Today Hope should be arriving in WDW! I decided that since we were supposed to go as well and I would have taken a vacation from the blog, that I would post a shot from our trip last year that coincides with Hope's trip. So...
Right about now, I'm thinking that Hope is seeing THIS!!!!!!

It's FALL!

Better late than never, right? Here's my shot for yesterday at our annual homeschool Fall Equinox party. We went to a new park and the kids loved it (from what I was told!) ;)

M-I-C... See ya' real soon!

K-E-Y... Why? Because I'm going to Disney World!!

I won't have internet access while I'm gone but when I get back I'll have some fabulous pictures to share. See ya next week! :-)

One more before I go...

I am so busy editing pics and getting ready for my vacation that I forgot to post yesterday. I've given up on editing until I get back but will still offer two wedding pics for today that were taken during the ceremony.

I MUST walk away from my computer now and watch Survivor. I've been editing all day long and I have learned a TON about my editing software, but not gotten as much done as I thought. Here are a couple of my favorite shots from today. I wasn't just doing selective coloring, I knew how to do that, but it's the easiest "editing" to show you.

A few shots during the ceremony- I love these candid shots that show the pure emotion on their faces. They alternate between joyful and pure love which is exactly the feeling that surrounded the entire day. <3
I'm not sure I can post just ONE of my favorites that I edited today! I'm having a good time doing it, I feel like there's a learning curve I think I'm getting a better eye. I will admit I'm a sucker for this filter called "duplex". I love the way it looks, I think I could do every single picture I take from now on in it. LOL

Posting a wedding pic that looks fine on my computer but noisy (grainy) on Facebook. I wanted to see how it looked here on the blog for comparison.

Since I have spent most of the day editing, I figured posting my edited pics was just as good as having actually taken any pics today! I've spent more time editing than shooting at this point! LOL. I'm enjoying it for the most part, I wish I wasn't such a perfectionist b/c I just can't get all the shots perfect like I would want to. Here are a couple that I played around with for a different look. The Bride & Groom will get them in traditional colors as well, but I wanted to give them a little bit of variety, and in some cases it actually looked better.

I had NO idea wedding photography would be so physically demanding! I am EXHAUSTED but I also had LOTS of fun. This wedding was so much fun to shoot because a)the bride was beautiful and b) these two just have so much fun together that it's contagious. I am so happy to have been a part of their day and I hope they are as happy with the pictures as I am.

Like Karen, I took over 2000 shots and will be busy all week editing so I don't know how much time I'll have to shoot daily... but wouldn't you rather see wedding pics anyway. ;-)

Wedding photography is a lot of work!

WOW. Challenging would be the word of the weekend for me, but it is paying off! I got some beautiful shots at the wedding, now I just have to edit and process them. You may be getting wedding shots for the rest of the week, I think I took at least that many pics in just one day! Here are two shots to cover the shots I didn't post this weekend:
