                     After the concert, there was a special reception to honor the 15th anniversary of the radio program "A Moment In Time".  The voice and creator of "A Moment In Time" is Dan Roberts (above), the University of Richmond history professor who started the idea back in 1993. He is certainly enthusiastic about educating us about history. You can hear him every week-day morning on WCVE FM, the local NPR station (88.9 FM - Richmond).

January 27, 2009 // Information / tips
Meet the DJ Night is an innovative idea created by Bill Giliam, owner of Choice Entertainment. It gives couples a chance to see a multitude of professional DJs in person. The DJs actually perform in 3 to 4 minute short auditions, and you get a chance to meet them and learn more about their personalities and their style. Meanwhile, the facility where it is held is adorned like a wedding reception, complete with a certain British cake baker, a chocolate fountain, plenty of food, an open bar and even video coverage (tonight it was United Video - cool folks). I was invited to serve as the token wedding photographer, but I certainly enjoyed every minute. 

Bill was at his best - at the microphone, as he introduced a wedding couple to the dance floor (actually actors).

January 24, 2009 // Wedding
Saturday - Jan 24th: A wonderful wedding in rural King & Queen county - near West Point, VA.. After the ceremony, I suggested that we head over to an old country store that I noticed across from the church. It was the perfect setting to shoot these images.
