Anyone who knows me, and knows me well, will be quite shocked that I have been shooting weddings as a
rookie, with fabulous Professional Photographers Wife and Husband Shannon and David Perlow, AND, I
have not yet, not even once, had a bit of the icing from the wedding cake. I know. You don't believe
me. I haven't even wiped my fingers neatly along the layer of icing at the bottom.  You know, that place
where no one would ever notice.  Have I been tempted?  You bet.  But, I am trying to be as professional
as possible.  AND, I have left both weddings prior to the serving of the cake.  Shannon thinks I am leaving
because I am tired, or quite possibly she thinks I am literally dying from heat exhaustion! Ha!  She doesn't know,
it's all about the icing! So. I am fortunate and blessed to have found mentors Shannon and David Perlow, owners of
Locke Innovations Photography, Dayton, Ohio at a workshop this past spring. They have been shooting Weddings for 10 years,
108 weddings, to be exact. That's a lot of weddings! Shannon and David compliment each other. Shannon runs the show
and is amazing at shooting just the right pose in amazing settings and lighting.  She has the day organized
and fine tuned, carefully making sure that nothing is overlooked.  Her attention to detail is perfectly
executed. David is right there capturing anything and everything with such creativity. I was so excited
to see the pictures from the first wedding of their season. They skillfully and thoughtfully captured,
what seemed to me, a novice to  Wedding Photography, to be every single moment of the  day. Their attention
to detail was flawless.  As I look at their pictures from the day, I am reminded of those once in a lifetime
special moments that are now forever remembered, thanks to Shannon and David. How fortunate am I to have such
accomplished mentors to guide me. This experience is truly the icing on the cake!

My Mentors: David and Shannon Perlow, Photographers and Owners of Locke Innovations Photography.

Shannon and David have been awarded Bride’s Choice from Wedding Wire 2009, 2010 & 2011 and

Best of Weddings from The Knot 2011
