I’ve been doing this for a few years now and sometimes i’ve been more consistent than others…. but I’ve now done over 600 posts. Pretty Cool.
ABOUT THE SHOOT
I had this couple come up with a spot.
They choose the house that he grew up in and that they’d be moving into after they got married. The property is pretty deverse and it’s up on the mountain side in Provo Utah.
I love taking on challenges of places that have meaning to clients but aren’t the proto-typical… but in the end this place was pretty awesome. A little more rustic and the color pallett was pretty distinct and fun.
Because it’s on the west side of the mountain we were able to shoot in shady light for a long time until the shade finally hit.
MY ENGAGEMENT SHOOTS
We work together as a team. I try to foster their personality and creativity and they allow me to do the same.
This way it becomes more like a day of hanging out and having fun and being creative… and Never painful pictures.
We go until the shots are gotten and we are happy.
We use what is at our disposal and they trust that with whatever we choose I will be there to make sure they get the best pictures possible.
I try new things that I don’t normally do… like the shot below. Because the lighting was just right and the idea seemed appropriate for them.
I put my bright style of colors and contrast into my work
These are both pictures for THEM and for the many people that they will be sending announcement to. So we need to see who they are and the interaction between them.
I get Close ups
Or Scenic Pictures
And I get humorous pictures that are very them
I encourage creativity. I don’t stifle it by acting as if only the photographer knows anying.
You Like sunflowers… well your image might not work, but let’s roll with it and do something a bit different with the same theme.
Love has many sides to it… among them are tenderness and joy
And as you can see they can be done in the same places
I also get solo shots
And As you’ve seen… Even a good mixture of B&W choices
