Katie's Bridal Session

Heather and I have started shooting sessions together when we can. It really helps to have someone there to hold a light or do whatever we need to do. We both enjoy our job and shooting anytime we have a chance!

We had a blast shooting Katie's bridal session. It is always nice to have somewhere new to do a session. The hardest part of this session was narrowing down the pictures I wanted to put on my blog! Seriously, this girl can't take a bad picture! I am going to go ahead and post a few from her session.

I Spent the Morning with George Clooney! (and Renee Zellweger)

When I got up this morning, I had a text message from Heather from the night before. She wanted to know if I would go to Salisbury with her to see George Clooney and Renee Zellweger. I am not a celebrity stalker, so I never attend events like this. But, I decided to go with her! I texted her back "OK" Then I decided to wake her up and make sure she got my text message! I mean we are talking George Clooney, according to people magazine, the sexiest man alive. I had to see if it was true. IT WAS! Here are a few of the pictures I took today! The one in the train window was taken by my daughter, Kate Ashbrook. (Also a wedding photographer!) Heather and I had taken LONG zoom lenses, not thinking we would be so close! I actually got his and Renee's autograph! Pretty exciting, huh! I will post more later, I have to do mundane things now like cook dinner! What a day!

I decided to retouch this one a bit.

These two are pictures Kate took today.

Jeff and Elizabeth's Engagement Session

This was an unusual engagement session! We started at Carrigan Farms, and moved on to the Lazy 5 Ranch. I was surprised to see so many animals! They have camels, zebras, and giraffees among other animals with names I can't remember. Imagine my surprise when they came up to my car and stuck their heads inside! I couldn't reach for my camera fast enough!

I met Jeff a couple of years ago, and was surprised he remembered I was a photographer. Liz had been in contact with me through email, I was excited when I found out it was Jeff's wedding I was going to be doing! Jeff doesn't meet a stranger, He is one of the nicest young men I have ever met. You can tell he adores Liz, the way he looks at her is priceless! Liz is VERY sweet. Even the giraffes loved her! One of the giraffes was reaching over the cage toward her. When I tried to move closer for a better picture, they took off!

Imagine my surprise when this little fellow stuck his head in my window! Everyone knows I have a bird and I love birds, but this little baby was BIG!!

A Few More Pictures

I have to admit, playing with these pictures is keeping me away from the refrigerator!
I am trying to follow Weight Watchers a little better this month. I was glad I hadn't gained weight since we stayed in the party house where all the candy was kept! Here are a couple of images taken at the workshop. It was actually pitch black outside when the first picture was taken. I love the way this couple were dressed! Who would have known that a coat and hat could look so cool! Of course, the couple weren't half bad either. They could certainly be models.

Here is another retouched image. They are actually dancers.

Another Couple of Pictures from the Workshop

I was so busy at the workshop, I really didn't have time to post images! Most people think that shooting digital is easier than shooting film. Wrong! In the film days I was finished when I took the film out of the camera. Now there are so many options available it takes forever to get pictures ready for our clients. Here is an example of what comes out of the camera and what can be done with it if you have a lot of patience!

Here is another retouched image.
