I heard that Georgia produces a lot of cotton every year. However, I never think about using Cotton field as my theme for engagement shoots. But this year in late September, I got this elegant surprise from one of the cotton fields in North Georgia.
Things started when I got my friends Kevin and Abby's invitation to their wedding. I went onto their wedding website and started my registration. I noticed that they haven't done their engagement photo yet, therefore I offered to shoot their photos as a present. They agreed happily. When I was choosing the location, Abby told me that she likes the "elegant and filmy style". I thought about the cotton field I passed by before in East Cobb Area and decided to give a shot.
Well I think I made the right decision. The cotton field and the sunset perfectly combined with each other and created this elegant filmy style for my friends.
You might noticed that the bride and groom changed two different outfits, and each one of them is kinda plain and cold color. Well, honestly this is my idea. I feel like the white/plain color clothing can make the them more elegant looking. I even helped them to make a white color bouquet. But honestly this is just my personal taste and seems like Kevin and Abby like my idea too. However, I did see another photographer in that field took a family who dressed in bright red and yellow to their photo shoot. Anyway, all I want to say is that the cotton field theme can be "manipulated" in different ways since white can go well with a lot of different colors.
Cotton fields will be at their peak around late September to early November every year in Georgia. The cotton field I know and took the shots is located around Plant Bowen, which is in East Cobb area. This will require you to drive at least one hour from Metro Atlanta and you need to spend some extra time to get the ideal spot. However, I do think this is a nice "investment" for who ever wants pictures in an elegant style.
I will be looking out for the cotton fields for the year of 2018. If you are interested, please contact me! Don't let the chance go!
