How about we dig in our photo archives and share our Best of 2009 Photos?

I usually prepare an extra slide show and post it on my blog sometime between Christmas & New Years ... so, mine is still in the works ... :wink

How about you guys? Do you have anything you'd be willing to share? A slide show / or maybe a link to your favorite wedding from this year (blog or gallery)? :lust

    I like summing up my year too! Well the previous years was travel photos, but I guess since I been doing more weddings and engagements, it's been that. I'd love to post my fav. boudoir sessions, but I forget which ones I was allowed to post, so I will just leave it at that.

    But here is the links for my fav sessions.
    Favorite wedding slideshow
    Favorite engagement Session slideshow
    Galleries of the videos and photographs!

    I really need to upgrade my smugmug to pro to upload higher res. videos. Needs.. moneys..

    Nicely done Ted!

    If I may ask ... how did you do it? (I haven't ever created a slide show with smugmug, been using other services ...)
    Did you create it with a specific program and then upload it as a movie to a gallery?

    I used proshow producer, the only reason why I keep my PC around.., fiddle and put it all together. Then render and encode and then upload the videos to a gallery onto smugmug.

    Well I'm not what I'd call a wedding photographer yet, so I don't have many shoots to pick a favorite from, but I'll post a single shot from one of the two weddings I did shoot this year for friends. :D

    Um um um I have only one wedding under my belt too lol! I actually seconded (for free coz it's a Craigslist wedding and it's my first pfft!) in New Orleans yesterday. I'll post a whole thread for it so you guys could let me know what I can do to be better. I have another wedding to second with a different photographer at the end of January in Mission, TX.

    This is actually two photos quickly snapped from the same place. Seconding is cool, but most of the time they're not looking at me when the principal was posing them, so I really like moments like these:

    And I like this one coz she looks soooo chill:

    I made a smugmug gallery for my Best of 2008 last year, so I just finished compiling a gallery for Best of 2009 (note: it will have personal and wedding photos from throughout the years highlights to remind me of all the cool stuff that happened this year...but a good vast majority of the photos in there will be wedding stuff). Currently uploading everything to my Best of 2009 gallery, will post a link here later... and then time allowing I'll probably create a fun animoto slideshow to show it all off later as well.

    I put a slight twist on it, I choose previously unseen photos (to the blog) that have risen to the top over the year. I'll update when I post.

    Heh, sorry, I meant that *I* am the lazy one. Thanks for posting, the shots are great! I think the collective shots from everyone are what makes threads like this great. :D

    I love the brides maid photo too. But the one in the back, either she is up to something so devious that we can't see or she is tickling everyone... mwink.gif

    Thank you for this thread - I'm starting a blog for the new year, and this thread inspired me to start it off with my favorite 50 photos from 2009. clap.gif I'm doing them by category, and haven't gotten to my favorite wedding photos there yet, so I'll post them here. They're from the 2 weddings I second shot for this fall. Hopefully more in 2010!!! :photo

    Was yours like an extended version of the song? I found it on iTunes, but yours seemed way longer, and didn't hear yours repeat (at least I thought I didn't headscratch.gif). Good tune though. Have I told you lately that your work is fantastic?? rolleyes1.gif

    Haha.. that is the heathersneakyfeather at work! It has some loops in there and doubles the length. Otherwise the photos go by so fast.... And I had a hard enough time narrowing it down to 250 from 30K+. I am not made for that kind of pain! Laughing.gif!

    Thanks Agnieszka! I just thought to myself... "where is Angies?" and went to your blog! Gorgeous stuff! You should post a link!

    Narrowing it down to 1200, huh? Life is rough for you, I can tell. And they are ALL amazing! Very sneaky to do 2 photos on one slide. I'm gonna have to figure out how you do that and save some time!

    Alrighty, getting together the very-very wedding favorites was a big struggle this year, haha.

    Check out by Best Of-s on my blog. I posted a couple of different shows, depending on how much time you have rolleyes1.gif . You'll probably want to click on the SMALL version of the wedding show (though, I have to say, ... it's still long -> 360 pics).

    Haha. Well, I wanted to post an option for a smaller version on my blog, before people kill me on here. rolleyes1.gif

    The 2 photos on a slide are actually "one picture" (put 2 photos onto one pic in photoshop). I don't think there is an other way to do it ne_nau.gif

    Have to say, yours flows better. Still a bit annoyed I couldn't narrow them down even more, but I'm just really the worst when it comes to deleting photos + I figured it would be nice to see all of my couples .... so ... rolleyes1.gif
