    Rajan and Rashmi were a great deal of fun to work with on their wedding day! There was a lot of activity, and we even snagged our friend, Linda Drish of Drish Photography, to help us capture it all. We always enjoy cultural experiences, and this was no exception. Congratulations, Raj and Rashmi.... may your lives be filled with grace and blessings. Thank you for letting us be a part of your lives!

    Just a reminder if you haven't been to the website for a while, that October 25 is the last date to get into GP for senior pictures. So, if you've got a friend who hasn't scheduled their session yet, tell them to get it in gear, and call us! You have two months!

    As I'm posting seniors' previews this year, I'm adding a feature called "A Bit About Me". Instead of me telling you about a senior, I let them tell you about themselves!

    We managed to acquire an old piano from some friends of ours from church, and we hauled it into a flower bed in our backyard for Emily's pictures. Of course, its still there because moving it isn't easy. It made for some awesome pictures though, and I'm sure it will get used again!

    First of all, how many of us read tons of blogs each day? Yes, Rodney, I see that hand. Did you ever wonder if there is an easier way to check all of your favorite blogs (including, but not limited to this blog)? Well, good news! There is! Okay, so maybe it's old hat, but it's new for me. Check out


    Here, you enter the URL of all of your favorite blogs and all you do is check ONE website instead of 10, or however many blogs you read. Go ahead, try it. It sorts all of your blogs based on most recent posts...I'm liking it alot.

    Secondly, for those of you who frequent the popular social community known as Facebook, I've set up a group called "Gehman Photography" (oddly enough) and here's a place where you can see what people are saying about GP. You can add input, like "I wish that Rodney would come along on more shoots, because he's a great photographer too" or "It's so cool that you have FREE POP AND WATER for all of your clients, now". :) Anyway, you can check it out. Here's the link: GP Facebook

    Neil and Anna had the sweetest little wedding chapel to get married in! There was no A/C in this little church, but everyone was pretty good about the heat. What a beautiful wedding for a beautiful couple! Congratulations guys!
