Location Lighting Using One TTL Off Camera Flash

Location Lighting Using One TTL Off Camera Flash

In this video we show you a very simple setup of one flash and a softbox. This is the easiest setup to start with and we have been using this setup for our portraits for many years. When I first started wedding photography I just used one flash on the top of my camera with a diffuser and had it angled at 45 degrees. The photos came out okay because  the photos captured the emotion of the people and made my brides happy but I wanted it to be better. Slowly but surely I build up my equipment and learned from other photographers and the internet how to use off camera flash. When I got really good at it I noticed what a difference it made in my photos. With the off camera flash they are more dramatic and dynamic and they have better color. It just made such a difference! I hear lots of people are natural light photographers (I love shooting in natural light too!) and that works great but I feel that photographers need to know how to photograph in all lighting situations. “Better safe than sorry” is one of the mottos that I live by.) We know off camera lighting can be intimidating but it does not have to be. Joel and I are going to start an online off camera lighting series and we are going to take you through it step by step and make it easy to understand and remember. We have several video ideas if you have any suggestions we would love to hear them! Make sure to SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube Channel so you don’t miss future videos!! We really appreciate all of your support!! 🙂 To get the videos first Subscribe to our mailing list First Name Email Address Here are the photos we got:   To get the videos first Subscribe to our mailing list First Name Email Address

Prism Photography - How to do Photography Using a Prism

Prism Photography – How to do Photography Using a Prism

I personally like taking dramatic photos. When I saw another photographers work using a glass prism to add more emphasis and drama to their photos I just loved it and knew I had to try it. We have taken photos with the prism at weddings and our brides just love the way they come out. In our video we show you which prism to get, which lenses to use and we show you how to use it. We have a part 2 coming up next week so stay tuned for that. Leave us a comment below or on Youtube and we would love to hear your suggestions for future videos.

Jeanie's Bridal Session - Rice University Houston, TX

Jeanie’s Bridal Session – Rice University Houston, TX

One of my favorite things about weddings in seeing all the different dresses and how beautiful each bride is. When I saw Jeanie in her dress it put a huge smile on my face. She was GORGEOUS!! I really believe Jeanie brings good luck because the weather was absolutely PERFECT. During our consultation we showed a gallery wrap of one of my favorite bridal portraits at Rice University and that is why she decide to go ahead and have her bridal session at Rice University also.  I hope you enjoy the photos from her bridal session.

Our trip to Virginia and to the Shenandoah Mountains

Our trip to Virginia and to the Shenandoah Mountains

The trip from Atlanta, GA to Richmond, VA was shorter then Houston, to Atlanta. I have been to the Shenandoah mountains back in 2006 but have always wanted to go back and Joel had never been before so we thought this was the perfect time to go. We both have seen mountains before but we never get tired of seeing the beautiful views. Here are some of our favorite photos and make sure you check out the vlog to see more of these beautiful mountains. Enjoy! 🙂

Our Trip to the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, Georgia

Our Trip to the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, Georgia

We recently took a trip to visit some of Joel’s family in Virginia. We decided to make a road trip out of it and rented a car so we wouldn’t have to put the miles on mine. We requested a compact car so it would get good gas mileage and the only one they had available was this cute little Fiat. The first day we drove from Houston, TX to Atlanta, GA. It is about 12 hours of driving plus getting gas and food and loosing an hour when you cross over from Central to Eastern time. We didn’t take many pictures on the drive over there, but had a fair amount of video for the vlog. We arrived in Atlanta late in the evening and got a hotel by the airport because it got better reviews then other places we looked up. This allowed us to get some cool pictures of landing airplanes but did not allow us to get much sleep.   The next day we went to the Georgia Aquarium. It is the largest aquarium in the world and was built in 2005,They have a show called “Dolphin Tales” which they added only a few months ago. My favorite exhibit by far was the Ocean Voyager. It is the largest single fish tank in the world. They have Whale Sharks and Giant Manta Rays with many other beautiful fish. When I walked into that room I was blown away at the size of the tank. The photos and video don’t do it justice. You have to go see it in person. It is so beautiful and relaxing you could sit there all day and not get tired off looking at it. Here are some of our favorite pictures from the other exhibits. The Aquarium was amazing and we are going to go visit there again! For dinner we went to The Vortex Bar and Grill. I found out about this place from Man vs Food from the Travel Channel. I love that show and that channel! I’m not alone in this right? Anyway, they have crazy burgers and I got The Blue ‘Shroom and it was delicious!! If you are ever in Atlanta you should definitely stop by and grab a burger. Have you ever been to The Georgia Aquarium or to The Vortex? Leave us a comment and let us know!

