This last Saturday, June 21 2008, I photographed the wedding for the Dunlaps in Longview at the brand new First Baptist Church. My Sister-in-law Natalie Schneibel also photographed with me. She and I do weddings and events together. She is a very experienced and skilled photographer. We’ve been working together for the last year.

This was the very first wedding that took place in the church so it was a very special day for many reasons. I used to attend Longview First Baptist when I was in Junior High and High School. Seeing Pastor Kevin White brought back so many memories. It’s so nice to see them grow as a church family. Even though I now attend Grace Bible Fellowship in Kelso, I still miss a lot of the folks I used to go to church with there. Jennilee and Aaron have decided to make Longview First Baptist their home church.

I’ve been friends with Jennilee since we were little kids so it was natural for Jennilee to pick Lemon Drops Photography as her wedding photographer. We played softball together for years. I remember having slumber parties with the team. Two of my other good friends were bridesmaids. I felt like I was at a reunion. I think I had as much fun as they did, if not more.

The Kelso senior high school classmates now reside in longview with their two dogs. I personally am hoping they decide to expand their family soon with kids, but that’s purely for selfish reasons. I can’t wait until we get baby Dunlaps!!!

They are such a wonderful couple. I was honored to photograph their special day.

    The black and white picture with the pastor, “Uncle Moose”, is priceless….he had just told Jennilee to repeat after me as she gave him Aaron’s wedding ring. Just then he said “Boy is that a big ring!” Jennilee repeated on purpose to get him with more exaggeration “BOY! Is that a BIG ring!” Great to have captured it on film! Love all the pictures! Can hardly wait to see them all!
