Ashlee was referred to me by one of my previous brides, Christie. Ashlee had already lined up a photographer for her wedding day but wanted me to photograph her bridals. We met at Starbucks one afternoon (since I was still renovating my office space) and talked about her expectations and ideas about the session. Ashlee showed me a few examples she had seen online but mainly wanted to have a setting a little more rustic.
With our discussing in hand I set out looking for a location. I usually try to keep from reusing locations from bride to bride (and engagement to engagement) unless the location is specifically mentioned in our meetings. I set out to find a rural, rustic location around the Corpus Christi area and just when I was going to continue down the paved road, I saw a barn off down a dirt county road. I decided to head down the road to see what I could find and was amazed by what I stumbled upon. In my mind this location was perfect. The day of the session I explained the location and Ashlee and her mother followed me out there and we began. Ashlee did a wonderful job posing and following direction, and I have to admit that I absolutely love the set that came about. Since we had time, I tried a few things that were outside of my photographic comfort zone – because hey, how else can you determine your bounds.
As I was working to dial in my settings before we began, I happened to notice the turbulence from the fierce winds was causing Ashlee’s veil to float so while she thought I was still taking a few test shots, I caught this one image at exactly the right moment.