Sara and Ashkan's Wedding at The Heights Villa in Houston, TX

Sara and Ashkan’s Wedding at The Heights Villa in Houston, TX

Sara and Ashkan are both half Persian and we thought it was wonderful that they included some traditional Persian ceremonies in their wedding. The “Sugar Ceremony” during the wedding and “Knife Dance” before the cake cutting were both fun and beautiful. Sara and Ashkan prove that there is someone perfect for everyone in this world. They are such a great example because She is a nurse and he is in his last year of medical school. So as Ashkan’s brother put it “The doctor and nurse found each other.” 🙂 Joel and I had a wonderful time getting to know each of you and documenting this journey. Here is to many happy years of marriage! Cheers! 🙂 The beautiful venue was The Heights Villa. Amazing floral arrangements by Mahala Floral Designs. Professional wedding videography by Cimo Productions.

Anna & James' Wedding - Conroe, TX

Anna & James’ Wedding – Conroe, TX

Anna and James love to blend modern and traditional. They met online, fell in love and got married wearing their cowboy boots! Living in Florida they are used to sunny summer days and decided to have the wedding in Texas to be with family. Their intimate Conroe wedding was shared with close friends and family and Heather’s Glen’s romantic gardens made a wonderful setting  for the day. I especially liked the “Time Warp” dance Anna and her friends danced! Joel and I are so grateful that you wanted us to part of your wedding day. Ya’ll are perfect for each other! We wish you many many years of happiness!! You guys are just SO cute together! I can’t get over it! 🙂 Time Warp!!

Lauren and John's Wedding - Houston, TX

Lauren and John’s Wedding – Houston, TX

Joel and I had a wonderful time photographing Lauren and John’s wedding. My favorite thing abut both Lauren and john is both of them have great a great sense of humor. They love to joke around with each other and they kept Joel and I laughing most of the time. 🙂 They had their ceremony at St John Vianney Catholic Church which was grand and beautiful. When I first walked in all I could think was Wow! Their reception was held at River Oaks Garden Club which was the perfect backdrop for beautiful portraits. Lauren and John; Joel and I are so glad that we were able to capture you wedding day. You two are just made for each other!  Here is to many many years of happiness!! 🙂

Sara and Ashkan Engagement Session - Herman Park and Downtown Houston Wedding Photography

Sara and Ashkan Engagement Session – Herman Park and Downtown Houston Wedding Photography

Sara and Ashkan are such a great couple and were great sports about being photographed in the rain. We had a wonderful time and got some awesome Engagement Portraits at Hermann Park and near Downtown Houston! Be sure to read the Q&A below to learn more about them! It rained just long enough to get these shots! I love the hearts!

Lilia and Justin Engagement Guestbook

Lilia and Justin Engagement Guestbook

I’ve recently added Engagement Guestbooks to my product list. I love them because 1. It’s a great conversation starter for your guests at your wedding, 2. it’s a wonderful way to showcase your engagement session and your guests signatures and 3. you have the album as a keepsake for years to come and you can display it alongside your wedding album. Here is one engagement album I printed. I use Lilia and Justin’s engagement session. Here is one cover option and a few of the pages to showcase the different page designs I used. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think! 🙂 A few pages are covered completely with an image. I wouldn’t sign on these pages. Other pages have white space for guests to sign on. Some pages have a sheer background for guests to sign on.

