Engaged: Adrian + Kamala

I’m super excited about the 2014 wedding season.  The wedding season for me includes portrait sessions, as well as the wedding day itself.  So last month when we scheduled several engagement portrait sessions, the excitement began!  Adrian + Kamala were a joy to photograph.  Full of style (their own) and willingness to show it off in front of my camera.  I’m looking forward to their wedding day May 31st.  Here’s to a fabulous 2014!

Shooting the Details

My second shooter caught this image of me shooting the details at a recent wedding. It’s rare that I’m presented with an image of myself capturing images! Every since then, Donnell & Ricardo have been competing to capture the best image of me on the wedding day. It’s fun, and it gives you a glimpse of who we are and what we do!

In the Studio: Giavonia

I don’t discuss studio photography often on the blog, but now that I have a dedicated wedding photography website, I can share a little more of what I do outside of wedding photography here.  OK, maybe that was a poor choice of words, because although this is outside of wedding photography, the setting is indeed inside the studios of In His Image Photography.  My style of studio photography is very much depicted in the images below.  Although photography has evolved, I am still very much pure to it’s definition.  Photography simply means writing with light.  How we utilize that light, or the absence of it, is one of the methods we can express ourselves through our work.  During this session, Giavonia agreed to let me express myself artistically and together we created a great number of amazing images.  A few of my favorite images are below, and several more are shared on the In His Image Photography facebook page.  My question for you is, are you ready for your session?
