A Quiet Kiss

October 31, 2006


Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from North Carolina photographer, Ginger Moseley of A Moment in Time Photography. In the photographer’s own words:

Most of the guests had left for the reception and the couple, Barbara and David, had just been standing in the door of this quaint mountain church posing as a friend took a picture. Once they had smiled for their friend, they exchanged a kiss. I had been quietly standing inside while my assistant was taking down our lighting equipment. I noticed the beautiful light and had taken a picture of them from the back as they posed for the “other photographer”. Those images are pretty…. but when they turned and kissed, I knew that was the shot. Such a nice couple….and I think their love shows. If you’d like to see the rest of their wedding day images, just go to



White Heron

October 25, 2006


Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Dover Delaware photographer Elizabeth Crook of Elizabeth Crook Photography. In the photographer’s own words:

While running around on a golf cart shooting for a local Golf Tournament, I stopped to look at this White Heron bathing in one of the ponds. Just as I started snapping, this beauty took flight and I think I shoot at least 20 photos as it flew off, hoping to get something decent. As I was “chimping” my way through the photos, I just knew I had caught the perfect moment and was so excited that I ran back to my car and sat there downloading it onto my laptop. This photo has recently sold in auctions for our Delaware State Ducks Unlimited chapters helping raising money for wildlife preservation and conservation.

The Kiss

October 22, 2006


Today’s awesome photograph was taken by Indiana photographer Leann Wrightsman of Lifespring Photography. In the photographer’s own words:

This photograph was taken during a break in the action at a wedding that I photographed with Adam and Lynn Squier. The hors d’oeuvres had been served and guests were milling about in the reception tent so Adam and I scooted the bride and groom out into lovely green grassy field for a few photographs. Just after this image was captured, the clouds opened up and rain poured down. If overcast skies on the wedding day mean good luck, then today’s bride and groom will have many years of happiness together!

Creative Minds At Work

October 20, 2006


This photograph is from me, Jim Cook, a Georgetown Kentucky Wedding Photographer. This photograph of Megan is from one of my Senior Pictures sessions.

I must confess I got quite lucky with this photography. While I planned the jump in front of this banner on a wall, I did not notice till I got home that the shape of her body is a lazy K and it is in front of the K in work. I think that is what makes this photograph so special for me. I think that while luck certainly plays an element in getting awesome photographs, putting myself in a position to capture the “luck” is something I strive to do every time I shoot. The more I learn and shoot — the luckier I am becoming.

Perfect Pool Of Light

October 17, 2006


Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Indiana photographer Anne Ruthmann of Anne Ruthmann Photography. In the photographer’s own words:

Even though I was right there capturing this moment, it still looks completely surreal to me. I love lighting challenges and making the most out of whatever light is available. When I saw this moment, I couldn’t imagine anything more perfect! The lights were only strung through the lowest branches of the tree, creating a perfect pool of light in the grass underneath. Had the branches been higher, this photo probably wouldn’t have been possible. The fact that this was one of the few moments that the bride & groom were able to simply enjoy each other on their wedding day just makes this image that much more amazing. *sigh* Anne Ruthmann

Keep Me Safe

October 13, 2006


Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from New York photographer, Matt Antonino of Picture Infinity Studios. In the photographer’s own words:

This photo was taken during an engagement session on the beach. We’d previously shot with Steve but this was our first shoot with Ashley and the first with them together. I wanted to capture them having fun in the water so they splashed around for awhile. Finally Steve picked Ashley up and she took the opportunity to get cozy. This shot best expressed how their mood changed from the playfulness in the water to a more romantic, loving feel as he carried her safely from the water – after splashing her!

Sisters at Sunset

October 12, 2006


Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Arkansas photographer, Matt Terry, of Terry’s Photography. In the photographer’s own words:

I took this picture at Lake Monticello in Monticello, AR. This was captured at sunset on Sunday, October 1, 2006. The sky was unbelievable and I used a Canon 20D with a 50mm lens to shoot this scene. There was an off camera Canon 580 flash mounted on a tripod and diffused with an umbrella triggered by the Canon st-e2. You can see more of my work at

Lea + Tom Embrace

October 11, 2006


Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Pasadena California based photographer Danielle Biel of Skye Blu Photography. In the photographer’s own words:

This wedding rocked, it’s hard to choose a favorite from the day, but in the end, I suppose I like the simplicity of these. They are a very intense couple, and I think it shows in his eyes, they are very much in sync… i just love the color and body language between them, these were taken one right after the other while losing sunlight, they are the last shots I took of them before we headed in to party! you can see more in my slideshow of the couple within my blog:

Peeking In

October 10, 2006


Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Stephen Troell of Stephen Troell Photography. In the photographer’s own words:

Here is a photo I shot at my most recent wedding. One of the flower girls was sneaking a look at the bride as she prepared for the day.

The Approaching Storm

October 9, 2006


Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Columbus (Dublin) Ohio photographer, Adam Squier, of Squier Photography. In the photographer’s own words:

The reception was outside in a big tent and it had been raining off and on all day. During the reception we actually had to evacuate (big metal tent poles aren’t the best thing to be under with lightning). The lightshow provided by God was great. The temperature dropped considerably and the wind picked up. Things were a bit chilly but everything turned out well.

The sky looked dark and foreboding and I just had to get a picture of it. I underexposed the sky and let the TTL flash do its thing to expose the couple. There were no post-capture effects applied.

Lost in the Moment

October 4, 2006


Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Southern California Wedding Photographer Greg Bumatay. In the photographer’s own words:

This was a gorgeous day with one hot couple that was willing to try practically anything. When asked to hop on to a piano, Missy and Steven were all for it! They came together so naturally and truly enjoyed this moment. I love it when a couple can forget about everything else and focus on having fun or enjoying their special day. They were able to get lost in the moment while looking into each other’s eyes.

The wedding took place at Santiago Canyon and the reception took place at Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen in Downtown Disney, CA
