I shot a wedding this past weekend at WV State College- not only was it a sweet wedding; I came across this!
For each wedding I shoot, I like to get a shot of something around the venue that will capture some “flavor” of the place. Something that means something to the couple.
But there’s more to this story……
One of the things I teach at my workshops is “Don’t forget to take a look at your front yard” meaning- look for the hidden in what’s familiar.
This was brought home to me in this one shot- I had never been to the WV State College campus before- even tho it’s within 20 minutes of my house. I’ve been to Marshall, WVU, Alderson Braddus, WV Tech, U of C, etc….but never here – and I have to tell you- there was so much to see, the history of the place, the grounds; I really fell in love with the place! I’d love to do a feature there sometime!
ANYWAY- don’t forget to look at the places around where YOU live for inspiration. I’m just sayin….
