Bed of Roses

I really am becoming a fan of taking outfit post photos outside. There are a lot more variables, and the time of day in which you can shoot is tricky (especially if you squint in the sun as much as I do), but overall I like the results. Yes, there is more chance for hiccups and weird backgrounds, but I love that. You never know what you'll get.

For instance when I went to take these photos in a massive Rose Garden outside of the Natural History Museum, I intended to use a gazebo I saw in the distance. No such luck, it was occupied by some happy people who I'm sure didn't want a blogger crowding them out. Fortunately my boyfriend located some shade in the distance and we snapped these. I don't know how I'd take my photos without him.

  1. Beautiful and lovely dress :)

  2. i LOVE your dress =) thanks for sharing!

  3. Outside photos really can be tricky, but I find that most of the time they're worth it. I've been playing around a lot with my new DSLR (I call her Cami) and I'm still working around those variables you mentioned, but when the stars align you simply can't beat it!
