I’m finding that one of the benefits to doing the engagement photography is the opportunity to explore the city that I thought I knew. It’s a changing place out there! David and Keturah went with a Circular Quay Engagement session.
It also means that we can cover a quickly changing landscape in a few steps for a whole range of different looks.
This was last Friday night and the light was less than appealing. Cloud cover has the benefit of even illumination but can come at the expense of vibrancy and contrast. I was really hoping for a break in the clouds as we closed in on sunset cause that would have given us some great colours – but it wasn’t to be.
Instead, despite the cloud, we had fun exploring the other side of the bridge, the piers, the old buildings, and the change that has come to the area.
Dave and Keturah were great fun to be with and quite readily tried out some new things especially the shot with Dave “under foot”, and, via an RTA cone, declaring his love loudly and clearly!!
My favourite – the umbrella shot. I’m going to have to get me one of those brollies.
The other side to doing these shoots is for the couple coping with the presence of the photographer “looming” over their embrace or kiss. Still one has to practice for the time when someone says “you may now kiss the bride”, and a hundred point-and-shoots whirr into action.
