Seattle Wedding and Engagement Photography | Alki Beach

Today we were at Alki Beach, right by Salty's Seafood Restaurant in Seattle We would love to introduce Amanda & Aaron. We just love photographing people during their Engagement Session. This cute and vibrant engaged couple are holding her man with majestic views of Seattle and the Puget Sound in the background This picture was taken at Alki Beach, right on Harbor Avenue Southwest on August 30, 2015 around 5:00pm. Camera gear is super important, and photographing the subject just right is something we take very seriously. We used the Canon EOS 5D Mark III with a EF 70-200mm f2.8 lens and a Speedlite flash system. to photograph them. When photographing our subjects, careful consideration is paid to every aspect of the picture. But with this, a lot of stuff goes right. For example, in this picture it was taken when the sun went behind the clouds, which provided a lot of shade, which is great for pictures There were some challenges with this picture. For example, dealing with harsh, direct sunlight is a challenge, even for the most skilled and professional of photographers. We overcome this by finding shade, or using a scrim to shield the subject from direct and harsh sunlight. As a wedding and engagement photographer, we not only look at the picture. Taking great engagement pictures means looking at the whole entire scene, not just the subject you want to take a picture of. For example, colors. Colors are very important as they draw the attention of the viewer to the picture. In this particular photograph, Amanda is wearing a blue shirt and Aaron is wearing a grey button up shirt with his sleves rolled up. Photography for your special event is fun.
