More Wedding Photos

In August, I got the opportunity to photograph another wedding, this time at the Oregon coast. Usually August is a good time to catch some sun instead of fog along the scenic coastline. The bride is Nickelle and the groom is William. It was such a pleasure to be part of their beautiful day!

Some Wedding Pictures

I was asked by a friend to shoot her wedding in July. I have finally sifted through all the photos that I took that day. With editing being my least favorite part of photography, but a necessary evil, I tried to get through it as fast as I could. I did have a few really nice artistic shots come out of it.

Some Beauty

I love it when the thistles are in bloom. There is something about the purple that they bloom in that really catches my eye. The best is when you are able to catch a bee climbing around on them, but a really great stroke of luck is when you can catch a bee in flight, on its way to get some nectar.

A Bad Place Alone

As I was out taking photos on Saturday, I found this place near my house. There was something about it that reminded me of the movie "It." Maybe it was the creek or maybe it was the large drain pipe with the grate over it. The best part though, was looking through the large culvert at the dark trees beyond. I am thinking that a photo shoot is in order at this location!

Fun With Trains

The lovely and perky Nickelle Hubley was just having some fun out on the train cars. Miss Nickelle was nice enough to pose for me, and she did a great job. We both had a lot of fun, and I thank her whole heartedly for her patience with me as I tried to get the focus just right...

Girls on Bikes

Well, actually it is just one girl on one bike, but making that title singular wouldn't have sounded as good. This is Alx, posing on my 1982 Yamaha 650 Seca Turbo. We had the bike in the middle of a field, in a patch of daisy's. Thank you to Shaun Stickle for helping push my bike out there.

I prefer to do outside portraits on over cast days, which this was, as it helps to defuse the sunlight and softens the image. Because of Alx's eyes, even though you can only see one, and the "not quite a smile" on her lips, this photo just begged for the dramatic effect of black and white.

Thank you to Alx for being my model, and thanks again to Shaun for the help pushing the bike into the field.
