11 must-have candid wedding photos

One of my 2011 brides asked me if I could write a blog listing must have photos. Not an easy task, as there are many must have photos at a wedding. Some are posed, some are candid.

Lacing up the back of the brides gown is always a great photo. 2-Bride and her father just before she...

8 photo tips for better people photos

1-Use your flash outdoors. This helps fill in dark shaded areas that often happen from harsh sunlight. This especially works well when doing people photos at twilight or in front of a sunset. If your flash is too weak, then consider over exposing a bit or moving closer to subjects. Most cameras have a twilight setting, or you can activate the flash so that it always fires. 2-When photographing people outdoors it is best to place them in even shade. Not only will it be cooler on hot summer...
