Bellissima in Pregasina, Lake Garda, Italy

I take a lot of quick portraits of my wife while we travel, but this time I did a mini-portrait session with her. We were staying at the loveliest B&B in an incredibly picturesque mountainside town in Lake Garda, Italy named Pregasina. They had a little property a short hike further up from the B&B where we had watched the sunset the night before, so we had to return for session on our 2nd night there.

Beauty on beauty. 

If anyone wanted to have me shoot their wedding or elopement in Italy, that would be swell. Grazie mille.

Noelle & Markus - Anniversary - University of Chicago

Noelle & Markus are celebrating 10 years of marriage on the date of this post.  They wanted to commemorate that milestone with a portrait session, and I had a great time working with them.  These two & the University of Chicago were a perfect combination.  Happy Anniversary, Noelle & Markus!!

decisions, decisions...

Sometimes I can make relatively quick editing/processing decisions on photos, other times it's very difficult to decide what looks best.  Such was the case with a couple of frames I snapped of one of the wedding dress models at Indie Wed (shot with a TS-E 45mm).  I've also been enjoying experimenting with in camera double exposures with the 5D Mark III, so I did that with one of the shots, as well.  So, instead of deciding, I'm posting multiple versions.
