Being with Hannah, I get to witness the long process of a woman getting ready. Everything from picking the outfit, to doing her nails, doing her makeup, her hair, shoes, and jewelry. Normally I just get bored waiting for her to get ready, because I take 15 minutes and she takes an hour and a half. But today I saw what would make a good photograph and got to thinking. Say what you will, but you have to give women some credit for the amount of effort and time they put into looking their best. Men will never work that hard at their appearance. While I think she looks incredibly beautiful even after she just rolled out of bed, I definitely appreciate how hard she works at getting ready.
Sometimes when I take a shot I can imagine so much more. So much more that could go into the shot. So many other shots that I could get. So many ways to play with the light and the location. All the different subjects, moods, and emotions I could work with. All these things just pop in my head and then it’s my job to turn it into reality. So as I took this shot, I explained to Hannah how I could imagine a bride, in an elegant white dress, walking down this path. This spot would be perfect for weddings. Maybe I’ll get those shots someday.
