As the end of another long and fun season approaches, I find myself realizing I have a blog that hasn’t been updated in well, several months! I still have one wedding left for the 2013 wedding season, but as it draws to a close, I wanted to just remind myself and others out there that follow my blog, that I am still alive, and will be flooding this site with work from this year, that I simply haven’t had time to do this year. It becomes so difficult sometimes to just simply keep up! I could go into detail and tell you why things become so busy with basically having 2 days a week to get editing done with kids at home, and a crazy busy shooting schedule, but that would just bore you to tears, instead, enjoy this late fall engagement session with Marianne and Shane. Next year for me will be completely different and new in this industry, because both of my wonderful children will be in full time school which means I will have so much time on my hands midweek, I will have no excuse not to keep up with blogposts and my editing… in fact, I may even take on more work, just to fill the void of wondering what to do with my spare time.
I often don’t write much, if anything at all, alongside my posts, mostly because words just become numb talking about how amazing and how much fun I have with all of my clients, and also I don’t like writing more about one than the other, leaving some clients to think they weren’t that great if I didn’t write as much about them as the last couple.. and so on. However, seeing as it’s been so long since my post, I figure I’d write a little something about this couple!
More times than not, I end up being FB friends with my clients, and I see over the course of the year leading up to their wedding, numerous pictures of the happy couple in love. M/S are beyond the norm! Both of them are ridiculously creative, and if I didn’t know any better, would think that they have their own personal photographer shooting their lives as it unfolds. M has more images of her and S than I’ve ever seen on her FB, and not just random silly Iphone pics either.. they’re great and really show how truly happy and in love they really are. So when we talked about doing their engagement shoot, it simply had to be GREAT! I mean, how could I give them images that weren’t at least as good, if not better than what they already have?
We headed up north for a late fall shoot, inspired by the ‘country lovers’ inside of them both. I hate to say it, but the shoot for me was simply, easy! Ideas came from all of us, the sheer emotion you can see in the pics, was all THEM! I’m not going to lie here, some people really take some pruning and molding to get the right shot, or look.. not that they aren’t just as in love, or as happy, but being shot is foreign to them, and it might take a bit of work. M/S just fit together like puzzle pieces, I can’t remember a moment during the day where I felt as though I really needed to work with them to get a great look.. it just happened, time and time again. I could feel the happiness radiating from several feet away as I was shooting, and everything just fell into place and worked! If I showed you every single image I took that day, you would be delirious to say that they aren’t just the sweetest couple you’ve ever seen.
M/S… so looking forward to your wedding day in the summer of 2014, and in an attempt to be cliche.. it’s going to be an ‘epic’ wedding!
