Remember that amazing moment in Sweet Home Alabama at the very beginning of the movie...where it is a flashback to childhood...and she says; "What you wanna marry me for anyhow?" He never misses a beat with his brutally honest and equally sweet reply..."So I can kiss you anytime I want." I just adore the way the movie brings that scene back as adults with a total role reversal.
May and June...weddings abound. Romance is in the air. I am actually shooting a wedding in June - something I rarely do (as I am not sure I feel qualified) but the couple likes my style and I can't wait to capture more of them. We did a trial run with the engagement shoot. Here is a shot I loved that embraced my movie quote:
The bottom layout - my Claire (a ScrapHappy pal) had asked about. She wanted to know how I caught the photo...did I send them out in the rain? Truth is...I might have...as long as I had covered shelter for my camera- but the day was full sun. I am shy of any full sun shots - but we got some great ones that day. (Hit those manual settings just right) As I was reviewing the shoot - I had come upon the quote below:
For what it's worth, you can drag me outside just to kiss me in the rain, anyday! I had to use that quote and make the photos worth. TO THE RESCUE: the DailyDigi, I believe had this rain overlay in one of the monthly downloads. I used dark vignette around the edges to give the stormy feel to the sunny day. Seriously - in Illinois where the weather changes almost instantly - sun and rain happen. Rainbows are not that uncommon but always savored. I really enjoyed making these layouts. I hope you enjoy them, too.
