Fire in the sky | Chippewa Twp Park

As I was driving home on route 51 in Chippewa, I kept watching the sky.  One minute it was pure white and snow was blowing creating a minimal visibility white-out and the next minute, the sky was as bright as a summer evening.  After arriving home I kept watching the sky change colors and told my wife, I will be back soon, I need to get an image of this sunset.  “What sunset? Its a whiteout!” Grabbing my camera bag, I was off and my goal was to head to Monaca and catch the sunset over the Ohio River but I didn’t believe I would make it before the sky changed again. Therefore, I went to a nearby park in Chippewa Twp, only minutes from my home.

Grabbing my tripod and bag I was off to the edge of the pond and was not disappointed with how the sky kept getting deeper with color.  I am not sure if it was a combination of the snow swirling in the sky or something else but it was beautiful.  I decided to use the widest lens I have which is a 7 – 14 mm f/4 (Panasonic) and welcomed the strong reflections on the water without the use of any filters.

Knowing that I didn’t have much time, I quickly set up my tripod, leveled the camera, exposed the scene, and was blown away with what the Lord provided me in the sky and painted on the water.

If you know me, you will often hear me say that we don’t need to travel far to find beauty in our neighborhood. There are an unbelievable number of places to photograph in Beaver County to show off the beauty and wonder that we were given.

 

Photography humor: Ever since switching to digital, I find there are only positives and no negatives.

January Beauty in Beaver County

Winter Beauty in Beaver County

There is no doubt that some will not believe I created this image on January 21, 2017 in Beaver County. It was a Saturday morning and I knew the mixture of the Sun and fog would create something that was pleasing to the eyes. This pond is minutes from my home in Chippewa Twp and one of the many treasures found in this area of the county.

The sun was peaking through the trees bathing the water and evergreens with an amazing color and the reflections on the water made it look almost as if it were a painting. I couldn’t pass up not capturing its beauty for others to enjoy.

I have traveled to many of the states of this beautiful nation and to other wonderful countries but there is nothing like visiting the areas around my home in Beaver County, PA.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. Psalm 1:3

Serbian Orthodox Wedding

If you never attended a Serbian Orthodox Wedding, you are in for an exciting event when you attend your first.  I photographed other orthodox weddings and similar events but never a Serbian Orthodox and enjoyed the entire day.  It started with the pre-wedding festivities where the family and close friends attended a party called a Skup at the bride’s home while she prepared for the day.    Guests were greeted with a Serbian band playing Serbian music not only during this part of the celebration but later during the reception when the guests participated in kolo dancing.

Kendralla Photography-D75_3407-EditWhile the bride and her bridesmaids are preparing for the day, the groom arrives and a toast is given by the father of the bride to welcome him into their family.  Laughter and more celebrating continues as the bride awaits her dad to see her for the first time.   More tears of joy as the dad views his beautiful daughter for the first time in her wedding gown on her special day.  Laughter and more tears follow as they embrace and others gather the family and friends to see her for the first time.

As she walks with her arm in her dad’s arm, the crowd of guests awaits her entrance. The little girls giggle as they see the beautiful bride descend the steps with her dad who in a few minutes will give a toast to his daughter.

After the toast and more celebrating, the bride and her bridesmaids leave for the church where a beautiful wedding celebration occurs.

 

 

Crowning of Groom at Serbian Orthodox Ceremony

Crowning of Groom at Serbian Orthodox Ceremony

They are crowned after the exchange of the rings (bethrothal) at the Royal Door and the binding of the cloth by the priest who crowns the groom first, then the bride.  The binding of the cloth which symbolises the bride and groom are bound for life is as beautiful as the crowning of the couple. The priest recites the crown blessing three times, (The servant of God, [groom’s name], is crowned unto the handmaiden of God, [bride’s name], in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.)

 

During the wedding ceremony, the choir sang from the choir loft adding a beautiful sound to the Serbian Orthodox Wedding.

After the service which includes drinking from the common cup and a procession three times around the altar, the wedding ceremony concludes.  The couple leaves the church and is greeted by family, friends, and the Serbian band playing.

Unlike other exits from a church, the couple is showered with coins and collected by children in attendance.

Later at the reception, the Serbian band plays and the crowd participated in Serbian Dancing and more fun filled activities.  The father of the bride gives his third toast of the day to the bride and groom followed by a toast by the kum.

The dancing, laughing, and the celebration continued into the night.

Congrats to Samantha and John!  Believing the best for your lives together!

