I got a few hours of sleep last night then woke up bright and early to start working on Courtney and Brian’s Wedding pictures! I had such a good time shooting their wedding! The poor mom of the bride was so stressed out right before the wedding and it was so nice to see her get to relax and enjoy her family and friends during the reception! The dad had us all cracking up! He reminds me a lot of my own dad with his jokester way. The groom, Brian, and all of his grooms men were enjoying the festivities and was at complete ease the entire day! Not a worried bone in him! And the bride. . . Well Courtney is absolutely GORGEOUS! You could tell that Brian and Courtney were completely in love! They were such a wonderful couple to work with! I would be honored to take pictures for them anytime!

The ceremony was held at Edwards Mansion in Redlands, CA. This is the second wedding I have shot there and I really love how organized the staff is! The wedding coordinator was a sweetheart, and the DJ played some AWESOME music. Overall it was a great night!

I just again want to congratulate Courtney and Brian and here is your sneak peak!

March 30, 2008

Today was a busy day! I started out by waking up at 630am, where I put some clothes in the laundry. Then I made sure all of my camera batteries were charged and that all of my memory cards were empty! I also discovered that my hubby had stolen some of my AA batteries so I sent him to the store to buy me more while I jumped in the shower. Once I was ready it was time to go! First stop William’s birthday party! William turns TWO on March 31st! After his birthday I went home ate lunch and immediately went to Courtney and Brian’s Wedding! They are an adorable couple and I had a blast shooting their wedding! Here are a couple sneak peaks of their wedding pictures! More to come later but right now I am exhausted!

My new baby!

I will try to post more pics tomorrow along with some pics from William’s birthday party!

Obsession

March 21, 2008

I think I need to confess. . . that I have this small obsession. . . with HDR pictures! For those of you who don’t know what HDR is it basically means that you take 3 pics and combine them to give you a really freakin cool picture! I decided that I need to make HDR pictures. There is only one slight problem with that though, I have nothing interesting to take a picture of! SO just so I could get an idea of HOW to create an HDR image I took a snapshot of the “sunset”

just a reminder!

We went to the San Diego Wild Animal Park on Sunday. It was fun although the weather couldn’t make up it’s mind! One second it would be cloudy and freezing and the next it would be sunny and warm!!!

Regardless it is a great place to take pictures :)
