Lance & Tara

Lance and Tara will be husband and wife come February. And I’ll be there with a camera. We did engagement shots yesterday, and the couple had plenty great ideas to match mine. We started things at Crabby’s on 7th street here in Joplin (thanks to the gracious staff there for letting us do a shoot in the middle of a restaurant!), then did a few shots outside and move into a gorgeous downtown building overlooking main street. Lance gave me the challenge of taking a long exposure shot of them that would capture all 3 colors of the traffic light outside the window; I happily complied, resulting in the shot at the bottom of this post.

Thanks so much to Lance and Tara for their patience (sitting motionless in the dark for long periods, etc!) and for pushing me to be as creative as possible on this one. A photographer needs subjects like these to stay sharp!


  1. Tara and Lance: Really great artistic pictures with extremely bright and artistic subjects. May God bless you future marriage. Love, Opa

  2. These are great! I love the light fixture in the second photo! What a beautiful place to get pictures. As always, you rock Mark.
