I intentionally used the really wide aperture in this image because I wanted to create out of focus elements in the forest. In non-photographer language, I made the camera make things (like the tree trunk in the middle of the frame) look fuzzy. I wanted everyone to feel like they’re getting a little sneak peak into Andrea and Jacob’s first look. These first looks are such a private moment between couples and I feel so honored to usually be the only person who gets to see their joy. With a photo like this, I really want you to feel that little look too.
