LET YOUR ART GUIDE YOU ~ WEEK 12 ~




All photographs are there to remind us of what we forget. In this - as in other ways - they are the opposite of paintings. Paintings record what the painter remembers. Because each one of us forgets different things, a photo more than a painting may change its meaning according to who is looking at it. ~John Berger

I just think it's important to be direct and honest with people about why you're photographing them and what you're doing. After all, you are taking some of their soul. ~Mary Ellen Mark

12 weeks...amazing!

This is fantastic that we have stuck in there this long and accomplished so much already. I promised photos of the bridal shoot and so I don't disappoint, I will show them for my art today. Taking pictures and then editing, really is an art. More than I had ever realized, and one that I thoroughly enjoy.

Here are some of the 70 shots I took and edited for this beautiful bride.

















The bride and groom's theme for their wedding is "The Perfect Pair".



I was spoiled with such a beautiful bride to photograph and it was a joy taking these photos.

Here is a sneak peak of the bridal shower I also photographed.

BTW - I'm totally stealing your picture frame prop idea. Thank you! And it's funny about the balloon pics...last night as I was falling asleep, I kept envisioning a red balloon and a red lollipop in my head for the shoot...

Wow Emily, these are BEAUTIFUL! You're right about the gorgeous bride, but also, your way of capturing her is very romantic and adds a touch of something special. I#m sure there will be more weddings for you to photograph soon :)
