Engagement: Rodney and Michelle

with 8 comments

What a difference a week makes. Last weekend we cancelled this engagement shoot due to cold, windy, rainy conditions. This weekend, we couldn’t have asked for better weather! Met up with the Rodney and Michelle at the Palace of Fine Arts for another go at their engagement photos. I’m posting a small sampling here, and more at the gallery section of my website, Enjoy!

With such a beautiful couple, gorgeous location, and perfect weather, what more could a photographer ask for? Make sure you check out more from the session at my website,, where the images are deliciously hi-resolution!

A little technical info:

This session was all about long focal lengths. On a day like this, you can expect lots of people to be at this beautiful location, including a bunch of other photographers with their respective clients. Shooting with my 70-200 f/2.8 racked out helped eliminate these distractions. Other gear involved:

Nikkor AFS 24-120mm f/4G VRII

Nikkor AFS 24mm f/1.4G

Nikkor AFS 16-35mm f/4G

SB-900 units, lastolite tri grip, Ezybox 24″x24″ for the strobist stuff.
