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
Are you sitting down? Well, yeah, of course you are, because you are reading this on your computer. Unless you are at one of those hip coffee shops that has a free internet computer with no chair to make sure people don't camp out there trying to buy retro Air Jordan's on ebay and in a bid war with someone from Thailand just because they have the original laces! I digress. We're announcing something today that is completely new and like nothing we have ever done before, ever. Topping the whole thing off with the best possible offer. Free. Yeah, Free. I should probably tell you what it is that is free before I get you all excited about the fact that it is free. Well here it is....
Announcing the Teen Weeny Wiebs! It's a mouthful, so you can shorten it if you want, just don't drop the Teeny part.
Teeny Weeny Wiebs will be short 15-20 minute sessions with a theme. The theme will be new each month, and we're going to try to make it seasonal. The session will be for one child at a time with no age restrictions. Our favorite images will then be printed and displayed on First Friday each month, so you can come out and enjoy all of the events downtown while seeing the photos.
I am sure you are still trying to picture this crazy idea, so I will give you the details of the first shoot...
This month we are planning to hang out the laundry. Yep, we have tons and tons of laundry to get done, and we need your kids help. The way we do laundry is a lot more fun though. Think bubbles, blue skies, and clothes pins. We need volunteers for this first Teeny Weeny Wiebs shoot, and it's a big one! This is our first shoot at the new studio, and we really want it to be fun and exciting. After the shoot we will select our faves, print them and hang them for First Friday, June 5th (our Open House/Grand Opening). Our guests will vote for their favorite image, and whoever wins gets the print free!
Oooh, I forgot to mention the voting! When we hang the prints we plan on placing a small donation jar under each one. As people come in and view the prints they will vote for their favorite one with donations. The print that collects the most money wins. The donations will then be given to a different charity each month. We think this is a great way to use our art to support a good cause.
I am sure that you are as excited as we are about this idea, so please contact us as soon as you can. This first shoot will be happening next week, so if you want to be involved send us an EMAIL now! I know the spots will fill up quick.
Oh, and did I mention that it's FREE!
Brittaney and Scott - The River, A Shack, and some Limestone Tuesday, May 12, 2009
Well after one rained out weekend in April, we were able to reschedule Brittaney and Scott's engagement session for May 2nd and actually had some decent weather! We were a little worried, as it was raining for us on the drive from Lancaster to Wrightsville for the shoot, but it cleared up before we arrived at Brittaney's mom's house and we were good to go! Brittaney's mom has a pretty sweet view from her house - she lives right on the Susquehanna River. I had forgotten how much I love shooting right next to the river until we started fooling around with these two. It was super muddy from all of the rain that week, but Brittaney and Scott risked getting their shoes muddy (which they did) to get some fun shots.
The river wasn't the only thing Brittaney had in store for us. Since her and Scott live up in Connecticut, she had her mom scout out some other "cool and grimy" locations for us. :) Yay, some fun places for the Wiebners to play! We stopped at an abandoned roadside farm stand, and then went into the town of Wrightsville to an old Limestone Kiln. They were all fantastic locations! We really can't wait to shoot this wedding in August - these two are a hoot!
Down by the riverside, we found some overgrown "stuff" to mess around in.
And this log proved to be an icebreaker. After I got this shot, we had Scott stand up behind Brittaney on the log...
...and they BOTH almost fell off into the thick yucky mud!! It did make for some good laughs, and of course, we just kept shooting away. :)
This is one of my favorite shots of Brittaney - taken right on the river.
AND one of my other faves - this shot rocks socks.
Scott was having some fun under the tree. :)
AND another rocks socks shot. This landscape shot is awhhhsome!
At the farm stand...
...making some faces through an empty window. Ya know, just hanging out, nothing to do.
At the limestone kilns, Scott played into Joel's diabolical scheme to catch them unaware.
A more posed shot by me, but still cute. :)
And yeah, they were grossed out here cause there was icky white stuff coming off of the bricks on their heads! Great way to end a shoot! :)
