I met with Dave and Laura in Calgary last week to shoot their engagement photos. We picked a perfect almost spring day with temperatures well above freezing. All we needed were light jackets and sunglasses! We walked the streets picking random locations along the way and even stopped for a pint in a local cafe. I had a great time with Dave and Laura. They were a lot of fun, full of laughs, and always joking around ;)
Here are a few of my favorite photo's from the shoot....
... I planned to shoot a variety of different styles of photographs for this shoot. I wanted to try extreme wide angle and motion blur shots. I wanted trendy and intimate photographs but needed to capture the fun loving couple as they are. I also edited in a variety of ways including sepia, monochrome, vivid color, and "old blue" as I like to call it. In the end, I was very happy with how the pictures turned out.
|Another great example of "framing" is seen here where Dave and Laura sit inside this old metal doorway. A perfect place for a little make-out session.... Again! haha|
|Shot with the equivalent of 16mm "extreme wide angle" which adds distortion all around the perimeter of the photograph. A difficult lens to use in portraiture because of the distortion. We wanted to show off Laura's beautiful ring in this photo.|
