Christy & Humberto {Destination Wedding / Family Vacation}

If you follow me at all you’ll know that in July my daughter and I went along with my sister, our parents and her fiance to Tennessee so that they could get married out of the city. It was a small intimate wedding with the most perfect of details and it took place right in front of the fire place in our cabin in the mountains. After the ceremony the three of us went down to explore and and soak in as much of gorgeous Tennessee as we could. Since they got married on our first day up there we enjoyed the last bit of the trip site-seeing and doing what tourists do – cave exploring, gem mining, trout fishing, deer feeding – you know, the usual! Here are a few (ha ha – in comparison to the whole album) pictures from our trip. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!

Fireworks – 4th of July 2013

This year I  read a lot on different ways to photograph fireworks. I was really excited to see if I had soaked any of it up. I’m pretty happy with the results, I hope you enjoy them!

To get this effect you turn the focus ring while the shutter is open. Most of these were taken with ISO 100, 1 second shutter speed at F16.
