Warning- boring photographer post ahead 🙂
A good wedding photographer, or just any professional for that matter, never stops learning. My journey into photography began 11 years ago, and it’s been my sole profession this entire time, but I still feel like a student of the arts. Still, that’s one of the things I love most about photography, because every day I have the opportunity to learn something new, a cool technique, editing trick, lighting setup, pose, prompt, or something new about the wedding industry that I can use to give my clients a better experience.
I’m always growing.
More than anything, my editing style has evolved so much in the last 3 years. I spent a lot of time -and money 🙂 – learning from the top photographers in our industry. I’ve watched hundreds of hours worth of webinars and classes and invested weeks and months in learning more about Lightroom and Photoshop. I love light and airy photos, they make me feel inspired and happy. But, contrary to popular belief, it’s not just cranking up the exposure or brightness. There’s so many technical elements that we have to consider to achieve this look.
So it’s been awhile since Jessica and Cale were married in a romantic winter ceremony, surrounded by the pines and evergreens. I blogged their wedding awhile back, but with the coronavirus preventing us from safely photographing new sessions, I’ve had the chance to go back and re-edit some of my earlier work. I’m just in love with these now.
Here are a few favorites!
