Tis the season for engagement pictures and weddings. We have kicked off our season in full fashion. We love when engagement season and wedding season arrive. It creates quite a stir of excitement in our studio. We love to opportunity to photograph engagement pictures for amazing couples that are up for anything. Meet Molly and Eddie. We had the awesome opportunity to photograph Molly and Eddie’s engagement session in a 2 part series. You can view part 1 of their engagement session here.
Choosing a Location for Your Engagement Session
Choosing a location for your engagement session is critical to the outcome of your final images. We always encourage our couples to choose a location that is near and dear to their hearts. If you viewed Molly and Eddie’s first session they chose to be photographed at Blue Bird Gap.
Blue Bird Gap was perfect for Molly and Eddie. They love the outdoors. Blue Bird Gap offered an array of beautiful backgrounds for their engagement session.
For the second part of their engagement portrait session we recommended shooting in a historic location. We are always looking for locations that offer texture, color and a variety of settings.
Incorporating interesting textures and backgrounds add interest to your image. It encourages the viewer to explore deeper into the picture.
Creative Photographic Lighting
Creative lighting is something that is a signature part of our brand. We are always experimenting with light. We love to create a mood or feeling in an image by different lighting techniques. In these images we have used a photographic lighting technique called off camera lighting. Here is more information on our basic off camera lighting.
We had the honor to photograph Molly and Eddie’s amazing wedding day yesterday. Check back soon to view a sneak peek into their wedding that was located on a historic plantation. Just breathtaking!

Engagement photos are not only fun, but important for our clients. We call the engagement session their rehearsal for their wedding day.

Outdoor Engagement Photography
Meet Molly and Eddie. When looking for a wedding photographer, they knew that they wanted a photographer that could capture the essence of who they are and make them look their very best. What an honor to be chosen to be both their wedding and engagement photographer!
For engagement photos, most couples will choose a location that represents who they are. For their engagement pictures, Molly & Eddie wanted a beautiful and natural setting.
To begin their engagement session we wanted to capture some candid moments. We found this great path through this beautiful forest. This was the perfect setting for what we were envisioning.
It is great to start to a photo shoot is capturing candid pictures. Movement adds interest to a photograph. Also, capturing candid photos help our couples relax. The couple become comfortable in front of the camera.
The area was so beautiful, we set up this next series of photos. We used the path to draw the viewer’s eye to the subject. The result is a beautiful portrait. We photographed Molly and Eddie by the tree in a romantic pose.
We then discovered a barn that would be the next perfect portrait spot! We used a couple of different lighting techniques in the barn.
We love experimenting with light. Using different lighting techniques gives you various results without having to move your clients. What a great way to take advantage of a small area. For tips and tricks of our lighting techniques, check out our lighting information.
For us it is important to incorporate the surroundings in a portrait. By doing this our client can reference exactly where they were, what they were thinking and remembering the experience of their portrait session.

Molly has always been a tree climber. When we saw this beautiful tree we knew it was a must to include in their engagement photos. The limbs on the tree fit Molly perfectly. We were able to create some relaxed and more candid photos using the tree as our prop. By using a variety of lenses we were able to capture multiple looks in the pictures. With the help of a wide angle lens we are able to capture the grandness of the tree.
We are looking forward to Molly and Eddie’s wedding day. Stop back by the blog soon for their wedding day portraits!

One of the great things about having a portrait studio in a coastal area is being able to do outdoor portrait session at the ocean front. It gets even better when you are in an area that has the beach and a beautiful downtown setting. We had the privilege of capturing Caroline and Brandon’s engagement session. What a great place for photographs and what a great couple!

Ahhhh…couples portraits. What can I say? Capturing the love between a man and woman….priceless.
