Best of 2010 - Part 8

Here we go with part 8 of the best of 2010! Let's start off with:

Best baby:

Just try to not smile when you look at this picture. I dare you.

Best Bridal Portrait:

Technically not a bride but a model for a bridal gown company. However, I had all of 10 minutes to take this shot so it was just like a busy wedding day as far as having to think fast and work quickly.

However, if you want to be picky about it, I would have to pick this as my favorite actual bride portrait. I know it's not full-length. I know she's standing in a hall and not a church. I know it's not in front of a beautiful sunset. But she just looks so happy and vibrant.

Best Garter Toss:

You would think it was a foul ball at The World Series...

Best Specialty Shot:

This category is for shots that require props or special clothes. This is my favorite and one of the most complimented images from the year.

However, this was a very close second...

Best First Kiss:

This couple got married in front of a huge white curtain. Not my first choice of backgrounds but it does make it possible to do something like this.

Best Shot of Booray with Bride:

I try to get someone to take my picture with every bride I photograph. I never know how the shot will turn out but this one came out great!
Well, that's it! I left out a lot of great pictures but this list was starting to feel like it would never end.!

Best of 2010 - Part 7

"Mama always said you could tell a lot about a person by looking at their shoes," - Forrest Gump

Way back in the dark Ages when I decided to become a Tampa wedding photographer, I gad no idea that I would spend so much time taking pictures of shoes. I'm not really a shoe guy. I don't notice shoes on women very often. But, when it comes to weddings, shoes are important and I've really enjoyed coming up with new ways to photograph them.

Best Weddding Shoe Pictures:

This shot got a blog post of it's own this year so that I could explain how much work goes into a shot that should really be simple. Still a favorite of mine and my best "pure" shoe picture of the year.

Technically not a wedding shoe picture but rather an engagement shoe picture. Simple and sexy.

The bridesmaids and bride all changed into sneakers for the reception. I love the contrast in this shot.

Best of 2010 - Part 6

Continuing our series of the best shots of 2010 we come to:

Best Wedding Rings Photograph

Another tough category but I eventually went with this shot which features a special prop that is used by Perfect Florida Beach Weddings. I'm a big fan of beach weddings but since there is sand everywhere it can be tougher to find places to take pictures like this one. That's why we have a few cool props. :)

Best Family Photograph

Family portraits have come a long way over the years and this is a perfect example of how things have changed. No longer satisfied with the standard, posed, studio type portrait... famlies are looking for something more creative that will serve as a portrait and art. This particular shot is becoming a bit of a trademark for me as I use it at weddings as well.

Best Bar Mitzvah Guest Book Photograph

Whenever i see this photograph I'm reminded of being 13 years old and just beginning to sense that life is going to be a whole lot more complicated than I had imagined.

Best Senior Photograph - Female
"What is she thinking?" I don't know but I wonder everytime I look at this picture.

Stay tuned for Part 7!
