The Importance of a Great Headshot – Little Rock Photographers

Social media and how we present ourselves online are becoming increasingly important to our personal and professional lives. What people can learn about us through social networking sites has a huge impact on how we are perceived by our co-workers, potential employers, as well as friends and family. Your profile photo on LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter is often the first thing someone sees when they research you online. Appearing professional, inviting and polished is especially important for those who work in customer-service related industries, such as real estate and insurance agents, personal accountants, or  life coaches.What better way to put your best foot forward than with a modern and beautiful headshot? ...

Allison and John – Old Mill Engagement Portraits – Little Rock Wedding Photographers

We had to reschedule once due to torrential rain and their shoot was almost canceled again due to looming weather, but the skies parted long enough for us to get some sunshine at The Old Mill in North Little Rock. It was crazy hot and humid, but these two hung in there and I love what we captured! Here are a few of my favorite shots: ...

How to Take Wedding Ring Shots – Arkansas Wedding Photography

One of my favorite parts of shooting a wedding is the wedding-ring shot. It's one of my favorite images to capture because it requires a lot of creativity, patience and skill to get a visually appealing and sharp image. It's especially challenging to capture this shot because I'm not always in the most ideal of locations - such as a dark church or a plain hotel room - so there's always some extra brainstorming to come up with something great for these shots. I love it! For ring shots, you really need a macro lens. The one I use isn't super expensive, but it does the job. Shooting at a higher f-stop makes for sharp stones in the rings, so I try and shoot no lower than f/10 or f/12, but my preference if I have enough light is to shoot around f/18. When you set up this shot, look for lots of bright light. Use a backdrop that will create either a very classic set-up, or something that will help to tell the color story of the day. Here is a behind the scenes shot of one of my recent set-ups. I had already captured a dark, mirrored image of the...

Fayetteville Wedding Photographers – Chelsea and Ty – Arkansas Wedding Photography

Chelsea and Ty were married at Central United Methodist in Fayetteville. The day was full of tradition, lots of love and many happy prayers for this adorable couple. Here are a few of my favorite details, real moments and portraits: Chelsea and her Dad had a Father-Daughter first look. He wanted the first time to see her in her dress be extra special and for the two of them to have a private moment together before walking her down the aisle. There were lots of happy tears, hugs and smiles. The couple celebrated their vows with family and friends at The Chancellor on the Fayetteville square. The details were gorgeous and everything was personalized - Chelsea's dad made wine for the favors, a custom monogram was their guestbook and they used Chelsea's parent's wedding topper on their cake. Nothing makes a reception more perfect than incorporating details that are special to the couple and their families. Those keylime pies were delish! ...
