Kelly + Dave: Engagement Session in Steveston
What a gorgeous sunny afternoon we had with Kelly + Dave out in Steveston. The two love spending time out there walking along the shoreline path at Garry Point Park, so it was the perfect place to have an engagement photo session with them. The sun was so warm and bright, which lent itself nicely to a relaxed, ‘hot days of summer’ themed photo session. Contrary to popular belief a bright high sun is actually not flattering light to photograph people in, but we had a number of tricks up our sleeves to shoot in those conditions… so off we went and created some great and varied images of Kelly + Dave. They later said they were quite nervous at first when we started photographing them, not having been in front of a camera very much beforehand. But then Dave said that right after the first few shots, they instantly felt totally comfortable with us and it shows in their photographs. We find that many of our clients have not spent much time with professional photographers before, which is why we think it’s just great to have a fun and relaxed engagement session before the wedding day, because it really helps to feel more confident on your wedding day with the tips we can give during the engagement session. Plus, best of all, it’s great to have some professional photographs to celebrate your engagement and have some great images of the two of you outside the wedding day. Anyhow, we really had a lot of fun with Dave and Kelly and are looking forward to their wedding later this summer. 🙂
To shake things up a bit, we had a special little surprise for Dave. When we rolled into Steveston to find some options to Garry Point park in case of rain, we found this old, vintage garage! We knew that Dave is training to be a specialized truck mechanic, so we thought this would be a perfect little add-on location to their engagement photo session!
