Helen & Adam Save the Date

On 07, Mar 2012 | One Comment | In photography | By Lori

My good friend Helen and I finalized the Save the Date for her upcoming wedding in October using the underwater photos we took last fall.  My first time taking underwater photos was better than I could have hoped but some of our favorite photos came out a little grainy.  Rather than dismiss the photos as unusual, I post-processed the photos to have a vintage feel, with washed out colors and light leaks.  I selected a embellished script font that exemplified the vintage romantic feeling I was going for. Here are the results:

New Skills: Underwater Photography

On 08, Aug 2011 | 3 Comments | In photography | By Lori

So my good friend Helen wanted to try some underwater engagement photos and it took little convincing for me to give it a shot.  I can say honestly it’s hard work for all parties involved but I couldn’t be happier with the way they turned out, especially for my very first shoot!  It took some time for everyone to get comfortable with what works and what doesn’t and I definitely will be trying a few things next time that might help: namely a weight belt for me and a few inexpensive underwater lights.

The night shots turned out fantastic though the cloudiness obscured photos any further than 4-5 feet away.  Perhaps next time I’ll rent a wide angle lens as well so I can be close to the action without losing the shot.

And a big thank you to Helen and Adam for being such patient models and to Kyle, Emily and my Ranger for the best support crew a girl could ask for!
