Cherry Blossoms, is there anything more lovely than these little beauties? Every Spring I become this anxiety ridden mess of a human being because I make it my mission to capture these gorgeous pink trees in full bloom. They only bloom for a few days and if you don’t time it right, you’ll miss them! Or worse, the petals will be sparse and destitute. I must have driven past this spot on 7 different occasions before I was finally ready to shoot. Mother nature pulled a little trick on me this year and moved spring back a full month! lol For the shoot, I was going for an organic look and feel. I wanted magic hour sunlight, beauty shot portraits and movement in the hair and clothing. I also wanted to play with the depth of field between the branches. I love it when a few elements of the shot are out of focus! We used the Canon 50mm for most of the shoot. All of the photos were taken at f/1.8 or f/2.8 to give it that soft/delicate look that I find so pleasing to the eye. For the edit, I used the “Frosting” Lightroom Preset from The Wedding Collection. I also used my Brushes from The Brush Collection to clean up any spots that needed some extra attention. I love the way that this preset gives you that warm and inviting look. I created a Behind The Scenes Edit Video below to show you what the “Frosting” Lightroom Preset looks like in action. I also added a few quick video clips from the shoot to give you a more well-rounded experience. Happy editing everyone!
