Infrared photography is a unique and creative form of photography that produces stunning and surreal images. Infrared light, which is outside of the visible spectrum, can reveal hidden details in your images and add a dreamy and otherworldly quality to your photos. To capture infrared light, you need a camera and lens that are specifically designed for this type of photography, or a specialized filter that allows infrared light to reach the camera's sensor.

 

If you're using a Canon camera with an EF lens mount and want to try infrared photography, one option is to use the Kolari 720nm Infrared Drop-In Filter for the EF to RF Lens Adapter. This filter is designed to be used with an EF to RF lens adapter, which allows you to use your EF lenses with a Canon camera that has an RF mount, such as the Canon EOS R5 or R6.

The Kolari 720nm Infrared Drop-In Filter is a high-quality filter that blocks all visible light and only allows infrared light with a wavelength of 720nm to reach the camera's sensor. This allows you to capture the unique and beautiful qualities of infrared light, and produce images that are unlike anything you can achieve with visible light photography. The filter comes in a heavy duty protective case with a perfectly fitting cut our for the filter inside. The filter itself feels very well made with its metal enclosure. Kolari also provide a lifetime guarantee against defects. The build quality felt very well made and professional.

One of the benefits of using the Kolari 720nm Infrared Drop-In Filter is that it produces very little noise in your images. This is because the 720nm wavelength is near the edge of the infrared spectrum, and it produces less noise compared to filters that allow for even more infrared light to pass through. Additionally, the 720nm wavelength is close enough to visible light that it still provides good contrast and color information in your images.

Using the Kolari 720nm Infrared Drop-In Filter is simple and straightforward. The filter is designed to be a drop-in filter, which means that it fits directly into the lens adapter and does not require any additional attachments. To use the filter, simply remove the original filter from the lens adapter and replace it with the Kolari 720nm Infrared Drop-In Filter.

 

The only thing left to do is swapping the blue and red channels in photoshop. You can achieve this with either an action or manually. If you want to do it manually or use some other software, find the option called channel mixer. In the red channel, reduce the red to 0 and set blue to 100. Do the same for the blue channel reducing blue to 0 and setting the red to 100.

Overall, the Kolari 720nm Infrared Drop-In Filter for the EF to RF Lens Adapter is a great option for anyone who wants to try infrared photography with their Canon camera and EF lenses. The filter is easy to use and produces stunning results, and it's a great way to add a new and creative dimension to your photography. Whether you're a seasoned photographer or just starting out, the Kolari 720nm Infrared Drop-In Filter is definitely worth considering for your next infrared photography project.

High School Seniors – Where the Magic Happens!

While I absolutely love all forms of photography, there's an extra special place in my heart for high school senior sessions. There's just something magical about capturing the spirit and energy of these young adults as they step into the next chapter of their lives. Whether we're out in nature, embracing the elements, or in the cozy confines of a studio, every session is a unique adventure, and I love nothing more than creating images as distinctive as the seniors themselves.

Dancing in the Park https://www.travisbrooksphotography.com/blog/2023/12/dancing-in-the-park This past summer I had the opportunity to photograph with Hayley, who is a very skilled and talented contortionist and dancer. I wanted to showcase her talent of dance while also incorporating some architectural aspects and dimensions to the shoot. We opted for the Tappan Square, which is a park centrally located in downtown Oberlin, Ohio. I had been to this location before and had photographed a few other sessions throughout the small square as well, so I was pretty accustomed to the area. I definitely think the location provided a bold contrast to the light and delicate poses Hayley was so effortlessly portraying in the images.

 

Take a look at some of the fabulous images we created!

The Sigma 14-24 2.8 DG Ultra Wide Angle https://www.travisbrooksphotography.com/blog/2023/7/sigma-14-24-Art The Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art lens is perfect for photographers who love to capture the world in all its wide-angle glory. It's the lens that's always ready to go, no matter what kind of adventure you're embarking on. I decided to pick one up from Adorama shortly before my road trip to Utah this past Spring. I wanted to see how well it would perform capturing some of the most grandiose and awe inspiring landscapes in the United States. This lens was the final piece needed to complete my "trinity" of Sigma lenses.

