My sister, Kelley, got engaged this past December and I was so excited when they asked me to do their engagement pictures. Working for Julie Melton of Sweetwater Portraits constantly exposes me to really incredible wedding and engagement photography. This is because Julie comes from a fine art background and roots all of her work in that creativity.
For me, my portraiture has mostly been rooted in the fashion realm thanks to my work at United By Blue. While I love doing more fashion styled photographs, it was a new experience directing people who haven’t modeled before. But after the first few minutes and a couple jokes, Kelley and Kyle really did a great job of just enjoying themselves.
Overall, I loved this experience and look forward to doing more engagement portraits in the coming months. If you are interested contact me.
