One of my favorite thing about this job is the way that it constantly challenges me. Every lighting situation or weather condition is unique and the crazier it gets the more I love it because it truly pushes the boundaries of creativity. To put it simply if you want to take epic and different photos put yourself in an epic and different location or situation. For Carly and Taylor’s Bald Rock Engagement Session we definitely had epic conditions. Anne and I arrived a bit early as we always try to do to scout out some of the best spots and see what the light is doing. When we pulled up the entire Bald Rock was covered in fog! I mean maybe 5 feet of visibility. Now for those who haven’t been up there before, on a clear day you can see mountains and valleys for miles. It is truly one of the most scenic photo locations in South Carolina. But when we arrived…..a complete white out.
After checking the weather I noticed that it looked to be warming up a bit with some winds meaning that if we waited it out it had a good chance of clearing, and it did! But not before we got to have some fun in the fog with these two (who did absolutely amazing by the way) It really could not have worked out any better! We strolled around the rock stopping at a few spots for some fun photos and then made our way into the forest for some fun shots. After a quick outfit change we made our way back to the ridge just as the fog began to lift for some epic shots!
We had a blast with these two! They were so much fun and I can’t thank them enough for being so cool. I can’t wait for their wedding next year at South Wind Ranch!
