I had the privilege of mentoring a gorgeous gal who has an absolute passion for photography! We were able to shoot a stunning couple and we all definitely braved the cold! When I am hosting a mentor session I love to have them come in with lots of questions and let me know exactly what they are wanting to learn/leave with from the session! Amie wanted to learn how to shoot in harsh sun, so we set out at 2:00 and shot Brittney and Matt in an open field and boy was it freezing! The wind chill felt like -20 degrees but everyone were such sports. We then headed back to my office ordered some pizza, and went over editing, marketing, social media, and so much more! Rob even got some Q&A in!! 🙂
Be on the look out for this gal she is going to be amazing!
Below are some photos I captured while teaching and explaining lighting and posing!
Brides be sure to ask your photographer exactly how they feel about shooting at certain times and what they recommend as far as ceremony times and portrait times. Shooting in the harsh sun is definitely one of my least favorite things to do. You get squinty eyes, overexposed backgrounds, and it just isnt flattering to most. Be sure to go over your timeline with your photographer when deciding on times for the wedding!!!! An hour before sunset is the perfect time to get the most flattering photos and to get that gorgeous glow!
This photo was taken around 2:30 pm and was filled with harsh sun!! We learn to work around these conditions, and do out best to make everyone look gorgeous! 🙂
