Early New Years resolution – blog weddings on a regular basis. I’m not sure why it seems to be such an issue (ha), but I’ll work on it. One possibility behind the psychology of not blogging weddings is in the details. Details… if you visit the wedding blogs out there, they are so heavily detail oriented and I’m just not. I’m people oriented. I shoot the details while I am at a wedding, however; I focus on the people and the moments they share together. Whether it is the session alone with the bride and groom, the mother/son dance, or even the engagement session… I photograph people. It’s what I love.
Here’s my typical blog bomb of images. You’re welcome, and I’m sorry 🙂
so much more after the jump…
I have been anxious to blog about this session, but I had to wait until the prints were delivered… this was a surprise session. This shoot with Lauren is one of two surprise sessions I have to blog about in the coming weeks.
Lauren wanted something nice to give her boyfriend for their one-year anniversary, and his request was for some nice pictures of her that he could have… and can I say I am pretty happy that was his choice? She wanted a location that felt very “them,” and that meant one thing. Camp Harlow. They have both spent time at the camp, and it is full of interesting locations and variety of “looks.” If you have kids, or are high school aged, you should look into Harlow… it really is a blast.
One of my brides, Krista, joined us on the shoot, partly because they are friends, and partly because I do not shoot alone with girls/women. It’s just a good practice to have in place to protect yourself, but also to protect the reputation of your subject. Call me old fashioned, call me whatever you want, it’s just what I do. Getting back to the shoot – you may have seen Krista on my website before… look here for a reminder.
Krista and Lauren are quite the fun pair, Lauren has a very fun personality, and Harlow is nothing but fun. Hopefully the fun shows in the images. I had a great time shooting them, and thankfully, the boyfriend loved them, so, double bonus.