One of the first things you'll notice about this lens is its impressive focal length range. With a range of 14-24mm, the ability to capture sweeping landscapes, towering buildings, and tight interior shots is immediately realized. It seems as if a whole new perspective is opened up as you begin to see compositions in exciting new ways. Whether you're exploring the great outdoors or snapping photos in a cramped studio, this lens has you covered. It does a phenomenal job of accentuating features of your subject and encapsulating the entire scene. This works well especially in athletic portraits when you wish to show the setting or location of the image as well as the subject itself. You are also able to accentuate or exaggerate certain parts of your image. But beware not to get too close to the edges of the frame as this magnifies the effect.

But the Sigma 14-24 EF lens isn't just about its wide-angle capabilities. It's also incredibly versatile, thanks to its maximum aperture of f/2.8. This means you can shoot in low light conditions without sacrificing image quality, and it also gives you the ability to create beautiful bokeh effects in your photos. I have come to love the wide aperture of Sigma's ƒ2.8 lenses and this lens has proven to produce sharp results, even at wide-open apertures. I was able to pair this lens with my Canon R5 via an RF to EF adapter. The added adapter did add a little length overall to my kit, but image quality was not effected. I would definitely recommend this EF lens even paired with a new mirrorless camera system. The cost savings of adapting EF glass to an RF system currently outweighs the added costs of RF native glass.

The lens is built to last, too. Its robust construction and dust- and splash-proof design make it ideal for outdoor photography, and it can withstand even the most challenging environments.  It has a built in metal petal hood that helps to protect the large front glass element that noticeably protrudes from the front of the lens. The front lens cap also feels solid and increases my confidence in its protection abilities of the front element. That large front element also catches a lot of light when a direct light source is in frame, but with Sigma's Super Multi-Layer Coating, ghosting and flare are minimized, helping to retain some of the contrast and clarity in your images. There is no way around it, the lens is hefty and feels quite solid throughout. When compared to the Canon 12-24 the weight seems more evenly spread, whereas the Canon's weight is distributed more frontward. Either way, the large front element is weighty and will add 2.53 lb to your setup.

If you're a photographer who loves to push the boundaries and capture the world in a different perspective, the Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art lens is definitely worth considering. With its impressive focal length range, versatile aperture, and rugged construction, it's the perfect lens for adventurers and creative minds alike. So why not add it to your kit today and see where it takes you?

My Guide to an Unforgettable Senior Photo Session https://www.travisbrooksphotography.com/blog/2023/5/Senior_Guide Boy laying across hood of jeep wearing a hoodie and sunglassesAndrew

In my over 12 years of photography, I have to say high school seniors have to be my all time favorite group of people to photograph. There is so much creativity that can be infused into each senior session, whether it is showcasing athletic power and might or capturing a fun energetic personality, seniors are a lot of fun!

So what can you expect your senior photo experience to look like and what are some tips to help you along the way?

As a wedding and senior photographer, I know that having the right gear is crucial to capturing the perfect shot. A high-quality telephoto zoom lens is an essential tool for capturing those intimate and emotional moments during a wedding. It is also important when you need the flexibility and range when photographing many other styles and genres of photography such as portraits, wildlife and landscapes. The Sigma 70-200 f2.8 DG OS HSM Sports Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon is a versatile and high-quality lens that is well-suited for all types of photography. Let's dive into the reasons why this lens should be in your gear bag.

Design and Build

The Sigma 70-200 f2.8 DG OS HSM Sports lens is built with a durable and ergonomic design, which makes it perfect for use in both indoor and outdoor environments. The lens incorporates an inner zoom which means the barrel length does not change in the zoom of the lens. Furthermore, since the front of the lens does not rotate, polarizing filters can be used much easier. The lens has a weather-resistant construction that protects it from dust and moisture, which is especially important for outdoor weddings or senior shoots. The Sigma 70-200 also incorporates a water and oil-repellent coating that allows water to be wiped away easily and prevents oil from sticking to the surface. This helps with the maintenance of the lens surface become even easier. The lens is also designed with a customizable tripod socket, which can be adjusted to different angles and provides a stable and secure mount for the lens when shooting on a tripod or monopod.

 

The lens is quite hefty, weighing in at 3.97 lbs. It can especially get quite heavy when trekking a long hike or carrying in your camera bag, but the rugged build and optical quality help to compensate for this weighty lens. I have been using the Sigma 70-200 for over 3 and a half years across a wide variety of climates and conditions. Shortly after purchasing the lens, pushed the weather sealing to the test as I photographed in the rain for over 4 hours on the Alaskan seaside. Even though the weight is something to consider, the build quality weather sealing, and optical performance is phenomenal and produces amazing results.

