Welcome Taylor!

Last Wednesday, I finally had the privilege of meeting Taylor Blayne for the first time since her birth one month ago. Her mother, Nicole, and I go back a few years as co-workers at a school for visually impaired children. I know everyone says that all babies are cute, but Taylor tops them all...she's beautiful! She was the perfect model and was very tolerant of her first little photo shoot.

Christin & Zac: June 9, 2007

Christin was one of the very first brides I met with at the beginning of the year, and she was just as excited then as she was on Saturday. All brides are beautiful, but Christin had a light about her that seemed to radiate beauty in itself; she also displayed a unique sense of calmness. I had the privilege of meeting Zac for the first time just before he and Christin were about to see each other. I asked if he was nervous and he said, "How can you be nervous when you know you are doing the right thing." I am certain that this marriage was the right thing for both of them. I was given the opportunity to be in the room to photograph as they both saw each other for the first time, and was able to see what made these two right for each other. Zac seemed almost breathless at the site of his soon-to-be wife. They each presented gifts to one another and I left them alone for a few more minutes before we began shooting the formals.

The formal shots took a little bit of time; we had several shots on our list, but the groom and his father (Mike) kept things light with their great sense of humor and just plain ol' overall goofiness.

The ceremony was beautiful and the ministers' words were uplifting and encouraging as he challenged Christin and Zac to strive for a Godly marriage. The reception immediately followed at the Wyandotte County Park. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and the night went on with lots of dancing. There were stories of how Zac and Christin met, along with words of wisdom and advice from couples who had been married for years...and let's not forget the special music from the fraternity brothers!
This was a unique wedding for me, in that, two of my other brides-to-be were also in attendance. Rebekah, a friend of the bride, whose reception I will cover in October, and the maid of honor, and sister to the bride, Jennifer. She and Christin booked with me at almost the same time. Jennifer's wedding will be in September and I am looking forward to getting to know this family even more.

Christin and Zac...it was such an honor to be a part of your day! Thank you for trusting me with your memories! God bless you in your new life together!

Kathy & Michael

My drive to Baldwin City was well worth the time for these two. The campus at Baker University was beautiful and provided us with an amazing setting. Kathy and Michael were such a fun couple to photograph...just another reminder of why I do what I do. (This seems to be happening quite often with the couples I've met recently.) Their wedding is set for November and I can hardly wait!

About Christina

One of my favorite memories from my own wedding, aside from marrying my husband, was when my Dad walked me down the aisle and I leaned over and whispered to him, "I'll always be your little girl."  I love that moment!
     It's moments that make up our lives, defines who we are, and ultimately create our destinies.  Many such moments have brought me to where I am today.  I began photographing in 2001, and began Sandberg Photography in the fall of 2006.  This has been a huge dream of mine, and I believe that God has given me a gift of capturing unique and special moments; without Him, I am truly nothing!  I owe this dream to Him!
