In Love: Mary and Enrique

June 07, 2011
On Saturday morning, we attended Mary and Enrique’s wedding at Sarah P. Duke Gardens. You may recall (if you’ve been following me for any time) that my husband proposed to me at Duke Gardens on June 5, 2008…so it was quite a special day. During wedding ceremonies, I do my best not to take over the photographer’s job…but, I was able to capture a couple of shots from my seat in the audience. This was one of my favorites – the kiss! Granted, I could have cropped in closer, but I love the natural framing created by the people in front of me. Considering the...

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

June 05, 2011
On Friday I mentioned that I’m in a creative rut. I’m still blaming the heat and humidity. However, I also think that by saying it “out loud,” (“out loud” = via my blog) I am motivated to push ahead. I really do need to be more intentional with my camera though. I recently read an article at the Digital Photography School called “3 Stupidly Simple Reasons Why Most People’s Photography Does Not Improve.” This article totally called me out…“You can carry your camera around with you 24/7 for the rest of your life but unless you learn...
