Yesterday was Angie’ birthday and we took her out for lunch at one of her favorite places (the cheesecake factory) and to Mile High Photographers to hear a speaker (Jonathon Canlas) talk about film fine art wedding photography. It was refreshing to hear another experienced photographer talk about staying true to your vision as a photographer and artist. Our clients expect and want the way we see the world, not someone else. There are thousands of others photographers, what makes us different is how we think and see the world. The way each photographer sees the world is reflected in what cameras they shoot, how we process files and what we take pictures of.
I just had to post a few images from our new Fuji x100 that I got to shoot around with yesterday. I will be posting a lot more shots from this gorgeous camera in the weeks to come. It was a pleasure to use and the images files were gorgeous.
Clients look at us a like we are crazy sometimes. We talk about light as if it was drug that we needed. I heard someone, say when I was first starting out in photography. You are not really taking a picture of the people in the photograph you are taking a picture of the light on the subject. This may be a foreign concept for many clients, but without light you have no shape, texture, or color. Whats a picture without these things? Here is my bad sense of humor, everyone looks the same in the dark. Think of light as the wrapping paper around the subject. So next time we are rambling on about the light, you will better understand our obsession.
The wedding planning can be stressful. A few of the fun parts can be the engagement session and the cake tasting. I know since I have been through it. Getting out in some of the beautiful spaces Colorado has to offer with the person you are going to be marrying, makes for a great day. We have had a beautiful fall this year which made for a great backdrop for moments like the one below. I just love her smile and laugh it’s contagious.
We don’t advertise our Portrait side of the business at all. We have found over the years that much of the portrait sessions we do are for our wedding clients. The other half are referrals from those clients to their friends and family. Thats a great place for a business to be working with people that we really love and their friends and family. I wanted to share 2 teaser images from Christine’s Maternity Session. One thing I can say for sure is Christine was glowing.
