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!

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
Feb 3rd The Wiebners experienced something new. We photographed the birth of baby Finlee. Finlee's parents, Jonathan and Sarah, are also photographers here in the area, and friends of ours. Months ago when they found out they were pregnant, they asked us if we would be "on call" to photograph the birth. Having never done something like this before, we hesitated for a second, and then of course jumped in with all of our feet and said, "Heck, yes!" Luckily Sarah's due date was February 17th, which for us at this time of the year, we don't have much booked, so we were pretty free to go whenever we got the call from them. Finlee arrived 2 weeks early!
Finlee Harper McBride arrived on Feb. 3rd weighing in at 6 lbs. 15oz. She is such a cutie and Joel and I were so honored to be there.
I could write tons and tons about the whole experience, but Joel and I wanted to do something special instead. Below is a slideshow of our favorite 50 images from the experience - that part of the slideshow is at the beginning and lasts about 3 minutes. If you want to hang out, and have about 20 minutes to kill, after the images we actually go through the whole experience doing a "commentary" telling our story and talking about each of the images. We wanted to do this as a special gift to Jonathan and Sarah, so they know what we saw and how we viewed the entire day. We also thought it might help some photographers out there that have maybe never done this, were scared to try or didn't know what to expect! We hope you enjoy it, and below the slideshow you will find our favorite images from the day. What a wonderful, life changing experience!
