Engagement Photo Session at the kingston harbour with Lonnie And Daedrie-Ann

This is actually a throw back blog post that just never got published for some reason. Late December of 2012 I was approached by a couple who wanted an engagement photo session prior to their January wedding. They gave me complete creative control, I was able to choose the Location and time that I’d prefer for the session which I honestly some times prefer. I Scouted a few days earlier and decided I’d use the Kingston Waterfront as I’ve seen some amazing sunrises there. As long as they were on time for 6am, everything should be perfect.

Assisting was a friend of mine Mario Smith, he doesn’t shoot but he’s an excellent voice activated light stand *Grin*. Groom was early the bride cut it slightly close but everything fell into place as it should and the shoot was under way. The lighting was kept fairly simple as i tend to do on location. 1 light a relatively large diffuser and a speed light Boomed overhead and angled to my taste, Separation light was provided by The sun and it yielded amazing results. Here are a few of the images. The Fun loving and playful nature of the couple came out in the photo’s they had no issues expressing themselves and it translated well in the images.
