carolyn scott photography has been crazy busy. we’ve reached the second round of advertising changes here at CSP. this week we’re starting a google campaign that we’re pretty excited about. we also have to calibrate our wide angle lens and connect the blog to our new twitter page. we’re also, of course, always editing. next up: con-way freight’s award banquet at the angus barn.

and ta da! the light at the end of the wedding editing tunnel has been reached! came away with about 400 photographs for kevin and nichole of their lovely wedding reception last weekend at st. michael’s in cary, north carolina.

tada! cheers to you, nichole and kevin! may you have a wonderful life together. :)

continuing to hash out the edits from nichole and kevin’s wedding. love these pictures! they had their reception at st. michael the archangel’s gallery – it’s basically a reception hall that is next door to the church. it was a beautiful green room that looked great in the daylight. their wedding and ceremony was in the morning and early afternoon, so the light coming in the windows made the green a very nice backdrop color. the reception may take a few days to edit – there are lots! – but they’re adorable photographs of an adorable couple. here are some more of my recent favorites:

nichole totally had the right idea and switched into these fuzzy slippers before entering the reception!

one of the benefits of being a wedding photographer is that you get to take home centerpieces that the bride no longer wants. this wedding? a beta fish in a vase. it became quickly apparent that dolfy was quite determined to get inside the vase to eat “moosey,” so we gave him to our 9 year old neighbor who is very happy. moosey now resides in a tank instead of a vase, but he’s happy nonetheless.

my favorite thing to do at weddings is take ring shots! nichole and kevin gave me their rings during dinner so i ran around with them for a good while. this has to be one of my favorites, but a super sweet second will come tomorrow – rings in a stack of gummy bears. :)

i love editing wedding photos. i love editing all photos… seeing them on an LCD screen while you’re shooting¬† is not the same as seeing them on your wide angle beast of a computer screen in proper color. once you bring your camera home it is so exciting to look at the photographs and see what you’ve got. the day goes by in a blur and you often forget ones you took just an hour or two ago. also, as a photographer you should grow with each new wedding as each event poses a new and different challenge. so as i go through the photographs i try to critique things and think of how to improve for next time. or, if i really love the shot, i think about how i achieved it and what to continue to do for the next wedding.

here are some more of nichole and kevin, the lovely couple from this past weekend. i’ll be updating my blog with a few photographs each day from the wedding as i go through these. one thing i loved about this wedding is how excited nichole and kevin were to marry each other – you can really see the happiness in their faces throughout the day. it’s adorable!!

nichole’s adorable little bro. he avoided getting his picture taken at all costs and i had pretty much had to sneak attack him all day.

putting a tux on a teething baby is hard work, but somebody’s got to do it.
