Literally, I’m counting down the days until I start shooting on a much more regular basis, I’m so happy we’re emerging out of a very gray and dark winter. I even saw sun today in my apartment, and that sure puts me in a good mood! I’m putting together this blog post to show some of my clients what can be possible in the tail end of winter and the beginning of spring. A lot of people have told me in my meetings, “surely your portfolio must all be based in the summer to get those colors!” That’s not entirely true, I shoot plenty of weddings and engagement sessions in the spring, though I will agree that it’s easier to get vibrant colors in summer and the autumn and you have less chance of rain. Nevertheless, the reason why I like spring shoots is all the signs of life – short grass sprouting out of the ground, buds on the branches, and seeing all of that really gives me energy to be super-creative, it is a true awakening. And of course, if you have good light, a good location, magic happens! In the end it’s still about seeing (and sometimes creating) the right light
This was a wedding I did last year in the Boston Public Garden in the end of March – we stayed away from shooting the pond because there was no water, so I focused on bringing out the bright greens of the trees.
The bride was cold but she did not look it in the photos!
