During the holiday season, it is nearly impossible to find something red to photograph, right?


While I prefer green, the reds of the season lend a dramatic contrast to white snow, lush evergreens, and cold, dreamy blues!

I had planned my usual macros (see below), which are always fun to photograph and edit!

But by kismet and luck, my featured image below (also shared for Becky B’s timesquare) is my attempt at a wedding photo of our dear, next door neighbors who held their wedding in their backyard last week! My hubby thought I should take a couple of photos of them and have the image printed on canvas as a wedding gift.

Instead of purchasing other artists’ prints, I found this website to print my own images onto canvas or acrylic. In addition to this wedding photo, I had three of my favorites made into canvas prints to be framed (or not) and hung on my own walls. I use CanvasDiscount (no affiliate here, just a satisfied customer!).

It is doubtful I would explore wedding photography as a profession, but I am more than pleased at how this one turned out. At the time of this post, they have not yet received their surprise gift! They chose not to have a dedicated photographer at the wedding, so I was so glad to make this portrait of them!

Now for more reds!

Whether or not your image is holiday-themed, show us something red for Sunday Stills!

This post is my last Sunday Stills post of 2018! There is no challenge on December 30.

As I will be traveling extensively during the last week in December and first two weeks in January, Sunday Stills will be hosted by Hugh and Carol. More details on my Sunday Stills Page.

Thank you for a fabulous 2018 with Sunday Stills! I wish you Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all!

  2. Your wedding photo is lovely. I’m sure they will be thrilled when they receive it. You are right that red is everywhere at this time of year so finding reds is easy. Yours are great photos though. I don’t think I have ever seen Rudolph in this way before. Mine https://irenewaters19.com/2018/12/23/the-red-season-something-red-sunday-stills/
    Terri, I hope you and your family have a Happy Holiday Season and I wish you a New Year that sees you safe and well and hopefully seeing your New Year wishes come to fruition. See you next year.

  3. What a wonderful photo of your neighbours at their December wedding, Terri. Their faces beam happiness and joy.
    I’ll be trying to capture the red of Santa’s suit, and the red of Rudolph’s nose when they land on the roof tonight, Wish me luck. πŸŽ…
    I’m looking forward to hosting Sunday Stills in January. I promise to look after it all very well.
    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family, Terri. Have a great time. πŸŽ„

  4. Happy holidays, Terri. I hope you will have a fantastic time with your family in San Diego and an amazing start to your RV adventure. Your photos are spectacular, especially the wedding photo. Such a spontaneous image! I just hope your neighbors don’t read your blog, or the surprise is gone! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank, Liesbet. We’re having a nice, if somewhat busy time here. My neighbors got their canvas print on Monday, he texted me and was thrilled! We’re excited about hitting the road again on Friday…our drive down here from Sacramento was 12 hours of ridiculousness with traffic, surprising for a Saturday. The truck pulled the trailer like a champ with Hans doing all the driving. Have a happy new year, Liesbet.
