Happy 2022 everyone! With the Holidays, I am just getting around to posting about my last Engagement session of 2021. I was so glad we still had beautiful foliage for Amber and Connor on the day of their engagement shoot and we got even luckier with some perfect weather. Not to mention this was at the Ramapo County Reservation, where my wife and I did our engagement photos years back so it will always have a special place in my heart.
This session was part of their wedding package and I am so excited to also be photographing their wedding later this year in 2022. Like most of my couples, they were concerned about not having much experience in front of the camera and not being photogenic, but like all my couples, they were absolute naturals! The chemistry between the two of them was so visible when I was doing their photos that I knew all of these final images would be perfect and I could not wait to start editing as soon as we parted ways.
I was really hoping for some colorful leaves to get close-up photos of Amber’s gorgeous engagement ring and I had a specific shot in my mind that I wanted to replicate. I was so happy when that shot materialized and both of them were just as excited as me when I showed them a preview during the shoot. I am absolutely loving my L-series Canon 100mm 2.8 Macro lens for ring photos and it is slowly becoming my favorite lens not only for jewelry but also for portraits. You just cannot beat the crispness of a prime lens. I am looking forward to a productive 2022 with all of my couples and clients and I cannot wait for the weddings that I have booked already. I do still have a few weekends available for weddings or any other shoots and I would love the opportunity to discuss if you or anyone you know are looking for a photographer. Happy New Year and I wish everyone a safe, happy, and successful 2022.
