I hope everyone is having a great Holiday season. I know I am! I always think I may get to take a break this time of year, but between wrapping up last minute orders, making sure my books are in order for the tax man, and getting ready for next year it seems I am even busier than usual. However, over the next few days I am going to make sure I take some time off to relax and hang out with family and friends.
This picture is one of my favorites from this year. The wedding was in July at the Brown-Pusey House, a really fantastic venue in Elizabethtown. It was time to the pictures of the wedding party I needed to get a shot of Jenny, the lovely bride, and her two adorable flower girls. These flower girls were real pros, by the way. This was already their fourth wedding of the year. This day they were both a little under the weather and their mom wanted to take them home for a nap before the ceremony started. We just had a few moments for a quick shot in the garden behind the house. It is always a challenge at weddings to get great shots that look both fresh and timeless, but I hope I did that here. I used a flash to overcome the sun because the light was very dappled under the trees. I had Jenny sit on the stairs and the two girls sit on either side and lean against her. They were all looking at me and I took a couple of shots, then I had Jenny interact with them; she looked down and I quickly got “the” shot. I knew right away we were done. They girls went for their nap and came back in time to be part of a wonderful ceremony.
