Before and After

So, in the past month I have learned a LOT about digital photo editing. I wish that I had known all of this sooner!!! I thought I would show an example from my first ever engagement session with Ty and Steph.
This first image is straight out of the camera (SOTC).

This next one, add a few layers and...

You can also mix a little black and white with color...

Straight black and white...

And Sepia!...

All in all, I am excited to be able to play further with this new-found knowledge and to be able to better serve my friends and clients in the future!!!

Sepia Tone Lovin'

Friday night, my wife and I had a GREAT time hanging out with a really cool family named the Spansels. They have seven kids. That's right, seven. However, their home is probably the best decorated as I have ever seen and there is a remarkable sense of order in their home and their kids are so well-behaved but also incredibly fun!
On the front end of an INTENSE game of Soccer that my wife Cory and I played with them we had the opportunity to take some fun photos. The game was ruled a tie on a controversial call (perhaps the ref was a bit out of position...)
Something that has been really fun lately has been getting to discuss photography with fun friends. A really cool friend of mine from college named Shay has been feeding me a few photoshop tips. Before the past couple months or so, I had never worked in photoshop before and it has been SUPER helpful to just get some quick tips from him and bounce some ideas off of him.
Here are the fruits of the beginning parts of my efforts on their photos. Please leave me a comment to tell me what you think!

A few faves from the Flower Wedding

This past weekend I flew out to Dallas, TX for my good friend Tyler Flower's wedding. A lot of old friends were there and the wedding was fabulous! Ty and Steph were such fun and the whole experience was quite enjoyable!!!!! Hope you guys are enjoying your cruise. Since I was in the wedding, I didn't get a chance to do a whole lot of shooting, but I did manage to snap a few. Check them out below.
Weddings are fun, the photos should be too. If you are interested in portrait/wedding photography, e-mail Bill at
