Elopements are M A G I C. The amount of time I got to spend with these two taking pictures out on the rocks, in the backlit woods, along the shore, and against a twilight sky was something I wouldn't normally get with a full wedding day. ⠀ ⠀ Call me selfish but the more time I get to make photo magic with my couples, the more complete my heart feels at the end of the wedding! I love the people I get to work with so the more I can get, the better! ⠀
When the great outdoors wants to become the great indoors. Swipe for their wtf faces.
I call this one perfect timing on the dance floor. I heart you, too.⠀
I'm digging portraiture a lot lately and wanting to do more of it. Being in an element where the creativity just sparks left and right and the limitations of time are less confining, where there's an intimacy of being with one person and finding just the right way to photograph them where the light, mood, and scenery just feels so real to who they are down to the core has me spellbound.⠀ ⠀ Some of my favorite parts of a wedding day are the portraits. It's the quiet space of time where I get to steal the couple from the din of a busy wedding day and the love between them just glows all around and fills up the creative part of my heart. I light up during the portraits so finding the space to do more of that via portraiture with individuals (or couples!) is extremely alluring.⠀ ⠀ I've been talking with a few of my friends lately about making more art together and photographing people outside of the wedding day and it's got me all excited about what's to come. We've got some awesome plans we want to do and I can't wait for us to do them.⠀ ⠀ Oh, and this picture was from a day when I followed around one of the coolest girls in the world (Hey hey Abigail May 🏇🏻) as she tended to her horses and rode in the fields behind her home. I admire her so much and photographing her in her element, in the space where she comes most alive, was one of the greatest things ever. Portraits, I need more of you.⠀ ⠀
