Engagement Photography Tips via Fstoppers

By Christopher Lin on April 24th 2013


Engagement photography is a huge part of being a wedding photographer. Besides being very important to your clients, it’s an introduction of your work to a new audience, as these are often the first images the couples’ friends and family see. It’s also a chance to create amazing imagery, with full control of the time-of-day, location, and lighting.

      This would be great, wasn’t possible for me to travel to the Bahamas from the uk. A tutorial would be a great move as the script is wrote etc already. A comprehensive tutorial set showing the lighting techniques, posing and post production would be awesome the Bahamas thing was what, 2 full days? This would made a great product
