Love on the Tracks

I was asked by some neighbors to take engagement photos for their daughter. I always enjoy engagement shoots for how fun and happy the couple is for the outing. They are always willing to have fun posing, and of course whenever I ask them to kiss they readily comply!

I tend to take a lot of shots at any photo shoot, and engagement shoots are no exception. I like to catch the actual pose and smile that I am trying to set up, but also all the before and after while they are laughing and having fun. I like to put them in some fun situations and just see how they do. Not all the shots end up being perfect for the actual engagement invitation use, but many end up on shelves and scrapbooks later on. This is one that isn’t perfect in terms of having both of them looking at the camera or away, but I think the low and twisted angle and their piggyback pose all work for a fun image.

Courtney and Denton were a lot of fun to work with, and I look forward to photographing their wedding and reception later.

P.S. Not sure if anyone would get the Neil Diamond reference, but I thought it was fun 🙂
