As I was editing through the engagement session of Julie and Jason, I decided I would do a two part blog post. Part one has more of a romantic, vintage style feel to it, whereas the second part is very fun with bright colors, etc. Posting them all together would have just taken away from each other. So, problem solved.
The inspiration for this part of the shoot came from a picture of Julie's grandparents that she wanted to recreate. She's planning on displaying the two side by side at their reception as a surprise to her grandma - I can't wait to see it. Before we got to the location of the car, we had planned to take a few pics and be on our way to the next location. But when I saw the car + their outfits + the insane light, I knew we had go with it. We ended up spending the most amount of our time with these shots - I was loving what we were getting.
And Geoff? He was completely over the moon, as he got to shoot with our brand new 5D Mark II camera body. Every couple minutes we shot, he would shout, "oh my gosh......these are SO good...I can't believe this!". The three of us were laughing at him every time he would do it. He he had been shooting with a 40D up until this point, so what was coming straight out of the camera was quite a difference.
Here's what we came up with to recreate the shot:
Oh, and I forgot to mention that the day of our shoot BY FAR must have been the coldest of the year. Can't tell, can you?
Shooting in ultra cold weather can be a very good thing - the snuggling is a matter of survival!
What did I tell you about the insane light?!
Check back tomorrow for part two!
