My primary focus as photographer has become weddings. I love attending and photographing weddings, but there is a lot of work that goes into a wedding. I rarely have time to shoot anything else and this causes me to get into a creative rut. It’s a great day when I can shoot in a low stress situation and have a little fun. I found Ty sometime last year on instagram and I started following her because of her amazing makeup skills. So, when I had an upcoming artist that I wanted to shoot,  I reached out to Ty and she did an amazing job on the makeup.  We hit it off and became friends after that. I recently had the pleasure of shooting her Senior Portraits and she was the model for Photography 101 class. We have worked together enough, that I don’t even have to direct her anymore. I really like the way that these photos turned out. All I used to take them was natural light, the Canon 35mm f/1.4 and my Tamron 24-78 f/2.8.

Gear Used

It seems like I’ve been waiting for this wedding for a long time! Milly and Sam finally tied the knot. Milly is like a sister to me, I met her fresh out of HS, when she contacted me out of the blue to take some photos. I was a new photographer, and she had aspirations of becoming a model. We were perfect and we’ve been close every since. I’ve watched her grow and mature. I’ve watched her become a mother and wife. I know Sam will continue to take care of her and Samantha. I really wish you two the best, and if you ever need us, don’t hesitate to reach out. Love you guys!!

Batteries!! we all need them, and we have spend more time charging them than we would like. When my previous charger started failing, I decided to get a new one that had at least 16 bays. Unfortunately, I don’t think they make 16 bay chargers, because I could not find one.  The most I could find was the Tenergy TN160 12 bay charger. This charger retails for about 34.99 and can be found here. I was a little hesitant at first, because I was scared of buying more junk, but this seems to be a fairly solid charger. It supports AAA and AA batteries only and will charge all twelve in about 6 hours or so. It flags defective batteries ( I had two)  and has an LCD which shows  the charging status of each battery. You can also have it discharge your batteries as well (not sure why I would, but it can!).  It also claims to have some fancy schmancy technology which will keep it from blowing up.  There is not much more to say about it. It charges batteries and does a good job at doing so.
