barry + jana | busch stadium and beyond

jana + barry knew just where they wanted to start their engagement session.
any guesses where we might be?


ta-da:
and hey, it's not called "the golden hour" for nothing.
don't you just want to drink in that quality of light!:

oh when i see the emotion, the FEELING found in images like the one above and below (and below that, and below that LOL), it's sure makes a static (i.e. stand here, look at camera) shot seem um, not-so-exciting.

the following might embody drinking-in-the-light to the point of an ice-cream head-freeze. but OH! it's so fun to find the flair thru the lens!

a change of clothes/a change of scenery.
QUICK name THIS St. Louis landmark:

oh wait, you can see "city hall" above the door, can't you . . .
the evening's palette seemed to call out for a bit of texture when processing.
honestly for me the verdict is still out on this as a technique to embrace, but texture sure is fun to play with when you have the right image to work with....um, like THIS one:

Photobucket
no texture applied to the following, but wow, love what we (meaning annika and i along with a FANTASTIC couple-in-love, jana + barry) were able to do with our new video light:
