Photographing engagement sessions in your city is all about the theme that you have decided to accomplish and capture for your clients. Using buildings, hotels, plantations, beaches, all are different and portray that in your final image. My clients for this particular engagement drove from Hilton Head, Sc. About 2.5 hrs, they wanted to enjoy the holy city but also were very interested in me capturing their engagement session. We walked around this beautiful city of Charleston, Sc, with so many photo opportunities. We got so many great engagement images but once again, it was all about my composition. The question is what are your trying to say in these images? What are you trying to let this person looking at this engagement image, know? Is it the hotel, the colors, the happiness in the client's engagement, how natural the image is, how having different contrast in clothes between them both, will have a huge impact on the image? Yes, all of those points exactly, more importantly, when I am in the studio and editing these images, using the proper software and technique for the image, by creating vibrant colors, is what sets this engagement image apart from others engagement photos.Keywords: Charleston (419), Engagement Photos (2), Harbor View Inn, Photography Techniques, sc (103).
