Like last year, I’m not doing a “Best of 2014” blog post. I just can’t get it done. Instead, I’m sharing this, one of my favorite photos of the year. It’s from Alex and Katie’s November wedding at Rockledge Manor, just under the Mill Mountain Star in Roanoke. They had an outdoor candlelight reception. It was beautiful, but very dark. I lit most of their first dance with a speedlight high on a stand to the left, but when I saw the flag centered just above them and the warm ambient light hitting Alex’s profile just so, I turned it off and snapped this one.
Here’s hoping your new year is full of moments just like this, made up of love and warmth and the most beautiful light around.
