Image of the Day – By yours truly

Well today I simply shot for the love of shooting!!! NO Deadlines!! No proofing!!!!! NO SLIDESHOWS!!!! Just for the love of shooting!!!! Here is my wife and my son on a boardwalk right outside of our condo.  I think this was my favorite image of the day!!!!! Vacation is a good thing for me right now!! I have needed one for a long time to refocus my mind and sharpen my creative instincts.  Have a wonderful evening!

Here is my favorite shot from today.

Paul & Karen Wedding —– Preview

Well I just had to jump on a few of these images this morning. I actually could not sleep just thinking about some of the pics we had captured. Well TRUST ME this is not the best of them and I am in love with these images. You will have to wait a few more days to view them all. So without further ramblings from me….Here are 5 images that caught my eye upon import.

While Karen was getting into her dress. I caught this shot.

This house or should I say mansion was the house the bridal party stayed in. As soon as I arrived at Monteluce I saw this tower and had to have this shot….

I don’t know why but I really like these next 2 images

How cool are they…

There are so many detail shots from this wedding. I will give you a full write up in a few days but check out these candle holders at the bar area…I had to put the rings on it.:)

Now a glimpse into the incredible ceremony. This sky is NOT Photoshopped.. I shot this image with a fisheye lens to give it the interesting look.

CHECK BACK LATER FOR MORE PICS!!!!!!!! If you want to leave a comment please do so. Thanks

Some New Products–For any Session :)

I wanted to show of the goodness of some of these new products that one of my awesome brides (Karen) ordered.  I love the way these turned out.

First is a awesome GUEST sign in custom album.  This little 9 x 9  book is beautiful.  The best part is that it is designed to be a sign in album with plenty of white space but the coolest part is that it is a lay flat album to enjoy the beauty of the images.  Check it out!!

Now on to something else that Karen ordered. She wanted to display some of the shots from their engagement session around the bar. So here are 7 – 8 x 12 printed on a very firm styrene backing so that the images will stand upright around the bar area.
She also ordered custom Save the Date Cards. You will also notice a 24 x 26 custom gallery art wrap that will be displayed on an easel. I cannot wait for her wedding in a couple of weeks at the awesome Montaluce Winery in Dahlonega, GA. Here are 2 pics of this goodness!

Also check out this custom CD case that The Hammers family is getting.

KarenAugust 19, 2009 - 7:15 pm

These are so awesome, Daniel! I love your work and get sooo many compliments on what you have done for us. I can’t wait to display these on our big day! =)
