|pomme d'amour and look at that engagement ring !|
Yesterday, I did my very first real engagement shoot. I did lovers and friends before but never a couple that has set a date to get married.
Luckily I had a lot of practise with these other couples - in love but no ring - to get ideas and how to use my settings and lenses for this kind of photoshoot.
The weather was awesome, sunny and warm and for the location we decided to take it to our local fair in town. The good part about that is you can make your couple do stuff, get into real action shots and props are available all over the place !
So, when you decide to engage in a shoot, think it through. Don't choose your location randomly but check places out before the actual date.
You can do a rehearsal with a voluntary dummy so when the actual shoot date has arrived, you know the best spots and light angles.
