Nathan and Elizabeth

We got to travel to southern Indiana for Nathan and Elizabeth's wedding. I lived in Evansville, Indiana for about 18 years, so it was a homecoming for me. The groom and I have known each other for about 14 years, and I was thrilled that he and his then fiancee asked us to photograph their wedding. Nathan and Elizabeth made for a beautiful couple to photograph. They are best friends, and it shows in their photos. The wedding was held in a small country church about 25 minutes west of Evansville.

We got things started with the groom and groomsmen. These guys were hilarious. It made holding the camera still difficult because I was laughing. I love it.

This family knows how to handle their time efficiently...

Do you remember when I said it was a small country church? Notice the gentlemen on the left, standing "behind" the bridal party...

Elizabeth looking fabulous by the natural light coming in from the stained glass window...

Kids bring a lot of character to photographs. Nathan was happy to oblige this young man with a super smile.

A gentleman and a scholar...

Elizabeth really liked the field behind the church. It was a wonderful backdrop for this tender moment.

Nathan spent an entire year learning how to play "Brown Eyed Girl" on the guitar. He wrote his own lyrics for this tune. He sang about how they met in college and fell in love. How cool is that? It had Elizabeth in tears.

Nathan & Liz - Thank you for entrusting us to capture the intimate moments of your wonderful day.

I never thought it would happen. I have a blog.

I never thought that I would have a blog. Who wants to hear what I have to say? My wife would say nobody, and I believe her.

Anyway, here I am, bloggin' away. I will post random thoughts and pictures from some of the photo sessions that we do. I hope to share with you the experiences we have and some of my favorite images from our sessions. We'll have some fun too. I will post some of the "outtakes" as well.

I've been doing photography and graphic design for 6 years now, and have enjoyed every minute of it.

This is me...Dan Rittichier...

I think the guy behind me was tempted to shove me off the chair.

I love what I do, and as you can see, I really get into my work. It's also apparent that I don't care what I look like while I'm working.

This is my beautiful wife and assistant, Jessica...

I still don't know how a woman so beautiful and down to earth would want a guy like me (see previous picture and comments).

Thanks for checking out the Studio 28 Blog! See us again soon!
