Danielle and Ryan

Hi everyone! Brad and I got a chance to shoot with Danielle and Ryan down in Westerville a week ago and we put together a video to show you some of the best shots from the shoot. Danielle and Ryan are getting married on December 27th at a beautiful location in Sunbury. To complement their choice in venue, we thought it would be fun to mix things up a bit and try a downtown/metro shoot.

It was interesting to hear that Danielle and Ryan didn't really have many photos of themselves together, so of course, we aimed to provide an abundance of great photography. It's always very interesting to me to see a couple loosen up in front of the camera and really lose themselves in the moment. After shooting with Brad and I for 20 minutes or so, Danielle and Ryan started to just run with it and it was easy to capture the magic from there. That's what I love about our engagement sessions; they give us chance to let the couple be themselves and for us to establish a great relationship before the wedding day. Enjoy the photos!

Jen and Bryce Engagement

Chris and I had the opportunity to work with a fantastic couple this weekend up in Lansing Michigan. I have to admit, it's a shame that I didn't get a chance to visit the campus of Michigan State University before choosing a college, because I'm pretty sure that this was one of the most scenic campuses I've ever been to.

Jen and Bryce met at MSU, so we decided to capture the first part of their story on campus. We got a chance to do some really great work with them. Very at ease, and definitely into each other. (wink)

We also got a chance to shoot in downtown Lansing at the State Capitol building. The light was pouring in through the brilliant fall colors and I think we were able to capture some of our best engagement work yet.

Check out the vid!

Lighting Diagram

Typical example of what we are doing, especially on engagement sessions. We like to travel light, so we try to utilize the sun as a second light source whenever possible.
