be picky about who their wedding photographer is going to be…. it would be the WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS! I was super selective when choosing our photographer and to be honest… if Jstar didn’t work out… I really didn’t have a backup plan!! So, the scariest thing about shooting other photographer’s weddings is that they KNOW the ropes and there is an extra added pressure to be super-duper (yes, I just said that) creative and on point with my exposures. It’s a little intimidating at times but to be honest, I love it and it’s good for me! The BEST part about shooting other photographer’s weddings is that the bride and I usually think the exact same way. We love details, we love good light, we think about the lighting when we’re planning our timeline… the list goes on and on! When Rebecca and I were emailing about their session, she mentioned a few details she was planning but OH MY WORD…. I had no idea! This girl is just wonderful! Seriously! It’s one thing to have a few props… but she had multiple STATIONS full of cute details that made their session super fun to shoot! I could have doubled their session time if we had had the light! We shot the second half of their session on Hunter’s family’s property in the mountains outside of Staunton, VA. As we drove to the top of the hill where his house was… I’m pretty sure I was being completely obnoxious. I just kept saying “Oh my gosh! This is beautiful! You wake up to this?!”. Hunter simply replied with a “Yup”. I was blown away. You’ll see a view from their front porch further along in the post and I’m pretty sure you’ll agree that it is breathtaking!
Now that I’ve rambled on and on about mountains and details, let me explain that this couple is amazing. This was their first time in front of the camera and they acted like pros! I loved every minute of our time together and I really cannot WAIT for their wedding next year! Enjoy some of my favorites and leave these two some comment love and tell Becca just how stinking creative she is!! I warned her that details and Pinterest may consume her life until the wedding! (I know from experience!) I’m so so excited to see everything come together! Becca and Hunter, enjoy being engaged and make sure to make time for one another in between tying ribbon and cutting bunting:)
Really?! Love them! They make it look so easy!
Can we all agree that their children will have PERFECT smiles? Gosh.
