My Favorite Lens Cost $100

by Jason Hudson

The Nikon 50 f1.8 is STILL my favorite lens of all time. I love shooting "wide open" at f1.8. I believe this is the third copy of this lens I've had (due to losing the other two!). I purchased my latest one literally for $100. Now don't get me wrong, I still enjoy my $1600 24-70 and 70-200 lenses, but there's just something satisfying knowing I can make images that I enjoy with a $100 lens!

Here are a few examples taken on my walk this evening. Enjoy!

Northwest Arkansas Wedding and Bridal Photography: Quincy at Pratt Place Inn!

posted by Jason

Classic, timeless, traditional, formal, artistic, and creative. I really like to mix it up when it comes to my photography, and bridal portraits are no exception! Thanks to recent bride Quincy for being so amazing and just letting me "do my thing" for her bridal session at Pratt Place Inn!

Fayetteville, Arkansas Engagement of Haley + Nathaniel!

posted by Jason Hudson

I've got to be honest, this is one of my favorite engagement sessions. Possibly ever. When Haley and Nathaniel arrived at Lake Fayetteville, we became instant friends. They were so goofy yet so much in love, I really didn't even have to direct or "pose" them. I basically just pushed the button on this shoot. They were so fun to photograph! Let me know what you think!