Lilia and Justin Engagement Session

Lilia and Justin Engagement Session

When Lilia and Justin had the idea to go to Minute Maid Park and get some portraits in front of the Houston skyline we were super excited. I have to say I am not much of a baseball fan but I got a HUGE kick out of walking around Minute Maid Park with no one else there. My favorite places to shoot at the park  the dug outs and home plate. Be sure to checkout what they put up on the scoreboard, it’s so cute! Lilia and Justin loved it because they love baseball and the Astros. Being able to walk where they play was awesome. The second part of the shoot was downtown on a rooftop. I have been living here in Houston all of my life and I have NEVER seen a better view of the Houston skyline. This was an amazing experience and we got some amazing portraits. Which ones are your favorite? Leave a comment and let me know!! 🙂

Many Faces of Max and Gabe

Many Faces of Max and Gabe

This last week Joel and I visited my sister, brother in law and two nephews in Dallas to celebrate Max’s 2nd and Gabe’s 1st birthdays. They are growing up SO fast! They in the “babbling” phase and will repeat a little of what you say. Max can sometimes put a few words together and Gabe mostly makes funny baby noises. We could only stay one day but they are so cute that I had to take some pictures before we left. It was really great seeing everyone and I can’t wait to see them again soon! 🙂 Here’s Max! And Gabe! Bed head. Sitting in the toy box like he owns the place. They are TOO cute! I just can’t get enough! “Scrunchy face!” Lady killer face! I couldn’t resist the eyelashes shot. GOOOOOOOAAALLLLL!!!! Take one bite, put it on the table, take one bite, put it on the table… Joel’s brother Ira was in town for Guard drill and dropped by to say “Hi”. Piano lessons. Bed time, good night.

Behind the Photo - Kimberly in the Sculpture Garden

Behind the Photo – Kimberly in the Sculpture Garden

Cullen Sculpture Garden at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston is another place I love to shoot bridal portraits. I really like the simple and modern look of the art in the sculpture garden. This portrait includes part of the sculpture “Houston Triptych” by Ellsworth Kelly. There is a beautiful simplicity to this photo which makes it one of my favorites. There are several elements of design that I really like about this photo including shape, pattern, and texture. To have a central subject composition that is visually interesting requires good use of symmetry and balance. In this case everything in the frame is vertically symmetrical except the sculpture piece and the placement of Kimberly’s arms and head. The sculpture lends a lot of weight to the left side of the frame but is not distracting because it is featureless. Her bent arm mimics the triangular shape of the sculpture and helps to visually connect her to the artwork. The rounded part of the sculpture and the round train of the dress similarly help connect her to the sculpture. There is a lot of different textures in the portrait and I love how the hard and angular metal and stone of the sculpture garden contrasts with the soft gentle quality of Kimberly’s back and dress. I also love the tonal contrast in this photo. It reminds me of when I shot with  Ilford HP5 plus 400 high contrast black and white film in my college darkroom class. The strong contrasts of both shades and textures creates some tension in the piece but I think the mood is really nicely controlled by Kimberly’s confident and elegant stance. We have so much fun shooting bridal portraits! When else do you get to walk around the city in a bridal gown looking like a princess? Tell me what you think in the comments below.

