"And when we find ourselves in the place just right; it will be in the valley of love and delight."

From the first email exchange with Candace, we knew we were going to be a great wedding-photographers match. Strike that! After we cleared up the confusion of my mistaking her for someone else (whoops!), then we knew we were going to be a great match. How didst we know? Well let me count the evidences: Wedding in a historic little white chapel. Yay! We can cross that one off the photography bucket list! A blended family wedding. If you know us, you know that blended family weddings hold a special place in our hearts. There is just something about pledging your love and lives together as a family that makes us swoon!Glamorous old Hollywood style wedding gown.

Pardon my, 'nerding-out' and changing the lyrics to Tom Petty (sacrilege!), but I'm all excited to share another one of our creative photography techniques.  Participating in the Photography Awesomesauce Winter Photo Challenge has inspired me to write about some of the techniques we use to create imaginative art when we photograph with you. Some of the techniques are newer to us like prisming while others, like freelensing, we've been doing for awhile.

Freelensing is a technique where you shoot photos with your lens detached from the camera and twist and turn and bend it in different ways for creative focus and light leaks. I won't bore you with a how-to (that's what Google's for), but I will say that I think I've most enjoyed using this technique to capture creative imagery of flowers and candy buffets at weddings. For the sake of shooting something new for the challenge, here are some free-lens shots from this week. (Mood Music)

I have loved many women and men, but I love none better than you." - Walt Whitman
