I haven't had much of a chance lately to explore outdoors and capture all those gorgeous fall colors, but I did manage to snap this shot of one of our bushes. I love the deep reds and purples showing this time of year.
I also happened upon this beauty in our neighbor's garden.
I rented this baby for the wedding last weekend, and the one I'm shooting with Sarah next weekend. Sadly, I was way too busy to capture many images at my sister's wedding, so I haven't used it much yet. It is a monster and delivers some gorgeous compression and creamy bokeh!! I love what I've seen so far and can't wait to use it for a Senior shoot tomorrow.
Here's one of the first shots I took with that lens. Granted it's not a fantastic image, but I just love what's going on in the background. I didn't enhance that at all in processing, except to throw the old film style preset on it in LR.
Here's a favorite of mine from the rehearsal dinner. We were watching a slide show I made of the happy couple from their early years through present day. Talk about a walk down memory lane!
I loved capturing the reactions of family and friends. I didn't want to distract everyone with my flash going off, so I cranked my ISO up to 5000 in the dark room and shot at f/2.8.
They aren't portrait-worthy, but I was able to capture the scene without disrupting it.
Here's a shot of my handsome hubby and baby girl all decked out.
And the bouquet I carried as maid-of-honor. The flowers were amazing! I'm so thrilled for the newlyweds and thankful we were able to share in their day surrounded by family and friends. I will take away many happy memories from last weekend, even if I wasn't able to capture many of them on camera. Thankfully she had an awesome photographer who spent 9 hours at the wedding site! I can't wait to see those pics!!!
And here's one more I have to share. My big girl lost her first tooth last week! Followed shortly after by her second ;)
That's it for last week. What have you been up to?
Thanks so much for stopping by!
