Sarah here on a wild Oklahoma Snow day! Thought I would bring something a bit sunnier for you to look at. And not only the glow of sunset but the magic of a cotton field! Who knew Oklahoma had cotton… Okay I am sure a lot of people but I am from North Carolina where cotton is a huge crop and had no idea it existed here. But what a treat! I had so much fun with these two. They could not be any sweeter together. They are getting married right before Christmas so we squeezed in their engagement session before the crazy cold arrived! Although I will say you can’t tell at all but these two were quite the troopers and it got really cold about half way through our shoot. Can’t wait for their wedding!
Taylor here on this beautiful Wednesday afternoon. Kathryn and Josh randomly chose a gorgeous night for their session. I say random, because these two are individually traveling all over this semester interviewing for their residency programs. So we had a select few days scattered throughout November that worked for them. Josh is looking for a Orthodontics program and Kathryn will be headed into a Gynecology program. Needless to say, these two are super smart and obviously very driven. I’m excited to see where they end up. They are super hopeful that they will be getting into programs in the same city or at least very close to each other, but they seem pretty laid back about it all. Knowing that it will all work out. It was fun exploring some new locations with these two. Thanks for being flexible!
Sarah here… and here goes nothing…
Something I have thought about doing forever and talked about doing dozens of times but in some ways haven’t had the guts to do. Don’t worry its not that crazy, but to the blog stalker of all things photography it could be offensive (how is that for drama). I am about to “blog” an engagement session and only post one photo. But its not because there aren’t dozens of photos from this session worth sharing.. And not because Ryane and Justin aren’t the cutest and sweetest couple with a genuine connection. Because they certainly ARE! Instead, it’s in protest of how poorly most of us are digesting the images in front of us. How quickly we skim over the art of photography because it is everywhere and in our face in abundance. We have stopped giving weight to the individual photo. I think we are over stimulated and over saturated with images in our lives that we can’t/don’t pause and take in the beauty of just one photo. I am so struck by the way art changes the minute you take it out of the gallery… We stop giving space to each image, we certaintly don’t spotlight it individually and let it breath apart from the others on the wall. We slam dozens and dozens of photos down our throats through facebook, instagram, blogs, websites,etc. and I am afraid we are ceasing to appreciate the thing we “love”. Oh and I am definitely talking about me as much as anyone else. We as the photographers consume thousands upon thousands of images a year (and those are just our own) and that is why I am making myself pause with you to take in the beauty that is Ryane and Justin in just one quiet black and white image from their whole session. Because it is worth stopping and staring. That is if you made it through my soapbox to the image… (Don’t worry, this too shall pass and I will be back to posting loads of images that you will pause individually at to appreciate) :)
I had a fantastic time getting to know Brittany and Rob at their engagement session last week. The weather was awesome, they chose the perfect coordinating outfits, their love for each other was easy and happy and it always reminds me of how lucky I am to call this job, work. So after all of that perfection.. we stumbled upon…
A COTTON FIELD… yep, a cotton field, and it was kind of my favorite…
It’s Taylor again… I’ve had some beautiful engagement sessions lately, so I have been eager to blog them before this fall weather turns COLD.
Hillary and Will were so much fun to photograph. They were always laughing and talking to each other. Will was so easy going, willing to do whatever I told him to do and Hillary was just talkative and fun!
We had to reschedule because of a rainy day, but the night we choose to do it, turned out to be beautiful! Although we did end up walking through a field full of stickers, sorry Hillary. Thanks again for being flexible.
