    In the sparkler shots, you never mentioned how you lit the couples’ faces. Did you use rear-curtain sync and flash them at the end of the exposure from off to the side of the camera or were they lit exclusively by the sparkler?

    Pye, great shots, knowing which focal length is used would be beneficial as well. :)

    Pye, seems like you’re shooting the same locations for most of your shoots. Do you find that your clients don’t mind it or should location scouting be an active part of doing business? Thanks!

      All locations for engagement sessions are chosen by our clients! They create a moodboard and we determine what the best location is depending on the weather, tide levels, and distance and then pitch it back to them to confirm that it is exactly what they want. 

      When shooting at locations we’ve photographed frequently, we still location scout to find unique and interesting angles to make each shoot different from before.

    Pye, How do you keep both in focus with such a low aperture?
    I always thought that I needed a F4 or higher to keep both sharp. Was I wrong? Beautiful work!!

      Pye stays at a lower aperture so that there is some depth and dimension in the images. At f/4 you see too much in focus which diverts the viewer away from the couple.
