Bridals

Our wireless router has been on the fritz so I've had limited internet access thus the lack of posts, but life definitely had not been so limited... A couple weeks ago I took out my life-long friend, Laura, for her bridal pictures. This'll be the first wedding I've ever done professionally, what an adventure! I had a lot of fun, but I was also really frustrated cause my mind would draw a blank whenever I'd want to set up another pose. I was so worried that we'd spend all this time & have just one pose... how boring, but when I got looking through them, in the end I had used most of the poses that I had visualized in my mind after all! I was frustrated with the setting sun in combination with the overcast skies, it put a rush on the whole session. A photographer friend suggested still using the flash to pick up the "sparkle" in the person's eyes, but I mostly forgot that tip as I was struggling to capture the best light... that may have made a huge difference?? So there was a lot to learn from this photo shoot, but in the end I was very satisfied that I was able to create my dear friend with some great photos that didn't look as though her amateur photographer-friend took them! So here are some of my favorites, I hope you all enjoy!

Tami, you did a fantastic job! I especially love the one where she is looking out over the field of sunflowers. Just beautiful! :)
