Carley & Todd

Carley and Todd are incredible. They were such a joy to hang out with. And they love to laugh. It is always fun to be in the presence of a couple that is completely comfortable with each other. Did I mention that it was freezing outside? Yeah, cant even tell, could you? Yeah, Carley and Todd are that hot!.... just look at Carley - seriously fierce.

Ok, really... how gorgeous is this place.... It is going to be unbelievable for the wedding. And oh, my heart, I am so excited for it. Carley has such a vision and it is going to be a complete fairytale. Thank you, Carley and Todd for being amazing and for letting me in on the secret of this amazing location and even more for letting me be a part of what is going to be an incredible celebration of life and love.
Now is the time to book your wedding photographer... This is one thing you dont want to wait on.... photographers book up fast - and that includes me. Email me at talleyimages@yahoo.com to let me know when your date is and to see if Im available... I would love to talk with you.

A Challenge

So the girls over at http://www.twophotogs.com/ put up a challenge... take pics without using your DSLR (camera that you can change the lenses on).... I was excited and nervous.... excited b/c well, it forces me to get more practice with my little point and shoot - which forces me to work on composition and lighting b/c I cant use manual (which is frustrating at times!).... but scared b/c I really didnt know how they would turn out. But at least my arm would get a break - my little point and shoot does not provide such a workout for my arm as my big heavy DSLR.

Last month, we went on a church conference to Gatlinburg, TN.... it was the perfect opportunity to take pics... as I could not be lugging the DSLR all over.... so here you go.... these are barely edited (which kind of throws my OCD into overdrive, but I just dont have the time to really splurge on the editing like I normally do).... so you will just have to enjoy them as is.... the first 3 are my entries into the contest, and the rest are just for your enjoyment... :)

I love how you cant tell where the real thing ends and the reflection begins... arent the colors beautiful!

I guess you can probably tell that the jellyfish were my favorite... I absolutely find them fascinating! They look so fragile and move so gracfully, but they are so dangerous.... and we get such an amazing opportunity to view the close-up details in such a controled environment... love that!
So I guess my point and shoot didnt too bad after all.... :)
And since Angela was sweet enough to spare my feelings.... Im sending her a gift (cause thats how I roll - I love comments!).... so Angela, please email me at talleyimages@yahoo.com and let me know your address.... and to answer your question...
- well, yes and no... Im originally from Crawford, Ms - which is a tiny, tiny town about 3o minutes outside of Columbus... and is also the hometown of Jerry Rice... so I did kind of grow up in Columbus as I went to school there, but I didnt actually live here until about 3 years ago....
Happy Thursday everyone!