Candid Moments in Life

Candid Moments in Life

The best moments are not planned

I took this image of my wife and two eldest grandkids is 2009. We were walking along a path that borders our property and the moment seemed perfect for an image.  The grandkids are now 13 and 11 but this image is one of my favorite images of all times.  My wife and I were going through the thousands of images I took of the family since 2001 and this one jumped out as a ‘must print and hang’ image.  We pondered the best scripture verse and decided that Psalm 46:10a, “Be still and know that I am God…” is perfect.

I printed this as an 11×14 and matted it to fit a 16×20 black frame for hanging in our living room.  This will join many other prints that we proudly display of our family and life.  My wife kept saying, this looks like something you would buy and hang on your wall from a Christian bookstore. 😀  One of the greatest compliments a photographer can get is when their spouse states they would pay for the image.

Some of the best images I took were not planned, staged, nor posed.  They just developed (pun intended).  Although this sat on my hard drive for 6 years after I processed it, the image remained ready to become a story teller.  However, I believe that an image isn’t a true picture until it is printed and hung on a wall for others to see and cherish.

No doubt this might have more meaning to us than it would to others, the connection of the viewer becomes when they can relate.  A mom can relate thinking when they walk hand in hand with their child(ren) or a grandma thinking to the day when she walks with her grandchildren.  Life is short and too often the only thing we have to trigger a happy and cherished memory is to look and hold our pictures.  There is a saying that a picture is art when it connects with the viewer.  I would add that a picture is an image when it tells a story that connects the viewer to the subject.

It is very important to preserve memories with photography but it is more important to print the images to share and hold.

What many do not realize is the image we take today isn’t for our benefit (today) but for the benefit of future generations or to comfort us years in the future.  I hope that one day my grandchildren will be blessed with children and grandchildren of their own and that this image will provide conversations they have with their families.  As I type this, tears flow down my cheeks.  Not of sorrow but of joy that a God given gift (vision and photography) can bring joy and happiness.  Tears of joy that memories are captured and preserved for future generations to enjoy.

With the advent of digital and the fact that nearly everyone has a camera (mobile device) and images are shared non-stop, my concern is that too many people fail to print their memories.  They show them off on their smart phone but when the smart phone breaks where are the memories.  Yes, more and more people store in the cloud but how many retrieve them from the cloud and display the images proudly on their walls?

Candid moments need preserved and cherished!

Mother’s day is quickly approaching.  Plan a time for pictures, preserving today for future generations.  We offer a session that includes both still and motion (video) with a multimedia show that brings laughter and tears wrapped in joy and happiness.

What is included in your wedding photography packages?

Wedding Show

A wedding show is part of our wedding photography packages

Our wedding shows tell a story from your wedding day. Since our coverage is full-day, your wedding show includes memories from all parts of your wedding. When you share the video with your family and friends, they will see parts of the wedding they were not privy to until now. The fun bridal portraits, images of your wedding rings, and your first dance as a couple.  When designing your wedding show, my goal is to create a lasting ‘snapshot’ of your wedding day.  It is something for you to share and look at years from now.

Obviously, the wedding show doesn’t include all of the images from your day since in many cases the total amount of images delivered are hundreds.  However, the wedding show includes images that provoke memories and capture the essence of your wedding day.  Below is an actual wedding show delivered to the couple on a DVD with an image from their wedding day as the cover.  The DVD plays in your standard DVD player attached to your TV and your computer. Additionally, an MP4 version is available for sharing online, playing on your tablet, smartphone, or other electronic device.

The ceremony was at the First Baptist Church in Aliquippa {Beaver County}.

What does your wedding photography package include?

If you ask yourself, “what should a wedding photography package include?” Know that our wedding photography packages are not typical because they include a multimedia based wedding show set to music for your enjoyment and sharing!

 

Wedding Package Example

Wedding Package Example

 

We share the dreams,
the smiles, the tears-
All life can ever bring.
But most of all, we share our
LOVE,
And that means everything.

Ducky Tours | Pittsburgh

Kendralla Photography-OMD96042.jpgKendralla Photography-OMD96090.jpgKendralla Photography-OMD96091.jpgKendralla Photography-OMD96132.jpgKendralla Photography-OMD96143.jpgKendralla Photography-OMD96155.jpgKendralla Photography-OMD96226.jpgKendralla Photography-OMD96231.jpgKendralla Photography-OMD96236.jpgKendralla Photography-OMD96273.jpg

Celebrating life in the city on a ducky tour.

