I photographed some really great couples last year. In fact all the couples I have worked with have been fun and interesting, and I always enjoy spending time together with them. There are two images from the 2011 engagement sessions that really stood out for me. The first image is from Jessica and Carl’s engagement session along the San Antonio Riverwalk. The Riverwalk creates an endless list of photo possibilities, and while the below photo could have been taken anywhere, the charm of the location and the congratulations from the tourists made the trip that much more exciting.
Another wonderful image from 2011 was Jacqueline and Roy’s photo from Gorrell Park. I most often try to schedule engagement sessions around sunset. The light at that time of day is beautiful and makes for brilliant images. Jacqs and Roy’s session was around noon in July, and there is no harsher light than at that time of day and that time of year. Gorrell Park turned out to be a fantastic location, and the images were amazing. The large oak trees provided some diffused light, and I further refined the look by adding some off camera lighting. For me the image below turned out to be the most lovely shot of the two.
