One of the many things I love about photography is the learning opportunities. There is always a new lighting technique or something else to learn. This year I have made it my mission to conquer the world of off camera flash. I bought myself some new strobe lights and have been experimenting all winter. My photography bag is now a wagon. LOL! Bringing lights, light stands, props, and my camera lenses and gear is not a small feat. However the results are spectacular!
One of my my favorite quotes about sisters and one I believe truly captures the essences of this photograph.
"When traveling life’s journey
it’s good to have a
sister’s hand to hold on to.”
These two sisters are so sweet. I could tell by the way they interacted with each other how much love and respect they have for one another. Having fun, making each other laugh. I was so honored to be able to provide photos to capture their relationship during their teen years. The relationship between them is so sweet and they brought their smiles.
I love the way my new light modifier adds the perfect little catch lights in their eyes and provides such flattering light without looking unnatural.
Wedding days can be full of shenanigans. That is just one of the things I love so much about them. I love the silliness, the fact that everyone looks absolutely amazing, the excitement, the sentimental moments both large and small.
That is one of the reasons that I got so excited to travel from Happy Valley to photograph the wedding of Tim and Sarah at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Course. I had already gotten to know both the bride and groom in our consultations. I saw how in love they are and how relaxed and laid back they were.
It is truly an honor and a delight to be part of a day so full of joy. Just one more reason that I love my job!
