It’s not often that I start off an engagement session sneak peak with a ring shot. However this is for sure one of my favorite ring shots to date. The ring is freakin’ aweseome and I’m thrilled about how it looked wedged in a an old train’s mechanical joint.
Patricia and Alex, thank you so much for sharing a fun couple of hours with us at the Gold Coast Railroad Museum. I’d never been there before and now that I have I want to go back! You guys were lots of fun and I was thrilled with a lot of what we got. Here are a couple of shots from the engagement session, I’ll have a few more up in a couple of days… and of course you’ll be able to see the full blog post soon on the Acromatico Blog.
No more words. Ladies and Gentlemen…. Patricia and Alex!
Fastest sneak peek ever! We actually finished shooting this session not two hours ago… but I decided I’d do whatever I could to try and beat the clock and get a sneak peek out while Jennifer and Stephen were still at their engagement party they went to immediately after the session. Here’s to hoping I made it 🙂
The session was nothing short of awesome, including such amazing things as getting chased off the premises by a barbaric hotel guard; falling into an incredibly dangerous man-eating-plant (that was pretty hilarious); and just creating amazing photos with these two beautiful peeps!
No more words. Ladies and Gentlemen…. Jennifer and Stephen!
Guys, we had a fantastic time with you, thanks for trusting us to create these for you! Enjoy your party and your vacation!
Stephen, thank you for your service to our country.
Sneak peek from a fun engagement session with Villardia and Jermaine.
We started off at the Morikami Museum and Gardens which is a great place to shoot, but it would be so nice if some of these places would have extended hours at least once or twice a week!
We finished the session on the beach, but of course you’ll have to wait for the full blog post in order to see shots from that 🙂
Now you see that last photo? Same photo twice, one next to the other, right? Think again! It’s actually a reversed stroboscopic three-dimensional photo. Yes, a 3D photo.
In order to see the 3d move about 4 feet back from the monitor and focus your eyesight at a point near your face (some people call that “crossing your eyes”, though it’s just what happens naturally when you focus up close) you will see the two images above shift until a third forms in the middle. That one will appear to be a completely realistic 3D image. Once you “got it” feel free to move in a bit closer to enjoy more of the details of the image.
First time out after the system switch. Yup you read it here first. Gone is the Canon Gear, we’re Nikon shooters now. Doesn’t matter to the clients… both systems are amazing, we just switched because it made sense for us, the Nikon gear seems to fit better with my way of doing things 🙂
Had a great engagement session with Mari Ann and Harold in Miami. Before I say anything else I have to share one image:
Now I know I’m not supposed to toot my own horn or anything… but
… damn that photo is HOT!
Last shot of the night too… a Steve Jobs if you will… you know “… one last thing” – I even titled it on the spot in my head when I took it “Angels and Demons”
We finished the session in an INCREDIBLE apartment owned by a friend of the couple, which overlooks the city of Miami… here’s a shot from the window a few minutes before I started shooting them against the city lights.
More will follow in the full post.
Guys, what can I say… It was awesome being able to spend time with you guys. We really appreciate that you pretended that everything was going super-smoothly even though due to some “we’re new with this Nikon stuff” things were much much clunkier than they usually are! You were awesome. We hope you enjoy the photos and can’t wait to show you more and shoot your amazing wedding!
One of our largest engagement session posts ever. We had SO MUCH FUN with these guys and managed to get so much variety in the set that I just couldn’t bring myself not to share all of our favorites 🙂
We hope you guys enjoyed your vacation and that you’ll enjoy seeing these now. Engagement portrait photography is one of our favorite things to do, and when the clients are as fun to work with as you it’s doubly so!
Of course you’ve probably seen a few of those in the sneak peek. The complete set is uploading to the proof server as I publish this. It will be available by clicking here and then going to the Weddings area.
Here’s the full set from Amelia and Carlos’ couple session on Hollywood Beach. Amelia and Carlos were a blast to photograph. We’d met them a couple of times before as we mentioned in our sneak peek post, and they come across as an incredibly down-to-earth couple who would be awesome to have over at a party 🙂
Handsome dude, gorgeous girl a great setting and some amazing clouds at sunset. What else could we ask for?
The full set is now live on our proof site. Click the link and then look in the Wedding category (we put all couples in Weddings group even if the session has nothing to do with a wedding).
Thank you Amelia and Carlos for spending a few hours with us and trusting to capture some images of this wonderful phase of your life!
