this was supposed to be published later on, but i just can't wait.

dear couples of the world, i'm sure you think you're cute, but these two are cuter. sorry about the misprint. i've known cassia for as long as i can remember, because when it comes to some people, you don't meet them, you just grow up knowing them. like family. we shared common interests in books, and we were apart of the same homeschool group for awhile, so we saw each other frequently. it wasn't until recently, though, that she told me about daniel (she has good taste, i'd like to say), and at last sunday's spirit fest concert in round rock [any of you listen to spirit 105.9?] i got to meet him. 

so naturally, i dragged them over to the parking lot for a spontaneous photoshoot, and this is what happened. honestly, guys? i love couples. i love the way they lock fingers and absentmindedly give each other back rubs and always smile at each other and hug and kiss and things like that. it's sweet, it's like being at home. and with certain couples, you can see them when they're a lot older, still doing the same things they are now. that's the way it is for cassia and daniel. and i look forward to shooting their wedding! #winkwink


-kiss kiss kiss, can't help falling in love-

  9. these are awesome!
    I have just noticed something about your photo's that bother me. But i don't know if you are doing that on purpose. if you are, then thats totally fine :)
    But your photo's seem to be really grainy (also known as noise) and there are two ways to fix that. 1) lower your ISO, because the higher the ISO the more noisy the photo or 2) fix it in post production with a noise reducer (depending on your editing software, some are better than others)
    this is just in case you didn't know!
    but if this is the style you're going for then you do it well :)
    Have a fantastic day! and never stop taking pictures! :)

    1. they're supposed to be like that. the point of my editing is to give the photos a rich film feel. i use vsco. :)

    2. They look a bit TOO blurry and grainy though. Might I suggest that you try a more natural edit? Just a thought! :)

    3. i have to admit that when editing these photos, i had such a temptation to just make them all b&w! however, the blurry/graininess is all photobucket's doing. i found that when uploading the same photo to both photobucket and flickr, photobucket added grain/blur/strange tint to the photos, whereas flickr preserved the overall quality of the photo. i would've uploaded these photos to flickr, but i'm writing out of photo room and need money to pay for a pro account. so if you want to give me $25, i'll love you forever. ;)

      Delete
    4. Oh! - okay; thanks for letting me know! :) I'd LOVE to give you $25, but I just can't at the moment... ;( Good luck on your future editing!

    5. I like your photos just the way they are, Joce! They're precious and inspiring!!! So just take them and edit them how YOU like :)

      Delete
    6. oh okay! that makes sense to me :)
      sorry if I seemed like i was being mean or judgmental! the only reason it bothered me is that i didn't know if you were doing that on purpose or not. i'm not just saying this when i say that you do that style well! and I really do love your photos! :)

      Delete
    7. no, sweetie! it's fine. it's totally fine. i'm sure i didn't respond the way i should've, which probably bothered a lot of people. i know it bothered me. our intentions just don't come across very well on the internet. that's why face-to-face is better.
      however, i will be taking your advice, as my photos are constantly growing, and i will definitely try what you're saying! so thank you very much, dearheart. it's totally fine. i think this was all a big misunderstanding. :)

      Delete
    8. oh this makes me so happy!! :) I was so afraid i had offended you when i really just meant it out of kindness! :)
      I hope you are having a fantastic day! :)

  11. Aw, what a cute couple! I love her hair. :-)
    Awesome photos, Jocee.

  12. I agree with this. Why are you trying to get a film feel from digital photo's ? That looks fake 99% of the time. If you want film, buy a film camera

    1. well, you may not like my style, but i do. again, photobucket messes with the quality of the photo, so until i get money to pay for a better image storage system, this is the way it's going to be. :)

      Delete
    2. All that matters is that YOU like your style (altho lots of others do too:)). I'm ticked at people who are "bothered" just because your editing style may not be THEIR style. Come ON people! :) is there really a need to comment when you're just gonna down the (wonderful) pics?

  13. jocee, these pictures are awesome! you did such a great job! :)

  14. Aw, they are the cutest couple. Good job, girl!

  15. LOVE these, Jocee. They're a super adorable couple and you captured them so well.


    Blessings!

    They are gorgeous.

  17. Oh, I just love these photos...you are an excellent photographer, Jocee :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. the first one oh my goodness. you did a wonderful job on these! :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I don't necessarily love these pictures, but the colors + editing are to die for! Good job! :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. yeaaah, these aren't the best photos in the world (they ARE blurry, not just photobucket-quality blurry..trust me, I know actual blurry photos from low-quality-blurred photos, but I like how you captured their love for eachother. :) I'm seriously not trying to be mean here; you def. have somewhat of an eye for it. I see tons of things wrong with these pictures, but if they are happy with them, yay! they are cute, though--and the GIF is sweet (if a little odd). :) I wouldn't count on shooting their wedding, though, hun..

    1. Yes. I agree with this.
      Please for the love of everything good Jocee, take some advice,learn from this and quit assuming you are always right and that everyone else is "mean" or "jealous" or whatever.

      Delete
    2. i am taking this advice constructive criticism is a good thing, and i'm working on fixing the issue right now. and i'm not always right, but then, neither is anyone else. :)

    3. People! Leave Jocee alone, her photos are GORGEOUS!!! :-)

      Delete
    4. Ugh. Seriously, people? This is Jocee's blog where she takes Jocee's pictures that are absolutely precious and totally original. Things don't have to be perfect to be beautiful. These are signature and special and gorgeous. xo

  21. Ohmyword. One of the cuuuuutest couples I have ever seen! Young love is so beautiful. :] And by the way, I like how you edit your photos. I think you have a real talent at making a digital photo look film-y and grainy. :]

    ReplyDelete
  22. well. i for one absolutely love your style of shooting. you've got that originality that comes from capturing the raw and real of your subjects. you can just tell they're so in love through these photos. you use perfect up close angles. and heck, i love the grainy feel to these. keep up the beautiful work, girl x

  23. Hey girl, you are legit.
    Don't ever change for nobody.

  24. Constructive criticism may not be meant to be put in a way that makes the receiver of it feel bad, but sometimes that's what happens. That's why you have to be extremely careful with your words, that's when holding your tongue on some things comes in, and you have to let it go. I think constructive criticism is great! But when given the wrong way, it does absolutely nothing to construct, and instead demolishes.
    I see nothing wrong with your photos - I see the blur as intended, I see the grain as your own style. Maybe they're not some other popular blogger's photos, but they're yours, Jocee, and they're unique in the best way possible, and they're special, and they're beautiful.
    Why anonymous always strikes at you I don't know. But hold your head up, dear, because not everyone is going to like everything you do, and that's no reason at all to quit. :-)

  27. you get the most anon comments i've ever seen. :P but i love the way you respond to them! :) YEAH GIRL. and these pictures are amazing. don't let others critique your photos in a negative way. if YOU like them, that's what counts. :) xox

  28. I think.. whatever style YOU like is what you should shoot!
