High fashion bride

High fashion bride, originally uploaded by Ardent Photography.

This photo was taken in the ladies room at the reception. I loved the 1930's original subway tiles. I applied a Kubota action to this to try to add some drama to the photo.

Two Become One - July 14, 2007

The bride and groom did this themselves. Like I said... DREAM COUPLE! I just told them to go into this structure. I originally wanted to do just the bride, but the groom's silouette just looked too amazing. I'm glad I saw the bigger picture.

This photo was inspired by Scoobs1969... what a great way to showcase the wedding bands. This shot is straight out of the camera... however I did do a slight color balance modification in Camera Raw.

This photo is one of the MANY awesome frames that I took at yesterday's wedding. Janelle and Eric were the dream couple. Sophisticated, stylish, and most of all totally in love! They just fell into every "pose".

I also tried something new at this wedding. I downloaded frames to my MacBook and did a small slideshow before we left. By this morning I had 3 brides inquiring for 2008! YAY!!!

I will create a set of more shots soon.

Orthopedic Specialists - Appleton, Wisconsin

Waiting area of Orthopedic Specialists in Appleton. Their new building showcases furniture from Nordon Business Environments.

This image is a panoramic created in Photomerge in Photoshop. I took 3 images and merged them to create a wide angle view of the lobby area.

I was hired to take photos for my husband's company, Nordon Business Environments. The interiors of these buildings are quite beautiful. In this lobby to the right there is a 2 story water feature. Windows allow natural light to fall into the enormous waiting area. In the winter the fireplace can keep patients warm while catching up with a magazine.

Nordon Business Environments has the ability to design entire office interiors. They specialize in space planning, installation, system furniture and much more.
