I know Maryland is along way from Madison Indiana but when an old friend comes back to town for a wedding it’s only natural we get her beautiful daughters Senior pics done in one of her favorite Historic Towns !!

It is always a pleasure to shoot Senior Pics but it’s a bonus when their parents are able to attend the session and we are able to get caught up on all the things both of us has missed out on. Love working with great people, really makes a great job even better !!

For me with wedding photography the main subject I try to capture is the emotion in the moments,  when the father gives away the bride a mother and son dance or the couple’s first look at each other.  There are many moments during the wedding experience that make for great photography but you really have to be on the ball to capture those special moments !!

During a recent wedding here in Madison Indiana, it was just this emotion I was looking for in a wedding shot, I captured many wonderful images but it was one for me that really stood out.

With this image of the newlyweds first dance I tried to capture the emotion as it presented itself to me, many times it is a laugh or maybe a tear but with this couple it was certainly obvious that bliss was the emotion that I was after. With the emotion in the shot I felt that a black and white conversion was the only way to go with this image as well.

So when you are photographing a wedding definitely look for those special moments and the emotion that goes along with it, thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my photography !!

Back to Senior Photography and what I think is a especially cool image. I captured this one in the middle of the main street that runs thru Madison Indiana, the clouds were really dramatic that day and with this young mans James Dean look it all came together for a special image !!

I love being able to work with these young people  to create special moments for their  Senior session,  many photographers just shoot and don’t take the time to visualize the finished product, and I think that is a disservice  to the clients !!

I hope you enjoy my work and thanks for taking the time stop by and take a look!!

I thought I might shift away from the Senior Photography for a moment and post one of my  favorite wedding images I captured last fall.  I got this image last fall just outside of Vevay Indiana just upriver from Madison, it is a very rural and beautiful part of the state.  The newlyweds had a vintage truck they wanted to incorporate with their shoot and I was eager to comply with their wishes.

We set out just driving the back-roads that lined the area they lived and stopped wherever we felt like a good shot could be created. This image really stood out to me for emotion and originality and after viewing all the images we agreed that it stood out and needed to be printed big !!!

I hope you enjoy the shot and thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my photography !!
