Josh and Alissa ~ Wedding Photos Sneak Peek!

Posted with consent of the couple.
Last Saturday, I had so much fun photographing the wedding of this beautiful couple. Enjoy the photos! More are coming soon...

As soon as I saw this underground tunnel, I knew I had to get a picture inside it! By putting my camera on a tripod, I could slow down my shutter speed to pick up some of the ambient light (tunnels are dark by nature!). Then I gave one of my wonderful assistants a flash and had them position it behind my subjects to rim-light them. Viola!

Who would ever guess that the bride and groom are standing in front of a parking lot chock full of cars? No matter where you are, it's possible to get great images for your clients. I wanted a gorgeous outdoors shot with the church - or a hint of it! (Don't always show the whole thing! It's often a more exciting picture if you leave something to the imagination.)
As family and friends of Josh and Alissa, if you would like to purchase a print of any of these images or ones to come, click here to send me a quick message, and I'll email you a photo prints price list right away.

 "Time for me to wake up and get on with life! Enough of this photography stuff for a while."
