One of the most important parts to any shoot, aside from a beautiful couple or an adorable family, is the location! Creating a story, a theme, something that you can play with and work off of during a session is key to every part of being a lifestyle wedding and portrait photographer. So if you didn’t guess I spend quite a bit of time location scouting. No lie, I enjoy it quite a bit, exploring new areas, places that have been undiscovered. But each time there’s a new location, it must be tested, on a model, a friend, anyone in sight really.
This time though, I had the amazing opportunity to work with Ali and Shelly, a few models out of Illinois. They were in the area and we planned a little session at a nearby lake I found just a few days back. The images came out stunning and you can bet I’ll be using this location for a future engagement session or family session soon enough 🙂
