Veronika & Kyle’s Engagement Shoot

I hope everyone had a great summer and is enjoying the nice cool temperatures we are getting in the Northeast as Fall approaches. I just finished having my website redesigned and am able to update this blog again. Last month I had an engagement shoot with some great clients at a local Botanical Garden.

We started an hour before sunset to give us more chances of finding shady spots with nice flat lighting. There were still some nice pockets of golden hour light, so it was perfect and I had plenty of options when editing afterwards. We had time for an outfit change and found some nice spots while making our way around the gardens to all of the locations I had planned out beforehand.

I mainly shot on the Canon 5DSR that I recently purchased and this was only the second time I have used it aside from a trip to Tennessee my wife and I took earlier in the summer. I am very impressed with the image quality on the 50MP sensor especially when cropping in post production. Since the ISO capabilities are where this new workhorse lacks, I always carry my Canon 5DIII with me as well. For this shoot I was using the Canon EF 70-200mm 2.8 and the Canon EF 24-70mm 2.8 for portraits. I always use my Canon 100mm 2.8 macro for the engagement ring shots. While I love my full-frame setup and have been using it for close to a decade now, I think I may have to switch to mirrorless for this upcoming wedding season. I have some more editing to do from recent weddings and events so check back soon for more. Thanks!
