Vanderbilt Children's Hospital - Friends and Fashion Patron's Party

The VCH Friends and Fashion Party took place at the Brentwood Country Club last night and I volunteered to set up a Photobooth to go along with the fashion theme.   I raided my 3 year old daughter's dress-up bin for props and they were a hit!  There were a lot of good sports at this event.

Slow Flash Shots from Fuse at Opryland

The look of the images in this post are from the shutter-drag or slow-flash technique.  This is accomplished by using a slow shutterspeed (up to 1 or 2 seconds) in a dark place with lots of lights.  You use a flash to freeze your subject but the shutter stays open to absorb more of the ambient lighting and I like to swing the camera down while the shutter is open to create streaks.

Cory & Addy - Opryland Wedding

Cory is one of my oldest friends and I was so happy to be a part of their wedding last weekend.  They were married at Opryland Hotel and his bride looked stunning.  The ceremony was a real challenge to photograph b/c it was extremely dark by the time the guests began to be seated.  I was able to set up a single light and hide it by one of the lamp posts.  I was very pleased with the results!

Golden Light at Magic Hour

Regina is an old friend and it was great catching up for a few hours this Saturday while getting some portraits. Regina looked beautiful in the magic hour light and in addition to these soft portrait photos, we also went to the junk-yard and got some gritty ones as well!
