I could not wait to get home to upload this engagement session from Oak Mountain State Park in Birmingham, Alabama!
Usually, I promise my clients (I mean friends) a handful of sneak peeks - 4 or 5 images. But then I get home, and I eagerly upload them waiting for what seems like eternity (photogs, is it just me or has Lightroom acquired snail speed for some reason!??!), and then...... there they are. And I sit there, with a big goofy grin on my face while I try to narrow down a few favorites at first glance, and suddenly I'm editing way more than 4 or 5 quick photos.
But, I mean, HELLO, has Alabama ever looked so good?! I mean are we shooting this bride and groom in the PNW or in some castle ruins in Scotland?! Nope. No, this is Alabama on a gloriously gloomy, overcast day - just the way I like 'em!
PSA for all my clients/friends::
This is the year I will be confident enough to make you get weird with me. I mean, at least half as weird as me. I'm going to make you do things you may think look ridiculous, I'm going to make you get so close to your bride that it might as well be osmosis. I'm going to use prisms, and cell phones, and probably plastic bags and any other piece of trash I can pick up around us. We're gonna get weird, and we're gonna create some freaking MAGIC. Because that's what you are - you are magic, and I'm a frikkin' photo-wizard. (HARRY POTTER ALWAYS). Ugh. I can't freaking wait.
