Buffalo River Engagement Session - Arkansas Wedding and Portrait Photographers - Shannon and Dana

By trinityridge in engagements engagement session buffalo river arkansas

First of all, let me say that the area around the Buffalo River near Ponca and Jasper is one of my favorite places in the world.  We actually own land and a small cabin not far from Ponca and I absolutely love it there.  There's just something about the mountains and the unpopulated gorgeous landscape that makes my heart skip a beat. :)  So, naturally, I was excited when Shannon and Dana wanted a rustic country atmosphere for their portraits and agreed to meet us there.  They drove all the way from Benton, AR hauling their Harley Davidson motorcycle just for an engagement session!  (Too bad they were having a destination wedding far away!)  Seriously, though, Shannon and Dana were great to shoot.  We had so much fun running around in the fields and the woods and the old homesteads.  Hope you enjoy the portraits as much as we enjoyed creating them!! :)

Mt. Nebo Wedding - Arkansas Wedding Photographers - Seth and Krista

Oh my goodness, Krista and Seth's wedding at Mt. Nebo in central Arkansas was GORGEOUS!!!  First of all...what a beautiful couple - LOVE them. :)  Krista and Seth had such fun personalities - their wedding was complete with neon sunglasses and dancing and funny hats in the photobooth.  To top it all off, the wedding was on top of a mountain with probably the most amazing views I have ever seen in all of Arkansas.  Wow.  Really - WOW.  You'll notice the first few portraits are of the "first look" - love it when the Bride and Groom decide to see each other before the wedding and they get that intimate moment to take it all in.  Also...totally adored the three generation of hands...bride, mother, and grandmother!

So, if you love Fall and pumpkins and bright leaves and twinkling prepared to fall in love with this wedding. :)

ItWorks - My Experience :)

By trinityridge in personal itworks stretch marks weight loss wraps

Over the last several months, I've seen and heard a lot about these wraps from ItWorks.  From what I saw in before and after pics, they seemed to tone flabby bellies (I can say that because I have one of my own - lol), tightening loose skin and reshaping a bit.  I had thought about trying one just to see if it made a noticeable difference but it was more of a fleeting thought until one of my acquaintances from church became a distributor.  So, last week I was able to get my first wrap!  I used it around my waistline.  My personal experience with it was good.  It was easy to put on and felt good for the 45 minutes I had to wear it.  The biggest changes I noticed afterwards were my stretch marks being much less noticeable and my skin (which is loose and flabby due to a pregnancy where my belly was ginormous) seemed to be lifted and toned esp. around my navel.  These are the changes I noticed after just one wrap.  From what I understand, although you can try just one, when you purchase the package it comes with 4 (and you can use them almost anywhere on your body).  I wouldn't say that this is some miracle product that will make you go from a size 20 to a size 2 but at either size, I think it's great for dealing with loose skin, toning, helping to deal with stretch marks, and getting rid of the puffy bloated look.  It would also be a fabulous thing to do before a boudoir shoot, wedding, high school reunion, etc.  I plan on trying more of the wraps and probably their vitamins, too, in the near future.  If you want to see my results, try a wrap, or purchase products - please check out my friend's site (you can email her and request to see before/after pics - or you can see them on her facebook page -

Happy wrapping! :)
