Gabrielle and Brad . Engagement Session

Gabrielle and Brad are about to throw an amazing wedding party with all the Chicago essentials (Portillo’s chocolate cake, Garrett’s popcorn, Lou Malnati’s pizza…)! But before we can get to all of that, we did an engagement shoot. These two are a lot of fun and are really in love, can’t you tell?! The fall colors were beautiful and the sunset lighting made for some amazing photographs. As the last little bit of sun disappeared from the sky we ended up at Gabrielle’s house for some fantastic trampoline shots…have fun looking at these images, and keep your eyes peeled for their wedding coming soon!

I was wondering if you used a flash on the 6th post of this session: http://rojofotodesign.com/photography/gabrielle-and-brad-engagement-session/
If so, what kind?
They look so fantastic :)

Hi Glenda! Thanks for the kind words! I counted 6 photographs into the post (including the two verticals that were together), and yes, I did use a flash on that image you mention. (Holding hands, eyes closed) This was just a Nikon SB-900 with the bounce card pulled up. A really simple setup! :) I love your images…just browsed through flickr! Good stuff! Thanks for stopping by.

Molly and Steve Engaged

It was one of those days where you might get some clear weather for just a window of time…but we were all surprised by the beautiful day it actually turned out to be. Molly and Steve are getting prepared for their November 5th wedding, and we were able to fit in an engagement shoot before the big day! The apple orchard made for a lovely setting and although these guys were nervous at first, we got some wonderful images! Enjoy the highlights…

Gorgeous!

Molly and Steve Engagement Preview

The weatherman tried to scare us out of this engagement session, but we kept our “play it by ear” positive attitudes and ended up with a beautiful day. Molly and Steve drove out from Chicago for the perfect orchard setting with the beginning of the fall colors showing on the trees. We were thankful that the rain turned into drizzle, and then ended, making way for the sunshine. In between getting some great shots I also had to get some insight on proper comma usage in writing. I jokingly expressed my nervousness of my emails being read by two people who really know their grammar (ie. Molly and Steve)!  Enjoy this preview of their engagement session…and I am looking forward to celebrating with Molly and Steve on November 5th!