Camping at Huntsville State Park

Camping at Huntsville State Park

Joel and I took a trip with Heather and EJ to Huntsville State Park a few weeks ago. We wanted to go camping with them since we photographed their engagement session and wedding. I love going to Huntsville because one of my favorite things to do is canoe and they rent them there during the summer months. Heather and EJ rented a canoe for the day and Joel and I rented one over night. Canoeing is always so peaceful and my favorite part about it at this park is being able to canoe through the Lilly Pads. They were huge, some being the size of car tires. I really want to take a photo of a frog sitting on a Lilly pad, like in a cartoon. That would be so cute! While making our way through the Lilly pads there were these tiny bugs that would glide along the surface of the water like they were on glass. Also, plenty of colorful butterflies and lots of bright iridescent blue and green dragonflies which were so magical. The dragonflies would land right next to you and just look at you before darting away. The weather was nice but after canoeing for a few hours we were pretty hot and to cool off we took a dip in the lake. They have a designated area you can swim in and there are to many people there to get eaten by alligators (hopefully). While swimming we saw rain clouds in the distance so we left the swimming area and we got back to camp just in time to cover our tents and fire wood before the rain. I didn’t mind the rain for 2 reasons: it didn’t last long and it kept us nice and cool. Since Joel and I got our canoe over night we just had to take it out on the water after dark. The moon was out so we could see just enough to get around. It was such a beautiful cool night (because of the rain earlier that day) with the moon and all the stars out on the peaceful lake. Until… we noticed the pair of bright orange eyes protruding just above the water in the path to get back to our campsite! As we got closer the orange eyes quietly swam away. We got out of the canoe as fast as possible and got a safe […]

11 Random Things About Me

11 Random Things About Me

1. I’m a little afraid of the dark, especially when I’m alone. 2. I get cold easily. 68°F is sweater weather. 3. I love to listen to loud music and sing in my car. 4. I drive fast. Especially when listening to loud music. 5. I like maraschino cherries WAY more than I should. Way, way more than I should. 6. I like to go camping but I don’t like bugs. That is when Off is my best friend. 7. I have a strange fascination with twins. I don’t know if I would want to have twins though. My sister has two (non twin) boys and that is hard enough. 8. I think it would be awesome to meet conjoined twins someday. 9. I talk to the TV sometimes and yell at the TV sometimes. “NO DON’T GO DOWN THAT HALLWAY, THE ZOMBIES ARE THERE!” 10. I eat weird gluten free snacks with Joel, like toasted corn tortillas and peanut butter. It might not sound good but it is. 11. I didn’t get a Pinterest account until a few weeks ago and now I’m addicted. It’s the best site EVER! 🙂

Behind the Photo - Cassandra at Rice University

Behind the Photo – Cassandra at Rice University

Rice University is a great place to take Bridal Portraits because the architecture on the campus is very classical and elegant which makes me think of grand European castles. That makes it one of my favorite places to shoot. The columns in this hall at Rice University create great leading lines. The right side columns here lead your eye right to Cassandra’s face. The texture and repeating pattern of the brickwork and columns lend a lot of interest to the background. I also love the contrast of textures between the hard angled bricks and Cassandra’s soft flowing dress. The long receding hallway gives depth and perspective to the otherwise two dimensional medium. I placed Cassandra in front of the dark section of the closest pillar because I knew the light would softly illuminate her dress and face making her stand out from the background. Look at the light on Cassandra’s face. The far side of her face is illuminated and the close side is in shadow. In photography this is called “short lighting” it is very flattering and slimming which makes it one of my favorite lighting techniques to use on women. I loved the light in this hallway on the day of he session because it was overcast making everything evenly lit. The recessed hallway with one side open created the perfect conditions for the kind of soft directional light that is so flattering for bridal portraits. The overall light is a nice balance between the lit sides of the hall and the darker ceiling and floor. I try to be very deliberate with my bridal portraits, so I placed the dress very perfectly for that polished look. The white bouquet serves two purposes. One, to compliment her dress where a dark bouquet would have been to distracting from her face. Two, to have something for Cassandra to do with her hands. This is one of my favorite portraits and I can’t wait to create more beautiful art for you. What do you like about this bridal portrait?

