Posted in couples, friends, hotel, love, tate tullier photography, wedding on July 18, 2009 by tatephoto

Alyssa and Matt are two friends we had while we were at Gallaudet University. I was so honored when they asked me to photograph their wedding this past weekend here in Altamonte (right out of Orlando), Florida! We have had nothing but a ball! Here is a preview of their wedding day – there were just too many to choose, so here are random choosings!

Enjoy! Thank you again to the Terry couple for having me do their special day. Thanks to their families for the food, the nice hotel room, and nothing but all smiles!

SABRINA & STEVE HUBMER WEDDING!

Posted in couples, friends, love, tate, tate tullier photography, wedding on July 13, 2009 by tatephoto

I had a blast up in Faribault, Minnesota for the Sabrina/Steve wedding festivities. They’re definitely the MOST ACTIVE couple I’ve ever had to keep up with! Upon landing into Minnesota, I got a page saying “Paintball?!?” which I declined because I knew I was so worn out and just needed to chill back. I stayed with Lisa and Sonny Wasilowski the entire weekend (THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!) and it was great seeing Gallaudet friends after a good while. That evening, I went “out” to Bashers/Spike with the bride and two of her bridesmaids – we had a ball. The next day was rehearsal, sand volleyball, rehearsal BBQ, Softball game, and more partying at the parksite. Saturday was the big day!!! From 11am to midnight – it was on the GO GO GO GO! We all had a blast and I really was pleasantly surprised with how unique their ceremony was. They are both BIG basketball fans and they incorporated the MSAD gym into it. Their Mistress of Ceremonies/Announcer did the introductions of the wedding party as if introducing the players before a basketball game. The scoreboard had 7-11 (home/guest) to represent their wedding date of July 11th! At the end, Steve had to do a layup at the basketball goal. It was absolutely charming!

Here are some random photos I edited quickly for a preview for S/S and y’all! Enjoy them. I’ll be crazy busy today till Wednesday working on June edits before taking off to Florida for Alyssa and Matt’s wedding on Thursday. CRRAAAZZYYY.

Mr. & Mrs. Coleman!

Posted in couples, friends, love, tate tullier photography, wedding on July 7, 2009 by tatephoto

Tamijo & Jason’s wedding was a BLAST this past Sunday in Lake Elsinore. They both make a gorgeous couple, and everyone else at the wedding all just looked great! Afterwards, they hosted as post party at the hotel pool/hot tub and we had tons of fun! We did some “trash the dress” shots, and they jumped into the pool for a mini session!

I’m in the middle of editing Cynthia and Brent’s wedding so I better get to posting these photos, then getting back to work again.

Enjoy this preview! Thank you again to Tamijo & Jason, for hiring me to do your big day! Thank you to Derrick for dropping me off at the Ontario airport yesterday.

Kevin & Laura Stephan Wedding Portraits

Posted in couples, love, tate tullier photography, wedding on June 29, 2009 by tatephoto

I always love it when my bride and groom puts a good amount of time aside to do wedding portraits. It kind of sucks in when we just don’t have enough time to do this sort of shoot. Kevin and Laura did the opposite! We got to pull over en route to the country club onto this park grounds to do some shooting. We had a ball! Then once we got to the country club – they wanted to do even more – THAT is a photographer’s dream! I know it may feel like you’re taking away from the wedding celebration but really – photos are a lasting memory and with all the moolah you spend on me/the big day – it’s all worthwhile! Those few moments you “miss” at the reception are bound to be made up once the party starts! It’s all a matter of “in between” finances that I know some people can’t afford to do a cocktail hour, blah blah – but even an extra 15 minutes gives us a HUGE window to really get some awesome portraits down without all the guests/family around with the emotion high at it’s highest!

If you CAN – DO it. If not, at least throw in another 10-20 minutes aside without the family/friends distraction after the ceremony to do this sort of session. Also, you have to make sure and GIVE me permission to be agressive on making sure you DO get these sort of photos – because I HATE pushing buttons and over/and over/and over saying “Let’s do this… that…..” when I know you’re so overwhelmed with everything going on. Give me permission and I’ll be an extra amount of aggressive!

Check out these freakin’ awesome shots of the Philly couple – Kevin and Laura Stephan!

How the hell do I keep up?

Posted in art, baby, couples, friends, kids, love, pregnant, tate tullier photography on June 27, 2009 by tatephoto

It’s getting to be impossible to keep up with my own schedule! I have MAJOR respect for other photographers who are able to stay on top of things (editing, shooting, scheduling, emails, networking, blogging, website updating, advertising) and all WHILE maintaining a “normal” life!

It’s Saturday and I spent last night drinking with my good friend, Whiskey, trying to organize for today’s garage sale with Sarah, Brooke and Rose (thanks girls!)….. eventually we all turned in around 1:30am. I woke up at 5:30 am to get all our stuff out on our carport for the sale from 7am-3pm. I spent all day in this sorching heat, selling and mid-day Emily came with Brooks to do his 6 month photos! Betsey also came along as well. Miquel was sorely missed (like I told you, we’re always thinking of you every other day and just wish you lived down the road from us!). By 2pm – we just had enough of garage sale’ing and gave up – profitted $240 from today. From there – we packed up our Commander and headed over to the donation center at the Fellowship. Finish!

Sarah went in and took a hot bath, and she’s not responding to my IM’s so obvious she’s napping! I am still filthy from sweating all day. I come in the office to check emails and end up editing! I love my work, and MAN – I just wish I had MORE time to do it. I think the more I do my own editing – the more perfectionist I make myself. I am consistenly pushing myself to take it up a notch for you, my clients. I want to provide you with some photographs that just scream WOW. I want you to WANT to hang it up on your wall – not tuck it away in an album somewhere gathering dust (but that’s fine too!).

Check out these shots! These are just “one” shot from past shoots I’ve done in the past few weeks of June but just never got to post for y’all to get a preview! I love, love, love, love, love how they’re turning out!!

I know I say it so often but THANK you so much for trying to be such patient clients. Thank you SO much for your business. THANK you for the referrals. Thank you so much for all of it.

IMG_0228This last shot is pretty interesting. Not a typical one I include in a wedding album but it just gives me an actual cinematic vibe. Sorta the Pat Rack days – maybe? What do you think?

Thanks Laura and Kevin!! *FYI – y’all – they’re on their honeymoon right now!!!!! Hope they’re checking stuff online from time to time.

Have a great weekend. Rest In Peace Farrah Fawcett & Michael Jackson. Tomorrow is our Garage Sale. So. Much. To. Do.

Rock. And. Roll.

The Beaches!

Posted in couples, love, tate tullier photography, wedding on June 21, 2009 by tatephoto

Brooke and Michael got hitched last night in Denham Springs. It was a great event – Sarah and I spent all day with Brooke while she and her bridesmaids got all pretty’d up. By 6pm, it was time to walk over to the First United Methodist Church (which was one block away from her aunt’s house, which is where the reception was held). After the ceremony, we all headed back to the house/reception and just had a great time eating good food (they had fried green tomatoes!), dancing, and socializing.

Here’s a preview of their wedding day. Thank you again to you, Brooke and Michael for having me do your special day!
