Last year, I had the distinct honor of shooting my “big” sister’s engagement shoot. At first I was pretty nervous just because I had never had to see my sister in a ‘romantic’ or ‘intimate’ setting but as we started shooting, I quickly realized that the day wasn’t about me and my immature fears. I was reminded that my job was to capture the love between two people and to ensure that I did everything within my power to make sure that this happens (even if it was for my own sister). As you can see from below I only shot the e-shoot, because I felt I couldn’t afford to miss any moments while shooting the ceremony. I did however manage to snap a few shots from my various vantage points throughout the day.
Roughly 3 years ago, I had an opportunity to attend a friend’s photo workshop where we drove around Toronto shooting pictures of an awesome couple. For many of us, it was our first exposure to an engagement type setting and the experience was invaluable for me. What I remember from that day is that I had by far the ghettoest camera and the least amount of skills, but I was pretty happy with the way my pictures turned out. More importantly, I can vividly recall the amount of fun I had that day shooting pictures of a couple that was and is so clearly in love. Here are some of the pictures from that day;