Optical Performance

The Sigma 70-200 f2.8 DG OS HSM Sports lens has an advanced optical design that produces high-quality, sharp, and clear images. The lens includes two FLD (Fluorite) and three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements, which minimize chromatic aberration and ensure accurate color reproduction. The lens also features a Super Multi-Layer Coating that reduces flare and ghosting, ensuring high contrast images even in challenging lighting conditions.

 

The lens has a fast f/2.8 maximum aperture, which allows for shallow depth of field effects and provides excellent low-light performance. This makes it perfect for creating beautifully blurred backgrounds and capturing intimate, emotional moments during weddings.

Autofocus

The Sigma 70-200 f2.8 DG OS HSM Sports lens features a fast and responsive Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) that provides accurate and quiet autofocus. The lens also includes a manual focus override function that allows you to adjust the focus manually without switching to manual focus mode. This provides more flexibility and control when capturing those quick fleeting moments. When paired with the Canon EOS R5's subject detection, the lens performs very quickly and locks on focus in an instant. The lens also includes a focus limiter if you determine that you do not need the entire focus range available, also increasing the speed of focus.

Image Stabilization

The lens features an Optical Stabilizer (OS) system that minimizes camera shake and provides up to 4 stops of stabilization, allowing you to shoot handheld at slower shutter speeds without worrying about blur caused by camera shake. Intelligent OS is an algorithm that enables photographers to pan more effectively. It uses information collected by an acceleration sensor to detect a panning movement (horizontal, vertical or diagonal) and deliver effective stabilization. This feature is particularly useful when capturing moments where it's essential to have a steady hand and still get sharp, clear images.

Conclusion

Overall, the Sigma 70-200 f2.8 DG OS HSM Sports Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon is a versatile and high-quality lens that is well-suited for a wide range of photographic genres. I have found that it is particularly useful in capturing portraits. With its advanced optical design, fast and responsive autofocus, and durable construction, this lens is an excellent choice for photographers who want to capture intimate, emotional moments in a variety of lighting conditions. Whether you're capturing the joy and love of a wedding, the unique personality of a senior, or a stunning landscape, the Sigma 70-200 f2.8 DG OS HSM Sports lens is sure to deliver stunning results and help you create beautiful, timeless images. Will you be adding this to your camera bag?

Brittany & Tim https://www.travisbrooksphotography.com/blog/2023/2/brittany-tim  

This past September I had the opportunity to photograph the Wedding of Tim and Brittany in Westlake, Ohio. I have known Brittany for many many years from riding the same school bus together in High School to going to the same youth group at church. I was very honored and grateful to be able to capture her big day.

As with most weddings, the preparation is one of the most important pieces to kick off the big day. Even in a crowded hotel room, there were some great moments captured and some nice set ups for those every special detail shots.

The weather ended up being absolutely perfect and we were able to have their first look take place at the place they had their first date - Starbucks.  This particular Starbucks is very busy and constantly bustling with people going in and out throughout the outdoor shopping plaza. My wife was able to shuttle over to the Starbucks with Tim while I rode over with Brittany. We were able to discreetly set the whole thing up, and while there were a lot of people watching the whole scene play out, Tim and Brittany were taking the moment for themselves.

The ceremony and reception took place at Wagner's of Westlake, a venue well suited for both weddings and receptions alike. The hall was beautifully decorated and set for the big event.

The Helios 44-2 58mm f/2: A Classic Lens for Creative Photography https://www.travisbrooksphotography.com/blog/2023/2/the-helios-44-2-58mm-f/2-a-classic-lens-for-creative-photography The Helios 44-2 58mm f/2 is a classic lens that has been popular among photographers for decades. This lens, which was originally manufactured in the Soviet Union in the 1970s, has become a cult favorite among photographers for its unique character and versatility. I've spent some time, in both personal and professional applications, exploring what makes the Helios 44-2 58mm f/2 such a special lens and why it's worth considering for your photography kit.

