Kelly and Sebastian are Getting Married! April 28, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — Deb @ 9:16 am

I have the exciting opportunity to photograph Kelly and Sebastian’s wedding in November, so I really wanted to take them out for a few engagement shots.  Kelly and Sebastian are so much fun. They are both outdoorsy and sophisticated, and we were excited to show that in their pictures.  So we catered to their outdoorsy side and went to Lover’s Key for the engagement shoot.  We had an awesome time and we are going to do some more engagement shots in downtown Naples!  Here are a few favorites from the Lover’s Key session.

Erin’s Having a Girl!

I had the wonderful opportunity to do maternity shots for Erin as a surprise for her husband while he was away watching the Master’s Tournament in Augusta.  Erin was so much fun to work with and she was really upbeat despite fighting a cold.  I am also blessed with the opportunity to photography Brynlee Ann as soon as she is born.  I can’t wait!  Here are a few of our favorites from the photoshoot.

New Business Cards!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Deb @ 8:32 am

I am attending the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) donor event as both a guest and as the photographer.  I’m excited about the challenging opportunity to document an event.  It also forced me to get on the ball to get a business card design going.  Here’s our business card design!

I don’t have time to write or upload many photos, but I thought I would try uploading just one.  This is one of my favorites from my time with Kelly and Sebastian:

Second Shooting April 24, 2008

Filed under: Wedding — Deb @ 4:24 pm

I love having opportunities to be  a second shooter at weddings.  I get to experience the photographic flow of the wedding without the pressure of making sure all my shots are perfect.  It allows me to experiment with artistic vantage points and various exposures.  I am really excited because I get to second shoot with Shari Bare ( tomorrow!  Shari is such a warm and open person.  In fact, we asked her to shoot our wedding!  She didn’t really need a second shooter for this wedding, but she knew I wanted another opportunity to get out there with my camera and she uses a handful of my shots.  I learn a lot from working with her — I will be helping her set up some new lighting tricks, I get to pick her brain while we work, and I watch her in action.  I couldn’t ask for any more!  I have two solo weddings coming up, and I am excited for some extra practice beforehand.

I’ll be using my 5D and my dad’s 5D with my 28-75mm f2.8 and 70-200mm f4 L for most of the shots.  I’ll sneak my 85mm f1.8 in my bag for some “prime” shooting opportunities.  Shari and I talked on the phone for an hour about this shoot and about photography in general. It’s great to talk to other photographers in town — I get so many ideas and am so encouraged!

I just ordered a new lens — a 70-200mm f2.8L IS — to replace my other 70-200mm lens.  But unfortunately I won’t have it for this shoot.  I can’t wait for it to come in!


New Website! April 23, 2008

I decided to start a new blog to write about my experiences with photography.  I am excited about all the opportunities I have to get better, and I can’t wait to update this with pictures from my latest shoots.  Comments are always welcome.
