Some people are real big fans of selective color in images. Personally I am only a fan when it brings some emotion to the image. This an image that was taken of a bride and groom after their wedding day. I took this picture showing the bride's wedding rings on her man's chest. After I got done and began to edit the pictures from the day, I decided to try out a little selective coloring on the american flag. I think that this is one of my favorite images of all time. This photograph really meant something to the couple because of what the United States of America means to them. God Bless all our soldiers on the front lines. I heard a quote from Troy King, Attorney General for the State of Alabama. "These men were not heroes because of how they died, they were heroes because of how they lived". I pray that God would walk along side our soldiers overseas and keep them safe.

The last few days have been the first glimpse into Spring that anyone has seen since a year ago. Its really hard to believe that only a week ago we were gathering our snow suits to go out into the four inches of snow that blanketed the ground. We were able to go out onto the campus of Auburn University and take some really neat images of Samford Hall in the Snow. We don't do many landscapes so it is always a nice change of pace for us. We will post some of those images once we get done editing and choosing. This image is a little bit older and the last few days reminded me of the weather when this image was taken. It is a pretty neat image that has had the colors bumped a bit to create almost a fantasy world. We are still looking for weddings for the summer and are always looking for families and children to take pictures of. Don't forget the contest that is coming up. Get with us and we will setup a time to meet with you. Thanks and enjoy the weather while its like this.

This image is an image of a baby that was actually taken last fall and is an amazing image of a beautiful baby. Some of you might have seen it before, but it is what I consider art and is exactly what this contest is looking for. Beginning March 1st our Photo lab is hosting a children and baby photography contest. Any images that are taken during that time are eligible to be sent to the lab for judging. Give us your best ideas and we will join together to make the best image possible. The first prize winner gets $2,000.00, so its well worth the $50.00 sitting fee if you ask me. We are currently charging $50.00 for the sitting fee to have your child photographed for this contest as well as images for you to keep forever. Please contact us and setup an appointment to take some pictures of your little ones.

We have an awesome wedding coming up in March. We had the privilege to get together with the Bride and Groom, who happen to be friends of ours, and take some great engagement pics to be displayed at their reception. I will obviously not post the best of all, because it will be on display at the wedding. There were quite a few more that turned out pretty good. This image was taken in downtown Opelika. We can't wait on the wedding to get here.

I hope that the cold weather has everyone dreaming of warmer days in April when Spring begins to come out in full force. Our Photo lab is currently holding a contest for children's images taken in the new year. The contest begins March 1 and the last round of the contest does not end until June 30. So there are lots of opportunities to get with us and take some pictures. We are also running a special on our sitting fee which is half price through the end of April ($50.00). This is really an opportunity to think outside the box and come up with the most original idea that pops in your brain. If anyone has any interest in teaming with us to win you some money please let us know. The Grand Prize is a whopping $2,000.00 with 2nd place getting $1,000.00, and $750 for 3rd, Honorable Mention gets $500.00. We will get together and with your help choose the image that is the best to send in for the contest. Please get with us soon about this adventure in Photography. We are also booking weddings for this summer and still have several openings in June and July, as well as a few in May and August. Thanks so much for stopping by. We are going to work hard to keep the blog going more often.
