| AHS & RHS Alumni Band 2018 |

Homecoming season is here and with that comes special halftime shows and activities for all of our local schools and bands.  I once again had the honor of capturing my alama mater’s alumni band this year!  The AHS/RHS Alumni Band was strong with many members returning to help celebrate homecoming and to pick up their instruments one more time!  Having been a member of the Marching Bluestreaks in high school, I know that the traditions run deep, the pride is strong, and there’s nothing like the sound of the drum cadences while marching!  It was amazing to see so many alumni standing next to current marching band students and to hear all of them together made you proud.  What a wonderful job by all alumni, students, and those whom helped to bring the evening together, looking forward to next year!  Thank you AHS/RHS members for an amazing evening, you sounded great!

Happy 50th Anniversary to this fantastic couple!  I got to capture something a little different for a change last weekend, not a wedding or family session, but an anniversary party!  It was fun to walk around and capture the events of the evening, mingle, and share stories with everyone.  It just so happens that Norbert & Marie are not only neighbors and friends, but family as well!  From cake and great food, to tractors and polka, it was a great day!  Something that many don’t know about my family is there have been and are some amazing polka bands in it!  I grew up attending polka and square dances, and listening to Norbert’s band, Happy Times Polka, practice on warm summer nights from down the road!  Polka is so much a part of our family that we had Happy Times Polka join our DeeJay at our wedding to share some sets!  Happy Anniversary Norbert & Marie and cheers to many more!

Fall, the smell of falling leaves, cool rains, pumpkins, mums, it’s my favorite time of the year! October also means it’s Archbold High School & Ridgeville High School Alumni Band night! I am honored to be able to capture this evening each year, to see faces I don’t see often, catch up with them, and reminisce! What started out as a rainy morning and afternoon, turned into a gorgeous night for everyone. Events are such a fun thing to capture, you never know what’s going to happen, a drummer could break out into dancing to James Brown or the flag girls could lift trumpet player! A huge thank you to all involved for making this evening happen for the Alumni, the 2017 AHS Marching Band, the speaker Mr. Hoverman, current AHS Band Director Beth Voll & her amazing staff, it was a fun night to be a part of! Looking forward to next year already! Go Streaks & Falcons!
