pic of the day: say cheese!

This wedding was a little stressful for the couple: their outdoor setup got rained out. But they rolled with the punches and we ended up having a glorious time.
This was snapped at the reception venue as we waited for the rest of the family to join us for group photos. I love these expressions: they're both such hams! Love you guys. The rest of their photos are on facebook.
say cheese!

picture of the day: backlight

A friend wanted to practice shooting, so I set up a shoot with one of my favorite models. For about an hour we wandered around practicing posing, working with light, and generally having a great time. I loved the vibe of this shot. The rest of the shoot is here.

pic of the day: bomber

Since I'm currently in a lull before wedding season starts, I actually have a little more free time on my hands, and I'm trying to use it to get organized for the coming year, as well as catch up on all my other projects. So in the interest of sharing the things I run across, as well as keeping me sharp, I'm going to try to share one picture a day, either old or new, and why I love it or the story behind it. ::deep breath::

This photo is actually from this weekend; I did a shoot with a good friend of mine and we just played around and had fun. I was ecstatic to find out that she's verrry comfortable in front of the lens. I wasn't expecting that at all, but I shouldn't be surprised: she's one of the most unassuming, self-confident, genuine people I know.

Anyway, the shoot was a great time to bring out a little bit of the glamorous side of her, and we had a blast with it. I chose this photo because I love the way she manages to make an essentially practical, slightly ridiculous hat look fierce and ever-so-slightly sexy. Rock on!


There are a few more pictures from the shoot up on Flickr.
