Natasha and Josh are getting married this summer in Iowa. Whoever their lucky photographer is, he is going to have a fabulous time with them! I really wish I could be at the wedding---hey Natasha and Josh, can I get an invite??!! You probably think I'm kidding! But I think it would be awesome to go to a wedding in Iowa in the summer! A long summer day in a place I have always assumed is gorgeous! And I would so love to see Natasha in her wedding dress---she described it and it sounded so beautiful. :)
(I've only been to Iowa once and it was night----my friend and I were driving through on the way to Chicago and we kept on stopping at motels and every one we went to was fully occupied. There was some huge convention going on and there was no where to stay! We were exhausted but we just kept driving and the sun was coming up as we were getting into Illinois.)
Natasha wanted to get engagement photos here in Arizona and searched for a photographer. She came across our blog and website and emailed me about meeting up for photos. I'm so glad she did, because we had such a fun time with them. It was such a gorgeous day with amazing sunshine, since it had rained the day before. Thanks Natasha and Josh! I hope you guys have a wonderful wedding this summer!
I used my last polaroid on these two! And was glad to do it. Someday I'll get more. :)
I've posted this one before but I wanted to see how it went along with the others. I really, really, really want to do more night photography like this. Night photography like this takes long exposures, meaning we keep the camera aperture open for a few seconds to even longer, like half a minute, so our subjects have to stay frozen still for a while. In this image, Josh moved the flashlight in a heart shape for about 8 seconds and otherwise stayed perfectly still, as did Natasha. Good job, guys!
