September seems to be ending before I even realized it got started in some ways! Here’s how I know: Each month I’ve been changing the background of my iphone screen to list out my goals for the month. A little weird maybe, but it keeps them fresh in my mind and I’m able to focus on them every day since I’m always seeing them. Sadly, I still haven’t changed the background for September! I realized this a few days ago. In my head it was still around the first week or so of the month, so I should still have had plenty of time to focus on September goals. Then I realized the real date. Guess I’ll just have to get a jump start on October goals now!
In the meantime, I’ve been out shooting a lot of weddings and engagements. With the great weather, it’s that time of year for sure! There were plenty of great images to pick as my favorites this month, but a top candidate has surfaced. Here’s what I chose:
So why did I choose it? Color, light, intimacy. This photo has all of it. I love the way the light glows as it starts to set, and as it peeks through the trees it gives this gorgeous rim lighting on Sarah and Aaron’s faces that make them look like they are glowing too. I love the color of it. Everyone looks good in shades of blue, and blues pair so well with anything in nature. And can I just say Sarah’s red hair is amazing? The way it pops in contrast to the green trees is even better. Lastly, this image just has such an intimate feel the way it peeks through the leaves and branches for focus on Sarah and Aaron. That moment before a kiss, eyes closed, and so into each other. I love it!
