In this Las Vegas engagement shoot, we checked out the highly underutilized Canon RF100 F2.8 L MACRO IS USM lens. People may forget about this lens, but it's really a swiss army knife. You can get tight shots, those macro details, as well as full-body portraits.
Candid photography poses. Sounds like an oxymoron, right? It’s not though. In elementary school science class we learned that with every action there is a reaction, right?
Engagement Photos is an amazing way to break the ice and connect with couples. It gives the couple an opportunity to experience working with you before the wedding day.
What I propose is that you have a system for engagement shoots (or really any shoot). Maybe you’ll only have it in the back of your mind and bring it up on the uncreative days. Or perhaps you’ll just use it as a starting point to get everything flowing from there. Either way, having a go-to process in my head has helped me on numerous occasions. Posing guides are great, but having a method in the back of your mind will be much faster to access. Here’s my method and process of how I shoot my typical engagement session and how I interact with my clients and pose them. My sessions are slated as hour-long sessions, usually shooting about an hour before sunset so I have the best natural light and can maybe even snag a sunset or twilight picture or two.