 

“Family is not an important thing. It’s everything.” Michael J. Fox

 

We celebrated my wife’s birthday with our two eldest grandchildren, one of our brother in-laws, and my sister at multiple restaurants, a ducky tour of Pittsburgh, plus a ride up the incline.  After purchasing the ducky tickets, we went to the Hard Rock Cafe for lunch.  I am always hesitant for different restaurants since I am a “health nut” and often find it challenging for healthy alternative lunches.  However, the Hard Rock Cafe in Pittsburgh did an amazing job.  I asked for a ‘special’ salad, describing what I wanted and they delivered to the letter.  Now to my main point, if you buy tickets for DUCKY and decide to eat at the Hard Rock Cafe, look at the tickets.  They include a 15% off coupon for the Hard Rock Cafe and no I didn’t notice the coupon until we were getting ready to board the DUCKY. 🙁

We rode the white bus and were ‘entertained’ by a fun tour guy with a serious amount of hair (which I don’t have).  The weather was near perfect with slightly overcast skies and temperatures in the high 60’s to low 70.

DUCKY that we rode

DUCKY that we rode

The tour starts in Station Square and crosses the Smithfield Street Bridge into the city making its way to the North Side via the Roberto Clemente Bridge. Passing by his statue and PNC park, the DUCKY heads toward the access way of the river past the war memorials (which are amazing and are a visit in of their own). Entering into the river is fun and exciting as the kids cheer with the tour guide and captain of the ship.

The water motor kicks on and off we go into the Three Rivers of Pittsburgh.

We drove a short time on the water then the captain asked if any children wanted to drive the boat. One little boy raised his hand (so did I) and he had the opportunity to drive. Then the captain asked if anyone else wanted to drive and no other children wanted to drive. I kept asking 😀 – they then stated okay and I had the opportunity for a front and center view of the city and was able to get some amazing images.

After floating along the water, we traveled past the war memorials and into the North Side of Pittsburgh. Since my grandkids never rode an incline nor traveled to Mt Washington to view the city from the overlook, I felt it was a must do! 😀

Finding in LOVE with BRUSTER’s ice cream!

Falling in Love with Brusters Ice Cream

A toast to Hopewell Brusters! Thank you for your hospitality!

 

 

  Thank you Hopewell Brusters!

On a hot and humid day in Hopewell, Katie and Chad along with their wedding party visited the Hopewell Bruster’s on Broadhead Rd. across from the Hopewell Shopping Center. With welcome arms Brenda, Mario, and staff at Brusters served the hungry Bridal Party a variety of flavors and the 25 year anniversary, “Black Cherry Chocolate Chunk” definitely was a hit!

If you are in the Hopewell area and enjoy ice cream, stop by the Hopewell Brusters and get a picture in front of the now famous Hopewell Brusters.  {Maybe sneak a kiss from your sweetheart too!} 😀

As the bride and groom enjoyed a ‘sweet’ kiss, photo bombing was a must! 😀

Kodak Commercial Pictures Live Forever

Tremendous commercial emphasizing the importance of pictures.  One of my favorite commercials of all time!  Why?  Because it emphasizes the value and art of story telling through photography and just as important it shows the need to print your images.  Too often folks take pictures but they never print them or do anything with them other than post them to instagram, facebook, or other social media site.

 

“The pictures are talking . . . they are saying keep me, protect me, share me and I will live forever.”  I can hear them!

Wedding Day TimeLine

One of the best ways to reduce the stress for your wedding day is to have a timeline and assign the task of adhering to the timeline to an organized individual that will be available for your wedding day. My suggestion is for this person NOT to be your mom, sister, etc because the tension will develop and the last thing you want is to be upset on your wedding day.

Wedding Day Timeline

Time keeps clicking along

 {This is a long post and if you need help developing your timeline, when you hire me, I will help you in developing and sticking to the timeline.}

The best time to create the timeline is before you send out your wedding invitations while you are deciding when the reception and ceremony will start. There are a few ‘standard’ rules then there are rules which just ‘happen’.

Unless you are someone who wears a gown daily, then it will take you longer to navigate in and out of the transport vehicle and between chairs, etc.. I always suggest adding at least 15 minutes for getting into and out of a limo. If you are using a bus, then this might not be as challenging but allow time for every time you and your bridesmaids get in and out of the vehicles. Therefore, if you have a stop between the ceremony and reception for pictures, you need to add extra time. Keep in mind that you need to add time for freshening up your makeup, making a restroom stop, or just ‘chillin’.

 

Wedding Day Timeline – Beginning of the day:

 

Remember to eat and have fresh food available for your day. Time moves fast and there is a great chance you will ‘forget’ to eat then will not have time for a good meal before your wedding.

How long will it take for the bride’s hair? According to many stylists, one hour is the norm which is enough time for last-minute changes. If you are getting your hair done at a salon but are not putting the tiara until the last-minute, ensure someone understands how to put the tiara on you.

How long will it take for the bride’s makeup? Many makeup artists agree to allow at least 60 minutes. This is enough time to last-minute changes and some brides ‘cry’ early and the makeup needs ‘touched up’.

