Photographing couples is not what I do very often. When I get inquiries from people I don't know, I will refer them to one of my friends who actually specialize in weddings. Same thing when people want me to photograph their kids, dogs, or baby bellies. When I do get the opportunity to photograph weddings or engagements, I welcome the chance. I think of it as a palate cleanser between all the winery and event stuff I do.
A few months back, my buddy Jake asked me to photograph him and his fiancé for their engagement. We went out last night to get some images of them at the Flora Springs Estate winery where Jake works. We had vines, caves, old trucks, hills, and a setting sun to play with. We had a great time, and (I think) we came away with some pretty good images.
