There’s a quote by Eliott Erwitt that says “The whole point of taking pictures is so you don’t have to explain things with words.” At the Amanda Watson Workshop a few months ago, the one thing I strived for is to story tell in a way I could achieve just that. This styled editorial of an engaged couple told the story of a young and romantic couple in love. The white washed out walls of the White Sparrow gave the vibrant blue dress a nice contrast. The movement in the dress, almost reminded me of painting strokes on a white canvas. I love shooting black and white film when the occasion arises and nothing set the tone better for a couple of rolls than the candle-lit stairway case. Shooting solely film at the workshop pushed me to slow down and shoot more intentionally and to think “outside of the box”. This editorial engagement session is sure an inspiration for any future bride whether she is getting married at The White Sparrow barn or at any other venue in Dallas. Long flowy dresses are always a particular favorite of mine. Those dreamy, romantic, and timeless engagement session images I so love to create are sometimes because of so much you can do with the perfect outfits. When in doubt on what to wear to your engagement session. Wear a long and flowy gown. You won’t regret it!
The White Sparrow is famous for it’s diversity in styles of wedding it hosts each year. I think the fact that it’s an all white venue makes it so classic and so diverse at the same time. Any bride can happily plan a wedding here and have something so unique to her style. Mainly because it’s a white canvas and anything created here will look great! I’m excited for the weddings we’ll have here this year!
