You’ve probably noticed, but I really like this bridge for pictures. Yesterday was the perfect weather, and I just love what the afternoon sun does for this shot.

I always tell my clients to feel free to ask if there are any touch ups they would like in their photographs. I can’t fix everything, but I am willing to give it a try. The picture below was one I thought about touching up before giving it to the bride and groom, but it looked like a big enough job that I wanted to know if they would even use it before putting in the time. I never mind doing the editing, but if I touched up every picture I took, I would never leave the computer! Well, the bride did ask me to remove the extra woman, and it turned out to be a quicker fix than I expected (since she’s right behind the bride, I was nervous about keeping a sharp profile).
Here’s the original:
And here it is 10 minutes later.
I cropped it to remove the DJ, and I used a fabulous Photoshop tool called the clone stamp to erase the guest in the background. What do you think?

I met Cindy almost two years ago, and one of our early conversations somehow turned to marriage. I don’t know if she remembers, but she said, “Jen, you’ll understand this when you’re older, but my life is full and I’m happy, and I don’t need a man or marriage to fill that need for me. There’s nothing missing in my life.”
So it must be a pretty special man to make her look like this:
Isn’t it fun when your life takes an unexpected turn for the better?
And of course, weddings aren’t only for the bride. Look at the size of John’s grin when he saw Cindy for the first time in her wedding dress:
Allow me to introduce you to Mr. and Mrs. Sitton. Their story is wonderful, so if you ever meet them be sure to ask about it.
The wedding was a beautiful backyard affair.
With lots of family
simply amazing flowers,
and of course, dancing.
The weather forecast predicted rain for 7 pm, and a few scattered showers during set up made everyone nervous, but it stayed beautiful and the reception went into the evening as planned.

If you follow me on Facebook, you know that I’m editing a wedding from a few weeks ago. I’m almost done , so I plan to post my favorites here soon. But I wanted to share just this one tonight of their first dance as husband and wife—I think it’s my overall favorite from the afternoon and evening. There’s nothing special about it as far as photography goes, but I love how he’s holding her so close and she looks like there’s nowhere in the world she’d rather be.
Thanks to Cindy and John for sharing your special day with me. I wish you all the happiness in the world.
