Photo Talk: V-Day and Assignment #1

Well Happy Valentine's Day! Hope your day is lovely. Eli fell asleep again this morning which is working out nicely since he was up early has spent the entire morning mostly crying.

I am taking an online class with a friend and fellow photog Brooke Snow. And I need to post my assignment today.... so here it is!

I was to preplan a shoot (and I had a wedding coming up in Cardston on this past weekend) so I used that shoot for my assignment and post my three favorite images. Well all my preplanning kind of go thrown out the window since the weather was HORRIBLE! Seriously it was the worst wedding weather I have ever shot in!!! We used it for our advantage....
Wind blown
and then changed our plan and found some places indoor to shoot in. Pizzas and Cream in Cardston
Tristie
and then the Lethbridge Lodge hotel in Lethbridge. We thought we were done and then I noticed the staircase and the mirrors and wanted to try something in here and I really like it!
Tristie and Parker

The whole thing made me think I should know more places indoor to shoot for when the weather turns bad! And good thing that I had thought of shots that I wanted ahead of time too!

Oh, that was a terrible day - I forgot that you were shooting a wedding - ACK. LOVE the "blown away" shot however!

You should really check out Country Blooms greenhouse (just out of town towards Coaldale) - seriously, such a pretty place!

Yes I get a connection instantly to the first image. It reminds me of a picture you might find in a box when your old and gray.

Love the image in the crazy weather conditions.

Good heavens! If that is the kind of work you can produce when the weather is crappy and all your plans go out the window, then I would wish for crappy weather all the time! :) Nice job, beautiful shots!!!

I love the first shot. The color and the movement of her dress against the background is insane. This is a gorgeous couple and they are awesome shots!

Oh wow, the weather this weekend was terrible. But that first picture is awesome!