Bokeh and Swirly Bokeh

One of the most distinctive features of the Helios 44-2 58mm f/2 is its bokeh. Bokeh refers to the quality of the out-of-focus areas in an image, and the Helios 44-2 is known for producing smooth and creamy bokeh that is highly sought after by photographers. In addition to smooth bokeh, the Helios 44-2 is also known for producing a unique "swirly" bokeh that gives images a dreamy, ethereal look. This swirly bokeh is created by the lens' spherical aberrations, which cause light to bend in a circular pattern as it passes through the lens.

While the bokeh and swirly bokeh are the main selling points of the Helios 44-2 58mm f/2, it's worth mentioning that the lens is also known for its sharpness and color rendition. The lens is capable of producing sharp images with good detail, and its color reproduction is warm and rich, with a slightly yellowish tone that gives images a classic, film-like look.

Build Quality and Price

The Helios 44-2 58mm f/2 is a well-built lens that is designed to withstand heavy use. The lens features a metal construction that feels solid and durable, and its manual focus mechanism is smooth and precise. I enjoyed pairing my lens with the Canon EOS R5 with the included manual focus assists available on that body. Being able to punch into the scene and see the exact focus was great. The focus peaking was also a nice addition to visually see the focus pull as I was rotating the lens' focus ring.  In terms of price, the Helios 44-2 58mm f/2 is very affordable, making it a great choice for photographers on a budget who want a unique and versatile lens for their kit. You can easily find them listed on eBay for ~$55-$65. You can also find really affordable M42 to EF/ EFS adapters from Fotodioxpro for as little as $15.

Final Thoughts

The Helios 44-2 58mm f/2 is a classic lens that is highly regarded by photographers for its unique bokeh, sharpness, and color rendition. If you're looking for a lens that will help you create creative and visually interesting images, the Helios 44-2 58mm f/2 is definitely worth considering. The manual nature of the lens did slow my workflow down slightly (I tend to run/gun), but the shakeup of pace was refreshing and allowed me to think more about composition and framing. The affordability and quantity of these lenses on the market make it worthwhile to try out and experiment with. So why not add one to your photography kit and see what kind of magic you can create with this classic lens?

The Exposure Triangle: Understanding the Fundamentals of Photography https://www.travisbrooksphotography.com/blog/2023/1/the-exposure-triangle-understanding-the-fundamentals-of-photography MicrophoneMicrophone

Photography is an art form that requires a combination of technical skills and creative vision. One of the most important concepts in photography is the exposure triangle, which refers to the three elements that determine the exposure of an image: aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. These 3 fundamental functions of a camera all control the driving force behind photography - light. Let's explore each of these elements in depth and discuss how they work together to create a well-exposed image.

 

Aperture

 

Aperture refers to the size of the opening in the lens through which light enters the camera body. The size of the aperture is expressed in f-stops, with larger f-stops indicating a smaller aperture and vice versa. Aperture affects two things in an image: depth of field and amount of light.

Close up of camera apertureCamera ApertureLens front side exposed aperture blades diagram of camera aperture at different opening stagesCamera ApertureLens front side exposed aperture blades

 

A large aperture (small f-stop such as ƒ1.2 or ƒ1.8) creates a shallow depth of field, which means that only a small, narrow portion of the image will be in focus (typically in a plane parallel to the camera sensor), while the rest will be blurred. This can be useful for creating a more dramatic and artistic look, especially in portraits and macro photography. On the other hand, a small aperture (large f-stop such as ƒ11 or ƒ16) creates a large depth of field, which means that most of the image will be in focus (again, typically on a deeper plane parallel to the camera sensor). This is useful for landscapes, architectural photography, and other situations where you want to keep everything in focus.

Shallow depth of fieldShallow depth of field Large depth of fieldLarge depth of field

In addition to depth of field, aperture also affects the amount of light that reaches the camera sensor. A larger aperture lets in more light, which can be useful in low-light conditions, while a smaller aperture lets in less light, which can be useful for controlling the exposure in bright light. You can think of this in the same way the human eye behaves - as you are in a darker environment your pupil dilates and opens to let in more light; inversely, the brighter the environment, the more your pupil will constrict to limit the amount of light.

 

Shutter Speed

 

Shutter speed refers to the amount of time that the camera's shutter is open, allowing light to reach the sensor. Shutter speed is expressed in seconds or fractions of a second, such as 1/60s, 1/125s, etc. Shutter speed affects two things in an image: motion blur and amount of light.

