Curse you balloon!
This Is my SIL Heather and her husband to be James. They are getting hitched in February, so I asked them if I could take their engagement pictures. I had this grand idea of using a big orange balloon. While I stressed over the wheres and shot list of this balloon, Heather stressed on finding the perfect outfit, thus spending a small fortune at anthropologie. We started off by my house with no Balloon and then headed over to Carbon canyon. The first shots were by the lake and it was too bright so we walked around to the other side where it was shaded. That's when Heather felt it was time for a costume change. So while she was changing I held onto to the balloon. Heather then asked me to help her with her top, No problem. Adjusted her top, turn around and realize, THE BALLOON!!!! It was GONE!! I mean it was not even in the sky, it was gone! Heather started laughing, I started swearing. I was so mad. I got like 10 pictures with that stupid balloon. We couldn't even go get another one cuz by this time it was getting too dark. All my plans....ruined. Luckily Heather and James didn't care. We actually got a balloon the next morning and did a quick shoot and got some really good shots. The funny thing is as we were trying to pick out their invitation picture, we got Scott's opinion and he said " I don't know these just seem to say, look at my prop and cute outfit." Uhhh and your point is?!!! That's exactly what we were going for. In the end we chose a close up with no balloon and no cute skirt from Anthro. Go figure. But stay tuned for a ridiculous amount of pictures of Heather and James on my other blog.
