Looking like you belong together is much more important than forcing a perfectly matching appearance. Wear your regular stuff, things that represent who you are and make you feel comfortable… You can bring something easy to change in the go to have a wider variety of pics taken (we can carry them during the photo-shot).
Nice base colors are greens, blues, turquoise & blacks. Accents with more dominant colors like pink or red are great, but we recommend not using them as main colors as they tend to be too dominant (sample in first photo with the pink collar accent). Try keeping within a few colors that go well together (we suggest 3 colors, 2 is good, but no more than 4). It is fair to say it’s good to stay away from distracting patterns, couples should be the main focus. The matching style can be seen on the photo below.
Now that you know the basics:
Relax and have fun during your engagement session!
Round 2 for Grounds for Sculpture E-Session has another type of pics… Here, Al Ojeda is focusing more in kind of close ups (still showing some fabulous spots in the area) providing the couple with a variety of pictures…
So happy to be shooting Heather & Greg’s big day next year, they picked the Ocean Place Resort & Spa in Long Branch for their ceremony and reception… A Jersey Shore Wedding…
Tas & Anthony had their engagement session in NYC. Tas used to live in Manhattan, her dream was to have her engagement photos somewhere in the City… We started in front of the Plaza Hotel, and walked our way to the Bethesda Terrace in Central Park on a gorgeous summer day… Loved their casual style and how they had so much fun with a very refreshing and contagious attitude… Next, is their wedding, with a special theme: “fairytale”.
Truly, engagement sessions, are a great opportunity to get acquaintance with the photographers that will take care of the Big Day while learning a little bit about “posing” or creating the best “candids”, doing your thing but, acknowledging the camera’s presence… 🙂
Weddings, engagements, are not only work for those who are in the Wedding Industry, we enjoy and have fun while we do our job… 😉
Gorgeous Lulu was part of an engagement photoshoot yesterday at the Riverside Gardens Park in Red Bank… She wasn’t in all the photos, so as an assistant, I enjoyed baby-sitting this lovely pug while their owners got more pics taken… Of course, the couple’s photos will be hitting the blog soon…

Jennifer and Jeremy had their engagement photos taken at his 7 generations family owned farm… Oh wow, so the roots are from sometime in the 1700s, but today using modern technology as a way of taking care of business…
Jeremy spends his free time flying… He’s a pilot, and had his Cessna in the grounds, so we used the red aircraft for the pictures too… So cool !!!
Their German Sheppard, Tootsy, joined them at the end of the photoshoot…

For this cute couple, Matawan is the area where they live… Close by, Holmdel Park, is the spot they go often to walk, so they picked it for their engagement pictures… Also in it’s grounds, you have a special attraction: Longstreet Farm… About the farm: “It is a living history ranch where staff dressed in epoch dress re-create Monmouth County’s turn of the century farming life”… Here are some of the photos we took… 🙂
Can’t wait to shoot their wedding !!!
