The Greatest of these is Love

During the summer of 2001 my sister helped out a couple of her campers by inviting them to my parent's home for the weekend. The two girls had come from the Allentown area and enjoyed camp so much they convinced their parents to let them stay for a second week. Rather than drive out to pick them up only to drive them back to Slippery Rock a day later, their parents asked if they could find a place to stay for the weekend. Keara offered our home.

The girls came home Saturday afternoon with Rob Gouge, Dan Adams, Sara Emorey (Flatt), Anne Gilmore, Keara, and I. We had a blast! Saturday we visited Pittsburgh's famous Three Rivers Regatta. Sunday they went to church. Sunday night we all went dumpster diving. The girls had so much fun that one of them, Shelena, decided to come back to Slippery Rock for several years, and even work there for two summers.

In the summer of 2007 she met a young man named James who was also counseling that summer. One thing led to another, and this weekend they got married. They asked Heidi Howell to shoot their wedding. Since it was Heidi's first wedding, she asked me to come as back-up. We had a blast!

These were just a few of the pictures of Shelena.

PS. Heidi did an excellent job on her very first wedding shoot! I know she'll be hired for many more to come.

Dumpster diving? As in, digging in trash cans? The pictures are great!
