Sunday stills: Flowers/wildflowers

First off I have to post one of my first, and favorite pictures I took when I first got my Nikon last year.
I love the vibrant colour and detail in this macro. Completely unedited.

Secondly was one of my best friends wedding today. Amanda and Mikey. This was their table with their awesome green colours and green flowers. All images are SOTC, strait out of the camera/just converted from RAW to JPG because I just got home. Some of the lighting inside the tent was less than favorable and I forgot my external flashes.
It was kind of a shotgun wedding. (bad, unedited picture, but you get the point)They have been engaged for a wile now. (Not really flower related from here on, feel free to move on to other Sunday stills)

They love eachother like a fat kid loves cake.I do believe I told them that. I would.


They are goofy.

Totally meant for each other.

I wish them a very happy life together.

Amanda is two months pregnant. I am pretty sure shes going to eat her young. Or at least most of the strawberries on the appetizer table.


Tomorrow I am off to Ireland. I have so much to do still and haven't really even started packing. I got my tall boots, two pairs of riding gloves and some pants and lots of socks. Thats the important stuff right? I think maybe I should hire someone to be my assistant and do half of the million things I always seem to have to do all at once.
Keep checking back for posts on the beautiful, green Irish countryside and lots of bitless riding.

For those asking the name of the first flower I think it is a Coreopsis, but I'm not positive. Coreopsis come in many different variety's and colours. The most common colour is yellow. Beautiful photo's Sydney. You make a great wedding photographer because you bring out the crazy in people. I hear that the volcano is acting up again. Hope it does not effect your return flight home. LOVE you and have fun in Ireland.
