The Spring bridal session at antelope Island with Lindsey turned out beautiful, but getting these shots was anything but easy. We had to walk on a rough dirt trail, through a field of boulders, and were attached by swarms of mosquitoes.
As you may know if you read my previous blog entry, I was just at this same spot yesterday. It was perfect yesterday, and the weather was supposed to be just like it was yesterday, and the bride liked my pictures from yesterday, so we decided to give it a try. All in all, it was nearly a carbon copy of yesterday except the sky was more yellow than orange and red, and we were attacked by swarms of mosquitoes.
We were fine until we got to the rocks next to the lake. At that point the closer we got to the lake, the more mosquitoes landed on us. I say us but I really mean the bride. Prior to starting the photo shoot, I had doused myself with mosquito repellent. I don't like taking chances as I know that even though yesterday we did not see any bugs, that can change really quickly. Actually I use the repellent more for the biting fleas as I have never, until this day, been attacked by mosquitoes here. I offered some repellent to the bride but she declined.
Poor Lindsey was swarmed, and lucky I brought mosquito repellent on the shoot and she sprayed herself but later she told me she had about 40 mosquito bites from that night. Next time I'm going to make repellent a requirement for a shoot Spring bridal Session at Antelope Island.
