Jacksonville Senior Photographer // Scarlett Lillian Seniors: Rachel and Ariel are engaged!
BlogMenu

Feb 23, 2008

Rachel and Ariel are engaged!

One thing I love capturing on camera is the laugh a couple shares that tells them they want to laugh with that person for the rest of their lives. In editing the Engagement Session of Rachel and Ariel, it was rare to see a photo of them not smiling and laughing with each other. In the beginning of our shoot, they confessed to being shy at showing affection in public, but seeing their laughs together spoke more to me than any other PDA I could have captured for them. I love the challenge of discovering the unique love language each couple shares, and laughter is definitely what Rachel and Ariel speak to each other.

They also brought their other love and first child, Wendy, a cute beagle who was also shy in front of the camera. After a few shots with her, Rachel and Ariel brought out their old fashioned bikes (that they made themselves!) that they love riding up and down Jacksonville Beach together on lazy days. It was so much fun to document something they naturally love to do together.

Here are some of my faves and the slideshow below!  God blessed us with some amazing setting sunshine and I had fun playing around with all the juicy saturated rays backlighting their love! (Gorgeous setting sunshine is a photographer's favorite love language!)

Scarlett, Love how you were able to encourage them to express their obvious affection for one another. What settings do you use to get proper exposure on their faces with that wonderful backlighting? I have trouble getting enough light on the faces without blowing out the background. And I hate to use a flash! Thanks!

Adreanna- Honestly, I could care less about blowing the sky. To me what is more important is the exposure on their face. For the photos of them sitting on the beach with the sun behind them, my settings were 1/200 and f/4.5.

Rachel and Ariel- Thanks so much for your feedback! I had a blast with you guys and so excited that you love your photos!

Jess- Thanks girl! Atlantic Beach is always a fun area to shoot!

Jessica- Ha, I know it would be fun to hang. But I could never move away from the beach! I'm a true Florida girl!

E- I know, the beach and palm trees rock! And yes, very nice and warm here! :-)

I think my fav is the B&W of them looking at each other and laughing... and the dog is looking up at him! There is so much being said in that shot! Great job.

Brilliant Photo- Ha, thanks! I try not to "pose" but simply suggest ideas. A lot of the times they will take an idea and run with it!

Melissa- Awwww, thanks! I hope meet you at the wedding!

Amy- Ha, I know I miss you girl! We totally need to catch up. Everyone was ooing and awwing over your photos of me at the workshop. You have new fans!
