An Unplanned Moment: Louise and Tom’s Cornfield Adventure

Hello everyone! This month has been a whirlwind of excitement, and I’m buzzing to share one of the reasons why. I bagged an award for a completely unplanned photo featuring the terrific Louise and Tom in a cornfield. Now, let me tell you, this was not something we had on the itinerary for the day!

I drove past this stunning cornfield on my way to the church service. It was one of those moments when, as a photographer, you just know. The field was basking in the sunlight, and I thought, “This would make an epic backdrop for a picture with Louise and Tom.” After the service, I floated the idea to them about stopping off for a few minutes on our way to the reception to snap a few shots. And boy, am I glad we did!

The result? An award-winning photograph that captures the essence of spontaneity and the beauty of embracing the unexpected. Louise and Tom, with their radiant smiles and the golden cornfield stretching out behind them, created a scene so natural and vibrant that it caught the judges’ eye.

This experience is a perfect reminder of the magic that can happen when you’re willing to veer off the planned path. It’s also a testament to the adventurous spirit of Louise and Tom, who didn’t hesitate to stroll into a cornfield in their wedding attire. Their willingness to go along with my spur-of-the-moment idea resulted in an incredible photo and added a unique, memorable moment to their wedding day.

Images like this make wedding albums come to life, turning them into narratives of the day that go beyond the standard poses and settings. A double-page spread of this photograph would not just be a visual treat; it would tell a story of adventure, beauty, and the joy of saying “Yes” to the unexpected.

A massive thank you goes out to Louise & Tom for their time, trust, and willingness to follow me into a cornfield for what would become an award-winning shot. Your adventurous spirits have indeed paid off, not just in the form of this award but in a stunning photograph that you’ll be able to cherish for a lifetime.

Here’s to more unplanned adventures and the beautiful, unexpected moments they bring into our lives. Cheers!
