THIS is exactly what I LOVE doing! I may not have been the photographer for my cousin's wedding but she allowed me to put my magical touches to this photo. When I first saw this photo, a vision popped into my head. And to our amazement, this glorious photo came to be...
Isn't this such a beautiful photo? I love the angle, the energy and the sunset.
However the sky looked a little empty to me. What would happen to this if I added some texture? Enjoy ;-)
Some of you may have noticed the groom's coat. It was bunched up a lot so I smoothed some of it. It's little details like that that could drive someone with OCD crazy perhaps.
I also could have done without the stars but, hey, it's my imagination, my magical vision. The idea of adding fairy wings did cross my mind, ;-) , but I didn't want to get too carried away.
Of course, if the bride wanted something else in the sky I will comply completely.
We work as a team to create the perfect photo.
Here is what the bride had to say....
Omg Kathy! OMGGGG!!!!! I have no words to say this is absolutely beautifully beautiful!!!!I Love this so much! Thank you!!! - Evelyn
Imagine the smile on my face. See? This is why I do what I do and desire to keep on doing this so more and more people can enjoy their photos.

My philosophy is that photography should lighten up the heart and the eyes with vibrant color, light and majesty as memories flood back into the mind and soul. No cringing allowed. Only magic! I'm a stay at home mom of our little girl! Photo retouching and restoration have always been my passion since the 1990's. When I'm not retouching I take care of my little girl, my husband, follow God and spend time with His people. All while listening to music all the time. ;-) I also enjoy playing the piano, learning to sew, eat Thai food, lifting weights, singing hymns and trying to make my house a home. Read more...