Camera Sensorcamera Sensor

 

A fast shutter speed (e.g., 1/1000s) will freeze motion in an image, which is useful for capturing fast-moving subjects such as athletes, birds, or vehicles. On the other hand, a slow shutter speed (e.g., 1/4s or slower) will create motion blur, which can be useful for conveying a sense of movement or for creating a more artistic look.

1.6 sec1.6 sec

1/250 sec1/250 sec

Motion blur - long shutter speedMotion blur - long shutter speed Freeze motion - short shutter speedFreeze motion - short shutter speed

In addition to motion blur, shutter speed also affects the amount of light that reaches the sensor. A slower shutter speed lets in more light, which can be useful in low-light conditions, while a faster shutter speed lets in less light, which can be useful for controlling the exposure in bright light.

 

ISO

 

ISO refers to the sensitivity of the camera's sensor to light. A higher ISO value means that the sensor is more sensitive to light, while a lower ISO value means that the sensor is less sensitive to light. ISO affects the amount of light captured in an image and the noise level in the image.

 

A high ISO value (e.g., ISO 800 or higher) can be useful in low-light conditions, as it allows you to use a faster shutter speed or smaller aperture to control the exposure. However, a high ISO value can also result in more noise in the image, which can be noticeable as graininess or speckles in the image. A low ISO value (e.g., ISO 100 or lower) is useful for controlling noise in the image, but it may require you to use a slower shutter speed or larger aperture to control the exposure, especially in low-light conditions.

Balancing the Exposure Triangle

 

Now that we've covered the basics of each element in the exposure triangle, let's talk about how to balance them to create a well-exposed image. The key is to understand that aperture, shutter speed, and ISO are all interrelated and affect each other.

ChildChild PuppyPuppy

For example, if you use a large aperture to create a shallow depth of field, you'll need to compensate by either using a faster shutter speed or a higher ISO to prevent overexposure. Similarly, if you use a fast shutter speed to freeze motion, you'll need to compensate by either using a smaller aperture or a higher ISO to prevent underexposure.

 

The key to balancing the exposure triangle is to understand the relationship between aperture, shutter speed, and ISO and to adjust one or more of them to achieve the desired exposure. This may take some trial and error, but with practice, you'll become more familiar with how to balance the exposure triangle to create the look and feel that you want.

Final thoughts

 

The exposure triangle is a fundamental concept in photography that every photographer should understand. By mastering the art of balancing aperture, shutter speed, and ISO, you'll be able to create well-exposed images that capture your creative vision. So next time you're out shooting, experiment with different combinations of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO and see what works best for you. Happy shooting!

Alaska - The Ultimate Destination https://www.travisbrooksphotography.com/blog/2022/7/alaska---the-ultimate-destination It has been 3 years since my trip to Alaska and I can still vividly remember the grandiose landscapes and larger than life vistas. 

 

In 2019, myself along with a group of teenagers and fellow adults traveled to Kenai Alaska for a missions trip organized by New Life Church in Sandusky, Ohio. The youth group was traveling to help with the yearly Salmon Fish Frenzy that occurs every year, in July, as a way for locals to provide food for themselves. It is a large event with hundreds of people fishing for salmon along the coast line. Our purpose was to provide food, games and some entertainment for the locals and their kids during the day as fishing was happening as well as sharing the gospel.  This was truly a fantastic experience and such a great opportunity to meet so many great people.

Near the end of our trip we had the opportunity for some sight seeing as well as some epic adventures. I was able to join a few others from the group in seeing some of the Alaskan coastline as we sailed around the Seward inlet. Alaska definitely has some of the best views and I, being a photographer, was loving every minute of it! I can't wait to head back and explore even more of Alaska!

Greene Family https://www.travisbrooksphotography.com/blog/2022/6/greene-family I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to photograph the Greene family over the years. They all bring so much fun and excitement to their sessions. It is also exciting to be able to continue to see each of the kids grow and feel more and more relaxed during their sessions. This alone helps in capturing those special, genuine moments that will last a lifetime. 

 

For this session we ended up going out to Huron to the James H. McBride arboretum. The scenery is perfect and lends itself to fantastic photography. If you are ever in Huron this is a definite place to visit.

