We’re engaged!

Here are two more images from the engagement session with Travis and Amy. In both cases I used my Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens (aka the ‘nifty fifty’) to accentuate the engagement ring. I really like the bokeh such a lens produces.

Photo edges

When I first began shooting digital, back in 2004, I thought it’d be cool to add some old-fashioned ‘film’ edges to my images. I never saw any I liked, however, and that idea kind of faded away. This morning, while editing a set of engagement photos I shot a few days ago, I thought I’d see how some of them looked with those kinds of edges. A google search got me to a page that has 50 of them, royalty-free, so I’m posting a couple of them here. These images were taken near Brice Creek, about an hour southeast of Eugene, Oregon. The first image has a brushed border and the second image has a filmstrip border. I’m going to look at them again in a few days to see if they still look cool.

The Rings

During an engagement session I always incorporate the ring into a few shots. In this e-session, featuring Trisha and Jordan, they both had their rings on so this shot was a no-brainer! This image was made on the bridge at the Clark Creek Campground, near Lowell.

Springtime at Alton Baker

Alton Baker Park is a wonderful place for engagement photos; I’ve done a few e-sessions there and they’ve all been great. This photo is from an e-session I shot yesterday but the difference is, this was an elopement session! I must admit, this was the first time I’ve ever been hired to shoot photos of a couple that’s decided to elope. The fruit trees were in full bloom and the clouds parted long enough to provide a pastel blue backdrop.

A Very Portland Engagement

This is another image from the e-session I shot in Portland, with Jenny and Johnny, at Tanner Springs Park.
