Maria Isabel Photography | An Aggie Engagement

Hey!
So this past Saturday I got the opportunity to better my photography skills and get some more experience. I was so excited and nervous about doing this shoot, and when I got there I just over thought everything and got even more nervous, but once I started to get in the zone I felt really confident and just let everything sort of flow. Looking back at when I first started with photographing my best friends back home, I can see the process in my pictures and in my editing and it is really rewarding. Oh, I am also getting the opportunity to shoot their wedding! My first big job! :)

The Learning Photographer
I don't really know how other photographers work, but I know that what I want to better in is sort of the lighting. Finding the perfect lighting and just making the photo speak for itself. I want to be able to get them on my computer and do as little editing. I feel if you over edit it, you loose what the whole picture has to offer. Don't get me wrong, pictures do need editing to look better but I like just being able to bring out the colors, make them brighter and give them a sharp contrast. I feel like in the process of learning to be a good photographer, editing is one of the toughest part. A picture can either become really beautiful and vibrant or dull and colorless. This to me is one of the toughest parts. I am so lucky to be able to have the experience and opportunity to grow as a photographer and I cant wait to see what the future holds with this "hobby". 

The Day of the Shoot
So anyways, Saturday my trusty assistant ( my sister and the couples friend ), headed to College Station, Texas and paid a visit to the wonderful school that is Texas A&M University. I have never been up there and I was really excited. I have heard a lot about College Station and not going to lie, but like half of my high school goes there. Anyways, we met up with them about 4:30 just when the sun started to head down and the game was over (which they won by the way). We headed to the station which was now empty and started the shoot. We were able to get on the field and take some amazing shots. Once we did that, we needed to get out and there was a man (which was a player) who took us through the new locker room. It was amazing. It felt like we were in a spaceship and above every players locker there was a TV with their pictures and their information. It was incredible. This was the couples favorite part. He graduate from here so it was a great experience and I was so glad we were able to do that. We then headed around campus and took more pics, but instead of explaining it I will let you see it for yourself. 

There are a lot of pictures but these are some of my favorite ones!


This is my favorite one :)

  1. You did a really great job! I wish I had someone like you to shoot my wedding photos. My photographer was... not so great. I only got a couple prints made from my wedding and I don't even display them, that's how bad they are! I cried for days when I received them.
