Elisha's Favorite Photo from 2018
As a team, we always enjoy looking back at our past work. It allows us a chance to see where we excelled, and where we may need to improve. This year, we did this exercise a little differently. Each photographer chose one of their favorite photos from 2018- one that told a story. We’re sharing those photos and the stories behind them here. Enjoy!
We had a gray, rainy day, so I suggested we go to the National Gallery of Art where there is this large open space with unique architectural features and a glass ceiling that allows the natural light to shine through. I had photographed in this location a few other times, so I knew where to stand to make a great posed photo of the wedding party, and I knew it was something I could do easily. Once the posed photo was done, the group continued down the stairs and I kept shooting, noticing how they were evenly spaced with unique body language. I was ready and got lucky with the placement of the folks on the stairs and the happy expression on Brooke’s face as she glances back at her bridesmaid. This is what makes the photo so delightful and rare. I walked away from this moment with such joy as I was certain in my heart I had something special. Moments like this you can strive for, but you may not always achieve.
