Shoot 4 of 5: I envisioned this shoot to be straight out of a fairytale: a huntsman with his lady. When I saw my models arrive decked out in their costumes, I was thrilled!

My photographer took us to a pretty park that had a woodsy feel to it, but let more light filter in than your average forest. Unfortunately, it started to rain that day, and it got so bad at one point that we had to call it quits. Rain and stationery do not mix too well. Bummer.
