playing catch up

KRA-1… and enjoying the snow day!

i love getting the chance to stay home, sit down, and start ticking things off to do lists. i’m already a few coffees and teas deep, and after having mailed the jamaica proofs yesterday (wooo! largest editing job to date for sure) i have a few family sessions left to clear up and then nothing but school to focus on.

i think february is going to fly faster than january too. we’re already about a week in, and after logging a hard week next week we have mid-term break – so, that means if i burrow my head under a blanket for a few days i might actually get to enjoy break and come back ready for march. YES.

running count until my time is my own… 71 days.

much (snowy) love,

instagram favorites!

Fragile IG-1 IG-2 IG-3 Square IG-4i’ve been on a pretty big clean-reorganize-DIY kick lately. i blame picking through anthropologie one too many times. what a dream job working for that company would be! has anyone seen their store installations? whoa. sure its retail, but its also definitely art.

i’m also confused, has anyone seen christmas vacation or new years? i seem to have lost about 3 weeks of time that i vaguely remember but there’s no way it’s already over. if you find it though, please let me know! hopeless optimism here. schoolwork has already returned full force, and between assignments and editing it’s flat out as per usual again. and not that i mind a schedule, i am just overly attached to sleep (and 8:30 classes are fairly unforgiving).

i hope everyone else’s january isn’t kicking in too bad!

much love,

jamaica, no problem

ER-1ER-1

ER-4

ER-2 ER-3you know your going to love a country when their mantra is “no problem.”

i legitimately can’t say enough good about our trip. the sun, the heat, the beach. the food, the people, the wedding, the wedding party. to say i’m lucky to do what i do is an extremely large understatement.

jamaica, it was unreal!

much love,

K&H

I’m going to go out on a limb and say photographing a wedding like Kev & Holly’s is why I enjoy what I do. Now, I’ll totally admit I’ve done a few weddings in which afterwards, I thought the only way I would feel better would be by packing up my camera (lenses and all), putting everything in a bag, and launching it onto the side of a road next a cardboard sign saying “free”  haphazardly propped up somewhere in it’s vicinity… My dues have definitely been paid on a few fronts. So when the day goes as fun as these two’s did, and you end up tearing it up (eyes wise and dance floor wise I might add) I can’t help but be genuinely jacked. There might be a bit of a negative “air” that blows around to admitting I am in fact a wedding photographer, but come on. Who else gets to hang out with people on one of the happiest days of their lives? That’s a lot of happy when the weddings start piling up!

You can’t really beat that.

Much love,

Adventures in Split Toning

After finishing up Joanne & Daniel’s wedding editing this past week I stumbled across another favorite when I found this shot! I actually split toned it, and I was really happy with the effect when I added a pink tinge to the highlights and another warm hue to the shadows.

Thoughts?

Much love,

Candace
