Lovely Outdoor Oakland Engagement Session
What are the components of an engagement shoot? Do you have to wear certain clothes? Do you have to select a certain location? Believe it or not, while all of these things are important, none of them are the key. The most essential element is you. It is about you and your partner. You both need to be relaxed and have fun which will reflect in the pictures. We have a shoot from Oakland, California that was simple but produced magnificent photos of the couple.
Eddy and Julia met in law school. But their session did not reflect the stuffiness of the courtroom. It was free, open and fun. The perfect atmosphere to get pictures simply showing how much you love each other. They were goofy and spontaneous. They caressed and held hands. But our favorite photos were when they are simply smiling. The joy was natural. The joy was infectious. You can not create this. It comes from deep within. This is what jumps off of the images from this shoot. This is what you want to obtain from an engagement shoot. Julia and Eddy showed that there isn't any magic formula to get great photos during an engagement session. Be yourselves. Relax and have fun. The camera will capture it and your photos will be priceless.
