Well it’s been way too long since I’ve blogged anything, but it’s been a busy spring shooting various projects so I’ve let the weeds grow around here a little bit. Now that wedding season is starting to get in full swing I’m trying to get back into blogging mode. We’re also still tweaking the layout of the website so please excuse any funky formatting you see.
These pictures are from a recent shoot down at Discovery Park in Magnolia. I can’t wait for Meredith & Joe’s wedding, which is coming up soon in Downtown Seattle. They have such great chemistry and it shows in front of the camera. People always ask what they need to do for engagement or wedding portraits, and it’s super simple actually. Just be yourselves and do what comes naturally and the pictures will turn out awesome!
Here are a few pictures from Katy & Chris’ engagement portrait session at Discovery Park in Magnolia. Discovery Park is always such a fun place to shoot. It’s one of those Seattle Parks that is so big, you can always find a cool place to shoot, no matter what the light or weather is like.
Pro Tip – The best time for pictures is often the hour before sunset known as the “Golden Hour”. If you can plan a portrait session or carve out a few minutes during your wedding reception for some outdoor shots, you will be rewarded with the best natural light of the day. The light gathering capabilities on the current generation of cameras (I currently shoot mainly with a Canon 1DX) are so good, that with a fast top tier lens, you can actually keep shooting for a good 15-20 minutes after the sun goes down and still get amazing naturally-lit pictures.
