Oh man, these two… They are SO in love, and so darn sweet to be around. I just had the pleasure of photographing their wedding, but until I have a chance to edit their images, I will tie us over with some faves from their first look and bridal session.
We drove up to a friend’s property in Alamo so we could have a more rustic backdrop. It was an especially overcast day, and for a bit I was worried we would be rained out. But the rain stayed at bay and we were able to not only shoot a bit out in the open, but we also got an awesome sunset at the end of their session!
I love the way these two look at each other, and how they laugh together, which in my opinion is the key to a long and happy marriage. These two, with the way they make each other laugh, are gonna be great together.
I’ve started dabbling in a little video lately, and what I mean by dabbling, is that I’ve now put my camera into video mode a total of four times ha! I wanted to practice some more, and so I shot a little video for these two during their portrait session. I’ll say first, shooting still images and video simultaneously is HARD! Well, at least this first go was! I made SO many mistakes, including not re-checking my focus after I moved the groom for the first look shots. And I have a very unsteady hand when not on a tripod, and when on the tripod my pans are not very smooth…. Oh, and I have no editing software so I’ve strung it together in Lightroom! Like I said, not very good at this yet, but I sure appreciated the practice! I’ll share it with you because, hopefully, the fact that these two are so darn cute will help you overlook my flaws.
And be sure to check back in a couple weeks for their wedding day photos! Man they had a great group of people at the Temple with them, and one of the cutest receptions I’ve seen!