 

Yet again, we were able to capture some great family portraits! Check out the images below:

Vigour Auto https://www.travisbrooksphotography.com/blog/2022/5/vigour-auto I've had the very fun opportunity to photograph a longtime friend's new businesses venture and startup. Starting a few years ago, Joey had become interested in detailing cars, with a goal of one day being able to work on high end and exotic cars. As one of the only high end car detailers in the area, he was pioneering the market and building his clientele. 

 

Through some of his projects, he wanted some images and video to help showcase his work. This was a very exciting opportunity for both Joey and myself as I was able to photograph some nice cars and build my automotive portrait portfolio, and Joey was able to have a great portfolio of images to showcase his work.

 

Over the course of a few months I was able to photograph the process, from start to finish to really show how much a good detailing job can transform a vehicle. This whole process was both enjoyable and eye opening, giving me a new respect to the entire process.

 

I am grateful for the opportunity and for a good friend to allow me to photograph a different genre from my normality. If you are interested in having your car detailed be sure to check out Vigour Auto Detailing

For their family photos this year, we ended up traveling to the Castalia quarry, which offers some great landscapes for photos. The quarry is unique in the fact that it can create scenes that do not look like they were photographed in Ohio. 

 

The warm tones of the fall leaves helped to pull everyone's color palette together to create some nice images. Take a look at some of the images from their family session!

Dynamic Lighting - Advanced Tutorial https://www.travisbrooksphotography.com/blog/2020/3/dynamic-lighting-advanced-tutorial Intro to Video?

If you already know me, I started my interest in photography only after having been shooting short videos and promos for some time. The original thought going into college was that I would end up pursuing a cinematography degree. During the course of my pursuit, however, I switched gears and began to primarily focus on photography. While I have filmed smaller projects here and there over the years, my main focus has been photography. It was a nice change of pace and maybe even a little bit nostalgic to begin filming again.

During a slower than usual couple weeks at work and before a mandatory shut down and quarantine, I was able to wrangle a few of my coworkers to help in filming a quick little tutorial video. I had started filming tutorial and tip videos a couple months prior that we would end up distributing to the other studios in our territory in order to better our photography and creativity as a whole. I generally ended up, due to having the equipment and know how, becoming the camera man and filming all of the various angles and perspectives for each tutorial. This time however, I was able to step from behind the camera and have a chance to show off some really cool lighting techniques that I would typically use in my day to day studio workflow. While the video does go into some specifics, it is generally aimed at a stylistic and inspirational photography approach rather than a technical dissertation.  I may try to film some more tutorial or quick tip videos in the future and peel back the curtain on some of the fun photography techniques I've learned over the years. Check out the video below as well as some of the "straight out of camera" reference images!

Breaking out! https://www.travisbrooksphotography.com/blog/2020/3/breaking-out Man popping out of yellow paper backgroundYellow Self Portrait-3
This week I decided to try one of my new color seamless paper rolls for a quick shoot. Instead of the typical setup, I decided to try shooting through the roll by ripping a hole in the center and framing the subject (myself) directly in the center. In order to help ensure the hole in the paper from falling to complete black, I decided to throw a colored light behind me into a grey seamless paper roll to add a little bit of interest to the background. 

The main light used in the images was a beauty dish with a diffusion sock placed high and slightly to camera right. There is also a gridded strip box behind and to camera left of the subject (just to give separation and dimension to the image). There was also a large parabolic umbrella (diffused) used as a fill light to bring in more detail to the shadow areas. For the background light (illuminating the grey seamless) both blue and orange gels were used on a monolight. Check out some of the images below!

Ethan & Sami Engagement https://www.travisbrooksphotography.com/blog/2019/5/ethan-sami-engagement I had the pleasure of photographing Ethan & Sami's engagement images in May of 2019, a few months before their July wedding. I had known and worked with Sami's father for a couple years and was asked by him to possibly take a few images for their engagement and to go over some details of the upcoming wedding. It was my first time hopping around Columbus, OH for photos. Ethan and Sami had some great spots picked out and we ended up with some stellar photos!

David & Jessa https://www.travisbrooksphotography.com/blog/2015/2/david-jessa I knew David back from my high school days and was fortunate enough to have the privilege of photographing both his and Jessa's wedding down in Dayton, OH back in 2014. Both David and Jessa are incredible people and totally genuine! Oh and they both are spectacular dancers - bringing their A-game with them as they danced the night away at the barn.
