Jason +Stacy’s Engagement Photo Session
Last week I photographed Jason and Stacy’s engagement photos at Bate Island as well as at the John Ceprano rock sculptures at Remic Rapids Park. I have wanted to do a portrait session at the rock sculptures for months, but when I scouted the location the first time this past June, the part of the river that has the sculptures was still too high that the sculptures were still underwater. Although I was disappointed not to be able to shoot portraits there earlier this summer, I was very happy that I finally got a chance to shoot portraits there.
Thanksgiving Monday (the day we did the shoot) was a strange day, weather-wise with dark clouds, then sun, dark clouds, sun, etc. However, in the afternoon and early evening the clouds dissipated and the sun shone though making for some beautiful light.
Jason and Stacy showed up looking fantastic. Stacy had a little collection of spectacular boots and shoes to use for the session. Jason thought it was overkill, but as a girl I completely understood. Although she didn’t end up wearing all of the shoes that she brought, a girl can never have too many shoes at her disposal.
Thanks to Jason and Stacy for putting up with some of my ideas for the shots–even if it meant that Jason was blinded by the sun so that I could use the light to show off Stacy’s cool looking eyes. Really, this girl has an amazing colour of eyes. I am looking forward to photographing Jason and Stacy’s wedding this February. In the meantime, enjoy the photos from their engagement photo session.
