It’s possible I’m the reason they’re getting married. Alayne came to my studio last year and wanted me to do a portrait of her. Something she could use online. We had a good time taking pictures and she used one for one of her profile pictures here and there. Turns out, that lovely picture caught the attention of Greg, they met, fell in love, and now they are getting married. I take all the credit. Well, I take some of the credit. Ok, I think it’s cute and don’t take any of the credit.

Meet Alayne and Greg. Engaged, now, and soon to be wed. I’ll be there to photograph the happy day.

Engagement portrait sessions are some of my favorite things to photograph. And particularly when it’s such a fun couple to hang around with for an hour or two.

Meet Kevin and Laruen.

Park City Engagement pictures

by justin on January 14, 2014

in Engagements

Kristen and Clay came to Park City, Utah from San Antonio to spend a little time in the mountains after Christmas. And while here, thought it would be a great idea to do their engagement pictures. I agree. They wanted winter engagement pictures in the snow since there’s never any snow in San Antonio.

Meet Kristen and Clay, photographed near Deer Valley on the last day of 2013.

Coryn and Scott are getting married in December. Ahhh, yes. A winter wedding. Romantic.

I had only met Scott once before when they came to discuss wedding plans, but I’ve known Coryn for a while, now, and she’s just as lovely, sweet, and kind and she comes across in the pictures. I think it comes from her mother.

Salt Lake engagement portraits

in Engagements

I like these two so much. I met them in 2008 when I did the very first year of the 30 Strangers project. That first year, it was just individuals, not mothers and daughters. Andrew came in on day fourteen. Betty came with him. I liked them right away. They were together–boyfriend/girlfriend–and have been (most of the time) ever since. And now, they are engaged. I’m looking forward to photographing their wedding in June.

Meet Andrew and Betty. They’re in love.

Mike lives in North Carolina, but came to Park City, Utah to propose to his girlfriend. They had reservations at Talisker for dinner, and he hired me to wait until they left the restaurant, then follow them up the street where Mike would ask Liza to marry him. She had no idea I was there, ready to photograph the wedding proposal.

Salt Lake Engagement Pictures

by justin on September 21, 2012

in Engagements

Cory and Nate are engaged. Aren’t they a good looking couple? Well, they live in Seattle now, but have some history in Salt Lake, so they wanted to get their engagement pictures taken in Salt Lake instead of in Seattle. So that’s just what we did. All of these engagement pictures were taken in downtown Salt Lake, a block or two from the main library.

Here’s how I take engagement pictures.

We meet somewhere and talk for a little bit. I ask them how they met and I ask them about their wedding and what they study in school or where they went to college. That sort of thing.

This conversation has two purposes. First of all, I like people and I like hearing about their story. I get this from my mom. She’s genuinely interested in others and I love that about her. So that’s the first reason I ask people about themselves. Because I really want to know. The second reason is because it puts people at ease and that’s a good state to be in when you’re getting your picture taken.

Next, we’ll walk around and just see what looks good. I’m looking mostly for really great light. The background and surroundings are far less important to me than the light.

Then I have them walk together, kiss, laugh, hug–they do that stuff naturally anyway, and I am there to snap it up. Oh, sure, I sometimes tweak their pose a little, but for the most part, I’m just letting them enjoy spending time together.

What I want are flattering images of the couple that look like they don’t even know I’m there. Something genuine and real.

If you’re a photographer and have a different approach, I’d love to hear it. Feel free to leave a comment and let me know your process.

Engagement photos – Claire + Ben

by justin on February 3, 2012

in Engagements

Ben sent an email and told me he was getting married and wanted to know if I was interested in working with them. I like emails like that. And I like couples like Ben and Claire. So I’m going to photograph their wedding soon, but first things first. Engagement pictures. We started in my studio where it’s warm and cozy, then headed outside and up Provo Canyon. It was a little chilly, sure, but we went to the place where Ben proposed, and I think the memory of such things might have added an extra bit of warmth.

Me: Claire, did you know he was going to ask you that night?
Claire (smiling): Well, Ben can’t keep a secret.
