Alan + Nevada

I don't get a lot of time to do weddings, portraits and such, but when some friends are flexible and the schecule works out, it certainly is a lot of fun. Alan and Nevada will tie the knot in July, but we got to hang out for a couple of hours last Saturday evening.

First things first... photographing folks with great personalities is a huge plus, and these two are pretty much naturals in front of the camera.

Second, it wasn't quite 'golden hour' light yet, but we found some good light and fun backgrounds around downtown Terrell.

Old storefronts are abundant.

There are many brick walls to choose from.

And random spots of nice, shady light

Shady spots are good, but you still have to look at where the light is coming from. I did not have any helpers for reflectors or lights, so I packed very light. Just a fill flash here and there and available light for this shoot.

When in doubt, jump.
