i heart faces: texture

this week at i heart faces, they're focusing on texture--both those found naturally in the environment and those added through photo editing programs. i purchased a set of the florabella textures back in the fall and have used them to add to many of my photos. i realized that i hadn't featured any photos from joe and kristi's engagement shoot and decided this was the perfect opportunity to use some of their gorgeous pictures!

i really loved the feel of this picture and how the black and white tones and the texture contributed to a vintage feel. the colors are really muted, which is very different from what i typically do. i think that's been my biggest learning curve with textures--how to keep the saturated, bright colors that i usually favor while also incorporating the textures.
