Last night I stuck around downtown after the sunset to get some night time photos, and this is what I got 🙂 Kind of miss living on the 32nd floor of the Republic Tower BUT I have to say I like my house in the suburbs with a big back yard. Either way, here is Downtown Dallas around 9PM last night right before it started pouring raining.

When Kassie told me she wanted a mix of cool architecture and nature, I knew the exact place I wanted to take them to here in Dallas, The SMU Campus! I love this area because at sunset, the photos turn out exactly like this – unique and the light is unbelievable. There were so many tulips out at this time, which is Kassie’s favorite flower. Looking forward to take photos of you guys on your Big Day! And congratulations to you both!!

Meet Ashley & Jimmy! I got to spent a few hours in their company yesterday – they are a super sweet and down to earth couple, very much in love, and rocked their engagement session even though Ashley was freezing the whole time! I am super excited to photograph their wedding, as it will be at a winery later this year. Congratulations!

The new Nikon D4s. WOW. I felt like I was coming home from a hospital with a new baby today. I even put the bag in the front seat instead of the trunk, you know, just in case… just so I can keep an eye on it. And maybe one hand on it as well!

I couldn’t wait to open it, and when I did, boy was I excited to snap away some photos. As many of you are aware, my slight obsession with anything the color of tiffany blue continues. So, why wouldn’t I take the first photos of some of my Tiffany & Co boxes and my own ring?? These were shot at f/5 at various bigh ISOs. I am very impressed with the ISO of 8000 on this camera. These images look about as good as some on the D700 at 1600. Fantastic quality, and I am very, very excited to try it out on people this weekend!

These images have been 100% straight out of the camera, 100% untouched other than the DNG conversion to JPG I had to perform due to Lightroom 5.3 not having the ability to read these files yet. Waiting on Lightroom 5.4 release for that! Settings were on auto white balance around 7PM at night. The Tiffany & Co box and ring set photos are shot from ISO 7,000 +.

This is another set of photos that I decided to take the first night of my camera ownership and expanded the ISO a little more. Still, beautiful images straight out of camera.  0 Editing. This was shot with my Nikon D4s and a 35mm 1.4GPIN
