Lynn’s Portraits

Lynn approached me because she needed some good portraits for both business and personal use, and also because she felt that she was difficult to photograph.  Because her hair is white, it is often blown out in photographs. 

Setting up to deal with her hair was in fact a fairly routine studio portrait lighting challenge.  Other situations can be technically trickier, such as making a well lit group portrait which includes a bald man.

Lynn was happy with the finished portraits that I delivered to her.  The note that I received from her this morning began, “AWESOME!!! Thank you so much - these look terrific.”

Beth and Brian’s Wedding

I can’t recall ever meeting a nicer, friendlier group of people than Beth and Brian and the large gathering of their family and friends who attended their wedding a few weeks ago.  Here are some of the highlights of the day, as photographed by the Lumacraft Photography team, starting with one frame captured during the rehearsal the night before.  These images are preview quality, without cosmetic touch ups or polished finishing.

Beth and Brian’s wedding guests can contact them for the link to their full online gallery, where the complete set of about 1000 images can be viewed, and individual prints purchased.
