Sometimes the light is ‘good enough.’ Sometimes it’s decent. Sometimes it’s terrible—which means I’m using my own lighting. In all of those situations, I’m limited by the light in some way.
And sometimes it’s ridiculously amazing. Case in point, Rachiah & Andy’s ‘save the date’ photos. It seemed like no matter where I turned my camera, the light was perfect. Take a look for yourself.
It doesn’t hurt that Rachiah & Andy are so sweet together & didn’t stop smiling at each other the entire time. Basically, this was about the easiest time I’ve ever had taking pictures.
Just had to add, just like usual, I didn’t use ANY Photoshop in editing these photos.
These next 2 photos are an example of what perfect light is capable of. I’ve seen photographers use all kinds of Photoshop tricks to make eyes & skin look this amazing. Perfectly soft skin & eyes that explode off the page—all done in camera. Believe me, you can ask Andy & Rachiah, it stopped me mid shoot to focus on Rachiah’s beautiful eyes.

Here’s a recent engagement session with a twist. Kailin & Bret brought their puppies (yup, those are puppies) aka camera hogs along. We had a blast watching them play in the park. Believe me, that’s a lot of still-clumsy great dane flying around. After that we cleaned them up & put them away, we went back to the park for a few childless pictures. Not quite as fun, but a little easier. :) Can’t wait for their winter wonderland wedding next month at Schweitzer Mountain!