What about the bridesmaids and mom? It takes at least 30 minutes for their hair and another 30-45 minutes per person for the bridesmaids. If there is only one stylist and one makeup artist, it is important to permit enough time for everyone to get their hair and make up done.

If you are getting your hair done at your home or hotel room, then I suggest that the bride gets her hair done after her makeup. The bride can get her makeup done while the stylist is doing the bridesmaids hair.

 

When should the photographer arrive? I like to arrive one hour before the bride is ready. During this time I photograph the detail images. Such as the dress, shoes, something old, something new, etc. In addition, I am able to photograph the interaction between everyone including some of the fun images that are loved by almost everyone. When the bride is ready, I use this time to photograph her while her hair and make up are freshly done getting portraits of her alone as well as her with her bridesmaids and some of her family.

When there are children, I find that this is a great time to get images when they are not ‘tired’ of wearing their nice clothes.

 

What next in the wedding day timeline?

The groom, groomsmen, ushers, etc should arrive to the ceremony location 90 minutes prior to its start. Verify this with the wedding coördinator for the church or venue but 90 minutes is typically enough time. {During this time we use 30 minutes to photograph the ‘guys’ too.}

The bride should permit herself enough time for travel to the ceremony location plus time to relax before walking in. If there is a first look then permit at least 30 minutes for this to take place.

  •  How long is the ceremony? Depending on the minister or officiate, this will last 30-60 minutes. Certain denominations are slightly longer but the average ‘non’ denomination wedding is 30 minutes.

Receiving line – should we do one or should you exit then return and great each aisle dismissing the guests as a couple? That depends on you and what you plan for the day. The interaction between the couple and guests is well received when the couple dismisses each aisle. This takes slightly longer than the 15-20 minutes (100-150 guests) but the couple has enough time to interact and control the interaction. During this time, if we are your photographers, photograph some of the interaction and set-up for the formals.

 Keep in mind that some churches have a time when everyone must be departed from the church.

How much time between the service and reception? That depends on a few factors but keep in mind travel time and too often not everything goes as planned.

It is imperative that everyone is ‘prepared’. Announce early to the family they will get their pictures after the wedding.  It takes approximately 30 minutes for the formals depending on the size and scope of your family. Allow another 30 minutes for ‘creative’ images of the bride and groom alone and a few with the bridal party.

I always scope out alternative locations for pictures to save time on the wedding day.

The larger friends and extended family photos should be done at the reception and we include them during our no booth photo booth session time {ask for more details}.

 

Wedding Day TimeLine

Wedding Day Timeline | Even though the skies opened, because of proper planning we created an iconic image for the couple.

How long in the wedding day time is the reception?

Five to six hours is typical which includes one hour for cocktails or ‘early’ mingling while the guests wait for the arrival of the bride and groom. I take the photos of the parents during the formals first to enable them time to get to the reception and mingle plus ensure that everything is good at the venue.

 

Wedding Day Timeline – reception order?

  • First Dance – many will do the first dance after their entrance and before sitting down. This is always fun. Please discuss with the DJ NOT to use harsh color lights (purple, red, etc) during this dance. These colors or dots do not look good on the couple during this dance or the dance with bride/dad, groom/mom.
  • Father/Daughter Dance – some will do this dance immediately after the first dance and others will sit for the toast/blessing. Since it is YOUR wedding, there is no wrong way.
  • Toast/blessing –
  • Cake cutting – Some will cut the cake immediately after the first dance and before sitting and others will wait until later in the day. If you cut the cake immediately, then the venue has time to serve the cake with the meal and ensure the floor is clean for dancing.
  • Toasts by the maid/matron of honor followed by the best man
  • The bride/groom can do a toast thanking everyone for attending and helping
  • Dance – depending if the father/daughter – mother/son dance was earlier, you can do this dance immediately following dinner followed by the bridal
  • Bouquet and garter toss – usually two hours before the end of the reception and before everyone is too ‘partied out’. If you wait too long then some of the guest begin to leave.
  • No Booth Photo Booth – we normally will do this for 30-45 min immediately following the bouquet and garter toss.
  • Farewell – some will do a farewell – I have seen the bride and groom leave in a rented limo, sports car (from a guest), and a variety of other vehicles.
  • Sparklers – Not all sparklers are created equal – some burn slow (for weddings and events) while others are fast burning and smoke. An INTERNET search for wedding sparklers yields hundreds of options. Give your guests enough time to get in ‘line’ – typically ten minutes and have someone coordinate the lighting of the sparklers knowing that depending on the size of your wedding, it could take a few minutes for everyone to light the sparklers – be careful and verify with the venue that sparklers are permitted.

We are offering a Bridal Show Special – Please contact me for more information.
