Happy Halloweenie!

I am in love with this site: http://offbeatbride.com/ It's such a resource for people planning weddings who want to try something completely different. Or people who want to little different accents.

Check out the link for today, a spotlight on a Halloween wedding!

My favorite is the cake topper with a skeleton bride and groom with the sign: Love Never Dies!

Autumn and Jonathan


the first look...




I am in awe of this couple - their love for each other is this moving entity that followed them from place to place, saturating everyone around them. If I could redo my wedding day, I'd pick theirs.

Laughing bridesmaids, Sunset Ceremony, and breakdancers?!






This ceremony was one of the most breathtakingly beautiful ceremonies I have ever seen. And the wedding party was so excitable and fun to photograph. I'm so glad that I assisted at this wedding! And check out that awesome, breakdancing kid!!

Tatoos and Amusement Parks
















Vacation is never complete without abandoned, ghost-town amusement parks and tatoos.

high saturation, under eye circles gone!

the after... for some reason the before isn't uploading, I'll get it up here later!

I wish I had enough time to do this to more photos, but alas!
I created a bunch of layers- one to up saturation, one to increase contrast and brightness, one soft light duplication of the background. I added a mask on the saturation layer so Katie and Levi wouldn't be orange and cloned under their eyes to avoid serious shadows.
This is so fun!

Cute baby creativity


It’s so easy for wedding photographers to get “stuck in the rut” of wedding photography. Let’s face it: Many weddings are the same, and if you get a formula that works, it’s hard to try something new. That’s why I love being new at this: We’re still figuring out our formulas and we’re really excited about staying fresh and current. We’ve done millions of hours of research on what we like and don’t like about wedding photography; and what we don’t like is seeming stale or uniformed about trends. So we’re adding different things to our portfolio, like this photocard above. (This one’s a little crazy - but so is MacKenzie! We’ll have traditional and sweet examples soon. This is so cutting edge that we haven’t even made them yet!) They are custom-designed so that your wedding doesn’t feel like the same as everyone else’s. Instead it’s a representation of who you are and what brought the two of you together. More to come!!!
