Tyler and Chelsea

So, as I said in my last post; my brother-in-law and fiancé asked if I would take pictures for them, and this past Saturday that is precisely what we did.

Let me tell you a little bit about these two.
First, they are absolutely perfect for each other! They relate to each other so well, and are constantly saying those three little words; "I love you!"
Chelsea has a contagious smile and Tyler is the comedian that keeps her laughing.
 They are constantly showing each other affection.
It was hard to get a picture of them not kissing <3 p="">
I'm so excited for them to start their new beginning.
Congratulations you two lovebirds.

Things I've learned:
-Lighting is huge! We went to the cutest yellow house, and just because it was on the wrong side of the road, I didn't get any good pictures.
-Question: How do you see your screen outside?
-Hold still! Talking about myself. I need to just breath. Rather then trying to take a billion pictures, I need to slow down, focus, then shoot. I had way to many pictures out of focus! Urg.
-I thought of about a million really good poses,...after we shot. In other words, it's a good idea to study other pictures.
-Learning your settings on your camera is a big process, and can be rather frustrating. I still need lots of help in that area! So please, if you have any advice, send me a message! :)
-Showing confidence while shooting is a big deal. You need to pretend your confident, even if you're not. Which brings me to...
-Make sure you're "client" feels comfortable. Continually tell them they are doing a good job, and that they look great!
-Take pictures that the only thing you need to change in photo shop is; maybe a little bit of lighting and contrast. I really need to work on that. I had pictures ranging from to much blue, yellow, or red, and boy does it makes for hard editing.
-Practice, practice, practice!
