Wedding Story: Well, Kinda (part2)

I don't know how many ways and how any times I am going to say it, but David and I LOVE fall and everything about it (ok so I don't like warm colors... except on leaves).  So with this breath of fall that has floated in this week, we thought we would kick it off by tricking you a little bit...

...that post earlier today?  David did it.  He even tricked me!  It even sounded like I had posted it.  Gut alas, it was my hubs.  His shots looked great!  Since we have not been able to blog a lot of pictures this month, I thought I would give you a taste of what I did at David Calvert's Shoot.

BTW...David Calvert and I have figured out that we are distantly related cousins, so as to not confuse you with all the Davids we have around here, I will call the subject of our shoot "CousinDave."

CousinDave took us to a fabulous first location down in Fuquay Varina.  I can't wait to go back-there is just so much there to work with!!

Reader Poll: Which one do we like better?

Luckily we did not run into any dangerous creatures while climbing around inside this abandoned barn.

Right at the intersection of CousinDave's mind...

i like the one with color. i think the b&w has too much texture on the face, and isn't really contrasty enough for me--but that's my b&w preference--everyone is different. but my vote is for color.

i like the intersection one. a lot. and HusbandDave did a great job too.

husbanddave and cousinash certainly did a wonderful job. i think that ultimately the CD art and any web design stuff i do will be inspired by the tone they set with this shoot!

thanks for your comments and votes my friends.

amanda, i too used to only love a highly contrasted b&w but lately i have found some b&w actions that have changed the way i edit in b&w, depending on what the image might call for. since you cant see the eyes i like the texture over the face- i think there is some symbolism in that. thanks for the insightful comments!
