On Saturday afternoon, I met with Tim & Jennifer to shoot their engagement pictures. We had originally scheduled pictures for early March, but Jennifer ended up sick in the hospital! So, we needed to push back the shoot to last Saturday. It was actually a good thing, since the weather was much more favorable than it would have been the first weekend in March. We started in my studio with a few “formal” shots with the studio lighting, and then we moved over to a park about 10 minutes away for some more fun & casual shots. They were such an easy couple to work with and great to photograph. I’m looking forward to their wedding this July!
I recently ordered a new lens for weddings this year, the Canon 70-200 f/2.8 with Image Stabilization. For those of you who don’t understand the photography language, it’s a telephoto lens that makes the background butter, and it helps to keep the thing you are focusing on sharp. Basically, it’s a really sweet lens… heavy, but sweet. It’s a very common one among wedding photographers, so I figured it was time to make the investment. Anyway, this was the first engagement session I was able to us it for and absolutely LOVED it. I am so happy with the shots I got with this lens! I can’t wait to break it in for a wedding!
I’m all about emotion in my pictures, however sometimes it’s fun to get the “serious” shots. I love these kinds of shots purely, because you can see the subject’s eyes. When people smile and are happy, their eyes squint up, therefore hiding their eyes. But, like I said above, I prefer to see emotion in shots vs. no emotion. 🙂
