    Stunning Jose! I am still working on getting the exposures on my tablesettings just right… It seems so silly a thing to get wrong, but you get so focused on shooting wide open and getting that “look” and then you go back and realize you’ve blown out the white plates to the point where you’ve lost details. (Eye roll). My goal for this year is to REALLY LOOK at these images I admire from film photographs I love from people like you, and Messina and KT Merry and Kate Headly and really focus on getting the details RIGHT. My goal is to pay attention. Not just make it look pretty, but get it RIGHT.

    I love these, and I love how you get it right, every detail, every time! :)

    PS The hugging shot of the bridesmaids is such a clever way to showcase the lace on their sleeves!
