    Hi Parker,

    I love the quote on your website, “voted as #1 photographer for over 20 years” (my mom)!

    You are truly one of the most creative/talented photographers in this part of the universe, and you have a great sense of humor as compared to the many less humble posers out there. I salute you!ReplyCancel

    Oh, Jason. I love the photos of Scout. The last one is just so cool. He is adorable! And just think-you had something to do with that :) Sounds like you enjoyed your birthday. I appreciate your thoughts on enjoying life-keep those two who are beside you in focus and life will be good.

    The pics reminded me of when I went with you and your mama to the Ohio State Fair and Kings Island. Gee that’s been a while ago.

    Love ya,

This is one of those weddings that comes along that just seems to be made just for me. A perfect couple, perfect location (Black Mountain Sanctuary) , perfect light, perfect timing, just perfect. Did I mention Rachel is an archer, loves contra dancing and has a handsome new husband?! Congrats you two.

  • John Marcum - June 7, 2012 - 10:32 am

    It was fascinating watching Parker J. take these photos here at Black Mountain Sanctuary. It was an enchanted day, and a wonderful couple to work with. It was so creatively inspiring to watch him work, to see his process. Having confident command over the equipment and technical part of the equation allows for creative freedom I would say; and that creativity does flow! He works so masterfully with people, and is such a lovable guy too…he knows how to get the best out of everyone. I look forward to having Parker J. back for another wedding here soon hopefully!ReplyCancel
