I am excited to be shooting Cayla & Wes’ wedding in a few months. Last weekend we hung out and took some fun engagement pictures at their wedding venue (Milkyway Farms) and a few other locations. I really love how they turned out.
What happens we you run in to some of your favorite clients on vacation in Aspen Colorado? PHOTOSHOOT! I shot Leslie and Taylor’s awesome wedding last year in Atlanta so I was thrilled when I found out they were going to be on vacation the same place and time we were. For me it is like the best vacation you can imagine. I got to be on vacation in a really cool place and also have models to take photos of at those really neat locations. So once I got there I sent them a text asking if they were down to hang out and take some photos one day. They were all for it so this happened: We had a lot of fun! It started snowing pretty heavy about 20 minutes into our shoot so we had some snow flakes in the photos.

Create a custom preset and fill out the following tabs with what you want to show up on facebook. Under IPTC Copyright: The “Copyright” box is what will show up on facebook under the image in the description. I have “By Josh Bennett Photography – www.josh-bennett.com”. You can put what ever text you want here and it will show up on facebook. Save the preset by giving it a name. Then return to the library tab. Apply the preset to all the photos: Select all the photos that you want to add this information to while in the library tab. Then go back over […]
