Nina and Benjamin decided to have their engagement session in Georgetown, DC at the location where it all began the Ristorante Piccolo (where they went on their first date)! This couple was down to earth, stylish and my personal favorite: oh so obviously in love. We got to hear more about what makes them click as a couple and make plans for some really exciting photography for their wedding (you will not want to miss those shots so go ahead and my page if you haven't already!). Here are some of my favorite shots from their shoot!!
They are just SO cute right!? So pumped for their wedding! Recently get engaged? We would love to talk to you about capturing YOUR big day!
*Just for photographers*
I have heard a lot of my up and coming photographers friends ask how to shoot when there is full sun. This shoot was a great example of how you can utilize shadows and use OCF or how to properly expose for full sun. I think part of the problem now a days is people are shooting to get a light and airy look (which IS very pretty!). When shooting in full sun MAKE sure to properly expose (don't over expose or under too much!) and you'll get a really nice outcome! You will notice in some of the shots we are in the shade but Scott has kindly used a reflector to bounce light back in to their faces. In other shots we set up OCF slightly off to the left (or right) of the shooter to give a really nice portrait lighting and in the full sun shots we properly expose the shots (or slightly underexpose)! Get out there and give it a go!
