or speaking at. If you wish to participate, please drop us a line or click the link to find out more info!
I find it incredibly difficult to write about us when put on "The Spot". "I need a 500 word bio about you and Joel, now!" Who can do that? How do you make your own personality shine in a few words, let alone that of two people? Well, I am going to give it my best shot. If you really want to know about US - who we really are - read the blog below. We really try to keep it updated as often as possible, and hope that our fun, casual personalities shine through in the words you read and the images we capture for our clients. The blog below is our way of communicating our lives - both personal and professional - with clients, friends, family and colleagues. We believe strongly in using words and images together to communicate our passion.
I am going to keep this short and sweet - Joel and I were meant to be together - to live, love and be happy making photographs. We were both photographers before we met over 9 years ago - we met behind a camera, and continue to feed off of that energy. We are a rock solid husband and wife team and we wouldn't want it any other way - we work together 24/7 and never tire of each other. We have had our business since November 2000, and have thrived on photographing weddings as our main photography genre since 2002. We love what we do. We like to think we look at the world in our own way - not photojournalistically, not traditionally, not artistically. Just as a Wiebner. If you like what we see, then you will like us too. Oh and don't forget to comment in the blog on our two little darlings - Haydn and Zane - they are pretty darn cute little Wiebners. Enjoy! - Rita
It's almost time for back to school, but we are saying goodbye to summer with a little break. A few days camping in the woods (with no cell service) with the boys and some friends. And then it's off for a solo trip for Joel and I to celebrate our 10 yr wedding anniversary! (Together 15 years come October!) We are headed to Boston for a few days for a little R&R for ourselves. We will be back in the office on August 27th. Talk to you all soon!
Office Closed: July 13th-July28th Friday, July 12, 2013
Hey everyone! It's that time of year, Road Trip time! If you follow us on Instagram or Facebook, you will know we like to take a long road trip every summer. Well it is here, and the office will be closed for the next 2 weeks. I will try to answer some emails here and there while away, but for the most part, won't be getting back to everyone until I get back in the office on July 29th. See you soon!

2 weeks. Whew. What a 2 weeks it has been! As many of you already know. Our friend and photographer passed away suddenly on May 21st. He is survived by his wife and 3 children (which #3 is due any day now.) Like I said a few posts ago, as I was sitting here reeling in those first few days after Daniel's death, I thought, "What can I do?" I felt so helpless. So I did what I could, and took on the enormous project of starting an online fundraising auction for photographers. Joel and I have a lot of national contacts, and I knew our friends would help out. And they did. And more than our friends, we have had donations coming in from wedding and portrait photographers from all around the country. It is exciting and cool, and dang awesome to see everyone's support.
So with the help of some friends (Lori and Kim, I'm looking at you - and a HUGE thank you for putting up with my incessant FB messages and texts) - we got this thing going. We worked out the logistics, and here we are. WITH THE AUCTION LIVE AS I TYPE!!
Currently, we have 60+ donated items and are still accepting donations. (So if you would like to donate a photography product - mentor session, workshop, product, etc., please email me here: Contact Rita.) All from nationally recognized wedding and portrait photographers. The list is quite impressive, and here are just a sampling of what we have:
And so much more! We have nearly 2 dozen different mentoring sessions with photographers such as: Laura Novak, Denis Reggie, Alt-F Photography, Dane Sanders, Amber Holritz, Churck Arlund, The McLellans, etc.
We have SIX - Count them SIX, Full conference passes to WPPI 2014!! We have products, dvds, product credits, you name it, I think we have it!
So without further ado, here is the auction website. Now quit reading, and go bid!!!
I'm all caught up with normal production work and it's time to relax! Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas break. I will! I'll try to answer any email inquiries that I can, but there might be a delay in response as we will be out of town for part of our break. See you in 2013! (When I will be doing lots of albums, filing, accounting...oh joy!)
