Spring is so close I can feel it. I’ve been waiting for it like waiting for water to boil. It seems like this winter has been going by SO SLOW and I know it’s wrong to wish away the time but as a photographer who shoots primarily outside, I can’t help but wish for warmer weather. Since the weather has been getting nice outside, I’ve been scheduling sessions like crazy. I’m so excited to finally get in the swing of things. I’ve enjoy the time off and sleeping in but I’m ready for the wedding season to begin.
Meet Justin and Yvonne. They are an amazing couple who will be getting married in May. I worked with Yvonne’s mother for almost 10 years so when she contacted me to see about wedding packages and if I was available I was thrilled. I couldn’t wait to get talking with Yvonne about her wedding day and schedule her engagement session. She really didn’t have any ideas for locations for the session so I suggested we take pictures in Du Quoin at the fairgrounds, more specifically the horse stables. Yvonne loves horses (I didn’t know that till today) so it turned out to be a perfect spot. When I pulled up I was excited because morning light is beautiful and it went well with the rustic wood of the stables. You can’t get this kind of light in the middle of summer. Each season has it’s own pros/cons and winter light is by far my favorite.
I had so much fun this morning taking Justin and Yvonne’s engagement photos. I can’t believe that May is just around the corner and I’ll be taking pictures on one of the most important day of their lives. Until then, have fun looking through my favorites from their engagement session and check back in May for their wedding blog post.
