August is such a weird month. Sometimes it’s busy for me and other times it’s a slower time to regroup and relax. This year it was a little of both, but with September arriving tomorrow I’m also looking forward to the change of season. Boots, sweaters, fuzzy blankets. I’m ready. Not ever really ready for winter, but I do like the fall!
With the end of another month though, it’s time for me to look back and pick my favorite photo from the last 30 days of weddings and engagements. This one really stood out to me after seeing it for the first time, and it’s possibly one of my new favorites ever!
So why did I pick it? To me this just feels like what a couple in love should look like – content, snuggled up, relaxed, and connected. It’s a simply pose but the moment feels real and authentic. More creatively I love that their classic black and white attire is contrasted by the soft pink blooms of the landscape around them. They are the focus though, not their environment.
So did I make the right choice? Check out more of Joan and Jim’s wedding at Hillsborough Vineyards, and in case you missed anything on the blog, here is a quick recap of my posts from the past month:
