Harry Myers Park
Harry Myers Park is one of my favorite places for a photo session. This park is located close to downtown Rockwall, and offers a dog park, swimming pool, community building, three playgrounds including KidZone, walking trails, two baseball fields, three ponds, an
amphitheater, a sprayground, BBQ grills, gazebo, pavilions, natural open spaces and a skate park. I love the park because you can have an entire photo session in the park with literally hundreds of locations for scenic shots. My favorite areas of the park have a cute white gazebo, old white frame house, wooden shed, a small cotton field, ponds and a long bridge that make for awesome pictures. Almost any weekend you go, you will see someone taking pictures. Great location that is in the city, but has lots of outdoor space.
Details, Details, Details...
It important to capture the bride and groom, the birthday girl, or the beauty around us, but it is equally important to photograph the little details too. I love sneaking up to where the wedding reception will be held before the ceremony to get shots of the food, décor, flowers, and of course the cake. Close ups and shooting at different angles can create for some awesome shots. This insect is one of my favorite photos because you can see through the grass blades to the tiny insect that landed on a single blade . I have recently had the chance to study macro photography, and I find it fascinating to be able to look at the little details of an object. I love this type photography because it allows you to appreciate the little details of flower, insect, leaf, etc. You find yourself looking at things from a whole different prospective.
Wedding receptions, parties, and just about any occasion is a great opportunity for me as a photographer to capture those little details that you have worked so hard on in planning your special event. These close up shots make for a great collage! So go ahead a notice the buckle on a bridesmaid shoe, the wedding rings, candles, and party favors. You will find yourself looking at things in a whole new light!
I love to capture those special moments in people's lives through photography. I am constantly looking at a scene and thinking how could that work in a photo session, or what angle would work to capture the beauty that God has blessed us with.
