just a bride, in the creek, you know, a typical Saturday

Here I am again, up entirely way too late. Surprising, actually, because I was utterly sleepy all afternoon and evening. Must be that coffee I grabbed when we got the kids ice cream.

This morning I had the opportunity to work with a gorgeous model. She donned an almost-vintagey wedding dress and flower crown and we headed to a beautiful location… a creek! Not the typical type around here, either, full of mud and what not, this one was just breathtaking, rock bottom and crystal clear water, complete with a great view of downstream. The rock is what makes up the bank, too, so it can be a bit overwhelming if you don’t get the right angles.

Took my son with me, his first time to really be paid as an assistant and he did pretty well. I mostly needed a pack mule but he was helpful in other ways, too. One of these days I’ll start actually teaching him photography.

The weather ended up being just perfect, too. It was raining all night and all morning where we live but the location had a window where the weathermen were calling for only 5% rain and it was just timed perfectly. I couldn’t have asked for better, especially after the horribly humid day we had yesterday. The rain, I guess, washed some of that humidity away. I actually got cold and was utterly chilled to the bone by the time we got home. I hopped right in the shower to clean off and warm up!

I’ve posted one preview so far and it’s gotten some great reviews and interaction. I’m pretty proud of it myself. I’m always improving and this year I’ve spent a lot of time learning about editing. Photography skills all being equal, your editing will make or break you.

I’m looking forward to going through the rest of the images but it’s going to have to wait until I design and order a client wedding album. Then we shall see! :)
