- About This Post
Since I booked Rachel and Jonathan’s wedding over the phone, their engagement session was the first time I got to see them. We’d had to reschedule a couple times due to weather – and even though it still ended up being pretty breezy, we forged ahead anyways and just worked with it. This is the first engagement I’ve shot in quite a while using 100% available light (except the very last Bay Bridge shot); I usually haul around lighting equipment and previsualize all my shots accordingly. So, I felt a little “light” going with only my two cameras. But you know what? It was refreshing, and great practice – I’m so used to making the light happen where I want it, that doing it this way brought me back to my roots – seeing what’s already there, and capturing it in a unique way. Plus, my back thanked me and we could move from location to location much quicker, netting more photos as a result.
Rachel and Jonathan are really sweet and considerate – and truly genuine individuals. They made sure I was fed before the shoot, and were really curious about the ins and outs of what the shoot would entail. They were excellent subjects and easy to direct – plus they had a natural chemistry that I only had to tweak here and there for composition’s sake. Below are my favorite photos from the session, please comment below if you like what you see.

- If you don’t think you have what it takes to look like one of the couples on this page – you’re wrong! With a little coaching and a couple shots of tequila (I jest…), you can get results just like all the other “normal” non-model people you see here. I’ve been shooting engaged couples for quite a few years, and I absolutely love it. It’s a challenge that I embrace – and let’s be honest, you two will be way more cooperative than a couple of cranky toddlers – right?
