I couldn’t love this session any more than I do! I styled it based on color. Color theory is something that is fascinating to me and I have gotten very interested in trying to pack a visual punch through utilizing color in my sessions. But that’s definitely not the only reason I love this couple’s session. Gabby and Mekenzie were wonderful and enthusiastic! It helps that they are totally smitten with one another and I think it translates in the photos. Remember, LOVE WINS; it seems to be the one emotion that even if you try, you can’t stop it. And frankly, why would you want to? I am proud to call myself a Birmingham LGBT photographer! We started our session near the Birmingham Museum of Art because there is a gorgeous yellow, rusty wall. It’s perplexing because it certainly appears to be cement, but the color looks like rusted metal. Whatever the case, I was drawn to it and since this session, I’ve been back one other time to photograph a bride. I’m hooked!
After we photographed in our first location, we drove to a second, more natural setting. I love having the time to mix up the settings (Session A allows for 2 locations). We shot straight to sunset-pulled the last ounces of light out of the sky and created some interesting portraits. (And there’s no hidden meaning there in the word “interesting;” that’s my way of saying “awesome!”)
