There is a difference between shooting because you have to and shooting because you LOVE to. Me? I shoot because I love to. It’s my passion and feeds my soul. Fortunately, I seem to work with couples who understand this and are willing to indulge me! You know what I love more than anything? A couple who is madly in love and willing to do whatever I suggest! (Yes, I can be a bit of a control freak. My poor, dear husband!) When I spoke with Kim about what I had in mind for this session, she told me I was free to do whatever I wanted. Kim is also a photographer (and an extremely talented one!) and understood my insane desire to shoot these images the way I’d envisioned. We discussed the outcome a bit and talked about styling and what we wanted to bring into the scene. What I wanted to showcase here was that wedding formals don’t have to be traditional to be beautiful! Also, by making sure to set aside enough time for your photos, we can sneak away from the craziness of the day and focus on what’s most important, you! We shot this as a “day after session.” I love those. The nerves have died down, you’ve had a beautiful day to celebrate the coming together of your lives and the day after your wedding, you’re still on a love high!
Are you still with me? I tend to ramble! I won’t bore you with words any longer. Here are the images we captured on one of the very last sunny evenings we had here in the Portland/Vancouver area before our 7 months of solid rain moved in!
Kim, thank you! Enjoy!
