Life is too short for bad coffee

30-Day Photo Challenge

Back in April I decided I wanted to do a photo challenge.  I’d seen several online (Facebook, Pinterest… you get the idea), but none of them really resonated fully with me.  So I decided to take a few of the best ideas from several of them I’d found, and mush them together into my own challenge.

Shannon & Trevor’s Blue & White Mukilteo Wedding…with PIZZA!

Shannon and Trevor got married at the Mukiltieo Rosehill Community Center this last friday, and they couldn’t have asked for a nicer day.  The rain that was forecasted stayed up in the clouds, which speckled the sky and kept things cool.  The breeze kept blowing Shannon’s dress in ways that a photographer usually only can dream of, and their small crowd of friends and family were all smiles, wishing the couple their very best.

Lights… Camera… Action!

Light.

It’s every photographer’s strongest asset.  Natural light is beautiful, especially on warm sunny evenings or in the open shade.  But sometimes, natural light just does funny things.  Blue skies blow out white in order to properly expose your subject, harsh shadows create weird lines on faces, the list goes on.  And sometimes, natural light just isn’t available.  Dark reception halls and churches, or your front room on an evening, can be too dark for exceptional photography.
