When Elijah asked for a morning time slot, I wasn’t sure if he knew that the best light meant we had to be up at sunrise, so when I mentioned the starting time, I fully expected him to want another date. He didn’t seem to flinch though (this conversation was not in person, mind you), and he moved forward with the morning photography plan! I got up at dawn, made coffee, and headed out to Lake Shawnee. To my absolute delight, and I mean DELIGHT, there was a gentle fog resting in the valleys, and I knew: if we were headed to water, we were headed to fog.
Science break: fog happens with the dew point is higher than the temperature. I Googled that once, and I mostly have no idea what it means, but you better believe I think about it every time it’s foggy outside.
Science break over.
When I saw the fog, I texted Elijah, and told him to stay in his car, because I had the perfect spot at the lake in mind to overlook the foggy landscape. Once we met up, we relocated, and guys, it was the stuff of dreams. See the second photo to know what I’m talking about.
My favorite thing about the fog? It made the at times harsh morning light so gentle and light-wrappy for these two to show off their gorgeous faces for me and celebrate the fact that they’re getting married this summer. That’s adds a win to a win. You might even say it was a win win.
In case you’re ever like, “Oh, the weather’s nice. Maybe I should go to the lake with the person I’m in love with forever and feel beautiful with them,” definitely do that, and then also invite me to take photos of you while you do it and interrupt you during your romantic moments together. It’s kind of my thing.
Elijah & Josie, stay adorable. Like that’s even going to be a challenge for you. Can’t wait to see you this summer, vowin’ it up, and lookin’ fly as heck.
