Jordan and Stacie have been married for just over a year now, but were willing to model for me as I practiced some new poses and lighting techniques. During an actual wedding, there is never time to waste and I don’t want to take up a lot of the bride and grooms time trying something that may or may not turn out.
Lately I’ve been having this feeling that I am growing as a photographer. My portfolio is not the same as it was two years ago – or even one year ago. Which is good. I always want to learn, grown and become better. Jordan and Stacie were a huge help in this processes. Phil and I met them in St. Paul by Rice Park. There were hundreds of spots to photograph in the area which really let me explore and work in new environments. With Phil as my voice activated light stand we set out to capture and create images with a mix of ambient light and light from a flash. Up to this point, I have mainly photographed with available natural light.
With all that said, I am really happy with how images from this session turned out. Most of these images I believe are best when viewed large – like 30″x40″ large, but for now, here on the blog will do. Enjoy, and thanks to everyone who has helped me become the photographer I am today and who will keep working with me in the future as I strive to become even better. I cannot say it enough to you – Stacie and Jordan – THANK YOU!
