Cut like a knife.

Love is definitely in the air this week.
So thick I could cut it with a knife.

I've always thought Carol and Allen were adorable. And I wish I could take credit, as the photographer, for their cuteness, but I can't.

And I always thought Carol was a beautiful woman too, but I was literally stricken by her on this day. She glowed, and her eyes were an almost unnatural, beautiful shade of blue. I thought about it later as I looked at the photographs. Finally I realized what it was. She was with the man she loves. Barefoot. In the grass. In the warm sun.
And he makes her feel beautiful.
And it showed.

I started my first day of Wedding photography at school today. We did engagement sessions. I really enjoyed the couple we worked with, Matt and Mandy. I felt rushed because I only had thirty minutes with them, plus three other classmates were there to watch me work until it was their turn to shoot. But none the less it was good practice, because I need to work under pressure and get ready for the "real world." :)


  1. Hailey,
    Really nice environmental poses! I like the way you've blended color, sepia and B&W to give different emotional tones to the images. Are these your "engagement" pictures? Will we see full wedding dress and tux pictures later? I'm very interested in seeing a wedding through your camera.

  2. Good job. We shot them in modern studio. Can't wait to see more.

  3. not only does that song rock, but is bryan adams insanely hot or is it just me??? awesome pics hailey, both couples look relaxed and at ease. not bad for day one...

  4. Chad, that was gay numero one for the day. I'm keeping tabs.

    And thanks guys! I'm struggling a bit this week more than normal. My creative mind is playing tug of war with the traditional ideas of a "wedding picture." That, and I'm absolutely hating only having 30 short minutes to work with the couple while everyone watches me. Stressful. But, welcome to wedding photography.

    stay posted and I'll put up more. : )
