Few Tips About Engagement Sessions



Here are a few simple tips of how you can prepare yourself to take better engagement photos:

  • Good light is all around you so paying attention to natural light… this is the one of the most important things you can do to improve your photography.
  • Be patient. At times, some of the best images come from just being patient; wait for organic moments as it happen.
  • Use prime lenses. My personal favorite is the 50mm 1.2 – I love it so much, I can shoot an entire engagement session with this lens.
  • Spot meter. When shooting back lighting you will want to spot meter for the couple’s skin tone.
  • My engagement sessions are 1 to 1.5hr. long so I usually shoot 1.5 after sunrise or 1.5 before sunset.
  • Arrive early. First of all you don’t want your clients waiting for you and you also want to arrive early to scope location for the best spots.
  • Before starting the session let the couple know it’s ok to have fun and enjoy the process.

Once Upon a Time……

There was a beautiful bride getting ready –

I love to photographs brides when they are getting ready.  Love all the details, all the excitement, all the craziness going on, the smiles, the tears, their glow into their eyes. Knowing one of their most important moments of their life is just a few hours away.

Here are some photographs of Claribel getting ready at her beautiful house in Milford. I will be posting her ceremony/reception next week, so make sure to bookmark my fabuluxe blog and talk to you then!!  🙂

Nicole & Michael’s wedding was awesome. Lighthouse Point Park is such a beautiful place to have a wedding. I am hoping to meet them again there for her Trash The Dress Session They are such a nice & fun couple. One of the groomsman was Kevin, the owner of Kevin Lee Studios.
