Love is in the Air

Taking photographs of a couple in love is special!  I was contacted by the future bride who I’ve met once to take engagement photos for she and her fiance.  I post my favorite photographs from my shoots to Facebook and we’re Facebook friends, so I guess my marketing is paying off.  Taking the back roads, I drove 40 minutes to her parents’ place in the Country.  We drove around in their golf cart looking for nice photo opportunities.


When I met her three years ago, she was quite the Tom Boy, but now with the look of love written on her face, I definitely see her girlie side!


One of my favorite things to do after taking the photos, is the editing process within Lightroom.  I taught myself how to use it, and know there’s much more to learn, but it’s fun to see how changing the contrast, clarity, colors, etc. can change the feel of a photo.


I took a photo from this angle of both of them lying down and it was her idea to lean over him…so cute!  I approach the session as a collaborative process.


Most of my sessions are somewhere new each time, so I work with what I’ve got.  In this shot, I would’ve preferred it to be taken in an empty field, but the sparse tree behind her back almost looks like a veil…


Last night, after organizing for Bob, the elderly gentleman I’ve mentioned, I went down to the dining room of his retirement home to have dinner with him.  We’re gradually getting to know each other better.  I received a phone call from an elderly lady last night, who was referred to me by Bob, to help her declutter.  I’m so happy to be doing the things I love!

  1. The part I enjoy about your posts is you capture the inner qualities, along with the beautiful exteriors. Your telling us how she has grown up and is not a tomboy any more, that makes this special! People in love certainly are ones that should be captured by your lens. You are amazing, Sherry!


I'd love to hear what you have to say