Our Travels to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Our Travels to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The jet engines were roaring and the body scanners were humming at Houston’s busy Bush Intercontinental airport as we embarked on our trip to Philadelphia, PA. This was the first time Joel and I had flown together (only road trips before) and we could hardly wait to see what the city of brotherly love had in store for us. As for why we were going to Philly, see the post about my brother Chris and Michelle’s engagement session. (Congratulations again Chris and Michelle!) The flight up there was smooth and uneventful, unlike the ride back but I will get to that later. When we arrived it was warm and sunny which over the next few days turned to rainy and gloomy and then finally cool and refreshing. June in Houston is often the first two but never the last one, so it was a nice change of pace. We arrived a day before the rest of my family so that first day there we got to go exploring! It was my first time on a train and a subway. Suburban Station under downtown Philly was huge, it was four or five stories of underground train platforms, gift shops and restaurants. We got the chance to take a tour of Independence Hall and when we walked in I felt like I was taking a trip back in time. It was really cool to be in the room that the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence were signed. We were there with a bunch of 4th graders but they seemed to enjoy it and we all learned a lot. They were pretty smart kids. We wanted to see the Liberty Bell until we saw the long line of people. We didn’t feel like standing in line for an hour so we just looked at the bell through the window. Next time we go we will get there nice and early so we can see it and skip the lines. This is one of the first Supreme Court buildings that is located next to Independence Hall. While in Philly I HAD to have a authentic Philly cheese steak sandwich. Michelle was nice enough to drive through downtown Philadelphia on the way to the airport. She showed us around a bit more and we stopped at a street cart to get a Cheese Steak. The best ones come from the street carts because they […]

Angela and Lubin's Wedding - The Tremont House Galveston, TX

Angela and Lubin’s Wedding – The Tremont House Galveston, TX

Angela and Lubin are such a sweet, loving and fun couple and I was very grateful to be part of their wedding day. They put a lot of thought into their wedding jewelry. Their wedding rings were three intertwined bands that rolled around each other, the three bands representing the holy trinity. Lubin’s cufflinks were Angela’s grandfather’s and I thought that was an awesome personal touch. They had their wedding at The Tremont House in Galveston, TX. They had the ceremony on the roof. Angela said that her grandmother was the first one to get married on the Tremont rooftop and that because the Tremont house was changing their policy that her and Lubin would probably be the last couple to get married up there. I love how their ceremony was small and intimate with just their close family and friends. Enjoy the photos!

Chris and Michelle Engagement Session Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Chris and Michelle Engagement Session Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

My older brother Chris recently got engaged to his girlfriend  Michelle. Her family threw an engagement party so Joel and I flew up to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to celebrate with them. We had never been there before and we were excited to see the historical part of the city, go on trains/subways and eat authentic Philly Cheese Steaks (Joel can’t eat wheat, so he wasn’t able to have one.) When we arrived in Philadelphia Michelle drove by the Ben Franklin Bridge and I knew I wanted to shoot portraits there at night because I loved how the bridge was lit up. While in town Michelle gave us a tour and we took a few portraits of her and Chris. I love the skylines of different cities and I had to get a portrait of them in front of the Philadelphia skyline. That night we got together and went to the Ben Franklin Bridge to do an engagement session.The night air was much chiller then in Houston. The low for the night was 58 degrees which was a very nice change from sweltering Houston. After going to the Ben Franklin Bridge we stopped by Penn Treaty Park to shoot more portraits. I was really happy to be able to capture these memories for my brother and Michelle. I hope you enjoy their engagement portraits.

Welcome to my YouTube Channel

I’m really excited to announce that I made a YouTube channel! Here are my 3 reasons why… 1. I’m a very visual learner and sometimes find it easier to learn by watching then to learn by reading. 2. I feel that education is very important and I want to educate as many people as I can. 3. Photographers I learn from give back to the industry and I would not be where I am today without them. I want to give you solid information and would love to answer any questions that you have.

Some Fun on Friday – That’s how to take a photo!

I saw this on Youtube and it’s awesome and thought I would share. 🙂

Let’s Go!

I saw this video because one of my friends shared it on Facebook. It reminded me to live my life to the fullest, to take risks and to enjoy every day I have. When I’m at the end of my life I want to know I did everything I could to make it count. What are you going to do to make it count? I LOVE the video even though it doesn’t have a very good preview photo.
