I’ve so not been keeping up with posting on social media lately… I have been shooting a lot, and I’ve also been trying to be more present in my non-work life... Which means something has got to give. And that something is social media. I am encouraging everyone to join me in spending more family time and less screen time for the remainder of the summer ◡̈
THIS. This is why I cannot stress enough to PUT DOWN YOUR PHONE AND LIVE IN THE MOMENT. I was able to capture this amazing shot of the groom watching as his new wife danced with her dad. It wouldn’t have been the same with a phone in front of his face. (And FYI people, that squinty face you make when you’re living vicariously through your phone screen is NOT attractive.) You make the memories, and I’ll make the photos. K?
I love this. With bigger / more formal weddings, I can’t always capture the faces of your families. Churches have a lot of rules, which I am respectful of. I also never want to be a distraction to your guests, because it’s not about me. It’s about you, and that’s where the focus should be. But elopements and casual, small weddings allow me the to flexibility to move around and document unnoticed.
I can def get on board with more morning elopements! Shannon + Derek got the perfect July morning with beautiful light. Flowers by the spectacular @flowersandweeds // Hair + Makeup by @emilymillermakeupartist // Dress + earrings from @bhldn
