Halibut St Park Engagement Session
One of the things I love about photography is the ability to capture something that will only happen once. This is especially the case when working with people, and even more so with wedding photography. Add two people who are super into each other, a killer sunset, and picturesque scenery and it's hard to take a bad photo.
The weather and location tie into this as well and when, after weeks of planning, the sun does exactly what you were hoping for, it's a huge rush. Allison and Maicom added to this energy during our shoot and the result was a photographer's dream. The only hard part here was trying not to get over-excited and take way too many photos.
Halibut State Park is the perfect blend of rocky coastline, winding trails, and scrubby brush. There are tons of nooks and tucked away spots to explore, making the park seem much larger than it actually is. This is great for those who haven't had professional photos taken before, or are just nervous about the session. Having something physical to do like walking and exploring gives them something else to focus on, creating more natural and candid moments.
Needless to say, I can't wait to hang out with Allison and Maicom again this summer for their wedding in Rhode Island!
Outfit Tip for Couples:
When going on an engagement shoot, try to wear comfortable clothing you can move around in. This gives you one less thing to worry about and helps you relax. Simple, non patterned neutrals will also direct attention to you instead of your clothing!
