Tasha & Brandon

Sunday we had an awesome photo session (at the Wethersfield Green) with a fantastic couple! Tasha & Brandon are getting married soon and we created some images that really popped. They were so easy to work with and so photogenic we had a great morning.

I have soooo many favorites (as you can tell from the length of this Blog Post) but the top two are at the top of my list. I am working on getting a brush in Photoshop that will allow us to put a "Artist's Choice" or "Artist's Favorite" in a corner of a couple of photos from every session.

This pose (below) was actually Brandon's idea and it really worked!

OK, for such a good looking couple I just had to run the "Hollywood Portrait" effect and then place a border on it.

I just love the look on Brandon's face here!!

OK, now tell me that this doesn't look like a movie ad. It's an artistically edited version of the second photo and I really cannot tell you if I like this version or the color version better.

Tom did manage to grab this one photograph of Tasha alone.

Tom wanted me to title this one "A kiss is but a Kiss" but was afraid that it would 'date him' or worse that people would not get it.

For this photograph I converted the color into Black and White and then added chocolate...

For this image I converted a B&W to a line sketch and then merged the two into each other and painted out the details. It certainly appears like a sketch and I cannot wait to print this (on matte paper perhaps...)

The uncropped version of the second photograph, converted to B&W

I had a lot of fun processing these images!

They just were so easy to photograph! We cannot wait until their wedding.

I placed this image into a Scott Kelby action frame.

Now for some composites.
This is a 16x20 -- 9-up with the kisses on the diagonal...

These last two collages are also 16x20;s with the B&W version above the color version. I just love B&W photography for people, as you can relaly see in this post, it really brings out the soul of a person.
