blast from the past

Saturday, January 31

so, what does a photographer do during the off season? well, besides making appointments to meet up with new/potential clients, i've done a lot of developing actions and photographing my own kiddos. but, i've decided to add another fun activity to the mix! i've decided to dive into my wedding vault, look through my old photos, and polish some of the dusty gems.

so....the first wedding up to bat is ryan and elizabeth's. they were married may 27, 2007 at the fabulous pazzo's cucina in chicago. ryan and elizabeth are gorgeous, classic, and sophisticated...and by far the tallest couple i've ever photographed! when i photographed their wedding, i only had my canon rebel xt, and limited lenses in my bag. but their photos turned out to be some of my favorites from that year!

for these images, i re-processed them using a combination of TRA, TRA2, and my own personal actions. if you're a photographer are you're not using TRA or TRA2...YOU SHOULD BE!! they rock my socks off!! the boutwells are quite the photoshop geniuses!

walking around downtown. i know this shot is slightly out of focus, but i loved the sunbeams!!

happy trails to them!!

putting my current creative spin on my past work sure is fun!! i definitely think i'll do it again, sometime.
