I recently had the pleasure of shooting an engagement photo session for two dear friends, Chris and Johanna. Since we are friends, we had lots of fun with the shoot.
One of my favorite photos from the session was the above image of Chris holding open his empty wallet and frowning, while Johanna was holding out the ring and smiling. Chris is always joking around, so I thought this concept suited him well.
We decided to meet one morning and shoot around Donaldsonville.
The weather was clear and beautiful. I had plenty of blue sky to utilize.
Any time I'm working on a shoot, I'm constantly thinking of creative ideas and looking for interesting images. The above photo of the fleur-de-lis fence was another favorite. I especially liked how their Saints jerseys are blurred, but still recognizable.
I may be biased since I'm from there, but I love to use the historic buildings in Donaldsonville. I love parks, and I love fields as much as the next person, but there is something about aged architecture. It can't be faked.
Lots of people ask me about shooting in a studio. Those are all fine and good, but there are limits to what can be done indoors.
Photography is about going out and exploring our world. Photography is about adventure. It's about putting life into living. And living it to the fullest.
