Wedding | Photography.

As you might imagine, the first few months after getting engaged involve a lot of trolling through wedding blogs, getting those first glimpses of inspiration.  Do enough "research," and you start to recognize a photographer's work before you even scroll down to the credits.  Elizabeth Messina is one such talented photog.  I credit her work with light for totally changing how I feel about capturing people (in pictures!  not in real life!), and in particular - as it is her forte - weddings.        

I mean, see what I'm saying?  

When I started researching photographers for our wedding, how they captured light in interesting ways was my top criteria.  That's a large part of why we're working with Jen of Luna Dulce Photography, but more about that some other time :)

Elizabeth Messina's work has also inspired me in my own very amateur photography.  And that's how I ended up impulsively purchasing Elizabeth's The Luminous Portrait about a month ago, at pretty much the minute I learned she'd published a book on capturing light.  I've been reading it in pieces here and there (lots of information to take in and process!).  Can't wait to work on implementing her advice.
