I played around with actions in photoshop for the first time today. I love the way this one turned out.

Triple Crowned

I just arrived home from New Jersey, and thought I’d post a few of the photos I took there. My cousin Katie had triplets four months ago — a girl and identical twin boys. Here they are:

I haven’t had a chance to go through my entire take from Christina’s wedding, but I did find this shot and thought I’d put it up. So… more to follow.

A Cincy Wedding

The light in the hotel was fantastic for a few portraits.

The view from the bride’s bedroom was stunning. I took two versions of this photo, one with the background in focus and one with her silhouette in focus. I like this one better.

This photo is an almost, I think. It’s too dark. I wanted to capture the hands and the feet in the black, but I think it needs a touch more light. Perhaps toning could help.

This was my first attempt to use flash. It took a bit to get used to.

This was a fun idea. We took the bride to a bar, and yelled for everyone to toast to her. I’m disappointed that this came out so dark, but I think toning might help.

These shots were my idea. When we came out after the wedding, I saw a firetruck and an ambulance right across the street, lights flashing. I grabbed Christina and we threw Nick and Casey between them.

And then, of course, there is the cake.
