Spring is Here!

I couldn't resist snapping a few of these gorgeous pretties from my garden... antiqued and texturized, I believe I will be printing and hanging this one!

Folsom Bridge

I didn't notice the John 3:16 engraved on the Folsom bridge until I opened this image in lightroom. I created some dark contrast and over sharpened for a grungy look, that really causes the verse to pop. You never know what you might capture when you are out for a walk, it's always a good idea to have your camera handy!

Summer Wedding

Nothing says summer more than a wedding. This is a picture of my sister-in-laws flowers. They were in-between photos and I snapped this picture. I love that there really aren't any faces in the picture, yet it speaks volumes. :) I purposefully left the sunspots on the dress to add interest (hot summer feel), but patched and cloned out a cement water container on the ground.

The Golden Hour

One of my favorite things about summer is the sun... I don't mean the squelching 100 degree weather, but that golden hour before the sun sets that brings about the most amazing golden rays.

Now I must say that this is not the best composed shot. Nor does it have a beautiful background. The lighting wasn't all that great either. What makes this shot so beautiful are the people in it ... my brother and future sister-in-law. My brother has waited a long time for Mary and to see how God brought them together and the love they have for one another is beautiful thing. Even though this is not my most stunning photograph, the people make the shot amazing and that is what photography is all about for me.

The Sweetest Mother's Day Gift....

Tony and Nina wanted to surprise Mom with a brother-sister portrait for Mother's Day- how sweet is that? These are my two favorite shots, the sun was setting behind them and I made the most of the dramatic lighting, using my flash to keep the shadows at bay.
