To say Alex, my May 2011 bride is gorgeous, is an understatment. As a Raleigh Wedding Photographer, one dreams of having such trusting and beautiful clients such as Alex, an NC State pending graduate. Everything with her when it came to our photo session was easy. She needed very little guidance outside of my vision on posing. And nevermind the fact she probably would’ve stood on her head for the images I was requesting of her.
Our session started out at Historic Oakview Park in Raleigh, NC. Being that she’s getting married on her parents’ homestead in Lumberton, she opted for a more country and pastoral setting. I shoot frequently at the registered historic Raleigh park so I’ve come somewhat familiar with the ‘where to’ shoot scenario’s. However, my clients know me better then that as I don’t like settling for what I’ve already shot, but rather taking it to the next level so every client’s session is something different, that I’m giving them my art and artistic vision.
It was in me that day to take it a step further. At the beginning of the session I had broached the idea of taking the session to the field behind my home in Clayton. I’ve been watching it for a few weeks. The taller grasses and how the light captured them at different times of the day. Upon suggestion of shooting there, Alex was game. The rest is history. Her session was completed with some early sunset magic.
