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
So how cute, are these cutie patooties?? Can I say cute again! Ok, before I get sickenly sweet like sugary frosting, let's talk about what's up with the Teeny Weeny sessions first...
So if you have been following us lately, you may have noticed we haven't been shooting our Teeny Weeny Wiebs sessions on a monthly basis like we were last year. (If you have NO CLUE what a Teeny Weeny Wiebs sessions is, check out this post from our First Teeny Weeny session to get the basic gist.)
Several reasons for that, but the main one is that these sessions are a super ton of work (and we have had a big increase in our workload with our lifestyle portrait sessions and weddings), so we have decided to do them only every 2-3 months. We will still be tying them into First Fridays and taking donations for charities, for the off months (when we don't have Teeny Weeny sessions), we will be showing off our personal work in the gallery for First Friday. Of course we are chock full of ideas for the Teeny Weeny sessions and are really excited to continue doing them. The next day of sessions will be on Wednesday, May 26th, and we will be emailing out the theme towards the end of next week after we get back from Texas. Also, we have some changes to how Teeny Weeny sessions will work, so pay attention to the email newsletter when you get it!
If you aren't on our email Newsletter list - what are you waiting for? Email us to get in the know! (Sorry photographers, we love you, but the email newsletter is for clients or other parties interested in using our photography services.)
Now, on to the sessions we did for Valentine's Day - we did a play on "Love Letters" as you can see. I think all of the kids got a kick out of the ideas, and we loved shooting them!
Layla was determined to find something in our mailbox, and when she didn't she put something in it!
Logan was lovin' life!
Pierce and William really had a blast. William thought he could actually crawl in the mailbox - part of him fit at least!
Charlotte and Ava were SO diva in their Valentine's dresses their mom made for them.
Carson and Brandon were trying their best to keep these letters up high - I think they succeeded.
Pierce was a little shy and held on to that heart for dear life. He warmed up a little bit, and we got some fun shots for mom.
Ok, one of my all-time favorite Teeny Weeny images ever! :) Griffin is the brand new little bundle of one of our couples, Lori and Mike, and boy did he have fun in that mailbox!
Brynn was one of the happiest babies I have seen in a long time - she had a smile on from the moment she walked in the door to the second she left. She screamed and smiled and screamed and smiled... :)
