It has been two years since I have published a blog post. It needs to change and I'm making an effort to get back into consistently blogging. There's so much that I will be showcasing over the course of the next few weeks that I'm excited to be sharing them with you!
Check out a sneak peek of this lovely engagement session with Shayne and Margarita!
Okay, I am REALLY excited about posting this blog! Why?
1. It's the first engagement session that I have shot since I upgraded from the Canon t2i to the Canon 6d.
2. Travis and Laura are AWESOME!
3. I love cloudy sessions!
Laura contacted me a few weeks ago after searching around for a photographer for her and Travis' wedding next year. We talked for a bit and figured that we were definitely going to be a great fit! The days leading up to our session were definitely nerve wrecking as it had been raining so much and it was also forecasted for rain the day of. I cannot tell you how many times I have checked the weather to see if anything would change. Luckily, it did a bit as it rained the morning of (and for a little bit during our session). But for the most part it was very cloudy and for the most part not raining.
We went to Pony Pasture in Richmond and really utilized the amazing river view, but also the great trails surrounding the James. Travis and Laura are definitely one of the sweetest couples that I have met. They are so down to earth and obviously super photogenic!
Anyways, I'll stop rambling and show you some of my favorites from the day!
Travis and Laura, I had an amazing time and I can't wait until your wedding! =)
Check out a sneak peek of my session with Michelle over the weekend!
Nine more days left until I am finished this challenge! Exciting! It's one of those bittersweet moments because I am glad to be finishing, but on the other hand I'm not all that excited about it. The interesting thing is that now I understand the importance of taking a picture every single day. It prevents me from being lazy, especially when I need to blog about it. I wanted to start another challenge, which I did have a blog for a self portrait challenge. But I'm not sure that I'm going to actually do it for 30 days. I think maybe bi weekly or a monthly self portrait would ease me in a bit more at an even pace. ;)
Anyways, day 21 is texture.
Texture Photography is relatively self explanatory. It attracts your eye to basically see texture. We know of texture to come in multiple forms. Smooth, bumpy, patterns, etc.
I took this picture on a brick wall not far from home.
