Autumn - A walk to Remember~

I love to walk in the park. Aside from the bird shit all over the trail, it’s really nice there. We don’t do it often enough though, and I think we should work on that. And it’s never really the same every day, there’s always things going on, new people to see and even newer things to photograph....more

New to Blogging!

Well, I am giving blogging a try for the first time today and want to say Hello to everyone!

Event Photography Tips to Take You Pro

I’m not a professional photographer by any stretch, but somehow, by both design and accident, I've shot a handful of weddings in the years since I got my first DSLR camera. For the two weddings for which I was paid as the main photographer (yikes!), I covered my butt by making the brides acknowledge a dozen times that I wasn’t a pro and couldn’t promise a pro-quality photo package and I'm just a lowly girl with a camera and please don't hate me if my photos aren't like the ones in the magazines....more
