    This past weekend I had the opportunity to shoot the engagement portraits for Brittany and Patrick. They really had a great time, and I think that their love comes through in the photographs. You can view more on our blog.

    The feet picture would have been better if you had the focal point on her feet instead of his.

    4 has a very sensual feel. I'm sure they'll like that shot. All of them look nice though.

    Wow Tim, those are awesome! May I ask, what lens do you use to shoot your portraits? And what are your PP techniques?

    Thanks Jamie,

    I use Nikon D2X,and the 80-200 2.8, and 17-55 2.8 lens for this series of images. I also use 50 1.4 and 85 1.4 for my portrait work. I love to photograph in soft lighting with the strongest light coming from behind the subject. These were all shot in raw, brought into Lightroom and the best ones flagged, then color corrected with my custom presets added, finally I add the final touches in Photoshop, I love Kevin Kubota's actions and can't recommend them enough.

    Oh wow, I absolutly love these. The only thing I would say is I agree about the focus being on his feet instead of hers. But I just love these, engagement sessions are so much fun b/c there is just so much emotion going on to capture!! Great job!

    I agree that the foot shot would have looked better with the focus on the girl's feet. I actually focused on the jewelry on her ankle. If I did that shot again I will have stopped down more for more depth of field, but I'm just nitpicking.
