Some of my favorite mommy daughter moments happen during bridal prep!
Shannon & Jake made all of my rose garden dreams come true for their PA engagement session.
The lighting in this room as Caitlin was getting ready was so stunning! Pretty getting ready photos is all about having great lighting to work with!
Well it’s officially 2020 wedding booking season over here which means MORE amazing love stories are on the way! When brides inquire with me I love asking them details about their love story. One of my favorite questions is how did he propose? From the sweet intimate romantic dinners for two, where they had their first kiss to the grooms that get all the friends & family involved! I love it all! 😍🙌
I feel like I've been a little MIA over here lately but I promise I have a good reason! Rob and I have spent most of this year apart because he was out to sea and has been flying to Navy schools around the country. But this week Rob had a little break in between his schedule before heading back. This week basically involved cleaning up our yard big time, cooking dinner together, Watching GOT, spending time with our puppies, and just trying to get as many little projects done before next month since after he's done with his school, we will get to spend a little time together before he meets his ship on deployment and will be gone for a while let’s just say.
I love when I get to meet my couples for destination engagement sessions! If I’m already traveling to a location and you would like to meet me there for your session, I’m all for it! Shooting at @vizcaya_museum in FL totally reminded me of when I lived in Italy!
The two biggest pieces of advice I ever received was to take the time to find good light and to think more like a film photographer, meaning slow down while shooting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This location has a lot of dark areas in the gardens and tons of casting color shadows but the moment I saw this patch of tan pebbles (aka natural reflectors) and there was access to the sky (not covered by trees) I knew this location would work! ... Since I started adding film into my business, Ive been trying to slow down as a digital shooter. Its so easy to become trigger happy and shoot multi shots for one pose but when you're shooting film you know its not only two dollars a click and you only get 16 frames per roll haha, but if you slow down and focus more on really making a connection with what you’re shooting you don’t need multi shots, you just need one which in the end it will only make you a better photographer.
