I need to choose a single image to represent my wedding photography in an Ad. Here are some of my favorites…..leave me a comment and let me know which one you think I should use, and why.
This Saturday is the Dance Recital for The Dance Company in Kingsburg. My daughter has danced with the studio since the day they opened. She know is a teacher’s aide along with a student at TDC. Friday was her dress rehearsal. Here are a few of my favorite images from the rehearsal…..The first three are numbers that my daughter is in. The last image is from a number called “Cinderella.” My daughter is not in this number, but it was one of my favorite images of the day.
This one is short and sweet. I love working with children in the studio. I enjoy taking multiple shots and combining them into one piece to capture a more complete glimpse into their personalities! I love my job! This is from a session this past week.
The past month has found me buried in weddings and High School Seniors. I figured it was about time to try and start catching up on my blog once again!
Thursday afternoon before the incredible lightning storm we had here, I had the privilege of having Alyssa and her family in my studio. During our consultation the week before I learned a few things about Alyssa, and we decided on some props for her to bring. These props included her FFA jacket, her flute, her softball gear (she’s a catcher), and dad’s motorcycle. We had a blast.
One of the images we were both excited about creating was the shot in her catcher gear. I do a lot of custom work in my studio, and have found that it’s the clients that have strong personalities, or interests that are the easiest to design custom work for. We laughed a lot on Thursday afternoon. Matter of fact, there were a few shots I’d try to take without her smiling….and we’d all end up laughing again anyway. But…once she put her catcher gear on, I had to work hard to even get a tiny grin out of her. She’s all business once she’s in her gear.
For those of you that know my family, my daughter is a huge baseball fan. She has a shirt that has a baseball diamond on the front of it, with the saying “The baseball diamond is this girl’s best friend.” I thought that Diamonds are a girl’s best friend would be a great title for the piece. Here’s the custom piece that was designed with the images of her in her gear…..
Congratulations to Carmen and Scott!
Once again this past Saturday I had the joy of capturing the memories from a wedding. The wedding and reception were both held at The Victorian Gardens of Two Sisters in Kingsburg. It is an absolutely beautiful location. The owners are great to work with.
I started off the day taking a few bridal portraits of Carmen. Isn’t she gorgeous?
After Carmen it was the guys turn. They wanted to have a bit of fun with their pictures.
If I remember correctly this was called the human wall. If you’ve ever watched a soccer game, this stance should look familiar.
After the wedding I spent some time alone with Carmen and Scott. I love her smile, it’s absolutely infectious.
They got the almost kiss right too!
This was taken during their first dance. The couple tends to look towards me and “pose”, so I love when I have a second photographer with me.
Tracie helped me out with this reception. While the couple “poses” towards me, she’s able to get some absolutely wonderful candids!
This one is mine. I love catching those moments.
Carmen tossed the bouquet halfway to the moon! This was taken just after sunset, so I love the deep, deep blues still left in the sky.
Then came time for Scott to get the garter. The DJ told him he couldn’t use his hands.
Scott tossed the garter pretty well too, but I don’t think it caught as much air as the bouquet did. I love looking in the background and seeing Carmen’s son being hoisted into the air to catch the garter.
I thought the next few shots were hilarious. There were disposable cameras placed on the tables for the guests to use during the reception. I think they have about 30 pictures of me taking photos. This gentleman was the first. Then came little Joshua, and then little Mia. I had snuck up on Mia while she was getting some candy and took her picture. The rest of the night she’d run up to me with one o f the disposable cameras, snap a frame off and exclaim, “I snucked up on you!” It made me smile every time
Carmen and Scott, thank you for asking me to be a part of your special day by capturing the memories as they happened. It was truly a joy and I wish you much happiness together!
