Mark + Deb = Happily Ever After

I was honored to be chosen to photograph Mark and Deb's special day. The moment that Deb saw Mark on their wedding day, she was at ease and in perfect happiness. I believe in fairytale endings, romance and eternal love and these two displayed every ounce of this and then some. I had trouble narrowing down my favorites for this post, but tried to choose the most unique and intimate moments that truly tell a love story. Congratulations again to my friends Deb and Mark! May you remember this day always and have continued joy now and forever.

I would love your feedback on the below photos. I am especially new to wedding photography but was up for the challenge! It was extremely exhausting and hard work, but well worth it to capture these once-in-a-lifetime moments.

Restoration Challenge!

Many of you may wonder why the name of my business is "FixYourImages Photography." It all began when I started my initial website and only offered restoration photo services. As time passed, I could not deny my love for photography and knew I wanted to somehow incorporate those services into my overall business. I had already branded my website name and felt it would be counterproductive to alter it, so why not just keep my website domain and tweak my business name to suit it?

So in the spirit of remembering where I first began, here is an example of one of my most challenging restoration projects. Notice you can not even see the leopard's face or baby cub in the before version. I definitely had to work some magic in this one and my secrets can not be revealed! I am up for a new challenge though. So if you have a photo that is old, torn, discolored, chewed and spit out by the dog, run over by the car or even needs someone added or removed, please send to me! And if you recruit 10 fans to my Facebook business page, I will even offer you a 50% discount on a restoration service. Just comment on this blog or Facebook so I know you are participating!
