I am very much looking forward to photographing Megan and Travis’ wedding next year at St. Patrick’s Basilica and the Sergeant and Warrant Officer’s mess in Ottawa. They liked to go on road trips when they first started dating, so we wanted to bring the spontaneity of pulling off at a random, scenic location into the shoot.
When Megan spontaneously jumped into Travis’ arms while they were standing on the rocks I thought they were both going into the water. He gave me the ‘holy shit’ look right before she leaped; it’s a good thing he does his sit-ups.
Here at Blair Gable Photography we just don’t take pictures of people in meadow’s at dusk, sometimes we stand in the middle of rivers. Katelyn and Ben are a great couple who’s wedding I will have the pleasure of photographing next year and we headed out into the county for their engagement shoot. The first attempt was ended when a massive thunderstorm rolled into town, the second time we nailed it – the light was perfect. The only problem was that we had to hop across slick river rocks to get to it! Despite wearing heeled boots, Katelyn took it all in stride.
Just because I ripped on the idea of shoot an engagement session in a meadow at dusk (as seen here) doesn’t mean that I can’t just turn around and do that very thing the very next week. At least now I know why photographer constantly do it, because it is probably the most perfect time to do anything anywhere! Once again I was shooting Kaitlin and Keith and even though we left the cheese curds and gravy at home, there was still plenty of love to go around. I am very much looking forward to their wedding at Saunder’s Farm next year!
Just a heads up that I am going to start doing everything in a meadow at dusk from now on – except engagement sessions that is.
If you didn’t see them the first time, check out my first gravy, cheese and love filled session with Kaitlin and Keith here!
