Leanne & Kevin Daughtry!

October 25th, 2008!

Testing out depth of field on the candle holders.

They had a beautiful handbell choir.

Making smart fast food choices. ;)

The papa.

I was not the actual photographer for this wedding. Jason brought along his 40D for me to practice, "Just in case." Not surprising, he's always supporting me in this. I wouldn't know much about my camera without him sharing his knowledge. Leanne is a good friend of ours so she loved letting me get some experience in before the actual photographers got there. I was more than thrilled and will be giving her a CD with these and more. They had such a beautiful and classy wedding at a perfect little white chapel. The reception followed at a nearby vineyard and was just lovely.

I actually was the second videographer for their wedding. I manned the stationery one at the front of the chapel. I don't think Jason's checked my part of the video (he's in India until Sunday) yet...we'll see! Maybe I'll switch professions. ;) No, probably not. He can stick to the video and I'll continue with the photos. By the way, he's extremely talented with pictures, too. His website is Check it out!

Congratulations Leanne and Kevin! They have recently returned from their honeymoon and she is glowing. Probably due to their awesome tropical location. I love you guys!

The adorable ring bearer. This was right before he bolted down the aisle.

Dana & Mike, "I now pronounce you..."

The night ended with a lot of laughter and dancing. Congrats to the happy couple!

This is the wedding of Dana and Mike. I was lucky enough to be a second shooter at their wedding with the amazing Sarah Seay. You should check out her website, she is wonderful! ( I was so excited shooting this wedding that I got a little teary eyed during the reception. My first wedding!

p.s. the coloring of the pictures is coming out weird on this website...i'm working on it.

Janet & Rodger favorite of the day.

Taken in the field near the farm where we used to ride our horses...

Janet & Rodger will get married May 16th, 2009!

So, I guess I should give some information about myself. My name is Toni-Lyn Keller, I am an artist. I've been involved in various forms of art for over half of my life now. I've always had a camera in my hand. However, it's been just recently I have been lucky enough to invest in photography more seriously. So, we'll see! Let me know what you think as I continue to post.

About the day: I was so excited to have rented a 50mm 1.4 lens for the occasion! Not to mention taking my little sister's engagement photos. I really couldn't be happier to be able to spend the day with them. We spent the whole day with Rodger cutting up and Janet laughing at him. Which is pretty much how it is with those two. At the end of the day they sat by a fountain behind the library and played in the water. Then Rodger pretended to be exhausted and asked me, "Is this the last picture?" When I told him it could be his face spread out in a huge sneaky grin. He quickly splashed Janet with fountain water and ran toward the bridge, snickering the whole time.
